Is there a way to apply a button command to a clipping path..

Jun 25, 2012 7:34 AM

Without it being applied to that clipping path's bounding box?


Or does a button have to be a standard shape?

    Buttons need to be rectangular in InDesign. The workaround is to create multiple buttons to form the shape you need.

    @Tim – the area of the button that reacts to tapping is always a rectangle.

    It's independent of its visible shape. That is true for DPS.


    In Flash you could use fancier shapes for that area.
    For HTML I'm not so sure…
