An article co-produced by Max Wyss and Makiko Itoh. Based in Switzerland, this dynamic Acrobat/PDF duo has produced some of the most complex, interactive PDF-based forms we've seen. In their opening tag-team contribution, they explain -- and show -- why they've chosen PDF as their "tool of choice for a diverse array of solutions."
Sure, some of us know that you can set a few transition effects to display when a PDF is viewed in full screen. But did you know that there are many more ways that are not nearly as well documented for adding effects?

If you're Acrobat-savvy enough to realize that "FDF" is not a typographical error, then you know that the "Form Data Format" is a way to transfer data to and from PDF-based forms. But you may not realize some of the other ways you can utilize FDF. That's OK, because University of Washington research engineer George Johnson knows -- and he's sharing some examples in his Planet PDF article Linking Up with FDF."
