I'm new to this forum and new to javaScript, so sorry if this question is simple.

I would like to save a form before it has been signed, as I believe once its been signed you can not edit the form.

The question is, how to save the form using two fields from within the form, as the pdf's name.

i.e. IAG.pdf to ThomasSmith.pdf (First Name and Surname)

Hi.

This requires an application-level JavaScript, this could not be done from a PDF without an user prompt.

Thank you for your reply, I take it you mean a user prompt, is that from say then user pressing a button to do this.

Not only do you need to provide a button, you also must install or have the user install a custom JavaScript file in a specific location on their system.
