  1. 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…

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Lyft background check?

    It is an honor to be able to join the Lyft driver community, which sounds like one exciting environment. I am currently in the course of getting through the application steps. As I go through all the steps, I have thought about the thoroughness of Lyft with respect to what it looks for in a background check. While doing some research, I stumbled across this informative article (https://consumerattorneys.com/article/what-does-lyft-look-for-in-a-background-check), shedding light on the subject. I am very sure that your collective wisdom can provide more details.

    Just for those of you who have firsthand experience in driving for Lyft…

  9. Download HTML master from Publish Online

    It would be nice to have the possibility to give sort of a HTML "master" with all the animations, buttons, interativities, etc. as can be seen in the uploaded document. That way, this master could be storaged where the client wants: own server, own PC, historical arquive in their web or wherever they would like.
    Also, it makes it easier in case the designer/agency using Publish Online breaks parts with the client, breaks parts with Adobe, ends activity for good or any similar situation. And I'm pretty sure it would also be cool for Adobe to not have all that…

  12. Publish Online - repeated issues and lack of certainty with platform

    Don't know if this is the right place, but Publish Online service is variable. Continued messing with the interface and uncertainty about what Adobe's going to do next means that I now will have to purchase Ajar In5 and also rent some server space to put my docs on because of the problems I've had with Publish Online interface and also comments from some of Adobe Community forum members that say it's foolhardy to rely on Adobe to continue supporting Publish Online because it's 'free'.
    Unfortunately, this means that rather than having Illustrator and Photoshop under my subscription, these will…

  13. Password Protection for Online Publishing

    It would be incredibly helpful if, when publishing a pdf online - for both personal or professional use - there was an option to add a password protection to the link, so that if a link to an important document were to be shared, only those intended recipients - those with access to the password - would be able to access and view it.

  14. Allow upload of alternative PDF for download

    An essential option really, to allow a flat non-animated version of the online publication that's being viewed.

    As we all know any level of animation or pop-ups elements will end up on the downloadable PDF version making it almost useless.

    Unless anyone knows a workaround?

  16. Full screen mode while in portrait view on iPhone and other devices

    It might just be my olddd iPhone 6 but portrait view always leaves navigation bar and footer bar on screen when viewing.

    Now until responsive layouts become a feature (wish), then if we want to create a portrait layout publication/document for viewing on a device, full- screen doesn't happen for me and others. It would nice to be able to enable this, as in landscape view.

  18. Change pasteboard / background page colour

    The dark grey isn't always best!

    Often a page may have a dark background which doesn't sit will on a dark pasteboard background.

    An option to change this background colour even if from a limited palette would be good.

  19. Online document pre-loading / slow first screen animations

    When a viewer first accesses a published document the first screen or cover page can be slow to load.

    Often we include animated elements here and they will stutter and glitch on first loading in any browser.

    Is there a way to pre-load the online document before it appears so the viewer doesn't experience a poor animated first page?

  20. 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…
