Here’s a simple tip that could make a huge difference in your ability to debug your scripts in Designer:
Anyone who has attempted to debug their script(s) in Acrobat knows that it’s a painful thing to do. Unfortunately, many only know about
which gets the job done but not without some headaches and, in certain cases, RSI in your index finger clicking through all those message boxes! The other problem is that showing a message box can cause differences in the form’s behaviour, especially if you’re trying to debug a script which is setting focus to an object on your form.
The ability to debug scripts is something we know needs serious attention in Designer and trust me, we’ve talked about it and we have plans to address these issues but I can’t speak about anything definite at this time.
