Hello, I created a swf animation in flash to place in my interactive pdf (created in InDesign). Is there a way to remove the gray icon that shows up when placing the SWF? In PDF mode, when I click it, it plays, but I'd rather there be no icon at all, and it play automatically. (or play on click, but without the gray icon). The gray icon just doesn't look good.
also, does anyone have an easy solution for getting it to replay?
You don't say what version of InDesign you're using.
In InDesign CS6, I can place a SWF file on the page. Then I open the Media panel, and while the SWF is selected, choose Poster: None and Play on Page Load.
That seems to do what you want.
