Interactive pdf exported from InDesign no longer function like before and I still don't understand why Adobe did it. Very frustrating indeed. I tried to just place multimedia into the pdf with acrobat too, it works. HOWEVER, I can't change the size of the media at all. Any solutions to this at all? Adobe is seriously killing me... I need HELP. Thanks :'(

 

 

 

p.s. thanks to adobe its 3:48 am and I am still trying to figure this out so that I won't die for my portfolio submission. Haha. :')

Thanks! After selecting 2 or more objects, the size options are no long greyed out. However, when I click into the height or width option, nothing happened... Very weird indeed... Any idea why this might happen? Thanks again.

Because since InDesign exported interactive pdf is no longer functioning, I want to place video within a pdf via acrobat and then adjust its size and position in the page more accurately, so the portfolio page will look nice and neat when I present them instead of just drawing a random shape for the video to place and drag it around the page without any precision to position it. I hope this makes sense! Thank you so much for replying!

Do you know if there is a way to input the size? For instance, if I want the video to be 16cm x 16cm positioned in 5cm and 5cm (x and y-axis accordingly), how could I do such adjustment precisely instead of drawing them?
