When creating either a button or hyperlink, you can replace “http://” with “navto://” in the URL field. Use the Article Name or Collection Name value as it appears in the metadata, not the Title value.
I tired buttons and forms feature but it doesn't work at all.
I am experimenting from an Indesign print document file to publish online, is this feature also disabled like the folio overlay??
This is not Digital Publishing, what you are referring to is the Publish Online technology preview: InDesign Help | Publish Online (Preview)
My earlier reply was specific to Digital Publishing Solution.
See if that helps: full screen, embed button not showing in InDesign publishing. If not please post in the InDesign forum
Moved to InDesign forum.
If you can give us more details on what you're trying to do we can help.
I'm trying to publish a publication online with Indesign. I've explored to add some simple animations on the cover and insert a video and all are working great. Although I know they can toggle the pages in the browser, I still want to add buttons on the content page so viewers can skip to the page they want to view. But the buttons feature doesn't seem to work after repeated tries. Anyone can advise why?
Btw I am using Indesign CC 2015 and understood the folio overlay feature has been taken out for DPS, is the button feature also taken out?
You can convert any page item to button using Buttons and Forms panel.
For creating a button to navigate to a page use following steps:
1. Select the page item.
2. Go to Window > Interactive > Buttons and Forms
3. In Buttons and Forms panel, select "Button" in Type dropdown list.
4. Select "Go To Page" in Actions. You can input the page number, you want to navigate to, in "Page" field.
This button will navigate to desired page in your published output.
Please see if it works and revert if you face any issues.
Thanks for the advice. I will try again and update if it works!
Consider this, go to a specific page and create an New empty text frame with the text tool. With the text tool selected go to the hyperlink panel and select "new hyperlink destination", use "text anchor" as option and give it a name.
Now, go to the page FROM WHICH you want the reference to start. Create a button, and as action "go to destination" and select the name you gave your empty text frame. This way, you can even move around the pages without having to know check each time if the buttons are still working. This works fine in a interactif pdf too.
