TIP 99: Editing Actions

Using buttons and links is a rather pointless exercise unless something happens when the user clicks the object. In Tips 96 and 97, we briefly mentioned actions when we discussed building links or buttons. In this tip, you learn about editing actions. By the way, actions are also used with bookmarks, which are described in the following chapter.

Play a Sound

One of the actions in the example in this tip is the Play a sound action. Notice in Figure 99 that there is no file listed along with the name of the action in the Action dialog. Acrobat embeds the sound in the PDF document in a format that plays in both Windows and Mac.

Figure 99. Select the name of the action on the Actions tab to edit or change it.
