Hi All

I have a working javascript that I'd like to make available to anybody on my pc opening any pdf.

I am totally new to this so baby-steps please.

I've Googled around and I think my file needs to be call price.js [tell me if Iam wrong]

I'am on a networked machine and under users I have a folder for me [paula]

That folder doesn't an Adobe folder in it [just saying what not there]

I've tried placing it in the Program files/Adobe/Adobe11.0/Acrobat/Javascripts folder [and it ran upon opening [so obviously wrong!]

Some on Google mention not to add the script to the Program files/Java/jre1.8.0_102/bin folder

So before I break something I thought I'd ask.

I originally was going to add it to a button on my Adobe Acrobat X1-Pro but I couldn't manage that, so I though could I make available it the scripts list within debugger

Any help wildly appreciated

Paul
