  1. Predetermine Adobe .pdf settings for Publish Online Documents

    I post interactive documents in a double page spread with Publish Online, but when it is downloaded, all the interactivity is stripped out and it downloads as single pages. What is the point of posting an interactive document in a spread format if you can't download it, as an interactive document in spread format!

    I would like to be able to predetermine the .pdf download options before publishing online ie double page spread with (cover page) and choose the interactive elements to be included. That way when they press download .pdf it is downloaded with all the interactivity and in…

  2. analytics

    We would love more in-depth analytics for publish online. We would love to see analytics on individual pages but also can we see views via IP address? My employer often looks at the document and we would love to be able to exclude his data and mine from the analytics.

  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. Allow full functionality for publishing online - blend modes, page transitions, etc w/animated objects

    I've been working with a new media document that has video, sound and artwork to export as an interactive graphic novel - When animating objects, blend modes are not retained. Page transition feature - "turning page" also not supported.

    Spoke with adobe and verified all tonight... he said "I'm trying to do something new". XD I could see this being very useful for graphic novel designers and other new media applications in the film and streaming space as well - would love to have this functionality in the next update so I can finish this project!

    Have found no other…

  7. 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…

  8. 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?

  9. "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

  11. Make links shortened or create your own

    The links are too long, difficult and don't look professional for wide sharing. It would be great to be able to customise your own link.

  15. Toggles in Dashboard for published content

    Introduce zwo Switches/toggles for "Hide the Share and Embed code" and "Allow PDF-Download" within the dashboard for an already published document so it doesn’t have to be republished every time one wants to change any of these options?

  16. Fix Javascript errors on all Publish Online documents

    Every single Publish Online document throws a Javascript error. The error code seems to be the same for every document. The below was taken from 'Five Days from Nowhere', an Adobe example document used on the Publish Online documentation. The issue is that this Javascript error makes it impossible to add any custom Javascript as any subsequent code will not execute when the document is embedded in a different environment. This is a big issue for example for implementing Google Analytics Tracking codes into iframes.

    [Error] Error: [$rootScope:inprog] http://errors.angularjs.org/1.3.0/$rootScope/inprog?p0=%24digest

  17. Make Publish Online Autoplay and Loop

    I am preparing a presentation for a museum. I already have it set up in InDesign, and have shared it to stakeholders via Publish Online. However, it needs to run on a loop and flip slides automatically – because of COVID, viewers can't touch the screen. Adding a feature to time each slides's appearance and set to infinite looping would solve this, and avoid me having to recreate it as a video – similar to exporting an interactive PDF. Thanks!

  20. "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.
