  1. Publish Online: Comment Mode NEEDED! :)

    I think in order to compete with the other tools out there, CC needs to add Comment Mode into their Publish Online feature. That way we can share documents with clients and partners and have them provide feedback right there. Please think about doing this, and soon :)

        • Enable surveys to be embedded in Publish Online documents.

          It would be great, since many people use PublishOnline to generate newsletters and other similar types of documents that are sent to a large audience, to be able to input simple responsive forms (essentially surveys) of 1-5 questions that send answers back to a programmed space either within PublishOnline's dashboard or to a designated space. Or, allow us to embed suveymonkey javascript survey code somewhere so we can track it that way. I was recently asked if I could add a one question pulse survey to my newsletter I create with PublishOnline and can't find an easy solution without just…

          • Add an Auto-Page Advance Transition. After a Delay. Page should advance automatically to next pg

            To make a presentation 'Auto' play like a movie. This seems like a simple feature to add.

            • 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.

              • Please add # of downloads to the analytics for Publish Online

                Analytics should keep track of how many people download the PDF of published document. This would be extremely helpful, and I haven't seen an improvements since Publish Online was introduced.

                • GDPR regulations demand that data collections turned of on the Publish Online feature for my client upload to their website.

                  Even though Adobe claims to be up-to-date with GDPR regulations, I need to know how to turn all data collections off in InDesigns "Publish Online" feature, for my client to actually use the asset that was created for them. With the new GDPR regulations, they can not publish anything online that collects any kind of data.

                  Please explain how I do this?

                  • "Go back to a specific page"

                    "Go back to a specific page" - meaning if I have text links in the file and move from page 10 to page 110, give me an easy way to return to where I came from. In this case, page 10. Like a back button navigating through webpages. This is for PUBLISH ONLINE

                      • 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.

                          • Enhancements in Publish Online

                            Publish Online feature is quite good, but it'll be good if we have the below additional features:

                            (1) Option to edit directly the contents and update the preview
                            (2) Option to add the viewer comments like doing in PDF
                            (3) Option to attach the files, usually will be as PDFs and TXT formats
                            (4) Option to import the comments as mentioned in (2) into respective InDesign files
                            (5) Option to adjust minor style elements

                            Please let me know, if you need any clarifications on the above given details.

                            • Allow password protection on published documents

                              Separating this from hosted service, because I suspect moving to a hosted service is a bit more complicated. Having password protection would help folks monetize published documents and be a step toward security.

                              • 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 :)

                                • 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!)

                                  • Publish Online: Toggle Thumbnails

                                    1. Publish Online: I would like to have the option to show Toggle Thumbnails automatically - to show Toggle Thumbnails in the first initial view.
                                    2. This would be valuable to those who are not familiar with these Published docs. They do not search for the Toggle Thumbnails option and will never know that they can jump around within the doc.

                                    • No transition effects to assist loading pages with identical backgrounds.

                                      By default Publish online introduces a fade on page load even when there are no transitions applied in InDesign. This interferes when you use multiple pages to spoof the appearance of navigating within a one-page environment.

                                      When I export to PDF the background isn't redrawn so the appearance of the linked page appears smoothly. Publish Online is clunky when loading the next page as it momentarily goes black and then fades-in the page items.

                                      A bit of background .... I've created a page with a number of rollover buttons, then a duplicate of that page which is navigated to (x10)…

                                      • Add Anti-Alias Intent to text for graphic export

                                        As web publishing has been an important part of InDesign since 5.5, it would be extremely helpful if anti-alias intent could be determined, either at a paragraph level or on output. Both Photoshop and Illustrator have this feature, and without it, export jpeg and png for web use is not up to publishing quality.

                                        Relatedly, when an image is placed in a document at a scale other than 100%, it would be helpful if the downsampling/upsampling intent could similarly be chosen by the user.

                                        Currently, the only way to produce publishable web materials from InDesign is to export a lossless…

                                        • Noms de domaines et adresses IP à exclure

                                          Chaque fois que je souhaite publier un document online, j'ai une error#22.
                                          Mon équipe technique a testé de nombreuses pistes, mais sans succès.

                                          Pourriez-vous nous communiquer la liste des noms de domaine et adresses IP à exclure de nos analyses de sécurité pour publication d'un document Indesign ?

                                          Merci d'avance.
                                          Cordialement,
                                          Françoise
