This is not only to increase the interest of the page, but also, more importantly, it can enhance the visual appeal of PDF documents, provide supplementary information and enhance the interactive ability of documents, so as to bring convenience for demonstration and reading

acrobat software developed by adobe is the best tool for PDF files. In particular, acrobat 5.0 provides a variety of interactive features. Users can increase the interest of the page by adding interactive buttons and displaying or hiding graphics; You can also add movies and sound clips to PDF documents and set them as actions to play when links, bookmarks or buttons are activated; You can also create page actions performed when opening or closing documents, etc. This article will introduce in detail how to use acrobat 5.0 software to batch and quickly add the most common interactive functions to PDF documents - adding various interactive buttons on the page

let's take a look at the help file of acrobat 5.0 first. We can see that in its help page, in addition to providing a large number of buttons for cross indexing, the navigation bar is set at the top and bottom of the document, such as "use help", "index", "previous page", "next page" and other hyperlinks. These hyperlinks can be realized through the "link tool" button in acrobat 5.0 software, but this method can only be used to set individual interactive buttons, which is not suitable for batch production. Then, in a PDF document containing hundreds of pages, how to set the navigation bar that exists on each page and ensure its consistent location and style? To solve this problem, we need to use the powerful form tool provided by acrobat 5.0, which can batch and quickly add interactive buttons to PDF documents

1. Select the "form tool" button, drag the cross pointer, and the system will automatically pop up the "field properties" dialog box

2. Enter a name in the "name" text box in the "domain properties" dialog box (Note: this operation must be carried out, or you can add simple descriptive text to the "brief description" text box as needed). Then select the form type from the type drop-down menu (similar to HTML forms)

in the "field properties" dialog box, you can also set the relevant options of the form as needed

in the "appearance" tab, you can set the form outline color, background color, width and style of the outline

in the "highlight" drop-down menu of "options", you must not rush or install problems to specify the display effect of the button when you click, and you can choose options such as reverse color, none, border, dimming, etc. If you want to change the appearance of the button when interacting with the mouse, you can also set the button state from the button appearance display condition list in options

the button layout can be set in "options", and there are 6 layout modes to choose from. As for the source of icons, you can use any file format that acrobat can display to generate button icons, including PDF, BMP, JPE, G and GIF files that have comprehensively revised the original GB8624 (1) 997 version in China

3. Set the action type

with acrobat 5.0, you can add special effects to PDF documents when selecting form fields, bookmarks and links, or when viewing pages and forms, such as jumping to different positions in the document, playing video and sound clips, or executing commands from menus

set button or other form field actions in the "action" tab of the "field properties" dialog box. First, select a mouse action in the "when this happens" list box, and then click the "add" button. The "add action" dialog box pops up. Click the "type" drop-down menu, select an action, and then click the "set action" button

take the action setting of the "back" button as an example. After creating the button, in the "action" tab of the "domain properties" dialog box, select the option of "mouse release" in the drop-down menu of "when this happens", click the "add" button, select the option of "executing the menu item of top 3 3D printing start-up companies landing in Zibo" in the drop-down menu of "type" of button action, and click the "menu item" button, The menu item selection dialog box pops up. In the dialog box, select "skip to previous view" in "document", and click "OK" to complete the action setting. For other buttons, such as "previous page", "next page" and so on, you can set them according to this method

4. Copy form fields. Users can copy form fields on the same page or between a group of pages by selecting "tools/forms/fields/copy", and the system pops up the "copy fields" dialog box. Select the "all" option or type the page range where the form field needs to be copied, and then click the "OK" button
