We previewed an extension idea a few months back that could Place HTML into InDesign for ePub.
We’ve been working on it ever since, but have run into several hiccups with InDesign. We’ve decided to put this project on hold for the time being and will incorporate some of the interactivity ideas into the next version of in5.
One of the top interactivity requests from EPUB creators was the desire to include Scrollable Frames in EPUBs (and potentially Publish Online documents). We’re working with Chad Chelius from InCopySecrects to make this a reality. Stay tuned.
Update: Scrolling Frames (for EPUB, Publish Online, etc) now available.
Problems are usually reported by clients or end users.
After all, if you already knew about the problem, it would probably be fixed, right? 😉
In this article, I’ll show you some ways that you get info from end users to help solve your problems faster.
Version 2.6 of in5 makes several improvements and gives you more ability to control the output.
These improvements come without any visible changes to the user interface, hence we’re calling this the “hidden gem” release.
InDesign has many strengths as an interactive layout tool.
One of its limitations, however, is that it doesn’t let you set a target attribute when creating a hyperlink. The target attribute lets you control how a hyperlink is open.
In this article, I’m going to take you on a deep dive of a new features that we’ve added in in5 version 2.6: Advanced Hyperlink Targeting.
Not only can you use this feature to control links in your web-based HTML, it also gives you a high degree of control in Web Apps, Baker Framework apps, and PhoneGap apps.
