  1. EPUB Export

    Please make EPUB3 the default when opening the EPUB export dialog box. It has been the standard for years now, and letting people export as EPUB 2.01 will only create EPUBs that don't meet the modern standard. I was disappointed to see in CC2021 that the default is still the EPUB version that is several years out of date.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. Arabic exported to EPUB (Fixed Layout) doesn't show properly

    • InDesign 15.1.2 / Mac OS 10.15.6

    • Create an InDesign document with Arabic content. Apply any Arabic font.

    • When exporting to EPUB (Fixed Layout) we should see the Arabic text appear in the epub viewer in similar manner as it shows in InDesign document.

    • The exporting epub document is viewed in Apple's Book and Adobes Digital Editions 4.5 with similar problems where all Arabic text is either invisible or messed up and shifted from its location.

    • Attached an InDesign document, and epub file exported from InDesign.

  7. 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?

  8. 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

  9. 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

  14. 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.

  17. 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 : …

  19. 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.
