My understanding is that Adobe does not allow this functionality. Could someone link me an official reason/response as to why this is?
Also, if anyone has any ideas to get around this, please let me know. These PDFs will open in a program in full screen. A simple exit button, or even a minimize button, would allow them to go straight back to the program. Now it only closes the document, leaving Adobe Reader still open. It just looks unprofessional and adds an annoying step to getting back to the program. Please help.
Thank you for your time.
You can't close or minimize Acrobat or Reader using a script.
Here where it's documented: http://livedocs.adobe.com/acrobat_sdk/9.1/Acrobat9_1_HTMLHelp/JS_API_AcroJS.88.143.html
It makes sense because one document should not be able to automatically close Acrobat/Reader, which may have multiple documents opened.
Thank you, this does help! It clears things up for me.
