"Go to page" Button not supported anymore when exporting PDF? – October 2021 Update

I'm working on a corporate presentation that needs to be exported as an Interactive PDF.
I've got the Index that needs to be interactive and take you to the corresponding pages, so I'm using the button "go to page" for each item... I also have a link to the index in every page of the presentation, in order to go navigate quickly through the document.

Until last week everything worked fine, but since Friday 22th it stopped working!
I wonder if I should directly change software (and use something like Keynote instead) because it seems that InDesign is more and more deficient for interactive PDF export.

Please help!
Thank you so much

It should work – how are you viewing the PDF?

Are they simple hyperlinks?

For some kinds of presentations you may find Powerpoint might suit you better.

If you use this method it will work perfectly.

Highlight (select) a word or words or an image in your document and select Type > Hyperlinks & Cross-References, select LinkTo: Page and insert the page number you wish to link to.

Export as an Interactive PDF.

Hi Derek, thank you so much for you answer! It actually works, but I also found another way to do it: I bookmarked the page I wanted to be linked to the buttons and then just added the action "go to target" -> bookmark
Sorry for my english, I hope everything is clear!
Thank you again,

Hm. No. It should not work.

"Go To Page" is a feature for Fixed Layout EPUB and Publish Online only.

 

Instead add new hyperlink page targets in the Hyperlinks panel first and then point your button with a Go To Target action to a certain page target in the document.

Hi Derek,

the order of answers here is a bit wonky because of the indented replies.

My reply was meant as a reply for your first reply. Especially for that sentence:

"It should work – how are you viewing the PDF?"

 

It was not meant for your detailed reply later showing a solution with hyperlinks.

That of course will work.

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender
