SavePDF is a new (Clipboard) method to save filled-in PDF forms locally in Adobe Acrobat Reader. All 16,831 U.S. FedForms (issued by about 200 government agencies) are converted to savable by this method. To export, all the data are copied into the clipboard. To import, the contents of the clipboard is pasted into the form. It takes a few seconds to export or import the data (even for forms containing 1000's of fields). This method has a long list of advantages against other methods (including not only Server-Based, Persistent Global Variables, and Reader Extensions, but also the Save, Save As, Export, and Import features of the Acrobat full program). Some of the features are: (1) the data can be saved locally (no Internet connection, no risk of online or email data transfer); (2) in general, the data can be saved not only by form, but also by page or by any range of pages -- this is not just helpful but very important (especially if there is a common part in multiple savings from the same form and/or from multiple forms); (3) the saved data contains not only field values but also other properties (including text size, text font, and multi-line) -- this is very important (especially for doNotScroll fields); (4) all the data summary (date, time, form number, etc.) is included and visible in the exported code; (5) the saved data is stored in a very small string of code; (6) all data extracted by multiple savings from the same form (and/or from multiple forms) can be stored in the same file. The software installation and the technical support are free and available by a click of button. If your forms are already fillable, then you need installation of the (free) savePDF software to convert your forms into savable. If your forms are not fillable, then you need installation of both the (free) Fill-inDocs and the savePDF software to convert your forms into fillable and savable.
