  • Anyone have Adobe Acrobat Pro 7 or 8?

    OK, we've had some technical problems here. I have a copy of the brackets in PDF format, and I wanted it to be fillable but apparently my version of Acrobat Pro won't do this properly. Does anyone have access to Acrobat Pro 7 or 8 who can possibly take a look at this PDF, save it with open access so that anyone can fill it out and save it? I would be very appreciative.

    This is with Pro 6, Brian.

    Not sure if this helps.

      That one still doesn't seem to be able to be filled in on screen and saved.

        The one I built was also in Acro Pro 6. For some reason, no matter how I save it, the person on the other end can only print, but not save the form. This is even with all security disabled on my end. I have a feeling this is a problem with Adobe Reader in that there is some incompatibility when reading PDFs from this older version (like it ignores the security).

                Assuming of course sombody can do a screen shot. I've never done one in my life. Seriously.

                  Easy...

                  Right next to F12 is PrtScrn... put what ever you want on your screem... pres PrtScrn... then open Paint... click on Edit (top left)... click Paste... The image will then paste from the clipboard... enlarge if asked... Click on File (further top left)... Click Save As... Name it (preferably as a JPEG)... choose a file to drop it in... Save.

                  Then post it as an attachment. After the initial post, I also opened the attachment... took the url and made it an image in the post editor & reposted the edit, though this is not required, the file will still be an attachment.

                    Please note this may not be the final bracket, as this is just a test version.

                      Does this work for you?

                      I have 8 Pro and your doc was open for me??

                        Oops... missed this thread a couple weeks ago, but just wanted to pipe up now.

                        The regular Acrobat Reader does not have the ability to save data that has been entered into a form. It has been this way as long as I can remember, and has been a pain in the butt for that long as well.

                        A nice solution I've found at work is the Foxit PDF Reader, available as a free download here: http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/rd_intro.php

                        It saves data that you've typed into the form, so that anyone else with the Foxit reader can view it (though the Adobe Reader will still not recognize it). Also is much more streamlined than Adobe's bloatware, and has some other nice UI features as well.

                        I've been rolling it out onto the PCs at work instead of the Adobe Reader, purely for the ability to save form data alone. That comes close to being worth it's weight in gold for me.
