I have been on the lookout for an Adobe DC plugin that has a calculator with tape. I can't seem to find one online.
I was considering writing the plugin myself (I have a degree in Computer Science) but somewhere I read that I needed to purchase a license from Adobe to write and distribute plugins. Is this true? If so, what is the cost?
Also, has anyone seen a plugin that does what I'm looking for?
Do you fully understand the difference between Acrobat and Reader? If you do, read on...
Plug-ins for Acrobat have no special license issues.
Plug-ins for Reader require approval (not automatic) and a special license, and payment.
YES!!! PDFlyer has a calculator and a tape where you can edit the line item descriptions for each amount. It's awesome. There are other PDFlyer tools that are great, too. Some need more work.
I have Adobe Acrobat DC. How do I add PDFlyer to run the calculator tape?
It doesn't come with Acrobat and isn't made by Adobe. Presumably it's a commercial plug-in you can buy and install. Try Google for it.
If you are a member of www.pdfscripting.com you can download it.
