    Disabling Comment Pop-ups using Javascript

    met547 Level 1

      Using Acrobat Pro X for forms design. I use drawing markups (lines, rectangles, text boxes) and annotations (custom stamps) on my forms.

      The issue with these is that when you open the form with reader, you are able to click and select all these, and if you double-click, the comment pop-ups appear.

       

      I think I can disable this behavior in preferences, but when the form is going to be used by a lot of people (most of them not very proficient in the use of software), telling everybody to change their preferences so they don't get a bunch of pop-ups is not practical.

       

      Is there anyway I can disable this behavior using Javascript?

       

      What I want is to have all these lines, rectangles, text boxes, and stamps as static items, that can't be selected or have any interaction with. These are for show, to improve the form design, no interaction needed. The only way I can do this now is by placing a 'read only' field on top of each one of these items, but I think there is a better way to do it.

       

      Thank you.
