Export to PDF - disabling mouse wheel scroll / page up down keys

Hi folks. I am wanting to email a client a wireframe exported to PDF. It has links to click from page to page and they work great. However… if the viewer uses their mouse wheel or the page up/down keys, they get “random” pages instead of the crafted user journey I want them to follow by clicking.

Is there any way to disable those abilities in the exported PDF? Or perhaps there is a snazzy workaround for this the community can help me with?

thanks in advance :slight_smile:

So it seems like this is possible, @Adrian - but it requires you to edit the PDF in Adobe Acrobat Pro, and for the viewer to open it in Acrobat Reader.

Here is what I was able to find. They are talking about touch screens, but maybe it shares the concept with mouse-driven viewing as well.

Let us know if that helps.
