I created an interactive pdf from an Indesign file on my personal computer. I put the file on another computer but it doesn't work? What could be the problem?
I'm trying to view the PDF on a MacIntosh. I created the PDF file on a PC
(Windows Vista) and used Indesign 5.5. I went to File, Export and selected
Interactive PDF as the file type. I accepted the other defaults. Also, I created
three bookmarks in the Indesign document. The first two work but the third one
doesn't and It's always the last bookmark I click on that fails to work. The
bookmarks work fine in the Indesign document.
Dropbox is a free service. www.dropbox.com. It's available for all operating systems. After setting it up, you can select a file or folder and create a link to that file or folder. Then you post it here. That way anyone helping you can have access to the file.
Nope, put it into the public folder in the dropbox. Then with right mouse click on the file select copy public link from the context menu and publish it here.
With which program are you trying to open the file on the mac?
It does work for me, too. What operating system are you using and how are you
getting it to work? I would like to take it to school next week and also try it
on a Mac.
Can you try adding some additional bookmarks to the file? I added three
bookmarks and the first two (any two) I try work but the last one does not.
Your Interactive PDF will function correctly along as it is opened with Acrobat or Reader, regardless of platform. Apple Preview will ignore interactive buttons. Preview is the default PDF plugin app for Safari. There is absolutely nothing you can do for anyone who opens PDF with Preview or through Safari.
