  2. 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... .

  3. Cross reference anchors are not sorted alphabetically

    When adding a cross reference into the text pointing to a certain text anchor, the list of anchors is not sorted alphabetically. The anchors starting with accented letters are wrongly placed at the end of the list. The alphabet order should respect the language setting of UI.

  4. Adobe Fonts not activating

    When I need to activate a font from Adobe Fonts directly from Find Font context menu inside InDesign, it keeps loading indefinitely but never actually activates.

    The only solution is going to Adobe Fonts web page and activate it there.

    Screenshot attached.

  5. Underline and Strikethrough Don't Work in Character Style When Used in Numbered List

    Underline/strikethrough applied to a character style works, but NOT when that character style is applied to numbers in a numbered list via a Paragraph Style's Bullets and Numbering pane.

  6. For text frames with inset spacing and shaped corners, the text frame can auto-size to be much wider than the actual text

    InDesign: 15.0.1 x64
    Creative Cloud: 5.1.0.407

    This behavior varies depending on the combination of:
    - typeface
    - font size
    - corner size
    - inset spacing
    - actual text contents in text frame


    1. Put a few words in a text frame, and keep the text frame selected. I can trigger this easily with Minion Pro, Roboto, and Inconsolata.



    2. In Object -> Text Frame Options:


      • In the General section, set Inset Spacing to some nonzero value.

      • In the Auto-Size section, set Auto-Sizing to Height and Width, and enable No Line Breaks.



    3. Select the text frame with the Selection Tool. Set the corners…

  7. Text frame options: Individual inset spacing when rounded corners are enabled

    Currently the text frame options do not allow different inset spacing on each side if a rounded corner is applied to the text frame.

    We are trying to create a template that has a text box with a gradient background and a rounded corner that bleeds off the page. We need to set the inset to push the inset spacing on one side further than the rest to fit within the page margins, but with the rounded corner this is not possible.

  10. [ CC-2019 and 2020 ] The Convert-Endnotes-To-Footnotes Disaster SCOPE: SELECTION with CONTEXT MENU

    Hi together,
    I'm using the context menu available for text selection to convert endnotes to footnotes by selecting text in the endnote text frame.

    The result is not as expected. However it is better than using the dialog in menu Type for converting endnotes to footnotes with scope selection.

    What is the issue?
    One endnote was converted but not removed.
    Two footnote text are missing the first character.
    One footnote text has a special character that should not be there.
    Style overrides were not transferred.
    Footnote references get style overrides of the character they are attached to.

    All the important…

  11. Bugs with Whitespaces in Justification’s Composer when work with Thai language and other issues

    As my report on bug with text wrapping in 2020 version (https://indesign.uservoice.com/forums/601180-adobe-indesign-bugs/suggestions/38998636-bug-with-world-ready-composer-when-use-space-like). Many of issues were fixed, but some still remain.
    .
    Before going to the issue in the title of the post, I want to specify some issue that doesn’t fix form my last report. If you see on the attachment img 02, you will see the issue about text encoding (it just only my suspicion) that happen when you just copy and paste text (specifically in Thai) form 2020 version to 2019 or to another text editor. After I had pasted text into TextEdit (you can…

  12. Selecting all and then deselecting some text in one go

    I have been using InDesign since forever. Since the very first versions. But something has changed in the update to version 15.0.3.

    When I select text, I often want to select an entire paragraph, except for the hidden character "paragraph return". I do that by holding Shift+Command+Arrow Down. That selects the entire paragraph including the hidden character. Then I would normally just let go of the command button and still hold Shift and then push the Arrow left button. That way I had selected the entire paragraph without the hidden character.
    But in the latest update, 15.0.3 I now suddenly…

  14. Footnotes disappears

    Some footnotes disappeared without reason then appeared back when I changed something in the linked paragraph. InDesign didn't display any kind of warning about this problem.

    Hi,
    Part of this issue was fixed with the latest release of InDesign 15.0.1

    For all new files created with ID 15.0.1 the issue will not come. For older files opened in ID 15.0.1, you will have to resize, move or do some text editing operation to make the footnote appear

    In case you are still facing the issue in new files created post ID 15.0.0 , please share a sample file

    Thanks

  15. Bug with world ready composer when use space like thin en or em space in Thai language. And bug in text wrapping in 2020 version.

    After updated to 2020 version that added support to Asian languages (include Thai), it look like Indesign force user (in my case Thai) to set language in Advanced Character Formats to Thai. After set the language Indesign also require me to use World-Ready Composer to set all tone marks in place.
    .
    Before the latest version, I always avoid to use World-Ready Composer because it combines a word to single object, not just locks tone mark and float vowel to character in the right position. By which it impossible to navigate with text tool to the position of text that…

  16. Black swatch in cell diagonal line is not overprint

    In Table and Cells, stroke color default swatch is [Black]. In this case, overprinting is set even if the overprint check box is off.
    However, the diagonal line does not set the overprint even if [Black] swatch is applied.
    This is not set unless the check box is checked, so it must be the same as stroke because it behaves differently from stroke.
