>Would Adobe Acrobat Pro be required for his clients to save the completed form with a digital signature then email the completed forms?
No. They can use Acrobat Standard as well. There is a way (using Pro) to enable the forms for Reader users so they can save them afterward.
> Are there any reasons why using fillable forms for this is a bad idea?
If they plan on having the form filled out and saved in Reader (after enabling it) there is a 500 use limit. It's basically not a good option for business use. Unfortunately, to enable it for anything higher than the 500 use limit requires a very expensive server side option.
My company just converted and loaded all out forms as fillable pdfs without knowing about this error. Where do I find the instructions on how to change the setting and what are the costs associated with it? If we can't be open to all users then we will have to go back to our word forms.
Fillable isn't an issue. If you create forms that are fillable AND saveable for Reader users, then it could be a problem.
Yes, they need to be savable. Sorry I was not clear. So how do I do it - right now there is an error that they cannot be saved filled for people with only reader - and how much does it cost beyond 500?
It would help if you explained how and by whom the forms will be used. For example, will they be used only by employees of your company? If so, how many? How will the resulting filled-in form be used? Do they need to be used by the general public? The more information you provide the better because the details are important.
You can create fillable form in word and have your patient fill them and faxed them to u you do not need to have PDF. You just need to create form in word so they can fill them out in their comoputer and digitally signed them and send back to u via email or fax. I hope this answers your issue.
If you need we can create form according to your requirmnts. Let us know.
I am trying to create am Adobe Reader document from a Word document.
I need to allow the users to fill out the required information on the document, however, I do not want them to print the document or copy the existing text.
I have already figured out how to prevent them from printing and copying by selecting these options when creating the Adobe document, however, I am having difficulty figuring how to allow them to fill out the required areas on the document.
Can anyone help me?
Questions like this should be posted in the Acrobat forum. You will need
to create the form fields. How to do so depends upon your version of
Acrobat. Acrobat 9 has a form fields wizard. Earlier versions as well as
9 have a form field tool. You then have to decide if you want users to
be able to save the data in the form fields. To do this you need to
enable extended reader rights.
