  1. Verknüpfungen werden nach jeder Aktivität neu aufgebaut // InDesign 17.0 x64 // running on Win 10 Pro

    Aktuell laden sich die verknüpften Bilder nach jedem Doing in InDesign (Also egal was ich mache, Textverschieben, von einem anderen Programm zurück zu InDesign wechsle oder was auch immer, 1 Sache mache ich und schon laden die ganzen Verknüpfungen neu. In den alten Versionen lief das ohne Probleme. Ich konnte ohne Störungen arbeiten. Dies scheint ein BUG zu sein, denn das macht das Arbeiten mit dem neuen InDesign unmöglich. Ich kann nicht jede Sekunde warten, bis sich der Screen neu aufgebaut hat und ich weiterarbeiten kann. Die Bilder komplett auszugrauen ist auch keine Option, da es für unsere Gestaltung wichtig…

  2. Image mislocation (Myanmar, Khmer, Lao, Thai)

    Image mislocation (Myanmar, Khmer, Lao, Thai)

    In Myanmar (Burmese) Unicode, there is an error where the image overlaps the text.
    In the example, the red box should not overlap the text.
    For reference, Khmer, Lao, and Thai have the same problem.
    Please check.

    Thank you.

  3. Tiff alpha channel not working

    A Tiff exported with Alpha channel from Solid Works do not support the transparency. It works ok when opened with Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator. Also working fine in Affinity Photo, Pixelmator Pro, Mac OS Preview and Mac OS Finder.

  4. Image date merge

    Since InDesign 16.4 the image data merge won't work. The images are not displayed on the screen and not in 'links'.
    After merging there are also no pictures.

  5. Premier Pro style file linking

    I recently had the joy of relinking a project I was working on in Premier Pro. Right click, "Link Media...", the gui opens, I click "locate", hit "search" and hey presto! The experience is blissful.

    Please do this everywhere! Especially in InPhosTrator.

  6. [INDD 2020 and 2021] Placed SVG InDesign ignores code dominant-baseline="hanging"

    It seems that the SVG import filter ignores code:
    dominant-baseline="hanging"
    when rendering text in the placed SVG graphic.

  9. bug: start/end line not clickable in Indesign

    Indesign 16.3.2, Apple Silicon M1 chip, MacBook Pro macOS Big Sur 11.5

    I've discovered a bug. When I try to click on the option to add a start or end to a line, the option disappears directly. So it's not possible to click on one of the options. Right now I can't add a arrow to the end of my line. I hope it will be fixed really soon!

  11. Edge smoothing in Indesign 16.3.2 creates lines where there should be none!

    Something that is extremely annoying and obstructive when designing. This was once different and better!

    No matter if e.g. black or dark frames with white "narrow - narrow" outline or areas that cover others, hairlines appear everywhere where there shouldn't be any.

    I don't know with which update this has crept in. But it nevt infinitely and it was no improvement.

    The only way to get rid of these lines is to disable edge smoothing completely. But then you have a pixelated view with the charm of the 80s. So this is not an alternative either!

  13. Weird Bug with Resize to Frame

    Resize frame to content messes up and I'm not sure if it's something to do with a setting I have set since this doesn't always happen.

    Basically, I'll have a frame around some content with text in it.

    When I hit "resize frame to content" ctrl-alt-c, it resizes the frame to the full document width, which looks like the example.

    I obviously expect the frame to resize to the content, not to be super wide like the entire document.

  14. Drag-Duplicating using Alt/Opt key does not work if key is pressed after dragging

    I am working on Mac OS Big Sur v 11.3.1 using Indesign CS 2020 16.2.1.
    I cannot duplicate images using the command option shift key.
    I have also noticed that holding the shift key down to proportionately size images is also not working. Could you advise if this issue can be solved? I have read the thread posted in 2020 and it said it was under review. I tried the workaround suggested changing live Screen drawing to "never" but this has not changed anything. Please help! Thanks.

  15. Linked PDF images not exporting to PDF correctly

    InDesign (16.2.1), Windows 10

    Logos saved as PDFs and placed in an InDesign file appear with a gray vertical line on the right side of the image frame when the file is converted to PDF. There is no stroke or fill on the image frame; further, I checked a PDF with the same PDF logo in it that I created a month ago and it did not have the line. The line appears when the PDF is printed.

    We found that reverting back to v16.1 resolved the issue. Also, relinking a JPG or TIF of the logo worked in 16.2.1,…

  17. No frame edges for lines or ankerpoint visible anymore?

    Problem: Line objects no longer have "frame edges" in the normal view! Lines without line thickness, white lines (which do not lie over a background), individual nodes are thus invisible in the layout!

    To find slipped lines again or to find several rest fragments like single nodes again becomes a patience and search game!

    The (line-) or frame edges appear only if you either select everything or if you move the mouse over the line or the single node randomly (mouseover). Simple is different!

    This was not always so! No idea when this was changed! But it was a very…

  19. Compound path stroke incorrect

    InDesign version 16.1 macOS. Haven't tested Windows, could be same.
    Steps to reproduce:
    In a new document, create a box.
    Create a second, smaller box, inside the first box.
    Select both and create a compound path (Object menu, Paths, Create Compound Path).
    Select the object.
    Give it a large stroke, for example, 10 points.
    Set align stroke to outside shape.
    Result: smaller, inner box (the "hole") has the stoke going same direction as larger box, when it should be reversed, going "outward" (toward the hole) instead of into the shape.

  20. Library panel not registering licensed images

    Hi, for a while now the Library panel does not register when I license an image from Adobe Stock. I search for an image and place a watermarked thumbnail into the document (InDesign, Illustrator or Photoshop). When the draft is approved I click on the license image icon on the image in the Library (or on the thumbnail image in the document) and the license process happens but the library does to update to show the licensed image. I have to go to Adobe stock in a web browser, find the specific library and download the image manually. The cloud…
