    Linking to a PDF File

    EzraP SJM

      I'm creating an ePub with the latest update of DPS and InDesign 5.5. I have a button that I want to link to an actual PDF file within the same root folder of my InDesign files but I'm having trouble making it work. I'm using the HTMLResource.zip approach. I'm using the Go to URL on the buttons panel with "HTMLResources/article.pdf" on the URL field but it launches the viewer for the PDF blank. It's not trying to load the file at all. The pop-up window is just blank. I've also tried making a Hyperlink with a direct path to the file itself along with the button but that also doesn't work. By the way, the PDF file is less than 1MB in size. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!
