  1. 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…

  4. 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.

    Ver. 14.0.1

  5. HELP! Chrome PubOnline Embeds Unresponsive

    I've had this issue for a few months now. Clicking "Read Now" on embedded Publish Online documents enables full screen, but on many instances of Chrome the page is not sized correctly and the UI essentially freezes. Clicking the arrows does nothing. I can pull up the thumbnail toggle, but clicking on other pages does not bring them up. See attached picture. This issue is present on my Windows 10 desktop and laptop in both normal and incognito windows. Strangely, this issue is not present on my wife's Windows 10 desktop. Functionality is as it should be on Firefox, Edge,…

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. Footnote links lost when exporting to HTML

    Randomly the number and link are both missing, not all but some. Sometimes there could be just one footnote number or 10...but some or all are missing. The footenote references are there with the links, just not the footenote number/link.

  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. Inconsistent Embedded publish online full-screen behavior

    Inconsistent Embedded publish online full-screen behavior
    In short: when trying to view a document published online in WordPress in full-screen mode on an iOS device the document does not fill the screen, only the browser tab. This allows the URL hosted by Adobe to be seen, copied, or shared. I do not believe this is the intended behavior, it is a flaw which will lead me to find third-party solutions.

    iOS 11 - Safari and Edge browsers

  16. Videos and buttons get cut in half when placed over a 2 page spread in Publish online and Fixed layout EPUB

    When a video or button is placed across two pages on a spread, both gets cut in half, working separately on different pages. So, if video is played in Publish Online document or Fixed Layout EPUB, only half part is played.
    Similarly with buttons, only half button gets clicked.

  17. Graphics shift when using Publish Online

    When using Publish Online, graphic elements (mostly color blocks) move in the published version. Oddly enough, when you click to view thumbnails, the thumbnails look correct. (Example: navy color block on right page should align with color block on left page).

    Using InDesignCC.

  18. Bug in exporting lists to EPUB?

    The settings of margins in unordered lists is not heeded when exporting an InDesign document to EPUB. The export adds an "extra" margin which can't be changed anywhere. See attached files to view the problem (the left margin should be the same as the indent of the first line in the preceding paragraph).

  19. 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…

  20. Publish Online Dashboard Analytics disappearing...

    Apparently, the analytics for Publish Online are disappearing. Possibly anything before the most recent 25 are gone. Will those be returning? Can we recover that data? My clients need the info and sometimes request it months later, and we publish a ton of stuff using the system.
