    To enable single-key shortcuts, select the Use Single-Key Accelerators To Access Tools option in General preferences.
    Use K to repeat the last stamp

    You are right. I never notice that. I will try to improve the stamp changing the image.

    Just wanted to say thank you for this. I spent over an hour online looking for a way to add circled red stamps online for adobe pdf reader in order to balloon drawings and this forum was my savior. Thank you again.

    count++;
    event.value = count
    event.source.source.info.StampCount = count;
    }

    I don't know if this thread is dead or not, but I'm getting extremely frustrated trying to modify a few "simple" things to suit my needs. I am using the stamp titled "AutoRed" as a starting point because it is very close to my needs. I need a red bubble that can include three-digit integers, has an auto-number feature, and can be "reset" to another value. AutoRed does all of those things. A few simple things I want to change are as follows,
    1. I want a transparent background so the bubble doesn't ever occlude the contents of the PDF behind it.
    2. I want the stamps to be named "Bubble - Auto" and "Bubble - Manual" and to be located in a new "Inspection" category instead of "Dynamic".
    The problem is that changing LITERALLY ANYTHING renders the stamp unusable. If I rename it using the 'manage stamps' dialog, the script for that particular stamp just disappears from the editor and I can't add it back. To make things even more fun, the stamp automatically saves as soon as you do this so you have to delete it and restore a new version from a backup to try again. Can anyone shed some light on what I am doing wrong, or how I can simply rename the stamps without ruining them? I can worry about the transparent background once I have the Javascript under control.

    First, thank you!

    How did you edit the code?
    Do you know if there's a way to keep a stamp selected? I have to select the stamp again each time I make another bubble.

    Thank you.

    How many questions!
    I'll try to answer to everything

    I edited the code using Adobe Acrobat. Note that it was impossible using Acrobat Reader.
    I changed job some years ago and in my previus job I had Adobe Acrobat, now I have only Acrobat DC basic (equal to the old Acrobat Reader). Therefore I cannot make any more change to the file.

    Regarding how to edit the code, the font, the dimensions, or the image, I think it is well explained here: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/create-custom-dynamicstamp.html

    @ Aw Yoke Yeen
    You do not need to add the code. I attached the updated file in my old post.
    I wrote the code for information only.

    Hi guys.
    Eventually I was able to find a version of Acrobat that had the Prepare Form Tool. Therefore I made a new stamp. Here are the characteristics:
    • The file name is Balloon, but you can change it. It is the only thing you can change without problems.
    • The background is transparent
    • The oval and the text is red
    • The font is Helvetica 10 pt
    • It can manage up to 3 digit
    • The Category is Inspection
    • The stamps’ names are “Ballon - Auto” and “Balloon - Manual”.
    • It works on Acrobat Reader (it saves the last Balloon number on a global variable and not on on the metadata of the pdf file)

    How to install?

    Make sure Acrobat is closed
    Copy Balloon.pdf in: “C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat Reader DC\Reader\plug_ins\Annotations\Stamps\ENU”
    Note that in addition to the ENU folder there may be others for other languages. Copy the file in the folder of the language that you are using.
    Open the file you want to bubble
    Choose the Stamp Tool
    Inside the Inspection category you’ll find the two stamps Auto and Manual
    Click on the drawing where you want your bubble
    For the Manual, a dialog box will pop up; put the number you want in the circle and click Ok
    For the Auto, just use it. It start its count from the last stamp used (Manual or Auto doesn’t matter)

    To enable single-key shortcuts, select the Use Single-Key Accelerators To Access Tools option in General preferences (Ctrl+K)
    Use K to repeat the last stamp


    NOTES
    Here is the new java code. The only differences are the stamp names. Because every time you create a new stamp, it has his unique name (for example "#gfz3xrpWL4Fa777c2BRALA") and it affects the code.

    BALLOON - AUTO

    if(event.source.forReal && (event.source.stampName == "#gfz3xrpWL4Fa777c2BRALA"))
    {
    if (global.stampCounter == null) {
    global.stampCounter = 1;
    } else global.stampCounter++;
    var count = global.stampCounter
    event.value = count
    }

    BALLOON - MANUAL

    if(event.source.forReal && (event.source.stampName == "#4GcLa7TyX3QVMwbtthKATD"))
    {
    var count = app.response("Enter the desired number.")
    event.value = count
    global.stampCounter = count
    }

    Here a squared version.

    All the characteristics are the same, but with an important feature. You can use the standard Acrobat Comments (Helvetica, 10 pt, red edge, transparent background) and the aspect is the same of this stamp. I find it useful when I have to mark the same dimension several times (for example 16 x ø6). In this case I use a comment [1 - 16] and for the next dimensions the stamp. Take a look to the example.pdf

    Enjoy

    As a great improvement add a parametrized size of a stamp would be great. This one is a little bit too big for me so I need to rescale each.
