  3. 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.

  4. 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?

  5. "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. 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.

  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. 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,…

  12. 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).

  13. 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…

  16. Digits after spaces appear out of order


    1. InDesign CC 2017.1
      I had previously used Arabic support, and this may be contributing to the problem, even after changing Preferences back to "English (North America)" the problem persists.


    2. Create text box. Type any digit, then a space, then any digit.


    3. Digits should appear left to right.


    4. The digit after the space jumps to the left of the first digit and includes a space after. Cursoring with arrow keys through the type makes the cursor position jump around, so the misplaced digit is still reading as after sequentially, but is now to the left of the previous digits (really screwy!).

  17. story editor

    In my notes, the first character is always substituted with a missing font symbol. It looks fine in the main layout window, but this odd behavior occurs both in the Notes panel, as well as the same note when displayed in the story editor.

  18. search

    I use CC 2017, but of course have seen this issue in other versions, Mac, and PC. When typing in a search term, like search term, the letters I type in show up backward, if at all, so mret chraes... which of course makes searching impossible. I can close the program, close the dialog box, and it still keeps coming up. It's so frustrating when you have 1000s of pages and need to find multiple words in between to keep opening/closing/shutting down

  20. Glyphs "alternates for selection"

    Glyphs panel: When I choose Show: Alternates for Selection, no alternates display even though there are several alternates for the selection the fonts I am using. I have tried with many fonts over the years and it still doesn't work.
