Once you have created a form in the IBM
® Forms Designer, it can be exported as a locked form.
As a form developer, you may create forms that are distributed to other Designer users. To ensure your form is not opened and modified, the export function allows you to lock the file.
To export a form:
Parent topic: Developing forms
- Go to File -> Export.
The Export window appears.
- Click the plus sign to expand Other. Select Export IBM Form as Locked Form and click Next.
- The Source field is pre-populated with the location and name of your form. Enter the Destination for the exported form by typing in the location, or using the Browse button. Click Finish to export the form.
Note: You can save the exported file to the same folder where the original file is stored.
