Hi,

I need to execute a folder level javascript in Acrobat Pro DC (Version 2019.008.20071) which was accessible in Acrobat Pro XI through the Add-on tools menu item and worked just fine. Unfortunately I am missing the Add-on tools menu item in Acrobat Pro DC.

Does anyone know how to use folder level javascript in Acrobat DC via a custom toolbar button, like it was working before in Acrobat XI Pro?

I tried both, installing the script in the user and app javascript folder of Acrobat DC.

Well, you need to make sure that these two settings are enabled (under Edit - Preferences - JavaScript):- Enable Acrobat JavaScript- Enable menu items JavaScript execution privilegesBeside that you just need to place your js file in the Javascripts folder and that's it.

It should still work, if installed correctly. The menu item will appear

under Tools - Add-On Tools.

I tried it using a script which worked in Acrobat Pro XI and using a dedicated Acrobat Pro DC script which was available online.

Are there some setting that must be changed before using JavaScript in DC?

How do I install a JavaScript add-on in Acrobat Pro DC correctly?
