I have just upgraded to PDF Architect Pro. I wish to create Forms with Editable Fill & Save fields. I wish to send the form via email to clients to complete and return back to me by clicking on a "Submit/Return by Email" button inserted in the form.
When I test this, after opening the PDF form in Adobe Reader completing it by filling in the fields and then clicking on the "Submit by Email" button I keep getting a message that any data inserted in this form cannot be saved. The form is returned via email without any saved data.
I would have thought this would be a standard feature in creating PDF forms with editable fields, so I must be doing something wrong. Appreciate any help.
have you checked the security permissions of the PDF?
Maybe a security option which disables filling in form fields is active.
Hello, I have the same problem and the solution offered doesn’t work. Let me explain:
I want to create standard unsecure PDF form. I want it to behave like other normal PDF forms, e.g. if I open the PDF it displays a violet bar on the top informing me that it is a form and that I can save the values only.
I don’t want to turn on security permissions. I’ve explored every option in PDFarchitect and don’t know how to do this. No matter how I try I can’t create a PDF form with the violet bar on top, PDF architect only creates normal PDF and the data cannot be saved. Exactly like trevormc says.
I tested a bit here, and it seems Adobe Reader requires the filled out form to be saved under a different filename, then it will work (when using the standard adobe send as email attachment button). This is an Adobe restriction and we unfortunately can´t do anything about it.
Same thing is happening to me. When I try to “save as” under another name the following window pops up… “Save a blank copy of this form. Data typed into this form cannot be saved. Adobe reader can only save a blank copy of this form. Please print a completed copy of this form if you would like a copy for your records.” Beside this is a “print form” button.
