We are using Acrobat 9 Professional to create fillable forms and all employees have been updated to Acrobat 9 Reader. The employees can fill out the forms, but the text disappears when they move off a form. They cannot print. I can see and print the information in Acrobat Pro.

What is acrobat reader?


Adobe Acrobat is a family of computer programs developed by Adobe Systems, designed to view, create, manipulate and manage files in Adobe's

Plug-in from Adobe. It reads documents in PDF format on any platform.


A program from Adobe that lets you capture a document and then view it in its original format and appearance


Adobe has changed the names of the products in the Acrobat family regularly, also splitting-up, joining, or discontinuing products. Between version 3 and 5, Standard and Professional versions were one product simply called Adobe Acrobat.
As of October 2009[update], the current main members of the Adobe Acrobat family are:
64px-adobe_reader.svg.png magnify-clip.pngAdobe Reader 8/9 Icon
  • Adobe Reader 9 (Windows, Mac and Unix)
  • Adobe Acrobat 9 (Windows & Mac only; no Unix version)
    • Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard
    • Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro
    • Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro Extended (includes Adobe Presenter)

The latest version
Version 9.0 Adobe Acrobat 9.0 was released July 2008:[10][11]
  • PDF version 1.7 (and prior) supported. There are Adobe extensions to PDF 1.7 for Acrobat 9.
  • Product Family includes: Acrobat Standard 9 (Windows only), Acrobat Pro 9, Acrobat Pro Extended 9 (Windows only).
  • Pro Extended Version includes Adobe Presenter and the features of Acrobat 3D.
  • The ability to create Acroforms was restored to Acrobat Standard in this release (in versions 6 through 8, Acrobat Professional was required).
  • Enable real-time collaboration of PDFs with synchronized document views and chat.
  • Improved Web Capture for capturing entire web pages or just some parts into PDF.
  • Integration with acrobat.com to enable storage and sharing of PDF files.
  • Personalize a PDF Portfolio with customizable templates for navigation and branding.
  • Compare and highlight the differences between two versions of a PDF document.
  • Insert FLV (Flash) or H.264 video for direct playback in Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader.
  • Convert a variety of video formats to FLV for playback in PDF.
  • Create PDF maps by importing geospatial files that retain metadata and coordinates.
  • OCR PDFs (Paper Capture) using ClearScan. Adobe ClearScan technology creates custom Type1-CID fonts to match the visual appearance of a scanned document after optical character recognition (OCR). ClearScan does not replace the fonts with your system fonts or substitute them by Type1-MM (as in Acrobat 8 and earlier versions), but uses these newly created custom fonts. The custom fonts are embedded in the PDF file (this is obviously mandatory). If the OCR does not recognize a word with enough confidence, then the image (bitmap) of the word is shown in the PDF and the text is put above but hidden (same as what is made in "Searchable Image" mode).
  • Adobe Reader 9 drops support for Adobe Reader Extensions 5 and 6 which permit Adobe Reader client software to save changes to filled-in forms in PDFs. Adobe Reader Extensions 6.1 and newer are still supported. Legacy PDFs will still be viewable, however they will open with the warning "This document enables Reader capabilities that are no longer enabled in this Reader version."[12]
  • On March 10, 2009, Adobe Reader 9.1 was released which addresses a number of customer workflow issues and a critical security vulnerability while providing more stability.[13]
  • On May 12, 2009, Adobe Reader 9.1.1 was released which addresses two critical security vulnerabilities.[14]
  • On June 9, 2009, update version 9.1.2 was released which addresses a number of critical security vulnerabilities.[15]
  • On July 31, 2009, update version 9.1.3 was released which addresses a number of critical security vulnerabilities.[16]
  • On October 14, 2009, Adobe Acrobat 9.2 was released (added support for Windows 7 x86/x64 and fixed many security issues).[17]
  • On January 12, 2010, Adobe Reader 9.3 was released which addresses a number of critical security vulnerabilities.[18]
  • On February 16, 2010, Adobe Acrobat 9.3.1 was released which addresses two critical security vulnerabilities.[19]
  • On April 13, 2010, Adobe Acrobat 9.3.2 was released which addresses several critical security vulnerabilities.[20]

CANNOT INSTALL UPDATES FOR ADOBE READER 9


What error-message(s) do you get when you try?

If you're referring to the _free_ Acrobat Reader,
use Add/Remove Programs to uninstall it.
Then, download the latest version of the software from http://www.adobe.com -- most of the updates will already be integrated into the download.

If you're referring to the "full" software (that creates PDF files), find your original software, and license-key. Then, use Add/Remove Programs to uninstall it.
Restart your computer.
Reinstall from the media, using the license-key.
Then, do the "check for updates" within the software.

Can't save Adobe Acrobat 9 fillable forms


Fill in an interactive pdf form After you fill in the form fields, do any of the following:
  • Click the submit form button. Clicking this button sends the form data to a database across the web or over your company intranet.
  • In Acrobat, choose File > Save As, and rename the file to save the form with the data you entered.
  • In Reader, choose File > Save A Copy, and specify a location for the copy. Note: If the form author gave Reader users extended rights, the saved copy will include the entries you made in the form. Otherwise, the saved copy will be blank.
Enable Adobe Acrobat Reader users to save form data Ordinarily, Reader users can’t save filled-in copies of forms that they complete. However, you can extend rights to users of Reader 8 and later so they can do so. In Acrobat Pro and Pro Extended, these rights also include the ability to add comments, use the Typewriter tool, and digitally sign the PDF.
  1. Open a single PDF, or preview a component PDF in a PDF Portfolio.
  2. If you are editing the form, click Close Form Editing in the upper-right corner of the form.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • (Acrobat Pro and Pro Extended) Choose Advanced > Extend Features In Adobe Reader.
    • (Acrobat Standard only) Choose Advanced > Extend Forms Fill-In & Save In Adobe Reader.
    These extended privileges are limited to the current PDF. When you create a different PDF form, you must perform this task again to enable Reader users to save their own filled-in copies of that PDF.
If you don’t want recipients to overwrite the blank form template by saving form data, do not extend rights in the copy you send to them.

