Exploring on your own

Now that you’ve created a simple PDF form, you can explore a little further by creating other kinds of fields and by creating your own custom-designed buttons.

1. Create a text frame and then use the Buttons And Forms panel to convert it to a Signature field. A Signature field in a PDF form lets the user apply a digital signature to the PDF file. Assign the field a name and then export an Adobe PDF (Interactive) file. Test the signature field by clicking it and then following the onscreen instructions.

2. Use the Ellipse tool (Image) to create a small circular frame. Use the Gradient panel to fill the circle with a radial gradient. If you want, use the Swatches panel to change the colors of the gradient. Use the Buttons And Forms panel to convert the frame into a button. Assign the button the Go To First Page action. This will display the cover of the four-page newsletter when clicked in the exported PDF file. (To test this button, make sure to include all pages and not only page 4 when you export an Adobe PDF [Interactive] file.)
