Buttons for Digital Publishing Suite (DPS) Part II

Some button actions will work for DPS, some won’t. Let’s take a closer look.

Buttons That Work:

  • Go to Destination
  • Go to First Page
  • Go to Last Page
  • Go To URL
  • Go to Page
  • Go To State
  • Go To Next State
  • Go To Previous State

Basically, (excluding the PDF Only commands) all of these are “Go To” button actions. None of the other ones work. Let’s go through them and figure out why these actions won’t work.

  • Go to Next Page / Go To Previous Page: There’s already built in navigation in DPS for these sort of thing.
  • Show/Hide Buttons : Button visibility states aren’t honored. You can’t “Hide Till Trigger”, so you can’t hide/show buttons.
  • Animation: It doesn’t like SWFs. Objects set in the Animation Panel won’t animate in DPS, so there is no point having an animation button action.
  • PDF Only: well… it’s PDF Only.
