Lesson 9. Adding Buttons > Determining the opening display of a document

Determining the opening display of a document

In some cases, you may want to control how a particular document displays when it is opened. For example, you may want the document to open in Full Screen mode or to a specific page other than the first page. You can set these preferences easily using the Open Info dialog box.

1.
If Visit1.pdf is not already open, choose File > Open, select Visit1.pdf in the Lesson09 folder, and click Open.

2.
Choose File > Document Info > Open.

The Open Info dialog box appears. This dialog box contains a number of display options for the current document.

For information on all the options available in the Open Info dialog box, see "Defining opening views" in Chapter 13 of the online Adobe Acrobat User Guide.

3.
Under Window Options, select Open in Full Screen Mode, and click OK.



4.
Choose File > Save As, rename the file Visit2.pdf, and save it in the Lesson09 folder.

5.
Choose File > Close to close the file.

6.
Choose File > Open, and reopen Visit2.pdf in the Lesson09 folder.

Notice how the document opened in Full Screen mode, hiding the menu, command, tool, and status bars.

7.
Press Enter or Return to progress through the document.

You can use Full Screen mode for online presentations or just to enhance the display of a document on-screen.

8.
Press Esc to exit Full Screen mode.

9.
Choose File > Close to close the file.

In this lesson, you learned how to add navigational aids, execute menu items, and show and hide fields using buttons. Buttons add a new dimension to the level of interactivity that you can use in your PDF documents. As you experiment further with buttons, you'll find new ways to use them to enhance your documents.
