Start PDF Tools from external application w/parameters

Post by cajuba » Fri Jun 24, 2016 6:58 pm

Hello,

is there a way to start PDF Tools from an external application adding parameters to the start sequence ( like ...\PDFXTOOLS.exe {CustomTool} {Scource File}) e.g. to run a custom tool or to open a source file or to run a custom tool with a designated source file?

Regards,
cajuba

Hi cajuba,

Thanks for the post - currently, I'm afraid not. No command line options have been added to PDF-Tools yet, but should be within the next few builds.

Thanks,

Hi Cajuba.
( like ...\PDFXTOOLS.exe {CustomTool} {Scource File})
This feature will be added to the next upcoming build. Please wait.
