  1. 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.

  2. publish online

    I have used Publish Online many times in the past. I am trying to locate an older document that I published two years ago. When I click on the previous link, I receive a 404 message.

    So, I attempted to publish it again directly from InDesign, but the function sent an error unable to complete message.

    So, I tried to access the publish dashboard, and then I receive a "You Do Not have access to Publish Online service."

  3. Problem with Publish online.

    Version 13 - very repeatedly happening for the first time today. A previously published link to a document no longer works -- when I click I get a 404 User error saying that the document does not exist. And when I go to "Publish Online" within InDesign I get an error saying that I "cannot use this feature at this time. Check your network connectivity." Repeats even when I shut down and come back into the document.

  4. 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!

  6. 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>

    &lt;thead&gt;
    
    &lt;td&gt;
    &lt;p&gt;Text&lt;/p&gt;
    &lt;/td&gt;
    &lt;/thead&gt;
    &lt;tfoot&gt;
    &lt;td&gt;
    &lt;p&gt;Text&lt;/p&gt;
    &lt;/td&gt;
    &lt;/foot&gt;
    &lt;tbody&gt;
    &lt;td&gt;
    &lt;p&gt;Text&lt;/p&gt;
    &lt;/td&gt;
    &lt;/tbody&gt;

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

  7. export tagging

    The epub 3.0 reflowable and html exports are dropping characters from the export tags in the html/xhtml files. This just started happening in the last few weeks (not sure exactly when it started), perhaps early Aug 2019. My version of InDesign is upgraded to CC V14.0.3 x64, and it is still happening. I've attached 4 screenshots: 2 show the export tags in Paragraph styles, and the other 2 show the files generated by InDesign (1 in html and 1 in xhtml from an epub export). Characters are dropped from the styles. It doesn't drop a character in all styles, and…

  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. 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?

  12. 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…

  16. Export Tagging: ‘i’ character in class name exports as blank space

    I just did the 2018 update, so I think it's the most recent version: 13.0 x64

    I have a document template that contains many character and paragraph styles with export CSS tags that contain the lowercase ‘i’ in them. This character is being exported as a blank space, which completely breaks the CSS, like this:
    should be: <p class="bright"></p>
    getting: <p class="br ght"></p>

    This problem was easily replicated in a fresh new document, so it’s something with InDesign, rather than my template file.

    This workflow involves complex style mapping through to CSS classes. Because so many of the classes contain…

    Thanks for sharing the CSS and document. Apparently, I was not able to reproduce the issue, Can you please try to creating new document with few paragraph styles and try exporting the document to HTML and see if the issue is resolved.

  17. overlay panel

    Adobe InDesign CC 2017, Mac

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

  18. 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!!!

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
