If it's possible it wouldn't be done through InDesign. Check in the Acrobat forum but be advised that even if there is a method to do this, many third party PDF readers will not honor it.

That is not possible when exporting a single InDesign file to pdf.
Maybe creating hyperlinks to multiple pdf help.. where in your toc has buttons with hyperlinks to each separate pdf. At the end of the pdf there is again a button that takes them back to the original pdf. This would then require total pdfs to be number of categories plus one pdf for the toc. But again this is a little complicated and messy
Within a single pdf i think it is impossible unless you try to employ some hacks like setting up buttons or changing view properties. ( lots of auch ideas are easily seen when you google )
Thank you for replying. Yes, I had considered the option of hyperlinking to multiple PDFs but I didn't want to over-complicate things. It seems like as of right now, this seems to be the only option.
