TIP 131: Creating a Presentation with Page Transitions

One of the strengths of presentation software is the ability to display content and control movement through a document. Using page transitions and page view settings, you can create a presentation of a PDF document in Acrobat. The material you use for a presentation can come from a number of sources. You can use files from a range of programs converted to a PDF (see tips in Chapter 3 for conversion information for various types of source materials), or assemble a binder using any number of file types (described in Chapter 4). If you use documents converted from Microsoft PowerPoint presentations (Windows), the transitions are preserved. Bullet fly-in animations are also transferred to the PDF document.

Varying Effects

Instead of applying the same transition throughout your presentation, you can quickly choose individual pages or groups of pages and apply a different effect to each group. Select the pages using the page thumbnail view in the Pages panel (Shift-click to select a group; Ctrl-click /Command-click to select pages in different locations in the document). From the Options menu, choose Set Page Transitions to open the Set Transitions dialog.

Use different transitions to identify different segments of a document. For example, I use a PDF presentation as a resume/portfolio. The document contains several pages of artwork samples. To differentiate the artwork from other elements of the document, the artwork pages use a different transition than the rest of the document.
