I have a query from a client on the adobe browser window that opens up when you publish an epub.

They're asking about the buttons at the bottom of the menu bar and if I can find out any information on what their purpose is. I think their capabilities are probably pretty limited, but wondered if anyone can help shine a light on their purpose please.  thanks in advance!

Please see attached screengrab for ref:

  1. Toggle Thumbnail – this doesn’t seem to serve much of a purpose since we just have one page – is it possible to remove this from the navigation bar?
  2. Share –  is it possible to disable this?
  3. Report Abuse – who does this reporting go to? Basically, what happens when you click that and is it possible to remove?
  4. Language – are you able to remove or disable this button?
  5. It appears that you are able to get an embed code when you use this button – is it possible to disable that?

Publish Online is NOT an epub and if you look at the export dialog your question will be answered:

No, it is not possible to remove the other buttons (aside from the share and embed ones). Those are part an parcel of Adobe's online publishing platform.

 

It is possible to export to html and serve the file on your own or the client's web server, though. Either via In5

or the free html export plugin found here:

The free plugin works, but requires a bit of manual coding to make it presentable.

It is NOT a PDF, either. I'm not trying to nitpick but if you want help, you really need to get this down. PDF is even further away from Publish Online than EPUB is.

 

I'll second the recommendation of in5. It's a brilliant solution for getting InDesign content out as HTML and does not depend on any third-party services once you've generated the files.
