    Commandline Args of Reader in Mac OS X

    enertegus

      Hi,

      I'm working on a crossplattform software using adobe reader as an extern help browser.

      For that reason i need to start the reader with commandline args from a shell. In Mac OS X I thought


      open -a /Applications/Adobe\ Reader\ 9/Adobe\ Reader.app --args /a zoom=200 manual.pdf

       

      would work. But I seems, that the mac version doesnot accept any commandlline paramters.

      As I read http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/en/acrobat/PDFOpenParameters.pdf I thought, the commandline paramters should work with OSX, too. Am I wrong or do I miss something very basic?

       

      Any help is welcome,

      Michael
