  1. Coruppt HTML Export in Indesign v16

    I have a document, which is created in an older Indesign-Version. It contains many HTML-Export Tags - no Problem in Indesign v14 (CC 2019) and v15 (2020). When I export a HTML-File from Indesign v16 (2021), all n-characters in the span-class-Attribute are replaced with blanks!

  2. Text originated from MS Word yields problematic results when exported to HTML (excessive <span> statements)

    I’ve stumbled upon a bug evident in text originated from MS-Word, which affects the HTML structure when exported from InDesign. Originally I encountered it with Hebrew text in heavily-style-driven paragraphs, however I re-created it in a completely “clean” style environment as well:

    (1) Create a new file in MS-Word. Type some text into it (as “Lorem Ipsum”).

    (2) Copy the text and Paste into InDesign.

    (3) Reset the Paragraph Style; then apply a Character style to the text (it could be a Character style with no attributes).

    (4) Paste the same text into Notepad, then Copy it again from Notepad…

  3. export tagging

    The epub 3.0 reflowable and html exports are dropping characters from the export tags in the html/xhtml files. This just started happening in the last few weeks (not sure exactly when it started), perhaps early Aug 2019. My version of InDesign is upgraded to CC V14.0.3 x64, and it is still happening. I've attached 4 screenshots: 2 show the export tags in Paragraph styles, and the other 2 show the files generated by InDesign (1 in html and 1 in xhtml from an epub export). Characters are dropped from the styles. It doesn't drop a character in all styles, and…

  4. Can't change the names of Object States

    In InDesign 16.1, the entry box for changing the names of Object States flashes open and closed in a fraction of a second—too fast for entering a new name. This was not a problem in previous versions of InDesign.

  5. publish online

    When I try to publish online it comes up with an error#39. I believe it's a problem with the proxy settings and my IT team are trying to fix this but they need to know what the network requirements are for it to work properly

  6. Publish online- Safari issues

    Using ID 15.0.3

    Using embed code on my protfolio page.

    Videos cause rescaling of the page, videos are 1280x720 mp4s and have not been scaled on their pages

    Videos also do not play on page load, you must click play on them.

    None of these issues are present when using chrome.

  7. Publish Online Mobile Zoom

    When I try to zoom in the embedded Publish Online viewer, and I’m on mobile, it zooms too far and then it’s impossible to zoom all the way out again unless I switch pages.

  10. Publish Online from Indesign. Deepetch issue

    Good day, all. I'm desperately trying to resolve an issue that I have tried for days to fix. The images are all fine in my InDesign document. They are PNGs with no background. I've tried EPS and TIFFs with clipping paths. And still, I get the same issue.

    Which is....when I publish the document and view it online. The backgrounds are white - as if all the deep etching disappeared.

    Please advise - I don't know what else to do.

  11. Export to ePub / html removes single characters from class names randomly

    On export to ePub and / or html (on Windows 10 64-bit), single characters are removed from class names. This appears to happen randomly (as shown below), but consistently (the same tags will have the same errors after closing and opening the document, after quitting and restarting InDesign, after restarting the computer, and whether exported as ePub or html).

    – span class="Colour" becomes span class="Colo r" (set on character style)
    – h4 class="Event-Month" becomes h4 class="E ent-Month" (though h4 class="Event-Date" is OK) (both set on paragraph style)
    – span class="Link" becomes span class="Lin" (set on character style)

    These same errors…

  12. No SEO capabilities when publishing online.

    If you could add SEO capabilities to Interactive PDFs when using the "publish online..." option in InDesign that would be wonderful.

  16. Email Hyperlink Breaks

    In the Hyperlinks panel, Email hyperlinks that include a subject that includes an ampersand will change from an Email-type to a URL-type when you click OK. Status will then appear as a red dot in the Hyperlinks panel instead of an envelope. Opening it again from the Hyperlinks panel will show the subject gone and in a URL format.

    TO TEST - Highlight text in your document. Open the Hyperlinks Panel. Create a new hyperlink with the [+] button at the bottom of the panel, choose email as the type, type a valid email address, then enter a subject line…

  17. hyperlink conflict when exporting epub

    Indesign 16.01
    manual back-linking of endnotes: since indesign does not generate back links from endnotes in exported pdfs (unlike in epub), I made a manual backlink by defining a text anchor on the endnote reference in the text and hyperlinking the number of the endnote to that anchor.
    After doing this however, if i then try to export as an epub it seems the manual hyperlink causes a conflict with the epub export, which results in the program freezing indefinitely requiring manual shutdown by ending task in Windows (10. 20H2)

  18. Problem with Publish online.

    Version 13 - very repeatedly happening for the first time today. A previously published link to a document no longer works -- when I click I get a 404 User error saying that the document does not exist. And when I go to "Publish Online" within InDesign I get an error saying that I "cannot use this feature at this time. Check your network connectivity." Repeats even when I shut down and come back into the document.

  20. Block Html Content

    271/5000
    A few months ago Adobe blocked Html content from most sites. I use a lot of Html content in my presentations.
    I would like this type of content blocking to be reviewed.
