Creating a flip hotspot

Post by Kathrin » 16 Jun 2014, 11:56

Hi everyone,
I have again a problem. This time I can't create a flip-hotspot (I am using InDesign CS6).
I created a normal hotspot on one page and this is working without any problems. I now did the very same thing on another page - only changing the name of the multi-state-object from "hotspot" into "-flip-hotspot" like it is explained in the helping document.But now after validating the exporter says that there is an invalid multi-state-object (my flip-hotspot) an it isn't working in the preview.
Can anybody help?
Thank you!

Hi Kathrin, This will not work in the Previewer in InDesign as this is an App Studio naming convention. To see it work you have to export the file to App Studio. Best, Dave
