I have this pdf file completely generated from

Mac 10.9.3 + OpenOffice 4.0.1
OpenOffice Draw -> File -> Export as PDF... -> File1.pdf

The original File1.odg file was created with FormFields and they are working as expected in the File1.pdf.

How can I

  • let my users see the File1.pdf as is,
  • let users use it to enter data in the FormFields,

But send to the printer (when they print) only populated information in the FormFields, to work like a stencil ?
