InDesign Workshop: Interactive PDF

15/03/2014 § Leave a comment

This week George took us through the basics of setting up and using an interactive PDF through InDesign CS6. We created 4 A4 landscape pages on InDesign and using the A-Master page tool we set them up with an image of Spiderman and a corresponding background. Going back to the first page (off of A-Master) we then inserted buttons to link the pages together – you can do this by changing your document settings to ‘Interactive for PDF‘. The tools for changing colour and settings of the buttons are all found under the ‘button’ tool bar option (which can be found in the Window drop down bar at the top if it’s not already visible) This is something i’ve done before so this workshop mainly acted as a recap for me.

On the rest of the 3 pages we inserted 3 more images and 3 chunks of text (sample text), save it and then export as a PDF. It’s really as simple as that!
