Topic: Button Behavior

I have a database (approximately 6000 pages) that contains reference materials and forms that my organization uses on a daily basis. The starting point is a single page .pdf file that has buttons by which the user navigates to a specific topic. The buttons have mouse down actions which open another file then executes a menu command file>close. After clicking the button a dialog box appear stating:

"One of the actions closed the document. The actions following that action were not executed. To execute all actions, move the action that closes the document to the end."

The problem is that the menu command action is already the last action. Ironically, if I set the file>close menu command as the first action, I do not receive this message (even though there are actions remaining). I am able to get it to work without the message if I attach the file>close command to a mouse up. However, that is noticeably slower.

This worked fine in Acrobat 5. Is anyone else having the same problem or are there any suggestions?

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.
