    transfer pdf fillable forms from Mac to PC

    It appars that if a pdf fillable form is filled in on a Mac and emailed to a PC, the filled in portions appear blank but if you click on any filled in portion that portion becomes visible - until another section is clicked on when that one only is visible. None of the 'fillings in' print.

    Are there any work arounds to this problem?

    What program are you using to open the file on the PC?

    Have you tried others?

    Petermat,

    I remember this problem well, but was going from PC to PC. What Adobe failed to mention (at least in the version I used) was that in order to e-mail the form, you must save it first, then e-mail it.
    Thanks John
