Hi there,

 

I am pasting in javascipt 662 lines of code and I keep getting the message above. Does anyone know a workaround for this as I really need to have all the javascript entered. 

 

Any help greatly appreciated.

What application did you use? With some of them you have to close the application entirely for the script to update and Acrobat to become responsive once more.

1. You can split the code in several parts.

2. You can use an external editor (Preferences : JavaScript), for Mac the best one is BBEdit.

Hi 

 

Many thanks for your reply. I have tried this but Acrobat gets the Spinning Beach ball of death and doesn't respond so has to be force quit.
