Cannot save data typed into a form


When I open a created PDF in PDF Reader, at the top of the form it says “You cannot save data typed into this form”.

Have tried setting the privileges to “AllowAll” but it then says “SECURED” in the window title.

Can anybody help?

Hello Jonathan,

Thanks for considering Aspose.

PdfFileSecurity class in Aspose.Pdf.Kit offers the capability to set the access privileges over the Pdf file, which also includes enabling the option to Fill form fields in the file, but the message you are seeing is not related to setting file privileges, but its the new feature introduced by Adobe named as Reader extend, which allows to fill the form field using Adobe Reader, but I am afraid it is currently not supported by our product, because Adobe has not published the details information in this context.
