    Take what I said with a grain of salt. I'm mostly playing devil's advocate just to point out another view. I really do like the looks of what you've done.

    type 1 link1 : I really like this too. Great job whoever did it. Though they didn't take my route to achieve those results. I have to admit I like the overall piece.

    I would have done it...

    I See. I've been in graphic design for more than five years but was an artist before that. Guess I forgot about that.

    I like the looks. I'm a big fan of infographics when they're done well and actually communicate information efficiently and effectively.

    However...

  • .pdf files to disk

    Hi there!

    I'm not sure if I have come to the right place. But I need to ask a question and hopefully someone will be able to help me out!

    I have a .pdf file that I would like to put on a cd to send to a few people via regular mail. I was wondering if there is any way I can create the disk so that when they place it in their computer drive, it will open automatically on their screen to be read - rather than having to click the icon to open it. The original document was created in a word processing program then converted to a .pdf file.

    I received a cd one time that had a powerpoint presentation on it and once I placed it in my computer drive, the presentation ran automatically with narration embedded. I liked the way it was presented and was hoping I could do something similar.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

    I don't know about the process to do this but I deliberately disable AutoMount because of disks like this. I don't want anything running that I haven't told to run. I get incredibly pissed when someone figures out how to go around the AutoMount. There is a way using Acrobat to do it, full screen view autoplay, but I've never done it.

    I'm sure someone will be able to help you with the programming part.

      I don't like Auto Mount either. Maybe there's a way you could make it opt-in instead? Like something comes up that asks if you want to run the presentation now?

      Another thing you could do (and I don't know how to do this, but I know there's a way) so that when the CD mounts, the CD window opens up, and the icon for the PDF is the only thing visible in the disk window, that way they can choose whether to run it or not. Kind of like the way installer disks do it.

        I agree with both of the above^^...

        Nonetheless, InstallShield Expo Autoplay is what you're looking for (and don't ask me why they use such an awful looking example!!).
