Join Adobe InDesign and publishing expert Mike Rankin as he explains how to use InDesign to design a wide range of digital documents, including interactive PDFs and apps for the iPad. This course provides a tour of digital publishing trends and shows how to bring these trends to bear in various projects, such as a slide presentation, a PDF form, and an interactive portfolio. Mike also introduces the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite and shows how to publish dynamic interactive documents to the iPad and other mobile devices.
The final step in our interactive documents workflow is to use the Content Viewer app on a mobile device to download a published document and view it. So let's do that on an iPad. Here on my iPad I've installed the Adobe Viewer app which you can download for free from the App Store. I'll tap to open it and I come to the Library View where I can see my documents that I've previously downloaded. In order to download a published document I need to sign in with my Adobe ID. Once I'm signed in I can see all the issues that are available to me.
Here is the Roux catalog and I can view it. The catalog opens and we have all the same controls for navigating and viewing the content that we did in the desktop viewer application. I can swipe to scroll through different pages, I can tap buttons to navigate to different articles, and I can use overlays like this frame that contains scrollable content. I'll go back to my other article and scroll to the last page where I have web content overlays. I can tap it to show the Roux Academy web site, open and close the pages, and I can use the Google Map.
I can tap to reveal my navigation controls and navigate my different articles. At the bottom I can use the scrub bar to go from one article to another and I can tap the button at the top right to scroll through my articles and see the properties that I set. The title is what's in white, the description is over the article and the byline is under the title. So there you have it. We took some InDesign documents, added interactive overlays, and published them in a folio to the iPad.
