  1. Activate HTTPS and Youtube links

    I know, there are many complains about no possibility to use https links for media files, but would be great to add not only them, but Youtube links also.
    I have downloaded 15.1.2. version, and the problem still not resolved. This is very sad, that so cool option as an interactive pdf-file loses sense.

  3. Allow Articles Pane to scroll to add more items easily

    I'm working on a document that has many articles to drag into the articles pane. It's far too easy to accidentally drag a new article into an existing one because you can't scroll up to show enough blank space in the pane. Why is there no slider in the pane so there's enough room to drag new items?

  4. Possibility to ignore stroke type in object styles

    Whenever you export EPUB with some object style you have made, it always comes with a border style. For example, border-style:solid;
    In cell styles it's possible to ignore the stroke type so it would be great if same can be done in object styles.

  6. EPUB Exporting option (Merge paragraph styles option)

    EPUB Exporting option (Merge paragraph styles option)

    I am making book layouts and facing an issue during the Epub export. I have book chapters that use two paragraph styles. The first style is for line one, "Chapter X" and the second paragraph style is for the next line with the chapter name. I can't use the same Paragraph style for both lines because they should be formatted differently.

    My question is, can you add a feature that allows using a chain of paragraph styles to create an Epub table of contents? The chain can use the very first style formatting…

  7. Display a button's multiple actions/events

    If we are able to add multiple events to buttons, the only way we can see those actions is to pro-actively switch to that event (via the Event drop down in the InDesign Buttons and Forms panel) or by exporting an interactive PDF and viewing the actions in the button's properties dialogue box in Acrobat.

    Ideally, if an object is turned into an interactive button, the panel should change to reflect that. Within the new space, if a button is applied an action via the event drop down, line items should appear similar to the way actions aggregate. Another method…

  8. INDESIGN EPUB REFLOWABLE not exporting spaces between pages and text

    ERROR/BUG INDESIGN EPUB REFLOWABLE:

    There is an error that the reflowable EPUB does not export the spaces between pages and texts.
    This implies that you must go to other software to do so.

    More detail of the error in case No. ADB-11233384-C2H4

    No one from your technical team could solve this yet.

    PLEASE IT IS VERY EMERGENCY TO CORRECT THIS

  10. In the 'EPUB export warning(s)' dialog box, make the problem description copyable

    Sometimes when exporting a book to EPUB, the 'EPUB export warning(s)' dialog pops up.

    The most obvious action for the user is to examine his documents to figure out what went wrong.

    But that dialog box is modal. The user must close it before proceeding.

    Sure, it would be nice to make that dialog box non-modal, so that the user could look at their documents while having the problem descriptions available.

    Lacking that feature, though, you could make it easy to copy the problem text to another app (such as Windows Notepad). You allow the first step: Letting the user…

  11. Exporting ePub options - more needed and open direct to selected readers...

    When exporting an ePUB, give the option to export as "iBooks friendly" or "ADE friendly" or "Google Play friendly" and automatically preview the epub in the chosen app. The reason this is needed is because, currently the enhanced epubs that you can export from InDesign work through iBooks but literally NOWHERE else. Google Play throws back errors that don't make sense and do not support some of the features that InDesign exports, such as javascript. And ADE does not have consistency across the android version and the Windows version and is riddled with bugs. The windows version doesn't read fonts,…

  13. Image Object page break

    Make a page break for an image object become a separate page/xhtml doc in epub export. Not just something in the code, but an actual page, so that that if I say page break before image or after or both, it separates the image onto it's own xhtml doc and truly breaks it. Just like the split page export option in a para style, this would be helpful for objects to be treated the same way.

  16. EPUB Interactivity Window resize

  17. Export vector objects as .svg in ePub

    When exporting to ePub, please include an option to export vector objects as .svg instead of automatically rasterizing them. .svg objects is supported in ePub so there's no reason not to have the option to export vector objects as vector objects.

  18. EPUB export with common settings fails validation

    If you specify in EPUB (Reflowable) Export Options that CSS should be "Relative" instead of "Fixed," InDesign adds unnecessary "absolute positioning" attributes to the CSS which fails EPUB 3.x validation. If you change it to Fixed, then the images resize incorrectly.

  19. Have a delay option for looped preset animations

    I want to animate a button using the 'pulse' preset I want this to be on loop but with a break in-between (say 1 second delay) before the pulse animation loops again. Right now when I click on loop animation and preview it just screams for attention and thats not what I want. I just want it to pulse 'looped' with a second delay before it does it again. Also it would be great if you could specify how large the pulse animation goes. As sometimes it is quite large.

  20. ePub presets

    Export to ePub presets, like there are for print and PDF. Kind of a "best practices" export reset that could be customized for periodical projects.
