If I place my newly created PDF form on my web page, what is the simplist way I can have my clients fill it out and send it back to my email so it is a filled in PDF. I want to avoid any programing if possible. I find many of my clients are having trouble with the PDF via their email.
If your clients will only have Reader, as opposed to Acrobat, then you will need to Reader-enable the document. To do so:
Acrobat 9: Advanced > Extend Features in Adobe Reader
Acrobat 10: File > Save As > Reader Extended PDF > Enabled Additional Features
But be aware that if you distribute such an enabled document to more than 500 recipients (as you do when placing the document on a publicly available web site), you are allowed to use no more than 500 forms that have been returned to you, including hard copies. This is an Acrobat licensing restriction.
When I email the PDF out.. why is it embeded in my email and not sent out as an attachment?
