We have PDF versions of client literature which have a JS action creating a dropdown menu to jump to specific pages. We've been producing them for a number of years but now the client uses MS Edge… and the menus no longer work… is there a way to fix it (except leaving Edge)?

I have found that only Internet Explorer has full compatibility for forms.

Hi

I am pretty sure that the PDF support in Edge doesn't allow for the JavaScript actions. So unless microsoft add the functionality I would expect you would need to use another route.

Regards

Hi Malcolm, thanks for posting. I had a feeling that would be the case. I've been looking for options to avoid clients having to think for themselves but have had no luck. Edge doesn't sound very popular on most forums!

Thanks again

Tony.
