Has anyone ever heard if InDesign or Acrobat allows you to set up an action on PDFs that will require the user to read through each page successively so they have to click through each page before moving on to the next? My client is wanting to create a training PDF, but needs to have it set up with this requirement.

One way of doing that is splitting the file into pages, attaching them all to the first one, and then use links to open them one after another. If you really want to limit what the user can do you can attach page 2 to page 1, attach page 3 to page 2, attach page 4 to page 3, etc.

Hi,

You could write a variable in level document script:

nextPage=0;

Then an opening page script for all pages:

if (this.pageNum!=nextPage) this.pageNum=nextPage;
else nextPage++;

This script can be adapted if you don't need all pages or if you wish come back to previous pages.
