There are two general methods for viewing and accessing existing scripts in Acrobat and PDF documents. The first and easiest to use is the Acrobat menu item:
This menu item is for Document scripts only. It concatenates all the scripts in the current PDF into a single block of text. Since it puts all the scripts in one place, it is helpful for working on interrelated scripts in different locations in the PDF. The different scripts are separated by XML tags (Figure 1) that indicate the script type and location. Acrobat uses these tags when it puts the scripts back into the PDF. If these tags are changed in any way, Acrobat will not be able to put the code back where it belongs. So don’t edit or alter these tags!
