  2. Tool fly outs appearing on wrong monitor

    I am using a dual monitor setup, my left hand monitor is a standard widescreen monitor, my right hand monitor is a Wacom Cintiq.

    When I have InDesign maximized on the Wacom and attempt to access a fly out menu on the toolbar it opens the fly out menu on the very right-hand edge of the standard monitor. Which makes it impossible for me to select from the fly out menu without having to put down the stylus, switch to a mouse, and repeat the action to bring up the fly out menu and then select the item I wanted.…

  4. The lists of entries for a cross reference is not ordered

    Some panels with items (e.g. links) can be ordered by clicking the column header. Others cannot. Among these are the lists of references to choose from when inserting a cross-reference. These seem to be totally unordered. As a result, it is a pain to look for the right one (e.g. choose from a few hundred in a large document). I consider this a bug because other panels do have this ordering

  5. conflict of making your document smaller than your margins

    InDesign CC 2019 v. 14

    The New ”New document” dialog box doesn't give any warning of the conflict of making your document smaller than your margins allow. It just changes the width and/or height back to what it was as a default if your margins are too large and does not warn the user about it.

    And if the user fails to notice that the size switches back, it will create a document that’s not the size intended. User may not even realize what is it that went wrong.

    In the Legacy New Document dialog box, when you click OK,…

  7. Type functions do not work on Text frames in CC2019

    In all previous versions, it was possible to select a TEXT FRAME (one or more) and apply any text formatting to the text in it.

    This has been removed in CC2019. With a text frame selected, the text functions in the control panel and in text related palettes -- Character, Paragraph -- are disabled. The functions in the Character and Paragraph Styles panels are NOT disabled but they don't "work".

    Expected result: how it worked in the 13 versions that preceded this one.

  8. Layers panel is always minimized upon start

    After launching InDesign the panel group with the panels "Layers/Scripts" is always minimized (AID2.png) although I saved my workspace with expanded panels (AID1.png). Tried to resave my workspace or create a new one, but the issue remains. When I reset my workspace the panel gets expanded, but only until the next launch of InDesign. It's not severe bug, but a bit annoying to reset the workspace on every launch of the program, because a workspace actually is dedicated to help avoid setting the workspace again and again, shouldnt' it?

  10. Inconsistent unit names in Czech version

    The "points" are called "body" in the Czech langauge., the short version is "b". Unfortunately Adobe CC apps are very inconsistent and you can find "b" (InDesign, Photoshop), "b." (InDesign) or even not translated "pt" (Illustrator).

    Please make it consistent. If you can't change it in all Adobe apps, at least make it "b" in InDesign. (Adobe CS 6 is correct, line thickness is represented as "b" while CC displays "b.".

  11. Mistake in Dutch Tool Hints

    In the Dutch version of Indesign, the Tool Hints say that Ctrl+drag copies the item while dragging. This should be Alt+drag.

  13. Menus and dialog boxes are off

    Using Windows 10, menus are off by 1. For example when hovering "Edit" the menu for "File" displays, Layout displays Edit, and so on.

    Also when clicking create new document, the dialog is blown up and does not work other than the "X" to close out.

  15. Putting an InDesign extension into Panel mode from Modeless fails to display the extension

    Changing the <UI><Type> field in the manifest.xml from Modeless to Panel for an extension which has already been run as a Modeless type causes InDesign to crash, or fail to display the panel. This change was possible in previous versions of the application, and works correctly in Illustrator.
    Steps:
    1) Start with the UI Showcase sample from the Adobe CEP resources GitHub. https://github.com/Adobe-CEP/Samples/tree/master/UI_Showcase
    2) Install it
    3) Start the InDesign application
    4) Open the Modeless version of the UI Panel from the Extensions menu
    Result: this shows correctly
    5) Close the panel, shut down InDesign
    6) Change the UI/Type for…

  19. InDesign CC 2017.1 12.1.0.56 build links panel redraw issue

    InDesign CC 2017.1 12.1.0.56 build links panel redraw issue. My links palette will not display correctly, even after closing and reopening. Sometimes I can't really use it at all. The divider between the links list and links info moves up and down, but it's hard to read and I can't always select an image or mulitple images. Restarting the app, restarting my computer, seems to make no difference.

  20. Pressing shift quickly after clicking and holding a frame handle deselects it

    Say I have a simple rectangular frame that I want to resize (bear with me: I know I can use the black arrow but this is just an example). I choose the white arrow tool, select the two right-hand handles, click and hold one of the selected points, hold down shift to constrain the direction, then drag to the right. So far so good in theory. However, if I press shift within a few seconds of the click+hold, the handle I click on is deselected as if I had performed a simple shift+click. The order that I perform the operations…
