Hi everyone,

I've several PDF forms where the "Send" button activate this JavaScript seen below

 

for (var i=0; i<this.numFields; i++) {

var f = this.getField(this.getNthFieldName(i));

if (f.type != "button") { f.readonly = true; } else { f.display = display.hidden; } }

 

 

However, the coleagues who receive those forms completely filled, need to add comments or highlight fields during there analysis.

Is there a way to make the fields read only but after allowing to add comments.

 

Thanks in advance

It should allow it. There's no relation between fields and comments in this sense. The script does not prevent adding comments.

Thanks for your answer, I'll share one of the files I've spoke. Can you see what is wrong with?

Nothing is wrong, I can comment this file with any comment tool.

 

But it's a "Reader Extended" document, may be the cause of some issues?

That's because it has been manipulated since the Extended Rights were applied to it. I'm getting this message when opening it in Reader:
