  1. space before/after paragraph is suddenly not working

    when i try to add space before or after a paragraph, it shows up in the tools panel and in style sheets as being there, but it is not reflected in the actual text.

    In your example, the paragraph ‘Introduction: My Life…’ and ‘Update’ use the same Paragraph Style and the setting ‘Space Between Paragraphs Using Same Style’ is set to 0p0. That’s why the Space After setting of 1p4 is having no effect.
    To make it to work, change the ‘Space Between…’ back to its default setting of ‘Ignore’.
    Hope this helps.

  2. English:UK spelling currently not picking up US spellings 'ize', 'izing'

    InDesign is not currently detecting US spellings that use 'ize' in text that is set as 'English: UK'. (example 'organize'). We have checked to make sure there are no local overrides, such as paragraph or character styles set to 'English: USA' (there aren't), and that the undetected spelling has not been added to the custom dictionary (they haven't been). Failure to pick up 'ize' spellings is a departure from previous behaviour and is quite problematic for our workflow. Other US English spellings (such as 'behavior') are being detected.

  6. Spell Check changing to Catalan (Spanish) half-way through

    Spell check is changing from English to Catalan on a particular page of my document every time I check it. I have tried changing it back and will select English and then it will still say Catalan and try to change all of my words to Spanish.

  7. overset endnotes

    Not sure where to post this. I do a lot of journals using Indesign. I find that in Indesign 2018 and 2019 when you place a Word.doc with endnotes it brings in the endnotes okay but only the first page. The other endnotes are overset. It does not do this in Indesign 2017. Can something be done to fix this?

  8. Preferences Language changes to "Deutsch: Schweiz" instead "Deutsch: Schweiz 2006 Rechtschreibreform".

    Setting Preferences / Dictionary / Language: "Deutsch: Schweiz 2006 Rechtschreibreform" remains only if the window "Preferences" is closed with "OK". As soon as the Preferences window is closed with "Cancel", the set language changes to "Deutsch: Schweiz" instead of "Deutsch: Schweiz 2006 Rechtschreibreform".

  10. Raleway no longer a font

    Raleway has been a font I've used for a week. I used it this morning and came back after lunch and it's no longer an option.

    Can I please have this font back?

  11. table changes format for no reason

    When I create a new table and attempt to drop it into an Indesign CC 2019 layout, it completely changes format and cell sizes and is missing type in some cells.... I've attempted to place it into a new doc, and old doc it isn't staying formatted.

  12. images oversized on text import

    This is not a new issue. Just haven't reported it before.
    I work on educational books. Text comes in Word files.
    Almost every time I place a Word file with graphics, the graphics show up HUGE. Some are so big, the only way I've been able to deal with is create a huge file, open the text box up to include every bit of space.
    Today... the only size that would allow me to see the graphic was 400p x 400p!

    Not an isolated issue. I receive Word files from multiple sources, and every Word file upon import has graphics…

  13. Indesign CC 2019 Bugs(Preserve Styles and Formatting from Text and Tables)

    I usually use the inDesign to import the created word file.
    However, if I check the Preserve Styles and Formatting from Text and Tables in indesign cc 2019 and import the file, the formatting of the text will be deleted.
    This does not happen with Indesign cc 2018, but this will continue to happen in this 2019 upgrade.
    I ask you to correct this problem.

  15. bullets

    When I convert bullets to text in a text frame, the line spacing increases in the bulleted lists forcing some of the text out of the text frame.

    InDesign CC 2019
    All of the text should stay in the same position it was in before the conversion.

  18. no break is not working 100%

    InDesign CC 14.0 no break is not working all the time. Trying to keep web address together and have no break applied but the text is still splitting even though it can fit a single line of the text box. If I change width of text box the spaces get compressed and almost looks like there is no space between words.

  19. Text Frame Options, Baseline Options, First baseline, Offset setting not respected

    InDesign is changing the Text Frame Options / First Baseline / Offset to the default on existing documents.
    I open a document where nearly all my text boxes were set to "Cap Height" and they have all been turned to "Ascent" and now no longer fit in their text boxes. I have to open a Text Frame Options, click Baseline Options tab, and pull down the First Baseline, Offset to Cap height FOR EVERY PAGE, (after selecting all and changing to the direct selection tool)!

    When a text frame is set to auto resize by height, the descenders are cut off the last line of text.
