Dear all, thanks for your help, I've got it compiling fine after I added all
the functions in the tutorial Chapter 7 Annotations. However it doesn't do
anything (no call in PluginInit), how do I actually invoke the use it? I've

AVDoc currentAVDoc = AVAppGetActiveDoc();
PDDoc currentPDDoc = AVDocGetPDDoc(currentAVDoc);

Compiles okay but Acrobat crashes at startup, tried calling it by a menu

NewItem = AVMenuItemNew("Visit Annots", "ADBE:VisitAnnots", NULL, false,
NO_SHORTCUT, 0, NULL, gExtensionID);
AVMenuItemSetExecuteProc(NewItem, ASCallbackCreateProto(AVExecuteProc,
&VisitAllAnnots), NULL);
AVMenuAddMenuItem (SubMenu, NewItem, APPEND_MENUITEM);

But it doesn't compile at all, gives me one error:

c:\program files\adobe\acrobat 5.0
sdk\pluginsupport\samples\templates\convert\sources\convertinit.cpp(300) :
error C2440: '=' : cannot convert from 'void (__cdecl *)(struct _t_PDDoc *)'
to 'void (__cdecl *)(void *)'
This conversion requires a reinterpret_cast, a C-style cast or
function-style cast

Any ideas?

Thanks, Jules
