With ES2 or ES4, saving output as a static pdf results in the following when previewing and when viewing in Acrobat 9.4.5:
When viewing in Reader X or XI, or when saving as a dynamic pdf and viewing in Acrobat 9.4.5, the output is as expected:
One obvious solution is to upgrade everyone to Acrobat X+, but that's not an option for the enterprise. Is there scripting I could add or a registry fix or some other alternative to hiding these annotation sequence numbers (or whatever they're referred to) in the static pdf, as the EDMS delivering this pdf to the end-users cannot currently handle XFA-enabled PDFs and so it must be static?
My suspicion is this is more of an Acrobat 9.4.5 issue than an LC issue, but I have researched extensively and cannot find a resolution.
The "annotation sequence numbers" are probably referring to the "Tab Order". You can access and modify the "Tab Order" from Designer; Go to the "Window" option and click on "Tab Order". For ES4 it's between "Data View" and "Object Library". Under "Tab Order", there's a button that should either be displayed as "Show Order" or "Hide Order". Clicking on that button will toggle between the two choices. I am assuming that if you click to make it "Hide Order" that your numbers will disappear.
No. That option will only control the tab order in Designer. It has no effect on the runtime. This seems like a bug in 9.4.5. Can the PDF be shared?
