    enable commenting preference using applescript

    indegn5 Level 1

      Hi forum, i got tis aftre surfing...

       

      The  problem is : comments enabling happens only for the first 2 pdf inside the folder.

       

      Then from the third one,,, the dialog box just asks to save... manually and the script just stops.

       

      tell application "Finder"
          set my_folder to select folder "Macintosh HD:Users:jross:Desktop:Crop:Enable" as text
          set thePDFs to select (every item of my_folder)
      end tell

      repeat with aPDF in thePDFs
          tell application "Adobe Acrobat Pro"
              open aPDF
          end tell
          activate application "Adobe Acrobat Pro"
          tell application "System Events"
              tell process "Acrobat"
                  delay 10
                  click menu item "Enable for Commenting and Analysis in Adobe Reader..." of menu 1 of menu bar item "Comments" of menu bar 1
                  click button "Save" of window "Save As"
                  if exists sheet 1 of window "Save As" then
                      click button "Replace" of sheet 1 of window "Save As"
                  end if
              end tell
          end tell
          tell application "Adobe Acrobat Pro"
              close every document
          end tell
         
      end repeat

       

      please help to convert all the pdf inside the folder as "commenting enabled preferences".

       

      many thanks..
