Bug Report: Cannot select first page of a multi-page PDF as icon for a button
This is a bug report for Acrobat Pro 2017.
When creating a new form "button" with an icon appearance, it is not possible to select the first page of a multi-page PDF as the icon image.
- Create a new button field
- In the Properties dialog box for the button choose the Options tab
- Choose "Icon only" from the layout dropdown list
- Click the Choose Icon button and select a multi-page PDF
- Try to select the first page of the PDF as the icon image.
- Only the 2nd or later page can actually be selected (even though the first page will appear in the dialog box).
Thanks for reporting this issue.
But we are not able to reproduce this issue at our end.
Thus please let us know your Acrobat version and OS details.
Moreover, are you facing this issue for every file? If not, share the sample file.
I posted the original report of this bug -- it still occurs even with the latest update of Acrobat 2017 (17.011.30148)
Attached are two files -- one called "button page" that has a button on it (with icon) and a second PDF called "icons - 3 pages" that has three different pages in it. I can get the second or third page of this "icons" file to show up as the button icon, but I cannot select the first page as the icon (you can select it in the dialog box, but it shows up as the second page).
I am using Windows 10, latest version all updated.
Yes, this happens with every file. I am using Windows 10, fully updated, and the latest version of Acrobat Pro 2017. This also happened with the last version of Acrobat XI.
Here are links to two test files that you can use to duplicate this error:
blank.pdf -- this one is blank but it has a button field in it
123.pdf -- a three-page file with 1, 2, and 3 on the pages so you can see which is which.
If you open up blank.pdf, select the button using the button edit tool, and select properties you can then select an icon for the button. If you choose 123.pdf as the file for the icon image, you will be able to select page 1 but it will display in the button as page 2. You can also select page 2 and 3 correctly, but never get page 1 to display in the icon as it should.
