  • Folio Builder Lab Locations

    Ask IT Icon NewASK IT Question:

    Hi,

    I need to be able to create interactive PDFs in InDesign, but the computers in the library don’t have the required updates (for folio builder). Where can I go to do what I need to do for class? I know a couple of classrooms in C have them, but those are usually in use for class time.

    I’m pretty desperate – please help!

    Hi Kate,
    Thanks for your post.  I was able to gather some info for you from Academic Computing:
    “Folio Builder is part of Adobe Desktop Publishing Tools (for InDesign)
    It’s in cc15a3, c232, c302, c304, and c306.

    Hope this helps!

    Dear Alice,

    We tried to contact you will the email address you provided us with, but it came back as a non-valid address.

    Online resource sometime become outdated. In this case the current version of AutoCAD is version 2014. Hence the version you are trying to open is 7 releases behind. The owners (the two websites) needed to have updated the samples files/resources.

    Autodesk may allow up to 2 version backward compatibility, and probably not 7 versions.

    Consider talking to your instructor about the issue.
