Adding Interactive Elements to Your InDesign Docs

Wednesday, June 07

2:15 pm - 3:15 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 really use these features well, you sometimes need to think outside the box. In this session, we’ll 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, this session will make you want to take a second look.

We’ll cover techniques for creating:

  • Pop-ups: We’ll make a map with icons to click for more info, in four different ways, using animation, buttons, and lines
  • Animated bar charts that make data presentation “cool”
  • Hamburger menus for page navigation, both an animated menu and simple Next and Previous page buttons
