  2. Text formatting is lost when copy/pasting a text box to another document.

    When Copying a text box from one document to another, the formatting is lost and is highlighted red (indicating missing font?). The font changes to from Arial to Helvetica as substitution.
    Both documents are updated to the current file format.
    The box copies and pastes as a basic text frame.

    I'm able to reformat everything to match the other document, but I don't know why it's losing the formatting.
    I'm using Windows 10 Pro version 1909.

  3. shortcuts: shift + end / shift + pos1 does not work any more

    It was handy to activate all Text with shift + end or shift + pos1. This does not work any more and should be fixed.

  4. Alphabetical order is wrong

    When building an Index, the alphabetical order imposed is not correct (I'm working in Spanish). Specifically, spaces should be counted before words ("A Song" should go before "Ableton", for example), at least in Spanish, whilst now it's doung the opposite, counting "A Song" like it was "Asong" and putting it after "Ableton".

    Please make the modification, or allow the user to change the order manually, or access the language "alphabetical order" if that's possible. Thanks!

  5. Smart Quotes in Footnote

    Smart Quotes in Footnote

    I use Indesign in a Mac mini. The automatic typographical smart quotes do not work when I type in the footnotes i.e. During normal typing in a page a straight single or double quote is automatically changed to smart quotes. But in the footnote it does not seem to do it automatically.

  6. "Balance Ragged Lines" does nothing

    When activating it on the Paragraph panel or in the Paragraph styles, there's no change in the paragraph at all.

    I'm using MacOS 10.15.4 (19E287), and the latest version of InDesign 15.0.2.

  7. Font list on wrong side of scree

    Hi all. I have no idea what happened. I have Indesign 15.0.2 x64.
    I have been working in Indesign daily and this morning, all of the sudden things seem all jacked.

    Mainly, which I cannot figure out, the font list for years has been on the left hand side of the screen when working with the text tool. Today it is on the right side of the tool bar. I reset to my preferred workspace, nada. I selected Essentials Classic and same.

    What happened and how do I put it back? Essentials Classic should not have a different layout. InDesign…

  8. Open Type fractions create single digit numerators

    When applying the Open Type fractions option to a text block, as in menu ingredients (see attached), the single numbers are changed into superscript numerators, as well as some punctuation (notice the comma).

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  12. 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... .

  14. Endnotes with Numbers following Hebrew Script in an English Document Not Working

    I have an issue with Endnotes and how they are working in English following Hebrew inputs into the text. It seems to be isolated to endnotes with or including any kind of numbers. I have attached a WORD document, showing screenshots. This I have to say is quite a needed fix, or a solution. I was informed to submit this as a bug.

  15. 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 :-)

  16. 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.

  17. Unable to drag nodes text frame

    InDesign 15.0.2, running Catalina 10.15.4

    I can easily add/remove nodes to a text frame but I have tremendous difficulty trying to move a node with the direct selection cursor. When I click and drag the node, the entire frame moves, indicating the node never got selected. A node seems to only manage to get selected about 10% of the time. I am not doing anything special for that to happen. It randomly works and 90% of the time it doesn't. Very frustrating.

  19. 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.

  20. 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…
