  1. How to clear round corner options

    Recently I have set-up a corner options to drag rectangles with a specific round corner. Now I want to drag regular rectangles, with no round corners anymore. But when drag new rectangles they all have round corners.

    Note that I have already set the corner option to 0 in the Corner options panel (Object menu). But nothing changes.
    Can somebody help me ?

  2. Image Links

    After an image is placed in a document (first selected as "Place" in Bridge") the image is then selected, using the label "Select" in Bridge. In the InDesign document the link will become brokenand needs to be relinked. If the marking of the image in Bridge is not done then the linking problem doesn't not occur.

  3. Assets renamed in web view of CC Libraries don't retain name when imported into document

    I've been creating some CC Libraries with quite a few logo assets and have found it easier to do the renaming of the files in web view because it lets me copy/paste a file name, whereas the CC Libraries panel does not.

    I've just come across the issue that even though the names appear to have synced when I view the files in the Libraries panel, when I drag/drop or right-click > Place a file into my actual document, the name disappears from the asset in the Links panel. It defaults to whatever it was when i created the asset…

  4. Object distribution disapeared from Advanced Settings

    Even object distribution has been removed from the Advanced layout and can only be seen in Essentials or Essentials Classic. I updated InDesign 2019 on 02/02/2019 and this issue suddenly appeared.

  5. updating links

    When updating links in InDesign CC 14.0 (an InDesign file linked to 4 instances) the update comes in too large for the frame. So you have to Fit Content Proportionally. This happens with PSD and AI files as well.

  8. Color Reading Completely Incorrectly

    Adobe. This is an insane problem to have not fixed.

    Colors are seriously displaying incorrectly. From one program to another the colors look different and they do not at all match the way the color read in 2018.

    The attached shows the same color in Indesign 2019 (left) and Illustrator 2019 (right)

    This is a serious issue that people have been having since the 2019 update and I cannot believe there is not an update to fix this yet.

    Every time Adobe releases an update lately I hesitate to download. The ideas behind the updates are intended to increase functionality…

  9. missing dialog box

    When i clicked on the effect (example; gradient feather) for my image, there is no dialog box popping out. I'm unable to click on other tools and I've to use the escape key to close the 'invisible' dialog box before I can use the other tools. Hence, I'm unable to apply any effect on my image.

    I'm using the Indesign CC (13.0.1) on Windows.

    It feels like it's a programme bug. I've tried to reinstall the programme but it still persists.

    Please assist.

  10. benjamin.schenk

    Content-Aware Fit-Problem with INDD CC2019, 14.0.1
    I had images to link again after receiving a layout from a customer. In some cases, I had massive changes, different sections of images, with the new option activated. I'm not shure about the reason, but if I don't activate the automatic fit, the picture sections are correct in the same layout with the same images.

    All the best
    Benjamin

  14. Inconsistent Text Wrap across two column layout

    Text wrap is applied inconsistently from column to column, i.e. text will offset by uneven amounts in adjacent columns. This happens for all types of Text Wrap except for the Jump Wrap, which does not misalign the top two lines of text!
    The only fix I could manage was to Force All Lines to the Baseline Grid, and redraw the bottom Text Wrap line unevenly for the two columns. The images attached show first the problem and second the fix.
    I believe this started happening with the introduction of CC versions, but I'm not 100% sure of that timing.

  17. After adjusting a link and renewing it, indesign fits automatically fits it to frame

    I did notice that the link options weren't turned on properly but i turned them on and the result was the same.
    Also figured it might have to to with the auto-fit option but i double checked and it's not turned on... this is super annoying. I'm honestly afraid that it'll juggle everything about when i make a minor change.....

  18. Rounded corners aren't perfectly rounded

    Why aren't rounded corners perfectly rounded? I created a 100x100px square, rounded the corners to 50px which should give me a perfect circle except it doesn't.

  19. Curves from Illustrator are straight lines in InDesign but fine when exported to PDF

    I have a graphic that I've created in Illustrator that one of the curves displays as straight lines when viewed in InDesign. Export it to PDF and it displays as it should. The grey circle that this element sits on renders correctly in both. We have had this on files in the past. Any ideas?
