I want to be able to display a fillable PDF form in LiveCode and then allow
the user to fill it in and then save the resulting document.

I have tried a couple of things.

*PDF Viewer*
- I have the LiveCode Business Licence so I have the PDF Viewer.   When I
open a fillable PDF form I can only view the PDF I can't fill in the
fillable fields.

*Browser instance*
- I have tried viewing the fillable PDF form in a Browser instance.   I can
fill out the fillable fields but my difficulty is in saving the resulting
form.

-I tried printing the browser instance with the *revBrowserPrint* command
and then save as a PDF in the dialog.
     - this does print the browser page but the page of the PDF that is in
view but not the whole document.

Is there a way to do this that I can save the filled form as a PDF?

Martin
