  2. 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…

  4. Mystery white hairlines showing up on edges of Published Online Document

    I am having an issue with documents published online and viewed in Google Chrome. For some reason there are thin white hairlines showing up on the edge of certain pages that are not in the actual InDesign document. On a couple of pages in my book, I have made the background color the same as the background color that shows up in the browser, but these hairlines are still showing the edge of the page.

    Screenshots of the white hairlines attached.

  5. 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>
    <thead>
    <td>
    <p>Text</p>
    </td>
    </thead>
    <tfoot>
    <td>
    <p>Text</p>
    </td>
    </foot>
    <tbody>
    <td>
    <p>Text</p>
    </td>
    </tbody>

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

  6. Master page shadow/effects cause white knockouts when published online

    When using the Publish Online feature, effects applied to elements on a master page is causing white knockouts in the online viewer. Further testing showed that having type behind the master page effects appears to make the knockout go away.

  10. mapping styles

    After assigning a Class in the Para or Character Style definition dialog (in Export Tagging), the Class usually disappears. So when I go to Edit All Export Tags accessed from a flyout in the paragraph, character, or object styles panel, I have to reassign that Class.

  11. Sound not working when Publish Online

    I'm working on a book to be an epub. The epub version works perfectly (sound/animation), then I had to make another version for the publish online. The problem was, when convert to publish online directly, sound was going on way before it's page, for example, on the first page we were hearing the next 4 pages almost at the same time. I solved this problem by inserting play/pause buttons for the sounds. It was working perfectly fine last week, and now this week, some pages don't play sound at all. But in the epub preview in InDesign, everything is working…

  13. overlay panel

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

  14. 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!!!

  15. Endnote Links Not Functioning When Published Online

    I have a complex document (725 pages across 15 chapters) in which each chapter contains between 75 and 300 endnotes that I imported from the most current version of MS Word into InDesign 2021 (v. 16.4 x64). When I export a chapter as a PDF, everything works reasonably well (although links between in-text endnote numbers and endnote references simply jump between applicable page numbers, rather than to the notes themselves, but I can live with that). But when I publish a chapter or the whole online, only the bookmarks from the InDesign TOC feature work. The links between endnote numbers…

  16. publish online mobile

    InDesign 16.4

    When i publish a document using 'publish online' it doesn't work correctly on mobile. When you first load it up on mobile the navigation bar at the bottom is there, but if you click anything on the page the navigation bar disappears. This then means you can't navigate through the rest of the brochure.

    I've tried this on multiple mobile browsers including Chrome, Edge & Brave and the same happens on each.

    This is a major issue for us as a lot of people will want to view this document on mobile.

    I've attached a couple of screenshots

  19. Sound not working in interactive epub

    This epub played fine before now nothing that I do makes the sound play. I removed/reimported them but they no longer play in preview or when pubished. These are small free sound effect files like bird songs etc. All royalty free.

  20. Object states button disappears after click

    In a multi-state object, the button that activates the MSO disappears after being clicked. No where in the settings have I told it to disappear after being clicked.

    Version: I'm running InDesign 16.3.2 (though I downgraded to 16.2 and am still having the problem)
    Steps to reproduce issue:
    I created the MSO using buttons/forms and the object states panel. Close button should revert back to original state (star).
    Expected Result: Button should reappear.
    Actual Result: Button is gone after click.

    Video of ePub preview attached.

    The problem is both in the ePub preview and when published online.
