Although we really tried hard, there are always questions left open. But perhaps somebody else had already put the same question?

  • Hi, I am in the process of evaluating PDF Form Saver, I can easily merge my XML into a PDF form, looking very good ! However I am struggling to flatten the resulting PDF ? i.e. opening it in a PDF viewer shows the form fields and allows editing. Do you have an example of how to do this ? I am using VBScript initialy, might change to VB once I have it working. Last hurdle before we go ahead and purchase.


    To flatten a PDF form please use function seal_all_fields. Please contact in case you need some sample code or an evaluation key.

  • Can a pdf saved with form saver ocx be edited with form saver if necessary?
  • I can't tell if your software does what I am looking for. I am looking for a way to save PDF files through an intranet to a central server. Clients would then be able to take a local copy of the PDF file with them, make changes, and save the PDF file to our central server.
If not, please do not hesitate to send us your question.
We would be glad to answer it.
