  2. publish

    Latest version of ID...

    A MP3 file placed into ID with On page load selected in the media panel and placed anywhere in the layers panel, or even alone on a page with no other objects, audio does not play On Page Load when exported to Publish Online, plays fine if you create a button and have that button play the file though.

  4. Publish Online safari and chrome viewer zoom in

    Publish Online 파일을 생성한 후 아이폰에서 열면 safari 나 chrome 에서는 확대를 했다가 다시 축소가 되지 않습니다.
    그런데 Explorer app을 다운 받아서 Explorer로 열면 확대 축소가 잘 됩니다.

  6. Windows 15.0.3 broke Book TOC when exporting to EPUB; works in 15.0.2

    Windows 10 15.0.3 broke Book TOC when exporting to EPUB; works in 15.0.2

    Not only did 15.0.3 eliminate Book > Export to EPUB option of EPUB Version 2.0.1, it changed the Table of Contents to include duplicate entries linking to every PAGE within a chapter. The Book.epub file had a separate .xhtml file for every page in the book, rather than one .xhtml file per chapter and one TOC entry per chapter. This makes the Table of Contents useless.

    Reverting InDesign back to 15.0.2 fixes the problem.

    Here are the parameters I used to export the EPUB:
    Book Menu : …

  7. Develop Publish Online for more than one "owner"

    We use your Publish Online function for our white papers, published online on our web. We love a lot about the function BUT there is some important functions we struggle with:


    • Only the owner of the PDF can edit in the published version. We have a team of designers and become dependent on one of them.

    • The PDF is not responsive to other devices

    • Statistics can only be viewed/monitored by the owner, often the designer not the functions that necessary needs this insights.

    Would love if you can develop these functions futher so we can stay Adobe-based!

    Thank you!

  8. No more videos from URL links

    Why can't I insert videos via URL link anymore? Why take steps backwards? It was a great feature. VERY disappointed this was removed . PLEASE put this back. Would like interactivity to have all the features it once had

  9. Hyperlinks don't work once published online

    I have created an Interactive Road Map with animation, sound and hyperlinks. This was working with InDesign 2018 to 2019 when I first published it. However, I needed to update the road map but then once published online using InDesign 2020 all the hyperlinks and sound stopped working. I've tried going back using older versions of InDesign but those features seem to stop functioning. I've even tried re-inserting the URLs for the hyperlinks.

    Check link https://indd.adobe.com/view/29ca9449-525d-49d4-880a-70887721f8a0

    The hyperlinks are on the station names and text boxes.

  11. Indesign publish online page transitions not working

    When I publish online from InDesign, any page transitions that have been applied to pages do not work. The pages simply appear. All animations work well, but the page push that I set as a transition does not work. Hopefully someone has a solution for this? If I use a plugin like in5 I can get the desired effect. Hopefully Adobe can add the same functionality that In5 has. Here is a sample from in5 that has the correct page transition: https://rudilouw.com/rotspoel/ You can drag from side to side and slide the pages.

  14. Export to HTML of Tables structure is incorrect

    InDesign CC2019+2020

    Create a table
    Convert first row to Header row type
    Convert last row to Footer row type
    Export to HTML

    you get (simplified)
    <table>

    &lt;thead&gt;
    
    &lt;td&gt;
    &lt;p&gt;Text&lt;/p&gt;
    &lt;/td&gt;
    &lt;/thead&gt;
    &lt;tfoot&gt;
    &lt;td&gt;
    &lt;p&gt;Text&lt;/p&gt;
    &lt;/td&gt;
    &lt;/foot&gt;
    &lt;tbody&gt;
    &lt;td&gt;
    &lt;p&gt;Text&lt;/p&gt;
    &lt;/td&gt;
    &lt;/tbody&gt;

    The HTML spec specifies that tfoot should appear AFTER tbody.
    Also the <td> in <thead> should be <th>.

  15. Page Transition - Interactivity Preview

    On Indesign CC, I applied simple page transition on 2 pages. However, the transition is not previewing in the EPUB Interactivity Preview. When you go to the next page, it no page transition applies.

    So I tried doing it on Indesign CS6, and it shows the page transition.

    Can anybody help me with this?

  17. animation file from indesign, 'recovered files' every time in trash (indesign didn't crash)

    when I save an animation file from indesign, I get a 'recovered file' every time I restart my Mac. I try to remove it, but then my document starts going crazy. (indesign didn't crash, it just happens)

    animation in indesign works fine, but the maps keep coming and it is irritating.

  18. shared destination hyperlinks do not get inserted into exported epub 3 (InDesign CC 2020 v15.0)

    I have a document with many shared destination hyperlinks. When I go to export this document out to an epub 3 file, non of the shared destination hyperlinks are inserted into the epub file. This is a huge problem.

  19. Copying animations loses timing panel settings

    When copying/duplicating animations (using ANY method), the timing panel settings are completely lost. This is really bad for complicated animations. The timing panel settings should be maintained when animations are copied/pasted or duplicated in any way.

  20. EPUB; Exporting a numbered list to a reflowable pub

    When working with "numbered list: in Indesign, paragraph style work great.

    However after working and exporting it to a reflowable Epub it doesnt respect alignment and moves inward. I have looked up for anyone who has encountered the same problem making sure I wasn't the only one and yup there are others with the same issue.

    I would like not to, for every numbered list in every book, to convert numbering to text. This is something I have seen as an issue since someone commenting since 2014 and not receiving any solution.

    I need to know if there is some…
