Will someone please tell me why Adobe would remove such a useful feature as the “File>Attach to Email...” from the Link Properties dialogue box under the “Execute a menu item” - “Add” options list. The idea of an improved version, Acrobat X, is to add utility not make it less useful.
Re: Dave’s response; Sad that would have been the reasoning compelling the removal of that function when security can be managed in Acrobat’s quite comprehensive security dialogue box. What’s worse is when a document had applied that link function when created in an earlier version of Acrobat, Acrobat X can’t pick it up... can’t see it, so “suddenly” how users were able to distribute existing documents, say, in an academic setting course material to students, can’t be done upon upgrading to Acrobat X. So sad, so sad.
Direct access to menu items isn't the preferred method to execute functions available via the JSAPI, you should simply trigger the JS function on a button or link:
or if you want to set the message params:
cTo: "recipient @ example.addr",
cCC: "cc @ example.addr",
cSubject: "A PDF file",
cMsg: "here is the PDF."
A belated, thank you, Dave. I had been away for a few days. Unfortunately, you’re speaking way over my head. If that function that was removed can be induced by some means, that’d be great, but for me it’d have to be detailed in layman’s language. You lost me at “via the JSAPI.”
