I need to create a fillable form where basic info is at the top f and a "PRINT" "EMAIL" and "SAVE" button are at the bottom. I'm good to go with everything but the "SAVE" button. I do not see a way to have an interactive "Save" command through the usual button and forms channel.

I understand that I can create a "Save" button in Acrobat, but I need to create 300+ PDF forms and I'm pretty unwilling to do this all manually. What am I missing in InDesign that I can't create and export this button action? If I absolutely must do it in Acrobat, I will but is there a way to automate this?

Unfortunately, there is no way to create a Save button using the Forms & Buttons panel in InDesign. Perhaps it could be applied with a script in Acrobat, but it may be faster just to make one in Acrobat and then copy and paste it (in Acrobat, from one PDF to another) over and over.

Thank you, David! I did end up copy/pasting in one file, then splitting the pages afterwards. Took me about 1/2 a day.
