When i export my interactive document to pdf, the result is not working well. All the roll over buttons are blinking when the mouse cursor point on it. also i have problem with layers. the appearance of layers is not as same as file, so some images go under other.
I have no problem in preview and it works well in preview but when i export to pdf the result is catastrophic.
Is there anyone have a same problem? Or anyone know what i am doing wrong?
Did you ever find out how to fix this? The same thing is happening to me. I have a InDesign CS6 file with buttons that trigger animation. It works great in preview and if I export to swf/html, but some elements (text and buttons that should be displayed) are missing when I export to the Interactive PDF.
No answer for you, but the same thing is happening for me! Mine is like a map with pop-up captions on it. The captions (which are hidden-until-triggered, actionless buttons) are on a layer ABOVE the marker buttons in InDesign, but Acrobat still displays the markers above the captions. I even tried removing all of the actions from the buttons in InDesign and adding them in Acrobat, but it still didn't work. Here's a screenshot from Acrobat of the caption showing up behind the orange markers instead of on top of them:
Also, you can see that the corner of the caption is disabling the rollover state on the marker - it should be covering up that little orange piece. What is going on!?!
Are you trying to put static content above interactive content? I'm not
an expert in interactive PDF by any means, but I don't think that's
going to work.
Hopefully one of the PDF gurus will stop by and be able to confirm that.
It seems that for interactive elements, the stacking order is determined by the order in which the objects are converted to buttons. Try removing not just the actions, but turning them back into objects. Or, convert them into buttons in the oppsite order than you did the first time. It's maddening, but it should work. Apparently, button creation order trumps actual stacking order. Weird!
The captions are buttons too (just with no actions on them), so I was hoping it would treat them as interactive content, but maybe it doesn't! Maybe I will try adding an action to them to see if that helps. If not, I'll try the re-stacking idea, but that will take a long time since I have tons of them! Thanks!
YAY!! It was the stacking order! And that seems to have solved the rollover transparency issue too. I will just have to undo/redo all of them now, but I'm so glad there's a solution. Thanks so much!! I will definitely remember that for the next project.
It turns out there are a few workarounds to solving the stacking order issue: copy and pasting, setting tab order in InDesign, or setting tab order in Acrobat. All the soltutions can be found here: http://indesignsecrets.com/stacking-order-bug-exporting-interactive-pd f.php.
