Getting started

In this lesson, you'll work on a multimedia tour of the Freedom Trail, a National Park that consists of a collection of historic locations in Boston, Massachusetts. The tour visits eight locations, and each location has its own separate page to which you will add a multimedia element, such as a sound or movie file. You will control the sounds, movies, and animations using buttons and page actions. You will also add navigational buttons for viewers to use to easily move through the document, as it will be presented in the full screen viewing mode, which hides the menus and palettes.

Start Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Professional.

To see what the finished file looks like, navigate to the Lesson12 folder and open the file Freedom_Trail_end.pdf. Your menu bars will be hidden when you open this file because it includes instructions to open in Full Screen mode. Use the navigational buttons in the document to move through each page. Notice the buttons, sounds, movies, and animations in the document.

When you have finished examining the completed PDF file, choose Ctrl+L (Windows) or Command+L (Mac OS) to return to a view that shows all your menus. You can keep this file open for reference while you work on the exercise, or you can close the file by choosing File > Close.

You can also use the Esc key to leave the full screen mode, but this option can be disabled in the Full Screen section of Acrobat's Preferences.

Choose File > Open and choose the file Freedom_Trail_start.pdf in the Lesson12 folder.
