This solution also works in 10x as well – user99580 Sep 29 '11 at 0:38
Unfortunately, while it may perhaps work in the versions mentioned, it does nothing in version 11, so I moved from Adobe to Foxit where it works just fine. – prl77 Jun 2 '15 at 21:39
@prl77, it worked just fine for me in 11. – Jon49 Jun 29 '15 at 19:52
