I am well into my second day of trying to create a multi-page document with transitions between pages. I choose transitions (I want to push up) and no matter what I do I end up with a document that slides left to right. If the program contains transitions and allows you to choose which one you prefer then why in the heck don't they work? I notice there are multiple people on here with the exact same problem. One post even claims the problem was solved, which after my reading it wasn't. I can supposedly spend more money for a plugin and that's fine but it still does not answer my very simple question ...why include transitions in the InDesign program if all it really can do is slide left to right? It makes absolutely no sense to me. There should be a workaround or a trick ... there are the transitions, choose which one you want, and away you go.

 

You would think.

I think that's more or less true for Interactive PDFs – as mentioned, in5 (the HTML5 plugin for InDesign) does offer transitions.

Derek, I am using the latest version of InDesign (I have a subscription for everything) and I am using OS Big Sur 11.2.3

 

I have tried every single output format avaialble.

 

One question ...does this have anything to do with Flash?

Previously many of the PDF transitions were Flash based.

so basically these transitions I've been trying to get to work simply do not work anymore because Apple stopped supporting Flash.

Most of the page transitions should work for PDF but only in full screen and only with Acrobat or Reader.

Not a transition effect, but one solution for vertical scrolling to experiment with – you can export your document as a Single Page Continuous PDF and put a button shape (not a roll-over button) to go to next / previous page, this would allow pages to slide up and down.
