While PDFs can be used for printing, they also have interactive features that make them great for forms, brochures, and prototypes. In this course, InDesign insider David Blatner tells you what interactive PDFs are, why they're so useful, and how to make them yourself with Adobe InDesign and Acrobat. Learn to make hyperlinks to websites, other pages in your document, and email; add buttons that navigate, show, and hide content; create a form with check boxes and text entry fields; and embed audio and video. Plus, discover how to add polish with calculations, page transitions, and more.
Thanks for coming along with me on this InDesign Insider Training about Interactive PDFS and how to make them in Adobe InDesign. But you know, there's always more to learn. More techniques, different perspectives, and if you haven't watched my InDesign Insider Training: Beyond the Essentials title yet. I hope you'll check it out. Also, for more about digital documents and e-books, you should watch Mike Rankin's InDesign Interactive Documents title, as well as his project-based title called Making an Interactive PDF Magazine. And while it's not about PDF, I also recommend Anne-Marie Concepcion's title called InDesign to EPUB, Kindle and iPad. Finally, I want to encourage you to visit my site, indesignsecrets.com, where there are thousands of tricks and tips about InDesign, including many and one of my favourite topics Interactive PDFs.
So perhaps I'll see you on InDesignSecrets forums or may be in person at PEPCON that print any publishing conference and when we do meet, tell me about the interactive PDFs that you are creating. I'm sure they're going to be awesome.
