  1. ID - CMYK separation preview vs. RGB illustrations

    Hey there,


    1. every InDesign Version (my Version Adobe InDesign CC 2018 13.1)


    2. a) open new print CMYK document
      b) place a Ai object like .eps or .ai with RGB modus (with a black element – in RGB 0/0/0 – but in CMYK 88/79/65/93)
      c) now copy the object and convert the same object into CMYK modus and place them too
      d) start the CMYK separation preview in InDesign and disable the black color
      e) at the end only the CMYK object is separated and the RGB object is totally away


    3. I wish the RGB object would separated like the rectangle –…

  3. span footnote

    "span footnotes over columns" works well (Indesign 2018) but when I print with HP Laserjet pro M252 I get only the first column of notes printed (the other blank) also if the text is ok and the PDF export and printing is ok.
    Please, help.

  4. printer

    InDesign fails to print on networked printer.

    Installed HP OfficeJet 6958 using HP "Wizard" to download drivers and install.
    Printer is installed over wireless network (connected through router).

    Same error occurred when installing Canon iP110 using downloaded installer (it installed as Canon iP110 Series WS) (But CAN print to Canon iP110 installed through "add printer")

    All other applications print fine, including PhotoShop and Acrobat.
    InDesign goes through print process (window pops up to show pages being processed), but does not print. File does not appear in printer queue.
    This occurs with all documents - graphics, non-graphics, etc.

    I have:
    -…

  5. Get error message when exporting document to PDF

    InDesign CC2018 (13.1) -- will get an error message when exporting a document to PDF, especially if it is saving over and replacing a previous PDF version. Then both versions disappear from the finder, and then I can sometimes successfully export the document. Usually takes a couple of attempts before it can export a viable PDF. This just started happening.

  6. ePub

    I create very simple ePubs in Indesign CC 2018. When I export them as ePub version 3 they print perfectly from Adobe Digital Editions on a Mac but print as blank pages or spool to postscript indefinitely from Adobe Digital Editions, on a PC, in Windows. When exported in the older version ePub 2.01 they work and print fine on both Mac and Windows. So my question is: why is ePub version 3 an option from Indesign when it isn't fully supported in Adobe Digital Editions on the Windows platform most popular with the user base? Is there a solution/workaround…

  9. layer

    A non-visible layer makes background printing from an imported illustrator file disappear on 2nd page. Was printing using the 'print' indd file.
    Also, hidden layers can also show the text as rasterized boxes if not updated.

    I lost money and a print task because of it.

  10. Files with special characters

    When linking files with special characters in their name (German umlauts, to be precise) on an Apple Macintosh system, exporting the project and transferring the whole stuff to a windows system, everything looks perfect, but
    - links in the indd file to assets with umlauts are recorded as missing
    - relinking on a per-folder-basis does not find them, either

    Workaround: re-link each file on a per-file basis.

    Guess there is something wrong in the way indesign handles the file names internally (i.e. some encoding issue).

  12. Layers with visibility or printing turned off still appears when printed.

    layers that have visibility turned off and layers with the layer option set to "do not print" don't show up on the monitor but are present when printed.

  13. Print Settings do not apply the first time

    OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
    Version 10.0.14393 Build 14393
    Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU @ 4.00GHz, 4008 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
    Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 32.0 GB

    Indesign 13.0.1

    Choose File/Print
    Select Paper Size: Defined by Driver
    Click the Setup button
    Click the Preferences button in the Print window
    Change the paper size using your print driver
    Click OK
    Click Print in the Print window

    Now the print area will be mis-aligned, and centering will not work correctly

    Workaround:
    Open the driver interface again, then close it. Paper settings will be correct.

    Tested on drivers:

  17. print dialog page size

    Since the latest version, the print dialog box no longer clearly shows when the image area exceeds the page size on the preview in the lower left. Before, the image area that would not print would be greyed. That is no longer the case.

  18. Index Sorting is not matching with Microsoft Word Sorting feature

    We received an escalation from our client that sorting on the index entries generated from InDesign is not matching with MS-Word sorting. Attached the marking received from client for your quick reference, please confirm whether we can consider this as Bug and can be fixed in the upcoming versions?
