In this chapter we're going to continue our look at interactivity that you can create in InDesign and output to PDF. We'll start by building an interactive table of contents that appears just when you want it, and it allows you to navigate to any page from any page in your document. Then we will see how to build the navigation system that you can roll over to see a thumbnail preview of a page and then go to it. We'll also look at some of the button functions that work only in PDF export, things like the View Zoom and Print.
And because sometimes you need to combine the functionality of SWF and PDF, we'll also look at combining buttons and multi-state objects to get a SWF slide- show working and looking great in a PDF. We'll also look at a few aspects of working with videos, including placing a video from a file, placing a video from URL, and setting navigation points that allow you to click to jump to any point in the video. (music playing) And finally, we'll take a look at the pluses and minuses of having InDesign make hyperlinks automatically from URLs in your documents.
