problem with scrollable content in cs6

Jul 21, 2012 10:26 AM

hi out there

 

well since i while i'm using the cs6 to create folios. now i have a problem i didn't have in cs5.5. if i create a scrollable content ("durchlaufbarer rahmen" in german) in the folio overlays i can't navigate on the area where this element ist placed. if i place a full screen scrollable content on one page and open the folio on the ipad i'm stuck at this page...

 

...hope someone out there knows a way to fix this problem.

 

thanks - alex

    That is not because it’s CS6. This is a problem for all versions.

     

     

     

    Workarounds include placing a button or MSO over the scrolling area or using PNG as the format for that article. This issue only exists on PDF articles.

    Again, this is NOT a CS6 issue. It’s a DPS issue with scrolling frames and PDF format articles.

     

    I gave you the workarounds.

    So there is a way to retain the PDF version of an article with this?

     

    I've tried adding an MSO over a scrolling area of text (separate from the frame, but still on top of it), and I've also tried placing it within the scrolling frame.

     

    Neither of these worked.

     

    Is there something I'm missing? What specifically allows this workaround to work? I'd love to include some full page scrolling content without making the viewer get stuck on one scrolling page in the middle of the document.

    have you tried placing your full page scrolling frame within a multistate, so that the user has to initiate it and then can tap a button to return to the normal spread once they're finised?

     

    I've done that and it works quite nicely

    I'll have to try this. It does make it a little more interactive... I'll test it out and see if it works!

     

    Either way, I hope Adobe addresses this need for navigation over a scrolling frame.

     

    Thank you!

    They sure do! it's strange how it works within a PNG article but not with a PDF one tho, I find this very odd!

    If it’s full page there’s no sense in using PDF.
