Chapter 13. Interactive PDF > Rollovers and States

Rollovers and States

Multimedia designers love rollovers. A rollover is an image on an interactive page (like a PDF or the Web) that changes in some way when the user moves the cursor over it. The rollover may appear to change color or shape; or maybe it lights up to indicate that it’s a hotspot. When you move the cursor away, the image returns to its original form. InDesign supports both normal rollovers and twostate buttons (buttons that change when you click on them). It also lets you make “two position” rollovers—where you roll over a button and an image changes somewhere else on the page.

We use the term “image,” but rollovers can involve text or lines as easily as images; it’s up to you. However, if you are using images, you need to create the graphics for each state of the rollover: the original image on the page (the “off” state), and the image you see when the cursor is over the image (the “on” state).
