Manage Acrobat Plug-Ins with Profiles on Windows

If you use Acrobat for several purposes, create several profiles.

If you use Acrobat for many different tasks, you probably need different plug-ins at different times. If you use third-party or custom plug-ins [Hack #97] , it can become essential to distinguish the “production workflow” Acrobat from the “plug-in beta testing” Acrobat from the “on-screen reading” Acrobat. We can do that.

In the same directory as your plug_ins folder [Hack #4] , create one folder for each profile, naming it like this: plug_ins.profile_name. For example, a production profile might have the folder name plug_ins.production. Copy the desired plug-ins into each profile folder; you can copy a plug-in into one or more folders. The plug_ins folder will be your default profile.
