    When pressing navigation (arrow keys) publishonline is flashing or clearing the page. Please stop that and just display the next page!

  2. PublishOnline dashboard folders

    About time the dashboard provided a better file directory to allow users to organise their files better.

    When you have multiple clients with over a hundred live publications it can get messy!

    A simple even only single level file/folders option would be great so I can move all clients publications into their own folder.

    A thousand agencies around the world would greatly welcome this I promise you!

  3. Option to turn hard coded navigation arrows on and off

    I would love to be able to turn the prev next arrows off when not required. They can interfere with the design appearance of a publication.
    It made it worse when Adobe made the arrows even thicker!
    It should be easy to do for Adobe. Again Ajar In5 can do this. Indesign should be able to do it natively

  4. Form - text fields that can be assigned with paragraph styles in stead of the default font, style, size.

    Default font is set to Minion Pro, size 12 for new text fields. It should be assigned with a paragraph style. The only workaround now is to go to find/replace font.

  6. Please allow the option to put a published link that was deleted on accident in the trash instead of it being gone forever & one can restore

    Please allow the option to put a published link that was deleted on accident in the trash instead of it being gone forever & one can restore.
    My computer files got deleted, and then it decided to die all together, so I can't republish or update the existing link to my InDesign project. I tried on another computer but it's just not working.

  7. Ability to brand "Publish Online" docs by adding a favicon and customize the URL

    I love this option for publishing professional documents online, but I NEED to be able to brand the digital experience with our logo and change the URL so it isn't indd.adobe. It's confusing/less professional for our customers.

  8. Allow use of Image Blocks in online publishings & Interactive PDFs

    I really want to create a more immersive viewing experience of my 3D designs by using holographic image blocks as an embed in interactive PDF's and/or Online publishing (If you are not aware of this excellent technology you need to check out LookingGlass; https://blocks.glass/). Can we please make this a supported feature?

    At first glance, you might be fooled into believing that it already is as Indesign allows you to insert image blocks as an HTML which works perfectly in the EPUB Interactive preview. The only problem? When you publish the document the image blocks turn into a grey…

  9. PLEASE allow the removal of the background color on embeds

    It seems kind of silly to not have that kind of control when this is a design program. Also, I second the comment here to remove the Adobe watermark on the embed. It makes the embed look unprofessional, like someone didn't pay for their account. It reflects poorly on the designer / owner of the website, who is not at fault.

  10. 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.

  12. 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).

  13. 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?

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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

  17. 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

  18. 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

  19. 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…

  20. 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!
