Add Page Transitions to Your Document

If your document is destined to be a presentation that you want to present in Full Screen mode in Acrobat or Reader (sort of like a slide show that hides the application panels, menus, etc.), you can add transition effects (such as fading or dissolving) when going from page to page. Next, you will add page transitions using the Page Transitions panel.

  1. In your document, make sure that page 1 is showing in the Document window.
  2. Open the Page Transitions panel (Window > Interactive > Page Transitions).
  3. Choose a transition type from the Transition menu, such as Cover. Position the pointer over the preview area at the top of the Page Transitions panel to see an animation that shows what the Cover transition looks like. Choose a direction (Up, Down, Left, etc.) from the Direction menu and set a speed (Slow, Medium, or Fast) from the Speed menu. This transition currently only applies to the first page. So if the user navigates to the first page in the PDF, it uses the Cover transition. You can go to each page in the document and set a different transition using the method I’ve described (see Figure 10).
  4. Figure 10 Create page transitions

  5. To apply the same transition to every page, make sure that the first page is showing the Document window, then click the Apply to All Spreads button at the bottom of the Page Transitions panel.
