Page Transitions in Acrobat: Overview

            You can add page transitions in Acrobat that appear each time a user advances a PDF page when in Full Screen Mode. Page Transitions in Acrobat let you present PDFs like audiovisual presentations.

            To add page transitions in Acrobat, first open a PDF document that contains several pages. Then open the Page Thumbnails panel in the Navigation Pane. Then select the thumbnails of the page or pages to which to apply transitions in the Page Thumbnails panel. Next, click the “Options” button in the toolbar at the top of the Page Thumbnails panel in the Navigation Pane. Then choose the “Page Transitions…” command from the drop-down menu that appears to open the “Page Transitions” dialog box.

            Select a transition style from the “Transition” drop-down menu in the “Page Transitions” dialog box. Optionally, you can adjust the transition’s direction and speed by using the “Direction” and “Speed” drop-downs, if available for the selected transition type.

            To make the pages transition automatically after a specified duration of time elapses, check the “Auto Flip” checkbox. If you check this checkbox, use the “After X seconds” drop-down to choose the number of seconds to pause between each transition. If you do not check this checkbox, the page transitions only occur when a user clicks the mouse button or uses the keyboard arrow keys.

            To set the pages to which to apply the current transition effect, you can use the “Page Range” area of the dialog box. Choosing the thumbnails from the Page Thumbnails panel in the Navigation Pane enables the “Pages selected in Pages panel” option button choice. However, you can also choose either the “All pages in document” or “Page range” options, too. If you select “Page range,” then enter the page range into the “From” and “To” fields. After applying the desired page transition settings, click the “OK” button.

            Remember that users can adjust their full screen settings to ignore screen transitions. Those users will not see them when viewing the PDF in full screen mode. If you are presenting a PDF that contains transitions on a computer, but the transitions do not appear, check Acrobat’s full-screen settings on that computer.
