Hi,

For some reason, the dialogue window is appearing too big and users are unable to see all the fields in the dialogue window.  My solution was to add a scroll to the dialogue window or reduce the size of the dialogue window?  Can you tell me how to do both?  I looked in API but it appears to only relate to a scroll for a field box, not the dialogue window.

Using Acrobat Adobe X Pro

Thx.

Take a look here for a potential workaround: Pop-Up Window is big, so, I can not click "Enter", please give me a hand ()

Also, make sure that you upgrade to the latest version of Acrobat X, if I remember correctly, there was a patch at some time that did add a scrollbar to large dialogs.

AFAIK, it's not possible.

Well, why is it happening for some users and not others?

Is there a work around?  For instance, do they need to change zoom setting?  I don't understand why the dialogue window does not adjust.

HI,

So I created Action Wizard in Adobe Acrobat X Pro and users have imported this sequence action into Adobe Acrobat XI Pro.  Adobe XI allows this.  Anyway, could the very fact that users are accessing action wizard from one made in older version be causing it?
