Hi,

When I run a custom action on a batch of files that includes a Word document, Adobe will convert the Workd document into a temporary PDF file then run the action on that file. Is there a way to get Adobe to simply skip any document that is not a PDF when running an action on a batch of files?

Thank you!

If you have Acrobat DC (or 2015 or 2017) then no. It was possible with

earlier versions, though...

I have Adobe XI Pro, I guess that means it's not possible?

Thank you for your help!

Sorry, I made a mistake above. This option was removed in the XI version, not in DC. It existed up to version X. So no, you can't do it.
