Free PDF Reader software is not able to save form data to disk. That means that as soon you close the reader all data entered into the PDF form is lost. The Aloaha PDF Saver allows you to save the PDF INCLUSIVE the form data to disk.
1. Check if HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Aloaha\PDFSaver\edit has value 1 2. Make sure to be in Aloaha Mode in the PDF Saver 3. Draw a selection box while keeping the left mouse button pressed 4. Right Click into the box and choose Edit -> Add Text Field
How can I load/save documents to/from a sharepoint library?
Aloaha supports loading and saving directly to/from sharepoint. To load a document from sharepoint just type in the URL into the file open dialog.
To be able to save a loaded file directly back to the sharepoint library it is required to start the PDF Saver with a command line argument. The reason is that if a URL is typed in into a windows open/save dialog windows will remap that URL to a local file in the temp directory.
For example if you load a file with the commandline: PDFSaver http://yourserver.tld/pdfdocument.pdf you are able to save it back to the library with just pressing the save button.
It is also possible just to choose "upload to" in the menu.
You need to make sure that HKLM\Software\Aloaha\pdfsaver\edit is set to 1. Then you can just draw a selection box with the left mouse button pressed. If you now right click into that selection box you can choose to add a text box.
