Easily export to interactive PDF forms. Use up and down keys to navigate. I mean, you interact with it while you’re reading it, right? PDFs are of course great for books and documentation.
While PDFs can be used for printing, they also have interactive features that make them great for forms, brochures, and prototypes. The versatility of the PDF format allows you to create documents that contain interactivity, including movies, hyperlinks, bookmarks, page transitions, and buttons. Let’s add some interactivity to a document and export it to an interactive PDF file. Now, I’m beginning this video with the Interactive Elements . So when you choose that option, it’s going to display the panels associated with that workspace.
And we’re going to start off by adding some hyperlinks to our document. I’m going to go ahead and go to the hyperlinks panel, and I’m going to click on this Pluralist logo here. And we’re going to come down here to our hyperlinks panel, and I’m going to click on the Create New Hyperlink button. Now, this allows me to define where this hyperlink’s going to go. I can use a URL, an email address, a file, a page, a text anchor, or a shared destination. We’ll just go ahead and type www. Now, the shared hyperlink destination is turned on by default, and usually I would encourage you to turn that off unless you’re going to reuse the URL multiple times.
So in this case, I’ll go ahead and keep that turned on. I’ll go ahead and click OK, and you can see that now we have a new hyperlink down here. Now, sometimes it can be helpful if you come up to the Panel menu and choose Rename Hyperlink and give it a more relevant name. And we’ll click OK, and now at least you can tell what that hyperlink is doing. Now I’m going to navigate to page two and I’m going to do the same thing to this logo.
Now, this time when I create my new hyperlink, for the link to, I’m going to change that to Shared Destination, and then I can choose the Adobe URL that I created previously, so I don’t have to re-type it in. We’ll go ahead and click O. And I should also point out that you can create a hyperlink by highlighting text as well, but obvious hyperlinks that are implicitly displayed are typically going to get converted automatically when you go to the PDF format anyway. So we’ll go ahead and leave that as is, and let’s go ahead and now add some bookmarks.
So I think what I’ll do here is I’m going to go to the Pages panel and I’m going to navigate to Page 4, where we have our backpacks. Now, I’m going to open up the bookmarks panel and I’m going to click on the Create New Bookmark button. I’m going to call this bookmark Backpacks, and I’ll press Enter, and then I’m going to go ahead and go to the Pages panel again. We’ll double-click on page 6, and I’m going to create a new bookmark again— this one’s going to be Chairs.
