I have a need to create interactive brochures that will fit various size/makes of iPads and have the following requirements:

- to fill and display full screen automatically with no browser window

- be able to swipe horizontally to swap between pages

- automatically change between landscape and portrait layouts

Please can you tell me the output settings required when I export from InDesign using in5?

  • This is actually a security limitation of the device/OS. You cannot launch to full screen without some sort of user interaction. You could have a landing page with a button that launches the page you want fullscreen (user interaction).
  • Choose "enable swipe navigation" on export (and slider horizontal to view the movement of the pages)
  • Set up alternate layouts and use the responsive feature to have it switch between orientations. https://ajarproductions.com/blog/2020/04/09/how-to-create-responsive-layouts-using-indesign-in5/
