  2. Slow publication analytics loading

    Most of time our analytics / statistics pop-up is VERY slow to load. Sometimes it doesn't load at all.

    Can it be speeded up. Is there a reason its slow?

    (PS I don't mean the 90 minute update lag, I mean any figures showing at all)

  3. 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. Copy/ paste elements with actions without reversing order of actions

    Allow copying and pasting of elements with actions attached to them without reversing the order of the actions that were copied. This would result in a huge boost to productivity.

  6. WEBP - Please add an export option in InDesign to save as <FILENAME>.webp

    Please add an export option save as webp.

    Hello, I do a lot of my flyers and promotions in InDesign and have been exporting them as PNG for years. So instead of me saving the file as PNG then opening the file in Photoshop and exporting as webp, having an export webp feature in Indesign would a better streamline workflow.

    I've read that webp is a better solution for web graphics Webp in 75% lossy format is a better looking and compressed file than PNG it will save loading times on my website and eblasts.

    See my PS exports from…

  7. 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.

  8. "Publish Online" change viewer language

    The default language for the viewer is English and can only be changed from the viewer. As our clients are germans, it would be very helpful to set the language to German (or any other language) while publishing online.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  12. Publish Online

    Option for making navigation button NOT ANIMATED, maybe even larger. I recently had a huge project rejected because client did not know how to navigate and assumed others would have the same problem. (URL to project was embedded in button in email campaign--works great!)

  13. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. Reinstate the Publish Online button in the top bar please!

    This shortcut button to the Publish Online function was one of my most frequently used, and for some strange reason, in the latest version 18.5, it has been removed.
    I can't see any reason why it can't remain where it was, very conveniently situated in the top bar beside the Share button.
    The new option slows down what was one of my most frequently used functions... I do hope this isn't just 'change for change's sake'??
    Anyone else find this change unecessary and annoying?

  17. searchable publish online document

    InDesign documents published through Publish online should be searchable by option F. I am uploading chapters of a my book that are much less valuable if they cannot be searched.

  18. Android Chrome - publish online incompatibility.

    Publish online is a great idea with a brilliant future and I love it. Hope Adobe will continue to update it although I am not so sure. Most major browsers on Safari Firefox Opera Chrome Mi on desktop or mobile Windows IOS and Android, look they r working fine. There are issues with Android Chrome which in some countries is a big issue. (browsing a published document with Android Chrome control bar next-previous buttons appear instantly and then disappear and can't bring them back, touch, zoom seem not to be working either and browsing freezes)

  19. 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

  20. 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!!
