  1. MSO Hidden Default State

    Currently, to revert back to an MSO not being visible after one or more of the states have been active, you have to create atop-level "blank" state that contains an empty frame of some sort, and show that state.

    This seems like a workaround that should be built-in. Maybe a few new choices can be added to the "Show/Hide" options in a button's choices:

    - Reset "X" MSO to invisible state
    - Rest all MSO's to invisible state

    ...or something similar.

    Thanks!!

  2. 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…

  3. 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!

  4. 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 :)

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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?

  8. "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

  12. No transition effects to assist loading pages with identical backgrounds.

    By default Publish online introduces a fade on page load even when there are no transitions applied in InDesign. This interferes when you use multiple pages to spoof the appearance of navigating within a one-page environment.

    When I export to PDF the background isn't redrawn so the appearance of the linked page appears smoothly. Publish Online is clunky when loading the next page as it momentarily goes black and then fades-in the page items.

    A bit of background .... I've created a page with a number of rollover buttons, then a duplicate of that page which is navigated to (x10)…

  13. Publish Online: Toggle Thumbnails

    1. Publish Online: I would like to have the option to show Toggle Thumbnails automatically - to show Toggle Thumbnails in the first initial view.
    2. This would be valuable to those who are not familiar with these Published docs. They do not search for the Toggle Thumbnails option and will never know that they can jump around within the doc.

  14. Noms de domaines et adresses IP à exclure

    Chaque fois que je souhaite publier un document online, j'ai une error#22.
    Mon équipe technique a testé de nombreuses pistes, mais sans succès.

    Pourriez-vous nous communiquer la liste des noms de domaine et adresses IP à exclure de nos analyses de sécurité pour publication d'un document Indesign ?

    Merci d'avance.
    Cordialement,
    Françoise

  15. Add Anti-Alias Intent to text for graphic export

    As web publishing has been an important part of InDesign since 5.5, it would be extremely helpful if anti-alias intent could be determined, either at a paragraph level or on output. Both Photoshop and Illustrator have this feature, and without it, export jpeg and png for web use is not up to publishing quality.

    Relatedly, when an image is placed in a document at a scale other than 100%, it would be helpful if the downsampling/upsampling intent could similarly be chosen by the user.

    Currently, the only way to produce publishable web materials from InDesign is to export a lossless…

  16. Make links shortened or create your own

    The links are too long, difficult and don't look professional for wide sharing. It would be great to be able to customise your own link.

  17. Enhancements in Publish Online

    Publish Online feature is quite good, but it'll be good if we have the below additional features:

    (1) Option to edit directly the contents and update the preview
    (2) Option to add the viewer comments like doing in PDF
    (3) Option to attach the files, usually will be as PDFs and TXT formats
    (4) Option to import the comments as mentioned in (2) into respective InDesign files
    (5) Option to adjust minor style elements

    Please let me know, if you need any clarifications on the above given details.

  18. 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!

  19. A Home Page for Publish Online Documents

    Allow us to assign uploaded documents to a home page that would display several at once. And allow us to give it a human-readable address. That'd make linking to these documents easier.
