Interactive PDFs from InDesign

Hi again,

 

I am hoping that someone has a good answer on an interactive pdfs issue. (forums usally helps)

 

We have a document with aprox 150pages. We've created bookmarks for each specific page and specific buttons to navigate.

 

Problem:

The interactive pdf works great but randomly the bookmarks (buttons) is bugging out (not going to the right page) even if they work when i try it out in the prewiev mode.

So i assume it works in swf aswell. Anyone had this problem aswell?

 

regards

    What version of InDesign did you use to create the interactive PDF. What PDF viewer and platform are you using to view it?

    I have not experienced this (on shorter documents) nor do I remember it being reported. It could be that the InDesign file had some corruption. You could try this method to save an INDL file:

    Reopen in InDesign, then recreate the PDF file.

    However, if you use a bookfile and export to iPDF, bookmarks and TOC etc. will only work for the first chapter/document of the book. Long outstanding bug (as is the pagenumbering fault for bookfiles!)
