  1. 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. 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.

  9. 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 : …

  11. 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.

  14. Page Transition - Interactivity Preview

    On Indesign CC, I applied simple page transition on 2 pages. However, the transition is not previewing in the EPUB Interactivity Preview. When you go to the next page, it no page transition applies.

    So I tried doing it on Indesign CS6, and it shows the page transition.

    Can anybody help me with this?

  16. animation file from indesign, 'recovered files' every time in trash (indesign didn't crash)

    when I save an animation file from indesign, I get a 'recovered file' every time I restart my Mac. I try to remove it, but then my document starts going crazy. (indesign didn't crash, it just happens)

    animation in indesign works fine, but the maps keep coming and it is irritating.

  17. EPUB; Exporting a numbered list to a reflowable pub

    When working with "numbered list: in Indesign, paragraph style work great.

    However after working and exporting it to a reflowable Epub it doesnt respect alignment and moves inward. I have looked up for anyone who has encountered the same problem making sure I wasn't the only one and yup there are others with the same issue.

    I would like not to, for every numbered list in every book, to convert numbering to text. This is something I have seen as an issue since someone commenting since 2014 and not receiving any solution.

    I need to know if there is some…

  18. Mystery white hairlines showing up on edges of Published Online Document

    I am having an issue with documents published online and viewed in Google Chrome. For some reason there are thin white hairlines showing up on the edge of certain pages that are not in the actual InDesign document. On a couple of pages in my book, I have made the background color the same as the background color that shows up in the browser, but these hairlines are still showing the edge of the page.

    Screenshots of the white hairlines attached.

  19. Footnote numbering in InDesign does not heed setting

    I have a single indd-document containing a book with 300+ footnotes in it. I have set the footnote numbering to "Restart numbering at every --> Section" (i.e. Chapter).

    But when I export the document to an EPUB file, InDesign does not heed this setting but keep running the numbering up to "348".

    I suspect this is a bug in inDesign 2020 (15.0.1), as there seem to be no good reason for this behavior.

  20. 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>.
