  1. Emptiing a text frame when making corrections

    Very often, when making corrections of the text, a text frame (not the one I am working on) is emptied and the text moves one page forward creating overflowed text. In most cases it happens on the next page, but sometimes it can be some other text frame -- forward or backward. I can't tell what is the reason of this behavior because it is different every time.

  2. Un nouveaux grossissement d'affichage sur les objects sélectionnés

    Les équipes d'adobe doivent créer un nouveau focus ou zoom natif. Sur le logiciel, on devrais zoomer sur l'objet de travail en cour ou sélectionné. Bien sur les deux option de programmation manuel et automatiquement doivent apparaître. Les deux options disponibles laisserais un choix de création meilleur.

  3. InDesign 16.1.20 error

    I'm getting this error on every ID project that was saved in this version of ID (16.1.20) after the latest update: <InDesign is having difficulty in reading some unsaved changes in "filename." It may damage the file. Would you like us to try and repair the file? Some unsaved changes may be lost.> After repairing each file and opening them again, if I make any small change even as simple as adding a spaceband and save, the error comes up again.

  4. InDesign 2021 doesnt load 2020 inDesign files correctly - all the fonts and images are missing and uneditable

    Every time I try to open my 2020 files in 2021, the images and font are missing from the document. the fonts are installed but for some reason text and images just are missing from the converted file.
    The first attached file is a screenshot of what the document looks like in inDesign 2021. The second attachment is what the file is supposed to look like, and does in 2020

  5. InDesign 2021 (16.0.2) file corrupted dialog

    InDesign 2021 states on save that the file is corrupted but its correctly on the network share (Acronis Files Connect). InDesign 2020 didn't had any problems with this.
    On a side note: Why is it not possible to download the Update 16.1 as release a few days ago?

  7. Bugs avec Windows 10 Pro

    De nombreux bugs d'utilisation des logiciels Adobe avec Windows 10 Pro (In Design / Illustrator et Photoshop).
    Dans InDesign : les fonds perdus sont ajoutés au PDF lorsqu'ils ne sont pas cochés dans les options d'export du PDF, ce n'est pas normal.
    Création de Nouveau document : les options de nouveau document ne répondent pas (dans l'interface de démarrage du logiciel et dans le logiciel par le menu), même constat dans Illustrator.
    La fenêtre "Format" n'apparaît pas toujours lorsque l'on veut l'afficher par Fichier > Format de documents... Je suis obligée de cliquer sur "Echap", car le logiciel ne répond…

  9. Guides/Grids not showing

    InDesign16.02 & 16.01

    For some reason today, when I opened an InDesign file from a packaged InDesign folder in the latest version of InDesign, I could not view the page margins, document grid, baseline grid or ruler guides. I tried toggling them with the shortcuts and by directly selecting them from the InDesign menu. I uninstalled the latest version and tried the previous to make sure it wasn't a version issue. I had the same result. No grids or guides would show no matter what I tried. I checked the threshold and made sure I was within it which I…

  12. Shortcuts 'Open' and 'New' not working when ID starts for the first time after quit

    Key commands for 'Open' and 'New' are not working when InDesign starts for the first time after quit or restart.

    However as a workaround I've discovered I can get things working again if I go to InDesign > Preferences > General and just click OK . For some reason that brings the functionality back.

    Please provide a patch soon :)

    I'm on ID 2021 version 16.0

  13. Y coordinates incorrect when pasting objects on pages with different heights

    I have several pages with different heights. If I paste an object using "paste in place" from page to page, they do not paste in the correct Y location from the original. However, the X location is correct.

  15. Footnote rule styling lost when split

    I have set up formatting for the Rule On line above my footnotes, but when the notes auto-split across pages, the line that is automatically created for the following page has a totally different, default, non-editable format. How do I make auto-appearing lines consistent with the line format I have set in Footnote Options?

  16. Alt-PgDn inserts glyph after moving to next spread

    InDesign 16.0 x64

    Normally (and on the MAC), the user can press Alt/Opt+PgDn to center the next spread on the screen.

    This is now broken on Windows. At least on the 2 PC's I use, both of which are up to date on Windows and Creative Cloud.

    What happens now is that when the Alt key is released, a glyph is inserted into the text. And this causes the display to jump back so the insertion point is visible on screen.

    Of course, if I'm not currently editing inside a text frame, the glyph doesn't appear, because there's no place for it…

  17. InDesign: Nach Update auf 2021 ist komplettes Dokument zerschossen

    Hallo,
    nach dem wir von 2020 (15.1.2) auf 2021 (16.x.x) upgedatet hatten, hat es unsere kompletten Magazinseiten zerschossen. Headlines // Fließtexte etc wurden komplett durcheinander gerührt und nicht mehr an der richtigen Stelle stehend angezeigt.

    Unsere kompletten Stilvorlagen (Absatz- und Zeichenformate) wurden total zerschossen.

    InDesign erschwert uns von Update zu Update unsere tägliche professionelle Arbeit.

    Wir sind nun erstmal wieder auf die alte Version gegangen, das hat zum Glück funktioniert – aber der Frust in der täglichen Arbeit bleibt!

    Wir können nicht ständig unseren kompletten Workflow umstellen! Das geht einfach nicht.

  18. iCloud drive

    inDesign thinks links are gone when files are being stored in iCloud Drive (even though the cloud version is still in the same folder on my computer). Please allow inDesign to download linked files in iCloud Drive automatically so I don't have to download and relink manually.

  19. hyperlinks

    You create hyperlinks for your pages - and nothing appears in the Hyperlinks panel, so you cannot see what you've already hyperlinked!!!

  20. InDesign 2021 is not displaying my documents correctly

    I just opened my CV created in InDesign 2020 and after the update to 2021 font styles have changed and text is partially not displayed at all. This leads to the document's layout being off and not usable.
