Topic: Save As' disabled

We have a very strange behavior occurring here on a Win2K LAN. A form that was created in Acrobat 5, then modified in Acrobat 6, is not allowing users of Acrobat 5 to use the File>Save As function. The form can be saved from an intranet page to the user's machine, but after that there is no File>Save As option. I went to a machine myself and opened the file directly into Acrobat 5 from its resident location, and had neither File>Save nor File>Save As options. If I entered data into the form, File>Save was enabled, but not File>Save As. There is no security set on the form, and all users are using native Acrobat 5, not the Reader.

Other documents created in Acrobat 6 can be opened in Acrobat 5 and File>Save As is enabled; furthermore, there seems to be one installation of Acrobat 5 that can use File>Save As on the suspect form; however, other installations based on the same profile cannot use File>Save As.

I've looked in numerous places for an explanation of this behavior and have found nothing. Anyone else had this experience, and does anyone know how to fix it?

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
