There is no way to hide pages in a PDF. Perhaps if you give us full details of what you want to do as well as the intended audience and distribution method we can offer some suggestions.
First of all thanks for your quick response!
We want to do the following:
We are busy with a school project, the intention of this project is to give students the oportunity to structurate there thinking proces. So we have an page with multiple (clickable) blocks on the frontpage. Behind those blocks we want to add other interactive pages so the students can file those pages in and save them.
We lose the point of this when students see all the pages, you have to see this as a kind of webpage, each student has there own page to log in an full in some things and click on blocks to open other pages.
Hope you know enaugh, and can help me out. I have the whole CS6 suite so other software solutions are welcome.
With kind regards,
Sounds like an eLearning project. There are dedicated applications for that such as Captivate and Story Line.
Yes what you're looking for is an eLearning application, which is not part of Creative Suite or Creative Cloud. Adobe's eLearning application is called Captivate. Other popular eLearning applications are Storyline (very user friendly and PPT-like), iSpring (also very easy to use). All these applications offer publish to HTML5 for mobile. Only Captivate is truly responsive design – the others rescale to fit the screen – but Captivate is a bit more challenging to learn.
Hope this info helps. Have a great day!
I think it could be done with PDF.
You could prepare the layers and the buttons with InDesign. That would mean one page and a couple of layers in InDesign.
All the other functionality has to be made with Acrobat Pro.
And usually students are clever enough to cheat and open such a PDF with other PDF reader software than Adobe Reader to skin its contents.
