Scrollable frames are only useful in DPS projects. Not PDF, not EPUB, not Fixed Layout EPUB, not Publish Online.
Well.. let me tell you how it would be useful.
I have a native DPS folio, about 20 or so articles, each about 15 pages. Every page has scrollable frames, MSO's buttons and links galore.
I want a translator to translate it into a different language.
Tried InCopy, but that doesn't show any content on other states of scrollables and none of the text is threaded. Can't make a PDF because of all the content off screen. Can't make a word doc because the next needs to be relevant to the associated imagery. I can't make a web viewer folio because of our authentication process.
our current workflow is they use an iPad and translate into a word doc and paste in screen grabs from the iPad. This process takes forever and they all complain. They all know basic InDesign, but there is no way I could train them to navigate nested multi states, or embedded HTML.
So it would be INCREDIBLY USEFUL to have a no hassle viewer of a very interactive DPS article, so our translators would not need an iPad or an adobe ID or any other thing, they could review, copy and paste and get on with the program
I don't think Steve meant it that way. What he meant was they are only supported in DPS.
Do you have an actual DPS license?
BTW, if you look around the InDesign EPUB forum you'll find a workaround that adds scrollable frame support to EPUB. Not sure it will work with Publish Online, though.
Hi Bob, yes PADI had an enterprise account, with DPS. Is there any other way to sort of achieve what I'm looking for?
This has haunted us for 2 years now.
Thanks in advance
Beyond using DPS? Not really.
Yeah...I am coming to terms with that. Not the end of the world.
