Dear Russ,

There has been quite a bit of research into this and talk here on the
list, but no one solution across different Os's due to some changes
made by Adobe over the years.

You may need to upgrade you version of Tw, and allow system commands
to run for scripting (Edit/Preferences/Scripting). And what version
number of Acrobat Reader are you using  please - and is it 32/64?

Are you comfortable with scripting TeXworks? - if not just say and
I'll see if something can be thrown together, if no one else has done
it already.
