We don't currently support making changes to protected files on Reader for iPhone and iPad. I realize that's in inconvenience, but for now you'll need to use the Mac or Windows version.
Thanks for the response. It's disappointing that this feature isn't currently supported.
That being said, if the password is removed, can users of Acrobat Reader DC for iOS
make any changes to a forms' format, layout, change fields from read only?
Or does it just let them save the file?
On mobile, we do not currently support making any changes to form field attributes or layout. We support only form fill-in.
Here's what I need to do:
1. Send the form to end users who will fill it out and then sign it.
2. Email the form to their Supervisor for review and signature (possibly printing).
3. Supervisor emails the form to client for printing and electronic storage.
The caveat's are:
1. Once the form is signed by the first user, all fields are locked except for the Supervisor's
signature and date fields.
2 The form is completely locked after the Supervisor signs and dates it.
3. The form needs to be resettable for the first user to be able to use it again for the next location (saved locally on the device).
I also need help with naming the form file when it is emailed instead of the original file name.
I'd like to parse out the name from data entered on the form.
I can send you a copy of the form privately. I can't post it for security reasons.
From your description, I think the correct tool for this is actually Adobe Sign, not Acrobat.
Give it a try (there is a 14-day free trial): Adobe Sign, e-signatures online, formerly EchoSign | Adobe Document Cloud
