Adding Interactive Elements to Your InDesign Docs

Wednesday, June 07

11:15 am - 12:15 pm Phoenix, AZ (UTC-7)

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 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, 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
