PDF Reader Extensions Overview

Enable Reader Extensions on PDF Forms

With Acrobat 8 Professional, users can now enable the save feature in a PDF form for distribution to people with Adobe Reader 7.0 and above. According to the Adobe user license agreeement in Adobe Acrobat, this feature applies to ad-hoc forms distribution and data collection.

With Adobe Reader Extensions, you can activate usage rights in any PDF form so that users of the free Adobe Reader can now:

  • Allow files to be saved locally (with form data)
  • Add digital signatures
  • E-mail filled forms
  • Export and import form data
  • Take advantage of file attachments
  • Add comments and field data
  • Submit entire forms to a server


The license agreement for Acrobat 8 Professional limits this functionality to 500 unique users, or 500 submissions.
