    Hi,

    Does anybody here know how I could track someone opening a PDF file? It wont be sent by email neither downloaded. I know it must be possible as someone sent me an example PDF that tracked when I opened it as well as the IP and DID NOT show me a security warning that the document will connect to the internet.

    I found that you can do certain things with adobe acrobat and javascript but haven't found a solution. All I got so far is to connect to a URL but with a warning so that is not feasible.

    Thanks guys
