Hello,

We are using Adobe Reader DC plugin and would like to disable Adobe keyboard shortcuts like F8 to show/hide the Adobe Toolbars, Ctrl+Shift+S to Save, Ctrl+P to Print, etc programmatically

We understand that in previous releases of Adobe Acrobat/Reader this was NOT possible or restricted. Can some one confirm if this is possible with Acrobat/Reader DC? Also, a quick example of how this can be achieved could also help.

Please let me know your views on this.

Thanks,

Amish

There are two separate issues here…

1 – Can you technically modify (or disable) existing shortcuts?

2 – Can you legally (under the RIKLA) modify or disable existing shortcuts?

On #1, while there is nothing in the Acrobat SDK that provides such functionality, I don’t see any reason why a plugin could not use OS-provided means to do this.

On #2, evaluation of a RIKLA is an Adobe-internal process and we evaluate each one individually on its merit. You would need to submit the RIKLA with details of what your plugin does and why and we’ll take a look

Hope that helps.

Adobe very rarely discuss their plans. Did you make a request anywhere (posting here does not reach the relevant people)? Frankly seems unlikely they would allow it.
