I had a form that I created in Acrobat and further added some features using LiveCycle. Pressing a button on the form was making it readOnly.
By saving it in Acrobat with proper rights, in Reader, I was able to fill the form, make it readOnly and save it.
This was working fine until I decided to make some modification to it in LiveCycle. I did that and again saved in Acrobat with proper rights.
Now in Reader, I'm able to fill it, make it readOnly and save it but next time that I open the form in the Reader, it's not readOnly anymore.
As you see it was possible first and then got broken. I have no clue why the form does not save the readOnly access property.
It becomes readOnly when I press the button and stays like that until I close it, though.
Any help would be highly appreciated,

Open the form in Designer, under the File/Form Properties/Defaults menu option make sure the preserve scripting changes radio button is set to Automatic.
Save the file and try it again.
