  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Problème d'accès à Publish Online

    Je n'arrive pas a voir mon tableau de bord de mes document Publish Online. Lorsque je les publie à partir de InDesign, je suis capable de feuilleter mes documents, mais il m'est impossible de voir l'ensemble de mes documents publiés. Ça ne présente qu'une page blanche (voir image attachée).

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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)

  14. 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.

  15. publish online

    I have used Publish Online many times in the past. I am trying to locate an older document that I published two years ago. When I click on the previous link, I receive a 404 message.

    So, I attempted to publish it again directly from InDesign, but the function sent an error unable to complete message.

    So, I tried to access the publish dashboard, and then I receive a "You Do Not have access to Publish Online service."

  16. Publish Online feature has issues when viewed in iOS 13

    We are using the "Publish Online" feature inside Adobe Indesign to make some of our content available on our website. We've recently received reports from users with Apple iOS 13 mobile devices that the content is not displaying properly on those types of mobile phones. When the content first opens, if you double tap the page zooms in ok and double tapping again zooms out ok. However, if you try to pinch/zoom, the page blows up very large such that you can only see a couple words and you cannot pinch to get back out. Sometimes double-tapping again takes it…

    I have been working with publish online services for a few months now and have spent the past few days re-publishing the same document trying work out some kinks in the button operations and animation timing.

    Suddenly today, I began receiving this error when trying to publish online "You cannot use this feature right now. Please check your network connectivity."

    Additionally, when I try to access the publish online dashboard I see this error: "You do not have access to Publish Online service.
