Where do you go from here? Well, I couldn’t cover everything you can do in an interactive document, unfortunately. So I would check out the Page Transitions panel (Window > Interactive > Page Transitions) to add some cool page transitions such as sliding, fading, and more.

Also, check out the Object States panel. This panel allows you to create slide shows and show/hide content (among other things). To learn more about how to work with the Object States panel, open InDesign help (Help > InDesign) and search for “Create multi-state objects.”
