Q:  I would like to produce PDF documents where my end users will have the capability to make edits to form fields and then be able to SAVE these edited documents.  Does the XF Rendering Server product line provide this capability?

A:  The answer is yes, using the Adobe Reader Extensions add-on. You can read more about this add-on feature at the following link: http://www.ecrion.com/products/xfrenderingserver/addons.aspx#are

However, it must be noted that this does come at an additional cost.  The answer to why is below. 

Users of Adobe Acrobat Pro can choose to create documents that will allow anyone to make modifications to the form fields and save the PDF.  This works because those documents are signed with a special key that allows Adobe Reader Extensions to be enabled, ultimately allowing the user to make modifications and save accordingly.  

The XF Rendering Server can work with using this key and integrating it into the document to produce PDF's that your end users can modify and save.  Yet, this does require an acquisition of the extensions key from Adobe directly (in compliance with their EULA and pricing models).  If you are interested in this add-on functionality, simply email sales@ecrion.com, and we will provide you with more pricing information.
