    Quetion about PDF portolio.



      As you can know, at Adobe Acrobat there is such option as PDF portfolio. Absolutely special document has signs like a Flash, but this uses PDF compression. But working in InDesign, and making interactive portfolio, i can,t save this in PDF. Sure, i can to use SWF, but it is interesting as it is possible to save in PDF.

          Is there a question here?


          I have a strong feeling that Flash is being deprecated at Adobe. Their main attention is on HTML5 and CSS. Here are some symptoms: (1) Adobe no longer includes Flash on mobile devices. (2) The new Acrobat XI was released today 10/15/12. Flash will no longer be built in. You have to have Flash installed on your device to be able to view the fancy Flash part of a PDF portfolio (without Flash, it's just a collection of files). (3) You never see mention of SWF export from Adobe these days.


          Just an observation.

            Sorry for my mistake...And you haven't understood me..

            OK.. Im making the same "interactive" portfolio http://dl.dropbox.com/u/12825708/designerkz/portfolio.pdf  and plus various effect like a Fader behind pages and etc. But if i save this in PDF i will recieve alot of page, and lost interactivty. Sure, i can save this in SWF but this format not clear for those who will recieve it.

            Can i to save this in PDF on ONE page like "PDF Portfolio" in Acrobat. Understand?

            And.. oher question:

            How it is possible to paste Flash animation (or how it's called?) in the PDF Protfolio into PDF files? And can i do that in Indesign?


            I hope in this time clearly?

              I don't believe you can do either of those things in a PDF file. A lot of people would like SWF-like features in PDF but the format is older, and is now controlled by an ISO committee. I've heard stirrings of a PDF-2 format in development, but have no idea what it may hold.

                Me either, but if I had to bet, I’d say anything to do with Flash won’t be among them.

                  Ok Steve! Then how they could do that in "PDF Portfolio"? Besides five theme PDF Portfolio I see some custom theme for it from users Acrobat, and had wanted to do theme for me too. These presintation as seemed to me better then SWF or clear PDF.
