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?
