Thanks, your rating is very useful for me!

But it looks nice, hmmm? ;)

Can you reproduce the approach in this article?

Is there a fast solution, when I agree to use mouseclicks instead of mouseover events to show further information?

In the example you linked to they're creating an XFA form, which is totally different to an Acrobat Form. XFA forms can be created using LiveCycle Designer (or an external library, like iText), and they have their own advantages and disadvantages. Maybe for your purposes it would work better, but I don't have enough experience with it to say for sure.

Using mouse-clicks might make it simpler. In principle, you could then create a single large button (or other form field), and when the user clicks it you can use the mouse coordinates to determine which text to show... If this is something you wish to have developed for you, feel free to contact me privately.

But inconvenient for the user ... ;)

I have no experience with annotations. Is it possible to use annotations without having thousands of icons on my pdf page? Can I use a transparent picture as icon? Another idea is, to use only annotations in form of colored rectangles. Are there annotations with freely selectable icons?

Annotations don't usually have icons, only some kind of annotations. But I'm not sure you'll get much better results with thousands of annotations instead of thousands of form fields...
