DocView will shortly have PDF support - but only in the form of saving
help topics or selected topics to PDF, which could then later be
printed (or emailed) if needed.

As for your whole idea of using PDF's as some form of application help
system - that's just crazy. You are trying to fit a square into a
round hole. Use a decent documentation system like DocView instead -
which was designed for that purpose.
