I have a 3D pdf of a model and the measuring tool needs to be disabled before sending to the end user.
but this is a folder level script and will not be functional when sending to an end user off site as it requires to be placed on the hard drive.
Can anyone please advise if there is a script to disable a tool button which is not a folder level script?
Also I need to find the name of the button.
I have used the listToolbarButtons script to find the name of the 3D measuring tool and the console replies:
[cName:Multimedia, oChildren:[[cName:endMultimediaGroup],[cName:3D],[cName:RichMediaFlash],[cName:RichMediaS ound],[cName:RichMediaVideo]]]
I know that for end users who only have reader that the measuring tool is not activiated if the pdf is not reader enabled, its to disable the tool button for end users who have the full version of adobe that is required.
Any assistance to disable the 3d measuring tool would be most appreciated.
You can't disable the 3D Measure tool in that way. There is a 3D API function - runtime.disableTool() - but it only affects the 'movement' tools such as Spin and Rotate.
However, any 3D measurement involves the creation of a comment to store the value - so if you secure the PDF and prevent any changes, the commenting and measurement tools will vanish.
Thank you very much for your help.
I have secured the pdf to prevent changes and the tool for measuring is now hidden.
