    Can notes be added with JavaScript in Acrobat XI?

    flashrocket

      Hi,

       

      When editing PDFs I often use the same notes/comments, which I have to write out/copy&paste each time. In MS Word I've automated this process by storing frequently used comments as macros.

       

      Is there a way to do this in Acrobat XI? I'd like to be able to run a Javascript script that adds a note to the currently selected text.

       

      E.g.,

       

      - The words "blah blah blah" are selected/highlighted

      - I then run a script which adds the note/comment  "blahdy blahdy blah" to the selected text.

       

      I'd make a seperate script for each of my frequently used notes.

       

      If anyone can point me in the direction of an example script that would be great.

       

      Thanks.
