I keep getting only chrome windows to open just like the image i included
What OS did you tried this on? Also I tried this on other windows computers and they were also only opening chrome windows instead of the email client(outlook)
-Thnaks for the reply!
So basically it works but not for me xD haha How odd.. Hey could you do me a favor? can you make another new file without using the assets i created but use the same process and link me another pdf? I want to see what happenes, if it opens the email client or more chrome windows. I am really confused on why this is going on haha. I really appreciate your help! Thank you!

sebias_2, try this pdf file, i created from scratch
Here is indesign cs6 file:
Alright thanks! Ok this is what happens in my end:
- The interactive PDF you sent me works fine. The iD file opens fine as well and is exactly the same process so that checks.
-I exported your iD file to .swf, created a new iD document and imported the exported .swf file from the file you created. I exported this new document to interactive PDF. I open it and again I click the links and only google chrome windows open
This is the link it probably works fine on your end
I think there is something going on in my end. "Google Chrome" or "Flash" might be intersecting email links or something becuase I cannot get these .swf + interactive pdf combo to open the email client not even after I used your iD file, exported .swf, imported it and export again to interactive pdf.
Again the interactive pdf you sent works fine and when I export my file to interactive pdf it works on my end as well, its only after i export to swf and then I use the file inside iD and export to interactive pdf that it does causes me trouble. I will see what I can do to fix this. At least it was working for you so if its only in my end then its not that bad but it will bugg me forever haha!
Thanks again for your help!! Sorry to take your time Salah!

Try to convert swf to pdf from Acrobat Pro, File>create>pdf from file and select the swf file.
Same result only google chrome opens.. there must be something in my chrome that is doing that I will try to research that and I will update you if I find something
sebias_2, try uninstall then reinstall google chrome.
See this link it's the same as your issue related to google chrome:
Windows>Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs\Set Default Programs
Click Windows Live Mail
Check the text under window: "This program has all its defaults." Then it is oki.
Outlook -> tools -> options -> other -> Make outlook default program.. just check uncheck then check again and apply close it.
i did the same.
I clicked on gmail handling mailto: links by accident as well. I was able to remove it from handlers, but then nothing happened when I clicked on mailto links even though I set my mail program as default again. In program defaults the mailto protocol was set as Google Chrome and it was stuck, wouldn't let me change it to anything. After searching around forever I finally found/figured out that if you open your registry and navigate to this key
The default key will say ChromeHTML
right click on it and choose modify
For Outlook change it to - Outlook.URL.mailto
For Lotus Notes - LotusNotes.URL.mailto
I don't know for other mail clients but its probably the same just the name.URL.mailto
Took me along time to find this so just posting the solution for others in the same situation.
Hope it may help
Hi there! I was looking for how to make an email button and I found this post.
I don´t know if you found an answer yet to your problem or if this at all will be helpful. but you can try to use the text tool. create with the text tool a box as big as the button and then select the text box with the black arrow. Ten go to the menu- type- hyperlink. It would open a url window where you can type the "mailto:jnifofvmof" stuff and it would work. This is what I did and it worked.
I guess that when you imported some files just render images.
let me know if this was helpful at all.
