    In v20 its available in the Folio Builder panel (iPad only, I think). You have to plug to your Mac to the iPad with the USB cable and starting the Adobe Content Viewer app on the iPad first. Otherwise check iTunes on your Mac if your iPad is listed under "Devices".

     

    Are you using InDesign CS5.5 or InDesign CS6?
    You have to be up to date with the Overlay Creator panel to v20 as well. Check for that.

     

    Recently I had no chance with InDesign CS5 and the v20 tools installed on a Mac with OSX 10.5.8.

    You need to install both the updated panel and the v21 tools to see this option in the overlays panel. I installed the tools last night for ID CS5 and it works well.

    the device list in v21 are available in:

     

    — the list of all your folios in the folio builder panel (not the article

    view!)

    — the overlay creator panel (CS6: "Interactive Overlays")