Limitations on saving filled-in forms locally

Acrobat Standard, Acrobat Pro, and Acrobat Pro Extended each allow Adobe Reader 8 or later users to fill in and save PDF forms locally. The use of the Reader Extensions capability for local saving of PDF forms (called extended documents) is limited in two ways:
Number of deployed extended documents An Acrobat Standard, Acrobat Pro, or Acrobat Pro Extended customer can send an extended document to an unlimited number of recipients for them to fill in. For example, an Acrobat customer can post an empty form template on a web page that allows users to fill in and save PDF forms locally. An unlimited number of people can access the template. However, the Acrobat customer can collect only 500 responses from the filled-in form. This limitation includes both hardcopy (paper form submission) and electronic representations of the filled-in form.
Number of recipients of the extended document An Acrobat Standard, Acrobat Pro, or Acrobat Pro Extended customer can send an extended document to no more than 500 unique recipients. For example, an Acrobat customer belongs to an organization with 500 people or less. The Acrobat customer can send an unlimited number of copies of the extended document to those 500 recipients and collect unlimited responses from the filled-in form.
Both limitations apply per entity/company, and multiple users in an entity cannot abuse this feature. Obtaining additional licenses to use Acrobat Standard, Acrobat Pro, and Acrobat Pro Extended does not increase the above restrictions. For example, five Acrobat Standard 9 users in a company cannot send out the same extended document to receive and extract data collectively more than 500 times.
Acrobat Standard, Acrobat Pro, and Acrobat Pro Extended include technology that can enable PDF documents with certain features by using a digital credential. This credential is located within the Software (“Key”). You agree not to access, attempt to access, control, disable, remove, distribute the Key for any purpose.



I hope it helps.

I AM TRYING TO FILL IN AN APPLICATION FORM IN A PDF FILE AND I DON'T GET ANY OPTIONS TO HIGHLIGHT TEXTS. IS IT BECAUSE THE COMPUTER I'M USING DOESN'T HAVE MICROSOFT WORD INSTALLED?


What program did you use to open the PDF? If you opened it with the default program, you probably used Adobe Reader which does not allow you to edit PDFs. You can import PDFs into several Office suites with add-ons. For example, Open Office 3 has a PDF add-on that lets the PDF be opened and modified in Draw and Impress. There are also online PDF editors and some low cost alternatives to Adobe Acrobat is the full program that makes PDFs. PDFill PDF Editor gets some good reviews
http://download.cnet.com/PDFill-PDF-Editor/3000-6675_4-10295757.html
as does www.pdfescape.com/ (an on-line option). Please note that most will put their logo on your document as a footer or somewhere unless you use a paid version.

I hope this helps.

(word does the PDF import more easily as I recall (possibly with an add-on) but there are alternatives.)

I am on windows XP. I have copied a PDF form on to my local disk. PDF document properties indicate that Filling of form fields is allowed yet I cannot fill the form fields. What do I have to do?


Try this first.

Look at your cursor. If it is a Hand, you have selected the hand tool. If not, go and select the Hand tool.

With the "Hand Tool" selected, go over one of the fields that you can type.

1. If the cursor remains as a "Hand", then the fields are NOT fillable. It can be printed, but NOT filled.

2. If the cursor changes from a "Hand" to a vertical line ("I"), -the one you see when you can type- then the problem is different. If this is the case post again and we can continue the search.

Need to scan a form to be filled out to computer


If you scan a form onto a computer, it won't behave as a form by default. This is because the computer is just storing a picture of the form, and doesn't see it as a form.

To make a scanned form into an electronic version, you will need some software that lets you define the regions of the form that can be filled in by the user. the full version of Adobe Acrobat lets you do this, as do the less expensive programs CutePDF Professional or PDfill.

Basically, you scan your document into a pdf format and use the aforementioned software to define which regions on the form should have typable text, checkboxes, etc., then you re-save it as a fillable pdf.

This works well, I do this with all my rental applications, etc.
There is a little bit of learning required to do this, but if you spend some time with the program and its helpfile you'll be creating forms with the best of them!

Editable forms with Adobe reader?


With adobe profesional you can make a PDF form, and send to the recipients. They can fill the form with Adobe reader and send it to you back, but only the data will be sent to you, not all with the pdf.
You can collect the data with your adobe profesional. Your programmer of medical paperless system can make the program to put that data in your database.
Here is the simple procedure:
1. Create form: Open adobe prof, menu advance --> Form --> create new form. You will go to Adobe design to create the form, there you can also retrieve your scanned document.
Don't forget to put "submit button" and your email address.
2. Then save as pdf form. It is ready to be send to your recipients.
3. The recipients will fill the data and send to you by pushing the "submit button".
4. You will receive the data in your mailbox, as an attachment of email. You can use adobe prof to collect it, example to put it in Microsoft Excel.
Go to menu advance --> form --> Create Spreadsheet from data files. A dialog box will come out, put in the files you received from your recipients. then go on, you will have the Excel data.
For put it in your database of your system, your programmer should create a program/ included in your system's program.

For Guest, to fill up is easy, just open the pdf form with Adobe REader, fill it and click the submit button.
