I'd like to add a button to Adobe Acrobat toolbar that a user can click to add a background. The background is actually a formatted pdf file. I can use an Action Script for this but I want the background to appear without the user having to browse for it as it will be used many times. Any ideas? Thanks!

Hi,

You will need to use Acrobat SDK and javascript.

Here is the method we are using:
