I work at a center for public service and we're trying to make our service handbook more user friendly. However, we're not experts when it comes to using Adobe Acrobat X Pro.
Instead of having to scroll through the many pages of the handbook, we would like to implement a "more/less" function or a truncation of text. Are we able to do this for a PDF?
It looks something similar to this: http://henrik.nyh.se/examples/truncator/
At this point however, we're not sure if it's even possible to implement this function into a PDF. Is it possible or are we just wasting our time trying to find a way to do it?
Thanks for any advice you can give!
Not really an option for PDFs. You can have stuff on layers that appears or disappears, but unlike web pages the page layout is fixed: everything stays where it is on a page. For more/less to work nicely you need a format where stuff can move down/up to make room or close gaps.
