I'm having an incomplete result from an interactive PDF made in InDesign CS5. I am using a MacBook Pro with OS 10.6.8.
I made a 1-page invitation. It has two images. One is static, one is Flash video. I imported the Flash, and then I used the Media window palette to add a Poster (the first, static pic) and a flash playback controller.
I exported the page as an interactive PDF. When I view the exported image in Acrobat, everything is fine. It is also crrect in Reader.
When I attach the PDF in Mail, Gmail or Yahoo mail, the frame containing the video is empty. What can make this happen, and how can I fix it?
Try placing the PDF file in a Zip archive. (In the Finder, right-click on the PDF file and choose Compress "[name of file". Then attach the Zip file to the email.
That works in one respect, Steve, since the unstuffed PDF will open in Reader or Acrobat. My goal, however, is to get the PDF to look correct when someone sees it in Mail. Is thee any way to do that?
There is absolutely no guarantee that any PDF will preview correctly in a mail application.
