    Hello,

    Thank you for posting this video. I have been searching online for quite sometime now trying to figure out how to enable Reader users to save the form data and have not been able to figure it out yet. However, your video explained the whole thing and made it look so easy.

    Thank you for posting this video.

    Mike –
    You have explained exactly what I am trying to accomplish….
    But, I have Adobe version 9 – Standard. The ‘save as’ feature does not have the same options as what you are showing. Do I need to upgrade to Adobe X – Standard to be able to accomplish what you have explained??????
    Thanks –
    David

  4. I have Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional, and none of these options are visible in the “Save As” menu. How do I get these extra features to show up?

    Good video: to the point. What is the best way to distribute a form that multiple, dispursed people need to have an input to, such as a performance review? Thank you in advance.

    Thanks! This feature used to be under the ADVANCED menu option but in Acrobat X it looks like its been moved under the File–>Save AS. Thanks for the video.

    I have Acrobat 8. Professional, and the options presented in the video under “Save As” menu are not included. Are these features extras not included in the software and if so where can I download them. Thanks in advance.

    Is there a way I can make fields required? I did created my form in Acrobat Pro X V.10.1.3, and when I use the document in that, it forces me to fill out the fields I set as required, but in Reader it does not force me to complete the same fields before I save it.

    This is a great video, however, I am using Adobe Acrobat 7 (not 8) and the “Save As” menu options shown in the video are not available, the only option available is “Save As” to choose a file extension. We just upgraded to Windows 7 with Acrobat Reader X.

    Great Video. Ok. so now that they have filled the form and sent it back to me, I can still edit the form they sent me. This is a security problem because I can change the data they sent me!

    How do I prevent that?

  12. Amanda

    I have the same problem as everyone else. I have Adobe Pro Version 9.
    Go to Advanced > Extend Features in Adobe Reader
    Problem solved!

    Hi,
    I would like to know, if with Acrobat pro 8, there is the possibility to do something like a “batch processing” to enable the usage right in Acrobat Reader.
    I have a lot of file and I need to add this feature on each file.
    if it is helpful I’m using a mac
    Thank you in advance for help / reply!!
