Join Mike Rankin for an in-depth discussion in this video Previewing EPUB interactivity, part of InDesign CC 2014: Interactive Documents.
- Whenever you're working on something new…in InDesign, it's a good idea to test and preview…what you've created before you output.…That way you can spot mistakes early on…and save a lot of time and trouble.…This is why InDesign has features for checking print…projects like Overprint Preview and Separations…Preview, and when it comes to interactivity…and eBooks, you can also preview your work…before exporting with the EPUB Interactivity Preview Panel.…Let's take a look.…Here I have a document that's an artist…portfolio with a few different kinds…of interactivity that work in an EPUB.…
On the left I have an animation…so if I select that and go to my Animations panel,…I can see that the author's name is set…to fly in from left on page load.…If I select the text frames at the top,…they're also set to animate so they'll fade in…on page load after the artist name,…and the main feature on the page is an interactive…slideshow with buttons that control a multi-state…object where each state is a different painting…and caption from the artist portfolio.…
