What is Publish Online?
Publish Online lets you repurpose your print documents by publishing them online. You can publish a digital version of an InDesign document that works on any device, in any modern web browser, without the need to install a plug-in.
For a richer document viewing experience, you can publish an interactive InDesign document that includes buttons, slideshows, animation, audio, and video using the interactive authoring features of InDesign.
After you publish your documents, you can share the online document URL so anyone can view the document in a beautiful, simple, online reading experience, which is available on any device and on any platform. With a single click, you can quickly share the online document on social networks like Facebook and Twitter, or over email. The document can also be embedded on any website or blog using the embed code provided by clicking the embed option on the viewing layout.
