I'm creating an ePub with the latest update of DPS and InDesign 5.5. I have a button that I want to link to an actual PDF file within the same root folder of my InDesign files but I'm having trouble making it work. I'm using the HTMLResource.zip approach. I'm using the Go to URL on the buttons panel with "HTMLResources/article.pdf" on the URL field but it launches the viewer for the PDF blank. It's not trying to load the file at all. The pop-up window is just blank. I've also tried making a Hyperlink with a direct path to the file itself along with the button but that also doesn't work. By the way, the PDF file is less than 1MB in size. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!
I am creating an ad that will be placed as a page in an digital mag. within the ad I would like to have a movie (which I have figured out how to do).
I also want to have a button when clicked should dwnload a pdf file. Is this at all possible and if so what are the steps
where must the downloadable pdf file be hosted_ how do I create a .folio file which can be uploaded and viewed on my iPad with all interactions working.
I hope I am making sense. or am I asking for to much. all I want to do is show the client how this all looks on the iPad.
Thanks for the response, Bob.

I downloaded the DPS Tips app but I'm not seeing the Effects issue at all. Could you give me a rundown of how I can display the PDF? Thanks!
I think you need to take a few minutes to understand the basics of DPS. Here's a starting point:
