    I searched on the InDesign help pages and found:

    "Where the document will be viewed partly determines the file type to choose. Here we focus on two options: PDF and Publish Online.

    The Export dialog offers two options for PDF: print and interactive. The Adobe PDF (Print) format includes minimal interactivity and is intended for printing, while Adobe PDF (Interactive) includes most kinds of interactivity and is intended for onscreen viewing.
    Choose File > Publish Online to publish any InDesign document to the web and share it on social networks, over email, or as a standalone URL. The online document supports all of your InDesign document’s interactivity."

    So, probably it's not possible to combine the two. I really think that's a huge bug. I'm not a programmer, but this seems to be an easy thing to handle, extra checkbox "Allow viewers to download the document as a pdf file (interactive)" !!!

    @Nita... and? Do you have such a dialog box? I don't. During the Publish Online process, I only have a checkbox allowing viewers to download the document as a pdf file (print).

    @Nita But that means you have to save the InDesign file as an interactive pdf. That's not what I mean. I have a document with links in it that I 'publish online'. When a customer goes to that location and clicks the links, everything works nicely. But, still online, the customer wants to download the file for later use, that downloaded pdf does not have working links anymore. And sure, I can send over the interactive pdf file to that customer I created out of InDesign, but the customer has to contact me first, that's not very user friendly I would say.

    Although it might be a very old discussion, I'm still encounter the same issue. Is there anyone that can explain in a simple way what to do to have both 'published online' interactive documents, as well as the downloaded pdf version of that same document with the interactivity?
