  2. Publish Online Dashboard access via Adobe Account

    It would be nice if you could access the Publish Online Dashboard via your Adobe Account online. Currently, you have to open InDesign and then navigate to the dashboard that way, but if you are already in an internet browser and logged into your Adobe Account, there should be a way to get to the dashboard.

  3. Transparency is too fragile in Publish Online

    I created some text overlays (saying "PROOF") as objects with no background fill, then set the objects to 30% transparency.

    On publishing online, InDesign fills them with white, and some of the time also fails to produce the text.

  4. 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…

  5. play video without controls

    Please make it possible to hide the controls of a video clip - so its working in Publish online (right now its only working in PDF exports.

    With this we could make amazing publish documents with integrated video backdrops of skys, fires or rain.. With all the NON VIDEO CONTROL goodness.

    What im trying to say is video without controls can do magical things (like we could back in the good days of ... Flash.. the good days right... :)

  7. 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!

  8. 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 :)

  10. List path of InDesign document used to publish

    I can't tell you how many times I've done back to a published document, want to update, and can't figure out which document was used to publish it. Some record in the dashboard, even a static record, would be useful.

  11. Allow full functionality for publishing online - blend modes, page transitions, etc w/animated objects

    I've been working with a new media document that has video, sound and artwork to export as an interactive graphic novel - When animating objects, blend modes are not retained. Page transition feature - "turning page" also not supported.

    Spoke with adobe and verified all tonight... he said "I'm trying to do something new". XD I could see this being very useful for graphic novel designers and other new media applications in the film and streaming space as well - would love to have this functionality in the next update so I can finish this project!

    Have found no other…

  12. 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. External link to a specific point of a Publish Online document

    Can we get a way to link directly to a text anchor, hyperlink destination, page # etc from an external source?

    For example: I'd like to publish product documentation using Publish Online, and it would be nice to be able to link to a page or text anchor from a help document that would take someone to a specific point (i.e. a connection diagram).

  15. publish online full screen support on iPads

    Hi,
    i am using the great "Publish Online" feature on several documents.
    My docs are ok everywhere...

    Except full screen browsing :

    • working perfectly on desktop browsers, when clicked on the icon in the inferior bar.
    • working perfectly on iPhone (recent os) when switched in landscape mode.

    • not working on iPad (recent os, iPad 2, iPad Air and iPad Pro), none of the gesture will work, and none of the browsers neither…
    I've tried Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Opera.

    Impossible to obtain a full screen viewing, which is really required for a presentation. The upper bar will remain…

  16. 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.

  17. Add option to share direct link to specific page in PublishOnline

    We love PublishOnline but feel it is missing a "jump to page" feature or "share direct link to specific page" feature. This way, when our publications go live, we can share direct links to specific articles on social media or with clients without forcing people toggle through each page to get there. pretty please? It would help us out immensely.

  19. extend publish online to live outside Adobe servers

    would be great if publish feature allowed the same presentation to be hosted on another site (Company X,Y,Z internal network) but keep all formatting the way it is

  20. Publish Online

    Option for making navigation button NOT ANIMATED, maybe even larger. I recently had a huge project rejected because client did not know how to navigate and assumed others would have the same problem. (URL to project was embedded in button in email campaign--works great!)
