Reader Extensions

Standard PDF forms (called Acroforms) do not need to be “reader enabled”  in order to be filled and saved in Adobe Reader XI. Livecyle Dynamic XFA forms continue to require the form to be Reader Extended in order save the form and data in Adobe Reader. Adobe is retiring dynamic XFA forms so it is recommended to use standard Acroforms for portability.
