    Acrobat DC forces Save As

    drewk95291282

      I'm on Acrobat Reader DC 2015.010.20059, Windows 10 10586.104, and saving my PDF's into a synced Google Drive folder.

       

      I'm filling out forms that were created in Acrobat for Word.

       

      From time to time, I'll make small changes to an open form, then when I go to save it, or close it (which prompts for a save) Acrobat forces me to Save As, instead of simply save the filled out form. Sometimes stuff gets overwritten with this Save As stuff, and I end up appending a .2 to the end (and so on) to avoid overwriting other documents with the Save As.

       

      Why would Acrobat insist on Save As vs a regular Save if I've only made small changes to an open document?

       

      thanks, drew
