  2. Indesign Saving Files

    In Indesign, the Interactive PDF save option needs to specify the file size before saving, how many MB will be. Just like when we save a JPEG file in Photoshop, it will tell you how many MB of the file will be before saving.

    I would appreciate it if you take this suggestion into consideration.

    Thanks.

  5. Bug: Ligatures cause inconsistent font weight in exported PDFs

    PDFs exported from InDesign and viewed in Chrome display inconsistent font weights, and the issue appears to be linked in some way to ligatures.

    In my own testing, I have found the following, but I am not entirely confident that this is a complete picture of the problem:


    • Ligatures turned on everywhere = lighter text

    • Ligatures turned off everywhere = bolder text

    • Ligatures turned on in some places = inconsistent font weight line by line. Not certain if there is a regular pattern to these inconsistencies.

    Issue seems to present only when exported PDFs are viewed in Chrome, but I…

  6. Change of indesign behaviour regarding form elements - problems of non printing elements

    Indesign Version 15.12x64 Windows

    I opened an old document (paper registration/order form) and suddenly became aware that something has happened.

    A lot of input fields was visible - in the old version i did never see tham in this view.

    But this was not the problem.

    The problem was, that if I converted the cocument to PDF with the STANDARD PRINT preset , all boxes were gone.

    After some investigation i found out, that those have been converted to intaractive elements also without my knowledge.

    Only after i changed the option "INTERACTIVE ELEMENTS" the very last option on the PDF…

  8. Using non-breaking spaces and export interactive PDF creates small boxes in PDF

    Using non-breaking spaces and exporting PDF using interactive PDF setting creates small boxes in PDF. Using Adobe InDesign 15.1.2 and macOS Catalina. I have tried multiple fonts in case it was a font issue. This just started happening last week when I did an update.

  9. Even though the book contains three chapters, bookmarks only appear for two chapters

    InDesign 2020 - I have create a multi-chapter book. When I use the function "Esporta libro su PDF…" the file PDF obtained has the summary correct (all the chapters are dysplayed) but bookmarks only appear for two chapthers.
    I've tried changing the order of the chapters to see if it's a file problem, but the result doesn't change. The last chapter does not appear in bookmarks list.

    I remain at disposal for any clarification

  10. Pixelation of transparent .png's mostly using logos when exporting to PDF

    Used a high quality logo, even took the time to replace it a second time. Same result.

  11. profil

    Bonjour, Le souci est que sur BR mes fichiers Indd et les exports pour impression en PDF ne contiennent aucune mention de "Profil Colorimétrique", alors que mes logiciels Adobe ont bien la même gestion de couleur à savoir : PREPRESSE EUROPE > COATED FOGRA39
    J'ai beau Attribuer ou Convertir en profil cela ne fonctionne pas !
    Sinon, pouvez-vous me donner la manipulation à faire ?
    Merci
    Cela est très ennuyeux pour les imprimeurs.

  12. Endnotes with links incorrect when exporting to an accessible PDF file.

    When exporting an InDesign file to an accessible PDF file (tagged PDF), if any endnotes contain hyperlinks, the tagging structure is messed up. Starting with the first hyperlink (not the links for the endnote references), all of the endnotes from that point on are in the link tag for that first hyperlink. I encountered a very similar bug a few years ago when exporting to the EPUB format with documents that contained endnotes that finally got resolved a year or so after the bug was reported.

  14. Indd-generated QR code disappears in Print-PDF

    When exporting a print pdf, a qr code that has been generated within inDesign does not appear in the pdf. There is not even an empty box. It seems the pdf export is somehow inaccurate when it comes to qr codes that have been generated in Indd.
    Indd 15.1.2. x64

  15. PDF issue with WorkSans variable font

    I'm getting a strange issue with the WorkSans static variable font when exporting a PDF. The font is from Google Fonts -- https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Work+Sans. The weight in the attached example is WorkSans Black. A strange overlap issue is happening in the crossbar of the A. The issue only seems to be occurring in that letterform. The only way I can seem to resolve this is by converting the font to outlines in InDesign, which is not ideal.

  16. Paragraph-Borders are not wrapped in appropriate container - InDesign 15.1.2 (macos)

    To reproduce add a border to a paragraph style (not the frame, the paragraph) apply this to an existing paragraph and export to PDF. In Acrobat use preflight to check for pdf/ua compliance. You will get an error message telling there is a content that is neither an artifact nor a tagged content.

    To fix this in Acrobat, you have to select the "path" elements in navigation pane and apply an apropriate parent container. Reason for this behavior is, that InDesign places the path that renders the border directly in the structure without a container element. And this does not…

  18. InDesign is not correctly role mapping all paragraph styles to tags, when creating an accessible tagged interactive PDF

    I am using InDesign 15.1.1 to create several accessible, tagged PDFs.
     
    I have tagged every paragraph style correctly under the export tags for PDF (Edit all export tags > show: PDF), and I have left any list items and table of contents items with the default ‘Automatic’ tag.
     
    I am exporting as an interactive PDF with ‘Create tagged PDF’ checked. 
     
    Then when viewing the PDF in Acrobat Pro DC, in the Tags pane I have selected ‘Apply role mapping to tags’. This should ensure that in the tags pane in Acrobat, all my original paragraph style names…

  19. Accessibility-Tag Z order issue while using custom bullets

    When we use custom bullets for bullet list, the reading order tag is not properly exported to PDF. We are getting an unwanted space between the custom bullet and the text and that too reading order got reversed. We are not getting such issue while using InDesign default bullet list. Please refer the attached screenshot with reading order enabled.

  20. Variable font: Italic character wrongly displayed when exported to PDF format from InDesign.

    I'm reporting this bug on behalf of the type design studio Dalton Maag. To reproduce: use the provided test font, write the lowercase letter "p" in Indesign, and choose the "Hair Italic" instance, or equivalently, set:
    - the font's weight axis to the minimum,
    - the width to its default value
    - the italic axis to its maximum.

    Glyphs are shown without fault within InDesign itself. However, when exported to PDF format and opened on Acrobat Reader, there is an issue with how the letter “p” is displayed (see aktiv_vf_p_bug.png).

    We are suspecting the issue is caused by a point…
