I have a VBScript file that iterates through a designated folder. My end goal is to check for files over 25MB and use Acrobat 9's "Optimize scanned file" feature to make them smaller.
Unfortunately, I do not know the command or function within Acrobat's API in order to make this happen. What commands can I use to automate the process of optimizing scanned files?
This is a VBScript file running on a local computer with Acrobat 9 installed. I have tried looking through Acrobat 9's API documentation but cannot seem to find an answer.
My code so far:
Const PDF_FOLDER = "Z:\ARM\temp\"
Set gAcro = CreateObject("AcroExch.App")
Set newPD = CreateObject("AcroExch.PDDoc")
Set newAV = CreateObject("AcroExch.AVDoc")
Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set oFolder = fso.GetFolder(PDF_FOLDER).Files
For Each fileObj In oFolder
If fileObj.size/1000000 > 25 Then
newAV.Open PDF_FOLDER & fileObj.Name, fileObj.Name
'//INSERT COMMAND FOR "OPTIMIZE SCANNED FILE"
Ideally, this will optimize the scanned file, save it to overwrite the current one, close, and continue iteration. all help would be appreciated in filling the comment section in the if statement.
Acrobat 9 has been out of support for at least 3-5 years now.
I'm aware; but I don't think that really helps me here.
What makes you think there is a way to do this? Never seen it in the documentation of any version. (To be honest the API changes little).
Im pretty sure the API includes a way to access features in the Acrobat application ribbon and to check that they exist,
so it seems, given that "Optimize scanned files" is a feature in the toolbar, that there should be some way to interact with it.
You can kick off the feature as if the user choose it from the menu using “executeMenuItem” – but that will just bring up the UI and you will need to then manually click through it. If that works – have at it!
Pretty sure is good. When you find the API please let us know.
