Are you sure you are exporting it as an Interactive PDF?
Have you checked the options at the bottom of the General panel in the Export PDF dialog to include Interactivity, etc.?
Hi Steve/ Alex,
Yes we always have those boxes checked in export options...
The majority of the buttons in the document work, only a few that have glitches... Some pages of the doc have 5+ buttons on them, and it is 220 pages long.
Is this bigger than what inDesign can handle for an interactive document?
Shouldn't be. If only have a few have glitches, as a practical matter, I'd just fix the buttons in Acrobat.
I didn't know you could fix buttons in Acrobat, will give that a shot.
Do you know whether it's the size of the document that is causing the problems in the first place?
I've been having experiencing a similar problem after I chose to create a digital presentation with InDesign instead of PowerPoint.
It's basically a showcase of products with several non-linear navigation buttons (for which I use buttons, bookmarks and the "Go to Destination" option).
There are several videos, so I thought that the interactive PDF container would be the best choice for a single file, since this presentation is to be distributed to many sales representatives.
Everything was fine until there were about 100 "pages" (slides). After this point, the "Go to Destination" buttons stopped working (although the mouse cursor indeed changes to a pointing hand). Only the "Go to next page" buttons do work, and I have already tried to export the PDF in several ways. I've been really thrilled by what kinds of restrictions does an interactive PDF have.
Have you found any solutions to this matter? I think I have pushed this functionality over its limits...
For us it was exactly the same issue, when the page number in the doc headed up towards the hundred mark it seemed to break the functionality.
I think ultimately, inDesign is only capable of so much & you might have to look at rebuilding your document.
We had to hand ours over to our programming team who broke the doc down and rebuilt in flash.
It's disappointing that it isn't yet capable of handling such large interactive documents.
Sorry i can't help you any more with it.
