  1. formatting

    There NEEDS to be a way to keep formatting when copy/pasting. I need to keep formatting when copying text from .docx and pasting into indesign. This is a MUST! Us copy editors need this ability. Using textedit/notepad and copying from there doesn't work (that is the solution recommended to me by technical support). Please Please PLEASE fix this!

  3. Khmer script justification is broken

    With the CC version, having World-Ready Composer enabled, Khmer script justification is still broken. I tried to use the text with and without ZWSP, and it's all the same. There was a thread talking about it https://forums.adobe.com/message/5030301 but seems no any new update.

    The justification is also broken in Photoshop CC.

  4. Cursor should return to starting location after find/change


    1. InDesign 15.0.1 x64 (Windows 10)

    2. I have a document with about 20 pages full of text. As I am reading through the text, I notice an error that I need to fix (such as a misspelled name, for example). I activate the the find/change dialog box and run a search and replace to change all of the misspelled names to the correct spelling. When I am finished, I click done in the Find/Change window.

    3. I may be misremembering, but it seems to me that in past versions of InDesign, when I clicked "Done" my cursor would jump back to the…

  6. Crash when smart reflowing a document with many anchored text boxes

    Indesign is freezing/crashing when smart text reflow is used to reflow the document. Other documents are fine. This document is unique in that it contains many anchored text boxes and decimal tabs.

    I am using InDesign 15.0.2

    All I must do to crash InDesign is 1) open the document, 2) place my cursor between two of the inline anchored text boxes, 3) add a paragraph return (creating overset text which should be reflowed automatically).

    See attached screenshot of one-page document.

  9. [v15.0.1 up to v15.0.3.406] Link in Hyperlink Panel green, but incorrect

    Another bug that has unfortunately crept in and is just noticeable: in the hyperlink panel, links are shown as okay (green!!), but they contain control characters (e.g. conditional line break <- I don't know if this is the correct English name, see in Text as control character like this: | ).
    The control character is (of course) exported and the link does not work in Acrobat.

    The link does not work in InDesign either, but if the light shows green, the function is useless.

  10. ID 15.0.2 can't find kashida

    I'm using ID CC20 (v15.0.2) with Arabic support. When I search for a manually placed kashida in a string of text, I get a "Cannot find match" error. I've made sure all specific attributes are turned off in the search window (see attached). This happens whether I type a kashida in the search field or copy-paste it from text in the layout.

  15. Mysterious blocks of whitespace appearing in tables

    Yesterday I reported mysterious blocks of white space appearing between paragraphs and images. They are now starting to appear between my tables. Please see the attached figure. There is no indication of them in the story. Has this got something to do with the footnotes which are behaving very strangely. Maybe I have misconfigured them somehow?

    Kind regards

  16. Typekit (or Adobe Fonts) or Fonts menu collapses while browsing through the list of fonts.

    I am absolutely loving the new InDesign features. But, whilst testing the new Typekit/Adobe Fonts browsing window in InDesign I came across this bug / crash. Instead of allowing me to freely roam the vast selection of fantastic fonts, the window just decides to close and defaults to one of the already synced fonts.

    InDesign version: 14.0, included a screencap.

  17. In the Table of Contents panel, make the 'Include Book Documents' option persistent and part of the style

    I am writing a book, with 18 chapters, each as a separate InDesign document, but all collected in a single Book.indb.

    I just now returned to writing the book after a several months break. Wanting to update my structure, I did Layout > Table of Contents and clicked 'OK'. My Table of Contents disappeared!

    After investigating, I realized that the 'Include Book Documents' option in that panel had become unchecked.

    I checked that option, ran Table of Contents again, and found all my table of contents entries generated successfully. Yay!

    HOWEVER, when I went to regenerate the Table of Contents,…

  18. Honor Word Break Boundaries for Overflowing Text / Line Breaking for Non-ZWSP Text

    Lao (SEA Asian) text that doesn't already have ZWSPs included, doesn't automatically line-break, even though double-select word selection shows that the ICU/HarfBuzz engine is finding them. It would be nice to be able to set for paragraphs the ability to use non-ZWSP text and have ID automatically line-break based on the ICU/HarfBuzz word boundaries.

    Not all people will want this, should it should be made easy to enabled/disable, because some people use ZWSPs to manually control layout features, and don't prefer automatic word-boundary analysis.

  19. 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

  20. Illogical interface to control the strokes of a table's cells

    Hi there,

    I find the interface to adjust the strokes of a table's cell utterly confusing and frustrating to use. For instance, I want to adjust the top horizontal border between two rows. If I click on the top bar in your interface (see diagram), select a weight and colour, InDesign changes the stroke of the cell's vertical bars?!

    If I select the bottom bar in the diagram, it still changes the vertical bars.

    If I attempt to guess the reasoning of how the interface works, I then chose to select the vertical bars in the interface, InDesign still changes…
