Topic: Static, non-scrolling, table heads?
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 120280

My problem: I have lots of documents containing massive tables. The table heads varies from document to document (although there is only one table in each file). Each table contain lots of columns - which makes it hard for users (once they scroll down within a page so that the table head becomes out of screen) to know which column (head) the info belongs to.

Thus I need to have "static table heads" within my PDF-files - i.e. I want table heads to stay put even when the user scrolls within a page (on a computer screen). When printing I want the document to look normal.

Ideally I want the upper part of each page to stay "un-scrollable" until the user reaches next page (as each page starts with the table head).

Is this something that can be achieved?
- By using standard PDF-functions?
- With a plug-in or API?

I can live with having to use full versions of Acrobat and manually install solution specific files (plug-ins or similar) on each computer.

Please point me in the right direction...

Adding a PDF Stamp Comment

OK, so you want to stamp your document. Maybe you need to give reviewers some advice about the document's status or sensitivity. This tip from author Ted Padova demonstrates how to add stamps with the Stamp Tool along with related comments.
