Unfortunately, the reliability of layers and buttons in an interactive PDF is sketchy at best. However, it can be workable if you plan your design accordingly. Sorry to say, but maintaining layers and how they interact with button operation is just not something you can count on in an interactive PDF
In my humble opinion, depending on your end goal, using Publish Online may be the best option if you can go that route.
Buttons are always on top of any content and will always cover images beneath them. Buttons have nothing to do with layers.
thanks a lot
no it have to b exported as an interactive pdf as ill transform it into a form in acrobat
hi, no actually thats not true
my buttons are beneath the photos..
actually there is NO Logic to their bloody layer order system!
it makes me want to pull my hair!
I don't get why the hell would they give us the option to create interactive pdfs when ITS A HHUGGGGEEEEE DEAL BREAKER to mess up our layers!!!
OK FOUND THE SOLUTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You need to go in object / interactive / set tab order
& change it!
Changing the tab order fixed your button and image layering problem? Do tell. I thought that only affected form field navigation.
As Willi Adelberger said, "Buttons are always on top of any content and will always cover images beneath them. Buttons have nothing to do with layers."
It is even more of a mess if any buttons overlap other buttons in an interactive PDF.
For some reason my last message isn't appearing..
SO i was saying... NO.. my buttons are below the images after reorganizing the tabs..
