Acrobat Pro/Reader 7 Batch enable commenting for Reader 7 - Adobe Acrobat Macintosh

I have been searching for a good way other than opening and saving each file using Acrobat 7 Pro in order to enable commenting in Reader 7. Is there another way? Is there a way to batch process many .pdf files at once and make them all enabled for commenting in Reader 7? Also, can I set up Distiller to make .pdfs enabled for commenting in Reader 7? If that were possible it would solve the problem. Finally, does any know if comment-enabled acrobat 7 .pdfs will be an option to choose for making .pdfs inside of InDesign CS2? Thanks ...

    Default Acrobat Pro/Reader 7 Batch enable commenting for Reader 7

    I have been searching for a good way other than opening and saving each file using Acrobat 7 Pro in order to enable commenting in Reader 7. Is there another way? Is there a way to batch process many .pdf files at once and make them all enabled for commenting in Reader 7?

    Finally, does any know if comment-enabled acrobat 7 .pdfs will be an option to choose for making .pdfs inside of InDesign CS2?

    Thanks for any answers to any of these questions.

    There's no batch prosess for this, it's not an option in Indesign cs 2.

    Hello again,
    Couldn't this be Javascripted? Couldn't a javascript be run that would at least automate the task of opening "Comments" and choosing "Enable for commenting in Adobe Reader"? I think I will try to write a script for this. If anyone has any ideas on how to approach this please let me know.
    Thanks,

    No. You can only JavaScript what a method exists for. Adobe didn't
    provide a method for this.

    You can JavaScript running any menu, but if that pops up a dialog box,
    it will continue to do so.

    Hello,
    Hey thanks for the info. Unfortunately, I have come to the same conclusion while browsing the web, the scripting forum, and planetpdf's site. That is disappointing news to say the least. This is what I read:

    "I would suspect Adobe wouldn't provide an automation interface to this, in the perhaps vain hope of selling LiveCycle Reader Extensions."

    I am not familiar with the LiveCycle Reader Extentions product, but it sounds like it is not available for the Mac so my search for a solution ends here.
    Thanks,
