  3. 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.

  4. Interactive buttons able to form shape of path

    Currently interactive buttons are restrained to circular or rectangular bounding boxes. This needs to change so a path can be turned into the button.

  5. INDESIGN EPUB REFLOWABLE not exporting spaces between pages and text

    ERROR/BUG INDESIGN EPUB REFLOWABLE:

    There is an error that the reflowable EPUB does not export the spaces between pages and texts.
    This implies that you must go to other software to do so.

    More detail of the error in case No. ADB-11233384-C2H4

    No one from your technical team could solve this yet.

    PLEASE IT IS VERY EMERGENCY TO CORRECT THIS

  7. Make embedded audio InDesign's EPUB3 files fully compatible with Google Play Books platform

    Embedded audio in EPUB3 documents created with InDesign is not recognised when the EPUB3 document is published via the Google Play Books platform. This is due to incompatible ID tags. InDesign exports this:
    <audio id="idAudio001"
    but Google Play Books requires:
    IDs must start with a letter ([A-Z,a-z]) and may be followed by any number of letters, digits ([0-9]), hyphens ("-"), underscores ("
    "), colons (":"), and periods (".")

    Currently this makes it impossible to use InDesign to create an EPUB3 with embedded audio and publish it correctly via the Google Play Books platform.

  9. Possibility to ignore stroke type in object styles

    Whenever you export EPUB with some object style you have made, it always comes with a border style. For example, border-style:solid;
    In cell styles it's possible to ignore the stroke type so it would be great if same can be done in object styles.

  11. EPUB Exporting option (Merge paragraph styles option)

    EPUB Exporting option (Merge paragraph styles option)

    I am making book layouts and facing an issue during the Epub export. I have book chapters that use two paragraph styles. The first style is for line one, "Chapter X" and the second paragraph style is for the next line with the chapter name. I can't use the same Paragraph style for both lines because they should be formatted differently.

    My question is, can you add a feature that allows using a chain of paragraph styles to create an Epub table of contents? The chain can use the very first style formatting…

  12. Display a button's multiple actions/events

    If we are able to add multiple events to buttons, the only way we can see those actions is to pro-actively switch to that event (via the Event drop down in the InDesign Buttons and Forms panel) or by exporting an interactive PDF and viewing the actions in the button's properties dialogue box in Acrobat.

    Ideally, if an object is turned into an interactive button, the panel should change to reflect that. Within the new space, if a button is applied an action via the event drop down, line items should appear similar to the way actions aggregate. Another method…

  13. In the 'EPUB export warning(s)' dialog box, make the problem description copyable

    Sometimes when exporting a book to EPUB, the 'EPUB export warning(s)' dialog pops up.

    The most obvious action for the user is to examine his documents to figure out what went wrong.

    But that dialog box is modal. The user must close it before proceeding.

    Sure, it would be nice to make that dialog box non-modal, so that the user could look at their documents while having the problem descriptions available.

    Lacking that feature, though, you could make it easy to copy the problem text to another app (such as Windows Notepad). You allow the first step: Letting the user…

  15. 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.

  17. EPUB Interactivity Window resize

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

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
