Hello, 

We create lots of site layouts in PDF and would like to have the pdf open on other peoples computers/mobiles with the measure tool function ready as standard.  Currently we have to go through the motions of explaining how to do it and surprise surprise, most folk still can't seem to do it. Maybe because it involves doing something other than it just being there ready for them.

Our PDF's are created through AutoCAD and placed in a sharepoint folder for the individual sites use. Is there an ability to add a script to the generated PDF that will open up the measure tool at the same time as the PDF?

Thank you in advance.

Chris

Hi Chris,

We apologize for the delay.

There is no direct method of adding measuring tool in Acrobat that to be opened automatically at the end users end. Since you have mentioned about JavaScript so we are moving this query to the JavaScript​ space for our experts to look into it. If there is any possibility, they will let you know.

Regards,

Akanchha
