The menu functions in the Action tab only have "go to next page" but I need the button to "go ahead two pages" aka skip the next page. This button will be present on maybe 120 pages of a 500 page document. Using "go to a page view" means I can't duplicate the button on the pages that need it and have them go to the correct page, which turns this into a very labor-intensive prospect.
Basically, on the verso pages are annotations, and on the recto pages are checklist steps. Sometimes a checklist continues to the next page, which is fine when utilizing as an actual paper checklist in booklet format printed on paper, because the user simply turns one page, but when trying to optimize for an electronic (mobile) viewing and interacting experience, the user will either need to swipe twice to get to the next page with checklist steps, or (ideally) click a button that will take them right there.
The only tool I have available to me is Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. It is not possible to load other software products on my work computer, and it's not possible to do the work on a non-work computer.

thanks! I'll see if this will work when I'm back at work on Tues.
Joel, this worked like a champ, thanks!
I have a follow-up question: when interacting with the PDF in Adobe Reader on a mobile device, my "Back" button, which is set to the action Menu Item->Previous View, does not work. From research, I have determined this is because Adobe Reader (mobile version) doesn't have this menu function to execute.
Thanks, appreciate the response. Unfortunately, there are other reasons why an iPad mini is the only tablet that will meet user needs, currently. Mostly related to certain required apps not being available on other mobile OS'. Form-factor constraints limit to a comparable mini-size form factor.
Unfortunate that the mobile version of Adobe Reader is not more responsive. If not for this single limfac, Adobe Reader would meet all our users' needs.
I tried this, but a second pop up appears asking about a line number?
I am trying to modify this answer to suit my needs. I would like to add a "view" button lets you click and go directly to the specified page.
Then I also want to build a button that you can lick to return to the first page...
Could you please help with this?
