Q & A
What is Acrobat JavaScript?
JavaScript is an object-oriented scripting language developed by Netscape Communications. Acrobat JavaScript implements extensions, in the form of new objects and their accompanying methods and properties, to the JavaScript programming language. These Acrobat-specific objects enable a developer to manipulate a PDF file, allowing the PDF file to communicate with a database, modify its appearance, and so on.
What can you do with Acrobat JavaScript?
Acrobat JavaScript enables you to perform calculations in form fields, respond to user actions, validate user data, modify appearance of Acrobat application, control the behavior of PDF documents, dynamically modify document's appearance and functions, process multiple PDF documents with batch sequences, dynamically create new pages based on template, interface to a database. Acrobat JavaScript code can be executed:
- as an action to respond to user input in the document.
- as document-level script to respond to actions like printing.
- as part of a batch processing sequence that can be applied to multiple files.
Where can I read more about Acrobat JavaScript?
Acrobat JavaScript enables you to do a wide variety of things within a PDF document. The Adobe Solutions Network (ASN) has an Adobe Acrobat JavaScript Training course that covers a wide variety of the possibilities available within Acrobat JavaScript.
Other Acrobat JavaScript documents available from Adobe: Acrobat JavaScript Scripting Guide - provides general introduction into JavaScript programming for Adobe Acrobat. Acrobat JavaScript Object Specification - contains detailed description of all Acrobat specific objects and classes.
How to create a batch sequence with JavaScript code?
The batch processing tool in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC is called Action Wizard. Please see the following tutorial on step-by-step introduction to Action Wizard functionality. Add "Execute JavaScript" tool to the "action" in Action Wizard to run a custom JavaScript code.
Sample Acrobat JavaScripts

Most sample scripts provided on this page are designed to be run inside Action Wizard's "actions". Most scripts have comments in the code that will help you to understand the logic and make any custom modifications.

Create page bookmarks
Description: Automatically creates a bookmark for each page in the document: Page 1, Page 2, Page 3,...
/* Create bookmarks for each page in the document */
var root = this.bookmarkRoot;
try {

    for (var i = 0; i < this.numPages; i++)
       {
       root.createChild("Page " + (i+1), "this.pageNum=" + i, i);
       }

catch(e)
{
app.alert("Processing error: "+e)
}
Add "Bookmark All Pages" menu to Adobe Acrobat
The code below shows how to add "Bookmark All Pages" menu to the Adobe Acrobat interface. Save this code with *.js file extension and place it into JavaScripts folder under Adobe Acrobat installation. For example, for Acrobat DC this folder is located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 2017\Acrobat\JavaScripts\. It will add "Plug-ins / Bookmark All Pages" menu to the Adobe Acrobat. The menu is disabled if there is no PDF document open.
app.addMenuItem({ cName: "&Bookmark Every Page", cParent: "Extensions",
cExec: "BookmarkAllPages();",
cEnable: "event.rc = (event.target != null);",
nPos: 0
});

function BookmarkAllPages()
{
var t = app.thermometer;
t.duration = this.numPages;
t.begin();

     /* Create bookmarks for each page in the document */
     var root = this.bookmarkRoot;
     try {

          for (var i = 0; i < this.numPages; i++)
          {
               t.value = i;
               t.text = "Processing page " + (i + 1);
               if (t.cancelled) break;
               root.createChild("Page " + (i+1), "this.pageNum=" + i, i);
          }
     } 
     catch(e)
     {
     app.alert("Processing error: "+e)
     }
t.end();
}
Delete All Bookmarks
The following single line of code will delete all bookmarks from the current PDF document.
this.bookmarkRoot.remove();
The code below shows how to add "Delete All Bookmarks" menu to the Adobe Acrobat interface. Save this code with *.js file extension and place it into JavaScripts folder under Adobe Acrobat installation. For example, for Acrobat DC this folder is located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 2017\Acrobat\JavaScripts\. It will add "Plug-ins / Delete All Bookmarks" menu to the Adobe Acrobat. The menu is disabled if there is no PDF document open.
app.addMenuItem({ cName: "&Delete All Bookmarks", cParent: "Extensions",
cExec: "this.bookmarkRoot.remove();",
cEnable: "event.rc = (event.target != null);",
nPos: 0
});
Trim Bookmark Titles to First N-characters
The following script trims all bookmarks to first 10 characters. Adjust this value in the script to get the desired results.
/* Trim Bookmark Titles */

function TrimBookmarkTitle(NumChars, Bm, nLevel)
{
    var nLevelMax = 2; // change maximum level of the processed bookmarks, starts from 0
    if (nLevel > nLevelMax)
    {
        return;
    }

    var Title = new String(Bm.name);
    Bm.name = Title.substr(0, NumChars); // set bookmark title to first NumChars characters
    // Uncomment one of the following lines for a desired action
    // Bm.name = Title.substr(-NumChars,NumChars); // set bookmak title to last NumChars
    // Bm.name = Title.slice(NumChars,Title.length); // trims first NumChars from the bookmark
    // Bm.name = Title.slice(0,-NumChars); // trims last NumChars from the bookmark
    
