    Or not be inclined to hire you, knowing what you look like. Discrimination based on looks is illegal but why tempt fate?

    It's called distressing, and there are countless ways to do it, most involve using a texture to make a selection or mask to delete or hide part of the image so it looks worn.

    I think is very good, simple, organized, user friendly, variety of design.

    Optional suggestions, you could add a picture of yourself somewhere. This is not mandatory but, there is a psicological...

    Also, why did you lift your answer directly from this article? You could at least post a link so people can read the entire article. http://www.articlesbase.com/internet...les/custom-pri...

  • PDF: Entire page is a link to next page...how do I turn this off?

    I have setup buttons on the page to go back and forth. I do not want the customer to be able to click on the page (anywhere) and have it go to the next page. Is there a way to turn this function off without turning the other links on the page off? Seems to only be effective in "full screen" mode. Please help!! Thanks!!!

    When I die, I have a free ride to Heaven! I will have alreadydone my time in Hell...at the local printshop!!

    Which version of Acrobat are you in? I'm in 5 and I don't automatically get a 'next page' when in fullscreen. Could there be a page action inside the PDF you're working with that's been coded to do this? Or are you talking about Fullscreen with the menu showing? That's handled by the DocumentProperties/Open Options settings. You can shut off the menu, the tolbars, and the Window Controls from there. Unless they know the F keys to bring them back the reader is left clicking hopelessly like some pre-conditioned pigeon escaped from a Skinner box.

    Just as an aside, you can create an empty form field button with Visibility on and place it above the links you want to 'disconnect' but below your page turning ones.

      I am working with Version 6. When you click anywhere on the page it goes to the next page. I was hoping to shut this off so they have to use the buttons to move from page to page or section to section. It's not a huge problem but just was something I was hoping I could shut off.

      My 27 years of wisdom has revealed... children=cat food, printshops=hell and people suck!
      Guess I know it all now?!

        In version 5's Preferences, under Full Screen, there's navigation switches on top including one that says, "Advance on any click". I presume the same thing is going on with Acr6, only.... I don't know how you can get a PDF to automatically shut this off when it launches. Hmmm.

        Something to investigate though. Thanks.

        Hold on, here it is. You create a PageAction on PageOpen for the page you want to shut this off on, and select JavaScript, and add this line (or append it, if you already have an action):

        app.fs.clickAdvances=false;

        ==============================

        This shuts off that feature. (But NOT, the PageDown key, btw).

        It works in Acrobat 5 too.
