I am creating an interactive PDF in InDesign CS5. I understand you can use the preview panel to view your interactive features before moving on. The actions I am using in the PDF work fine after I export the file. Hyperlinks, destinations, etc. My trouble lies with the preview panel. I would like to use it to save time and clarify what I'm doing works while working, but the hyperlinks do not work in the preview panel. I am also not able to move to different pages within it. Instead, the crossout symbol shows up when I hover over the page forward/backward buttons. Is there a quick fix for this?
The Preview Panel is for SWF only.
Why then am I not able to use the preview in the indesign file before exporting my file to either PDF or SWF? As viewed in this video at 9:30 and 10:50, he is able to use the preview panel to test what he's done in his InDesign file as he goes(clicking on a button, moving pages, etc), even after specifying he is working on a PDF, not SWF file. Am I missing something?
