  1. InDesign CC2018 – loss of Options from text frames when copy a frame from an older version

    All the formattings of text frames, which I have entred in for example CC2017 or earlier, will not be transfered to CC2018.

    This is scarry, and as I do not have any idea, I'll change back my work zu CC2017.

  2. 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.
    regards Frank Muenschke (IDUG Rhein/Ruhr)

  6. "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.

  7. 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,…

  9. 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?

  10. 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…

  11. 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).

  14. [InCopy] Sequence of stories is jumbled in Galley or Story View but not in Layout View

    We use InCopy for book production. When we send out an Indesign/InCopy Package to our editors, sometime the sequence of the stories seems to be random. It's all fine in Layout View. This makes reading and edition in Story or Galley View very hard.

  15. On the Radar? New character for uppercase "ß" in germany – dont forget to be able to disable auto-"ß" into SS…

    If I use shift+"ß", InDesign changes to "SS" – so far so good. But that got revised 29.7.2017. I hope thats on InD's radar.

    "Anfang 2008 wurde das große ß als neues Zeichen in den internationalen Standard Unicode für Computerzeichensätze aufgenommen, am 24. Juni 2008 trat die entsprechende Ergänzung der Norm ISO/IEC 10646 in Kraft.[1] Seit dem 29. Juni 2017 ist das ẞ Bestandteil der amtlichen deutschen Rechtschreibung.[2][3]"

  18. Incorrect kerning on justified text

    InDesign v. 12.2.0.56

    I'm working in a book file, and this problem seems to occur at random. The kerning in the first word of a line of justified type is incorrect visually, but when you check it with the cursor, it is the correct number. If you change it, it jumps and appears to be correct again, visually, but if you save, close, and reopen the file, it is incorrect again.

    It is problematic because when a PDF is exported, the incorrect kerning is what gets exported.

    The problem has occurred in two different books I have worked on with…
