Topic: Cannot save edits to 5.0PDF using 4.05 Reader.
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 52194

I created a PDF file using Acrobat 5.0, then sent it to a test machine installed with the Acrobat 3.0 and 4.05 reader. Upone launching the PDF, the reader would default to the 3.0 version. I deleted the association thru Explorer, then re-associated it to launch the 4.05 reader. This works fine now. However, upon reading the PDF file, it lets me edit, but not save the edits. Is the Reader really just a Reader or does the client need something else to fillout the form content of a a 5.0 or any PDF file, then save their changes (this is NOT referring to the changing the form design)? Did I do something wrong when I built the PDF file under 5.0?

Thanks.
