Hello,


Is there a possibility in Acrobat to add a field with a random number, which will change for each printed copy of a document. it would be perfect if such number could be then displayed as a 1D barcode.

In other words, if I have a booklet of 6 pages on each page at the bottom a random number/barcode would be printed, but if user prints 10 copies each copy would have a unique number.

Many thanks for any suggestions.

Yes, and no. It is possible to create a text field with a 1D barcode font and set up a script to assign a random value to it before the file is printed. However, that script only executes once per printing command, so if the user selected to print 10 identical copies of the file in a single command, all of the copies will have the same barcode on them...
