Topic: Slide Show Presentation Question
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 140083

I recently created a slide show presentation from a number of .gif files using Adobe PhotoShop Elements 2.0. PhotoShop then converts the files to jpeg format (I believe) and then saves to PDF format. When I open the PDF file inside Acrobat 6 Pro, the slide show presentation begins with a 10 second time delay between pages (screen shots). When viewing the presentation, one can conveniently use the left/right arrow keys or click the left/right mouse button to move back/forward through the pages that comprise the slide show. The escape key is then used to end the slide show presentation. However, once the slide show presentation is ended using Esc key, there is really nothing readily apparent to restart the slide show presentaion inside the viewer apart from closing then reopening the PDF file inside my viewer. While I'm privy to using JS, I don't want to reinvent the wheel so to speak. So, I'm wondering if there is a built-in feature I'm missing that will allow me to restart the slide show presentation inside the viewer or do I need to do something else to get this to work? Thank you ahead of time.

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
