    I'm currently working on updating our custome menu and I would like to
    beable to open our drafting manual from within autocad. it's currently in
    PDF format.

    so here is what I want to beable to do. click on a button or select the
    command from the pull-down and have adobe acrobat open our cad manual.

    Is this possible and if so can someone tell me how to do it?

    Thanks
    Dylan

    ;here's an example with hardcoded paths
    ;;; you could make much better by eliminating the hard code
    ;;; or just substitute your paths
    ;;; i'm just too lazy to make it a good function cause this is all i need.

    (defun C:pDF( / AppLocation Title DocLocation defaultLocation)
    (setq AppLocation "E:\\PROGRAM FILES\\ADOBE\\ACROBAT
    5.0\\READER\\ACRORD32.EXE" );set your location or do findfile or/????
    (setq title "Select PDF file to Open")
    (setq defaultLocation "C:\\0\\0INFO\\LISPINFO\\");set your location or
    offer prompt
    (setq DocLocation (Getfiled title defaultLocation "pdf" 0))
    (startAPP AppLocation DocLocation)
    )
