  1. Restore video from URL media option

    For some unexplained reason the Video from URL option has been removed from InDesign 2020. This needs to be restored ASAP as there are people using this feature.

    Moveover, it needs a minor improvement to allow HTTPS links (https://indesign.uservoice.com/forums/601180-adobe-indesign-bugs/suggestions/37474690-place-a-video-from-a-url-with-https).

    It was a big mistake to not query the community before removing this and it should be a simple thing to restore.

  3. 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 exported epub document is viewed in Apple's Books application, and Adobes Digital Editions 4.5 with similar problems in both epub viewers, where all Arabic text is either invisible or messed up and shifted from its location.

    • Attached images from InDesign document, and epub file which was exported from InDesign.

    • Links from…

  4. publish online navigation buttons disappear in browsers and don't come back

    When I view a published document, the browser based navigation buttons and menu for downloading disappear after a couple seconds and don't come back without hitting F5. This is unworkable. Please change it so the nav arrows remain on the screen, even in full screen mode. I can't have my clients struggling to go to the next page. This happens in Chrome and Firefox. In Edge, they disappear, but will reappear if I move my mouse to the edge of the screen - also very frustrating because I just want to click through the document without struggling to find the…

  6. 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…

  8. Publish Online feature has issues when viewed in iOS 13

    We are using the "Publish Online" feature inside Adobe Indesign to make some of our content available on our website. We've recently received reports from users with Apple iOS 13 mobile devices that the content is not displaying properly on those types of mobile phones. When the content first opens, if you double tap the page zooms in ok and double tapping again zooms out ok. However, if you try to pinch/zoom, the page blows up very large such that you can only see a couple words and you cannot pinch to get back out. Sometimes double-tapping again takes it…

  10. InDesign Publish Online Not Clickable on Windows in Chrome or Firefox

    Working in: Adobe InDesign CC 2018

    We recently published a guide online using Adobe Publish online. The clickable elements (buttons, interactive elements) are not clickable on touchscreen PCs in Chrome or Firefox, but the touchscreen works (not as clean, but works). This issue is not present when the PC users are in safari or internet explorer. All content was created and published on a Mac, and no macs have had an issue.

    The content is private, but I can send the guide to anyone from Adobe on a person-person basis.

  11. Can't change the names of Object States

    In InDesign 16.1, the entry box for changing the names of Object States flashes open and closed in a fraction of a second—too fast for entering a new name. This was not a problem in previous versions of InDesign.
