Topic: Acrobat 7 vs Designer 7 (Via Email), 1 Attachments

i created my first form (survey) in Adobe Designer 7.0.
There are some dynamic forms in the survey so my website visitors will need
to download Acrobat Reader 7.0 to fill in the survey.

Now I inserted an image of acrobat reader in my form on which I would like
to make a link to the acrobat download page.

I've got 3 questions:

1. How can I make a link on an image to another website. I just can't find
anything about it. I can't imagine that such a simple feature isn't possible
in Designer.

2. I think I can also make forms directly in Acrobat Professional 7.0. I
read that if it is designed in Acrobat 7 then visitors can use any version
of acrobat reader to fill in the form. But when I click "make new form" in
Acrobat 7 then the software automatically opens Designer. Can I avoid that
in any way; so that I can design forms in Acrobat Prof 7 instead of Designer
(without erasing Designer of my pc of course).

3. Is it correct that forms made with Designer can only be viewed and filled
in with acrobat reader 6 and 7 and not with older versions of acrobat
reader? What if I don't use dynamic items in my forms? Will they be able to
use any acrobat reader version to fill in Designer forms?

I need these answers urgently. So many thanks for your kind help.

Many regards
