Which program will your client use to display the files if not PDF?
I will be sending him a link to the file in Creative Cloud, so he'll be using his internet browser.
Hi there... Im looking for the same answer... Has anyone out there found a solution to the OP's question?
Currently I'm paying $30 a month to issu.com just to have them host a small 20 page PDF catalog that I made.
Ideally, I'd like to store the original indesign file in my CC folder and then just send clients a link to the file...
Unfortunately... as of right now, the client will only see one page at a time...
That is not the way it was intended to be viewed, so I can't use this CC feature unless someone can answer
the Original Poster's question. There's has got to be away to allow the viewer to see two page spreads instead
of just ONE page at a time.
Remember that to view an InDesign file you need to have a copy of the program. Will all viewers have one? If not, then it doesn't make sense to do it this way. There are ways to set up a PDF for the type of view you want.
Not true when viewing through Creative Cloud.
Good to know, Bob. Thanks
Export as PDF with spreads checked.
Thanks for the comment Willi Adelberger, but the point of using the indesign file and the Creative Cloud link sharing feature is that I can skip over the PDF pain in the rear process.
This way, the client can review the file in their prefered web browser by simply clicking on the link I send them.
The huge perk is that I can make changes to this design and they will appear LIVE... without the need to save a new "revised" PDF.
But I need the 2 page spread View.
Otherwise its a pointless feature for me.
Would like to see a solution to this please. It effectively allow CC to act as a flatplan for production of publications, which would be hugely helpful.
The only solution is to export PDF. If someone has not InDesign he can't view the original documents in live view. Your expectations will never meet reality.
They have access to the InDesign. Would just like them to be able to view all pages within the document as thumbnails in CC rather than one page at a time.
If you have CC you can put the InDesign file there and supply anyone a link to review the layout.
Thanks, how can you let them see the layout as a whole, spreads and all, rather that having to flick through each page individually? If you upload a 32 page document, it will show the first page with arrows to flick through other pages, I would like to view the whole 32 pg document as thumbnails...possible as one indesign doc?
The only way that will work is if they download and open the file on their machine.
OK Guys..... I completely "GET it".... Placing the file in the CC folder and sending a link to a CLIENT to review the WHOLE entire Indesign Document
as if the client had the software is asking for a lot.
I also agree that this would only be possible if the client had Indesign installed on their machine.
I do not think that we're asking for a miracle, by seeking a feature "tweak" that would allow a 2 page view (1 spread) vs a Single Page view.
After all ... the feature we need already exists, except we're missing the 2nd page.
Why can't we get to view page 1 and page 2, at the same time?
This can't be that big of an issue.
For example... A single page view of a wedding album that has ONE panoramic image covering the entire left page and the entire right page
will likely not be enjoyed by the client paying for the design.
They need to see both pages at the same time.
I hope this explanation gets the point across.
Also I really hope someone can figure it out or MAKE it happen already because to me, it seems like
a natural and common sense option that should be included.
Thank you jaimeTimeShots - you have hit the nail on the head!
