        We have an issue to do with the navigation panel as well.  Our document properties are set for the Initial View to be bookmark panel and page.  If we click off the document and return to it, it opens up with Page panel and page.  Is there anyway to force the program to recognize the document properties?

          What parameter can i use to disable all the hot keys ?  Is there any document that enumerates all these parameters ?  ToolBar, Navpanes, etc...

           

          Thx

            Those properties, as their name implies are ONLY for "Initial View" -

            meaning only when the document opens.

              Hi All,

               

              There is a registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\9.0\RIF\bOpenNextWithTabs that controls displaying of navigation panel buttons.  A value of 1 displays them while a value of 0 hides them.

               

              There is also a registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\9.0\RIF\bOpenNextInReadingMode setting which can disable the toolbars also.

                Your kidding, right?  Why even have a setting that works once.  In all past versions, this setting has worked consistently when going back and forth between two documents.  Only in this latest version does it loose focus and change to Page Panel and Page view when returning to the document.

                  Do these settings work when opening the doc thru the browser ? or only thru the reader ?

                   

                  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\9.0\RIF\bOpenNextWithTabs <-- also, is there a blank before OpenNextWithTabs ?

                   

                  Thx

                    The panels don't change when you switch documents - they never have - since Acrobat 2 when we first implemented the options for showing the various panels.

                     

                    If you believe that something has changed, if you could post a step by step set of procedures to duplicate it - or even better, record your screen doing it.

                     

                    Thanks.

                      Should work for browser as well...

                        Step 1 - Create manual in Word 2007 then create a PDF.

                                       Set initial view in document as Bookmarks Panel and Page

                                       Create interactive manual using Adobe Acrobat 9.0

                                       Create links in manual to the glossary document

                        Step 2 - Create glossary document in Word 2007 then create PDF.

                        Step 3 - Open manual.pdf in Acrobat Reader 9.0

                        Step 4 -  Click on word in manual that will open glossary.pdf document for definition.

                        Step 5 - Click on "Click to return to the previous page view" to return to the manual.pdf.

                        Step 6 - When manual.pdf document returns to your screen, you now have the Pages Panel open instead of the Bookmark Panel.

                         

                        If you stay within Adobe Acrobat Pro you have no problem.  But the document is delivered to a client who only has the Reader 9.0.  This is a feature that has worked in all previous versions of Reader.

                         

                        I can even send you the two document to open in the Reader environment to see what I am talking  about.

                          Do they have the preference for opening in new window set or not?  When you created the link, did you set the "open in new window" flag or not?  Are you viewing this in a browser or stand-alone in Reader?   Mac OS X or Windows?

                            Sorry I left that information off.  This is functionoing in a Windows environment. We do a custom link for the link action, then select "Go to a page view", and we set a destination in the glossary document.  This is viewed stand alone in Reader.  Thank you.

                              Hi Patrick,

                               

                              Thanks very much for the info. I am using the pdf viewer control in a winforms program (AxAcroPdf) which displays PDFs on a big TV screen one-by-one together with other information. Full screen is not an option here because of the other information which must be displayed alongside the pdfs. Currently, my users have to remove the navigation toolbar for each PDF the first time the program cycles through them and they are OK after that, but as you can imagine, it's a pain to have to do that each time they run the program and impossible to do it with large numbers of pdfs.

                               

                              I saw your solution for modifying the registry which I tried, but it didn't affect the control, just the reader program invoked from windows explorer. I noticed there are many such registry entries. I don't want to modify all of them so could you tell me the exact registry entry I need to modify which will affect JUST the AxAcroPdf control?

                               

                              Also, given this use case, do you see any justification to expose this option in the API? I imagine this functionality is already there, since we can use it via the web browser with navpanes=0, so it's really just a matter of providing a method like you have for the toolbar: SetShowNavPanes.

                               

                              Thanks,

                               

                              Mark

                                Even if we were to provide such an API, it would be in a major software release and wouldn't help your existing customers.

                                  Thanks, I certainly appreciate that.

                                   

                                  What about the registry key to change in order to work around the issue? Can

                                  you point me to which one controls the behavior of the AxAcroPDF winforms

                                  control?

                                    Using Adobe Acrobat Professional 7 I made a form with fields which is served from a Tomcat HTTP server.

                                     

                                    When I use a URL like:

                                     

                                    http://192.168.30.106:8080/qforms/pdfs/templates/30799_Appraisal_Form_Template.pdf#navpane s=0

                                     

                                    The form is loaded and the navigation panes do not show.

