- shrink and expand options in -toPostScript command line options do not work
The -shrink and -expand suboptions when given with the -toPostScript command line option do not work – these options have no effect on the scaling property of the generated postscript file.[FIXED IN ADOBE READER 8.1.2]
The JS fragment:
f = getField(name)
f.display = display.hidden
f.display = display.true
With Adobe Reader 8.1.1 the fragment fails when run in a page-open /PO event, unless the PDF is forms-enabled.
But the fragment works in a non-forms enabled PDF for all the other events: mouse down, mouse up, mouse enter,
mouse exit etc.
