Adobe InDesign: Feature Requests

When entering a new feature request, please provide:

1. Description
2. Why is this valuable to you?

Thank you.

  1. Allow password-protected hosting, and hosting from a non-Adobe server

    These two features would go a LONG way to making Publish Online a viable format for professional publishing. I'm sure many clients would pay an extra fee (nothing outrageous) for a self-hosted solution, if that would be necessary for Adobe to commit resources to make this happen.

  2. Publish Online for INDB (book) file

    Please extend Publish Online to Books. I use recurring elements as chapters in presentations and would like to publish online instead of exporting and transmitting PDF files.

  3. Allow different users to update the same document on the publish online feature

    I currently work on a team of three designers, and we sometimes work on each other's files. Currently, if there is an update to a file that has been published online, and we need to upload a new version of a document, we have to figure out which of the three of us originally uploaded the file and have them update it. It would be easier if we could update each other's files rather than asking the original designer to stop what they are doing to update a project.

  4. Expand PublishOnline Analytics

    I absolutely love PublishOnline. Is there a plan anytime soon to add to the analytics capabilities with Adobe PublishOnline anytime soon? The features on the dashboard for all published documents are great, but it would be even better to have those same analytics broken down by document - not just views and readers. I'd like to know how much time is spent, for instance, in a newsletter I've published vs. a catalog or flyer. And it would be great to know which documents tend to be read more on tablets vs desktop, rather than all of them as a whole.…

    Thank you all for your support on this feature request. Evidently, stronger analytics, would ensure better decision making.

    I’ll be reaching out to some of you to gather more inputs on this feature request.
    Your feedback will go a long way to help us define the feature better.

  5. Download interactive PDF from Publish Online

    I have posted an INTERACTIVE document on Publish Online, but when it is downloaded, all the interactivity is stripped out. What is the point of posting an interactive document if you can't download it as an interactive document! I have had to create a workaround to include a button IN the document that leads to an interactive PDF that I had to post separately on Google Drive to allow people to download the working PDF.

  7. Update the analytics feature on the Publish Online Dashboard so you can see all the individual analytics for each document

    Currently on the overview you can see many analytics for all your documents combined, but on the document trends screen, only views and readers are available. It would be helpful to offer our clients more specific analytics.

  8. Allow removal of the "publish online" button that appears when you embed a published InDesign document.

    Allow removal of the "publish online" button that appears when you embed a published InDesign document. This can be distracting to users and potentially direct them away from the content they are viewing.

  9. publish online accessibility

    Since the web has accessibility standards and guidelines, the documents created and hosted online using Publish Online should follow those guidelines, at least the most basic parts.

    For example, a screen reader cannot read out any text on the pages because all the text is embedded into images. This makes the documents unusable for anybody with vision difficulties.

    Please consider adding an option to create these files with the actual text saved as HTML paragraphs, headers, lists, anchors, etc. This would make it suitable for the web and much more appealing.

  10. InDesign CC - Publish Online - Change of Background Color

    It appears you cannot define the background color of the webpage that delivers the EPUB image.

    My catalog has the same color as the background so my pages blend in with the background.
    InDesign > Preferences > Interface, will change the background in the InDesign file but once uploaded it defaults back to the dark Gray

  11. InDesign Publish Online Available Offline

    Would it be possible to create a PublishOnline PDF that supported all the features and functionality of a PublishOnline document but without browser restrictions.

    Currently we love the PublishOnline and use it for professional client work but it is limited due to cross browser compatibility issues and limitations.

  12. Remove the menu bar from Publish Online when in full screen mode and make sure any remote clicker device can be used to present.

    Several users in our practice would like to present animated InDesign presentations using Publish Online.
    However nobody likes the menu bar appearing across the bottom of the screen, it's very distracting for anyone presenting onscreen.
    Also, most people presenting onscreen would use a remote clicker to move through the slides, as you would in a PowerPoint presentation. However the remote clicker does not work with Publish Online. I would say that I could move our entire practice, with over 1,000 users over to Publish Online from PowerPoint if these two major factors were addressed. It's a shame because they are…

  13. Forms!

    Please make a form options in Publish.

    And a cool thing would be if you could see the "data" of the form under the Analytics tab.

    No more sending out pdf forms, that would defiantly be nice :)

  14. Team memberships: Have a central place for all publications to be published online accessible for all to edit/get stats.

    Team memberships: Have a central place for all publications to be published online accessible for all members to edit/get stats. When members leave an organisation and you delete their membership, you can't go back and access the publications they published online.

  15. Allow upload of separate PDF

    It would be nice if we could choose the PDF to be available for users to download. Sometimes interactivity creates pages that don't look good in PDFs. Sometimes companies simply have different PDFs they'd like to be downloaded.

  16. Publish Online: comment mode

    It should be possible to comment on specific parts of the page. Like in www.invisionapp.com So it could be possible to discuss an artwork with my client. Like I'm doing with PDF-comments at the moment. But in this case I could reply and discuss more. (show more than one versions of one page would be excellent!)

  17. Sharable Publish Online Dashboard

    I would like multiple users to be able to update on a single dashboard. We like the idea of being able to update an existing link instead of replacing it which can be a lot more work. Currently, if we link a published file to our website and only one person can update it that's a problem, for obvious reasons. The single file might be linked in multiple places and turn into a tedious workload.

    I'm wishing for an upgrade for InDesign to do this and make this tool even more powerful, it will be awesome!!

  18. Allow background colour change when documents are published to publish online.

    Allow background colour change when documents are published to publish online, so when they are embedded on external sites they don't just sit on an awkward black background.

  19. Provide the ability to hide specific pages in Publish Online

    First off, this whole issue revolves around the fact that there are left and right navigation arrows built within the Publish Online interface.

    In the document I'm currently making, I am using my own custom navigation arrows within my document. I have set these arrows to skip over certain pages because they will be accessing them through other buttons (in short, these navigation arrows I've created won't be leading them in a linear fashion through the document.

    These work fine, but the only issue is the OTHER arrows that are actually a part of Publish Online's interface. These cycle straight…

  20. Publish Online: Sharper elements

    InDesign seems to convert vector-based elements (linked eps/AI etc.) in JPGs when I publish online. But that's not sharp. Even with 144dpi (Retina Display …). But text is sharp … Is it possible to have alle the same sharp?! (if not the clients ask: why is the text sharp and these elements not?!) Maybe convert to svg or show a PDF …???
