    Hidden Pages for Print

    Omar Saleh

      Hello

      i use InDesign CS4 to create PDFs, some time there are some interactive elements as Video.

      is there any way to let the user to print the PDF and when it comes to that page that has the Video, it will print different content to replace the Video.

       

      Thanks in advance

          Make a substitute page for the print version and swap it in Acrobat Pro, but is the interactive PDF really good enough in terms of image quality for print?

            Thanks for your help, do you mean if i have 4 pages, and the last one has video on it. i have to create fifth page and when print the user choose 1,2,3,5?

             

            yes, it is. since the final out put is high quaility and delivered on CDs not online.

              That would be one way. The other would be to make a separate file for that page, export to PDF and use the Replace Pages command in Acrobat.

                  Thanks again, but what i am looking for is something different

                  your way is to replace new page with old page, am I right?

                   

                  i am looking to let the user get new look for the page when print

                      seems this feature unavailable, this is when searched the doc in ID:

                       

                      Choose which layers are printed or exported to PDF

                      1

                      To review or change the Show Layer and Print Layer settings for your document, select a layer in the Layers panel, and then choose Layer Options from the panel menu. Specify layer options, and click OK.

                      2

                      Do one of the following:

                      Choose File

                      > Print, and click General on the left side of the Print dialog box.

                      Choose File

                      > Export, specify Adobe PDF, and then click Save. On the left side of the Export Adobe PDF dialog box, select General.

                      3

                      From the Print Layers or Export Layers menu, choose which layers you want to print or include in the PDF:

                      All Layers

                      Prints or outputs all layers in your document, even if they are hidden or set as nonprinting.

                      Visible Layers

                      Prints or outputs all visible layers, even if they are set as nonprinting in Layer Options.

                      Visible & Printable Layers

                      Prints or outputs only those layers that are set as both visible and printable.

                       

                      thanks guys
