Hi Guys,
My Privilaged / Protetected JavaScript SaveAs function works perfectly in AcrobatPro.
The problem is that it will start to run in Reader, but the SaveAs won't execute.
Ideas?

The Best Answer

Within Acrobat Pro I run the following code within the console, indicating
the conversion to text and tiff is allowed in Acrobat Pro.
How can I confirm the conversion to text and tiff allowed in Reader?  How
to get to the Reader console?
Here's the code:
for ( var i = 0; i < app.fromPDFConverters.length; i++)
console.println(app.fromPDFConverters[i]);
And here's the results:
