  1. Alphabetical order is wrong

    When building an Index, the alphabetical order imposed is not correct (I'm working in Spanish). Specifically, spaces should be counted before words ("A Song" should go before "Ableton", for example), at least in Spanish, whilst now it's doung the opposite, counting "A Song" like it was "Asong" and putting it after "Ableton".

    Please make the modification, or allow the user to change the order manually, or access the language "alphabetical order" if that's possible. Thanks!

  2. lowercase u key not working in text frames

    version 15.0.02

    I am not able to type a regular "u" in text frames. I can copy and paste a lowercase u, I can Shift+U to make an uppercase U, but I cannot use caps lock to make an uppercase U.

    When I do press the u key, the line reverts back to the Basic Paragraph formatting, but I'm not able to find any shortcut that refers to this.

    I hope that is understandable.

  3. Smart Quotes in Footnote

    Smart Quotes in Footnote

    I use Indesign in a Mac mini. The automatic typographical smart quotes do not work when I type in the footnotes i.e. During normal typing in a page a straight single or double quote is automatically changed to smart quotes. But in the footnote it does not seem to do it automatically.

  4. "Fit frame to content" doesn't work anymore after a lot of pages in file

    Working on a catalogue, a lot of files in a book. The "fit frame to content" works good until after a lot of pages (I think after 50 or 60 pages) suddenly it doesn't work anymore. With a textframe & also tableframe. But with an image it still works...
    Also very change, when you split the textframe in for example 2, on the second textframe it will work (fit frame to content).
    All the fit options don't work for text & tableframes.
    The right-click and choose the option don't work and also the shortcut doesn't work.

    2 other colleagues have…

  6. Open Type fractions create single digit numerators

    When applying the Open Type fractions option to a text block, as in menu ingredients (see attached), the single numbers are changed into superscript numerators, as well as some punctuation (notice the comma).

  7. Table rows distribution

    Hi,
    I ask the question.
    The table inserted in a text box does not allow me to generate lines that exceed the text box to continue in the box linked on the next page. How come?
    And how come a row of the table must be fully visible only on 1 page and not break on several pages?

    Thank you

  8. Thaana text properly composed in 14.0.3 messed after converting to 15.0

    Weird changes in the text after converting file to 15.0. (Upon opening a file with Thaana text) see attached images.

    Diacritics completely messed up AFTER recomposing (change alignment or reapply World-Ready composer) See attached images.

    Cannot use double/triple-clicking to select text composed in the new composer. (can select paragraphs already composed in the previous version, if no changes are made to that paragraph.)

    To see it in a new document: create a new document, copy and paste Thaana text (ex: Dhivehi Wikipedia), apply World-Ready composer.

  11. Too Many Text Frames

    When my primary text reflows, it adds more textboxes than I need and creates them in every column of my page. All of these additional text frames are blank and I have not added additional returns or spaces.

  13. Lao Line Breaking punctuation issues

    When I work with Lao text, punctuation marks do not stay with the line they belong to. As you can see in this attached file, the question mark is on the line AFTER the sentence. This happens even when there is enough space for it to be on the previous line. I have found this issue with other characters such as parenthesis marks as well.

  14. spell check in tables

    See attached document.
    The mis-spelled word "tiime" is addressed correctly in column 1 rows 1 and 2.
    The mis-spelled word "paarty" is addressed correctly in column 2, line 1.
    The mis-spelled word "partu" is is underlined correctly in column 2, line 2, but right-clicking on the word does not bring up spelling correction options.
    "partu" will, however, be treated correctly using Edit -- Spelling -- Check Spelling... .

  16. Optical Kerning issues after recent v15 update

    After the recent update (v15.0), I am having issues with Optical kerning, specifically with the font Noto Serif Khmer (Cambodian font). The kerning is completely off. I've opened the file in v14.0.3 and everything works fine in that version.

  20. InDesign 15.0.2 avec MacOs Catalina - Vérification orthographique

    La vérification orthographique dynamique et l'outil de vérification orthographique (commande+i) ne fonctionnent plus sur les textes en français : aucune faute d'orthographe n'est repérée. Ces outils fonctionnent pourtant très bien pour l'anglais, l'espagnol et le français canadien.

    Pouvez-vous résoudre ce problème ?

    Merci d'avance :-)
