Rollover images "stick" in Interactive PDF
Hi, I am working on the document that contains multiple rollovers. All of them "stick" at one point or another, the images will change to "rollover" state but not to the normal state when hovering off. This is very confusing for the end-users. Please see attached pdf. I am using InDesign CC 2018.
Thank you all for reporting the issue to us.
We have concluded our investigation into the issue. As per our findings, the bug belongs to Acrobat and there is little that can be done at InDesign’s end.
We have already notified the concerned team, internally and they would be working on the same.
For now we are closing this thread for InDesign.

The rollover hovering mouse over a button doesn't work properly. I've created buttons in which the text color changes when the mouse is hovered over, and it does occur. However, the button doesn't always return to its normal state. I've tried multiple things: 1) adjusting button sizes 2) adjusting button placement in relation to other buttons 2) converting button into multi-state object (believe won't work for PDF)
Please hurry InDesign Team, we'd been waiting for a fix for years.

Having the same issue,, it seems that if I hover over slowly, then the problem is solved, but I cannot control the speed the user is going to rollover.

I’m on CC 2017 and this happens to me too, buttons loosing functionality. After troubleshooting it happens when buttons are anchored inline within a text frame. I believe normal anchoring with a text wrap is okay. I’m hoping to hear it get fixed in later versions. If it does please someone reply. This is such a pain doing interactive PDFs.

To my knowledge, this has been an issue for AT LEAST 18 MONTHS.
I've been having this same issue, and it doesn't seem to be on Adobe's radar despite the bug reports. I opened my doc in a web browser and the issue did not occur, so it is confirmed the issue is with Adobe Acrobat. Unfortunately using a web browser is a very poor workaround for me since my "Toggle Full Screen" button won't work and my users would need internet to interact with the document.
I've put a lot of time and effort into planning and creating this piece, so it would be great if the rollovers actually worked properly. This is creating obstacles for me and disrupting my users' interactive experience.
Version - Adobe InDesign CC 14.0.1
SWF preivew and E-pub all work fine with the interactive elements, all using clickable buttons that hide/reveal content on the page. Once exported to Interactive PDF not all buttons will hide/reveal the content they should. Also once clicked they sometimes disappear
Same issue here and it is ruining my interactive PDF document - should be such a simple feature of hovering over social icons to reveal a new state, then back to normal when rolling off. However, occasionally the icon sticks in its rollover state. This seems to be when rolling off in certain directions or at certain speeds.
I am experiencing this issue as well. It seems to occur when buttons are placed close together. The speed and direction of the roll off appear to determine whether or not the buttons get stuck in the roll over state.
