Hello, 

 

I'm trying to create a interactive pdf with some buttons. 

When I try to create a button, all my settings seems to work like changing opacity on the hover ect.. 

but the action script is not working.. I tried the previw Epub and SWF, it does appear as a button, the hover is working but when I click on the button nothing is happening... 

I wanted to create a button menu that redirect into a new page so I choose " reach a page" , I also tried to create button as " next page" and " previous page". Neither of them are working... Only setting colors, hover is working..

I tried to export it and test it, and it does the same as previews... 

Do you know how can I resolve it?

 

Many thanks in advance

SWF / Flash is obsolete.

Rollover buttons on PDFs will not work in many devices, use simple hypelinks.

Note: the "button(s)" can be a URL, or a word or words, or even an image, such as a button shape with the word "button" or whatever, on it. It just shoudn't be a multi-state button to be reliable.

The difference is: when you create it with the buttons panel and give it an action it will not work (well some do, most don't), if you right click on an element and then choose hyperlink (or select the object and then go to the Hyperlinks panel) you can create a link and (page) destination, that will work.
