  1. Endnotes not accessible in InCopy

    I finally figured out where the endnotes disappeared to when I imported a document from Word, only to find out that they will not link to the story text boxes and are inaccessible from InCopy. This adds all sorts of problems to our workflow.

  2. couldn't paste

    I could not paste a letter character AND a tab into a table cell. I could paste letter-tab-letter, but not tab-letter. It would paste just the letter without the tab. Weird I know, and I can't duplicate it right now, but just in case others have seen it.

  4. OpenType All Small Caps disappear when switching dictionary to German

    I have a text that uses the OpenType feature “All Small Caps” in a lot of places. It is currently set to use the English USA dictionary. I am working on translating this text into German, and so I want to use the German dictionary for it. When I try this, all instances of All Small Caps turn to regular lower-case letters. I tried a couple of different dictionaries, some (e.g. other English and Dutch) will retain the SC and others (e.g. None) will make them disappear.

  5. InDesign version 13.0.1 x64. Dynamic spelling does not show misspelled words with red underline as you type, prefs are set to that.

    InDesign version 13.0.1 x64. Dynamic spelling does not show misspelled words with red underline as you type, prefs are set to that. But if you do right mouse button, or spell check, it does know the word is misspelled, offering correction suggestions. We really need to see it "dynamically" as one types; this feature is not working.

  9. The killing of hard returns in ToC

    This is a new feature with version 13 ... but (I think only on WIN machines) that can not be stored with the rest of the settings. After saving and creating a table of contents, the check mark is no longer set.

  13. Balance Ragged Lines and Nested Line Styles


    1. All Versions of Adobe InDesign up to CC 2018. macOS.

    2. A paragraph is formated with "Balance Ragged Lines" and single lines are formated with "Nested Line Styles"

    3. The lines shoud be formated as they are actual wrapped.

    4. The words are formated, as they would built lines, if balance ragged lines were not enabled.

    5. In the screenshot the second line is colored by a nested line style. The first word in the second line remains black, because it is wrapped around by balance ragged lines.

  14. "Go to endnote reference" (or "text") feature not found in 2018

    "Go to endnote reference," or "text," not present in right click popup window on my version of InDesign 2018, nor is it present under Type Menu. But then this could only be in my application.

  15. Activated font could't use in some InDesign-Documents (and in this special documents never again)

    Until an update of Indesign CC2017 up the actually CC2018 version I have sometimes problems with using activated fonts in individual documents.

    In these special documents it happens that suddendly Indesign say the font you used before its missing even if it is activated.

    It's in the list of fonts, you can choose it, but in this Document you could never use it in anytime again.

    The only solution is, to build up a new document and copy all pages or elements in it. This is a realy worse thing to do, especially if you have Dokuments with 150 pages,…

  17. Import XLS with coupled cells

    InDesign cannot import a XLS with "coupled" cells (Sorry - I don`t know what it is named in the english software).

    If e.g. "B2" and "B3" are coupled in the XLS, the content will appear in InDesign only in "B2", "B3" is emty and the cells are not coupled. The same is up in cells over lines.

    The Bug is not new. Is it really hard to repair?

  18. Text engine buffer breaks if text contains diacritics

    I regularily edit pages with fairly long text in Icelandic, a language which uses diacritics quite a bit. If the text gets to be more than a few hundred words, the text engine buffer starts acting up, especially when using accents. It will enter two or more accents in addition to the intended accented letter, sometimes mangling the order of letters too, always being laggy too. This is NOT a new problem, but I feel it has become much more pronounced in CC 2018.

    In the attached screenshot the intended text "fréttastjóra að gefa því" has appeared as "´fr´´éttastj´ór´a að…

  19. changing subset fonts in the Control Bar

    On occasion, when changing the subset font (or font variant) via the upper Control Bar, the change doesn't register on the document. The character palette also doesn't register the change (they should match).
