    How to make an animated editable text box?


      I want to make a pdf form with textboxes and tickboxes, but one that includes animations (like zooming in on a specific part).


      My approach was to create it in InDesign along with the animations, and use Acrobat Pro to make the pdf. However either the animation part, or the filling in part doesn't work in the final pdf.


      I'm not sure if this is the way to go, but with no programming skills I would love it to work.



      Thanks, Maurits

          Even if you did have the programming skills, I'm not certain animated PDF form fields would be feasible, or desirable. InDesign > PDF animations are Flash based, and somewhat a backward step with respect to supporting technologies and viable deployment. If anything, you'd want to be exploring the possibilities of doing what you envision using HTML 5, or at least JQuery, which I know can be used to animate within form fields.
