Hi Community,

 

Is it possible that my viewers can download a different PDF if I publish my document with (APO) Adobe Publish Online?
Can I include a link to another PDF file, that could be downloaded with that button.
I have off-screen slides, that slide into frame only when you press the interactive buttons, they do not appear on the downloaded PDF.
Any help will be appreciated.

I've done it the other way round – an Interactive PDF created from InDesign with links to several Publish Online documents that have links to return to the PDF, or to an external website and to a YouTube video, the whole hosted by one of the third-party applications, in this case PaperTurn.

Thanks for the reply Derek, I will check it out, but I doubt paperturn could use my document, it's possible to even export as PDF interactive, like I said the off-canvas slides do not produce in the final bounce. It can only be published online from within Indesign.

But I think I found a solution, instead of my slides being off-canvas, ill place them behind the current content, which is on a white rectangle and then I will instead let the top layer fade out or slide away.

To add to Derek's response, if I understand you correctly, you'd like the user to be able to download a different, interactive PDF with the "Download PDF" button from Publish Online? If so, this is a feature that many folks would like. Would you add your vote and comment to User Voice? It's a resource Adobe uses to decide which features should be added. https://indesign.uservoice.com/forums/601021-adobe-indesign-feature-requests/suggestions/33185851-do...

And don't know if this helps, don't think it's quite what you're going for, but you can create a Publish Onlne document that slides pages into place on page turn (on desktop browsers). Here is an example: https://adobe.ly/2yTI8OE
