I'm working on a master catalogue system that was developed using InDesign then developed using DPS into an iPad and iPhone application. I am now going through those indd files and relinking the buttons as hyperlinks to other pages to maintain the same type of usability for pdf use on computers.
Sorry I inadvertantly entered the question before I was done creating it; I was actually editing it while you answered haha. Then it wouldn't let me save the edit.
I need hyperlinking objects to be non-printing, but visible on screen. If I store them on a layer and set the layer to non printing, they all become invisible, both print and digitally. If I convert them to buttons that are non printable and hyperlink the button, it doesn't do anything, because buttons are near useless on interactive PDFs.
That probably answers my question, meaning what I want can't be done.
Just a quick clarification: I want a digitally clickable button/vector/object on an Interactive PDF that is non printable/invisible when printed.
As I said, not my normal workflow. It's important to note that this is a button property, not the non-printng attibute set in the Arrtibutes panel or setting a layer to non-printing. I'm preuming this presets that property in Acrobat during export so you don't need to edit the button after.
I've tried that though. The non-print method works, but the button doesn't. I export and click the button and nothing happens, and I cant assign a specific page for the button to go to, and if I try creating a hyperlink on the button, nothing happens what-so-ever. Pointer comes up, but nothing.
I'd prefer not to do this in Acrobat.
