Non-Printing Layers in Italics
InDesign no longer italicizes the name of non-printing layers in the layers panel. This made a scan of which layers were printing or non-printing quick and easy.
With the 2018 update, it seems like non-printing layer names just display as a SLIGHTLY lighter weight of the standard layer name type, making it hard to tell which layers are doing what at a glance.
An update that clearly demarcates non-printing layers would be appreciated.19 votes

Clicking between windows changes page on previous active window
Is anyone else having this odd behavior where clicking between windows change page shown on previous active window?
This happens on both new InDesign CC 2018 and CC 2017. I'm running:
- InDesign CC 2018 (Build 13.0.1)
- InDesign CC 2017.1 (Build 22.214.171.124)
- macOS 10.12.5
- iMac 27" Early 2013

Post it style note
A DTP program I used twenty years ago had a fantastic feature that has never been included in InDesign. At the bottom of the tools panel was a small area that when clicked and dragged off became a non-printing post-it note with the text active for immediate typing of a note.
It was really handy, as sometimes when doing a page layout you really want to note when you have say adjusted tracking, or indeed just a future reminder where for example you want to remind another designer to say edit an image etc.1 vote
Disabling UI scaling for high PPI displays causes truncated descriptions in "Preferences"
Installed InDesign CC 2018; when disabling UI scaling for high PPI displays, and restarting.
When "Preferences" are launched, all options turn up with their descriptions truncated, and replaced with an ellipsis.
Two images are attached, when UI Scaling is disabled vs enabled.
This is happening on MS Surface Pro 3, Windows 8.1, screen resolution 2160 x 1440 px (max supported by Surface Pro) and all resolutions below.3 votes

InDesign - Incorrect Spelling Field in SpellCheck NOT FIXED CC2018
The incorrect spelling field in spellcheck is still not fixed. I have had communication via twitter stating it has been and a screen shot showing difference between 2017 & 2018 releases.
It maybe slightly better but still not bright enough. This could be a very expensive issue if an incorrect spelling slips through.
Better still the field should be a different colour all together ie red text on white field background so this stands out as a possible error.

Creative Cloud Panel Broken
Creative Cloud panel won't let me change libraries from the drop down menu. ID was working perfectly fine before Mac iOS High Sierra. Having to close down ID every 5 minutes due to the cursor issue combined with the CC panel issue makes ID almost impossible to use.
Seriously, please get ID fixed.2 votes
Not enough contrast in Check Spelling dialogue box
InDesign CC 2017's Check Spelling results interface is fairly unreadable. In the "Not in Dictionary" and "Uncapitalized Sentence" box, more contrast is needed between the text and background shading. This is true in all appearance settings (dark, medium, light).
Thanks!2 votesClosed: Fixed · Abhinav Kaushik responded
Please update InDesign to the latest version, InDesign CC 2018 (13.0) for the fix of the issue.

Exactly the same as with Photoshop in Full-Screen, described here - https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-and-macoshighsierra.html - in Presentation Screen Mode, the InDesign Document does not expand to fill the entire display when the macOS Dock is shown.
