    Rindler

          Hi, Rindler.

          Since this has to do with exporting PDFs from InDesign, I'm moving this conversation to the InDesign forum.

          It would probably be helpful if you listed what PDF content you are able to see in Acrobat Pro yet not see in Adobe Reader, after exporting from InDesign.

            What is it that you can not see in Reader: button behavior, rollover effect, hyperlink, etc. ?

             

            Also, are the versions of Reader and Acrobat the same?

              What is it that you can not see in Reader: button behavior, rollover effect,

              hyperlink, etc. ?

               

              Wow, I am impressed about the fast reaction:-)

              The interactive function I am using (unfortunately in German inDesign) is

              "button" > Action: by letting go (?). It's a file with some 100 pages and

              some 500 links. Exported as pdf interactive...

              The effect In AcrobatPro: when clicking on the thumbnail the original

              picture shows in a separate window without closing the original file. After

              closing the new window, I could continue in the multipage file...

              This is not happening in Adobe Reader. It says: the link was not found, and

              here and then, when shown in e new window, the multipage file is closed...

              Hope this helps..

              Thanks Jaro

               

              PS

              I did reply on the forum directly, but no success. There trying via mail.

              Hope it works:-)

                Hallo Dave,

                 

                Unfortunately not much reaction comes in this conference.

                How can I enter the German one?

                Best

                  Jaro,

                   

                  One problem with moved discussions is that many of our regulars don't notice them. I'll suggest you post a new topic in the InDesign general discussions forum (wherr this is now). Please be sure you indicate your OS and verison of InDesign. Also explain, as clearly as you can, waht it is that you want to happen, what you are doing now, and what is actually happening when you do it.

                   

                  My sense is that you want a thumbnail to act as a button to open a new window with a full size image, but I don't do that sort of work so I can't help you with any suggestion for how to make it work.It would not surprise me, though,if you need to make some edits to the PDF in Acrobat Pro after export.
