  1. TIff

    Can't place TIF or PNG files into InDesign. The internet tells me that I can, however I've been trying for hours and it only works when I convert to JPG.

  2. Cannot place EPS image in empty box

    InDesign 14.0.1.209
    Mac OSX 10.14.3

    Placing an EPS file generated from "Barcode" (by AppsForLife) does not work properly if the target box is empty. If box already contains a graphic, the file will place properly via "Place" or drag+drop.

    On a new image box or box where the existing image has been deleted, the following occurs (via Place or drag+drop):

    Image will seem to appear in the target box. Once mouse button is released, the imported image is no longer in the box and the pointer changes to a "placement selector" prompting to place the image in a new box.

  6. 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 ?

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. Multi-state objects and animated elements not working on State 1

    InDesign CC 2019 14.0:

    I have a 4 state multi-state object. Each state has a full-screen image with a text title and description which animates in (Fly-in from top) for each state upon load. Left/Right buttons control the interactivity.

    However, when I add an animation to the text title/description in State-1 it causes the full-screen image to not load and the test/description text doesn't appear either. (Tested in Indesign in the EPUB Interactivity Preview panel and on iPad/iBooks)

    When testing it in the EPUB Interactivity Preview panel and I go to State-2 using the buttons and then return to State-1…

  10. 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.

  11. CC Libraries search slow to input typed letters

    With the CC Libraries panel open, clicking inside the search area at the top and typing, often the second letter that is typed is not included.

    For example, RIFT would end up being RFT. When highlighting the word and typing again, it is fine.

    It seems intermittent and isn't a stuck keyboard key as it works perfectly typing in a text frame.

    It could possibly be limited to one or two certain characters such as "i" and "f" as those ones that consistently fail to be entered.

  12. High Quality Display Not working

    I have used INDD for about 15 years. Very experienced. but just upgraded it to CC2019 along with Mac OS Mojave 10.14.1. I can no longer see images in high quality (since the upgrades). I have triple checked everything. (image res, all INDD settings etc..) Is this a known issue?

  13. 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. updating links

    When updating links (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.

  17. import resetted

    Import a photoshop file into Indesign, adjust size and detail selection of the picture. Then Opt-double-click the picture in Indesign to work on the imported file. The file opens in Photoshop and you can work on it, like adding filters, layers etc. Save youor modifications in Photoshop and go back to Indesign. You will notice that all adjustments in Indesign are resetted and you have to do it all again: select detail, adjust size etc.
    This really sucks!!!

  19. 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.....

  20. I am running InDesign CC 2019 v. 14.0, and in one occasion photoshop document that is placed in Indesign does not look the same once placed.

    I am running InDesign CC 2019 v. 14.0, and on one occasion, my photoshop document that is placed in Indesign does not look accurate. The only workaround I found was to place the file, use import options, and turn one of my photoshop layers off. It was very strange. I tried exporting jpegs and tiffs from my PS doc, and though the preview image looked accurate when placed in InDesign, it did not look correct (background gradient color was changed to a flat color). When I exported a pdf, the same result occurred.
