Add field with javascript when printed with novaPDF

Postby cgoodenough » Sun Jan 10, 2016 3:27 am

What I want to do is create a profile that will put a watermark and a time stamp on each page of a document. The catch is that I want the time stamp to show the time in the future when the document is printed (to the actual printer) rather than when the document was created (via printing to novaPDF printer). I can do this in Acrobat DC by adding a field with javascript in it. Can I do such a thing with novaPDF pro?

Thanks in advance for any ideas!

PS I don't actually care how this gets done. In other words, I am not determined that it has to be a field with javascript, that's just how I managed it in Acrobat.

With novaPDF you can add timestamps as watermarks and use macros such as the TIME when the PDF was created. However you cannot put a date in the future when the document is actually printed to the physical printer, since that's not done via novaPDF (the actual printing is done via Reader).
