    Security Settings blocking data export to FDF file in Reader

    mandrill22 Level 1

      I created a form in Acrobat Pro that has fillable text fields, radio buttons, drop-downs etc. I created a button which executes a JavaScript method to export all field data to an FDF file. This works fine if the PDF is opened in Acrobat Pro, and the FDF opens fine in Reader. But when opening the file in Reader the JavaScript console tells me that the method is not allowed due to security settings for the document. When I check the security settings  for the document in Pro, it shows everything as "allowed". The same document when opened in Reader shows several permissions "not allowed". I am guessing that these restrictions are preventing the button from working. How do I remove these restrictions?
