Hi Maciej,

I just checked with Acrobat Pro version 8 and I find the following option:
Advanced Options > Activate the Rights for Acrobat Reader (I am translating
from French, so it might no be exactly that wording in the English version).
What I understand from the dialog that pops up is that this will allow, from
within Acrobat Reader, to save a copy of the form once it is filled

I haven't gone through all the doc about Adobe LiveCycle but I understand
that this solution is to allow a web-based PDF creation process and is aimed
at fairly large group of people. It is not a desktop solution. When you look
at the technical specs, you see that it implies servers and databases.

There is a cost for Acrobat Pro 8 and I wonder whether this option could be
offered as well into Scribus? Since we can already do most of what Acrobat
Pro can do, I wonder whether we have also the right to implement such
Advanced Options in an OSS.
