fmbatch and fmprint are the utilities that ship with FM that would do this. FMbatch would have to save as a .pdf; fmprint would print to a logical printer instance of Acrobat Distiller.

The short answer is that unless you fix problems before you run the scripts, they'll fail. So you basically need to make sure the books are solid ahead of time. > 3.

How does one enable the add comments option in the PDF? In Acrobat 7, not FM, use the Enable Comment tool for people to use Reader to add comments. In Acrobat 6, you can comment if you have the full version of Acrobat, but cannot use Reader. Again, details are in the Acrobat manual and on the support site. -- Art Campbell art.campbell at gmail.com "...
