Q: When creating a bookmark in Acrobat 9 using the Select tool then choosing New Bookmark, the bookmark should be titled after the selected section. Instead, the bookmark is titled "Untitled.” What could be causing this issue?
A: Normally, when using the Select text and images tool to create a bookmark, the bookmark should automatically be named after whatever text is selected. However, there may be security on the file or the selected text could actually be an image. Either one of these conditions would prevent the bookmark from being named properly. If the file is protected, remove the protection or contact the file’s owner. In the case of an image, the bookmark can be renamed by clicking on the bookmark title.
Q: In an Acrobat 9 Pro form, what is the best way to set up form field navigation so that clicking on any row of a table redirects to an associated text box on a different page?
A: The best way to set up form field position is by setting the focus to the field you want users to be redirected to. If you are using Acrobat Professional (not Forms Designer) and the field is in the same document, then use the following JavaScript code: this.getField("Yourbutton").setFocus(); Checkout the "Adding Javascript to a field" movie in Acrobat 9 Pro: Creating Forms for more information.
