How can I attach a PDF in an email, using an interactive button in the PDF-document?
I tried to create a form button with the menu action 'attach this PDF in an email'.
This Send.to-action doesn't work with Microsoft.
With a form button you can aply the action 'Attach to Email...' from the Acrobat Reader menu.
The PDF runs on a Mac without a problem. When you push the 'send to' button it opens Mail and attaches the entire PDF to you mail.
In Microsoft this doesn't work. The button doesn't open Outlook.
But like I said, I don't think it would work if the menu item didn't work,
since they both do basically the same thing.
Is Outlook set-up as the default email client on your system? Was the file
saved before you tried to email it?
In our company we use different systems. As a designer I am using a Mac, standard with Mail.
Our account managers use Windows, standard with Outlook.
Our client is having the same difficulties with Outlook.
It is an interactive PDF i made with Adobe Acrobat Professional.
The button is used to attach the PDF file the user is reading.
But adressing mail is difficult in Microsoft.
The mailDoc code works on my Mac, but doesn't work with Outlook 2010...
Is there a code that creates a mail with the link where someone else can find the PDF?
Maybe attaching the document is the problem.
app.mailMsg(true) will create a blank message (only in Acrobat, not in
Reader), but my guess is that wouldn't work for you either.
It's probably a problem with the way Outlook is set up on the machine.
Adressing Mail on a Mac works.
var cMyMsg = "First text line of the message:\n\n" +
"\"Second text line with url (example): http://www.linktothedocument.pdf\n\n";
cSubject: "Name of the document",
But this doesn't work on a Windows machine with Outlook 2010 either.
All you have to do is
Thanks for your replie.
Nice alternative, but it still doesn't work on a Windows machine when the
mail software from Microsoft doesn't react on PDF actions.
You can do many things in Acrobat, but it is a problem when it doesn't work
on Windows and iPad.
So now I am looking for alternatives like interactive magazine software
(based on html5).
