Smart pdf's are nice, but most people wouldn't know what to do when their browser would not load them. A conversion to regular pdf, ditching the forms and functions is desirable.
Can that be done ? How ?
You can install a 'PDF printer'. That is a virtual printer. Printing to it asks you for a filename and the result ends up in a PDF file.
Printing to such a PDF printer strips all field functionality.
The one I personally use is pdfcreator, but there are many similar programs.
