Adding a text-only button that links to the World Wide Web

As you have seen, buttons do not have to have icons—they can have no appearance or consist only of a text display. In this part of the lesson, you'll add a text-only button that links to the World Wide Web.

1.
Scroll down to view the bottom part of the campgrounds page.

2.
Select the form tool ().

3.
Drag to draw a rectangular box along the bottom edge of the page, as shown in the following illustration.



4.
For Name, type URL, and for Type, choose Button.

5.
Click the Options tab.

6.
For Highlight, choose None, and for Layout, choose Text only.

7.
Under Button Face Attributes, for Text, type Mount Rainier Web Site.

You'll give this button a beveled, gray appearance.

8.
Click the Appearance Tab.

9.
Under Border, select Border Color and Background Color. Click the appropriate color box to access the system palette and set the Border Color to light gray and the Background Color to light gray.

10.
For Width, choose Thin, and for Style, choose Beveled.

11.
Under Text, for Font, choose a font (we used Helvetica Bold). For Size, choose 12. The text color should not be light gray. If needed, click the appropriate color box to access the system palette and choose a color other than light gray.

12.
Follow the instructions for your computer platform:

  • In Windows, under Common Properties, for Form Field, choose Visible but doesn't print.

  • In Mac OS, for Visibility, choose Shows on screen, hidden when printed.



13.
Click the Actions tab.

14.
Select Mouse Up, and click Add.

15.
For Type, choose World Wide Web Link. Then click Edit URL.

16.
Type a URL for the destination of the link in the URL text box (we used http://www.adobe.com), and click OK.

17.
Click Set Action. Then click OK.

18.
Select the hand tool (), and click your new button. If you have a connection to the Internet, you can connect to the Web site.

19.
In Acrobat, choose File > Save As, make sure that Optimize is selected, and save Camping.pdf in the Lesson09 folder. Click Yes (Windows) or Replace (Mac OS) to confirm replacing the file.

20.
Choose File > Close to close the campgrounds page.
