Hi all,

 

I start playing with interactive pdfs and I would like to get my customers to print an interactive pdf that *only* shows the buttons that were triggered (or only played animations)

 

I created 2 buttons. The first one triggers the second one that is "hidden until triggered".

 

Any idea on how to make a print version of the pdf that show that second button only if the first one was clicked?

It would be wonderful. Take care.

 

Or maybe there is another way to get to this?

I don't know the JavaScript code to do that off hand but some...
