I have Acrobat 9 Pro and 10 Pro on Windows and Acrobat 9 Pro on Mac OS. Is it possible to extract a SWF from a PDF so that I can use the SWF for other purposes? There is no security on the PDF.
Not with Acrobat's user interface. In theory you could write a plugin to do it, or use a third party application to extract the COS dictionary directly from the PDF at a byte level, but Acrobat isn't about to offer any help.
Thanks for confirming what I suspected was the case.
If anyone knows of a script to extract SWFs from a PDF, would appreciate if you'd let me know.
