I have a PDF Form saved from Acrobat DC ("pro") on MAC, then moved to a PC that has Adobe Reader DC. When i open and modify the form in Reader DC and click the Save button, the Save As dialog comes up, forcing the choice of a location and replacing the original -- which runs a great risk of picking the wrong location and causing duplication of files.
I have tried both the default form and saving it from Acrobat DC as Reader-Enabled, with the same results either way. Why won't the Save button just save the document instead of bringing up the Save As dialog?
Note that if I CLOSE the updated form, it will ask me if I want to save the file and it will simply save it (no Save As dialog). But the Save button does not behave that way, nor does File > Save command (it also acts like Save As).

More Google searching finally turned up the answer. In Reader DC I had to go to Edit > Preferences > Security (Enhanced) and turn OFF "Enable Protected Mode at startup".
Getting that save as dialog box each time was inconvenient. Your answer helped me!
I can´t thank you thank you enough. This absolutely works and is crucial. Thank you!
Thank you! This was driving me crazy.
Thank you. This one works.
It appears am not so futunate. Why doesn't this solution work for me. I am having the same issue, even though "Enable Protected Mode at startup (Preview) was not enabled.
