  2. 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?

  3. 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.

    [Error] Error: [$rootScope:inprog] http://errors.angularjs.org/1.3.0/$rootScope/inprog?p0=%24digest

  4. IP addresses viewing

    Please make IP addresses available for those that view published documents from InDesign. It protects the creator to know specifically who and when a document was viewed. Thanks.

  7. Enhance default page transition so it doesn't just "blink" to show the next page

    Before the v 18.0 update it was possible to add ?transistion at the end of the url to get a more smooth slide effect when turning pages. But now the pages just blink when clicking to show the next page.

    Would be much appreciated if the page turn was more smooth (and even more preferably if there was a choice of different transitions, like page turn effect).

  8. Autoplay Media Workaround

    My video is set to play on page load and repeat. This works well in Chrome on both desktop and mobile. However, the autoplay option is off by default in Safari. I would like to see some way to embed my video. In this case, I am only utilizing this as a background element to add dynamics. Allow me to add animation or allow me to embed MP4 that will autoplay on all devices. Pretty please?

  9. More Control Over Embeds (Option to remove the publish online button from my embeds)

    Dear Adobe.

    It's time to stop acting like the "Tommy Hilfiger of Software" and allow users "Who Pay" for your software to remove your branding from final published pieces.

    Who said this would be OK? Seriously, you don't see PPTX files trying this hard!

    ALSO... Give users control of the embed framework. Maybe we don't NEED all the controls and labels on the bottom of published items and just need the published item.

    Also... Give the user the option to change the background color.

  10. Option to switch off nav bar

    Can adobe give us the option, when publishing online, to switch off the Publish Online interface Nav Bar, so that when I embed using iFrame into Wordpress websites, I can pick up on the existing scheme without this bar interrupting the visual integrity

  11. Nav bar in Publish Online interface

    Can Adobe give designers control over the Nav Bar and not keep messing with the Publish Online interface. They've recently made the Nav Bar thicker, which has now messed up all the web apps I've sold to clients

  12. Publish Online Nav Bar - can this be adjustable on upload via dialogue box?

    Adobe have just made the Nav Bar fatter - this instantly trashes the web apps my company have created and sold to clients, because it obscures part of the lower menu. If Adobe wish to fiddle with this, can they not put the control of the Nav Bar in the hands of the creators that provide their solution, and not keep messing with it, as they did earlier in the year by sticking a margin all the way round the document page within the Publish Online interface

  13. Rotate - it needs an 'oscillate' or 'reverse' tick box

    Absolutely love the animation within Publish Online, really allows me to get client engagement. BUT.... it's missing something very vital - when you set a rotation, it only goes one-way. It needs to be able to reverse at the end of the rotation - so to rotate back to home position again. I strongly believe this would massively improve the animation options

  14. 6 simple updates to make 'Publish Online' better

    An open request to Adobe to address at the following:

    1. Customisable links, based off user profile and document title. The current lengthy lines of jumbled letters do not look professional when sending to clients.

    2. Password protected links. Since we're forced to publish on Adobe's cloud, at least give the ability to encrypt the link so it can't be forwarded on. Extra feature here (like frame.io) would be to require the viewers email to view so the author can get data and verify who is viewing the document.

    3. Make it possible to preview a gif loop while designing instead of the…

  15. 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!

  16. If multiple users could update the same document and publish while updating the SAME LINK. Currently one user can update an existing link.

  17. 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.

    See my PS exports from…

  18. 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.

  19. Add PDF Downloads to Publish Online Dashboard Analytics

    It would be really useful if PDF downloads was a statistic added to the Analytics in the Publish Online dashboard.

    Our company, as I am sure many others are, is strattling the line trying to figure out what documents are still necessary to print and what documents can exist solely as digital documents, and it would be really helpful to know how many people are still going out there and downloading a copy. This would require some inference on our end, but we could then determine how many people want their own copy of a document and how many are…

  20. Fix "Analytics" on Publish Online

    The company I work for creates ebooks and then updates it by request of the clients. The links can't be changed as people use them in their communication so we have to update the ebooks instead of uploading new ones. By doing this we're unfortunately resetting all the analytics for the ebook. Trying to get the analytics with a delay of "approximately 90 minutes" is a joke in itself. So if I need to update a document I can't wait 90 minutes to eventually see the analytics and then save them somewhere. I suggest fixing this and turning it into…
