there are some browser/cache issues which make life difficult,
particularly for your point 1.

For point 2: the Close action is not supported by the PDF viewer
plug-in. In order to trigger some action, you might consider a
"submit" button.

To point 3: Catalog works only in a file server environment. In a web
server environment, you would have to use an indexer/search engine
which supports PDF and runs on the server.

Hope, this can help.