                                     

                                    When I use a url like:

                                     

                                     

                                    http://192.168.30.106:8080/qforms/pdfs/templates/30799_Appraisal_Form_Template.pdf#FDF=htt p://192.168.30.106:8080/qforms/QFormsServlet?FormID=2MYDVGJWL62794DBL8SG&Action=load

                                    The form loads and the FDF is loaded into it and the navigation panels are visible.

                                     

                                     

                                    But when I use a url like:

                                     

                                    http://192.168.30.106:8080/qforms/pdfs/templates/30799_Appraisal_Form_Template.pdf#navpane s=0&FDF=http://192.168.30.106:8080/qforms/QFormsServlet?FormID=2MYDVGJWL62794DBL8SG&Action =load

                                     

                                    I get the message:

                                     

                                    "This operation is not allowed."

                                     

                                    After that the form loads but the FDF is not loaded into the form and the navigation panels are visible.

                                     

                                    All three URLs conform to to the "PDF Open Parameters" document for Acrobat 7.

                                     

                                    As this thread has clearly established, there does not appear to be any way to hide the navigation panels using Javascrpt.

                                     

                                    As far as I can see what I have described above is a bug. Is there a fix or a workaround?

                                     

                                    thanks,

                                      Two things

                                       

                                      1) Acrobat 7 is no longer supported by Adobe, so we can't help you with that specific product.  But we'll certainly see if the same problem exists in currently supports versions (8 and later).

                                       

                                      2) The second and third URLs that you posted are exactly the same.  What do you believe the difference is - or was it a typo?

                                        If you look closely at the second and third URLs you will see that one contains navpanes=0 and the other does not.


                                        Although I'm using Acrobat 7 the problems appear when the pdf is loaded by whatever version of the Reader is being used by the browser that downloads it. In my case this is Google Chrome 4, FireFox 2 or IE 6 all with recent Acrobat readers.

                                         

                                        Thanks,

                                          So you are saying that Acrobat/Reader 8 and 9 also report that error message?

                                            I think so. How do I tell which Reader version is running? I'm looking

                                            at it now but don't see an About option anywhere.

                                             

                                            This is currently a lesser issue for me than the second item I added to

                                            the forum. How do you get a javascript to execute after an FDF is loaded?

                                             

                                            How do I trap the External/Exec event mention in the PDF JavaScript

                                            documentation?

                                             

                                            Or is there another way to do that?

                                             

                                            The problem is that then the PDF opens I can call a Javascript. But that

                                            happens before the FDF is loaded. After loading there are new values in

                                            the fields. I need to run a Javascript that highlights those fields that

                                            still need to be filled in.

                                             

                                            thanks,

                                              You put the JavaScript in the FDF - details in the FDF documentation.  There is a "before load" and an "after load" area.

                                               

                                              What external/exec event?

                                                Thanks. I found that but also found that Adobe regard this as a security

                                                threat and so deliver the new Readers with that that option turned off.

                                                Our users are not the sort of folks that can handle that sort of

                                                boss does.

                                                 

                                                What external/exec event?

                                                 

                                                See the manual Adobe Acrobat 7.0.5 Acrobat JavaScript Scripting

                                                External/Exec

                                                This event is the result of an external access, for example, through

                                                OLE, AppleScript, or loading an FDF.

                                                This event does not listen to the rc return code.

                                                 

                                                thanks,

                                                    thanks for taking the time to send this reply. It won't work for

                                                    non-Windows Acrobat Reader scenarios, which is what I need.

                                                     

                                                    Acrobat has a url parameter navpanes=0. But for whatever reason that

                                                    parameter is not allowed if the url also conrtains an fdf parameter,

                                                    which again, is what I need.

                                                    cheers,

                                                      Try whether this works for Acrobat 7.0 also.

                                                        I am interested in a similar issue. I would like to make sure that the pdfs my system generates will open with the Page navigator hidden. The reason being that my pages will be covered with an overlay which is removed based on a user action. If the Page thumbnails are rendered before the overlay is removed then they will always show just the overlay. There is no guarantee that the user wont open the Page navigator before hiding the overlay but I'd like to implement it this way as a convenience.

                                                         

                                                        Is there a setting within the PDF which will make it open with a hidden Page navigator?

                                                         

                                                        Thanks

                                                          If you don't set them to open with the page panel open, it won't. 

