Button on master page but change text box on pages?

I'm creating an interactive pdf where you can click on different elements and get more information via a pop up box (a group of shape, text, etc)

There's going to be several per page.

 

I'm hoping I can somehow create these button shells on the master and just change the text content on the pages themselves, but it seems I can't edit the text on the page if it was created in the master.

 

Is this possible?

Not without overriding them and the idea that this will actually work seems more like fantasy than reality. Many PDF readers won't work at all and even Acrobat or Reader will be a crapshoot.

An alternative format to PDF is HTML5. Have a look at InDesign's Publish Online; you can produce documents with the kind of interactivity you want, the only disadvantage is the user has to be online and you can't monetise the content.
The other possibility is in5, an InDesign plugin (at extra cost).
