For comprehensive interactivity to work in a PDF, the only solution is Acrobat/Reader plugin. You can configure Chrome and Firefox to use Acrobat/Reader, but keep in mind the process requires either application to be installed. And the PDF will be downloaded, then opened in the corresponding application, as opposed to viewed through browser. Simple interactive elements like hyperlinks will work in most browser's default PDF viewer.
Thank you for a quick answer Jeffrey!
I was afraid that it didn't exist a fully compatible online viewer with full support for an Indesign created interactive PDF.
I'll have to rethink on this one, or see if there are possibilities to build one.
Have a great weekend!
I was thinking if you are able to get online access to an interactive PDF through a file sharing service like Dropbox?
Theoretically it should work to embed the Dropbox link, for example in a frame on a webpage or through a newsletter
in an email? Then it should be accessable on any browser, without the potential customer needing to download a plugin etc.
Or maybe i'm missing something here, any thoughts?
It doesn't matter if the PDF is shared on a dropbox or other cloud service or embedded on a webpage, the visitor's browser configuration will determine how they interact with the PDF, whether the PDF is downloaded or viewed with plugin/viewer.
