  1. 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.

  2. Font name incorrect when a character style is applied

    If you make a character style that applies "Bold" (or some other font style) and then apply it to text, the font name changes incorrectly in the Font field of the Properties panel or Control panel.

    For example, if the character style applies "Bold" and you apply it to text set to Minion Pro, then the font name changes to "Minion Pro Bold" and the style also changes to Bold.

    This is incorrect. In older version of InDesign it worked correctly: The font name should stay "Minion Pro" and the style should change to "Bold"

  4. 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... .

  6. Khmer Script Punctuation Line Breaking Is Broken

    Regression Bug (used to work in InDesign CS 5.5)

    Adobe InDesign CC 15.03 currently will break lines between Khmer script and its punctuation even though no space is present (Khmer Unicode Punctuation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Khmerscript#Spacingand_punctuation ) as pictured in the attachment.

    Desired Result: Khmer punctuation should stay with the Khmer script preceding it (just like an English period, comma, question mark, etc. does). The whole word should line break with the punctuation (currently Khmer uses zero-width spaces [U+200B] to indicate a word-boundary).

  8. 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 :-)

  9. unwanted space at line beginning (Thai language)

    when paragraph contain Latin text or number or space at end of the line, many times when shrinking or expanding text frame, indesign cut the line and put space at beginning of the next line where those Latin text or number goes.

  10. 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.

  11. Cant type lowercase letter 'b'

    Lowercase 'b' cannot type in a text frame. I can press shift+b to do a capital b, but if I do type lowercase 'b' it reverts the entire paragraph back to Basic paragraph style. I looked through all the shortcuts and couldn't find anything.

  13. InDesign should warn users when text size limit is reached

    InDesign should warn users when text size limit is reached. This is especially important when resizing existing documents. If you have a huge billboard covered in lockups/text elements that you're resizing, you have no way of knowing whether the text limit is reached unless you notice it. A warning dialogue box would be nice.

  17. numbered list doesn't count up - only counts 1, 1, 1

    InDesign 15.0.2 , Mac OS Catalina 10.15.4

    I've been provided text to put into document. Copy pasted in (stripping formatting), added Paragraph Formatting (basic paragraph), then selected text to make it a numbered list ... and it numbers every item as number 1.

    I did my own list, and it worked fine (1, 2, 3).

    I copied the text from within the document into the new correct list, it reverted all the numbers back to 1,1,1.

    I retyped the text to keep the correct numbering - that fixed the issue for me.

    I've attached a video showing what happens when…

  18. Style shortcuts keep disappearing

    InDesign 13.1.1

    I'm not sure what is going on but it's been happening for a while now. The only way I've been able to fix it has been to trash my preferences. Unfortunately even that doesn't last long, sometimes as short as a day.

    I make a lot of paragraph and character shortcuts for my projects. Each has it's own set of fonts so although I use the same shortcuts each are attached to different fonts so when I jump into a project I need to be able to see the shortcuts in the panel to remember which to use.…

  19. 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!
