Hello i'm developing a pdf where the save button will choose for the user the folder and file name. I Know to do this from Try67 tutorials that I will need to put a folder level script. My question is if everything is done in the common drive environment, H drive (all users have access) but programs are not install there but in the local C drive. Where would i put the folder level script to make sure everyone will be able to have the button working when using adobe reader.

Hello, does that mean each computer that will be using the PDF will need to have the folder level script put into their program files?

Hello Bernd,

Thank you for that, I searched up certifying a document however it seems like its saying after its certified then no other changes would be able to be completed. Based on that, how would one test their saving function given that if it doesn't work until its certified..?

Thank you,

Charles

You probably DO need to install it on each computer. For security reasons, this function is heavily locked down (imagine if a file you downloaded could start saving itself without warning). For this reason it's also important for you to change the function name to one you made up.
