Interactive PDF

I made a PDF file out of InDesign and add/edit fields in Acrobat (Adobe Acrobat Pro 9.0).  I had Acrobat recognize the field areas.  Now I need to save this and email it to people so that they can enter the information and either email or fax it to me.  When I email it to people, as soon as they click to start entering info they get a warning box that says "Please Note: You cannot save a completed copy of this form on your computer. If you would like a copy for your records, Please fill it in and print it"

Is there a way to save an interactive PDF? I am not really interested in using Acrobat to collect my info going through Form Wizard.

Thanks! :)


RE: Interactive PDF

Hi troika002

Open the form in Acrobat 9, keep form editing closed.
Go under Advanced
Then Extend Features in Adobe Reader
Then save as.
I would use a different name and keep original in case you need to make further changes later on.

Thanks for the reply!  You are a lifesaver :)
