Acrobat -- Validate Required Fields Before Printing or Saving


Direct purchase using PayPal ($40 only)!


If you have a form that contain a set of required fields, they are only useful when the user wants to submit the form back to you. But what if you want to use the required feature of these fields when the form is printed as well? Or when the user tries to save it? Until now you couldn't, but with this script it becomes possible.

After running this script on a file, if someone tries to print it without filling in all the required fields, they will receive an error message and the form will print without any of the data in it. The same can be done when the file is saved.
Important: This tool won't prevent the file from being printed or saved entirely. It will just make sure it doesn't print/save with the partial data in it.

For example, here's a standard form with some required fields:


When the user tries to print the form without filling in all the required fields, they receive this message:


The printed form is blank, but the data they already filled-in is not lost! They can continue editing the form, and when all the fields are filled-in properly, the form will print as usual.

Batch Edit Zoom Level in Bookmarks


Direct purchase using PayPal ($50 only)!

Update: You can now test out this tool by downloading this free demo version.
The demo version works exactly like the full version, but it will only process the first 3 (top-level) bookmarks of the first 3 files you select, whereas the full version will process all the bookmarks in an entire folder (and all sub-folders).

With this little yet powerful tool you can edit an entire folder of PDF files within seconds and set all of the zoom level settings in bookmarks actions to one of the following options:
  • Inherit Zoom
  • Fit Page
  • Actual Size
  • Fit Width
  • Fit Visible

Simply select the folder, set the options you want, and click Run!

The tool can also convert JavaScript actions to a standard "Go to a page in this document"-action.



Note: This application requires Java installed. However, you don't need to have Acrobat on your computer for it to work.
