Adobe PDF on a MAC

I set up a complex PDF form with Adobe Acrobat that it should be writeable and you can submit the form directly to our server.

Now I am getting complaints that the form can not be used on  a MAC.

What can I do with that form? and is there another program that would make it more compatible to everyone?

That's probably not true.  Adobe Reader is almost exactly the same on all platforms.  Ask them how they are trying to use it.  I'd bet they are opening it in Firefox's viewer which does not support fill-in forms at this time or in Safari with Preview instead of Adobe Reader.  To get it to work right, they may have to download it and open it in Adobe Reader, Not in Preview.  This is getting to be a common problem since Chrome and then Firefox starting including their own viewers in their browsers.  That's because their viewers do not do everything that Adobe Reader does.
