Hello, I'm totally new to Adobe Reader development and I'm in the need to develop a plugin for Reader that must implement certain functionality. Before starting, I think it's better to ask to the experts if what I want to do is possible or if what I need goes beyond what the Adobe API provides. So, if you're so kind, I'd like you to check the list of needed features and please tell me if they can be fulfilled with a Reader Plugin.
Also, I'm assuming that retrieving the list of opened documents, or the "active" document will be possible at any time. Please, correct me if wrong.
Thank you very much for your time, for reading and helping. Im' not asking you to tell me how to implement every single feature, I just need to know if I will be able to implement them when I get some knowledge.
Have a great day. Greets.

First – Adobe no longer supports Reader 7 or 8, so you would be on your own for those.
Second, in order to develop a plugin for Reader you need to obtain a license from Adobe. Details and forms are in the Acrobat SDK. Start this process ASAP as that will tell you whether you will be able to do your plugin or not.
