I am new to the forum, and certainly new to Adobe Acrobat. I have always used Reader but never got into editing/creating PDFs until I started working for a firm where I have to create forms for customers. The forms are created in LiveCycle designer ES3. Everything is going jolly good until the signing part. So, I go to Acrobat XI standard -> Save as Other -> Reader Extended PDF -> Enable Forms Fill-In & Save-In Adobe Reader". I overwrite my original file with this one. Now, I can save the filled-out form but cannot possibly sign it at all. In reader, I go to Files -> Properties -> Security and BAM! "Signing: Not Allowed".
My only conclusion is that I need Adobe Acrobat XI Pro. Before, I proceed further with this, can someone please confirm this or help out with the problem?
Thanks in advance!
You can't enable LCD forms with Acrobat. You need a special application from the LiveCycle family to do so.
Let me clarify a little bit:
- Create forms in LCD.
- Save as "Adobe Dynamic XML Form (*.pdf)"
- Open that file in Adobe Acrobat XI Standard.
- Save as Others -> Reader Extended PDF -> Enable forms fill-in & save-in Adobe Reader"
- Save the PDF.
After that, when I open that rights-enabled pdf, it is only able to save the filled out information but cannot sign in the signature field at all.
That's the problem.
