Android ›Aquafadas Viewer‹ – Wrong preview and crashes

I made an app for iOS with sublayouts and anchors. Everything is working fine. If i am watchin it in the Android version of Aquafadas Viewer (newest version) i see several errors:

  • Some vector icons (pathes in Indesign or *.eps-files) are not rendered sharp or are blurry
  • Hidden layers are shown automatically
  • The app crashes after swiping through 10–15 pages

Is that only a bug in the Viewer or will this errors be in the final Android-App too?

password protection in apps

heinz 2 years ago in Content Creation • updated by Arnaud Rossi (Head of Support) 4 weeks ago 2


Is there a way to provide certain areas of an app with a password protection? So only the user who knows the password has an access to this area.
If this isn`t possible, is it possible to send only certain user the app and not the publicly (like it would be in the AppStore)?
I would appreciate an answer very much.

Implement different languages

Edu Couchez 2 years ago in Content Creation / InDesign Authoring • updated by Arnaud Rossi (Head of Support) 4 weeks ago 10

hi all! I'm new to Aquafadas. I'm looking for information about how to implement different languages in a book. I'm not sure if I can do it with only one app, or I should publish different books for each language.

Thanks in advance!


Colors very different on iOS and Android.

olagil 3 years ago in Content Creation / Aquafadas Viewer iOS • updated by Arnaud Rossi (Head of Support) 4 weeks ago 3
We are having a problem with colors in our publication :
I'm in the test phase, is it possible that its a bug from the iOS viewer ?
1. The same color in the indesign palet appears very differently on the same page if used on a bloc that is a text bloc and a bloc that isn't. I'm talking about a significant color change : this is the RGB of the pink : 215/50/124 if you look at a rgb color chart (like this one : you'll have an idea. If its a simple block it looks the same but if its a text block or the color of the text, it looks purple : 255/0/255 is the closest in the color chart. We tried using cmyk, rgb, lab... nothing works. Except in Lab mode where the color is consistent on the same page but my pink will appear purple.
2. This problem doesn't show in the Android viewer. The colors are pretty accurate in android but very disgusting in iOS viewer.

any ideas ?

Thanks a lot !

indesign cc crashes on generating project (aveMag)

antonio dolce 3 years ago in Content Creation / InDesign Authoring • updated by Arnaud Rossi (Head of Support) 4 weeks ago 2
Hi all,
I just finished creating a new aquafadas publication (10 articles, with 5/6 pages each) with buttons and navigation.
But I can't generate the whole project since Indesign CC crashes systematically.
I can generate one page at a time, but it takes ages for a single page, so this is not feasible with my deadline.
Is there a way to troubleshoot a publication created with aquafadas plug-in for windows 7?
Is there a way to speed up things. The aquafads plug-in is terribly slow on a 4 gb ram with plenty of hd spaces.

Gestes et navigation

Hubert 2 years ago in Content Creation / InDesign Authoring • updated by Jerome [Aquafadas] 2 years ago 2
à l'image de ce qu'il est possible de faire avec des solutions comme Origami ou Pandasuite, pourriez-vous envisager la possibilité d'ajouter davantage de gestes à certains enrichissements :
- le défilement dans une séquence d'images en boucle via un appui long par exemple,
- le bouton classique pourrait avoir deux comportements : un au tap, un au double tap (ou pour un appui long)
Je me permets de reposter à nouveau sur cette demande récurrente de la part des concepteurs qui prend encore plus de sens avec la sortie imminente de l'iPad Pro et de la technologie Force Touch qui ré-invente un peu le roll-over pour les tablettes.

Share projects

Electric Valery 3 years ago in Content Creation / InDesign Authoring • updated by anonymous 3 years ago 6
People need to share project to their customers ; in present we need to export a zave and to explain the process : download the viewer in the device, download the zave file, upload it with the navigator / IP address method... It's too complicated for our customers who sometimes doesn't really understand this process... In dps an other digital solutions (origami, pansuite..) we can simply share a project by sending a mail from the viewer ; and then when the customers is connected to his viewer, all the shared projects appears automatically...

I think it's a productivity essential part of the app creation process. Testing and sharing is needed for validating a project in enterprises...

Désespérément long

Hubert 2 years ago in Content Creation / InDesign Authoring • updated by Arnaud Rossi (Head of Support) 4 weeks ago 2
je relance ce gros problème pour moi de lenteur du plug-in dans sa version actuelle 3.6.01.
J'ai pu générer mes pages hier en 30 minutes. Aujourd'hui, au bout de 50 minutes, il ne m'en a pas généré la moitié. Qu'est-ce qui selon vous peut engendrer de telles différences de temps d'un jour sur l'autre ?
Je n'ai bien sûr quasiment pas modifié mes fichiers entre hier et aujourd'hui.
Merci beaucoup pour votre aide.

Image Caption enrichment

Capicua 3 years ago in Content Creation / InDesign Authoring • updated by Arnaud Rossi (Head of Support) 4 weeks ago 11
The image caption has a limit of characters that makes very difficult to optimise so instead of adapting to your text length it limits you to a specific numbers of characters when its should be the other way around... if u manage to fixed this on your next update i will appreciate it !!!
