    buttons within rollover buttons?




      I have an indesign doc which is basically a world map. On the map several locations are marked which, when exported to PDF, and rolled over shows a popup with office info for that location.


      That i have no trouble with using buttons show/hide etc.


      However, within each rollover i need to add buttons for email/web links that can be clicked to open the relevant link.


      So can button within rollover buttons be made using Indesign?

          This will work with 2 Buttons: Button 1 will have an action to show Button 2, and Button 2 can have an action to go to destination (email/web link). Also note: you can not apply a hyperlink to the text portion of the button, it needs to be accomplished as a button action.

          It will not work with 1 Button that has a rollover appearance. The rollover appearance is visual, not functional.

            Hi there,


            Yeah ive managed to get round it by setting the trigger button to be on click rather than on rollover as with that when i rollover the link button within the rollover it hides the popup. Popup is then removed by adding a close button to the popup. A bit more cumbersome but should work fine.
