Does anyone have any practical advice or tips based on personal experience to offer re linking from within standard slide presentations or PDF documents to present and display live Mathematica animations using the Manipulate[ ] commands --and back? Notes: I have Adobe Acrobat and some elementary experience in linking from within PDF presentations or documents to movies, QuickTime animations and the like -- including creating the links in the PDF document to start with. Before I start on any tedious experiments doing this with Mathematica Manipulates[ ]s, I'd appreciate any tips or advice from others who've already done this. [Similar tips for linking to Mathematica Manipulate[ ]s from within PowerPoint or Keynote presentations may also be hepful -- but my base platform is likely to remain PDF rather than either of these.] I know there are Mathematica supporters who will argue strongly that presentations like this not only can be, but should be, prepared and presented entirely within Mathematica itself. Sorry -- all due respect for this view -- but not gonna happen, for me or, I think, for very many others.
