  1. Problème d'affichage des outils de révision dans In Design

    Bonjour, j'ai testé l'outil révision dans In Design avec mes collègues, mais j'ai un problème lorsque je clique sur "Aller à l'examen" pour voir les modifs en ligne, mon ordinateur (PC récent intel Core i9) ouvre par défaut le navigateur Microsoft Edge, et je ne visualise que les 2 premiers outils de révision (la pipette et l'épingle), je ne vois pas les textes surlignés, barrés ou entourés. Sur les nouveaux PC, on ne peut pas changer le navigateur par défaut. Pour visualiser les modifs, il faut que j'ouvre Firefox, que je copie le lien sécurisé produit par le logiciel In…

  2. publish online

    In InDesign 2021, publish online refuses to complete. When we close the dialog box and reopen it later, it refuses to let us do another publish online.

  3. Translation bug : Spread -> Grossi instead of Planche (in french)

    1. Click on publish online button Single Page is well translated as "Un(e) seul(e)" (page) Spread is wrongly translated as "Grossi" Grossi means bigger (or what we had with trapping : spreading inks, so making ink marks bigger) Planche which has been the accepted term in inDesign for ages.

  5. Messed up tags for export to epub

    The tags and classes have been suddenly and unexplicably changed around among the paragraph formats. The circles mark places where the text is just wrong and the arrows point to where the text should be (ie the format where I entered it). Super wierd.

    Might have some connection to the crashes I have had for a while when I have entered tag for export information and when trying to save the format, the whole program shut down. Not in this particular file though.

    Please unravel this mess.

  6. Publish online no longer allows hyphens and dashes in title

    Is this a new restriction or a bug. It started after the update to 2021 version.

  7. EPUB Export

    Please make EPUB3 the default when opening the EPUB export dialog box. It has been the standard for years now, and letting people export as EPUB 2.01 will only create EPUBs that don't meet the modern standard. I was disappointed to see in CC2021 that the default is still the EPUB version that is several years out of date.

  8. Adobe InDesign 2020 - All text in my Indesign file that contains hyperlinks disappear

    (cont.) even though the hyperlinks panel show the links themselves the text is gone and I can't get it back. Hours of work is gone.

    I first started seeing the text is pushed together in the epubs I would export, especially moreso on the words with hyperlinks. After fixing a few things I export another epub and it is completely gone and it is also gone in the indd and idml files.

  9. 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.

  11. Arabic exported to EPUB (Fixed Layout) doesn't show properly

    • InDesign 15.1.2 / Mac OS 10.15.6

    • Create an InDesign document with Arabic content. Apply any Arabic font.

    • When exporting to EPUB (Fixed Layout) we should see the Arabic text appear in the epub viewer in similar manner as it shows in InDesign document.

    • The exported epub document is viewed in Apple's Books application, and Adobes Digital Editions 4.5 with similar problems in both epub viewers, where all Arabic text is either invisible or messed up and shifted from its location.

    • Attached images from InDesign document, and epub file which was exported from InDesign.

    • Links from…

    Beim Veröffentlichen von doppelseitigen Dokumenten "verschwinden" Teile auf der linken Seite. Bei einer erneuten Veröffentlichung sind jeweils andere Teile "verschwunden". Gibt es da eine Lösung?

    When publishing double-sided documents, parts on the left side "disappear". When publishing again, other parts "disappear". Is there a solution?

  13. bad export of styles' tags

    I have a problem with bag export of the styles' tags to ePUB with the latest InD. It's shortens the filled names of the HTML classes in the CSS file and makes some own different names in the .html files itself. It's quite messy then :(

    Could be kind of this previously reported issue: https://indesign.uservoice.com/forums/601180-adobe-indesign-bugs/suggestions/38520238-export-tagging

    The problem did not occure when exporting from InD 14.0.3

  15. graphic frame corners not rounding in publish online document

    operating system: Catalina (latest update 10.15.5)
    Have generated online published file in both 2019 and 2020 Indesign

    
To obtain evenly rounded corners on tables in my document I copied the table into a graphic frame and then rounded the corners of the frame. This renders fine when I create a pdf but for some reason when I generate an online publication from indesign one side of the graphic frame edges aren't rounded anymore. The rounding issue only happens with these graphic frames, objects with rounded edges render just fine.

    See images for examples of what it should look like and…

  20. 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.
