    Depends on what you mean by support. I can open/close/get title of pdf. Acrobat reader Versions 6 and lower versions are supported by RFT 6.xx and versions 7 and 8 are supported by RFT 7+. Versions 7 and 8 of Acrobat map as a new object type, but documentation is tough to find.

    If your question about the actual data within the pdf, well i would love to know that too

    I was looking to do some really basic work here and ended up using tab keys to navigate the screen (in my case a PDF served up within a browser window but I reckon you can get at least that much with just the application).

    I got the message 'Ignoring the click on pdf document in document mode setting' when interacting with the PDF with the mouse but giving the document focus and then tabbing through seemed to work cleanly enough. In our case we then saved these in the script & I wrote a small Java application that checked for the expected keywords as a batch (using itextpdf, no reason that couldn't have been added to the actual script) and they were manually checked for visual correctness (not something I thought was even worth trying to automate).

    I couldn't get much more than this really but it saved a lot of repetitive entry into the PDF's & ensured specific text & derived values was being checked for making visual verification a lot easier (really just looking at the shape/flow of the page) so was probably worthwhile doing.

    Code heavy workaround really but it got us just what we needed. What is your particular scenario?
