  2. Publish Online Dialog Box is Completely Blanked Out Except Top Border and Minimize X

    While in InDesign CC 2018 (13.0.1 x64) and selecting the "Publish Online" button or drop down menu command, the dialog box that pops up is completely blacked out. The only discernable features are the border and the "X" to close out of the dialog box. When hovering the mouse over the dialog box, it responds in ways that alert you to the fact all the features are still there and active - you just cant see them. The text field curser and the hand with a pointing finger appear at different spots. To see what would happen, I clicked in…

  3. "Rolloff" in Animationpanel not working in CC2017 / CC2018 / MAC / WINDOWS

    I am working on a diplom project right now, and faced a really annoying bug in InDesign. I want to create a rollover bar, wich slides up when I rollover / hover with my mouse over a certain object. I know without any kind of problems how I am able to create something like this, but my problem is, that the object simply wont return to its destination where it came from, when I rolloff it again, like going away with my mouse. It stays on its place once the animation has been completed, and when I hover over it…

  4. Export Tagging: ‘i’ character in class name exports as blank space

    I just did the 2018 update, so I think it's the most recent version: 13.0 x64

    I have a document template that contains many character and paragraph styles with export CSS tags that contain the lowercase ‘i’ in them. This character is being exported as a blank space, which completely breaks the CSS, like this:
    should be: <p class="bright"></p>
    getting: <p class="br ght"></p>

    This problem was easily replicated in a fresh new document, so it’s something with InDesign, rather than my template file.

    This workflow involves complex style mapping through to CSS classes. Because so many of the classes contain…

    Thanks for sharing the CSS and document. Apparently, I was not able to reproduce the issue, Can you please try to creating new document with few paragraph styles and try exporting the document to HTML and see if the issue is resolved.

  5. The button malfunction in Indesign CC

    The button sometimes function in Epub and sometimes it does not work.

    If I restart the software, it works. There is a bug.

  7. overlay panel

    Adobe InDesign CC 2017, Mac

    I want to do an autoplay slideshow with the overlays panel, but the panel overlaps itself, so it's not possible to click anywhere.

  8. publish online responsive design

    Indesign Publish Online publication, doesn’t work properly on a small screen.
    On a small screen, or in a small webframe, some of the buttons disappear
    ( thumbnails, zoom in, share, download etc.) and are not accessible in another way.

  9. EPUB Export: Toc wird nicht korrekt ausgegeben

    Ausgang: InDesign Dokument mit automatischen Inhaltsverzeichnis. Titel befinden sich nicht im gleichen Textrahmen (screenshot Layout).
    Das generierte toc sieht gut aus.
    Beim EPUB Export wird das Toc, aber nicht korrekt in der Reihenfolge ausgegeben. Siehe Screenshot Toc_Bug-ID: links das Toc im InDesign; rechts das toc.xhtml aus dem EPUB.

  10. HTML-Export: Bildname unvollständig

    Wir nutzen beim HTML-Export für die Bilder die Funktion „Mit Serverpfad verknüpfen“. Dabei wird im src-Attribut im Element img der Pfad und der Dateiname der Abbildung eingetragen. Beim Dateiname der Abbildung fehlt aber immer das letzte Zeichen!

  11. Map styles to tags forces image alignment to the left

    Consider: an image frame is set inline with paragraph text in a text frame. The image is wider than the width of the text frame, and RIGHT ALIGNED, so that it extends out towards the left of the text frame. When you map styles to tags, the image frame is forced to look left-aligned so that the tag is housed in the text frame. This makes the image now extend TO THE RIGHT of the text frame. PLEASE FIX!!!

  13. InDesign online help lacks an important point (bug in help text, not in the app)

    You should mention in the online help text at https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/frames-objects.html#objectexportoptionscccs6cs55 that a vector object's alt text will not be included in the epub file unless you also set the export settings to rasterize the object. (Basically: you can't include a vector object to an epub file in a vector format. Not even it's alt text.)

  14. Folio overlays

    Abode indesign CC 2017 - 08/30 - Windows
    My colleague and I are trying to make a folder with Publish online, and sometimes we need 'Folio Overlays' tool - but it doesn't work. For me it's too big to see on the screen, makes everything slow - and for her, it doesn't work at all, it doesn't show anything at all.

  15. InDesign Publish Online positions incorrectly...

    If you follow the below link in Safari (Mac Desktop), any spread that contains an ad repositions itself in the top left corner of the screen instead of centered. Additionally, in all browsers, the videos all autostart at the same time when the publication opens for the first time. Anyone have any ideas?

  16. Page transitions not working when published online to Adobe

    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.
