  1. Export correct unicode spaces to epub/html

    Logging this as a new feature, but it could also be a bug? Also logging this under "EPUB" since thats most important to me, but it also affects "HTML"

    Currently the only space characters exported by InDesign are the regular space and the non breaking space. All others are converted to regular spaces on export. These spaces should be retained in the epub, since they are supported by reading systems and in many cases it is typographically incorrect to use regular spaces.

    Spaces with direct Unicode mappings:
    Normal Space U+0020
    Nonbreaking Space U+00A0

    Em Space U+2003
    En Space U+2002
    Third…

  2. 画像やテキストのリンクについて

    画像やテキストのリンクで、仕様では絶対パスのみだが、
    設定で、相対パスも選べるようにして欲しい。
    WEBサイト制作時のように、
    同じような作品をいくつも作る際に、
    作品毎のフォルダ環境を同じ状態にしておけば、
    リンク更新せずに画像、テキストを自動的に
    拾ってくれるようになり、とても便利だと思う。
    今回サポートに質問させていただき、
    出来ないことに驚いている。
    あって当然の機能だと思います。

  3. Please fix the tab export issue in EPUB format! We're paying for a program that promises print AND flowable epubs but getting only half.

    I'm incredibly unhappy about paying so much money out of pocket for a program that does only half of what it promises. It promises print and ebook exports. Print works fine. Epub does not export tabs, indents, or line spacing. I've had your techs work on the program with a program file of mine after I showed them my work flow, and they took two weeks and couldn't do it. I did everything right, even according to them. Their solution was to have me get another program to do the job Adobe InDesign promises it will do but does not…

  4. Remember choice of fixed/reflowable epub

    When creating an epub, I shouldn't have to select between Fixed and Reflowable in the save dialogue each time. It should remember my choice for the document. And ideally this selection should be in the Epub info page rather than the save dialogue.

  5. Accessibility isn't anything new and when working in and on any creative industry product or campaign it should be considered from the off.

    I've received a Published Online PDF from a director who's sent a 27-page document that I need to read but as a dyslexic, I rely on using the 'speech' accessibility function built into my mac to allow myself to read this at a fast pace to keep on track with work and my colleges.

    You Publishing Online PDF documents don't allow the functionality for this to happen as you can't highlight the text within the document, a basic function on the most text on a computer and online. I think this should be looked at and I'm a little surprised…

  7. Activate HTTPS and Youtube links

    I know, there are many complains about no possibility to use https links for media files, but would be great to add not only them, but Youtube links also.
    I have downloaded 15.1.2. version, and the problem still not resolved. This is very sad, that so cool option as an interactive pdf-file loses sense.

  8. Adding interactivity for Windows 10

    Interactivity is not yet available for Digital Publishing on Windows 10 OS. Until it does, it would be great if inDesign had a panel where you could write code to create hyperlink and button navigation.

  10. INDESIGN EPUB REFLOWABLE not exporting spaces between pages and text

    ERROR/BUG INDESIGN EPUB REFLOWABLE:

    There is an error that the reflowable EPUB does not export the spaces between pages and texts.
    This implies that you must go to other software to do so.

    More detail of the error in case No. ADB-11233384-C2H4

    No one from your technical team could solve this yet.

    PLEASE IT IS VERY EMERGENCY TO CORRECT THIS

  11. Allow Articles Pane to scroll to add more items easily

    I'm working on a document that has many articles to drag into the articles pane. It's far too easy to accidentally drag a new article into an existing one because you can't scroll up to show enough blank space in the pane. Why is there no slider in the pane so there's enough room to drag new items?

  12. Possibility to ignore stroke type in object styles

    Whenever you export EPUB with some object style you have made, it always comes with a border style. For example, border-style:solid;
    In cell styles it's possible to ignore the stroke type so it would be great if same can be done in object styles.

  15. EPUB Exporting option (Merge paragraph styles option)

    EPUB Exporting option (Merge paragraph styles option)

    I am making book layouts and facing an issue during the Epub export. I have book chapters that use two paragraph styles. The first style is for line one, "Chapter X" and the second paragraph style is for the next line with the chapter name. I can't use the same Paragraph style for both lines because they should be formatted differently.

    My question is, can you add a feature that allows using a chain of paragraph styles to create an Epub table of contents? The chain can use the very first style formatting…

  16. Display a button's multiple actions/events

    If we are able to add multiple events to buttons, the only way we can see those actions is to pro-actively switch to that event (via the Event drop down in the InDesign Buttons and Forms panel) or by exporting an interactive PDF and viewing the actions in the button's properties dialogue box in Acrobat.

    Ideally, if an object is turned into an interactive button, the panel should change to reflect that. Within the new space, if a button is applied an action via the event drop down, line items should appear similar to the way actions aggregate. Another method…

  17. Exporting ePub options - more needed and open direct to selected readers...

    When exporting an ePUB, give the option to export as "iBooks friendly" or "ADE friendly" or "Google Play friendly" and automatically preview the epub in the chosen app. The reason this is needed is because, currently the enhanced epubs that you can export from InDesign work through iBooks but literally NOWHERE else. Google Play throws back errors that don't make sense and do not support some of the features that InDesign exports, such as javascript. And ADE does not have consistency across the android version and the Windows version and is riddled with bugs. The windows version doesn't read fonts,…

  18. In the 'EPUB export warning(s)' dialog box, make the problem description copyable

    Sometimes when exporting a book to EPUB, the 'EPUB export warning(s)' dialog pops up.

    The most obvious action for the user is to examine his documents to figure out what went wrong.

    But that dialog box is modal. The user must close it before proceeding.

    Sure, it would be nice to make that dialog box non-modal, so that the user could look at their documents while having the problem descriptions available.

    Lacking that feature, though, you could make it easy to copy the problem text to another app (such as Windows Notepad). You allow the first step: Letting the user…

  19. Export vector objects as .svg in ePub

    When exporting to ePub, please include an option to export vector objects as .svg instead of automatically rasterizing them. .svg objects is supported in ePub so there's no reason not to have the option to export vector objects as vector objects.

  20. We need collaboration between KDP and InDesign

    We need an Amazon-approved method of exporting Kindle books which will not be arbitrarily modified in KDP.
