Two submit buttons
“When you distribute a form, Acrobat automatically checks the form. If it doesn’t find a submit button, it adds a Submit Form button to the document message bar. Users can click the Submit Form button to send completed forms back to you. If you don’t plan to use the Submit Form button created by Acrobat, you can add a custom submit button to your form.”
I added a Submit button to a form and when I distributed it I got two submit buttons: the one I added plus the standard one generated by Acrobat inside the purple banner, both buttons work as expected.
I am using Acrobat DC Pro.

I was able to disable the purple banner by doing the following:
- In Adobe Acrobat open the File menu
- Select Properties
- Select the Inital View tab
- In the User Interface Options section, check "Hide window controls"
- Save and close the file
I then re-opened the form, re-distributed it and this time, like magic, Acrobat recognized my custom Submit button and went through the usual dialogs for creating a distribution workflow. The distributed form does not display the purple banner and my Submit button and the generated distribution workflow worked flawlessly.
