Here is another candidate for the 2003 Hoover award:
that the openDoc() method can be used in a Batch Sequence.
Batch Sequences that incorporate openDoc() work on fine a
Macintosh. Try this on Windows and an error message occurs
that says "There is a modal dialog open." this happens
even though no dialog box is visible.
became a documented feature. However, openDoc() still
works on the Macintosh; it still fails on Windows.
i.e. Adobe documentation still does not match reality.
IMHO, this was a poor way to deal with a bug that greatly
limits the usefulness of batch sequences. Without this
feature, one cannot write one-pass batch sequences that
sumamrize or combine the results from multiple PDF files.
