I'm attempting to create an interactive PDF portfolio with links from the homepage to gallery pages and projects etc, but it seems useless if I can't stop the PDF pages from scrolling? Can anyone help?
I have InDesign CS5.5 and Adobe Acrobat Pro.
When exporting from InDesign to Adobe PDF (Interactive), you can set the page view to Fit Page. Normally in Acrobat/Reader, you can't stop a reader from changing the view and scrolling the page if they choose. Is that what you're trying to prevent?
You could open the pages in Full Screen view, another option in Page View, where scrolling is not an option.
scrolling through the pages
There is nothing you can do to prevent a viewer from navigating on their own through a PDF. One method would be to have the PDF open in Full Screen mode, this hides the navigation tab. But a viewer can use their arrow keys to go page to page, ignoring the links within the PDF. And the viewer can hit the esc key to go back to normal view. Another option would be to use a swf export, indstead of pdf, but seriously depends on how you plan to distribute this portfolio.
