Default Fillable pdf with personalization

I have a fillable pdf that has personalization on it. Does the fillable part stay when added to MarcomCentral?

Currently only using the personalized fillable pdf locally and manually creating the output file but want to add it to our web-to-print system.

FusionPro 12.2.2 on a Mac.

If you check the "Preserve Annotations" box on the Graphics tab of the Composition Settings, the form fields will be present in PDF output.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

One step further... if a fillable PDF has properties set to calculate the fields entered, should the "Preserve Annotations" save those settings too? See the attached PDF "2156-C Output8.pdf" after composition. The fillable fields are on page 2 and they are still fillable. However, the fields do not calculate like they are in the PDF I started with, "2156-C Original.pdf". The tab order also changed after composing. Thanks!!
