    Interactive PDF not interactive in Dropbox

    Vaunn Level 1

      Hi all,

       

      I'm creating an interactive PDF for my thesis. I've just completed a sort of overview page which is essentially a giant multistate object activated by buttons (that have a roll-over state). Certain states include links to video, audio etc. I exported as SWF, imported into a fresh InDesign doc and exported as interactive PDF. As expected it works fine in Adobe Reader and Acrobat. So far, so good. The problem is I have to accommodate a certain individual who will not go to the bother of downloading Adobe Reader (*shakes fist).

       

      But, I was delighted to see this interactive portfolio created in InDesign, made available through Dropbox and all the interactivity works when viewed within Dropbox. Hallelujah! You can view it here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/107572406/Portfolio.pdf

       

      Unfortunately, when I did a little test with my work in progress - nothing! Very boring, non-interactive PDF viewable here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/38750917/exhibition.pdf

       

      I've searched and can't find the answer. I'm obviously missing a step somewhere. Any light anyone can throw on this would be deeply appreciated.

      PS. I'm working on an ancient MacBook with OS10.7.5, and CS6.

       

      Thanks in advance.
