  1. Export to Adobe XD

    It would be fantastic, if the exchange with Adobe XD would be improved.
    This could raise InDesign to a new, more modern level. Complete web designs can be created much faster and better with InDesign than, for example, with the layer-based Photoshop or the confusing Adobe Illustrator. There is already an ePUB export, so it would be obvious, to implement an XD export. Or XD imports InDesign data, that would work too. Thank you and always think ahead!

  2. Publish Online: Comment Mode NEEDED! :)

    I think in order to compete with the other tools out there, CC needs to add Comment Mode into their Publish Online feature. That way we can share documents with clients and partners and have them provide feedback right there. Please think about doing this, and soon :)

  4. Option to have Analytics from Publish Online Dashboard emailed automatically

    I love the publish online feature and am using it to host a free emagazine I create every month and my client loves the analytics that are available for it but I'd love to see a way for me to have those analytics emailed to me automatically at certain intervals to make it easier for me to share them with my client and it would be even better feature if we had the option to email the analytics to emails other than just our own so I could have my clients receive their document analytics directly at the interval that…

  5. Add an Auto-Page Advance Transition. After a Delay. Page should advance automatically to next pg

    To make a presentation 'Auto' play like a movie. This seems like a simple feature to add.

  6. Publish Online for INDB (book) file

    Please extend Publish Online to Books. I use recurring elements as chapters in presentations and would like to publish online instead of exporting and transmitting PDF files.

  7. publish online accessibility

    Since the web has accessibility standards and guidelines, the documents created and hosted online using Publish Online should follow those guidelines, at least the most basic parts.

    For example, a screen reader cannot read out any text on the pages because all the text is embedded into images. This makes the documents unusable for anybody with vision difficulties.

    Please consider adding an option to create these files with the actual text saved as HTML paragraphs, headers, lists, anchors, etc. This would make it suitable for the web and much more appealing.

  9. 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…

  10. Team memberships: Have a central place for all publications to be published online accessible for all to edit/get stats.

    Team memberships: Have a central place for all publications to be published online accessible for all members to edit/get stats. When members leave an organisation and you delete their membership, you can't go back and access the publications they published online.

  11. Please add # of downloads to the analytics for Publish Online

    Analytics should keep track of how many people download the PDF of published document. This would be extremely helpful, and I haven't seen an improvements since Publish Online was introduced.

  12. 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?

  13. Stronger analytics on Publish Online docs

    Hi there Adobe, it'd be great if you could beef up the analytics for Publish Online, such that I can understand where my readers are clicking (jumping between pages), how long they're spending on each page and if they are clicking links out to other sites/documents that are linked in the doc. I'd like to understand which parts of the (quite large) docs I publish are most valuable to my readers. Thanks!

  14. "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

  16. Sharable Publish Online Dashboard

    I would like multiple users to be able to update on a single dashboard. We like the idea of being able to update an existing link instead of replacing it which can be a lot more work. Currently, if we link a published file to our website and only one person can update it that's a problem, for obvious reasons. The single file might be linked in multiple places and turn into a tedious workload.

    I'm wishing for an upgrade for InDesign to do this and make this tool even more powerful, it will be awesome!!

  17. Download interactive PDF from Publish Online

    I have posted an INTERACTIVE document on Publish Online, but when it is downloaded, all the interactivity is stripped out. What is the point of posting an interactive document if you can't download it as an interactive document! I have had to create a workaround to include a button IN the document that leads to an interactive PDF that I had to post separately on Google Drive to allow people to download the working PDF.

  18. Allow password-protected hosting, and hosting from a non-Adobe server

    These two features would go a LONG way to making Publish Online a viable format for professional publishing. I'm sure many clients would pay an extra fee (nothing outrageous) for a self-hosted solution, if that would be necessary for Adobe to commit resources to make this happen.

  20. Update the analytics feature on the Publish Online Dashboard so you can see all the individual analytics for each document

    Currently on the overview you can see many analytics for all your documents combined, but on the document trends screen, only views and readers are available. It would be helpful to offer our clients more specific analytics.
