Fill PDF form and keep Reader Extensions


I want to fill a PDF form with values. The saved document should be editable and storeable in Adobe Reader.

With the attached PDFs “Einheitsantrag.pdf” and "“Einheitsantrag_Copy.pdf” I got no success.
I tryed this:

Aspose.Pdf.Facades.Form pdfForm = new Aspose.Pdf.Facades.Form(“Einheitsantrag.pdf”);
//Aspose.Pdf.Facades.Form pdfForm = new Aspose.Pdf.Facades.Form(“Einheitsantrag_Copy.pdf”);
pdfForm.FillField(“Vorname”, “Max”);
pdfForm.FillField(“Name, Titel”, “Mustermann, Dr.”);

I use Aspose.Pdf for .NET 7.3.0.

When I open the filled PDF in Adobe Reader there is a message: “…extensions are not more available…” and the document is not editable.
Alternatively I tryed to fill a copy of the PDF file, which I copied in Adobe Acrobat. When I open the filled PDF in Adobe Reader there is a message: “Form informations cannot be saved…”. In this case the form is editable but not storeable with informations.

Is it possible to get it editable and storable with informations?

Best Regards
