  1. 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.

  2. Android Chrome - publish online incompatibility.

    Publish online is a great idea with a brilliant future and I love it. Hope Adobe will continue to update it although I am not so sure. Most major browsers on Safari Firefox Opera Chrome Mi on desktop or mobile Windows IOS and Android, look they r working fine. There are issues with Android Chrome which in some countries is a big issue. (browsing a published document with Android Chrome control bar next-previous buttons appear instantly and then disappear and can't bring them back, touch, zoom seem not to be working either and browsing freezes)

  3. 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

  4. 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…

  5. "Publish Online" change viewer language

    The default language for the viewer is English and can only be changed from the viewer. As our clients are germans, it would be very helpful to set the language to German (or any other language) while publishing online.

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  10. 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?

  11. "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

  15. Toggles in Dashboard for published content

    Introduce zwo Switches/toggles for "Hide the Share and Embed code" and "Allow PDF-Download" within the dashboard for an already published document so it doesn’t have to be republished every time one wants to change any of these options?

  16. Fix Javascript errors on all Publish Online documents

    Every single Publish Online document throws a Javascript error. The error code seems to be the same for every document. The below was taken from 'Five Days from Nowhere', an Adobe example document used on the Publish Online documentation. The issue is that this Javascript error makes it impossible to add any custom Javascript as any subsequent code will not execute when the document is embedded in a different environment. This is a big issue for example for implementing Google Analytics Tracking codes into iframes.

  17. Expand PublishOnline Analytics (PART II)

    Hello!
    Would be possible to get the data of each document day by day instead of big figures? I mean, I would like to know how many people have read my document in the first 24 h after its publication, 2 days after, in the third day... and so on.
    That´s very important (and urgent) for us in order to make decissions regarding contents.
    Thank you very much in advance!

  19. WEBP - Please add an export option in InDesign to save as <FILENAME>.webp

    Please add an export option save as webp.

    Hello, I do a lot of my flyers and promotions in InDesign and have been exporting them as PNG for years. So instead of me saving the file as PNG then opening the file in Photoshop and exporting as webp, having an export webp feature in Indesign would a better streamline workflow.

    I've read that webp is a better solution for web graphics Webp in 75% lossy format is a better looking and compressed file than PNG it will save loading times on my website and eblasts.

  20. searchable publish online document

    InDesign documents published through Publish online should be searchable by option F. I am uploading chapters of a my book that are much less valuable if they cannot be searched.
