Use the menu tab to naviage and on pages 6 and 7, the swf file that i placed into indesign doesnt work.It just shows as a blank page.

Your resources folder is missing:
Check other InDesign SWF export tips from eDocker FAQ, there´s usefull information even if you don´t finalize your brochure with eDocker:
Thanks for your help,
I have managed to get the files to link, which works
but on page 6/7 the file will play when you first look at it, but then when you deviate from that page and go back to it, it has dissappeared?
I don´t see anything but blank grey on pages 6-7... what there suppose to be?
if you revisit
The initial time you visit page 6/7 I am hoping you will see an interactive animation (as the resources files should now be accessible), which is an .swf file placed into indesign and then the whole document was exported back to swf.
Hopefully you will see that, otherwise i have more problems that i thought. Even if you can see it, if you then navigate off the page, the return to it, the animation has disappeared.It only seems to appear on initial viewing.

With Safari or Firefox (MacOS X) I see nothing but grey, Google Crome shows me your animation but only first time as you said....
What kind of technique did you used? Did you make that animation in Flash Professional? If yes, did you have some ActionScript code there that might cause some troubles?
That is strange, in safari and firefox i can see the animation. on several different computers. eek.
The animation was made in flash and the exported to .swf. I will check out the actionscript code, and hope that it is something there. I thought it must be a setting in indesign.
Thanks, I will keep you posted.
I didn't do the flash animation, but i went back to the person who did, they said they looked at the first two frames of the animation and they both contain play() commands so it shouldn't falter.
It seems it must be some option in indesign?
I also just noticed something that might indicated where the problems lies. Whilst in indesign, in the preview panel I changed the setting to Preview Document mode. Whilst previewing the whole document in this panel, i deviated from the problem page and went back to it, and then it worked fine, the animiation would reload when revisiting.
Would this suggest that the problem occurs when exporting the file to .swf?
I just noticed that link you gave earlier points directly to SWF file... that´s not suggested way to do it.... you should create a html-wrapper and embedd SWF to it. Then you should provide links that point to html-wrapper....
That may very well cause the issue you have faced with animation.
