Is there a way to turn off the navigation with arrow-keys in a PDF when looking in Full-window view? I have a document with its own navigation in the design, and there are some pages that I need to hide/skip. (hidden pages only visible when clicking a certain quiz button). But when the reader uses the arrow keys to navigate through the document, the pages are shown.

You can't turn off this.

Does you use hidden template pages?

No, how does that work?

The pages must show when clicking on an answer (yes or no) - then the appropriate page shows with good or false answer. (The original file is a Powerpoint converted to PDF by the way)

You can spawn template pages. Details are in the Acrobat Javascript Reference.

You can hide the contents of the pages (for example, by placing it on a hidden layer) and then show it only when needed. That way, even if the user views those pages before they should, they would just be blank.
