  1. Table rows distribution

    Hi,
    I ask the question.
    The table inserted in a text box does not allow me to generate lines that exceed the text box to continue in the box linked on the next page. How come?
    And how come a row of the table must be fully visible only on 1 page and not break on several pages?

    Thank you

  2. Too Many Text Frames

    When my primary text reflows, it adds more textboxes than I need and creates them in every column of my page. All of these additional text frames are blank and I have not added additional returns or spaces.

  4. Lao Line Breaking punctuation issues

    When I work with Lao text, punctuation marks do not stay with the line they belong to. As you can see in this attached file, the question mark is on the line AFTER the sentence. This happens even when there is enough space for it to be on the previous line. I have found this issue with other characters such as parenthesis marks as well.

  5. spell check in tables

    See attached document.
    The mis-spelled word "tiime" is addressed correctly in column 1 rows 1 and 2.
    The mis-spelled word "paarty" is addressed correctly in column 2, line 1.
    The mis-spelled word "partu" is is underlined correctly in column 2, line 2, but right-clicking on the word does not bring up spelling correction options.
    "partu" will, however, be treated correctly using Edit -- Spelling -- Check Spelling... .

  8. InDesign 15.0.2 avec MacOs Catalina - Vérification orthographique

    La vérification orthographique dynamique et l'outil de vérification orthographique (commande+i) ne fonctionnent plus sur les textes en français : aucune faute d'orthographe n'est repérée. Ces outils fonctionnent pourtant très bien pour l'anglais, l'espagnol et le français canadien.

    Pouvez-vous résoudre ce problème ?

    Merci d'avance :-)

  9. Cant type lowercase letter 'b'

    Lowercase 'b' cannot type in a text frame. I can press shift+b to do a capital b, but if I do type lowercase 'b' it reverts the entire paragraph back to Basic paragraph style. I looked through all the shortcuts and couldn't find anything.

  11. InDesign should warn users when text size limit is reached

    InDesign should warn users when text size limit is reached. This is especially important when resizing existing documents. If you have a huge billboard covered in lockups/text elements that you're resizing, you have no way of knowing whether the text limit is reached unless you notice it. A warning dialogue box would be nice.

  14. numbered list doesn't count up - only counts 1, 1, 1

    InDesign 15.0.2 , Mac OS Catalina 10.15.4

    I've been provided text to put into document. Copy pasted in (stripping formatting), added Paragraph Formatting (basic paragraph), then selected text to make it a numbered list ... and it numbers every item as number 1.

    I did my own list, and it worked fine (1, 2, 3).

    I copied the text from within the document into the new correct list, it reverted all the numbers back to 1,1,1.

    I retyped the text to keep the correct numbering - that fixed the issue for me.

    I've attached a video showing what happens when…

  15. Style shortcuts keep disappearing

    InDesign 13.1.1

    I'm not sure what is going on but it's been happening for a while now. The only way I've been able to fix it has been to trash my preferences. Unfortunately even that doesn't last long, sometimes as short as a day.

    I make a lot of paragraph and character shortcuts for my projects. Each has it's own set of fonts so although I use the same shortcuts each are attached to different fonts so when I jump into a project I need to be able to see the shortcuts in the panel to remember which to use.…

  16. formatting

    There NEEDS to be a way to keep formatting when copy/pasting. I need to keep formatting when copying text from .docx and pasting into indesign. This is a MUST! Us copy editors need this ability. Using textedit/notepad and copying from there doesn't work (that is the solution recommended to me by technical support). Please Please PLEASE fix this!

  18. Crash when smart reflowing a document with many anchored text boxes

    Indesign is freezing/crashing when smart text reflow is used to reflow the document. Other documents are fine. This document is unique in that it contains many anchored text boxes and decimal tabs.

    I am using InDesign 15.0.2

    All I must do to crash InDesign is 1) open the document, 2) place my cursor between two of the inline anchored text boxes, 3) add a paragraph return (creating overset text which should be reflowed automatically).

    See attached screenshot of one-page document.
