    buttons change layers when creating interactive PDFs HELP!

    F12Help

      I have many documents all with images that require to be enlarged, so for each image (some pages with a single image, others with 4 or 5) I create the image as a button.  In a new Layer called Overlay I create a greybox over the page and the larger image over that (both buttons and hidden initially).

      So the order in layers goes like this:

      Large image (top)

      greybox

      small image.

       

      The ePub interactive preview within InDesign is spot on.  The button reveal and hide the images correctly and are in the correct order.

      HOWEVER, when I generate an interactive PDF, all pages look fine BEFORE I click a button, but once I click on an image I get:

      large image is display BELOW the greybox.

      Small image is display ABOVE the large image.

       

      I published the document online and when displayed in a browser all the problems disappear (I take from this it uses the same engine as the ePub interactive preview) but when I download the online document the errors come back.

       

      I really feel this is a bug in InDesign (listening Adobe?) and if anyone has had similar issues, I'd love to hear from them.

      Any and all help gratefully received.

       

      Thanks,

      Ian
