I am trying to create a table of contents with buttons that link to the pages within a single article (TOC on pg 1).
Using the 'go to page' button action works fine, except for the first section which is on the page following the contents page (pg 2).
What happens is that the button activates the click state, but doesnt move to the next page. Then, if i swipe down on a tablet after hitting the button, it skips that page (pg 2) and goes to the page after it (pg 3). If i return to the table of contents page, the button now works fine and will go to the appropriate page...
I tried replacing it with a 'navto', but it had the same result, though a little bit different as it seemed navigate to a point with most of pg 2 and some of pg 3 showing.
Has anyone encountered this? or maybe is there some other option..?
Are you using a different size than the devices resolution?
IPad or android?
Are the articles smooth scrolling?

I have the same issue with Android. It is currently being looked at by the Adobe Engeneers. The case is open...
Here is part of the answer by Adobe but 'Got to page' is not working for me. Lets see with the new updates announced today....
======Answer FROM ADOBE=====================
Below mentioned are few important points for creating buttons in a folio:
Not Supported Button Actions:-
I did some more testing and found:
Previewing with the content viewer in indesign - I get the results i outlined above- 'go to page'/'navto' wont go to next page initially, but will go there after first scrolling to it.
On ipad - It works fine!
On android device (Acer Iconia) - Both 'go to page' and 'navto' wont work at all if they link to the next page.
yes no problem there
i have the buttons on first page of the document = #0
the button has navto://articlename#1 to link to the following page and won't work
i also put another button navto://articlename#2 to check and that goes to the 3rd page of the document fine
Not sure if this will help, but you could try and rebuild the article. Just start with the same number of pages and test your buttons/navto links first on blank pages. Then copy and paste one page at a time from your original article. I would probably retest after each page addition to see if a problem arises with a particular page or overlay.
