Re: PDF file menu options are not getting identified

As I understand, you are not an Adobe employee, therefore Adobe Reader is a third party application for you and you can't get it recompiled with debug info.

 

In this case you have to find workarounds for your problem. For instance, use keyboard shortcuts, main menu items, image recognition, etc.

Hi Gennadiy ,

 

Thanks for ur reply.

 

I am using keybpoard short cuts for opening the PDF file from reader and Making some changes.How ever I don't know what is the short cut for adding Comments in PDF file.

 

Once we add comments ,Same file needs to be checked in and save into share point.

 

I can be able to save using Cntl+S short cut but don't know how do check in by navigating File-->SharePoint-->Check in

 

Help can be appreciated.

I don't have experience in using Adobe Reader, yet I don't have it installed. However, usually such applications allow to customize your toolbars/keyboard shortcuts (try right-click on any toolbar and search for Customize menu item).

BTW, another possible solution is using another application (e.g. Foxit Reader) to perform the actions with the file.

Then probably the only option left is using Image-Based Testing
