  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.

    I have used various Myriad Variable Concept weights/widths and they do not print. They do, however, with Illustrator. Version 15.0.1

  4. [ 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…

  6. Column Rules fail if a Table is the first item in a Text Frame

    (Hmm ... tried to attach an INDD file and I'm told they're not allowed. Really? OK ... will try a ZIP file with the INDD inside. Nope ... ZIP won't work either. Uploading a PNG screenshot)

    Column Rules fail if a Table is the first item in a Text Frame

    Please see the attached sample file.

    On page 1 and 2 you will find a variety of 2-column frames with column rule applied.

    In each case, the column rule will fail BECAUSE the first item in the frame is a Table. But, on page 2 I've added one extra example…

  8. "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…

  9. Updated to 2020, now fonts are not working

    Okay, so apparently I have run into an issue, that many have experienced before me. After an update of InDesign, fonts are not working, although installed. And browsing through the forum, no solutions seems available even though this is months old problems. Yes, there are some work-arounds, which I tried out with on luck.

  10. 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

  11. Deselecting "Use Typographer's Quotes" for Excel import doesn't work... unless the paragraph style is set to Language: [No Language]

    TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
    1. Import an Excel document that includes straight quotation marks.
    2. In the Import Settings dialogue, uncheck "Use Typographers Quotes."
    RESULT:
    The quotation marks will be converted from straight to curly.

    WORKAROUND:
    1. Define a paragraph style with "Language" set to "[No Language]."
    2. Create a cell style using that paragraph style.
    3. Create a table style using that cell style.
    4. When importing the Excel content, select that table style (as well as unchecking "Use Typographer's Quotes").
    RESULT:
    The straight quotation marks will not be converted.

    NOTES:
    • Changing the paragraph Language to [No Language]…

  12. Selection of several words

    It would be great if we could select several words at the same time to apply a style.
    For example, in the sentence "It would be great if we could select several words at the same time to apply a style", I would like to select the words "great" and "words" and "style" at the same time in order to put them in bold all at once.
    Thanks a lot !

  13. Word Lookup / Search with Google for text

    How about adding a 'word lookup' OR 'search with Google' for words while working with text copy in Indesign and InCopy? I know there is a default dictionary integrated, but I'm talking about the way you can search any sentence or word in the most browsers just by right-clicking.

    Basically, just a feature to add a search engine for text lookups directly from Indesign and InCopy - it will help a lot working with text copies and editing text stories directly from the program.

    Merci beaucoup !

  14. Outline color of tables changed

    When I open a file which has been created in InDesign 2019 (by another person) with my version 15.0.1, some outline colors of the tables are displayed incorrectly. (not all of them) In my case they should all be 60% black, but some of them are 100% black now.

  15. 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.

  16. Balance Columns Not Working for Tables

    Balance Columns does not work for Tables.

    Steps to duplicate:
    1. Create a large Text Frame with two columns.
    2. Enable Balance Columns on that Text Frame.
    3. Create a Table in the Text Frame with a number of rows, say 10 rows.
    4. Add a paragraph break, or return.
    5. Create a line of Text under that Table that spans columns.
    The Table ignores the Balance Columns Setting.

  17. Eyedropper bug — attribute pick-up is glitched by hidden layers above

    If there are objects overlapping and above the source for the eyedropper tool, — even if those objects are on a hidden layer — the tool picks up a color of no fill and no stroke.

    If the hidden layer is dropped below the target layer, the problem goes away.

    These observations are based on original input by Bill Silbert in this User Forum discussion:
    https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign/indesign-cc-2020-eyedropper-problem-turning-text-to-no-color/m-p/10765424#M165918

  18. Since 2020 update, InDesign won't correctly import and replace typekit fonts.

    When opening a file that uses a typekit font, Indesign attempts to "install" it (fonts that SHOULD already be there anyway, or were installed previously). The wheel spins indefinitely, and it never installs. My only workaround I've found is to attempt to find a download elsewhere on the web. Then it works fine. It seems to only be an issue with Indesign, and only since the 2020 update. Something similar happens with some non-adobe fonts, too. Says it's not installed, but it is.

  19. 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. Unable to add fonts to Favorites if "in-menu font previews" is turned off.

    Adobe InDesign 2020 15.0, on macOS Catalina 10.15

    After having updated to the latest version of Adobe InDesign 2020 I'm unable to add fonts to the Favorite Fonts filter. The fonts I've added to the filter from previous versions of InDesign are still there, but I'm not able to add any new fonts I have installed since.

    The star icon that previously let you add fonts to the filter is now completely gone. I can't remove previously added fonts from the filter either.
