Hello,

 

I'm relatively new with adobe programms and english isn't my first language, so I hope I can properly explain my problem.

 

What I want is to create an interactive pdf for a little project. In there I want a group of a rectangle, a line (no contour) and a little Icon to enlarge proportionally when the mouse hovers over it. When I want to do it with just one object, it works just fine. But when I want to select the whole group it only selcts one part of it.

 

Is there a way to select the whole group? I tried doing it by pressing control, but then everything got deselected.

 

I hope there is a way and that maybe someone can tell me about it?

Hi defaultupe82xizdrfz,

the solution is simple:

The [Rollover] state of your button must contain the scaled elements.

 

Starting from scratch:

[1] Group all elements you want to see in the [Normal] state of your button.

[2] Create a new button from the group selected using the Buttons and Forms panel.

There is a "Convert To Button" button at the bottom of the panel.

[3] Click into the [Rollover] state of your button.

That will duplicate all contents from the [Normal] state.

[4] Select the [Rollover] state itself and not the button: use keys Shift + Esc

[5] Scale the selected contents.

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender
