Is there a way with javascript to Save a PDF Form with the Reader Extended PDF option activated?

I was expecting to be able to do so with an Action, but this is not available.

Thanks!

sort of, Here's the two menu item names for saving with rights (i.e. the free ones)

Basic annotation Rights - "Annots:ReaderEnable"

form filling - "DIGSIG:UBDoc"

These still require user interaction.

I’m right to also think it’s impossible with an Action? Or a button with execute a menu command?

Yes, purposefully so. Adobe doesn't want people to be able to do it, unless they purchase a special server-application from them.

However, these right are not really necessary anymore, if the users have a relatively recent version of Reader.

Yes you can, using AppleScript (on MacOS) or using Sikuli (not very fast but it does the job) : Sikuli Script - Home

As already said, it's no longer required for Acrobat Reader since version XI.
