  1. Keep saved video attributes when opening packaged file and relinking media

    I am working on documents that are published online, with video and sound features. If a file is packaged and sent to other members of a team, upon opening the Indesign file, you are required to relink all media in the Links folder. However, some features are then lost, like the Poster frame settings for Video files (set in the Media panel).
    It would also be useful to be able to have the option to have sound on or off when publishing online, without having to do this in another application.

  2. Option to lock downloading videos from online published documents

    When you use the option PublishOnline, it is possible for other users to download videos from your online published document by rightclicking on the three dots an choose 'save video'. But that's not the way designers van to have their work exposed for downloading.

    I think it'll be a good idea to have the option to lock downloading videos from your online published documents.

    Can you help me solving this issue, pleas?

  4. Increase the density of Previous and Next Page arrows on eBook documents published online

    Is there a way to increase the density of the shadow under the arrow for the Previous/Next Page arrows used in the eReader for documents published online? Whenever someone with a 4:3 scale monitor views a document and the document's page color is white, the arrows are hard to see.

  7. Improvements to the publish online platform

    It would be interesting to improve the "Publish Online" platform, such as adding options to flip the pages of digital files in interactive pdf. Add visualization options by region in Analytics. Making it easier for the developer and users.
    And also add resources for ebooks.
    And also organization options. As creating folders, it would help a lot.

  8. 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.

  9. Option to LOCK files

    We have an increasing list of online published documents that are at increased risk of being saved over or deleted.

    A lock file feature would be useful and peace of mind.

  10. Force / open in full screen view when user views the online document

    As can be achieved with standard PDFs, I think it would be useful to have a 'force full screen' option with a pop up warning that says page is requesting full screen - allow or not.

    Many documents with heavy content almost 'need' to be fullscreen for the best viewing experience.

    This option would remind the user that full-screen is best, but with the pop-up box that allows them to continue in the current window size.

  11. Online document pre-loading / slow first screen animations

    When a viewer first accesses a published document the first screen or cover page can be slow to load.

    Often we include animated elements here and they will stutter and glitch on first loading in any browser.

    Is there a way to pre-load the online document before it appears so the viewer doesn't experience a poor animated first page?

  12. Publish online

    Hello. It would be good if when publishing online the filename of the current open file is on the tittle by default instead of the last uplodaded file. (windows 10)

  13. Undo Delete or "Trash Folder" in Online Published Dashboard

    We were so happy to find adobe online publishing so that in these times we can reach our customers digitally. But i am sad to see that the options and features are very limited. Today it happened that i accidentally deleted a published document, that was also sent to my 6000 customers per newsletter. After a very long chat with CS, i was told to write here. Nothing can be done, i cant reactived to undo my deleted document.

  14. Video player controls in publish online too small when starting retina document

    When starting a document in bigger dimension (for example iPad retina) the controls of the viewer are very small. They are bigger when started as iPad1024x768. Shouldn't the controllers be based on percentages of the width of the screen?

  15. Exporting text from unchained boxes

    The ability to export selected unchained text boxes into ONE text file, by selecting them and then exporting, rather than having to export multiple boxes into multiple files, and then collating them. And have them appear in order.
    This would very useful when exporting text from print to the web, being able to extract an entire story in one hit, or when extracting, for example, multiple quote boxes
    At the moment one has to export an entire page and it just turns into a mush

  16. Archivo físico además de publicación online.

    Además del link que se obtiene en "publish online" muchos clientes quieren archivo físico animado e interactivo. Actualmente sólo se puede publicar mediante link o app, y el pdf está muy limitado para animaciones ¿Adobe, de lleno en la era digital y no se puede crear archivo "físico" animado e interactivo desde Indesign?. El EPUB da muchos problemas así que no es válido.

  17. Accessibility Facilitate workload & Preview mode for barriers

    For large projects, for example we are currently working on 46 brochures for a redesign, it would be more economical if the workload for accessible PDFs would be significantly lower. We have to split the production due to the high effort (creating all formats, meta descriptions with SEO incorporation, creating articles, alt texts, etc.) and can only produce fully accessible for the next production. This is a great pity, but not possible otherwise due to the tight project schedule.

    It would be great if the articles resulted from the formats or an assignment via drag & drop (or as in…

  18. empty state

    why did you remove the option to add empty state in the object state palette (Indesign 2021)? This feature was available in Indesign 2020 and very useful as it saved a lot of time. Can you bring it back please? Thank you.

  19. Saving Online PDF on different cloud

    There needs to be an option to save the online published PDF on either google drive or iCloud or dropbox. When we have to handover projects which involve ebrochures, its a prime necessity that the Urls generated can be stored by the client itself. Being a designer, I dont know how to send all the rights to the client for online published data.

  20. mandar a revisión libros

    Buenos días, tengo un archivo de libro con varios capítulos y me gustaría subirlo para que lo revisaran, pero no puedo subir a revisar el libro entero, tengo que mandar a revisión el documento de capítulo a capítulo. Sería interesante poder subir a revisión el libro entero igual que generamos el pdf ahora mismo.
    Muchas gracias
