InDesign Animation and Interactivity

Thursday, May 20

12:15 pm - 1:30 pm Washington, DC (UTC-4)

If you’re curious how InDesign can create engaging interactive documents, this is the session for you!

We’ll start with a quick overview of exporting an interactive document out of InDesign (including Interactive PDF, Publish Online and in5/HTML5). Then we’ll explore InDesign’s rich toolset for adding buttons, hyperlinks, and animation. We’ll take a look at what’s involved to 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 frustrating, join this session and look again.

We’ll cover techniques for creating:

  • Buttons to show more info and to trigger an animation
  • Pop-ups
  • Animated bar charts to make cool data presentations
  • A hamburger menu for page navigation

(And… if you want more interactivity, stay for the next session!)
