  2. Exporting to PNG file on network drive doesn't work

    There appears to be a bug when exporting PNG files to network mapped drives in Mac OS X 10.13.4 (Darwin) Adobe InDesign 2018 (latest version).

    This is in a domain environment using domain credentials. You export the file as PNG and it doesn't appear in the folder as expected. If I export to desktop it works fine, if I copy it from desktop to the share it copies fine. Just cannot export directly.

    Hello,
    Can you confirm the InDesign version you are using? Is it 2018.1 or 2018?
    I assume the path to which you are trying to export the PNG is /Volumes/Shares/011 Changed Information/002 Changed Information/00617 Changed Information/Changed/ ?

    Is this drive mounted via SMB?
    Is it a NAS server?

  3. export image

    InDesign fails to export image files to a server location. No slashes in the file name. Export to Desktop works fine, export the same file to a server folder and nothing happens after dialogue box disappears.

    This needs some sort of error or alert...or they could make it work correctly.

  9. beim sRGB jpg export ist Adobe RGB Profil eingebettet

    Beim Export eines sRGB-JPG's aus InDesign 2019 ist in dem Foto dann Adobe RGB-Farbraum eingebettet.
    Die Farben sind eigentlich korrekt (entsprechen dem sRGB-Farbraum), aber es ist eben fälschlicherweise das Adobe RGB-Etikett eingebettet, so dass die Farben dann falsch interpretiert werden.

  14. Exported JPG and PNG are not recognised when trying to Insert Image in Word 2011

    Indesign 12.1.0.56 on macOS Sierra 10.12.5. Exporting as jpg or png files are not recognised when I go to insert them into Word 2011 on Mac.
    However, files are recognised when:
    - exported from Indesign 12.1.0.56 x64 on PC and inserted into Word 2011 on Mac
    - exported from Mac and inserted into Word 2010 on PC
    - I had no problems when using indesign 2015 on Mac and inserting into Word 2011 on Mac.
