Adding and Removing Pages from a PDF form that has Extended Features

Apose Team

Is it possible to add and/or remove pages from a PDF form that has extended features using Apose.Form or Apose.PDF.Kit? The reason I ask is because we have a PDF form that has extended features to allow users to fill in the form and save it on their desktops, before sending the form back. However, before we send the users the form, we have a process that will programatically add in a Read only pdf page from another file.

When I do this manually as a test, using Acrobat, I cannot add pages to an extended form unless I remove the extended features. However, if I remove the extended features by saving another copy, and then add the page; users will not be able to save the un-extended form on their desktop. The alternative is to enable the Extended Fill-in feature after the page has been added to the form. Therefore, my 2nd question is it possible to enable "Extended Fill-in &

Hi Steve,

Aspose.Pdf.Kit for .NET allows you to insert PDF pages into an existing PDF file and remove the pages as well. Please download the latest version and try the above methods at your end. If you still find any of the above issues then please share the input PDF file(s) along with your code snippet and any further details regarding the issue and requirement.

We’re looking forward to help you out.

Thank you for your response. I have attached the sample PDF files: example2.PDF, ReadOnlyFile.pdf, and output.pdf.

The code is provided below. Basically, example.pdf is a PDF form that has "Extend Forms Fill-in & Save in Adobe Reader" enabled to allow users to fill in the form using Acrobat Reader and save the form on to their desktop. I use Aspose.PDF.Kit to append a read only page to example.pdf, and output the file to output.pdf. When a user opens output.pdf with Acrobat Reader, they get a message saying the file has been changed and use of extended features is no longer available. I have attached a screen shot of the message as well.

//Initialize the string variables storing paths of PDF files

string inFile1 = @"D:\Projects\Moc Prototype\AsposeConsole\example2.pdf";
string inFile2 = @"D:\Projects\Moc Prototype\AsposeConsole\ReadOnlyFile.pdf";
string outFile = @"D:\Projects\Moc Prototype\AsposeConsole\outPut.pdf";

//Creating stream objects holding the PDF files in Open Mode

FileStream inStream1 = new FileStream(inFile1, FileMode.Open);
FileStream inStream2 = new FileStream(inFile2, FileMode.Open);

//Creating output stream object that will store the resulting PDF file after appending
FileStream outputStream = new FileStream(outFile, FileMode.Create);

//Instantiating PdfFileEditor object
PdfFileEditor editor = new PdfFileEditor();

//Calling Append method and providing five arguments
editor.Append(inStream1, inStream2, 1, 3, outputStream);

//Closing output stream
outputStream.Close();
