I've programmed the submit button with the correct email Address as a new email message gets created with the correct recipient address. The completed PDF form does not get added as an attachment to this email.
Several updates ago, this was a simple and flawless proccess. Perhaps someone can PLEASE help.
You said that you programmed a submit button in your PDF? If you are using a script please share the script, and if you are not using a script please describe which method are you employing that used to work before?
So what I noticed in the screenshots is that something might've reverted to the default preferences.
The way you have it configured now has the file attachment sent as an FDF.
See the sections that are marked in that dialog window:
Tick the radio button "PDF The complete document" so it sends the entire document as a PDF attachment.
Could be, I just notice in the Release Notes that Adobe did push an optional update to fix functionality issues on Microsoft Windows only.
macOS still using the last update from January 2023.
But just to be certain,can you confirm if this is happening with every PDF?
Try creating a new blank form for testing purposes.
The behavior you are describing didn't happen on my Windows 10 (64-bit), using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC (32-bit) with the same Janauary version update that you have.
Now, since you've also emphasized about your OS, do think the problem may disappear if force an upgrade to the OS?
How about using Time Machine to revert back to an instance of your macOS in which Acrobat was known to be working OK?
Sometimes updates (both to the OS or Acrobat) can cause programs to revert back to their default settings.
I'm very much afraid to update my macOS.
Aside from this PDF thing, it is quite stable, all of my Adobe Products are working.
This was a very plain PDF that has failed.
I will try my windows machine later this weekend.
My trust and confidence in the macOS has been waning steadily over the years
I've repeated this text on the windows machine, I get the same results, failure.
I've entered an email address into the submit button.
The completed PDF form does not get added as an attachment to this new email.
Can you share the file with us?
Perhaps, my dear oracle, you can create a functional PDF, send it to me, I will edit it with my email address.
Please & THANKS
I download it, filled it in, clicked submit and the results were the same as with my PDFs.
The submit button brought up Chrome, opened up Gmail within a new tab, created a new message without a recipient address or an atachment.
I've attached my test file to see if your system is able to correctly opperate my submit button.
The reason i have it on the bottom of page 2 was to see if both pages would be attached or just the 2nd page with the fields.
Maybe the issue is with Chrome. Try using a local email application, instead.
did my form work for you?
I recieved your link, Re: [Acrobat] How to Include completed PDF form as an Attachment in the Email
Yes, it worked fine using Reader DC.
(and Gmail via Firefox, FYI)
