  1. Auto-size text boxes with rounded corners expands randomly.

    Version 2018, 13.0

    Set a text box to auto size height and width (with no line breaks)
    Make the corners rounded
    As you can see in the attached jpgs of before and after, sometimes the box expands in width and sometimes in height, but randomly, not wrapping around the text correctly.

    Hi,
    Can you please add a small video (on WeTransfer/Youtube/Dropbox) and post a link here so that it can be looked into?
    We have tried to reproduce it but unable to do it.
    Also, please try once after clearing your cache and preferences. forums.adobe.com/thread/526990

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Fill with Placeholder Text doesn’t automatically change the font and characters for that language when holding ⌘ and choosing that from menu

    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?

  6. Find Glyph uses character style set in the Text tab

    It's not possible to set a character style in the Glyph tab of the Find/Change window. But if you set a character style in the Text tab, the Glyph tab uses that style to limit the search scope.

    Steps to reproduce:


    1. Start a new document, add a character style. (Doesn't matter what formatting you add to the character style.)

    2. Place a text frame and enter 'xx'.

    3. Apply the character style you added in step 1 to the first x.

    4. Set the character style in the Find Format field of the Text tab of the Find/Change window.

    5. Go to the Glyph…

  7. 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.

  8. 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. 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!).

  12. 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
