  2. Publish Online should include a print option + spreads with Two-Up Continuous (Cover Page)

    Published Online files should include a print option that sizes a page to a printable option. Currently if I upload our publication (a coupon book) to Publish Online and we try to print the page shown on the screen it crops most of the page regardless of the browser used. You can shrink your window and sort of get the desired result, but we don't think most of our readers will know how to do this. Also it would be nice to be able to select a page range of what to print. I know you can include a pdf…

  3. Add option to share direct link to specific page in PublishOnline

    We love PublishOnline but feel it is missing a "jump to page" feature or "share direct link to specific page" feature. This way, when our publications go live, we can share direct links to specific articles on social media or with clients without forcing people toggle through each page to get there. pretty please? It would help us out immensely.

  4. extend publish online to live outside Adobe servers

    would be great if publish feature allowed the same presentation to be hosted on another site (Company X,Y,Z internal network) but keep all formatting the way it is

  5. Give Indesign Online Flipbook features

    I would love to use PublishOnline instead of paying for Issuu separately, but the flipbook functionality is abrasive (not smooth page turning). If it could have a better page-turning feature (ideally options for how the transitions happen) I would be willing to look past the loss of other features.

  6. MSO Hidden Default State

    Currently, to revert back to an MSO not being visible after one or more of the states have been active, you have to create atop-level "blank" state that contains an empty frame of some sort, and show that state.

    This seems like a workaround that should be built-in. Maybe a few new choices can be added to the "Show/Hide" options in a button's choices:


    • Reset "X" MSO to invisible state

    • Rest all MSO's to invisible state

    ...or something similar.

    Thanks!!

  9. Publish online Magazine

    Publish online needs to be able to tell the difference between spreads and single pages. I publish a magazine using publish online and with the page numbers at the bottom, it looks like it is half as thick as it is. or have an option to take the page numbers off since they are in the magazine and I don't need them on the web page.

    It would also be cool if when animating the magazine in InDesign there was a page flip, though I do like the way I do it now because it's different, it would be cool…

  10. Show description text when choosing existing document to update.

    The Publish Online feature has been really useful for my company--we create brochures for specific clients or potential clients, and provide them access to the electronic version of the brochure.

    Most of our brochures are based on a single template, but are altered slightly to meet the needs of the specific client. We always enter a fairly generic document title in the Document Settings fields of the Publish Your Document Online window, because that title is shown at the bottom of the page when the document is accessed by the end user.

    We then use the "Description" window to capture…

    To Adobe

    First thank you for all the excellent programs. The latest feature that has excited me is "Publish Online" in In Design. Here, everyone - especially Apple's unreasonable blockages - is removed.
    Especially the blocking of iFrame that is the prerequisite for opening youtube.

    However, a very crucial feature is missing in InDesign / Publish Online. You can not use a membership function (as far as I know), such as Paid Memberships Pro in WordPress, and it is crucial that, for example, as a producer of educational materials, I can get a necessary earnings.

  12. Allow spread view documents published online to be downloaded as single page view pdf's.

    An InDesign document in a spread, 2-page view format that is published online turns into the same spread, 2-page view when it's downloaded as a pdf. It would be nice to add a control in the online version to allow the view to select one or two-page formats in the pdf that they downlaod.

  13. Note field with published files

    In our company we create several versions of our brochures made in InDesign, based on the type of client and job. The title for the various versions needs to be identical (Design Brief from XXX) so it's time consuming to identify the correct file for a specific client. If we were able to add notes for ourselves for each file that would be helpful. Ideally these notes would be visible for us on the Publish Online Dashboard, visible right there with each of the titles of the published files.

  14. Allow Changing User Options for Documents Already Published using Publish Online

    I have published several documents using the Publish Online feature in InDesign and then decided to change how readers interact with the online publication, i.e., allow download, allow sharing, etc. when such options were not indicated initially. Right now it looks like the only way to change the options is to re-publish the document and indicate the new options. It's a nightmare, particularly when a document published just fine the first time around, and generates error messages in trying to re-publish. I hope there's an easy answer to this.

    Need More Info  ·  Anonymous responded

    Wanted to understand this a little more.

    Currently if the user tries to re-publish a document the user has 2 options, either “Publish New document” or “Update Existing Document”.

    Choosing Update Existing lets the user update an already published document, such that the URL generated remains the same. So in effect this should work very similar to what has been described here as a problem.

    Can you try this out (if not already) and let me know how this works for you.

    Thanks

  15. the option to rename a Publish Online link

    Would be really useful to be able to rename the generated link for a Publish Online document so that when a client/customer clicks on the link to view in a broweser window or downloads a pdf it has the correct name of the publication.

  16. Folders within dashboard

    Would be good to be able to organise published documents into folders. Like many users, we are piling up documents and need to get more organised with them. One long list isn't helpful

  17. When choosing to link a button to a page, remove hard coding of links to a page even if it gets moved.

    I have discovered an "error" or possible limitation of an existing feature when linking to pages through buttons.

    For example, I set a button to go to page 9. Later I drug that content to a new location in the document (page 2), thus changing it's page number. However, the button no longer went to the content that was now on page 9, it jumped to the content that was original there when I set that button.

    Can we have the set page number option just link to the current page even if content was moved around after setting up…

  18. Please allow multiple indesign files to be published as ONE published online magazine

    I have magazine of 80+ pages which i have completely designed with multiple files as you would do in any magazine design and i thought in the end i would just combine all the files into one BOOK format and publish online. But to my misery that option doesn't work with online publishing. Imagine tomorrow the magazine needs to give live for an event and now i have to create a new single file and copy paste all the pages into the new file and keep checking if all the interactive features are working fine. Thanks Folks at Indesign for…

  19. Online InDesign document for client text edits — like InCopy but online without the need for technical know-how or files to move around

    I wish there was a way to post InDesign files online that would easily allow proofreaders, editors, clients or anyone without a lot of technical know-how to log in and make text edits. Freeing up designers from spending countless hours making text edits.

    We tried InCopy, but we store files on a shared server and move files up and down through a project management tool. Being able to properly move the InDesign and linked icml files was way too confusing for our writers and proofreaders and out of the question for clients.

    When we work on PPT presentations, we post…
