  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. Application quits

    When I highlight text and go to the font menu, the application quits. This always happens the first time I do it. From then on, it works fine. Yet, it has become very annoying. I have a Mac running on High Sierra OS 10.13.2. I'm using InDesign 13.0.1.

  3. 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.

  5. 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. paste

    I'm running High Sierra (10.13.1) and InDesign CC 2018 (November release), and MS Office 2017 (Version 15.40). I have been trying to copy text from Word into text frames in InDesign, and for the past few days, every time I hit Command-V in InDesign, the program immediately freezes and stops responding. No matter how long I wait, the only way out is to force quit.

  9. World Ready Paragraph Composer not working for Tibetan

    Adobe 2017.1 release, build 12.1.0.56

    Adobe World-Ready Paragraph Composer (AWRPC) for Tibetan fonts does not work in InDesign. While this was not an issue in CS4 since the Adobe Paragraph Composer (APC) was working well for at least two fonts (Jomolhari-ID and SambhotaUnicode), it has become an issue preventing us from using any later versions of InDesign: the APC became unusable for Jomolhari (our main font), and since the AWRPC was never completely working, we are now in a situation where neither APC or AWRPC works… (though SambhotaUnicode still works for APC only).

    Jomolhari-ID can be downloaded here: https://collab.its.virginia.edu/access/content/group/26a34146-33a6-48ce-001e-f16ce7908a6a/Tibetan%20fonts/Tibetan%20Unicode%20Fonts/Jomolhari-ID-a3d.zip

  10. 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.

  16. Error on Inset Spacing on Text Frame

    The Inset spacing on a Text Frame can be set to keep text from the edge of a box as in previous versions. However I am finding that when I request the frame be resized to fit the text exactly the bottom inset is not being recognised. Is this an recognised issue?

  17. Double clicking the correct word in InDesign spell check

    Ever since InDesign 1.0, when you used the spell check, you could double click on the correct word in the 'Suggested Corrections' area and the wrongly spelt word would be replaced, and then the spell checker would move on.

    I am not sure at what stage this function stopped working, but it was definitely after CC was launched as it still works correctly in CS6. I think this is a bug.

  18. "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.

  20. 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.
