Non-Printable hyperlinks need to be digitally visible

Jul 30, 2012 9:25 AM

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.

    Is there a question in there somewhere?

     

    If there is, is it an ID question, or a DPS question? DPS has a dedicated forum at http://forums.adobe.com/community/dps

    Why not just create a character style for hyperlinks and apply it to the text?

    OK,  a bit outside my normal workflow, but presuming youare working directly in ID, you cannot make something non-printing and have it show in the PDF. You'd have to fix that in Acrobat.

    You can make a button visible but not printable in InDesign. Create the button and with it selected,choose PDF options from the Buttons panel menu. Then uncheck Button is Printable.

    Thanks Bob.

     

    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.
