I am trying to insert and run gif's in my 'interactive pdf,' but Leo is not able to raise his glass.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance for your response.

So, in theory, I can use gifs, but need to load it as an epub.

If you want to produce InDesign documents that include animations etc, that are easy to produce and work on most devices, have a look at InDesign's Publish Online (only available on InDesign CC2015 upwards).

The option 'publish' is very nice. The gifs work automatically. But, when pressing [Esc] the animations stop. Do you might know how to 'undo' [Esc] and let the animations run again?
