Hallo,

ich habe folgendes Problem: Ich habe mit Adobe Acrobat Pro DC auf meinem MacBook Pro (MacOS Mojave) ein Formular erstellt. Dieses Dokument soll nun von meinen Kollegen bei Bedarf ausgefüllt (im Reader), abgespeichert und dann per Mail als normales PDF weitergeschickt werden. Das ausgefüllte Formular soll aber nach der Speicherung nicht mehr veränderbar sein, sondern nur noch als normales PDF mit den eingesetzten Daten fungieren. Ist das möglich auch ohne die Verwendung eines Signaturfeldes in dem Formular? Wenn ja, wie stelle ich das an?

Danke!

Without signing the file the only thing you can do in Reader is to set all the fields as read-only. This is not a secure solution at all, though, as they can be easily changed back to being editable.

Wenn das der einzige Weg sein sollte, das ausgefüllte Formular vor Veränderung indirekt zu schützen, ist das Programm nicht wirklich ausgereift und benötigt dringend ein Update... Schade.

Why is that? If you want to be able to properly flatten the form you need to get Acrobat. The free Reader is only for viewing the file. For advanced editing you need to pay.

Danke für Deine Antwort. Ich verfüge über eine teure Kaufversion und wenn ich ein Feld für eine Unterschrift einfüge, können meine Kollegen auch mit dem Reader das Formular ausfüllen und danach geschützt speichern. Ich hatte gehofft, dass dies auch ohne das Unterschriftenfeld mit einer bestimmten Einstellung möglich sei. Nicht jedes Formular benötigt zwangsläufig immer eine Unterschrift. Da das ja nicht möglich zu sein scheint, finde ich, dass Adobe hier dringend nachbessern müsste.  Trotzdem danke für Eure Mühen!

He DID use Acrobat. I think you did not understand his problem properly.

Users with Acrobat Reader can't protect the form!

Mit einem Workaround geht das schon. Dein Kollege füllt das Dokument im Reader aus und speichert es dann nicht normal ab sondern geht auf "Drucken" und wählt dann den Windows eigenen (oder irgend einen anderen) PDF Drucker aus. Die Dateigröße nimmt dann zwar minimal zu, doch was dann gespeichert wird ist das Formular mit allen Einträgen deines Kollegen ohne das diese noch verändert werden können.

English:

  • Open the form in Adobe Acrobat Reader
  • fill in the informations
  • Klick "Print" and choose a PDF-Printer
  • Safe the PDF

The file than is a little bit bigger but a "normal" PDF whithout the option to change the informations in the form.

Hi Bernd, you are right. Adobe Acrobat can edit most text based PDFs. But I guess my solution works in Jan's case. Like I understand he talks about "a normal PDF" whithout form fields.

Ich stand gerade vor dem selben Problem und habe eine Lösung gefunden.

Datei -> Speichern Unter -> Format "Adobe PDF, optimiert"

Es erscheint ein Button "Einstellungen" mit der Möglichkeit "Objekte löschen" zu wählen.

Dort habe ich einfach mal angehakt: "Formularfelder reduzieren", das scheint zu klappen.

Habe eine Lösung: Einen Button über Formular vorbereiten einfügen und dann bei Button > Aktion eine automatisch flatten page über JS laufen lassen und direkt ins speichern unter Protokoll weiterleiten. Die Screenshots sollten es klarer machen als meine Worte 🙂

No, Acrobat Reader can't flatten pages.

Try it out.

Hello, I have the same question. I create a document / an inspection record in InDesign with interactive text fields and export it as an interactive PDF. This document should be filled with products, serial number, purchase date, condition etc. After filling the document the text fields should be locked by just savinbg the PDF without any indeep saving configurations by the person that fills it. And I know there must be a way. I have a COVID protocol sheet from a client and this has the funtion. Enter the data (Name, Date, Location) save the document and afterwards there is no more change possible. Unfortunately this document is password encrypted so I have no way found to get the details / configuration of this document.

I use a Creative Cloud incl. Acrobat Pro.

Maybe someone has an idea.

 

Thx,

Lucas

Hi, 
ich stand heute ebenfalls vor genau dem gleichen Thema und Euer Post hat mir weitergeholfen - thx dafür. 
Die Bezeichnung hat sich zwischenzeitlich beim Speichern geändert. Nach dem Speichern mit der Option "Bearbeitung beschränken" kannst Du ein Passwort zum Schutz des Formulars vergeben und jederzeit über > Eigenschaften / Sicherheit die Sperrung aufheben.

Die Frage des Topic-Ersteller ist nicht gelöst... 

- In der Reader Version lässt sich ein PDF mit Formular-Feld nicht speichern, dass das Formular nicht bearbeitet werden kann.

- Das PDF "via Drucken" ist nur via Drittanbieter möglich (migrosoft, freepfd etc...) 

 

Wäre tooll wenn es eine Lösung gäbe - aber m.E nicht...

Ich mache das mit dem JS-Debugger. Vor dem Speichern öffne ich den Debugger mit Strg+J und gebe in die Konsole "this.flattenPages()" ein und bestätige mit ENTER am Zahlenfeld!

Danach ist das Dokument als reiner Text fromatiert. So kann es auch gespeichert werden.

Viel Erfolg!
