Adobe PDF Fill In Form REQUIRES The Free Adobe Reader To Be Installed / Open to Have the Fill In Fields work properly and Submit Button work properly...

I will have a pre web page that has writing that INFORMS the user to ONLY USE Adobe Reader (with download link also) when using the Fill In Form and ALSO I can put writing ON the actual Fill in PDF that will tell them to ONLY use Adobe Reader and ALSO have JS script on the web page that OPENS the Fill In Form pops up saying ONLY use Adobe Reader

Can I HAVE a Adobe PDF Reader Download Link on the Fill In PDF to allow user to download the Reader from the Fill In form directly ?

Can i HAVE JScript in on open EVENT of the Fill In Form that will check if the user is USING Adobe Reader and notify them if NOT to download & use it only ?

Can any EE think of a way to semi / quasi FORCE the user beyond this that would be helpful ?

thanks... CJ

Adobe Acrobat JavaScript Validation Code Test for 3 PDF Fill In Fields

Have One Text Field - Name: HH
Have Second Text Field Name: SG
Have One Checkbox Field Name:  AG

WANT:
Only Allow checking of Checkbox  -  IF  HH  text box AND  SG text boxes have values in them...
Other wise no checking of the checkbox AG
Not sure WHAT is correct event - for checkbox - MouseUP - DN for best action results... ?????

IF Check in Checkbox is allowed after test (both HH and SG have values) then pop msg saying --- "allowed"
IF Check is NOT allowed after test then pop msg saying "not allowed"

Code So Far Not Working and Not Complete:

if (this.getField("HH").value != "") and (this.getfield("SG").value != "") {
    if (this.getField("AG").value != "Off") {
       app.alert("By Checking This Required CheckBox You Have Agreed", 3);                                                                        
                                                                       }
ELSE {

A number of years ago I designed a form in Adobe LiveCycle Designer. This document allowed me (users) to send the data that had been entered into the form as a xml file via email. This was handy since you could save the xml files and import a large number of them into excel at one time. I would like to know if it is possible to do this in the new versions of Acrobat (XI Pro). I found some JavaScript code that allow me to send the entire form, but then all of the data has to be re-entered into excel. I would appreciate and help of directionEmployee-Information.pdf

Some users intermittently get Outlook error message "Outlook experienced a serious problem with the 'adobe document cloud for microsoft outlook - acrobat' add-in. If you have seen this message multiple times, you should disable this add-in and check to see if an update is available." They get it infrequently.

I have an Outlook error event 1000 at the same time: "Add-in execution error. Outlook crashed during the 'Close' callback of the 'ItemEvents' interface while calling into the 'Adobe Document Cloud for Microsoft Outlook - Acrobat' add-in."

Adobe accounts are set up, users are logged in, and addin is enabled. Few, if any, actually use it.

What is going wrong? How do I fix it without just disabling the add-ins?

HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals

Build a website from the ground up by first learning the fundamentals of HTML5 and CSS3, the two popular programming languages used to present content online. HTML deals with fonts, colors, graphics, and hyperlinks, while CSS describes how HTML elements are to be displayed.

Does anyone know what the best pdf editor is?  I would like to be able to open a pdf file, add texts (mainly) for form filling and to be able to save what I have edited\added\removed.  And I would like the feature to export the pdf file to word too.

I am currently using Adobe Acrobat Standard DC but am trying to avoid having to pay a monthly subscription.  

I have other tools but they do not work as well.

Any recommendations?

Thank you in advance!

I once uploaded an MSWord file in EE & one expert commented he could
see my name, the company I worked for & even the previous person who
edited the file was identified.

Was told in MS Office there's this metadata.  Where/how can I check for
this metadata & how can we securely remove it?   I'm using MS Ofc
2000 & 2016

Does PDF files also have such metadata?

Ever since we upgraded to Acrobat 2019, we have been having problems creating pdf's from AutoCAD Civil 3d 2018. Black/white pdf's appear to have colored linework on-screen while zoomed out but turn black/gray as you zoom in (the pdf's plot correct without color). Also, random linework in the pdf is broken/randomly jumbled - dashed lines appear as arrows.
example of broken lineworkscreen colors turn black/gray as you zoom in

I have several Windows 10 computers with either Adobe Acrobat Standard or Professional DC installed (Volume Licenses).  When I open any pdf with Acrobat, I can see all the tools on the right side.  If I open the same document or any other document via an Internet browser (IE), the only tools displayed are Comment and Fill & Sign.  I spent two hours on the phone with Adobe Support yesterday trying to explain this issue even though they could actually see the issue via a remote session.  There was a significant language barrier that I did not want to deal with.  So the call was a complete waste of time.  

So what I am saying is if I view any file within IE, I only see two tools: comment and fill & Sign.  If I download the same file to the computer and open it up via acrobat I see all the tools. I looked over all Acrobat settings and they appear fine, but I am still stumped as to why not all the basic adobe tools appear.

In previous work place, the Canon IR ADV 4251 offers OCR scanning to PDF
ie the resultant softcopy PDF is text-searchable.

However, in current work place, the same model does not offer this feature.

Is this a plug-in or just an OS upgrade or some sort of additional add-on we
have to buy : can point me to some articles/manual that mention this?

If it's a software upgrade only, can point me to the specific version & where
to get the software?  If it's just a feature to turn on, appreciate the
instructions on how to do this

Odd issue.

I have a Windows 10 pro PC.

I am unable to change the default app for PDFs from Edge back to Adobe Acrobat.

It has been defaulted to Adobe but has reverted back and even using the fixes of playing with the registry it will not accept Adobe.

I can however change it from Edge to Chrome but not Acrobat.

Help!

Thanks

Hi there!

I have mistakenly closed a panel (don´t know if this is the proper name) in which I  was able to change a straight line to a dotted line easily.

I guess It was the same panel in which I could change the font size (and color) of text, among other things...

I have no idea where I can put this panel visible again.  If it is more than one panel, please tell me where to find both of them!

Thanks,
fskilnik.

We have Edge blocked in our school, which prevents us from opening PDFs.  I went in to Settings and tried to change the default app for pdfs from Edge to Adobe but Win10 just closes the settings window and doesn't save the change.  Any ideas?

Is it possible to add a suffix to auto page numbering in Adobe Acrobat DC ver 2019.008.20080

I see it allows adding a prefix but I would like to add a suffix as well.

Something like 'Page # of Agreement' not just 'Page #'

Thanks,
Stuart

I have Adobe Acrobat DC Pro: 2015 Release (Classic) Ver 2015.006.30456. It's missing the display mode item in view that allows for a dark theme. The current white on white is ridiculous. Program is updated fully. There seems to be no workaround. And I don't see a registry key to modify. Any way to change to the dark or night mode? Thanks.
