Are you aware that Flash Player will be closed down by the end of 2020? You may need to find a substitute for SWF, not a way of making them.

Use InDesign's Publish Online, in5 or FXL ePub (all these run on HTML5, Flash is obsolete).

InDesign is NOT the tool for animation. Not even slightly. Even less now that you cannot use SWF files in InDesign, nor anywhere else after 3 months from now. Suggest you reconsider your plans.

Publish Online is something you export to directly. See https://helpx.adobe.com/uk/indesign/using/publish-online.html

in5 is a commercial add-on. Google will find it.

Thank you. I found IN5 and see it is quite expencive. I will check out the other parts of my adobe pack if there are options already included. It is just for simple banner ads with a little animation, so nothing advanced. That is why I thought about using indesign initially.

Abolutely not for InDesign. Not for banner ads, not for animation.

Since SWF is going away the only format for simple animation on a web site now is GIF.  One tool that can make animated GIF (a special kind of GIF) is Photoshop, which is often the preferred choice for web banners too.

"i want to make swf file from indesign with interactive buttons. than k u for reply" That may be what you want, but you need to change your plan today. Flash Player is going away FOREVER in less than a year. SWF is really, really dead, and that is why InDesign stopped making it. (Imagine if it still made a PDF and suddenly at the end of this year all your work stopped without warning!) No, give up SWF completely.
