  1. the option to rename a Publish Online link

    Would be really useful to be able to rename the generated link for a Publish Online document so that when a client/customer clicks on the link to view in a broweser window or downloads a pdf it has the correct name of the publication.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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)

  5. Publish online

    Hello. It would be good if when publishing online the filename of the current open file is on the tittle by default instead of the last uplodaded file. (windows 10)

    Thank you

  6. Undo Delete or "Trash Folder" in Online Published Dashboard

    We were so happy to find adobe online publishing so that in these times we can reach our customers digitally. But i am sad to see that the options and features are very limited. Today it happened that i accidentally deleted a published document, that was also sent to my 6000 customers per newsletter. After a very long chat with CS, i was told to write here. Nothing can be done, i cant reactived to undo my deleted document.

  7. Video player controls in publish online too small when starting retina document

    When starting a document in bigger dimension (for example iPad retina) the controls of the viewer are very small. They are bigger when started as iPad1024x768. Shouldn't the controllers be based on percentages of the width of the screen?

  8. Exporting text from unchained boxes

    The ability to export selected unchained text boxes into ONE text file, by selecting them and then exporting, rather than having to export multiple boxes into multiple files, and then collating them. And have them appear in order.
    This would very useful when exporting text from print to the web, being able to extract an entire story in one hit, or when extracting, for example, multiple quote boxes
    At the moment one has to export an entire page and it just turns into a mush

  9. Archivo físico además de publicación online.

    Además del link que se obtiene en "publish online" muchos clientes quieren archivo físico animado e interactivo. Actualmente sólo se puede publicar mediante link o app, y el pdf está muy limitado para animaciones ¿Adobe, de lleno en la era digital y no se puede crear archivo "físico" animado e interactivo desde Indesign?. El EPUB da muchos problemas así que no es válido.

  10. Publish Online

    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!

  11. Add option to share direct link to specific page in PublishOnline

    We love PublishOnline but feel it is missing a "jump to page" feature or "share direct link to specific page" feature. This way, when our publications go live, we can share direct links to specific articles on social media or with clients without forcing people toggle through each page to get there. pretty please? It would help us out immensely.

  12. Accessibility Facilitate workload & Preview mode for barriers

    For large projects, for example we are currently working on 46 brochures for a redesign, it would be more economical if the workload for accessible PDFs would be significantly lower. We have to split the production due to the high effort (creating all formats, meta descriptions with SEO incorporation, creating articles, alt texts, etc.) and can only produce fully accessible for the next production. This is a great pity, but not possible otherwise due to the tight project schedule.

    It would be great if the articles resulted from the formats or an assignment via drag & drop (or as in…

  13. 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…

  14. empty state

    why did you remove the option to add empty state in the object state palette (Indesign 2021)? This feature was available in Indesign 2020 and very useful as it saved a lot of time. Can you bring it back please? Thank you.

  15. Saving Online PDF on different cloud

    There needs to be an option to save the online published PDF on either google drive or iCloud or dropbox. When we have to handover projects which involve ebrochures, its a prime necessity that the Urls generated can be stored by the client itself. Being a designer, I dont know how to send all the rights to the client for online published data.

  16. mandar a revisión libros

    Buenos días, tengo un archivo de libro con varios capítulos y me gustaría subirlo para que lo revisaran, pero no puedo subir a revisar el libro entero, tengo que mandar a revisión el documento de capítulo a capítulo. Sería interesante poder subir a revisión el libro entero igual que generamos el pdf ahora mismo.
    Muchas gracias

  17. Update a existing link of a publish online document from another adobe subscription id or another system/computer.

    I have created so many publish online docs for clients and now all the final output links are hosted in my Adobe Server login.

    Now I want to transfer the publish online doc .INDD package file to the client as he want to make the changes in it and update the existing link in the server.

    Now the problem which I am facing:


    1. If the client make the changes in the InDesign native file and he is publishing the document then the link generated will not be the same. Is there anyway to get the publish online doc. package file…

  18. 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!

  19. Please allow multiple indesign files to be published as ONE published online magazine

    I have magazine of 80+ pages which i have completely designed with multiple files as you would do in any magazine design and i thought in the end i would just combine all the files into one BOOK format and publish online. But to my misery that option doesn't work with online publishing. Imagine tomorrow the magazine needs to give live for an event and now i have to create a new single file and copy paste all the pages into the new file and keep checking if all the interactive features are working fine. Thanks Folks at Indesign for…

  20. Online InDesign document for client text edits — like InCopy but online without the need for technical know-how or files to move around

    I wish there was a way to post InDesign files online that would easily allow proofreaders, editors, clients or anyone without a lot of technical know-how to log in and make text edits. Freeing up designers from spending countless hours making text edits.

    We tried InCopy, but we store files on a shared server and move files up and down through a project management tool. Being able to properly move the InDesign and linked icml files was way too confusing for our writers and proofreaders and out of the question for clients.

    When we work on PPT presentations, we post…
