I'm creating pdfs via FrameMaker for viewing via the unix based Reader and the browser based plugin. I've created several navigation buttons in the pdf files that work fine in the stand-alone Reader. However, a few of the buttons do not work in the browser plugin. We are using MSIE 5.5. Is it possible to configure the buttons to work similar actions in the browser plugin via Javascript as well as perform the desired actions in the stand-alone Reader. The button action in question are as follows:

1) Go to previous view: This does work in the browser within the current doc, but will not jump back to the previous doc.

2) Close: The close action is used to trigger a Reader plugin to write to a database.

3) Search: Is there anyway to point to a AcroCatalog generated index via a URL address or must I envoke a web based search engine?

The overall goal is to support all functions from either viewing option.

Thanks for the help!!
