So i am trying to set up buttons in an interactive PDF. All i want it to do is when you click button 1 you can see state 1. When you click button 2 you will see state 2 and state 1 will go away. I have tried doing with with a Master page for the buttons and each state on a different page, but you cant tell the buttons to go to target page in the interactive PDF. Can anyone help me out?
A button would always target the same action, so it must not be one button on the master than on each page a different button. You can set up a button, store it in a library and use it and adapt it for further use.
You can place your alternate content in InDesign layers, export to an interactive PDF (including layers), then edit the buttons in Acrobat to show/hide the layers. Here is a Dropbox link to a sample interactive PDF that includes step by step instructions on page 2:
