  1. Please make it possible that whenever you create a QR code it automatically makes it into a hyperlink as well.

    This could be done by maybe ticking off a box when creating a QR code to optionally create a hyperlink. I know QR codes are prodominently made to scan with a phone but if you wish to publish the same publication online it would be nice if you could also click on the qr code, making it easier for the reader. It would make it easier because now I have to make a QR code while also applying the same hyperlink on it thus taking me more time and increasing the possibility of an error.

  2. Allow analytics to track the number of times a viewer downloaded the document.

    PublishOnline has been great and very informative. It would help me even more to know how many times a viewer has been interested enough in a document to download a copy. (Even better if I knew how many times they chose to print the document.)

  3. Scoping of publish online feature

    As an admin in a sensible industry, we want to provide our communication/marketing area the possiblity to PublishOnline with Indesign, but NOT to the rest of the users

    As of today, and confirmed by Adobe support, this cannot be achieved, we cannot scope nor tweak or limit this feature to a specific set of users

  5. Enable link transfer of Publish Online projects

    It would be useful to be able to transfer a project with Publish Online link to another user, so that they can update and publish revised versions of the asset without having to create new links.

  6. 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)

  7. 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?

  8. Publish Online Download Counter

    Please add a download counter for how many times your published document is downloaded to the Publications Analytics. This would be so useful as part of counting metrics of user engagement!

  9. Capacity to ignore external plug-in

    Hi all.
    I have a work made in Aquafadas (now Rakuten). The plug-in for digital publishing will not be developer again because the brand wil close the business. So, I switch the plug-in to another one (InPublishing) and everything goes fine on 2020. But with InDesign 2021 it seems to be impossible to work. InDesign 2021 made a ceck on files and it seems impossibile to add a file made with a plug-in that is not installed on a Book.
    That's very stupid, because It seems that I cannot work with 2021 because the original plug-in is not installed. BTW…

  11. Keep saved video attributes when opening packaged file and relinking media

    I am working on documents that are published online, with video and sound features. If a file is packaged and sent to other members of a team, upon opening the Indesign file, you are required to relink all media in the Links folder. However, some features are then lost, like the Poster frame settings for Video files (set in the Media panel).
    It would also be useful to be able to have the option to have sound on or off when publishing online, without having to do this in another application.

  12. Option to lock downloading videos from online published documents

    When you use the option PublishOnline, it is possible for other users to download videos from your online published document by rightclicking on the three dots an choose 'save video'. But that's not the way designers van to have their work exposed for downloading.

    I think it'll be a good idea to have the option to lock downloading videos from your online published documents.

    Can you help me solving this issue, pleas?

  13. Allow SharePoint Online functionality

    Provide the same functionality as in Adobe DC Pro to add a SharePoint Site to InDesign open and edit documents directly online without having to download and not to use OneDrive.

  14. 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.

  15. Increase the density of Previous and Next Page arrows on eBook documents published online

    Is there a way to increase the density of the shadow under the arrow for the Previous/Next Page arrows used in the eReader for documents published online? Whenever someone with a 4:3 scale monitor views a document and the document's page color is white, the arrows are hard to see.

  16. 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. Button for "Approve Artwork"

    For the "Share For Review" feature, it would be extremely helpful to have an "Approve" button and possibly an "Approve with changes" and "Send new proof with changes" button. Having these have options we can toggle would be great as well.

  20. 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
