Yes, and here is how:
Load your document and go to the second page of your document – we are using the second page because it does not make much sense to have a button on the first page that brings you back to the first page – and place a button wherever you want that button to appear on your page. To place a button, select Tools>Interactive Objects>Add Button.
Now just move the mouse cursor over to the page and draw a rectangle where you want the button to be, in the size you want the button to be.
Once the button is created, you will be able to change it’s name, and to access the full properties for this button:
Click on the “All Properties” link on the yellow pop-up. We will change the name on the full properties dialog. This will bring up the properties dialog for this button.
On this dialog, select the “General” tab and change the name. After that, select the “Actions” tab.
What we have to do on this tab is a bit more complicated. First, make sure that “Select Trigger” is set to “Mouse Up”. We want this function to be executed when the user releases the mouse button on this field. We select “Go to a page view” as the action to perform when the trigger (mouse up) occurs.
Now we click on the “Add” button to actually add this action to our navigation button. This will bring up a pop-up window with further instructions:
After we navigate back to the first page (we are still on the second page of the document), we can click on the “Set Link” button to configure the page view we want this button to go to. This link is set to a “Page View”, not just a page number. This means that the zoom level, and which portion of the page gets displayed is also part of the “Page View”, so make sure that you see exactly what your users should see after they click on the navigation button.
We now have one button that will bring us back to the first page. We can of course repeat these steps for every page in our document, but there is an easier way to accomplish this. Go back to the second page, where our navigation button is. The button should still have the blue outline with the resize handles, if that is not the case, select Tools>Interactive Objects>Select Object and click on the button. Right-click on the button to bring up a menu:
From this menu select “Duplicate Across Pages…”. This will bring up a dialog that allows us to select which pages this button should be duplicated on. We don’t need the button on the first page, so we cannot select “All”. Instead, we select from page 2 to the last page in the document (which happens to be 20 in my sample document).
After clicking on “OK”, all pages, starting with the second page, will have this navigation button in the same location, and with the same functionality.
