  1. 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?

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. Placed type from Word comes in as 'none'

    When I place text from a Word doc into my magazine template, the type comes in with the color 'none'. Even when I use a paragraph style that has black specified as the type color, it still stays as none. So I have to select all of the copy and manually change it to black. This doesn't seem to happen in other documents -- just my magazine template. I don't know how to fix it. Using latest version of ID.

  13. Unable to create text anchor from text with an apostrophe in it.

    Anytime I create a text anchor out of a piece of copy with an apostrophe in it (ex. What's New) and use it as the destination for a button or hyperlink, the interactive PDF does not redirect to the anchor. My workaround has been to select everything but the word with the apostrophe in it, but I would love to see this fixed in the next version.

  14. Make editing text faster

    When I want to, for example, remove all "m2" from "### m2" in table rows (20+ rows of table), I have to slow down my clicking, because InDesign doesn't register a selection change (double click to select), if I do it too fast. Woud be good if it was instantaneous like Word.
    My process: 1. Double click to select m2. 2. Press backspace or delete. 3. Double click to select next m2. And so on.

    I know I could find-replace, but sometimes I don't want to set up a find and replace. And it just a little annoyance, which not…

  15. Converting text cell to graphic cell

    If you convert a graphic cell to a text cell the vertical justification gets locked, cell appears to be anchored and is unable to be converted back to a graphic cell.

    1) Create table
    2) Select cell > context menu > convert cell to graphic cell
    3) Select cell/object > convert to text cell
    4) Unable to convert back to graphic cell or adjust vertical justification within cell (options greyed out) and anchor symbol on top right of frame

  16. Tagged Text file import randomly places URLs throughout text

    I can't import an InDesign Tagged Text file without getting randomly inserted footnote URLs placed throughout the text and all footnote links being broken.

    Since I'm working on a book and have hundreds of footnotes, I thought AITT would be my best option for backing up and recovering chapter text.

    InDesign CC 2018 on macOS Mojave public Beta,
    when holding down ⌘ key and choose Type-> fill w place holder text, there’s a pop up menu that you can choose which language you want to fill in, and it did fill with placeholder text, However it didn’t fill in text with that language and choosing a font that suits that language, or even ragged left if it’s Arabian language.

    Thank you for reporting the issue.
    I need more inputs from you to get to the bottom of the issue.

    Please confirm if the issue happens only with Mojave. Was it working fine before upgrading to Mojave?

    Are CMD/opt keys working fine in other workflows?

    Regards,

  19. Text Replacement

    When I have text selected, I click on the box with the Font name and type out the font that I want. Then click on the font weight preference, but it just reverts back to the original font, it does not actually apply the font that I am click on in the dropdown. The only way I can choose a new font is by using my arrow keys and then hitting enter for the selection. I have a stylus so I thought maybe it's just my pen not working, but this doesn't seem to be the case because it doesn't…

  20. Bottom of Text Wrap is Incorrect

    My body text doesn't wrap tightly to the bottom text wrap of my object like it does at the top (see gap between text wrap and start of body text).
