  1. 15.0.1 - can't copy any aspect of a table and paste into another row/column/etc

    You can no longer copy a cell or row or column and paste into another table. Allows you to copy but when you highlight the new row/cell/column to paste into it, both the quick key and also Edit > Paste do not work.

  2. triple click paragraph takes next paragraph style instead of selected

    Triple click paragraph and paste new text takes paragraph style from next paragraph instead of the selected paragraph meaning you have to manually select the paragraph if you have a header or different paragraph style immediately after the text you wish to replace.

  3. Find/Change Search field always switches to "Story" after I choose to "Change All"

    When using the Find/Change box on a text selection, the "Search:" field gets changed from "Selection" to "Story" after I press the "Change All" button.
    This is incredibly annoying when I'm trying to change multiple things in the same selection, since I have to switch the option back between every change I make.
    I'm not sure if this is a bug, or how it's intended to work, but I hope it can be revised so that InDesign remembers my choice between changes.
    I am using the most current version of InDesign at this moment, 15.0.1

  5. Tracking uppercase bug

    Using some fonts (ie. MacOs system font PT SANS), when I change from lowercase to uppercase using the "Tt" function in the character panel, words appears with a wider tracking. When I change it with the menu "change to uppercase" it appears OK. I tried this also in Illustrator and it works well, so I think this is not about the font.

  6. Disable Southeast Asian Hypenation

    When importing ZWSP or non-ZWSP text, hyphenation can not be disabled. It would be nice if hyphenation can be disabled in the paragraph properties and the text then be removed of hyphens.

  7. CC2020 story doesn't show hyperlink symbols

    Hello,

    With CC 2019 I could switch into story mode and see the starting and ending tags for a hyperlink. This ability was beneficial because I found the text editor struggled to reveal/understand the boundaries of the hyperlink's text-it couldn't tell where the hyperlink ended. If you look in the first figure, if I type at the end of the hyperlink, even with first keying a space symbol, the hyperlink extends into any further sentences I type.

    In 2019 I would use the story editor to move the cursor outside the hyperlink termination symbol and get around the problem. With…

    Open the Hyperlinks panel and see whether the Hyperlinks are actually there. It could be that the Hyperlinks were initially created (hence the Blue color Underline beneath them) but were removed later on. That’s why the Story Editor does not show them.

    From the Hyperlinks panel flyout menu, choose ‘Convert URLs to Hyperlinks…’ and see if the Hyperlink Start and Termination Symbols are shown in the Story Editor.

  11. Paragraph shading not aligned in justified text when optical alignment is on

    If optical margin alignment (story) is ON the paragraph shading doesn't align on the right margin of justified text. hyphens seem to push the edge of the shading out. This is in build 13.1.1 but is also reported in 15.0.0.155. I cannot update to the newest version without buying a new computer—so I won't be anytime soon or maybe ever. So I hope that the bug would get fixed retroactively. My original post is here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign/paragraph-shading-text-width-not-justifying/m-p/10750103#M164426

  13. Mysterious blocks of whitespace appearing in tables

    Yesterday I reported mysterious blocks of white space appearing between paragraphs and images. They are now starting to appear between my tables. Please see the attached figure. There is no indication of them in the story. Has this got something to do with the footnotes which are behaving very strangely. Maybe I have misconfigured them somehow?

    Kind regards

  14. Highlighting text in a table does not highlight the corresponding text in the story editor

    CC2020

    When I highlight text in a table, I would expect the same text to appear highlighted in the story editor. Instead, the story editor jumps to the beginning of the document.

    Kind regards

  15. Glyph substitution not working with certain Oriya and Bengali glyphs

    The following words in cannot be reproduced in InDesign. It seems the glyph substitution is not working in about 1% of cases.

    র‍্যানিবিজুমাব — Bengali
    ମହତ୍ଵପୂର୍ଣ୍ଣ — Oriya
    ସ୍ଵେଚ୍ଛାକୃତ — Oriya
    କିମ୍ଵା — Oriya

    It looks fine above, in any text editor, or in any Microsoft app, but does NOT look right in any Adobe app I tested, such as InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop CC 2019 and 2020 of each.
    I am applying the World-Ready Composers.
    I have tried copy+pasting the text from Word and also tried the Place command in InDesign.
    I've tested in both the English North America and…

  18. Text edits forcing blank

    I keep encountering the same glitch in multiple documents where an edit to the text on one page forces a blank page (although running head and page number remain) on the following page, with the text re-flowing as expected on the page after that. For example, deleting an unwanted space is a frequent cause of this glitch. So far I've found 2 ways of making the text return to it's correct position and removing the blank:

    1) place my cursor at the very end of the page before the unwanted blank and enter a space - this brings the text…
