    BTW, in the tests I did, there's no difference in using a split document or not. InDesign just crashes...

    BTW, probably due to the bug, InDesign version CC 2021 / 16.0.1 on Catalina crashes upon exporting. So I can't output the ePub and code the hundreds of references manually (I know, it's a horrible job but it needs to be done). Thanks for going from bad to worse...

    How many developers does it take to fix these endnote references, back and forth ???
    And how many developers and product managers have been asleep, while coding this ?

    Any person with just a slight notion of HTML and HREFs knows what's going wrong here.
    This isn't rocket science !!

    Well Myra, alt-copy doesn't work. At least not always, even if you stay on the same page or spread. This has been a nasty bug for 10 years now. Alt-drag used to work for some actions (like Next/Previous State) for DPS, but Show/Hide Buttons don't. And it's probably not going to change, since Adobe is not very interested in fixing these interactions for PDF. And to be honest, I don't blame them. Apart from HyperLinks and Forms, interactive PDF is dead in the water...

    For the ISO standard, the DIN institute has rounded off the exact sizes of the A-series to whole mm values. So going from A4 to A5, the rounding-off flips, and cuts the smaller half of the mm. (Hence the 297 mm for A4 is actually a bit too large...)https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_216

    1. SVG is becoming more and more common for all kinds of design elements. Logos, icons, symbols, anything vector based is pretty well-served by SVG and can cater for print and digital at the same time !
    At this moment, I need to open the file in Illustrator, choose "Save as" to save it as a native Illustrator file, and place that one. Any change in the SVG doesn't reflect in my linked AI file.

    2. No editing necessary, although I think it wouldn't be too difficult for InDesign to be able to interpret the SVG content. Illustrator considers SVG files as a native format, so using the Edit function can open the file directly into Illustrator.

    3. No need for SVG output. InDesign is capable of much more sophisticated designs than possible with SVG, so exporting it would not be able to yield a reliable result.

    And while you're on it, kick those product managers of Bridge to chime in as well !!
