    Your best bet is to create a PDF Portfolio. Look in Acrobat Help about creating and viewing PDF Portfolios.

    There are essentially two ways to do this:

     

    1) To create a portfolio as already stated above by an MVP; or

    2) Combine the files into one big pdf file.

     

    Click on this picture to do either of the two ways:

    You get to this feature by going to:

     

    File > Combine

     

    Good luck and have a wonderful weekend.

    The original question is about a FLIP PAGE document.

     

    PDF files do not and cannot support visual page-flipping. That is solely a feature of Flash-based eBooks. There are online services which can convert/combine documents into a Web-based catalogue, but the end result is always presented in Flash. Similarly if you choose the 'page curl' option when exporting from InDesign, it creates the document content as a SWF file not a PDF.

    Dave is correct. I missed the reference to "flip page."

     

    However, the use of Flash has been decreasing greatly, and won't work when viewed on iOS mobile devices or new Android mobile devices so you might want to avoid it these days.  In addition, many users refuse to install Flash for security reasons.

    I entirely agree - the days of SWF-based page flip documents are over. They were a fun gimmick when consumers could be relied on to have Flash Player installed, but with the proliferation of mobile devices that don't suppport Flash (but do happily support PDF) and the increasing numbers of desktop users who uninstall it, they no longer make commercial sense.

     

    PDF, on the other hand, is the perfect choice for a catalogue - pages retain the exact design intended, they can be accessed offline, there are reading apps for every platform, documents can be fully-indexed and accessible to screenreaders, they can reflow for small devices and can be encrypted for protection of content.

    These forums are for the discussion of Adobe software and associated technoligies, and this forum in particular is about PDF files. Spam posts promoting online page-flip software vendors are not permitted, and have been deleted from this topic.

     

    As this topic has been answered, it is now locked.
