Hi,

I am making an interactive file in Indesign and adding animations/links/buttons etc to the file. When I export it to an interactive pdf and view it on Adobe Acrobat, the links work correctly but the animations no longer work. It becomes a static piece. However, when I select Publish Online in Indesign instead of exporting, the animations work. Unfortunately, that option won't work for what my job needs this file for so is there anyway for me to export the interactive pdf and have the animations function correctly?

You can't have animations in a PDF - use InDesign's Publish Online, which is HTML5.
