Topic: Batch jobs in 6.0
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 91420

I'm testing out an application, which was developed in 5.0, in Acrobat 6.0 Pro. The biggest, not the only, problem I'm having is with my batch jobs.

My application uses the "Execute Menu Item" action in both the Set Page Actions --> Open page and in a button mouse up action to execute one of the particular batch jobs I created. In 5.0 this works great without any user interface, I have the General Preference option for Batch processing to NOT show the run dialog confirmation, and the user will only see the progress bar displayed.

In 6.0 you don't even have the option to choose the batch job you want to execute, making the user select the job from the batch dialog box. I looked up the listMenuItems() for 6.0 hoping that the individual jobs might be executable thru javaScript, but they are not.

Does anyone know how you can get a batch job to run without UI in 6.0??

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security

For example, those document restrictions that PDF files sometimes have -- no Printing, Content Copying, Page Extraction, etc -- are essentially useless unless the PDF also has a User Password.
