  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. EPUB Interactivity Window resize

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

  7. animate within a bounding box

    with all of the animate options, grow, rotate, etc., it would be great if these could be applied to the image within a bounding box. Meaning the bounding box does not animate, but the image inside can grow, turn, etc.

  8. Document info in Indesign hyperlinks

    I am implementing a sort of voting system for articles in a magazine (readers can vote wether or not they like an article). This means I have to implement 3 (more if I want a more detailed system) links per article. It would be handy to be able to use document info in the links so I can use this as parameters. Things like "Filename" "Pagenumber" "Section name" would really make this process a lot easier. I could create one set of links with these "parameters" and copy it to any section/Page/document and none of the links would have to…

  9. Describing the purpose of a link in EPUBs using aria-label

    Description

    It would be really great if hyperlinks would get an (optional) attribute to describe their purpose, and this being reported in EPUB outputs as values of aria-label attributes.

    https://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG22/Techniques/aria/ARIA8

    Something similar is already in place for alt-text ("Edit Hyperlink..." -> "Accessibility" -> "Alt-Text") which I understand plays a role in PDF outputs.

    Why is this valuable to you?

    This would bring a GREAT accessibility enhancement in all those occasions where the hyperlink (or the hyperlinked text) does not provide enough context/information to the reader (i.e. when reporting DOI links - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_object_identifier - they almost never offer any info on…

  10. Footnote numbering for Persian and Arabic ePubs

    It is a significant undertaking when one needs to convert an Arabic/Persian (RTL languages) book into an ePUB. In addition, the software capabilities diminish as the number of readers decreases. The InDesign Development Team has done a decent job making the InDesign 2022, version 17.3 (Eng/AR), work well. However, there is still a lot to accomplish in non-native languages to be processed.

    One major issue with InDesign is that the only option for footnotes is using Latin numbers (1,2,3,...). When a book is written in Arabic/Persian, the same kind of numbers are needed (۱، ۲، ۳،...). When creating a print…

  11. Display of footnote in epub

    Footnotes always appear in Indesign for design purpose, but when we export it to .epub, there should be an option to hide the footnote and it should appear only when the reference number is clicked.

  12. Accessibility isn't anything new and when working in and on any creative industry product or campaign it should be considered from the off.

    I've received a Published Online PDF from a director who's sent a 27-page document that I need to read but as a dyslexic, I rely on using the 'speech' accessibility function built into my mac to allow myself to read this at a fast pace to keep on track with work and my colleges.

    You Publishing Online PDF documents don't allow the functionality for this to happen as you can't highlight the text within the document, a basic function on the most text on a computer and online. I think this should be looked at and I'm a little surprised…

  14. Adding interactivity for Windows 10

    Interactivity is not yet available for Digital Publishing on Windows 10 OS. Until it does, it would be great if inDesign had a panel where you could write code to create hyperlink and button navigation.

  15. Allow Articles Pane to scroll to add more items easily

    I'm working on a document that has many articles to drag into the articles pane. It's far too easy to accidentally drag a new article into an existing one because you can't scroll up to show enough blank space in the pane. Why is there no slider in the pane so there's enough room to drag new items?

  16. 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.

  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.
