Are you using EPUB or PDF? There is a huge difference in functionality between the two and you don’t seem to be clear about what you’re doing here.
Thanks for the quick reply. From what I could learn, pdf was the preferred format for a book project like this one, because the pages are very graphic intensive and new to stay fixed... hence fixed design layout and pdf.
If it would be helpful at all I would be willing to try to share/post the sample exported page I have been using to try to figure this out.
Forget using interactive PDF if you’re aiming at iBooks. Use fixed layout EPUB instead.
Great to know there is an alternative approach... I assume that format is compatible with other eBook readers too?
It does seem odd that the interactive pdf function does not work even when I am not using iBooks. Is it a case of user error on my part, or is there an InDesign bug with this feature?
