  1. Specific circumstances where an RGB black cannot change to CMYK

    To replicate this fault, please do the following:
    1) Create a new document using the web workspace.
    2) In the new document, open the swatches palette and note that the default colours show the RGB color spaces.
    3) From the Edit Menu, go to transparency blend space and change it from RGB to CMYK.
    4) Go to document setup and change the intent of the document from web to print.

    What SHOULD happen:
    All colours in the swatches panel should go to CMYK;

    What ACTUALLY happens:
    All colours in the swatches panel remain RGB. This results in an RGB black…

  2. Loading saved ase swatches come in wrong order

    This is driving me bonkers. I have a group of custom swatches that I use in InDesign. I have them in a specific order. then I "save swatches" and create the ase file. When you "load swatches" and bring them back in.. they are out of order. this Is new behavior. I have been ding this since CS6 and it was never an issue. They would load in the same order they were in when you saved them. I can load them out of order and then reorder them. with no document open and it will stay that way for…

  3. Colors are displayed differently between pages

    InDesign 13.0.1 on iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017) OS 10.13.3

    Open a CMYK document. Place an sRGB file on page 1. Place the same (or copy) on page 2.

    Expected: the colors on both pages look the same.

    Actual result: With color-proof switched off, the colors on page 1 show as if color-proof turned on while on page 2 the colors show correctly. See screenshots with the same files on 2 pages. I changed nothing I just moved the picture from one page to the other.
    With color-proof turned on all pages look like page 1.

    Hello!

    Thank you for reporting the issue. We need some information around the issue which may help us in narrowing down the root cause:

    1. Does it happen with the latest InDesign version 14.0.1 ?
    2. Is it document specific or happens with all the documents?
    3. Does it happen when you switch between Adobe applications in a specific order ?
    4. Please specify your Platform, OS version and InDesign version.

    A short video depicting the issue will be very helpful.

  5. CC library color swatches doesn't work with table cells.

    Applying a color from CC library to table cell does not work.

    Reproduce:


    1. Select a cell in the table

    2. Click on the color from the CC libarry

    Expected - cell (fill/stroke switchable by pressing X) is recolored to the clicked color
    Observed - nothing happens.

    The order of Color Mode options (Pantone, TOYO, etc.) are listed in a seemingly random order after updating to InDesign CC 2018 (13.0).

  8. CC2018 Swatch panel bug

    The InDesign CC 2018 swatch panel displays different sets of swatches when set to different view options. “Small name” seems the most complete. Swatches are missing with the other settings especially after opening a document from a previous version of InDesign.

  10. Changing color space won't change swatches

    BUG NOT IDEA
    convert cmyk document to rgb. Swatches won't change. Can change custom but black stays CMYK which is different than RGB 000.

  12. CC library tab won't select?

    When clicking on the dropdown menu to select a CC library, the tabs do not open unless I hold down the ^ button. When opened, I cannot select a CC library. Have refreshed several times but it still doesn't let me change the library! This is on InDesign for Mac.

    Hi

    Please provide the following information:
    1. Is InDesign installed on the default path?
    2. Do you have any special character in the path where InDesign is installed? Like username has special characters.

    Also, please provide a copy of you preferences, you can zip them and email to anasgupt@adobe.com.

  14. Colour picker turns everything to blank with strokes, applies stroke

    Colour picker is broken. Everything is checked, but when I use it, it turns the object picked from into blank with black stroke. When applied, it adds a black stroke. This is true of text, objects, and links. Deleting local settings changed nothing.
