To clarify, I created the buttons first using the Hyperlinks palette but then switched it to
Create Button and added Behaviors to Jump to Next Page on Mouse Down.
This 2nd option is also not functioning in Google Doc viewer.
My concern is that I could imagine a lot of recipients clicking View in gmail rather
than downloading the PDF and then viewing.
Am I better off doing this interactivity in Acrobat Pro instead of InD?
Why would you? It works in Acrobat, doesn't it?
It really, really, really sounds like the problem lies with Google's PDF viewer.
My concern is that I could imagine a lot of recipients clicking View in gmail rather than downloading the PDF and then viewing.
There are similar issues with Preview on the Mac. The standard advice, therefore, is to recommend Acrobat to view your document.
Jongware is correct. There are many free PDF viewers, but the "standard viewer," the one which follows the ISO PDF specification, is Adobe Reader/Acrobat.
Probably the Google viewer only implements the "easy" stuff in PDF, and ignores the rest (Acrobat forms, interactivity, etc.)
So it's quite like Adobe's own PDF viewer for the iPad, eh?
