Tried yours: app.execMenuItem('AutoScroll'); and mine: app.execMenuItem("AutoScroll"); (Quotes are different on mine)
with no success. I can't believe they didn't include this in the Execute a Menu Item list.
In this case it doesn't matter which quotes you use.
And both app.execMenuItem('AutoScroll'); and app.execMenuItem("AutoScroll"); worked just fine for me on Acrobat Pro 8.1.3.
Thanks much, but it didn't work. I also tried using the " instead of
' but that also did not work.
I wish Adobe had not change their methodology for grabbing a Menu
item, as it was in earlier versions. It was so easy to grab it from
the Menu dropdown.
Again thanks. let me know if any other ideas come to mind.
As I said, it does work (for me at least), and the way you use it is with
the same execMenuItem() as before.
Which version of Acrobat do you have?
Thanks. That's great.

activate the auto scrolling. Is there a particular type of field that
has to be used?

You can read about it in the reference file, under Document Conventions,
Thanks very much.
I'm a newbie re: the JS stuff, but I like it. I'm coming to the
conclusion that there is so much about pdfs that people do not know
about. Some of it is truly remarkable.
As I started to overview JS scripting I came across the "trusted
function" stuff but haven't gotten in to it yet. Now I will. Is that
