I'm new to pdf. I've got version 5. I've produced a form which calculates info for certain tax forms. There are loads of calculated fields which all works fine. Trouble is that it takes ages to fill in the form because auto calculate forces calculation of the whole form every time a field is filled in. I've seen what I want in another form but I can't get to the underlying javascripts because of security.

What I need are 3 buttons:- one to turn autocalculate off; one to turn autocalculate on; and one to force calculation of the whole document. For the last button I tried a javascript which said simply calculateNow(), having turned off autocalculate from edit/preferences but it doesn't work.

I'd be very grateful if someone could give me the javascripts I need
