  1. Publish Online

    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?

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  6. Indesign publish online page transitions not working

    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.

  10. publish

    Latest version of ID...

    A MP3 file placed into ID with On page load selected in the media panel and placed anywhere in the layers panel, or even alone on a page with no other objects, audio does not play On Page Load when exported to Publish Online, plays fine if you create a button and have that button play the file though.

  12. Publish Online safari and chrome viewer zoom in

    Publish Online 파일을 생성한 후 아이폰에서 열면 safari 나 chrome 에서는 확대를 했다가 다시 축소가 되지 않습니다.
    그런데 Explorer app을 다운 받아서 Explorer로 열면 확대 축소가 잘 됩니다.

  14. Windows 15.0.3 broke Book TOC when exporting to EPUB; works in 15.0.2

    Windows 10 15.0.3 broke Book TOC when exporting to EPUB; works in 15.0.2

    Not only did 15.0.3 eliminate Book > Export to EPUB option of EPUB Version 2.0.1, it changed the Table of Contents to include duplicate entries linking to every PAGE within a chapter. The Book.epub file had a separate .xhtml file for every page in the book, rather than one .xhtml file per chapter and one TOC entry per chapter. This makes the Table of Contents useless.

    Reverting InDesign back to 15.0.2 fixes the problem.

    Here are the parameters I used to export the EPUB:
    Book Menu : …

  15. Develop Publish Online for more than one "owner"

    We use your Publish Online function for our white papers, published online on our web. We love a lot about the function BUT there is some important functions we struggle with:


    • Only the owner of the PDF can edit in the published version. We have a team of designers and become dependent on one of them.

    • The PDF is not responsive to other devices

    • Statistics can only be viewed/monitored by the owner, often the designer not the functions that necessary needs this insights.

    Would love if you can develop these functions futher so we can stay Adobe-based!

    Thank you!

  17. Hyperlinks don't work once published online

    I have created an Interactive Road Map with animation, sound and hyperlinks. This was working with InDesign 2018 to 2019 when I first published it. However, I needed to update the road map but then once published online using InDesign 2020 all the hyperlinks and sound stopped working. I've tried going back using older versions of InDesign but those features seem to stop functioning. I've even tried re-inserting the URLs for the hyperlinks.

    Check link https://indd.adobe.com/view/29ca9449-525d-49d4-880a-70887721f8a0

    The hyperlinks are on the station names and text boxes.

  20. Endnotes don't export to ePub

    EPUB Export Endnotes with Hyperlinks

    Version: InDesign CC 2019 – 14.0.3

    Steps to Reproduce:


    1. Use the endnote feature and in one of the endnotes (preferably after the first one), add a hyperlink.


    2. Export the InDesign document to EPUB


    Expected Result: All endnote references are hyperlinked and the numbers for each endnote are backlinked back to the reference.

    Actual Result:
    Endnote number is missing for all endnotes after the hyperlink that was added to the endnote and no linking occurs after the manual hyperlink. Indesign crashes.
