With the introduction of the new Image field into Acrobat Reader DC (Continuous), I thought it was time to introduce some of the more advanced features of these fields and make them more accessible to the users.
Using this script you can apply my Image Field Toolkit to your fields. What this means is that they will be able to easily and quickly apply multiple commands to the fields, such as:
- Select an image
- Clear the image
- Set the image's rotation (in intervals of 90 degrees)
- Set the image's scaling options (how and when to scale)
- Set the caption text
- Clear the caption text
Clicking the field will then cause a pop-up menu to appear with all of these options, which can be used in both Acrobat and in the latest version of the free Reader DC (Continuous)!
Here's how it works. You open your file with the image fields in Acrobat and run the script from the menu item it adds to the Tools panel:
|The original file with the image fields|
It will identify those fields and prompt you to make sure you want to apply the Toolkit to them (this will overwrite any existing Mouse Up events associated with them!):
|The script's confirmation dialog|
|The same file in Acrobat Reader DC|
|The Toolkit for an image field|
And then change the way it looks. For example, we can rotate it:
|The image rotation options|
|The rotated image|
Or we can change the scaling options for it, so it fits better into the field:
|The image scaling options|
|The scaled image|
If we now click on the field that contains both an image and a caption we can do the same there, starting with selecting an image:
|The menu for an image field with a caption|
And then we can set a new caption text:
|The image and the new caption in the same field|
We can even clear the selected image, directly through the toolkit's menu:
So all in all, this toolkit adds a lot of options to the standard image fields that come with Acrobat and Reader, and allows you (and your users) to make the most of them!
