Yes. Create the slidehow in the iPad. There are a lot of apps for that. Then export to PC, in case you want to distribute.
Indesign is not a slideshow creation tool.
Depends on what you want to do and how you want to distribute it. MSOs work
wonderfully for DPS but without knowing more it's impossible to help you
Sorry, I meant that I have a 6 page interactive indd doc (URLs to googlemaps, nav buttons etc) and one page has 3 images I want to switch between. I am distributing via email (it is an interactive version of a printed job and so we can't spend to much time on it) to people commercially and so most will probably view in an office situation i.e. on a desktop computer.
But for the smaller percentage of people who may view on an iPad I just wondered if there was a way to get the slideshow working for them?
I have one large main image and a set of thumbnails.
If it's just not possible outside apps and MSOs in DPS then that's fine - at least I tried!
Thanks for your help.
You could it all using show/hide buttons but even at that, interactive PDF is a crapshoot on mobile devices.
Yeah, that's what I'm doing using show and hide.
Adobe Acrobat on iPad shows the show and hide buttons/slides but nothing happens when you tap on the buttons. Some other pdf readers don't even show the buttons or slides.
Oh well, if there isn't a work around there isn't!
Are you sure you want to send that interactive document as an attacment? Many people hates large attachments these days... And you options are pretty limited if you want to package whole thing inside one file. Only PDF and Flash formats supports that and both of them are really poor choices on mobile world.
If I were you, I would convert my indd-doc to HTML5, uploaded it to the server as a web-app and share the link to it on my email blast instead of attaching anything.
Something like this:
You can open that link with computer or iPad... that dummy document has been made in InDesign (it took maybe 3 minutes from scratch to server)
If you use correct tools, you can remain links, MSOs, videos etc you have placed in InDesign.
Thanks for that, it's something I will look into, as a branding/print designer this is something that I will have to learn but seems worth it.
What tools would I need to learn/buy?
I´m working for company called eDocker which makes tools for InDesign > HTML5 web-app creation so I mostly use them for this purpose, but of course there are other choices as well.
Subscription of eDocker CREATE! costs around $100/month but you can revoke subscription for the months you wont need it... so you only pay for months you are using it.
With a combination of InDesign and eDocker CREATE! you can build interactive HTML5 documents.
Are you going to attend PePcon Conference at Chicago 15-18 July 2014? We have a table there and we will show some live demonstrations too.

I will look into this line of solution.
