  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  4. Pubblicazione online anche per libro

  5. Allow analytics to track the number of times a viewer downloaded the document.

    PublishOnline has been great and very informative. It would help me even more to know how many times a viewer has been interested enough in a document to download a copy. (Even better if I knew how many times they chose to print the document.)

  6. Scoping of publish online feature

    As an admin in a sensible industry, we want to provide our communication/marketing area the possiblity to PublishOnline with Indesign, but NOT to the rest of the users

    As of today, and confirmed by Adobe support, this cannot be achieved, we cannot scope nor tweak or limit this feature to a specific set of users

  8. 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?

  9. Capacity to ignore external plug-in

    Hi all.
    I have a work made in Aquafadas (now Rakuten). The plug-in for digital publishing will not be developer again because the brand wil close the business. So, I switch the plug-in to another one (InPublishing) and everything goes fine on 2020. But with InDesign 2021 it seems to be impossible to work. InDesign 2021 made a ceck on files and it seems impossibile to add a file made with a plug-in that is not installed on a Book.
    That's very stupid, because It seems that I cannot work with 2021 because the original plug-in is not installed. BTW…

  10. 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.

  11. 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?

  12. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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?

  20. 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)
