Fillable Form

I've created a fillable form in Adobe, and I need to add a save button at the end that requires certain fields to be filled in before allowing the document to be saved. Initially, I had the button set as a submit button, which worked perfectly by not allowing submission until all required fields were completed. However, the save feature behaves differently. Despite having the fields set as required, it allows saving regardless of whether they're filled in or not.  How can I make these fields required?

You can't prevent saving entirely, as the user will always be able to use the built-in command that does it, but if you create your own Save button then you can validate the required fields first, and only if they are all filled in open the Save As dialog. Doing so would require a script, though. I've developed a (paid-for) tool that inserts the necessary code into your file to achieve it. You can find it here: https://www.try67.com/tool/acrobat-validate-required-fields-before-printing-or-saving
