I have created a 20 page interactive PDF in InDesign CC 2015 which has over 100 hyperlinks. This is to be supplied to our client, it will then be circulated globally. The problem that we are having is when the PDF is opened up in Acrobat, a green alert bar appears at the top of the screen with the message: This file includes fillable form fields. You can print the completed form and save it to your device or Acrobat.com. We don't want this green bar to appear, is there something we can do to the PDF (not Acrobat) to stop this from happening? We want the person who receives and opens up the PDF to not have this green bar appear or not have to do anything to make it go away.
It would be great if someone has an answer for this.
Hi Welshy 2008
This feature is enabled in Acrobat 10 and 11 as design.
However, you can change the Preferences so that it won't appear,for that,
Go to >Edit>Preferences>Forms>Check the box which says "Always hide forms document message bar".
In Acrobat and reader Dc, this green message bar has been disabled by default.
Whilst it is not a solution, the following is helpful for the recipient of the PDF document: Turning off the Annoying Signature Status Bar in Acrobat XI . Using this method places the tick in the check-box mentioned by Shivam, without the need of going through the "Preferences". As you see from the link title, this method also works for the annoying Signature alert bar too, so is really worth knowing. It is certainly not intuitive that's for sure!
