- [Instructor] Let's see how we can repurpose…our print newsletter as a screen newsletter…and add some simple interactivity.…I should say here that this is repurposing it.…This is not designing a screen PDF…to really take advantage of the screen,…because our pages are vertical and a screen is horizontal.…But it's a lot less work…than redesigning the whole newsletter again…in a separate orientation.…So, first of all, let me come to my master pages…and then to my Layers panel.…
I've added a layer called interactive.…I'll turn that on.…On this layer I've added some triangles.…I'm now going to convert these to buttons.…I need a couple of panels…that are not currently part of my workspace.…So I'm going to come to the Window menu,…Interactive, and choose Buttons and Forms,…and drag out the Buttons and Forms panel.…And then back to Interactive and choose Hyperlinks.…I'll drag out the Hyperlinks panel.…
