  2. Publish Online documents have become very slow to load

    Since the dashboard update, analytics 'since published' will NOT load.

    We're also noticing publish online documents are very slow to load initially.

    I'm presuming this is all server side issues at Adobe and would like to know if its being fixed.

    Are you forcing browsers to cache online publications before loading?

    These are both major issues that might force us to see alternative solutions if not fixed soon.

  3. translation German

    See here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign-discussions/wrong-translation-in-german-version-of-indesign/td-p/12853784

    Object→Object Export Options: EPUB tab:
    epub:type should be translated to epub:Typ and not "Schrift" which is basically the font type.

  4. Publish Online is a total disappointment

    Publish Online is an unreliable source for analytics, one its touted features, and it needs to be resolved immediately.

    Here's an idea: make it function in ANY web browser or get rid of it entirely. I don't care if it has a 90-minute lag time, please just start somewhere and fix this issue. I am so unbelievably frustrated that I was able to provide analytics after one hour of publishing my document and now, three days later, nothing appears. It's embarrassing and humiliating when part of my job relies on this to function as expected and it NEVER does when…

  5. 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

  8. Problem with the display of the navigation bar on an Android smartphone and tablet of a document published by publish online

    Hi all,

    I have a strange situation with a document that I created in InDesign and then published online using "Publish Online". From there I got a link to share.

    On the desk, everything is fine. But the problem is with Android devices where the options tab with next page, previous page, download button and others disappears after a few seconds and there is no way to get it back.

    It is not possible to navigate between the pages of the document.

    This is the bar with the options I am talking about in the attachment.

    Is there something that…

  9. Publish Online menu inactive after one use

    Indesign 16.0.2
    When you go to the menu File/publish online it's works the first time you use it. But, 5 minute later when you want to update your publish online document the menu File/Publish Online option is inactive (grey).
    I must quit Indesign, relaunch it and after that, the menu File/publish online is active.

  14. Actual size (with web artboards) does not shows the actual pixels sizes

    Issue to visualise correctly the zoom in indesign

    with 2 identical artboards for web (300x300px) one in indesign and one in photoshop, click on 'view' 'actual size'.. the difference is huge

    Seems photoshop scaling looks ok

    and indesign is way bigger than the real size in Pixels

  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…

  18. 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.

  19. Footnote numbering in InDesign does not heed setting

    I have a single indd-document containing a book with 300+ footnotes in it. I have set the footnote numbering to "Restart numbering at every --> Section" (i.e. Chapter).

    But when I export the document to an EPUB file, InDesign does not heed this setting but keep running the numbering up to "348".

    I suspect this is a bug in inDesign 2020 (15.0.1), as there seem to be no good reason for this behavior.

  20. 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>.