    // process children
    if (Bm.children != null)
    {     
     for (var i = 0; i < Bm.children.length; i++)
     {     
          TrimBookmarkTitle(NumChars, Bm.children[i], nLevel + 1);
     }     
    }
}

var root = this.bookmarkRoot;
var NumCharsToTrimTo = 10; // trim bookmark title to the first 10 characters
TrimBookmarkTitle(NumCharsToTrimTo, root, 0);
Merge First and Second Bookmark Levels
The following script combines first level bookmark titles with second level bookmarks, then deletes the second level bookmarks.
/* Merge first level bookmark titles with second level bookmarks, delete second level bookmark */
function MergeTitles(Bm)
{
     if (Bm.children != null)
     {     
          Bm.name = Bm.name + " " + Bm.children[0].name;
          Bm.children[0].remove();
     }
}

var root = this.bookmarkRoot;
if (root.children != null)
{     
     for (var i = 0; i < root.children.length; i++)
     {     
          MergeTitles(root.children[i]);
     }

}

Delete Links and Attachments
The following script deletes all links and file attachments from the current PDF file.
/* Delete All Links and File Attachments */
this.syncAnnotScan();
var numpages = this.numPages;
for (var i=0; i < numpages; i++) 
{
    var annots = this.getAnnots( { nPage:i});
    if (annots != null)
    {
        for (var j = annots.length - 1; j >= 0 ; j--)
        {
            if (annots[j].type == "Link" || annots[j].type == "FileAttachment")
            {
                annots[j].destroy();
            }
        }
    }
}
Mark misspelled words
The code below spellchecks every word in the document and marks misspelled ones with a squiggle annotation.
/* Mark misspelled words with squiggle */
var chWord, numWords;
for (var i = 0; i < this.numPages; i++)
{
    numWords = this.getPageNumWords(i);
    for (var j = 0; j < numWords; j++) {
        ckWord = spell.checkWord(this.getPageNthWord(i,j))
        if (ckWord != null) {
            this.addAnnot({
                page: i,
                type: "Squiggly",
                quads: this.getPageNthWordQuads(i,j),
                author: "A.C.Acrobat",
                contents: ckWord.toString()
            });
            }
        }
}
Duplicate every page in the document (carbon copy)
Use this script to repeat each page multiple times in the output (1,1,1,2,2,2...). This operation is also known as "carbon copy".
// Carbon Copy pages in the PDF file 
// IMPORTANT: Set Output Options to the filename you need

// CHANGE THIS NUMBER: IT'S NUMBER OF ADDITIONAL COPIES 
var nNumCopies = 2; // make 1 additional copy(es) of each page

try {

var newName = this.path;
var filename = newName.replace(".pdf","_Original.pdf"); // save a copy of original document
this.saveAs(filename);

var Num = this.numPages;
var nNumDups = nNumCopies+1; 

for (var i = 0; i < Num; i++) {
    for (var j = 0; j < nNumCopies; j++) {
        k = i*nNumDups + j;
        this.insertPages({ nPage: k, cPath:newName, nStart:i });
        }
    }

// set page labels: number each copy with a label
for (var k = 0; k < this.numPages; k+= nNumDups) 
{
     this.setPageLabels(k,[ "D", "Copy ", 1]);   
}

Renaming Files Using Bookmark Text
Use this script as an example on how to use bookmark titles to rename files. This script takes first 3 bookmarks and creates a custom filename that is used to save a file.
/* Rename Files Using Bookmarks */
// This is a script that can rename files based on bookmarks. 
// If document has 3 bookmarks the output filename is:
// First bookmark From Second Bookmark – Third Bookmark
// If there are more than 3 bookmarks, then output filename is:
// First bookmark From Second Bookmark To Third Bookmark – Forth Bookmark 

var fname = "";
var bm = this.bookmarkRoot;

// build a name
if (bm.children != null)
{        
        var numBookmarks = Math.min(4,bm.children.length);
     for (var i = 0; i < numBookmarks; i++)
     {
          switch (i) 
                {
                    case 1:
                        fname += " From ";
                        break;
                    case 2:
                        if (numBookmarks > 3)
                        {
                            fname += " To ";
                        }
                        else
                        {
                            fname += " - ";
                        }
                        break;
                    case 3:
                        fname += " - ";
                        break;
                    
                }
          fname += bm.children[i].name;
     }
}

// make sure no illegal characters are included in the filename
var outputname = fname.replace(/[?:\\/|<>"*]/g,"_");

// console.println(outputname);

// save document into c:/data/ folder
// IMPORTANT: replace with a desired output folder location
this.saveAs("/c/data/" + outputname + ".pdf");
Saving Files With Time Stamp In The Filename
The following script creates unique names for documents based on a current time. This script does not overwrite existing files.

Create Report Document Listing All Bookmarks
The following script creates a report document (in PDF format) that lists all bookmarks in the input PDF file.
/* Create a bookmark report */

function PrintBookmark(Report, Bm, nLevel)
