Hello Guys, Is there any method to interact with internet explorer's adobe tool bar to save a pdf?

The launchURL method of the app object can do the former, and the getURL method of the document object can do the latter.

Be sure to carefully read the documentation of both methods, though, as they have various limitations (especially getURL).

Oh, and to save the file use the saveAs method. Again, restrictions apply.
