I have created an interactive document with page transitions. The document has buttons, animations, and other media. The problem is two fold:

 

When exported as an EPub the page transitions do not work while all other animations, buttons, and media function normally.

 

When exported as an Interactive PDF and opened in Adobe Acrobat the page transitions DO work BUT none of the buttons, animations, or other media function AT ALL.

 

When published online the page transitions do not work but everything else does work just like with the EPUB.

 

Is there a way to export this document that allows all the media (page transitions, animations, buttons, etc) to function?

This is expected behavior. Page transitions are for "Interactive" PDFs. I put in quotes, because there really is no such thing, in the sense that the user must have Adobe Acrobat, be on a desktop, etc, so many restrictions. I recommend you use Publish Online instead. It's already part of your InDesign app, and you can incorporate so many of InDesign's interactive features with it. Check out these examples: http://bit.ly/PubOnCollection

Also, like to add that page transitions are very "old style." Don't recommend trying to incorporate them into your project, no matter the publishing format.

I find these features useful for presentations, thus allowing me to (1) use a professional design tool and (2) avoid Powerpoint, possibly the worst "standard" tool of all time, all categories.

 

Some subtle transitions are appropriate for presentations, but yes, the spins and wipes and slices are pretty... Powerpoint 2003. 😄
