Defining an Action

PDF markups can be configured to perform certain actions when clicked, like jumping to a specific location in a document or opening another file. In addition, Tool Chest tools can be configured to automatically create markups with defined actions.

Unflattened markups have a small action icon below them. Revu users can click this icon to trigger the action separate from other interactions with the markup. Flattening a markup causes the markup itself to take on the properties of the action icon, so clicking anywhere on the markup will trigger the action.

The action icon only appears in Revu, so the action of an unflattened markup will not be accessible if the PDF is viewed in another PDF viewer or editor. However, the action will be accessible if the markup is flattened.
