MSOs are for SWF and DPS only. They don't work in PDF.
You could do the MSO as a separate file and export to SWF then place that into your ID file and export, but if you're expecting to do an entire document like that you'll be very disappointed.
Thanks Bob. I posted a short while ago, but have edited that post.
With further playing around I was able to get your suggestion working (exporting to SWF, then placing, then exporting as Interactive PDF). Why would I be disappointed if I tried that method with an entire document? My document will probably contain about 200 pages, and maybe 20 of them would have "tabbed" images. What problems would I come across, other than the extra time involved in separately generating 20 pages of "tabbed" images.
[Added after some testing]:
One problem I have found is that text is rasterised.
- When I export a page from InDesign to SWF, and then open the SWF file in Flash Player (Projector), text is a vector.
- When the SWF file is imported back into InDesign, and exported as a Interactive PDF, the text ends up rasterised…
- But if I export as SWF, the text is not rasterised.
CS6 is rasterising the text within a SWF file when it exports to PDF. Is there a way of exporting an SWF file to Interactive PDF so that text is not rasterised?
