Do you mean parts of a page?

How are these layers implemented, exactly?
Yes when I said screen I meant the page. This will be shown full screen in the final presentation.
Imagine a page divided into quarters, as the mouse moves over each quarter it reveals an image of that quarter.
The layers were created in Illustrator and saved as a pdf with top most layers checked.
I can reveal and hide the layers by clicking on linked areas to change the saved view, but this requires a hide method (other than just moving onto the next clicked item).
I'd also like to use transitions as the quarter is revealed, but from what I've read transitions only apply to changes of pages.
Yes, I *think* you can do what you want. I don't know much about layers in Illustrator, but I think they're implemented as OCGs (Optional Content Groups) when converted to PDF. OCGs are shown in the Layers pane in Acrobat.
Thank you George,
A very useful link, I'm just going through the articles there.
Hope I find what I need.
Seems like I should use Forms Fields instead of the direct route I was trying to use.
Yes, it is possible. Please have a look at this article. Hope it will answer your question.
Please let us know if it works.
Thank you Ahmad,
I'll play with that and see if it is an easier way to do it.
