I've created an interactive PDF, which I've also published online. When I export from iD to Interactive PDF, I get all the interactive features. Buttons, hyperlinks, navigation, menues, etc. When I publish online, the online version has all this, too. But, while viewing the published, online version, when I download the PDF, all the interactive elements are stripped from the PDF. Is this a browser thing? Or, is there somewhere I can adjust settings so the from-online-to-download version comes out just like my Export > Interactive PDF version, with all the interactive elements?

 

Thank you.

You can not include an interactive PDF for download in a Publish Online document. The workaround is to post the interactive PDF to a web accessible site, then in your Publish Online document, create a link to newly posted PDF.

Thank you, Jeff. Great tip. Is this new? Seems like I was formerly able to download the fully functional PDF after publishing online. 

 

My settings are below. Is this as much as I can do (your tip, notwithstanding)?

The High Quality preset, when exporting interactive elements will retain hyperlinks, but will not include interactive elements such as buttons.

As far as I know, the Interactive format has never been an option for Publish Online download PDF.

So, a visitor can download a semi-interactive PDF using the High Quality preset.

Exactly, the High Quality Preset is designed for print,  not to be interactive
