  1. Table headers disappear when pasting

    Several times now I've cut & pasted a table from one part of my document to another only to find the headers disappear. Inserting a row makes the headers reappear.

    I'm usig 12.1.0.56 x64 build.

    • AGLFN: ZWJ, ZWNJ, ZWS in PDF

      Indesign is not written ZWJ (U+200D), ZWNJ (U+200C), ZWS (U+200B) with its glyph name uni200D, uni200C, uni200B respectively.

      This is not helping in copying the text with ZWJ (U+200D), ZWNJ (U+200C), ZWS (U+200B) from PDF.

      These non-printing characters are copied has "space" instead.

      These non-printing characters in Indic scripts are part of text. With and without these characters, text can changes its meaning.

      Please support these characters with AGLFN glyph names in fonts in Indesign, PDF export feature.

          • InDesign CC 2017 will not Package files.

            Never had a problem Packaging files in CS6. Now on CC 2017 I have to do it manually, which is a real time waster. Why can't it be fixed? I don not use a server, which I understand can cause problems. Fonts can be Collected/Package but not Photoshop files (tie, jpeg, psd, etc.).

            • There is a chance you close your file without knowing you have not saved it!

              It is very simple, just follow the steps below:

              1. Create a new file.

              2. Type a letter (lets say "A" for example) and save your file.

              3. Change the letter to "B" [Notice the "*" beside the file name and the "Save" Option being enabled in the file menu, since the file has been changed]

              4. Save the file again. ["Save" command and "*" disappear]

              5. Now, undo the last change (Back to "A") and save.

              6. Now if you redo the change, you will have "B" in the screen, Notice that the file has changed since your last…

              • Placing and Moving Images Changes Opacity

                If I place an image and then try to move it within the bounding box, the opacity appears to change to around 50%. However, the opacity is still set to 100%. I can correct it by hitting Undo which reverts the image back to normal. From what I can tell, it is only a visual bug. Exporting the image doesn't show the change in opacity.

                I haven't been able to reproduce this issue consistently but would say it happens around 80% of the time I try to move an image. Another interesting thing is that if the issue happens and…

                  • print dialog page size

                    Since the latest version, the print dialog box no longer clearly shows when the image area exceeds the page size on the preview in the lower left. Before, the image area that would not print would be greyed. That is no longer the case.

                                • repeatedly opening a template in a loop eventually crashes at app.open

                                  Repeatedly opening and closing a template via extendscript code (for means of batch production) causes InDesign to crash at and only at app.open(PATH).

                                  attached file is a bare bones jsx that opens/closes the accompanying blank template either 100000 times or until it crashes (which it has done within an hour each time I have run it)

                                  Seems to crash anywhere from 40 to 1500 iterations in.

                                  • Screenflickering - Screen turns black when moving objects.

                                    When i drag and drop a Textframe my Screen flickers black for a second - almost every damn time. This happens for me and most of my colleagues and it is horrible to work with.

                                    I feel like it got worse after installing the latest "Tablehead" fix that fixed the disapearing tableheads.

                                    • "Save As” on a Mac to a Windows network server

                                      I use a Mac but our files are kept on a LAN Windows server. If I want to 'save as’ rather than just ‘save’, I get an error meaning I have to save to my desktop then copy the file to the server.

                                      • Profiles equal to the Output-Intend get lost on PDF-Export

                                        When exporting a PDF all profiles equal to the Output-Intend (which in my case is the Document-Colorspace PSO Coated V3) get lost when exporting.

                                        I have created a small test-file with an PSO Coated V3 Image and an ISO Coated V2 Image.

                                        When Exporting as PDF X4 with Output-Intend Set to PSO Coated V3 the Image that IS PSO Coated V3 looses its profile and the same for the ISO Coated V2 when the Output-Intend is set to that.

                                        This is horrible for Colormanagement. I've been in contact with "Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG" and they suggested to report this to Adobe…

                                        • Horizontal page display in Pages pane should be spine aligned

                                          When View Pages Horizontally is chosen in the Pages pane, the ('floating left'—CSS speak) spread thumbnails should all align on their spines, making the first odd-numbered page flushed to the right as the even page to the left.
