  2. Publish Online - repeated issues and lack of certainty with platform

    Don't know if this is the right place, but Publish Online service is variable. Continued messing with the interface and uncertainty about what Adobe's going to do next means that I now will have to purchase Ajar In5 and also rent some server space to put my docs on because of the problems I've had with Publish Online interface and also comments from some of Adobe Community forum members that say it's foolhardy to rely on Adobe to continue supporting Publish Online because it's 'free'.
    Unfortunately, this means that rather than having Illustrator and Photoshop under my subscription, these will…

  3. Password Protection for Online Publishing

    It would be incredibly helpful if, when publishing a pdf online - for both personal or professional use - there was an option to add a password protection to the link, so that if a link to an important document were to be shared, only those intended recipients - those with access to the password - would be able to access and view it.

  4. Please make it possible that whenever you create a QR code it automatically makes it into a hyperlink as well.

    This could be done by maybe ticking off a box when creating a QR code to optionally create a hyperlink. I know QR codes are prodominently made to scan with a phone but if you wish to publish the same publication online it would be nice if you could also click on the qr code, making it easier for the reader. It would make it easier because now I have to make a QR code while also applying the same hyperlink on it thus taking me more time and increasing the possibility of an error.

  5. Allow upload of alternative PDF for download

    An essential option really, to allow a flat non-animated version of the online publication that's being viewed.

    As we all know any level of animation or pop-ups elements will end up on the downloadable PDF version making it almost useless.

    Unless anyone knows a workaround?

  7. Full screen mode while in portrait view on iPhone and other devices

    It might just be my olddd iPhone 6 but portrait view always leaves navigation bar and footer bar on screen when viewing.

    Now until responsive layouts become a feature (wish), then if we want to create a portrait layout publication/document for viewing on a device, full- screen doesn't happen for me and others. It would nice to be able to enable this, as in landscape view.

  8. Publish Online Download Counter

    Please add a download counter for how many times your published document is downloaded to the Publications Analytics. This would be so useful as part of counting metrics of user engagement!

  9. Change pasteboard / background page colour

    The dark grey isn't always best!

    Often a page may have a dark background which doesn't sit will on a dark pasteboard background.

    An option to change this background colour even if from a limited palette would be good.

  10. Folders within dashboard

    Would be good to be able to organise published documents into folders. Like many users, we are piling up documents and need to get more organised with them. One long list isn't helpful

  11. When choosing to link a button to a page, remove hard coding of links to a page even if it gets moved.

    I have discovered an "error" or possible limitation of an existing feature when linking to pages through buttons.

    For example, I set a button to go to page 9. Later I drug that content to a new location in the document (page 2), thus changing it's page number. However, the button no longer went to the content that was now on page 9, it jumped to the content that was original there when I set that button.

    Can we have the set page number option just link to the current page even if content was moved around after setting up…

  12. Please allow multiple indesign files to be published as ONE published online magazine

    I have magazine of 80+ pages which i have completely designed with multiple files as you would do in any magazine design and i thought in the end i would just combine all the files into one BOOK format and publish online. But to my misery that option doesn't work with online publishing. Imagine tomorrow the magazine needs to give live for an event and now i have to create a new single file and copy paste all the pages into the new file and keep checking if all the interactive features are working fine. Thanks Folks at Indesign for…

  13. Predetermine Adobe .pdf settings for Publish Online Documents

    I post interactive documents in a double page spread with Publish Online, but when it is downloaded, all the interactivity is stripped out and it downloads as single pages. What is the point of posting an interactive document in a spread format if you can't download it, as an interactive document in spread format!

    I would like to be able to predetermine the .pdf download options before publishing online ie double page spread with (cover page) and choose the interactive elements to be included. That way when they press download .pdf it is downloaded with all the interactivity and in…

  14. Publish Online search field is missing

    It needs a search box on the dashboard to simplify the search. Now you scroll for minutes and search the specific document to overwrite it.

  16. Publish Online iPhone view Disappear the URL Search Bar

    When we publish a document online, the chances are it will be 16:9 or a double page spread. Many client may wish to view this on a device such as iPad or iPhone.

    We have found that when we try to do this and turn the device (iPhone, Safari) to landscape mode, the URL search field bar can appear and NOT disappear again. This takes a lot of screen space and ruins the effect and view of the page.

    Is there a solution to this?

  18. GDPR regulations demand that data collections turned of on the Publish Online feature for my client upload to their website.

    Even though Adobe claims to be up-to-date with GDPR regulations, I need to know how to turn all data collections off in InDesigns "Publish Online" feature, for my client to actually use the asset that was created for them. With the new GDPR regulations, they can not publish anything online that collects any kind of data.

    Please explain how I do this?

  19. "Go back to a specific page"

    "Go back to a specific page" - meaning if I have text links in the file and move from page 10 to page 110, give me an easy way to return to where I came from. In this case, page 10. Like a back button navigating through webpages. This is for PUBLISH ONLINE
