Many thanks Bernd.
If I understand correctly, I'll need version 8 of Acrobat Pro for that (enable usage rights in adobe reader), and we're not allowed to upgrade. Is there any other way of achieving this?
You can't add forms rights with Acrobat Pro. You can do it with the server product 'Adobe LiveCycle Reader Extensions'.
Ahh- in that case, I'll need another solution if there is one. All I'd like to do is supply a downloadable PDF with a hidden page, which can be unhidden, printed and rehidden from a button on a visible page.
Thanks again Bernd.
I cannot see why you want to hide it, but allow printing, but that is
not really relevant.
Why not put the hidden page on the web. If they click the button the
page on the web appears and can be printed. Simple, but requires web
connectivity. An alternative is to put the needed page as an attachment
to the document.
The reason I would like to hide this page is that it will be a monochrome data list on A4 (to quickly print and take away as a shopping list effectively) and the other pages will be 4:3 with interactivity and navigation. However, I take your point that hiding it is cosmetic and not entirely necessary - I could just place it at the end and not have navigation to it.
We can only deliver each PDF as a single file download from the store so can't do attachments; I thought about having a link to a page and that way we could more easily include up-to-date data, but as you say that requires connectivity... and server space, etc. I'll investigate.
Not an email attachment, but an attachment to the pdf file. The person
downloads the pdf file. You can attach the file as a comment within the
pdf file. You even have a choice of icons. I favor the paper clip.
Got it! Many thanks Mike, and Bernd.
Just make sure you never attach a zip file. Adobe has decided they are a
security risk so you can attach, but NEVER extract the zip attachment.
