Adobe Reader Command Line Reference

You can find something about this in the Adobe Developer FAQ. (It's a PDF document rather than a web page, which I guess is unsurprising in this particular case.)

The FAQ notes that the use of the command line switches is unsupported.

To open a file it's:

The following switches are available:

  • - Launch a new instance of Reader even if one is already open
  • - Don't show the splash screen
  • - Don't show the open file dialog
  • - Open as a minimized window
  • - Open and go straight to the print dialog
  • - Print the file the specified printer.

I found this:

Open a PDF file with navigation pane active, zoom out to 50%, and search for and highlight the word "batch":


To open a PDF at page 100 the follow works

If you require more than one argument separate them with &

I use the following in a batch file to open the book I'm reading to the page I was up to.

The best list of command line args for Adobe Reader I have found is here.
http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/en/acrobat/PDFOpenParameters.pdf

It's for version 7 but all the arguments I tried worked.

As for closing the file, I think you will need to use the SDK, or if you are opening the file from code you could close the file from code once you have finished with it.

Here are some useful command line options for Adobe’s Reader and Acrobat products. If using Acrobat, substitute Acrobat.exe in place of AcroRd32.exe in the command lines. Also, depending on your PATH variable, you’ll probably need to specify the application’s full path.

I should first note that the following are old and/or unofficial. Your mileage may vary. In fact my own mileage has varied.

Open Reader at a specific page of a pdf:

AcroRd32.exe /A "page=page_number" filename.pdf

Open Reader and display a file:

AcroRd32.exe filename.pdf

Open Reader and print a file:

AcroRd32.exe /p filename.pdf

Open Reader, print a file while suppressing the Acrobat print dialog box, then terminate Reader:

AcroRd32.exe /t filename.pdf printername drivername portname
  • printername – The name of your printer.
  • drivername – Your printer driver’s name. Whatever appears in the Driver Used box when you view your printer’s properties.
  • portname – The printer’s port. portname cannot contain any “/” characters; if it does, output is routed to the default port for that printer.

A few more options:
/n Launch a separate instance of the Acrobat application, even if one is currently open.
/s Open Acrobat, suppressing the splash screen.
/o Open Acrobat, suppressing the open file dialog.
/h Open Acrobat in hidden mode.

For the Acrobat Reader exist a special forum. Anyway Acrobat and Reader have the same command line options.

The SDK "Acrobat Developer FAQ", tell us on Page 32 (Miscellaneous Technical Issues):

/n =launch a separte instance Acrobat
/s =supression the splash screen
/o =open Acrobat, supressing Open File dialog
/h =open acrobat in hidden mode

/p [filename] =execute and print
/ t [path,printername,drivername,portname] =execute, print and terminate

Example for \p and \t you can find in the "open with" dialog from window.

Especially the \n parameter works very fine for Acrobat. So you can work in Acrobat and at the same time open all help files - you mean you need - with /n. I missed it in the beginning, like context-sensitive help.

HTH, Reinhard

What's wrong with my answer, so that you don't appreciate this with a short answer? Or did you simple forgot it?

best regards, Reinhard

Is there a "find" command line parameter, so the PDF will open a the first instance of a word?

If it is important to you, may be you can solve it with a VB/JScript and OLE automation.

About Acrobat Automation

Run Acrobat Actions
From Command-Line
Batch Files

AutoBatch™ plug-in interprets this input parameter based on the settings in the original Acrobat batch sequences that it executes:
If an original batch sequence/action is set up to use “Selected Files” as input source then this parameter is going to be used as an alternative file path. Only single file path can be passed as a parameter. If an original batch sequence is using a “Selected Folder” as an input then this parameters is going to be interpreted as an alternative folder path. If batch sequence ("action" in Acrobat X) is using "Ask when sequence is run" for input or output parameters, then it is possible to pass either file or folder as a parameter. Both input and output parameters are expected to be of the same type - either both file paths or both folder paths. These settings can be specified on "Edit Batch Sequence" dialog.

For example, you have created an Acrobat batch sequence MyOCR that executes a “Paper Capture” command on the selected folder “c:\temp”. Now you want to execute this batch sequence from the outside of Adobe® Acrobat Professional® and created OCR.BAT batch file using AutoBatch™ plug-in (“Plug-ins > Create Batch File…”). However, if you want to execute this batch sequence on a different folder, then you have to edit the original MyOCR sequence and specify a different input folder. Alternatively, you can keep using the very same batch file and sequence, but pass a different input folder as a parameter. For example, to execute MyOCR on the folder “c:\data\pdfs” just pass this custom folder path to the OCR.BAT file when launching it:

[c:\] myocr.bat “c:\data\pdfs\”

The above batch file will process all files in “c:\data\pdfs” folder instead of “c:\temp” folder that is specified in the original sequence description.

[c:\] myocr.bat “c:\data\pdfs\” "c:\data\processed files"

The above batch file will process all files in “c:\data\pdfs” folder instead of “c:\temp” folder that is specified in the original sequence description and output processed files into "c:\data\processed files" folder.

[c:\] myocr.bat “c:\data\pdfs\fileA.pdf” "c:\data\processed files\documentA.pdf"

The above batch file will process “c:\data\pdfs\fileA.pdf” file and save it as "c:\data\processed files\documentA.pdf". In Acrobat XI, it is possible to pass only output folder, not the output filename.

Commandline acrobat

What command-line options are available in Adobe Acrobat (not Reader) for modifying documents (Convert, Merge, etc.)?

No, there are no command line parameters for Acrobat for conversion. The only command line parameters that exist are the same for Reader or for Acrobat to open a file or to print a file. They are essentially undocumented and they are unsupported but you can see them here. You will have to look at other PDF applications for this functionality.

Another possibility is that if you have Acrobat installed and you can find an application that will open the XML files and has command line parameters for printing, then you can automate it through the XML application by printing to PDF from that application. That's another avenue you might try to find.

How to Silently Install Adobe Acrobat Reader DC

Launch acrobat reader from Run

Thanks for that got me going, there may be switches that can be sued as well

Try in Run:-

acrord32 /A "page=41&toolbar=0&pagemode=bookmarks&zoom=71" "C:\somewhere\your.pdf"

Reference:

http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/en/acrobat/sdk/pdf/pdf_creation_apis_and_specs/PDFOpenParameters.pdf

For the actual command line or scripts and batch files …

The utility "start" is required as modern acrobat
reader does not appear to be on the path, and start can look up acrord32. ("Run" as you describe seems to do that as well.)

start acrord32 /A "page=17" "D:\LaTeXPortable\LatexUtils\General
Files\dahdah.pdf"

start acrord32 /A "page=41&toolbar=0&pagemode=thumbs"
"D:\LaTeXPortable\LatexUtils\General
Files\dahdah.pdf"

start acrord32 /A "page=41&toolbar=0&pagemode=bookmarks&zoom=71"
"D:\LaTeXPortable\LatexUti
ls\General Files\blahblah.pdf"
