We have a company newsletter that we wish to launch digitally as a document that can be:
a) be viewed as spreads
b) incorporate a realistic page turning action
c) has a zoom function.
InDesign has a function that will turn the PDF into a Flash file where the page turning function works. Unfortunately, there is no zooming option, and when viewers click on the page (the text is too small in this format), it opens up a PDF of that particular side of the spread, defeating the purpose of a special format where you can turn pages realistically. There is a program called Page Turn Pro which incorporates all of these functions, but it is very expensive, at hundreds of dollars per year. Are there any other alternatives out there?
