What happens if you save a copy with a differenr filename? 

 

Would you be able to Fill & Sign in that saved copy?

 

As faras I'm concerned this type of PDF doesn't allow any type of editing or modification. You may need to check if you're signed in with your Adobe ID to unlocm the premium editing features again.

Hi Chantal

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry for the trouble and the delay in response. As described you are unable to fill in the PDF form.

 

I have checked the PDF form that you have shared and tried to fill in the form using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and its working fine.

 

Would you mind sharing the workflow/steps you are doing to fill in the PDF form? Are you trying to fill in the form online? If yes, please download the form to your computer locally and then try to fill in the form and check.

 

Also make sure you have the latest version  21.01.20145 of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC installed. Go to Help > Check for updates and reboot the computer once and check.

You may also download the patch manually from the link https://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/ReleaseNotesDC/index.html

 

Let us know if you experience any trouble and need more help.

 

Regards

Amal

It works for me. Did you sign it? If so, that often is the final step and locks the file forever against changes.
