Hi All,

 

I am using Acrobat Pro DC version 2020.012.20048

I would like to ask you to help with the following:

I have many pdf technical drawings. For each one I want to add an image holding additional information.

When this additional info changes, I create a new image file (image source is the same) and rename the old one.

What I would like to achieve is that pdf drawings update image after opening, showing the new file content.

Is there a solution for this? The more simple the better.

 

Thanks in advance,

Gabor

In order to update an image automatically several things must happen:

- You must use a button field with the image as its icon

- The path of the image must be known in advance

- You must add a script to the file itself that executes when it is opened

- You must create a backing .js file with a script that gives permission to the doc-level script to import an image into the field, and place it in the Acrobat Javascripts folder of each computer that is going to use this file.

If all of that is possible in your case I can help you further with the script.
