conversion from a word file with AVConversionConvertToPDF hangs when word file is in revision mode, conversion from a word file with AVConversionConvertToPDF hangs when word file is in revision mode.

I am supposing that, like in manual mode, Word is waiting for the user to acknoledge some dialog.

Can I control Word from the conversion process?

Thanks a lot.

Word has a COM interface, but I don't think you can access it from an Acrobat Plug-in. But you could try, and if it works you can move the doc out of revision mode before performing the conversion.

What happens when you try this from the Acrobat UI. Is it handled properly?
