    Posted: 14 May 2014 at 8:34pm

Hello,

I am using Acrobat Professional 7 and I am trying to use the JavaScript Debugger but a number of buttons are not active.  They are "Resume Execution", "Step Over", "Step into" and "Step Out" buttons.  Also the Call Stack drop-down and the field below the Inspect drop down is greyed out.

I am new to editing external js files in the Acrobat JavaScript Debugger.  Please tell me what I am doing wrong.

Thanks

 

Linda

What OS are you using?

Acrobat 7 is rather old. You are aware that Acrobat 7, 8, and 9 are past their service life as established by Adobe.
 
It is possible that an OS update may have caused some issue with Acrobat 7.

OK, I have just purchased Adobe Acrobat X and I have the same issue. I am trying to use the JavaScript Debugger but the "Step Over", "Step into", "Step Out" etc. buttons are not active.

My operating system is Windows 7.

Please let me know if you need to know anything else.

Thanks

Linda

Go to Edit - Preferences - JavaScript and make sure that interactive console and the JS debugger are turned on.

I have done that already. Did control + K to get Preferences, selected JavaScript on the left and made those selections. Does it matter that I am trying to debug an external js file in the script window?

Thanks

Yes, it does. I think you can only do that with certain supported apps. See the JS reference file for more info.

Can you send me a link to the JS reference file that you are talking about?
 
Thanks

Or, on the other hand, I've not heard of anyone using those buttons, that I can recall. What are you trying to achieve?
