InDesign CS6 has a fix that makes life a lot easier for people who are creating interactive PDFs, like I do quite a bit, and that is that you no longer need to laboriously split your spreads into single pages after they've been exported to PDF. That was a little glitch in CS5 and 5.5 that they finally fixed. Let me show you what I'm talking about. Right now we are looking at a three- page-brochure kind of thing, and it's been set up as facing pages, because that's a default for print documents.
Now, let's say that I was creating an interactive brochure, and I want to export this as single pages so that I can have Next buttons and Previous buttons work correctly. In previous versions, I couldn't do that, but in InDesign CS6 if you go to File and choose Export and select Interactive PDF, like this right here, you'll notice that there are two new radio buttons up here for pages and spreads. You can choose whichever one that you want, and we can finally create single-page interactive PDFs, even if the document was set up as facing pages.
