Okay. So... I've been away from the Acrobat JavaScript realm for a while, but here's my question for my new project. I'm working with a real estate office that wants to create a master file for all transaction/listing related forms. These are hard copies with wet signatures, so most do not exist currently as a pdf.
I have created a single-page Acrobat Form. On the form is a list of the various documents that will need to be scanned for each portfolio. What I'd *like* to do is have the user click a check box or button to scan in each form, one at a time, then add them to the portfolio. In this way, the user creates one master file with all the related documents.
There has to be a good way to click on "Market Analysis", for instance, and have the user prompted to insert the document into the scanner, then add that file, named "Market Analysis" to the portfolio. Any help is appreciated!
Thanks, jkitzy.

There isn't, unfortunately... The best you can do with a script is execute the menu item for the scanning process, but it doesn't give you any access to the file created. And even that would require installing a script on the local machine of each user...
