    How to enable automatically "Enable search highlights from external highlight server" option in Acro

      In Acrobat Reader 9, under Edit > Preferences > Search, "Enable search highlights from external highlight server" option is by default set to false. How can I enable it automatically?

      Scenario: I will be using an external highlighting server on my website. Now, if this option is set to false by default, then the user cannot see hit highlights within the document. Asking every user to go inside Acrobat Reader or Acrobat Browser Plug-in is bit of a stretch, since the visitors on my website aren't that tech savvy. I am open to the following options:

      a) Embedding a piece of javascript code that will enable the above option the PDF the user is trying to view inside the Acrobat Browser Plugin

      b) Pass some open PDF parameter.
