I read all about the changing the scripts but its not really working for me. I was hoping someone could help me with directions on how to auto populate the date into designated text fields when my adobe document is first opened?
I am working in Adobe Acrobat 9.
getField("date1").value = util.printd("mm/dd/yyyy", new Date());
It will execute when the document is opened and update the field's value. It can be refined to only populate when the field is empty, preventing it from getting overwritten on subsequent openings after it's initially set and saved.
and where do I type that information into? the text box?
but there is no "Document Java Scripts option. The only option is to "Set Document Action" with in that though it wants to change my whole document.
Am I making any since?
