What is Adobe Reader Extensions?
The Free Adobe Reader is exactly what is says, a 'reader'. If you open an eForm in the Adobe Reader it will tell you that 'You cannot save any data your enter into this form...." and if you try to save it you only save the original, blank, copy of the form.

Adobe LiveCycle® Reader Extensions software embeds a license key in a PDF file or eForm which activates functionality within Adobe Reader (version 7 and above) enabling end users to fill in, annotate, sign, save,and submit PDF documents and forms - online or offline.

Once the Reader Extension rights are added PDF eForm users can:

  • Save a copy of a fully or partially completed eForm to their local hard drive.
  • Interact with eForms offline, while retaining their data and comments for submittal when they reconnect.
  • Add attachments to forms; scanned documents, office files, photos, video clips, sound files, etc.
  • Sign, certify, and authenticate documents before returning them.
  • Work with intuitive tools for review and commenting.
  • Connect to web service and database to merge or submit data.
  • Submit whole documents and forms online or via e-mail


An alternative to Reader Extensions is xDox xForm Server which enables PDF forms to be submitted, saved and their data extracted - without needing Reader Extensions.
