I believe the following is an Acrobat for 6 issue, probably on the

I created a form in Acrobat 5.05 for Mac and made navigation
buttons to easily move between the 4 forms in the PDF. This form
was created over a year ago and has worked flawlessly. The trick
of the buttons is making the colors change, i.e. the color is
reversed on the current page while the other 3 buttons are gray.
The code works fine in Acrobat 5.05 both in OS 9 and OS X. In
Acrobat 6 on OS X, the button doe not change automatically and
the user must “rollover” to turn it into gray. Below is a sample of
the code.

this.pageNum = 1 (or whatever the page number)

with ( {
delay = true;
fillColor = ["RGB", .3, .37, .8];
textColor = ["RGB", .9, .9, .4];
delay = false;

with ( {
delay = true
fillColor = ["RGB", .75, .75, .75];
textColor = ["RGB", .3, .37, .8];
delay = false;

The trick is to remove the Mouse Exit code from the current page.
Again, this works fine in everything but Acrobat 6. The buttons
work in version 6, but they do not turn gray automatically as the
user must “rollover” to make the other buttons gray.

Any ideas?

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.
