I'm having a problem with a PDF form on my website. I've tested it up and down with no problems, yet I'm getting feedback that users complete the form, click "submit" and nothing happens...and I don't get the form using form central.
I've determined that the problem is that users are completing the form in a web browser, rather than in adobe reader/acrobat.
I would like to make a change to the form, or something with my site that would automatically open the pdf in a viewer (or detect if the user does not have Acrobat) - versus having to hope that the user follows the directions that I've posted to my site.
Yes, unfortunately when you post a PDF online as you discovered it does not work right when filled out in a web browser and you want/need users to download the PDF and use Adobe Reader or Acrobat to fill out the PDF. It sounds like you are likely doing what you can - directing users as to what to do, you can see if you can get a good recommendation from the Acrobat forums on this topic (it is a general PDF issue and not specific to FormsCentral): http://forums.adobe.com/community/acrobat
