I can't seem to get buttons to working in web browsers.
Here is an image of what I've put together in Acrobat Pro XI:
First, I imported a layer (which is a PDF file). Then, I made a button that when rolled over with the mouse displays the imported PDF.
This button works when the PDF is viewed in Acrobat Pro XI but not in Google Chrome, Edge, or any other browsers.
Is there anything I'm missing?
Thanks in advance for your help!

Chrome and Edge uses their own PDF viewer. May be they don't support this feature.
Thanks for the reply.
Perhaps, but the client I work for had someone else make PDFs with a similar feature (though I'm not certain that this was done in Acrobat Pro).
Do you happen to know of any other way to incorporate interactive buttons into a PDF for the purpose of displaying additional text on rollover, click, etc?
You can use Show/Hide field actions. They work in Chrome, but I don't know about Edge. Buttons can be used like layers but importing a PDF as the button's icon and making it read-only.
Thanks.. I was looking at this option, "Show/hide field"... however, I'm confused as to how to add a field? I'm not sure how to add this to my PDF.
A button is a type of field. You can use a separate button that has Mouse Enter and Mouse Exit event actions set to Show/Hide the button that displays the content you want to show/hide.
Thanks, man. This absolutely solves my problem and it works like a charm.
Heya, currently having the same issue do you mind explaining how. I tried the solution listed above but it didn't work for me.
I created an org chart with photos of people - added a roll over setting layer visibilty to show photos with persons wearing masks. works well in adobe reader but not in any browsers.
Any assistance is appreciated!!!
See above. There are no guarantees it will work in a browser. Report any issues to the developers of those browser plugins.
