  2. Problem with Keyboard Shortcuts

    On a Mac [10.14.6] I set the F8 key to bring up the Paragraph Style Option box [image attached]. With the most recent update the F8 key does not work unless I have the Paragraph Style Panel open [image attached]. This is an obscure bug but it just means I need one more panel open to access the F8 shortcut. This short cut has worked for a zillion years until now. I hope this is of assistance. Thanks.

  3. Emailing a document video won't go away

    Opening a saved document and a 'helpful tip' video clip about emailing a document is stuck in the middle of the screen and won't close or go away, can't click on it and nothing works to get rid of it.

  4. type tool behaves as selection tool

    Hello guys, I'm experimenting this issue in which the Type tool is behaving as the selection tool.

    Instead of selecting text, by double-clicking or click and drag, it just moves the text frame around. Double click is not highlighting the text either.

    I'm running Indesign 16.1.0.20 on Big Sur 11.2.1

    Thanks

  9. Recents on Home screen Ability to pin indesign projects on the home landing screen

    A frustration with indesign and an opportunity to improve. As a user of indesign I want to be able to pin certain projects I am working on and see them on the landing home screen. (Currently I have to rely on win folders to store projects).

    So that I can easily locate projects that are of value and referenced not so regularly

  10. New Share tutorial animation loops continuously when opening ID, with no affordance to terminate.

    When opening the application, ID can dramatically improve the user experience and the opportunity to show new features (in this case, the new Share feature) by giving the user a choice to opt-into learning about a said new feature by presenting the user with a [yes | no | maybe later | never show again] dialog message.

    Currently, on a MacBook Pro running Catalina (10.15.7), ID 2021 immediately starts looping a tutorial animation within a fairly large overlay which appears to be intended to promote the new Share functionality. This all happens immediately when the rest of the UI is…

  11. set default open folder

    Upgraded to ID 16.0.1x64 today on a Win 10 64 system. File Open, or File Save, both want to use "This PC > Documents" and not the original file folder. Didn't have this problem prior to the upgrade.

    How can I set the default file open folder?

  12. Option-Click and Drag

    InDesign 16.0.1. (and prior)

    I updated to Catalina OS on Mac. Option-Click no longer works as it should. It is supposed to straight duplicate one time. Now it is acting as a step and repeat and is creating 2 duplicates instead of one. Please help. I can't find how to fix this.

  13. InDesign 16.0.2 still does not allow making new folder under SaveAs dialog and Cmd+P also does not work

    Updated version of InDesign (16.0. and 16.0.2) does not allow making new folder when using Save As or Open dialog on MacOS Mojave. Also you can not use Cmd+P shortcut in the same dialog - this is very helpful shortcut that opens current folder in Finder. Adobe WHY are you bringing new bugs all the time for things that worked just great :(

  14. Superscript and subscript buttons do not produce the font’s superscript and subscript figures

    Clicking on the superscript/subscript buttons scales the selected glyphs to a seemingly random size, placing them on a default height,
    * ignoring all of the dedicated OS/2 values in the font: subscriptXOffset, subscriptYOffset, subscriptXSize, subscriptYSize, superscriptXOffset, superscriptYOffset, superscriptXSize, superscriptYSize,
    * and ignoring subs, sinf and sups OpenType features in the font.

  19. Smart guides not working at all

    Snap to grid and smart guides or any function where cursor automatically snaps to edge, corner, or center point is not working. I am currently using version 16.0. I have restarted the program 5 times. All of these features are check marked and turned on despite the features not working at all.

    I will not work on my project because of this issue. I need to rely on the precise support of smart guides and snap to guides in order to do what I have to do. I'm very disappointed with this bug and upset I'm set back so much…

  20. Disappearing cursor with Big Sur v11.0.1 and InCopy 2019 v14.0.2

    Last month, we had issues with InCopy 2020, so we switched back to the more reliable 2019 version. Now, I (foolishly) updated the Big Sur (version 11.0.1) and now my cursor has disappeared and I have tried every suggestion to no avail (restarting the program, restarting the computer, and trashing InCopy preferences).

    I'm running InCopy 2019 (v 14.0.2) on my 2017 iMac Pro, 3.2 GHz 8-core Intel Xeon W, with 64 GB 2666 MHz DDR4.

    Any suggestions would be helpful (and by the way, I can't see the cursor in Layout, Story, or Galley mode).

    Thank you!
