  1. Table with Alternating Row Stroke

    When using a table with alternating row strokes, the stroke between the first and second rows is always 1pt, not matter what the cell or table style is set to.

    In this example, every other row of the body should be stroked at .5pt. Everything works except the first row, which is 1pt.

  2. Fix it!

    Footnote symbols at the beginning and at the end of the footnote I can't delete them nor the space that associated with the damn blasted symbol.

    It's just a mess. Endnotes footnotes it's a horror show to deal with them. I wasn't before but with this update---truly a horror show.

    Hi,
    Thanks for mentioning this. Do you mean the blue braces at the end and start of endnote text?
    Those are just markers that depict the start and end of endnote text. This will not be printed or exported. helpx.adobe.com/in/indesign/using/endnotes…

    To adjust the spaces, please explore and set the Type→Document Endnote options.

    Please let us know if this helps you out.

  3. caps

    Everytime I type a capital "I" all letters following are all CAPS. It only does it when I type that letter. Then after I select the text to change it to lower case the only way to get the cursor back in my control is to do a DESELECT ALL COMMAND. Otherwise the sentence stays selected and stuck. Another thing it does if not all caps is it changes to first letter in the entire sentence will be Capitalized like a title character style. My text is a set character style that I have set to be regular format, not…

  4. text outside of text frame

    Text suddenly appears outside of frame. This happened on two different pages. In one instance, the number (which is the result of a numbered list) did not appear at all, but it had been previously there, and in other instances, the number appeared outside of the text frame. There were no overrides on the style. This suddenly happened. If i placed my cursor and started typing where the number should have been (and was with all other numbered bullets), then the disappearing number reappeared in the one case, and, in the others, the number moved back into the text frame.…

  5. Note strip content in cross references panel varies


    1. Indesign CC 2018

    2. Open a document with cross refs.

    3. When hovering with the mouse over a cross ref in the cross ref panel a note strip appears, showing some information about the page it points to and also the page of the source.

    4. On some cross refs it does not. There it shows the cross ref text. This seems to be due to the cross ref format being slightly different, but all pointing to level 3 headlines.

    5. See attached images adobeerror5.1.jpg (correct note strip) and adobeerror5.2.jpg (false note strip)

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  14. 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

  15. 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.
