I have a slide with a hyperlinked image which (through the Action Settings feature) runs an external PDF presentation (run program and I put in the filename).

I want the hyperlinked to automatically activated when the presentation reaches that slide. Now you either have to mouse-click or mouse-over, I want neither.

Is this possbible?

Thanks

Remove your trigger button.

Click Insert, Object, Create from file, Browse to your PDF, select it and click ok
Apply a custom animation to the PDF object:
Add Effect, Object Actions, Open
Change the animation timing to With Previous or After Previous
