  1. Hyperlink copy and paste

    Hyperlinks: It would be nice to be able to copy and paste hyperlinks. If you try to copy and paste a text box with a hyperlink or the link itself to another document, the link does not copy. You have manually recreate it.
    Styles for hyperlinks do not copy either. The style copies over, but the hyperlink style reverts to the default.
    Same results if you put the text box with the hyperlink in a library file.
    This is very tedious when you have hyperlinks in hundreds of documents to update.

  2. Export interactive Document to animated GIF / or Animate CC

    When making simple basic animations in InDesign I cannot work anymore with them when trying to export as «animated GIF Banner». It would be working when Animate CC could directly import my InDesign File with the working timeline … but that's not possible :-(

  3. Save for web

    Why don't you implement a "save for web feature" like in illustrator or photoshop? It would be very useful to export assets for web starting from layout designed in Indesign.

    Thanks!

  4. Enable HTML5 to be imported into InDesign and exported as HTML5 / EPUB3

    Currently I'm using in5 to insert HTML5 into InDesign and then export it out as HTML5. I'm also using CircularFlo to insert HTML5 into InDesign and export it out as EPUB3. The funny thing is that the HTML5 that I'm importing to InDesign actually all came from the HTML5 output from Adobe Captivate. It is a little bit ironic that I want to combine Adobe files and make them work together but I've to use external parties plugin to do that. I'm very sure that in the future more and more people will be inserting HTML5 into InDesign either to…

  5. Advanced HTML5 export camparable to FrameMaker

    I need an HTML5 export comparable to FrameMaker: I need all these options and even more. One of the most important one is splitting of HTML pages and automatic creation of a navigation structure based on these headings.

  6. Proper export format for Webdesign

    Since Indesign gets all the functionalities for webdesign : effects, objects styles, text and pargraph styles, interactivity, links, tempaltes...
    It would be great to be able to export designs to HTML/CSS in a real and proper way (not the nowadays export).
    Or, an export to PSD, at least.

  7. Hyperlinks should create automatically https and individual Alt-Text for mail-hyperlink

    Interactive PDF creation should automatically create "https:" instead of the obsolete "http" for the hyperlinks. It should be possible to enter your own "alt" text for the e-mail link - this looks like an error when the user hovers over it with the mouse and gets %%%, etc. Therefore, unfortunately, I still solve it with a hyperlink "mailto:",... because at least this is also displayed here again. A sorting function for the hyperlinks would also be great - i.e. a folder system. Accessibility should also be significantly simplified here - that would be great.

  8. Export HTML keep set names for text anchors

    When exporting to HTML, the process removes all text anchor naming from InDesign and renames them chronologically (e,g. _idTextAnchor002). This is very frustrating when you want to keep nice, logical names for user navigation, or set an anchor to be referenced externally. Currently, make new anchors links in the document changes other anchors links (i.e. if you place an anchor link between the 1st and 2nd link, that link takes on the id and name for the 2nd link, and all other links get pushed so 2nd becomes 3rd, 3rd becomes 4th). This is terrible if users what to share…

  9. Make search and replace aware of HTML web addresses to include or exclude them

    S&R knows how to limit searches to who words or by capitalization. Give it the ability to include or (more important) exclude HTML web addresses. I often have to search an entire book replacing some hyphens with N-dashes or M-dashes. Quite a few of the search results are webpage addresses whose hyphens I do NOT want to change, often hundreds of them. It's be great if searches could exclude web addresses.

  11. Export as FLA for Animate

    It would be great to have FLA export back into InDesign. I totally understand that it might be time to remove the SWF export but to bring banner designs from InDesign to Adobe Animate it would be nice to have an export option.

  13. HTML5 Typesetting

    Our clients are sending the HTML5 inputs to load into InDesign. As we don't have direct feature to import HTML documents in InDesign, we're changing the extension into XML, also adding the META data before attempt to import the files. So it'll be good to have the direct feature within InDesign to accept the HTML files to import in InDesign without any issues, also accepting the HTML interactive features to reflect in the PDFs and in PublishOnline, will be very helpful to meet the client requirements.

  15. "Edit all export tags" panel: Checkbox to exclude classes in html

    When editing an individual paragraph, character or object style, there is a very useful option to turn off the "include classes".

    However, in the "Edit all export tags" panel, the option to turn off the "include classes" is absent. The "Edit all export tags" panel is already quite nice, this would be a very useful addition and save time otherwise spent opening and editing styles individually.

    I am trying to move away from sending our journal articles to a vendor for conversion and towards exporting html directly from our journal articles with minimal cleanup. This would help me generate cleaner…

  18. Cross-references in other documents after HTML export

    1. description
      If cross-references are made to another document in InDesign and then an HTML is exported, the linking in the HTML does not work - an empty a href is inserted without a target. It would be great if the link to the other document worked after exporting both documents as HTML.

    2. why is this important to you?
      We are a company that creates digital learning books. Many of these books are created in InDesign for the print version and then sent to us as HTML. We then prepare these for our app. If this were done automatically during export,…
