I am creating files in InDesign to be published to the iPad (teaching a class on it, iPad Publishing.) Everything has been working great and I have been really impressed with the students works. All the dynamic components really add to the file- like hyperlinks, audio, video, pan & zoom, panorama…. BUT the one dynamic content piece I can not get to work are buttons! I can hyperlink and link buttons to go to URL’s but I can not get them to work when linking to another file within the same folio. I have tried all the different options in the Buttons and Forms panels but nothing works (for example: Go to Destination, Go to State…) I am also previewing the file at the top level of the folio and even when the file is published to Adobe Viewer it is still not working. Does anyone know of an update or technique that I am missing to link to other files within the same folio?
I had to get my computer re-imaged and re-install Adobe CS6. Since I have done so I can’t get the folio producer to work. When I open the folio producer it tells me “A software update is required to use Digital Publishing Suite. Please go to the Help menu and select Updates to get the required software.” O fcourse, when I go to updates it is grayed out. I tried heading out to the Web and grabbing different updates but nothing will work. Below is a screen shot of my issues. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
I finally included an Adobe Edge file into one of my free-lance Website jobs. The actual file works great and I don’t have to worry about it not working on iOS devices or the slow load time which occurs with a Photoshop animation file. Unfortunately, I did come across two issues in which I hope to find help fixing. Below is a link to a “draft” of the home page (“draft” – still not complete, hence the off alignment and missing text at the bottom) and the two issues which I am having….

1. Border: I can’t seem to remove the black border from the file. I found the two icons which you are able to change the stage color and border color in Edge. You can see from the left image they appear to be black and gray, I changed them to be transparent and I save the file. I close the file and quite Adobe Edge and open everything back up again and the color keeps reverting back to black and gray. I even tried to change the colors to red rather than transparent and no matter what they revert back to black and gray. You can see the border when you visit the link above. I also tried to look in the exported files to remove the border but that did not help.
2. Multi-Screen Viewing: I have this page set up to re-size depending on the screen size which the file is being viewed. If you view it at a tablet size you will notice the Edge file (scrolling animation piece in the middle) does not re-size itself but rather adds scroll bars. In the Edge file I tried to change the “overflow” properties but nothing gave me what I needed. Also in the Dreamweaver HTML file I set width=”100%” and height=”100%” Is there any way to make the edge file re-size itself and exclude the scroll bars?
Any guidance on either issue would be greatly appreciated!
P.S. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!
