I have three playing cards, each with there orientations, I want to put into a single PDF. And I need to know if this is possible.

Card 1: Front of card
Card 1: Back of card, upside down
Card 1: Back of card, right side up

Card 2: Front of card
Card 2: Back of card, upside down
Card 2: Back of card, right side up

Card 3: Front of card
Card 3: Back of card, upside down
Card 3: Back of card, right side up

I would love for the user to need to click a button (or some other thing) to go to the next image. This is a flash card game, so I do not want to show too much too soon.

On the back, the two orientation of the card involve the hint and the answer. I do them as opposite to you can read the hint and not accidentally read the answer.

Does PDF support this? If not, what other things can I do to have a portable document that is 100% platform independent?

Thanks.

One solution would be to use PowerPoint and create 3 slides (one slide per card). You can save the file as a pdf document.

Yes - but the pdf file will not incorporate the buttons. You could also create 3 separate pdf files and add a button to navigate from one to the other

I really prefer a single PDF.

Can a button click show hidden images?

a pdf file is simply how any document would appear if it was printed on paper....

But I am hoping there is some dynamic nature to a PDF. Maybe a closable box the usr can open with a mouse click and explore hidden images. So, I need a way in which the user controls how (and whether)images are shown.

the only thing I can think of is that you create three separate pdf files, that way, only one card ca be opened at a time.
