How can i modify an interactive button to be visible in the pdf, but not to be visible when printed?

Feb 22, 2013 4:21 AM

So I filled my design with interactive buttons and everything is working fine. But now the customer wants the buttons to be visible in the pdf......but not visible whenever the pdf is printed.

Anyone? :-S

    Change it's properties to Non-Printable. There's a section in the Buttons and Forms panel in CS6 called PDF Options with a checkbox that seems to be for that, or you can do it in Acrobat Pro.

    What version of Acrobat are you using? I't been a while since I did any form work...

    What does "InDesign says no" mean? How is the customer printing this PDF? Anything other than Reader/Acrobat Pro is a crapshoot.

    Check or fix the buttons in Acrobat X: Open the PDF. Choose Tools > Forms > Edit. Double-click the button that's not working. On the General tab of the [button type] Properties dialog, in the Common Properties > Form Field menu, choose Visible But Doesn't Print.
