Interactive PDF buttons not work on export.

I've created a doc where my buttons link to their designated bookmarks. All my buttons are setup the same, in the same document, the only difference is which pages they link to. I have redone this process twice, however, only 2 of the buttons don't work. All the others work perfectly, except 2 of them.

 

Any ideas on how to fix this? This isn't the first time I have output issues with the latest version of CC for InDesign.

 

Asking for a friend. 

Buttons linking to pages 9 & 10 are the issues, I've also shown a screenshot of a button that does work (page 7) which links fine.

You can have a word or words or an image (such as a button shape) as a document hyperlink to say another page in the document, or to an external website.
Some devices, for example, iPads, don't have rollover capability – only click – you should avoid multi-action buttons  like On Click, On Roll Over, etc.  Multi-state object (MSO) don’t work at all in an Interactive PDFs.

Hi Derek

 

The weird thing is that it works perfectly fine on all the others. It also works perfectly fine in all my other documents. It is literally just the 2 that doesn't work. With this latest version I have also had PDF output issues where a completely different spot colour shows up on output, but is nowhere to be found in my document.

 

I'll try uninstalling and reinstalling an earlier version to see if that helps. If not I'll need to try the hyperlink method.

Hyperlinks seem to be the only solution. Thank you Derek.
