How to export interactive pdf?

pls help me,how to export interactive pdf?

Hi Vijay,
you can use following commands to export the interactive PDF
InterfacePtr<ICommand> pPDFExportCmd(CmdUtils::CreateCommand(kInteractivePDFExportCmdBoss));
if (pPDFExportCmd == nil)
InterfacePtr<IInteractivePDFExportPrefs> pExportPrefs(pPDFExportCmd, IID_IINTERACTIVEPDFEXPORTPREFS );
if (pExportPrefs == nil)
instead of
InterfacePtr<ICommand> pPDFExportCmd(CmdUtils::CreateCommand(kPDFExportCmdBoss));
if (pPDFExportCmd == nil)
InterfacePtr<IPDFExportPrefs> pExportPrefs(pPDFExportCmd, IID_IPDFEXPORTPREFS);
if (pExportPrefs == nil)
and then set the export options through api IInteractivePDFExportPrefs
Hope this helps.

  • How to export interactive PDF to web

    I used InDesign 5 to create an interactive document...I saved it as an interactive PDF.  I opened it on my computer...looks great, works great.  But I cannot figure out how to upload the doc as to the web and preserve the interactive capabilities.  I have uploaded it to ISSUU, Goggle Docs, and my wordpress website.  The result is just a read only PDF - no interactive elements.  Can anyone help me? 

    Any service which converts the PDF into another format (Issuu, Google Docs, etc) will remove the interactivity. You should simply transfer the PDF to your website as a regular file, and either link to it or use an HTML <embed> code to display it. Linking is better as it will avoid error messages for people who don't have a PDF reading application installed.

  • InDesignCC. How to keep image quality with exporting Interactive PDF?

    Hello everyone, I'm using InDesign CC, I'm exporting a PDF that has PNG images, the problem is that I'm loosing the sharpness and the pureness in the images after exporting the file into PDF Interactive... the Settings I'm using for Image Handling are Compression: Automatic , JPEG Quality: Maximum, Resolution PPI: 300..
    The file size is "Letter" with web Intent (792px x 612px) the images I'm using are big and have great quality, can anyone tell me how I export into PDF interactive without loosig images quality? I want to keep this pureness and sharpness in the images
    Thanks in advance

    It depends on the image. Best way for us to advise you is to open your image, then go to Image > Image Size and upload a screen capture of the Image Size box with the readings.
    What you might have working against you is not enough pixels. Upsampling may just make it blurred. But we will see.
    300 ppi is also not carved in stone, you may get away with 200 ppi depending on where you are sending it for printing.
    And lastly, if you are paying a commercial printer to do this, it's best to consult with them and see what they can do.

    Hi frenchiem,
    This is due to the PDF file cannot display the original fonts. To fix it, creator should create the PDF file with the embed font option enabled. Thus, user can open the file on any platform with the same layout. Or the Acrobat product can display them after you install the appropriate font support package on the client side.

  • Anyone know how to export a PDF from InDesign so it is "click to go to next page" instead of "scroll to go to next page"?

    Anyone know how to export a PDF from InDesign so it is "click to go to next page" instead of "scroll to go to next page"?

    I don't use the latest InDesign, but in the past ID's options for exporting to PDF did not allow setting how a PDF should be viewed once exported.  However, these settings can be adjusted in Acrobat through Preferences: check out Page Layout and Zoom under Page Display.

  • InDesign | Mystery/unwanted form function appearing in exported Interactive PDF

    I am working on a project for a client that is a large interactive PDF with navigation, built in InDesign.
    On a recent version, exported PDFs on opening say "This document has form data that must be filled out" even though we have built no form function into the IDD document. When I click to "highlight fields" in the PDF, and scan all the pages, nothing is highlighted.
    Does anyone know what is happening and how I might be able to track down and correct the issue?
    Many thanks

    For anyone arriving here with a similar problem, the solution is to export the Interactive PDF from InDesign with password security to restrict all changes on the exported PDF. This will eliminate the 'forms' message from appearing when opening the PDF.

