I tried in community and API guide there are options given only to create macro and check options are enabled or not. but it is no macro given to enable the properties and also it is given as read and write in API guide.... IS there anyone faced this issue

What API call are you using?  Both CreateDocBookmark and CreateUserBookmark have parameters to specify properties.

Hi Rob,

Thanks for your response.

I was trying with both CreateUserBookmark and CreateDocBookmark but not able to find the way to inlcude the parameters Layout state included, Selections excluded, Input field values are included,Applied top of current selections,Pop-up message, Bookmark info.

It would be very helpful if you could provide the solution.


I haven't tried it myself, but the API doc show the parms -- not in the example, but on the "Automation Members" page.




Do you know how should be the syntax of a macro to create a bookmark with the following requirements?

CreateDocumentBookmark (shared with other users),
Label Bookmark using the available/selected "PracticeID" (field),
I want to apply only the PracticeID selection and clear all the other selections,

And I need to incorporate the input fields.


If a bookmark is already created and labeled with the specific "PracticeID", replace the bookmark with the new values instead of creating another one with the same label.

Plus 2: set bookmarks as hidden.

Thank you.
