  1. Publish Online: Sharper elements

    InDesign seems to convert vector-based elements (linked eps/AI etc.) in JPGs when I publish online. But that's not sharp. Even with 144dpi (Retina Display …). But text is sharp … Is it possible to have alle the same sharp?! (if not the clients ask: why is the text sharp and these elements not?!) Maybe convert to svg or show a PDF …???

    • Provide the ability to hide specific pages in Publish Online

      First off, this whole issue revolves around the fact that there are left and right navigation arrows built within the Publish Online interface.

      In the document I'm currently making, I am using my own custom navigation arrows within my document. I have set these arrows to skip over certain pages because they will be accessing them through other buttons (in short, these navigation arrows I've created won't be leading them in a linear fashion through the document.

      These work fine, but the only issue is the OTHER arrows that are actually a part of Publish Online's interface. These cycle straight…

      • Copy/ paste elements with actions without reversing order of actions

        Allow copying and pasting of elements with actions attached to them without reversing the order of the actions that were copied. This would result in a huge boost to productivity.

        • Allow different users to update the same document on the publish online feature

          I currently work on a team of three designers, and we sometimes work on each other's files. Currently, if there is an update to a file that has been published online, and we need to upload a new version of a document, we have to figure out which of the three of us originally uploaded the file and have them update it. It would be easier if we could update each other's files rather than asking the original designer to stop what they are doing to update a project.

          • Allow spread view documents published online to be downloaded as single page view pdf's.

            An InDesign document in a spread, 2-page view format that is published online turns into the same spread, 2-page view when it's downloaded as a pdf. It would be nice to add a control in the online version to allow the view to select one or two-page formats in the pdf that they downlaod.

            • Easier to disable the published online dialogues

              Make it easier to disable the publish online dialogues appears every time you save a PDF.

              I got rid of it once, but I've had to reset my preferences several times since then and each time it comes back wanting to inform me about the new feature.

              A checkbox for do "not ask me again" should appear prominently on the first page of that dialogue.

              • Allow removal of the "publish online" button that appears when you embed a published InDesign document.

                Allow removal of the "publish online" button that appears when you embed a published InDesign document. This can be distracting to users and potentially direct them away from the content they are viewing.

                • Note field with published files

                  In our company we create several versions of our brochures made in InDesign, based on the type of client and job. The title for the various versions needs to be identical (Design Brief from XXX) so it's time consuming to identify the correct file for a specific client. If we were able to add notes for ourselves for each file that would be helpful. Ideally these notes would be visible for us on the Publish Online Dashboard, visible right there with each of the titles of the published files.

                  • Allow Changing User Options for Documents Already Published using Publish Online

                    I have published several documents using the Publish Online feature in InDesign and then decided to change how readers interact with the online publication, i.e., allow download, allow sharing, etc. when such options were not indicated initially. Right now it looks like the only way to change the options is to re-publish the document and indicate the new options. It's a nightmare, particularly when a document published just fine the first time around, and generates error messages in trying to re-publish. I hope there's an easy answer to this.

                      Need more info  ·  Anonymous responded

                      Wanted to understand this a little more.

                      Currently if the user tries to re-publish a document the user has 2 options, either “Publish New document” or “Update Existing Document”.

                      Choosing Update Existing lets the user update an already published document, such that the URL generated remains the same. So in effect this should work very similar to what has been described here as a problem.

                      Can you try this out (if not already) and let me know how this works for you.

                      Thanks
                      Javed
