Yes. What you should do is actually submit the form, which is NOT the
same thing as e-mailing it at all. This is what happens on any web
page. The information is sent to a script on a web server; a
programmer then makes it do other stuff like update a database or send
But Create PDF Online isn't involved.
Try the Acrobat or LiveCycle Designer forum, according to the software
you are using.
Hello. I am a graphic designer and I am looking for info on how to produce a PDF form that I can sent to them - have them fill it out (like the previous poster) and them have them just re-email it back as an attachment. When I created the document in MS Word, I created the fields that I needed to be filled out etc including a drop down selection for the fonts and text colors. When I create the PDF, I can't fill out these forms or use the pull down menus. I am not too savy when it comes to MS Word - I usually only work in Photoshop, Quark etc.
Any info would be greatly aapreciated.
Is there a preference that I need to select before creating the PDF?
You can't make a form in Word and convert that directly to a form in
Acrobat. You have to make the form in Acrobat.
When I create a PDF form and insert a SUBMIT EMAIL button, all I get back is the form data. What I want is the filled in form as an attachment.
The guide says you can get either way, but I cannot find how to get it to send the filled in form. Suggestions?
You cannot make forms with Create PDF Online. I suspect you want
EITHER the Designer forum or the Acrobat Windows forum, according to
what you are using to make the form.
I have created a fillable form using LifeCycle. However, like most of the previous e-mails, rather than receiving the form data when the user hits "e-mail" I'd like to know if I could receive the entire filled form as an attachment. This form is available to users on a shared network folder.

Use the Designer forum.
how can i use rss;
is it differece between sites like wordpress etc.
What if you are on a Mac and not a PC?
You can use the 'Create Adobe PDF Online' service from a Mac.
I have created a form that is going psycho on me. I added it to our web server for email link distribution to specific families. When I fill out the form - it works marvelously (of course) but when my co-workers fill it out they get various problems:
1 - For my boss, (Acrobat Reader) the "To" field appears empty and when she clicks send - it goes nowhere.
2 - For our programmer, (Acrobat 8 Professional) a different email address appears in the "To" field (one we used in a previous form)
The form was working perfectly when I left work Tuesday afternoon, then totally shot (even for me) yesterday, and now today - it's working for me but not the others.
Is this a glitch?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
I developed a from using Lifecycle Designer8 and saved it as a PDF. I tried to enable rights in Adobe Professional8 but it getting an error message :This document could not be reader enabled" I want for users to complete the form and be able to save it or email the form. The form has an email button, but users cannot save the data they entered.
Can someone please help.
