The icon-appr Package Author: D. P. Story Dated: 2020-06-13

Use this package to create icon appearances for push buttons, check box buttons, and radio buttons form fields.

Package works for pdflatex, lualatex, xelatex, dvips/distiller or dvips/ps2pdf; some techniques require Acrobat. Pdfmark-type drivers require, depending on the method used, aebpro or graphicxsp.

PDF Viewers: Adobe Reader DC, PDF-XChange Editor, and, of course Adobe Acrobat. SummatraPDF previews the icon buttons very well.

What's New 2020-06-13: Some technical changes in how EPS are handled.

What's New 2020-06-05: The basic functionality of this package is unchanged. In this version, the AP entry is added to the Names dictionary of the PDF catalog. This means that the names of the icons imported in the embedding environment are known to Acrobat/Adobe Reader/PDF-Exchange Editor. It also allows the icons to be manipulated using JavaScript methods, the most significant of which is the Doc.getIcon(<icon-name>) method. Revised examples illustrate Doc.getIcon().

 

Enjoy!

Now, I must get back to my retirement.