                                                           

                                                          HOWEVER, you should know that Acrobat/Reader dynamically generate the page panel contents from the actual pages - so that whatever overlays, etc. you have will also be reflected in the panel.

                                                            Did you try the solution mentioned in my post dated Feb 19, 2010.

                                                                  Put the PDF ActiveX component on a TPanel component. Then shift its left position to -42 pixels, and make it 42 pixels wider than the panel. This works perfectly on my computer, but may be different on other end user configurations. Does anyone know how I'd figure the width of the ubiquitous Adobe toolbar on the left? - Jeff

                                                                    What I am needing is quite similar.

                                                                    Hide the Navigation panel while displaying a PDF in VB6.

                                                                    I can do this manually, I can in an activate event set focus to the pdf and force key press of Ctrl+H.

                                                                    this assumes that the Navigation is already on.

                                                                    I need a way to hide the panel as the pdf I am showing is an attempt to make a thumbnail of the PDF.

                                                                    If the user double clicks, they can see the full screen with navigation and all.

                                                                    I am showing several PDF's at a glance.

                                                                    If there were another way without having to use the AcroPDF.dll then I am open to suggestions.

                                                                        1. I HATE, HATE, HATE with all the venom I can summon into my heart the INCESSANT, REAL-ESTATE-CHISELING, DISTRACTING navigation pane and its infuriating insistence on reappearing and reappearing and reappearing until you're ready to pound the desk with your fist. I don't like distractions. I don't dangle a light bulb off the corner of my TV or play paddycake with a half-inch-wide "pane" when I read a book. I simply focus on the pages, and nothing else. As I would like to do in Acrobat.

                                                                         

                                                                        2. The removal methods suggested by Adobe employees and others in the first half of this thread never worked for me. They only succeeded in causing my documents to appear buggily. Maximizing, say, a small Acrobat window would work--but the document you were viewing would retain its small dimensions, even if it too was maximized. Who am I, Clint Eastwood driving a bus in "Gauntlet" and looking through a slit as I roll through the streets? That's who I felt I was until I hit F4 twice to reset the window to display the document to its borders.

                                                                         

                                                                        I tried reinstalling Acrobat, but the window settings prevailed, surely through the registry somehow. Which brings up a third question: Why, when I have revoked consent for your product to even be on my hard drive (presumably the installation agreement doesn't say "you agree to have our stuff installed after you uninstall it"), does my registry remain bloated with litter from it?

                                                                         

                                                                        And for a fourth thing, the removal of multi-document interface in 9 was the other worst thing that Adobe did. I can *NOT* stand having 580 windows open when I'm managing a workload.

                                                                        A.

                                                                         

                                                                        CLUE.

                                                                              Do you udnerstand or not?

                                                                              Add an option to hide idiotic sidebar.  Don't become Apple#2.

                                                                                Your people sit on their a$$es and devise new ways to generate revenues by "revamping" a workign application, moving menus & stuff around and adding kraap features to justify your salaries, that's it - it is about constantly inventing weays to SELL more Acrobat.

                                                                                I want sidebar disableable or I will hack it, and as I said I am an Engineer, I will hack to kill sidebar, thanks for makign my life harder, you Leonard ******** Rosenberg.

                                                                                It's fixated in "Silverish" color by your idiot coder.  Since when it stopped disrespecting user's Windows setting and enforce its own color?  Even if you don't want to read customers Windows colorshceme as was usual prior to AcrobatX, at least gives us ability to change that Canvas color.

                                                                                Referring to Background color when you zoom out of PDF object, you see that object upon "backdrop/background" which graphicxpros call "Canvas".

                                                                                Can you understand that breakign down this function is retarded?

                                                                                What kind of progress is that in Acrobat X?  You want us to stick with your eye-sore silversih background ?!?>!  ANd not able to change? ?  AND REFUSE TO COMPLY WITH WINDOWS SYSTEMWIDE COLOR - IN MY CASE DESKTOP & ALL WINDOWS USE BLACK BACKGROUND, YES I WANT BLACK, DO YOU GET THE IDEA/??  I wish I coulduse stronger language $#$@U&&^$

                                                                                  "Millions of satisfied" customers don't have determination to complain nor are many professionals.  We're professionals, I am very particular abou tmy settings, I WORK on computers, not playign games "pictures & videos" kraap.  I agree w/OP poster that sidebar is a dog, and YOu are an IDIOT.

                                                                                  you're an Idiot Adobe employee.
