  1. Publish Online Effects Not Displaying

    I've published my document online, and when I do the image overlay isn't showing. It just shows my color block, but not the image below.

    It displays properly in the thumbnail preview though. See attachment for behavior issues.

    How do I resolve this?

  2. Landing page form doesn't work when accessed by Publish Online link

    But, the form does work when accessed by ePub and PDF.

    I suspect this issue is with the landing page, which my client had another contractor create, and the page is unsecure, FWIW.

    But, it just seems odd, that the form works (accepts and sends user info) coming from ePub and PDF, but does not when coming from the Publish Online link on browsers Firefox and Chrome. Safari does work.

    Any ideas?

    I've included links to the PDF and the Publish Online file. The link to the landing page/form in question is on the last page (page 8), click the…

  3. Publish Online is converting two pages of a spread into one wide page, and overriding PDF settings on the download

    I am publishing a document that is made up of 8.5 x 11" pages, set up as spreads. I want to publish it online with the view setting set to spreads, but be able to download it as a normal single page PDF.

    When I publish the document, I have to choose export as spreads so that two pages show up side by side on screen. The PDF export settings I am using under advanced are for single pages, but for some reason the PDF that is created is combining pages. So, for example, my 9 page document (a cover…

  6. 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.

  8. Publish online - embedded videos no longer playing in Chrome

    Have created an InDes file with embedded videos that I published online. Up until recently, all the videos have been playing in Chrome fine, however now they don't play. It loads the video, but when I click the play arrow, nothing happens. I can scrub through the video with the video controller, but not play it. The videos play fine on Safari.

    If I set the videos to autoplay, they do, however there is no way to pause or stop them, so it doesn't work when there are multiple videos on one page.

    This is a recent thing, last year…

  9. Publish Online Does not work if you have Allow Download (Print) chosen.

    Publish Online will get stuck at 98% if you choose the option to allow for download (Print). Even if you go to the Advanced tab and change the PDF settings, it still will not work.

  10. World-Ready composer breaks hyperlinks for Publish Online

    When the WR composer is applied to text, it breaks hyperlinks when the document is published via Publish Online. The hyperlinks work fine when the document is sent to PDF. The hyperlinks work fine when the WR composer is changed to the Adobe Paragraph Composer.
    This is to correct the title of this bug report, please reference it: https://indesign.uservoice.com/forums/601180-adobe-indesign-bugs/suggestions/33786565-publish-online-breaks-hyperlinks

  11. publish online

    There is an issue with interactions and Chrome on Windows 10 platform. Initial load shows all toolbars and navigation arrows, as soon as you try to interact with any element on the screen toolbar and nav arrows disappear. I get an angular error (attached screenshot). It happens on multiple devices. Any thoughts? I looked around on the forum and there was no real solution. Notice in the screenshot how the toolbar disappears from the bottom of the browser page.

  12. Endnote numbers superscripted overriden after Epub Export

    After importing a document with the non-static text endnotes option, I applied a superscript character style to the endnote numbers and when I export to ePub 3.0 the superscripting disappears. The numbers references in the text are still superscripted as they should be, but the superscripting on the numbers before each endnote at the end of document has been dropped. For some reason Epub Export overrides the applied character style.

  13. Publish Online URL links breaking website functionality

    File Created in Indesign CC 2017

    I have created a test interactive document with links to product DG012 on our company website.

    https://indd.adobe.com/view/da74b2d3-46b2-40cf-99e2-8201ddc6248a

    When the link is clicked from publish online it opens the page but seems to disable all scripts that run on the website. e.g. search field and add to cart no longer functions on that page.

    The website itself functions correctly if you navigate to the link manually ( http://www.lockhart.co.uk/Table-Service-and-Buffet/Buffet-Display/Display-Stands/Rafters-F usion-1-2-Board~p~DG012 ).

    Interestingly in safari the add to cart button functions but the search field is still disabled.

    On closer inspection it seems to be an iframe…

  15. Publish Online Dashboard empty

    My Publish Online Dashboard doesn't show any of my publications (the section "Document Trends" remains totally empy after I publish or update a document. Though I manage to push the documents online and the share-link URLs do work.

    Thx in advance for your concern

  16. Publish Online download PDF kills buttons/interactivity

    Steps to reproduce: post a Publish Online document, then click to download a PDF.

    Expected result: all buttons and interactivity would remain.
    Actual result: all buttons disappear and all interactivity is lost. Occurs in both Chrome and Safari, on desktop and handhelds.
    Using ID 13.1 on Mac High Sierra.

  17. Images pixelated when published online, if the frame is scaled

    Images inside scaled frames can be pixelated when published. It looks like the frame scaling is applied to the resolution i.e. a 10% scaled frame will have 10% of the desired resolution. Reproducible if 'Adjust scaling percentage' preference is set. Setting a higher export resolution in the 'Publish Online' dialogue doesn't fix it.

    InDesign CC 2018, probably older versions with Publish online.

  18. Character Style "Include Classes in HTML" checkbox removes whole tag

    The "Include Classes in HTML" checkbox doesn't work for Character Styles. Whereas paragraph styles and object style export without the class, character styles actually export without the tag at all—losing any formatting for that style. This is the case both in HTML and EPUB export.

  20. publish online

    Unable to create a URL from the Publish Online button. Does not complete task. Freezes at 98%. I have tried restarting (app and computer both) using a different file extension, etc.


    1. Indesign CC 2018 13.1.0 x64 Windows

    2. Click "publish online" from INDD or IDML file

    3. URL from the "publish online" command.

    4. Hangs out at 98% and doesn't produce a URL, but doesn't totally freeze the program. I can still use the program while this happens.
