Hello.  I'm creating a simple script to place form fields on a document.

There is a high probability that at least one of the fields will have to be moved at run time due to some variability in the document layout.

 

Is there a way to programatically enter form edit mode at the end of my script?  I realize it only saves a button click but if it's possible, why not