  • URGENT indesign fails to export interactive pdf of 700 pages

    Hi everyone!
    This is my first time asking directly for help in the adobe forum, but god nows how many times i found good advice here before, searching for answers to rather simple AND complex questions.
    My problem is:
    I have a book made out of 17 files, summing a total of 706 pages.
    This entire thing is supposed to be interactive - kind of a "consult on the go users manual" for in-house use at a company.
    when i export the book in its total to an interactive .pdf (smallest version, 72 dpi) at about 405 pages it just stops, says that "an error ocurred exporting the .pdf file" and shuts down exporting (not the program though). (It also does not specify the error nor give an error report. it just stops and deletes the half-created pdf-file)
    BUT if i export every file on its own as an individual interactive .pdf it works just fine and no problems appear.
    my question now is: maybe indesign just not capable of exporting such a large interactive file? (with "only appearance" checked, it works just fine)
    the larges file we did in the studio was about 350 pages long - and if i export the book in "2 sessions" (two documents of 350 pages) it takes quite a long time (about half an hour after getting past the last page) but in the end it works.
    i thought about combining the various individual (working) pdf documents - but the links/buttons/etc. get all messed up.
    has this happened to anybody?
    does anybody know how to solve that problem - and if not, if there even is a way? at my understanding right now, it is just not possibe to export an interactive pdf of more than 400 pages from indesign.
    supposedly i have to turn that document in tomorrow midday (european time) so it can be saved onto usb-pendrives for distribution... but right now i'm VERY lost.
    i'd appreciate some advice, and even if it is a straight "it's not possible, too large of a document" would be nice just to get things in my head a little clearer and confront the client with what's REALLY posssible and what is simply not doeable.
    p.s.: despite all the problems (mainly caused by outrageous client/marketing demands) nobody will ever get me hating on inDesign - just gotta looooove that program!

    i ended up changing the system after talking to an adobe engineer as she told me that given the high page number and the awfully heigh number of buttons // links per page (from 10 up to 35) it seemed to be a problem for the program to process all that info. not because of the computers "strengths" but simply because of the complexity of the document.
    now i ended up conserving only a few links and resolved the rest with "markers" (is it called like that in english? -> the ones that appear in the sidebar of the .pdf in acrobat and let you jump directly to the page to which they referr)
    Thank you for all your support and quick answers (i didn't think it would be that inmediate!).
    Definitely going to pay more attention to this forum and give a look around to see if i can help somebody too.
    See you!
    p.s.: i thought of that option, but at about 6-12 cross-document buttons per page in a document of 700... i didn't want to get into that mess. if the document weren't as complex it would have been the solution!

  • Exporting Interactive PDF with MP4 File

    I am trying to export a file from InDesign for work.  We send out daily email with PDFs from InDesign and would like to include from training videos.  How can we include the MP4 format video so we can watch them in the PDF we send out.  I've read through the Interactive PDF guides and forums.  A still image of the first frame of the video appears, we can't get it to play.

    While including an MP4 video is good if you know the recipient is using Acrobat/Reader on a desktop computer, the content may or may not work on a tablet or smartphone. I'd go with Wilhelm's suggestion of providing a link.

  • Export Interactive PDF scales page...

    I've created an interactive PDF in InDesign using the latest version (7.0.3) and while everything works just fine, videos play as expected and such, the pages themselves are being scaled up, which is causing some terrible alaising. I'm setting the layout as 'For Web' with a 1024x768 document size in Indesign. Then I export to the interactive PDF using the defaults and in Reader I need to scale it to 66% to make the same size as in InDesign at 100%. Any ideas why the scale issue, I'm completely stuck. Thanks-

    I guess I wholeheartedly disagree on that point then. When I design motion graphics, I have the control over how it looks (i.e. I know a DVD by its resolution and aspect ratio) I have the control over how the printed page looks when I create ads for magazines (i.e. I know the final page size, line screen and color gamut) and when I create a website I have control over the CSS tags on how to display the graphics on the screen. In every other instance you have that benchmark of control through standards and calibration, so the 100% on one *really* should match the 100% on the other, that's all I was asking for. Then when users scale the page, that's fine, they know they are scaling the page (and things might not looks as good), but if the graphics look poor at 100%, then they tend to blame the designer.
    I suppose it could use vector art in the PDF it would be a non-issue, but in this case, I'm re-purposing bitmaps from another project (that I didn't create) so the aliasing and such from the scaled page drove me nuts. I'm much too much of a control freak to allow that to be ok or to expect the user to adjust their displays. We all know that most users (99%?) leave their programs (and TVs) at the default settings, so at least I'd like the know that upon initial opening that there's some expectation of controlling the experience. I guess maybe interactive PDF isn't the method for me. Thanks again though for your help and insights.

  • How to create interactive PDF in Acrobat Pro 11 from Indesign 6 on a Mac and keep all interactivity?

