I'm about to convert a book to be used on an iPad. The book consists of several chapters/articles that range from 4 to 30+ pages.
On some of the pages I work with scrollable text.
My workflow is the same as described here: http://help.adobe.com/en_US/digitalpubsuite/using/WS67cb9e293e2f1f605e 8ea44412b13edc5ec-8000.html
Most of the times it works as promised, but sometimes it doesn't! I have try to find out why it sometimes doesn't work. It seems random and it's driving me crazy.
but still it sometimes simply doesn't work!
I would really appreciate if someone could help me with this. Any ideas?
Which version of tools are you using? If you're using the v19 set of tools, you want to use the Scrollable Frames overlay. If you're using v18 or earlier, you want to use Pan & Zoom > Pan Only. There are no known issues with scrollable frames in v19 -- it should work as described.
I have tested again.
In a short article (4 pages) everything works just fine in horizontal and vertical layout.
However in a long article (41 pages) the vertical scrolling of text in the horizontal layout simply doesn't work except a one exception. I have checked all the settings - they are identical.
The strange thing is that if I preview the horizontal layout in the ADOBE Content Viewer all the scrolling works just fine, but as soon as I add the complete article consisting of horizontal and vertical layout to the folio things stop to work.
This is really frustrating. Maybe it's necessary to re-think the layout and avoid scrollable content since it so unreliable.
Right now I have no idea how get this to work.
The tools I use are: InDesign CS5.5 on OSX 10.6.8, FolioPanel-CS55-12_1_3, FolioProducerTools-CS55-1-9-1
Any help would be apprechiated.
