Engaging Interactive Documents

Tuesday, 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm Central

If you’re curious how InDesign can create engaging interactive documents, this is the session for you! InDesign has a rich toolset for adding buttons, slideshows, and even animation. But to use these features well, sometimes you need to think outside the box. 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
  • Creating a slide show
  • Pop-up windows
