Security restrictions in Acrobat don't allow this.
Thank you for your reply. It's amazing that Acrobat is so powerful but yet it's become so weak...
Has it ever been able to do that? I doubt it.
I'm not really sure but I know that prior to Acrobat version 6 you were able to program buttons that could copy/cut/paste and a bunch of other sutff which is no longer present the latter versions. So maybe it was possible back then but I'm not sure.
You're right that the security restrictions are much stricter. For some of
them I understand the reasoning behind it, for example I wouldn't want an
Acroabt script to be able to launch an application on my machine, but stuff
like preventing pasting is a bit silly.
I hope you understand where my frustration comes from - but don't get me wrong; I love Acrobat. Any ideas of how I could acomplish what I need? Maybe there might be other methods in Acrobat that I'm not aware of. Please share any ideas you might have...
If the only thing you wanted to do was paste the signature in Acrobat, then
You can write a Visual Basic application to do that, or even something using
By the way, VB can also launch a JS in Acrobat.
