`This document enabled extended features in Adobe Reader. The document has been changed since it was created and use of extended features is no longer available. Please contact the author for the original version of this document.`

How do i avoid this error. I want to fill the form using C# and save the PDF and user can only view the data but cannot edit the data I am also removing some border around some fields.

I am willing to create a new PDF if i can get iterate through the meta data of the original pdf and generate a new pdf so this way if user opens it they will not get the warning as above.

Hi,
Can you provide a VS2010 sln as I do not have VS2013. Also am attaching a test document that I found that caused the issue. Even the W4 pdf that is on a sample on your site caused same issue.

Took your example in my project and populated my PDF and saved it. When i view the pdf, the form fields are empty and once i click on it the value is seen. Also, the fields are editable which i dont want to once my application fills the data and saves the pdf

Hi Jb,

I have created a sample and populated few fields with the input files provided by you, I can’t able to reproduce the issue, the field values are preserved, and it is non-editable, can you please check with the sample in the below link and let me know if there is any issues.

Hi Karthik,
Thanks for the reply and your sample. Looking at it.

I have issue when I select a radio option and a combo box field and save it. That does not work at all. either the radio option is saved else the combobox selection is saved. 

i posted here also:

Hi Karthik,
This is what the issue is

In your code if you set value for a radio option and a combobox field value and save it, it will not save - if it saves, can you attach your pdf file to this thread or to the sln?

In the email address field if you enter "qazwsxe.rfvtgbyhn@poiuyt.com" and when you flatten the form the saved acro form contains only partial data. 

Would be much obliged if you can provide solution that fills all the form elements and i can save it and open the pdf without getting `extended features disabled error`

i have attached my sample file after running through your code and am using reader xI

Hi karthik,
Any update?

This is what I am trying to achieve
1. fill in the form - text, radio and combo field
2. save it so that user can no longer edit it

Issues:
1. cannot flatten form as if i open the form i have to click on the fields to see value and form is editable
2. email address such as johnsmithdoe.janesmothdoes@qazwsxedcrfv.com does not show as full value
3. if i flatten and save then opening pdf i get `extended features have been disabled. contact author of document`. this is with adobe reader xi. Reading forums online with itext, they have a property that allows to disbale usage rights, not sure if syncfusion has same.

Would appreciate any help guidance, as if it works, i can get the client to buy the pdf lib for their project 

If you need to modify the pdf template to remove any constraints, please do so
