Placing a SWF file into a PDF file is a bit of a hack. It's going to have some rough edges.
You should be able to use the Media panel to save a poster image so you won't see a blank space.
However, the first time you open the PDF, you WILL have to click on the SWF file to play it.
I created a SWF slide show, exported it as a selection, placed it back into InDesign and exported a PDF. You can see the result below. There's a poster image, but I still have "Click to activate" to start the slide show.
Thanks a lot...
I thought I could solve this somehow but okay...this is the way I did
it now...It's a pity that you cannot open it directly but never mind :-(
Do you also know how to make the background transparent? If I choose transparent in the
export settings, I get a white background nevertheless...that's really anoying
It's transparency in the HTML (if you view it in the browser). But, because it's a hack, it doesn't carry over into a layout in a PDF file.
