    Make immediate tabbing between Width and Height without going thru Units.

  3. InDesign non-functional

    On launch, the usual "credits / ideas / new features / splash" page has a problem: See screenshot attached. It is blocking all controls and prevents using InDesign at all. It has no collapse button and isn't even rendering properly.

  4. Relinking / opening new documents window broken

    When I try to relink or open a new document (anything that involves locating a file from my MAC) I can no longer select shortcuts from my sidebar. The folder icons are placeholder documents rather than folder icons. Clicking on them has no effect.

  9. Benutzeroberfläche

    Wenn ich in InDesign CC 15.1.2 die Benutzeroberfläche auf »****« stelle, kann ich keinen Cursor in den Texteingaben der Bedienfeld-Menüs sehen … er scheint leider auch »weiß« zu sein. Wo liegt der Fehler?

  10. The Stroke Panel Table Cell Stroke picker box is adjusting other Workspace panels in its shared column

    My saved workspace has the Stroke Panel at the top of a column of panels and when I create a table and click into it to change its stroke, the Table Cell Stroke picker in the Stroke Panel expands. When I click outside of the table and the Table Cell Stroke picker goes away, the panels that expanded collapse, but other panels below stay in place. If this is done repeatedly, the other panels' locations/sizes would be altered permanently needing the Workspace to be reset.

    The video below shows what happens when the above described action is performed multiple times.…

  11. Arrow Functions

    Why did you reverse the arrow colors? These were so primary to the use of the program its just a mind bend. I'm not finding the new functions to be very useful. The second arrow doesn't seem to have any valid use. Its harder to move the boxes with the first arrow because it jumps to the underlaying image and moves it instead. Trying to build a polygon and move the points to add highlight to irregular shapes and cannot move the points without it shifting other points that were set in place where they were needed. Not helpful.

  12. Wrong translation of “Publish online” UI in Czech language

    Please correct wrong translation of "Single" and "Spread". In the latest version of InDesign the translation means "One FIle" and "Extension", crazy, isn't it? Please follow the long established terminology developed in old days when you did ask humans to translate UI items and you did consult it with local experts: the names are correct in InDesign PDF export dialog, so why don't you reuse the correct terminology?
    The correct form is "Stránky" and "Dvojstránky".

    !!! PLEASE stop using robots or Google Translate for new features in InDesign !!!

  13. None of my windows float in when I open Indesign version 15.1.1

    The app is running, but none of my windows float in when I open my file.
    I can't access any of my tools, pages, or layers... This is the only thing I'm able to see which is only my document. But I can't work without the tools! How can I fix this issue? I already tried restarting my computer, uninstalling and re-installing Indesign 15.1.1 and nothing has worked.

  15. [bug] UI won’t show up although app seems to have launched successfully

    macOS Catalina 10.15.5
    MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019)

    Nothing appears when I create a new document or open one. The app seems to be working though because it keeps adding a numeric increment every time I create a new file. InDesign is updated to latest build. Please advise.

  16. BUG - 15.1.1 - Mac/PC - text threads don't display

    On both Mac and PC, the 15.1.1 version doesn't display text frame threads.

    When I create a new doc, threaded text frames DO show the threads. But when I open pre-existing documents, threads don't show at all. I've confirmed this behavior with a few other people, on both OS platforms. I'm running on Win10/64, [Version 10.0.18363.836]. The Mac users were on very recent OS's.

  17. Jumping to wrong tabs

    Hi, when I try to click on the File menu, it keeps jumping to Window instead. That goes for any menu item I try to open. I'm using the 2018 version of InDesign on Windows.

    Thanks

  18. Click, click-drag combinations no longer work as they did previously.

    Upon upgrading to 15.1.1, on Mac OS 10.14.16 Mojave

    -Triple-clicking won't select a whole line, and, yes, I selected "triple-click to select whole line" in preferences.

    Double-clicking does won't switch from the object tool to the text tool.

    Double-click and drag won't extend the selection.

    I didn't find anything in the Mac OS, Wacom, or InDesign prefs that referenced click or click-drag options. Adjusting double-click speed doesn't change this bug.

    If these features were disabled to take advantage of the swipe features of Apple mouse and tablet gestures, please add a preference option to use a standard mouse.

    This bug…

  19. InDesign Comment Area for Edits and Notes

    Is there a note feature in InDesign to add notes for edits? I have always added a text box from a copied email but wonder if their is a sidebar utility so I don't loose the notes as I page scroll. Normally I have 2 screens but I think this feature would be cool as I continue my career in InDesign.
