After converting a PowerPoint presentation or Excel spreadsheet to PDF you can enhance it with
Acrobat features, such as adding hyperlinks, setting display time intervals between each
slide/page in the presentation, etc.
If you wish to create a multimedia presentation in a PDF document without the use of
PowerPoint or Excel, you can use Adobe Acrobat 6 Professional Edition to add multimedia
elements (including images, sound, video clips, Flash SWF movies, etc.) directly to PDF
object. Follow these steps to set the interval between each page of the presentation:
1. To assemble the images/elements you want to present, choose File > Create PDF >
From Multiple Files to open the Create PDF From Multiple Documents dialog box
and select the files to be assembled as separate pages of the PDF document.
2. In the File To Combine window, arrange the files in the order in which they will appear
and then click OK to convert the files to a PDF document.
3. In the Pages tab, select the first thumbnail, right-click (Windows) or CTRL-click
(Macintosh), and then choose Properties from the Context menu. When the Page
Properties dialog box appears, click the Actions tab. Page Open is selected by default.
var interval = app.setInterval(“this.pageNum = this.pageNum + 1;”, 3000);
Page Properties dialog box and assign the action to the page.
above. A variable named interval is created and set equal to the setInterval method of the
app object. The setInterval method is used to pause the application for a certain amount
of time, in this case 3000 milliseconds, which is equal to 3 seconds. The code in
quotation marks executes after the interval has passed. In this case, it increases the value
of pageNum property of the document by 1, which advances the document to the next
page. The code will continue to execute every three seconds until you stop the code by
clearing the interval.
8. In the Pages tab, select the thumbnail for the last page in the document and then right-
click (Windows) or CTRL-click (Macintosh) and choose Properties from the Context
menu. When the Page Properties dialog box appears, click the Actions tab. Page Open
