Hello All,

I am planning to write plug in for acrobat reader. My requirement is When you open any padf file, i want to add new meny option "Save to SP", this will popup custom user interface and will ask few questions.

Based on the questions, program decides upload location in SharEPoint online sites. On finish, it will upload pdf file to one of the SharePoint online site.

Questions are

1) What all development options available? Javascript or other SDK

2) Can this functionality possible in Acrobat reader, as we are not modifying anything in PDF file. This custom UI will just upload PDF file to SharePoint.

Thanks in advance for your feedback and guiding me on this

Plugins for Reader require getting a special license from Adobe, which is complicated and expensive.

I think that a script (written in JavaScript) can do everything you described, and it can be developed and distributed for free. There's no real need for a plugin.

You will have to install it on every machine, though, but that's the same with a plugin...

Hi,

Great and appreciate your quick reply on this.

I will now explore Javascript option for developing this piece of functionality.

I am referring to following links for this.

I hope these two links will give me jumpstart for my functionality.

Thanks again
