Which version of Indesign and what OS are you using?
have you updated the Indesign??
And the document you have created is web-based or the print based.?
Hello - thanks for the quick response. To answer your questions.
I am creating a course book for the class that I am teaching. It is a listening class so the students receive a print copy of the materials and there is a Flash copy that they have to download from the school network so they can do the listening activities. The PDF file and print copies look fine - they look like the 1st screen shot above - but the Flash copy consistently has problems with the interactive elements.
I am using InDesign 5.5 on Mac OsX. However the problem does not seem to be connected to either the Os or the version of InDesign (well for 4 / 5 / 5.5 anyway). Last semester I was working with a colleague on a similar document using InDesign 5.0 and Windows 7 and had the same problem.
(In the screen shot above the red "Answer" buttons and orange number buttons are always visible. They have been assigned a Show/Hide Button action that lets the students click on them to display the green answer buttons - the green answer buttons are hidden until the students trigger them with a click.)
