I don't know why this works with some versions of CS and not with others -- anyway, it is not officially stated anywhere in documentation that it should work.
But after reading your post, I remembered that long ago I had read a document about programming Acrobat using Visual Basic. Today I reread it again and made a few tests -- and it works.
I've been doing some digging around myself, and maybe someone with a working bridgetalk acrobat can help me out by verifying:
It appears that the application specifiers (the bridgetalk exports) are handled by the startup scripts found in "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Startup Scripts CS4\<specifier-name>\<specifier-name>.jsx"
The problem here, is that I have no "acrobat-9.0" folder with that JS inside it. Can someone who actually has this bridgetalk cs4 working let me know if you have it?
Will continue looking into JSObject in the meantime.
Did you mean "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Startup Scripts CS4\<specifier-name>\<specifier-name>.jsx" ?
These are application startup scripts containing cross-DOM functions and the application-specific exported functions.
Yes, Common Files should have been in there.
There is no Acrobat-9.0, while 8.0 did have this file to allow cross-communication. That is my issue - why is there no acrobat 9.0 file? The bridgetalk documentation does list acrobat-9.0 as a valid target.
Hi Pat R O\'Neill
Do you find any solution to your this problem ? I think you have some alternative or solution to your problem so please share it as I am also facing the same problem .
I would switch from PC to Mac and would run Acrobat JacaScript from AppleScript.
