I have a page with 5 different sets of interactive buttons that open and close frames on that page. I want to copy and reuse that page with modification for the other pages.
Will the modified pages be indpendent of the source pages? For example, when I click Button 1 on Page 1 will Button 1 on Page 22 also be activated. On their own these buttons look fine. I am not able to tell what is happening on the other pages.
I also have another similar document that was successfully created using DataMerge but I am not sure how the corresponding buttons on different pages will behave.
I want to avoid managing and creating interactions for hundreds of buttons if possible.
Yes, as Bob says, button actions only work on the current page/spread.
But I may be misunderstanding something. You want the buttons on Page 1 to be independent of Page 22, don't you?
One other thing to mention: if you have interactivity that involves the Timing panel, that will often get re-ordered when copying/pasting to a new page.
Diane and Bob: Thanks for responding. I am set because I want the buttons on the spreads to be independent. I saw the posts on timing issues but I don't use timing. Just clicks to operate Buttons and visibility changes.
You can put button shapes (not multi-state) on a Master Page (for a single page continuous PDF) that indicates Previous Page / Next page and (say go to) Contents and these will appear on all pages throughout the document (apart from those pages you don't want them to appear on).
