I set myself the challenge of doing an interactive portfolio to display my work.
I have a few things I want to be able to do which are currently not displaying properly when published, but look spot on when I use the EPUB preview spread within the app. Because I want to be able to distribute it for people to view easily without requiring special software, ideally this needs to be 'Publish Online'.
1) I have one page with a frame set up which will be where the videos play. These are in a multi-state object with rectangular buttons programmed to 'go to state' for each corresponding video. The buttons don't seem to be working.
2) I have a paper effect as an overlay with a blend mode, this is previewing as an image without the effects taking place.
3) I have one very busy page with 5 or 6 multistate video objects on, this page previews as offset to the corner against a white background (not the usual grey indesign online page)
Any tips would be much appreciated!

just a note on the Fixed Layout EPUB Preview panel ( what a name! ) :
This is not meant as a preview for Publish Online. It's a preview panel for Fixed Layout EPUBs.
In fact there is absolutely no preview for Publish Online in InDesign.
Just publish your document and test in all sorts of browsers and devices.
