I have created a 140 page report in Indesign, and have used interactive buttons on almost all pages so users can click back to the index, home page etc.
However when I export this as an interactive pdf, it opens in Acrobat with the purple form bar across the top - which says 'Please fill out the following form' (which I don't want because the document is not a form). I understand this occurs if a certain amount of buttons are used in an interactive document, is there a way this can be removed?
There is no way to keep it from appearing in most versions of Acrobat for a recipient. There is a preference in Acrobat or Reader which each user can turn off: Preferences > Forms > Uncheck "Always hide forms message bar". I am pretty sure there is no way to control the user experience for someone else.
I seem to remember adding a small bit of security to the PDF like not being able to make changes would do it, but I might be mistaken.
Thanks Bob and Steve. Yes, seems to be known as the '101 button bug.'
Bob is correct, when exporting click on 'Security' then ensure Changes Allowed is set to None. Purple bar then disappears.
