print style sheet for digital report printout version -- Is it the right approach?

I'm currently design a web app for users to design and develop scenarios and chemical programs for their geothermal systems, but at the end of the day they need to communicate this to the customer through a printed report. The report is also generated in the web tool, which could potentially be a 10-page report with different data (some of them are displayed in a really long table and some of them are visual graph). User can customize the report by selecting the contents they want (like a dashboard).

Setting Expectations for Content Requiring Registration

Good morning,

Has anyone done any A/B testing around whether or not providing more information upfront about documents that require registration before download entices users more effectively?  For example, have you seen users being more or less willing to providing contact information based on how much information is provided about the document, e.g. document size and "teaser" content like an executive summary or abstract and file size, in the case of a PDF?

Creating Interactive PDFs - Need help

I've written a usability report that I converted from Word to a PDF (based on limited tools I have to work with), but wanted to add some interactive elements in it -- namely the ability (1) to show larger images and (2) play embedded videos from a link.  Unfortunately, despite the limited tutorials I've found and Adobe's mediocre help content, I haven't been able to figure out how to do it, and was hoping someone else has done something like this.

PDF Mockups


Has anyone made any attempt at turning mockups or high fidelity prototypes built in HTML with javascript into a usable PDF file that maintains functionality?  I'm looking at ways of preserving this information (in my case mockups that have alternate views controlled by javascript) in pdf form.  If anyone has done this I'm curious what the process was.  Was there specific changes that had to be made to the scripting code etc...

Statistics, Facts, Reports on PDF vs. HTML

I am working to make the case to some of my company's IT professionals
that the decision to go with PDF delivery for certain reports rather
than HTML is a bad one.

I've read all of Nielson's articles on PDFs as well as rebuttals by
various individuals (where they only seem to point out that PDFs can do
more than just be for print; include hyperlinks, interactive forms, etc.
but not that they do these things well enough to remove usability

Can anyone else point me to statistics or reports on PDF vs. HTML and
PDF for onscreen reading.

PDF form v. HTML

I'm looking for information on the pros and cons of using a PDF form
to enter information that will feed into a database, versus a plain
old HTML form.

I don't have any experience with online PDF forms but my gut feeling
is that they might be less accessible and possibly harder to use
because of font issues and the like. Any thoughts?
