  1. Hide video but when you mouse over a button it plays the video.

  2. Image Object page break

    Make a page break for an image object become a separate page/xhtml doc in epub export. Not just something in the code, but an actual page, so that that if I say page break before image or after or both, it separates the image onto it's own xhtml doc and truly breaks it. Just like the split page export option in a para style, this would be helpful for objects to be treated the same way.

  3. 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.

  4. Animation Effects

    It would be great if the animation effects of the Online Publish function could be made more sophisticated.

  5. EPUB Interactivity Window resize

    This window is defaulted to very small and cannot be resized, making it impossible to test small buttons.

  6. 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.

  7. EPUB export with common settings fails validation

    If you specify in EPUB (Reflowable) Export Options that CSS should be "Relative" instead of "Fixed," InDesign adds unnecessary "absolute positioning" attributes to the CSS which fails EPUB 3.x validation. If you change it to Fixed, then the images resize incorrectly.

  8. Publish online to work across multiple users

    The publish online > update existing link function should work across multiple users with seats on the same licence. It currently only works per single user, so a new link would need to be generated each time if other team members worked on the document, which is frustrating when you work in a team environment and ned to maintain the original link.

  9. Have a delay option for looped preset animations

    I want to animate a button using the 'pulse' preset I want this to be on loop but with a break in-between (say 1 second delay) before the pulse animation loops again. Right now when I click on loop animation and preview it just screams for attention and thats not what I want. I just want it to pulse 'looped' with a second delay before it does it again. Also it would be great if you could specify how large the pulse animation goes. As sometimes it is quite large.

  10. ePub presets

    Export to ePub presets, like there are for print and PDF. Kind of a "best practices" export reset that could be customized for periodical projects.

  11. Split epub at articles in articles panel

    An epub can only be splitted at specified paragraph styles. The order in which page elemetnts are exported can be specified as „Same as Articles panel“. I think it woud make sense to have also an option to split an epub at the articles in the articles panel.

  12. Make the Buttons and Forms panel expandable

    The Buttons and Forms panel is not expandable like almost all other panels. It's too narrow and when you have many buttons the Visibility list is much too short when it starts scrolling. Also, I want to move (drag and drop) the order of the buttons in the Visibility list.

  13. Customizing Export Options for Images

    If an epub is exported with the “Use Existing Image for Graphic Object” option selected, crop information is not maintained on any of the exported images. If you select "Preserve Appearance from Layout", the crop is maintained, but the images are downsampled quite extensively.

    There should be a way to export the images in their original resolution while also preserving the crop information, or at least having more customizable image export settings.

  14. Combine more than one paragraph style for a single TOC entry

    Major navigation points sometimes have headers that are split across multiple paragraph styles, not just one. This makes it impossible to correctly generate the TOC styles, since you can only select a single paragraph style per TOC/NCX entry. It would be helpful if multiple paragraph styles could have their text combined into one entry, so that they create a single navigation link in the epub. For example, "Chapter" and "One" may have two different paragraph styles, but you would want 1 NCX entry, with "Chapter One" as the text.

  15. Forms in EPUB.

    I have an opportunity to show various pages, animations, video, and audio to describe a socially engaged design piece. I want to be able to gather data from the viewer of this epub on a certain page that reflects how a person can input data on the actual art piece. Right now I cannot put a form in an epub format. Can you please provide a way to put the form. All the pieces are there to do it. I have it on my sheet but it just doesn't work. Thank you so much!!!

  19. Define epub:type in object style

    Epub:type is available in Object Export Options, but can only be set on individual objects, not in Object Styles. Since some epub:types need to be used repeatedly (like "chapter"), it would be really useful to set them in object styles.

  20. Make it possible to export iframes to ePub

    To Adobe
    It is well known, that Apple blocks iFrames. But when you can insert youtube codes into an iframe in InDesign and see it work perfect in "Public Online", then why do the video disappear when I export InDesign files to the ePub format.
