  1. update package

    Instead of making a new package every time it would be really handy to be able to update an existing package.
    proposed Use Case/action:
    a new menu item: Update Package… > Show package in Finder/Windows Explorer > Only the items that are not in the existing package will be added (the items in the package that are not used will be kept in the updated package)
    Thank you

  2. ID print postscript to network drive failed to create file.

    When using InDesign CC 2021 to print postscript file to a network drive. There is always no file created as the filesize is 0 byte. What's wrong with InDesign CC ? I don't have this problem with InDesign CS6.

  3. Printing a document with variable fonts garbles them

    (I sent test fonts to Josh Hadley at Adobe yesterday, i.e. Aktiv Grotesk VF)

    1. Select variable font from the menu (e.g. Aktiv Grotesk VF)
    2. Select world-ready composer
    3. Select a couple different instances from the drop-down or select an instance via the slider (e.g. Black, Bold, Regular, Light) and set some text in each
    4. Print the page from InDesign on a PostScript printer

    See the attached image. What should happen is that the repeating blocks of text should be set in the different instances you selected in step 3. They are replaced by a random font instead, only the first instance…

  4. Clipped items lose their clip when printed

    InDesign files with clipped images saved as a PDF look fine in Acrobat. Clip is lost when sending file to the rip. This causes items to overlap

  8. ID very slow on creating packages

    ID 15.1.2 on MBP 15" 2019 macOS Catalina 10.15.6
    Since updating to ID 15.1.2 creating packages (File > Package) takes sooooo much time – especially collecting image files into the Links-folder. Feels like using a last century internet connection to copy them instead of a ssd. Really bad: There's no progress shown on the progress bar. The only way to figure out that ID still works ist to check the Links-folder again and again where you can see the files dropping in one after another …

  9. Packaging a server-located file fails

    Since updating to 15.1.2 I am unable to package a piece of work which is saved on our server - "Indesign cannot access..."
    Upon testing, package works fine if the piece of work is saved locally on my mac, but fails for any server based work, which unfortunately is where all of my work is saved. This has happened before on a previous update quite a while ago, but you fixed the issue, so would appreciate it if it could be fixed again. Thanks.

  10. Where has Package gone?

    Shift Option Command P was not working, so I went to File: Package, and it's gone. I have restarted InDesign, restarted my computer, as well as tossed my preferences. I am using InDesign 15.1.1 on OS 10.14.6. Any ideas or help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

  11. 15.1 and 15.1.1 Locking up and freezing when opening packaged files

    Same bug that we had with CS6.

    Basically if a Document Fonts folder exists, then opening the INDD file takes forever and/or freezes up constantly while working. But if we rename the subfolder or delete it altogether, then ID performs normally.

  13. package folder name

    INDD 15.1, Mac OS 10.15.5
    With the 15.1 update, when packaging a file, the folder name is no longer highlighted. I, like most people, delete the word "Folder" that INDD adds to the packaged folder name. In previous versions, the folder name was highlighted in the package window so that hitting the right arrow would move the cursor to the end allowing one to delete "Folder." Now one has to click into the name field to change it. This release has added an extra step. Please revert to how it used to work. Or better yet, stop adding "Folder" to…

  14. package file name period

    When packaging an InDesign file, if the filename contains a period, all characters after the period do not become written in the new package folder.

    For example, if I package a file that is named "Project 06.16.20", the new package folder will be named "Project 06."

    It should be named "Project 06.16.20" but for some reason, the name after the initial period gets ignored. User must type in the rest manually.

  17. Print thumbnails to postscript — file unusable

    When I print thumbnails [or a booklet] to a postscript file, InDesign 15.0.2 creates the file, but it cannot be read in either Preview or Acrobat.

    You need to allow for a useable PS/PDF export for sharing thumbnails or booklets with colleagues who do not use InDesign.

  18. Lagging/text doubling when changing paragraph styles

    When changing paragraph styles the remaining text moves, but kind of doesn't refresh without me clicking away from the frame with the cursor or zooming in. What happens is I get double text which is confusing. Crashing is happening too at this point.

  20. AdobeFnt.lst automatically reappears after deleting

    InDesign version: 15.0.2

    Suddenly (after the latest March 2020 InDesign update?) the AdobeFont.lst file created with InDesign packages automatically shows up with folder structure after deleting a package. This is really aggravating for file management. It's as if my team can't fully delete InDesign packages. This is happening with multiple InDesign files on multiple machines.
