I am creating a cd with director that open pdfs when buttons are clicked. I have imported the pdfs as flashpaper documents and loaded them as sprites, when put on the stage they appear correctly but are too small. When I try to resize a flashpaper document the actual document I want to view moves off to one side and I lose the flashpaper bars. Is there any way to make the flashpaper bigger without losing the document and flashpaper menu bars? Go easy with me I am new to this.

cheers and thanks
Richard

Hi Merete,
Thanks for the info, I have spent a lot of time going through the links you sent, thus the time it has taken to get back to you.
Alas it is not as easy as scaling the flashpaper sprite (wish it was).
Loading the flashpaper as a movie doesnt help either, my default size is 309 x 400, not the 500 x 400 that seems to be the normal flashpaper default size?
The forums have not yielded any fruitfull info as yet, but I will continue with them to see what turns up.
I have tried the adobe pdf viewer extra with no luck.....
I have only a little experience with lingo so much of the handler behaviours are a mystery to me.
I can get the files to open in acrobat reader but that negates the whole purpose of the CD.
I will soldier on. If you know of a coded example that I may look at that would be great.
cheers
Richard
