it's considering each spread as one page
Does this make the difference? In the General tab of the Publish Online dialog box:
- Single: Displays a single page at a time in the web browser
- Spreads: Displays two pages at a time in the web browser.
is there any way that users can search the text of the online document
The file is being viewed in a web browser. You can use the browser's Find command, but that will only search the current page. I don't know any way to search the entire document at this point.
The only way I know to do a search is to use the Include a PDF version option, and search the PDF file.
I'm thinking Bob Levine recently stated "stay away from the PDF version on Publish Online" on another thread, but I don't recall that he stated why. Do you know, Steve?
Offhand, I don't know why he'd say that. It can only be a print PDF (not interactive).
Thanks. That option between displaying single and displaying spread only affects how it appears. I want my document to appear as a spread, but I want the pages to be numbered the same way the pagination is set up in indesign. So if you had the print catalog, what is listed as page 83 in the catalog would still be page 83 on the online version. This is so strange, because both indesign and acrobat recognize pages that are displayed in a spread as their own numbered pages so I'm not sure why the publish online version combines them into one.
