    Unable to run JavaScript via Console in Acro Pro 8.2.2 - security issue?

    David Hollis Level 1

      I'm unable to run a JavaScript either from the Console or via AppleScript's do script.


      At first I thought it was a keyboard issue as I'm using a MacBook Pro, but fn-Return for Enter works in Acrobat 7.1.0 Console.


      Trying to run a JavaScript from AppleScript with do script returns 'Adobe Acrobat Professional got an error: can't continue do script'


      The various preferences are:



      Enable Acrobat JavaScript yes

      Enable menu items JavaScript execution privileges yes

      Enable global object security policy no

      Enable JavaScript Debugger after Acrobat is started yes

      Enable interactive console yes

      Show console on errors and messages yes


      Security (Enhanced)

      Enable Enhanced security no



      I think these settings should enable JavaScript to be run from the Console, but I'm getting the impression that the latest security fix is locking down JavaScript despite these settings.


      I'm on a MacBook Pro running Mac OS X 10.5.8


      Has anyone else seen anything like this? Looks like I'll be going back to 7.1.0 for a while.
