Many pages of online API reference are missing

As title. It seems more often than not, when I select a page in the API reference site (linked from the current SDK documentation), the page returns an HTTP 404 error. I'm having an incredibly hard time getting started with the SDK, as I'm just not able to find the documentation I need to get things running.

Which part(s) of the SDK? Plugin? IAC? JavaScript? Other?

Can you post some example links?

Did you download the SDK itself, since the full documentation is contain in the package?

I'm referring to this site, which is for plugins and is linked from the online SDK documentation site. As an example, the "AV_Layer" page is missing, as is "AVMenubar".

I've downloaded the "Acrobat DC SDK for Windows" zip file from here, but I'm not able to find any documentation files in there; under PluginSupport specifically, there are directories named "Headers", "PIBrokerSDK", "Samples", and "Tools", but none of them appear to have any documentation files in there.

I found this link to the documentation on working with menus from plugins - https://help.adobe.com/en_US/acrobat/acrobat_dc_sdk/2015/HTMLHelp/#t=Acro12_MasterBook%2FPlugins_Menu%2FCreating_Menus_and_Menu_Commands.htm

However, you are right that the AVLayer docs are missing! I’ll send a note off to see about getting that fixed!

Thanks! It would actually appear that none of the "XXX_Layer" pages are present on the site at all. Randomly clicking through the "Objects" pages returns a 404 error more often than not as well; it seems very patchy as to which pages are actually available online.

The documentation files should be in the SDK download. In HTML format. Perhaps zipped.
