More Ways to Improve Your PDFs with FrameMaker-to-Acrobat TimeSavers/Assistants

Enhance interactivity/search with buttons and and text fields


When PDFs are primarily intended for screen display, form fields can be used to enhance interactivity (for example, buttons with tool tips or different states) or to provide enhanced search actions (such as selection of a search phrase from a pre-defined list of phrases instead of typing it). Fields can be specified to be displayed on-screen but not printable (so that buttons or other fields do not clutter the printed output).

Adding form fields manually after creation of the PDF is labor-intensive, and all work invested will have to be repeated every time the source documents are updated.

Using FrameMaker-to-Acrobat TimeSavers & Form Assistant, you can take advantage of all of FrameMaker capabilities to author documents that, upon conversion to PDF, will automatically contain the specified buttons and fields.
