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.
In this title, I'm going to move relatively quickly. Focusing just on InDesign's interactive features, and what you need to know to create and export interactive PDF files. But before we jump in, I need to explain that I'm assuming you know InDesign at least reasonably well already. You need to know how to put text and graphics on a page, what master pages are, how to put stuff on layers and so on. If you're new to InDesign, I strongly recommend that you take a look at my title called InDesign Essential Training here in the online training library. You might even want to review my title, InDesign Insider Training: Beyond the Essentials.
These will give you the foundations to really excel in this course. Without further ado, let's dive in to InDesign Insider Training interactive PDFs.
