Regarding diplaying PDF file in Rev:

On Win, using the Rev Browser Demo, I entered the following string into the browser address field:
file:///Users/williammoseid/Documents/About%20Stacks.pdf

This 1 page pdf was displayed in the browser with all scroll, etc. controls visable and working

Then entered this string into the browser address field:
file:///Userswilliammoseid/Documents/Amazing%20FusionCharts%201.pdf

This 36 page  pdf displayed in the browser with all scroll, etc. controls visable and working
the swf file located on page 3, ran perfectly.

On Mac, using the Rev Browser Demo, entered the following string into the browser address field:
file:///Users/williammoseid/Documents/About%20Stacks.pdf

The 1 page pdf was displayed in the browser with all scroll, etc. controls visable and working

Then entered this string into the browser address field:
file:///Userswilliammoseid/Documents/Amazing%20FusionCharts%201.pdf

The 36 page pdf displayed in the browser with all scroll, etc. controls were visable and working
inculding a swf file located on page 3 which sort of ran. This swf takes about 10 seconds to run.
By clicking in the page margin after 10 seconds I could see the rendered swf. By clicking
in the page margin, every few seconds or so, a portion of the rendering appeared until after
a number of mouse clicks the rendered swf appeared. However mouse over various buttons
in the rendered swf would not show the "ToolTips" compared to the Win Rev Browser Demo
where the swf rendered as expected and all buttons which had "ToolTips" displayed perfectly
as well as the "Replay" button would rerender the swf.

The Mac issue is as Jacqueline reported earlier "I can reproduce that. It seems to be a focus issue."
This has been reported as Bug 8740.

So the Rev Browser Demo appears to provide one way to "show" pdfs in Rev

Best,
