Topic: Reader 6 form buttons do not work with security

Problem with Reader 6.0 and PDF files created with Acrobat 5.05

I have PDF files on CD that were created with Acrobat 5.05 which have form buttons and simple javascript actions (next page, back, home etc).

On the CD which has no security the form buttons work fine in Reader 6.0. However on the CD with security the actions do not work in Adobe Reader 6.0. Both work fine in Reader 5.05 and 5.1.

What is noticed is that when passing over the form the hand does not change to a pointed finger and all it does is advance one page irrespectively.

This is on Windows NT (SP6).
The security CD has 40 bit password and when I open the document properties in Reader 6.0 only printing is allowed, all other document restrictions are not allowed. The CD that works has no security.

Interested if anyone else has had this problem, and may explain what I have done wrong, the need to set a new preference or whether there has been a change in the Reader which interprets the actions and security in a different way. Many thanks
