I'm making buttons in InDesign and then exporting the InDesign file as PDF document. The buttons are wide and low i.e. width is much greater than height. I rotate these buttons 45 degrees and I have few of them next to each other, something like this: \\\\
Problem is that the button's clickable area is square after I have rotated my buttons that 45 degrees so that means the button's clickable areas are stacked on each other and I can't click on one individual button. For example, I click second button from the left but action happens according to first button because clickable area of the first button is on the second button. Is there a way to change the button's clickable area from a square to the actual drawn button? Or is there some good workaround for this? I need to have rotated buttons next to each other and I should be able to click each of them individually.
I don't believe there's any way to adjust the clickable area. It's always defined as the bounding box of the button shape so rotated buttons will just not work when they're in close proximity. You may need to redo the design, I'm afraid.
The limitation isn't in InDesign but in the way PDF handles buttons.
Thank you for your help! I hope somebody could still come up with some nice workaround. I have crossword puzzle for kids where words can go in three different ways: – | \
By pressing the correct words which are buttons, action happens.
