16 views and no replies, maybe it needs further clarification. This image shows a detail from a page. If I move the cursor inside the blue frame the text field 'Click to activate' appears. I need to edit this text but can't find where to do this in InDesign. Blue frame contains a link to a video clip and features a still image from the video. Its not a button, otherwise I would be looking at button states and rollovers.
Thanks, do help!
The answer is that it is nothing InDesign (or you) did. You're looking at the default player of an Adobe Reader or Acrobat when it encounters a video.
If it were an image, you could add a Tool Tip, by choosing from the Media panel menu > PDF Options > Description.
However, for whatever reason, you apparently can't override that particular message in any way I can figure out. You can view the video properties in Acrobat by right-clicking on the video and choosing Properties. But I don't see a property to edit the message.
Many thanks Steve,
I spent a long time looking at this issue and thought I had just missed a trick by forgetting something. But it appears I didn't, and I also won't be able to translate it to the irish language either!
I confirmed what you suggested by placing another video file on the same page and exporting to PDF. Same thing occurred, same activation text appeared. I did find a much older copy of the file which used the mpeg format for the video, it did not display the text. So I am putting it down to a software update since first created.
Many thanks again.
