Say I have a PDF with the Author, etc. already filled in in File>Doc Info>General window(it gets there from Distilling a Word doc that had the info filled in).
I want to add to a page in this PDF a form field that will get the Author name from this metadata. All I see in the AcroFormsJS Object Spec document from Adobe is the ability to define this data (this.author = "John Smith"), but not GET it if it already exists. Surely if you can set it you can get it?! Can someone tell me the Jscript Syntax?
Thanks a ton!
