Reader can not save. Period.

The Save button you see comes from the PDFViewer plug-in. Its
function is to download the document from the web server to your
local drive. This is the same function as you have by right-click on
a link and saving the path to disk. What you will get locally is the
PDF the way it come from the server.

If you drive Reader with the PDFViewer plug-in, and you have a
fillable form, you still can't get the filled in data to the local
disk (unless you submit this data to the web server which then does
modify the PDF document on its side and sends you a filled out form

This completely downloading the PDF document is not the same a s
local saving. And, again, it is not Reader providing the download
function, but the PDFViewer plug-in.

Hope, this can help.
