I have a map done in Illustrator, saved as an .ai file. This has been placed into InDesign and slightly cropped so that one of the text labels is cut off. When I export this to PDF, the complete line of text shows on the page, extending out past the edge of the frame. The line and shape objects are cropped to the frame though.
The attached PDF shows screenshots illustrating this.
I have had the same thing happen in the same InDesign file (well, the same map template) with a placed InDesign document instead of a placed Illustrator file.2 votes
Color settings and profile preferences were not kept during the last update. This could have been a very expensive problem. My workspaces were kept, so it seems like a bug.2 votes
I am using Adobe InDesign CC 2018 13.0 for macOS (10.13.1). It seems that the auto-fit is default turned off right now. I changed the setting in Objet-Fitting-Framing Fitting Options and checked the box of Auto-fit with no documents open.
However, I am still unable to set auto fit into default.
Thank you.2 votes
CC 2018 is importing (placing) some of my eps graphic files as text files. See attached PDF file of sudoku image.2 votes
InDesign does not recognize that an placed AI file has changed -- if the change is minor, for instance shifting graphics on the artboard. If Illustrator artwork is moved relative to the artboard, then just saved (command S), the file does not show as modified in the Links panel. In order for InDesign to see it as modified, the Illustrator file must be Saved As and overwritten. This is an ongoing problem for at least the last three iterations of InDesign, but specs are:
InDesign CC 2017 13.0
Illustrator CC 2017 22.0.0

So many problems with Links Panel after recent update:
1) Right click on PSD asset, EDIT ORIGINAL now doesn't work - "No editor associated with this link"
2) Right click on AI asset > Edit with Photoshop, opens in Illustrator

I've placed the same layered photoshop files into ID three times to show how an animation works. Going to 'Object Layer Options' and clicking 'Keep Visibility Layer Overrides' is meant to keep your selected layers visible, even if the Photoshop is resaved. This no longer works. Once the link updates, all three update to look the same and forget which layers i've told it to show. Why?2 votes
1. Version: CS4 and above
2. Steps: Just rotate/skew a picture within its box and use "FitFrameToContent" and watch the *content* gets cropped!
3. Expected Result: The picture frame gets fit…
4. Actual result: The content gets cropped.2 votes
Thanks for reporting the issue.
We have been able to reproduce it and will consider it for fixing.
Max OS 10.13.6
Indesign will on occasion replace all placed images in document with grey boxes.
Issue occurs seemingly randomly when moving elements in the document.
Issue affects all placed images in document, including .ai and .png images.
Issue is not document-specific, although seems to affect documents containing transparency more frequently.
Additional new images placed while issue is ongoing results in a grey box.
Changing Display Performance settings does not resolve issue.
Restarting InDesign resolves the issue.1 vote
Linked images within linked Indesign files appear pixelated, even if the links are updated. It's temporarily fixed by relinking the file – but it goes back to appearing pixelated when the file is reopened. This has only happened recently and has never been a problem in the past.1 vote
With cs6 no problem. The same bitmaps files (TIFF) with CC, the display is very bad, even in high performance. Impossible to find a solution with technical assistance. Graphic designers with whom i works have the same problem. Apparently on the forums it would be a known bug. I work with windows 10.
Two screenshot to see the difference between CS6 and CC1 vote
Under Scripts, my image catalog script does not complete the place command to create an image catalog for me. When bug is worked out, I would also like an option to number each image, instead of only placing file names.
To recreate: Create new document, letter size. Open scripts, and run Imagecatalog.applescript. Set rows and columns( doesn't matter, also doesn't matter if labels is checked or unchecked) . Page will populate rectangle boxes, but not graphic frames nor insert images.

When adding my own text to a file in InDesign/CC Libraries (See attached image) - it deletes part of the text so I have to rewrite it again.
'Saks' becomes 'ks'
There's a glitch and the text disappears.
It's a collaboration work account, but can't it get more stable?

When choosing File -> Place the dialog says "Open" on the selected item. In stead of "Place"
In training on indesign i allways have to explain this. We can only Open indesign files, but we can Place other media. The dialog window should use the term Place.1 vote
If you dublicate a layer with a object group on it, and then ungroup (the also dublicated) objects on the new layer, they are all moved to their original layer.
This objects should stay on the new layer!1 vote
BUG? CC 2019. When placing a PDF file we used to get generic PREVIEW icon which was preferred. Now every "place" only shows the actual contents of the PDF document. This is in the FILE -> PLACE -> "Choose PDF" dialog window1 vote
Take the following word file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/sta1b2iqhtx72if/basic%20word%20fail.docx?dl=0
it contains two equations that I've highlighted in the original.png file so their locations can be identified (I've only done this to the screen capture, they're not highlighted in the word file).
Now, place this word file into InDesign and the result as shown in result.png is that the equations are missing.

Just installed ID 2019 5/10/19. Importing hi-res photos, come in pixelated. PDFs are fine. Trashed ID prefs. No help. I noticed that it often says "Reading (photo)" at the bottom bar info, but my doc did not show that. However, if I DELETE one of the photos, then UNDO it (command-z), it forces ID to redraw it, along with the other photos. They appear sharp and hi-res. However, saving it does no good, as it appears pixelated whenever I open the doc (I tried several docs). So, the work-around is to do the delete-undo while I'm working on the file, so it's clear. I'm enclosing a PDF to show what I see on screen.
