Hello to everybody.
Just a question that I can't figure out by myself.
I am working on a project to create an interactive pdf but I am not able to link an application created by myself in adobe director. The name of the application is start.app and I want to run it when I pushed over a button.
I tried to write a script in the script folder to make it run, but I am not able to link the script to my object in the interactive pdf created with indesugn.
Is it possible?
thank you very much.
Ask somewhere else (you are slightly unclear about what you intend to do so I'm hesitant to suggest a better forum -- Director, perhaps?).
But a script that you write for InDesign and run in InDesign only works within InDesign, i.e., it performs actions on your InDesign document, not on a PDF you exported from that same document.
It's very difficult to explain by words.
I need an help in this forum because I want to make my book(interactive pdf) opens an external application that is a sort of presentation with video and images created in director.
If I try to create an hypertextual link between a button and this file I don't have the chance to choose it. So I thought to write a script like - launch "start.app"- to make my presentation run ( it happens if I ask the script to run).
But I wonder: - how can I make this event happen only when I ask to my project to do it?-
For example: I am reading my book on adobe digital edition and at the end of the third chapter, there is an image. I mouse up and I understand it's a button. When I click on, it opens a new window with my presentation running and I watch it. At end I quit and I keep on reading my book on Adobe digital edition.
Have you an idea?
I hope I have explained it much better?!?!
