    Title:
    how to make form fillable and saveable
    Content:

    Good Morning!

    I have converted my PDF to a fillable form but when I send it or post it on our website for people to use, save to mail in they can't. They can only print it. What do I need to do to enable people to fill out and save onto thier computer?

    Thanks

      Do you know what program they are using to complete the form?  Are they using Adobe Reader?  Nuance Reader?

      I have this same problem.  I'm using PDF Converter Professional and Windows 7.  The person I'm sending to is using a Macbook and Adobe Reader (not sure which version).  I need to send a form to be completed and returned but the user is unable to save it.

      They would need to use the Nuance PDF Reader or another PDF reader (but not Adobe Reader) that allows one to save their entries.

       

      From Nuance PDF Reader page:  "Even fill out and save PDF forms."

      Adobe Reader requires the PDF to be enabled by Adobe software to allow the user to save data.  From the Adobe Reader page:  "Electronic form submission - Fill, save, sign, and electronically submit forms that have been Reader enabled by Adobe LiveCycle® ES2 or Adobe Acrobat® software."
