InDesign Animation and Interactivity

Thursday, May 12

11:15 am - 12:15 pm Washington, DC (UTC-4)

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 and 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 frustrating, join this session and look again.

We’ll cover techniques for creating:

  • Pop-ups – we’ll make a map with icons to click for more info, four different ways, using animation, buttons, and lines
  • Animated bar charts to make data presentation “cool”
  • A hamburger menu for page navigation, both an animated menu and simple next and previous page buttons.
