Engaging Interactive Documents

Tuesday, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

InDesign has several different features for adding interactivity to your documents, including buttons, slideshows, and animation. But these features have been around a long time, and sometimes you need to think outside the box to use them effectively. In this session, we’ll take a look at the “trickery” involved in producing a series of interactive effects, using some obvious, and not-so-obvious techniques. If you’ve tried InDesign’s interactive features and found them lacking, join this session and look again.

We’ll cover techniques for creating:

  • animated bar charts
  • a hamburger menu for navigation
  • “panning” image stills
  • pop-up windows
