    Interactive PDF doesn't print what is visible

    TheRooster13

      So I've created an interactive pdf from InDesign where the user can toggle between various images(buttons) to make their own design. However, when it is time to print, all of the images, or at least a random set of the images are printed.  The viewable/hidden status seems to have no affect on what is actually printed.

       

      How can I fix this to make the print match the screen?

          ...and of course as soon as I post the question, I find an/the answer.

           

          If you set a button to start off hidden, and you have the "Button is Printable" option checked under "PDF Options" the button will be printable initially. If you toggle it on and off in the PDF it will get back in sync. The solution is to uncheck "Button is Printable" for buttons that start off hidden.
