    InDesign Button Overlay not showing on top of placed oam

      UPDATE: 3-18

      No one have any suggestions or ideas about this?

      I am working on my first DPS project for iPad(s). I had a lot of flash experience in the past and I really like the workflow of Edge Animate. I have created an OAM and placed it in Indesign in it's own (cover - page 1) folio. I planned to just place an InDesign Hyperlink button on top of the OAM inside of the InDesign document and publish it. When I download and open the file on the iPad using the Adobe Content Viewer,  the button for the web url does not appear (doesn't work on the local viewer either).

       

      Is it not possible to place other overlay items on top of Edge Animate files? Do I need to include the button in the Edge Animate OAM?

       

      I also saw on another post where someone was having trouble with a white FLASH using the autoplay... I am having that too, but I also see a rough-jaggy version of the poster image for a split second between the loading stage and the main stage during INITIAL playback. Any input on how to resolve this too would be greatly appreciated.


      Thanks.

          Hey there,

           

          You're right in that you can't place objects created in InDesign to overlay your Animate content. This is because InDesign/DPS use Animate content as web overlays -- overlays in the most literal sense, in that it overlays your entire document so it will always be the topmost layer.

            Thanks Sarah! I couldn't find anyone talking about this issue, but had come to the conclusion that it might be a z-axis issue. I just created the button in Edge and all is well.

             

            ALSO: I couldn't get the jaggy Poster frame flash at the beginnning of the animation to stop on the iPad, so I set the background to transparent -- still did it, then I decided to make the animation a web overlay instead of importing the oam file and it works great and is smoother than the placed oam file on playback.
