Hi!

I am new to acrobat plugins.  I am having set of tools developed in acrobat java script like auto bookmarking.  I wanted to convert this into plugins using c++.  I dont know where to start and how to start.  Can any one help me on this?  How to create?  Which platform is required to create plugin?  How to create .api file?

1) You need to study the distribution models of Acrobat. Document Cloud Product Tracks — DC Deployment Planning and Configuration

2) You can let the end user do what they like. Of course it will not work in Acrobat Reader or if the wrong folder is chosen. My choices are made to reduce the level of tech support calls we have to deal with.

3) A custom app or a deployment based on Windows Installer. Your choice.

4) No, you have to develop your own sales/distribution channel. Adobe sold selected plug-ins at one time, but not for more than 10 years.

Creative Cloud, in its full subscription (all apps) version includes Acrobat Pro DC. This does not change your project or needs in any way, but it is a choice for your end users, who will already have Acrobat Pro if they have an All Apps CC subscription.
