Adding A Blow In (Flash Only)

To create a Blow In

Note: You will need an even number of pages that each share the same dimensions in a combined PDF file. These dimension must be smaller than the preceding and following page of where it is placed. For example, if the preceding page is 650x650, each page of the combined PDF file will need to be less than 650x650. A good dimension for example would be 250x250.
