I am saving a fill form.  The spaces that I completed in the form, will not save closed.  My saved document would allow me to go in and change them.  How do I get those fillable areas to close?  I've never had this before and I used this program for years

Make sure that the security settings allow form filling. (See File > Properties > Security.)
Make sure that the PDF includes interactive, or fillable, form fields. Sometimes form creators forget to convert their PDFs to interactive forms, or they intentionally design a form you can only fill in by hand. If you can't type in the form fields, then the fields are probably not interactive.
Check for additional capabilities and restrictions in the purple document message bar, just below the tool area.

When you sign the form you can lock the form fields.