    I've seen much discussion on this topic or issue.
    I have a 175 page doucment that needs an active TOC, urls that link, buttons that "go back to TOC" on each page and "to next page - to previous page". You can only see the functions properly in Acrobat Reader.
    What's up with that? That doesn't work for my deverse client base.
    Is it because this was a file originally created in ID 5? I ask because I have since created a new file, exactly the same way with the same interactive attributes as the file that doesn't work and it works fine.
    Is my file too many pages for Acrobat to handle?
    Please help, my contract depends on this file working.

    What you're asking for is perfectly achievable, but it won't work universally. The page count is immaterial.
    Table of Contents entries created in InDesign are automatically converted into links when exported to PDF, provided the hyperlinks option on the PDF export dialog has been checked. They should work fine in any desktop software.
    Buttons which link to a fixed page and 'next page/previous page' buttons created in InDesign will use a link method that requires JavaScript - this is fully-supported in the Acrobat Family on desktop platforms, but third-party renderers such as Firefox's internal viewer, and mobile PDF apps, have little or no support for scripting.

  • How to export a PDF including all of the borders?

    I am very new to InDesign.  I have only used it a handful of times and am unfamiliar with setting up pages.  I was given a file and I have to export it.
    The problem is that, when I export it as a PDF, a small part of the image is cut off on each page.  I have attached an image showing this.
    The outermost red "border" does not export.  Only the black "border" and everything inside the black border export.  I want to export everything, including the parts of the image included in the outermost red border.
    It is only about .125," but it is part of the bleed area, and if it doesn't export, everything is too close to the edge.  Does anyone know how to export everything, including the outermost red border?  I apologize if this is obvious.  I am just not well acquainted yet with the program.  Thank you very much in advanced.
    Operating System: Mac OS X (10.9)
    InDesign Version: CS6

    The .125" bleed will be cut off, so if you think some elements are too close to the edge when the bleeds are NOT exported, you will still have the same appearance when the bleeds ARE exported because the bleeds are meant to be cut off at the document (trim) edges.
    Although that is true, I am uploading the image to a website, where you can preview the file before it is printed.  Without the bleed, the website automatically creates a new bleed, using the final trim size, so everything is closer to the edge.
    When I export it with the correct bleed and upload it to the site, it is correctly displayed, if that makes sense.

  • Pages: How to export a PDF suitable for print-on-demand

    I need to be able to export a PDF from Pages that will meet the specs for the IngramSpark or Lightning Source Print on Demand programs. They require a PDF that has all fonts fully embedded in one of these two PDF versions:
    PDF/X-1a:2001 or PDF/X-3:2002
    Does Pages export - either through the export function or Print function - to either of those specs and does it embed full font sets?

    The reason neither Pages, or Swift Publisher nor most of the low cost DTP apps do this on OSX is because they use Apple's muddled print output. It almost but not quite outputs to PDF/X-3:2002, and even there there are caveats.
    Indesign and QuarkXpress use their own print engines and Scribus uses GhostScript.
    GhostScript is available for OSX. I have not tried this so you are in wide open territory, but experiment to see if it fixes Pages' output. My suspicions are that GhostScript may not capture Pages' output before it has already been through Apple's muddled output.
    There are other problems with Apple's approach. No specifiable defined colours in Styles. No spot colours, and no proofing. ColorSync itself is powerful but undocumented and difficult to tailor. You can run the end result through Acrobat Pro's Press Check but it only picks up the errors, you are on your own trying to fix them.
    The only easy to use, low price DTP application that meets your requirements is Serif PagesPlus, which runs only on Wimdows. You can run this in BootCamp or some other virtualiser.
    Adobe lets you effectively hire Indesign CC by the month so may be a cost effective solution in the short term. It is a professional solution but has a professionally difficult interface.
    Some reading matter on the subject: 208ceb-8000.html NB the reference to "buggy", hence my description above of almost does it.

  • Indesign cs6, export interactive pdf

    When i export my interactive document to pdf, the result is not working well. All the roll over buttons are blinking when the mouse cursor point on it. also i have problem with layers. the appearance of layers is not as same as file, so some images go under other.
    I have no problem in preview and it works well in preview but when i export to pdf the result is catastrophic. 
    Is there anyone have a same problem? Or anyone know what i am doing wrong?

    I am having the same problem. Here are my screenshots. In Acrbat 10, in the layers pane, the layers names show up correctly, but in the actual graphics of the PDF, the layers are displayed in the reverse order.
