  2. When deleting a page in page tab numbers remain as before

    When deleting a page in page tab, the numbers are wrong, as if the deleted pages are still there. It doesn't update.
    As you can see in the file loaded, it starts with page 3, not 1.

  3. Won't allow me to create a new document. Acts like it will, but doesn't.

    Make it woirk. Have to open a document, save as, change all the details and then can make a new document.

    Sucks.

  5. Can't access free templates

    If you create software, and have templates that are labeled free. There should be no reason why I need a adobe stock account to access FREE TEMPLATES!!

    If it requires said license, it should say, REQUIRES ADOBE STOCK LICENCE

    If you are going to offer a product and put a paywall subscription behind it, that you can't access. What is the point of paying for a product that you can't access FREE content or basic options to try out.

    Who ever designed that, needs to re-word it.

    As you can tell, not a happy client.

    Thanks
    Robert Dion

  6. paragraph format

    Can't create a new paragraph format. To be more presice, I can't change the font settings itself (fontstyle, size etc.)

    It should look like the others underlined in green.

    I'm using InDesign 16.0.1

  7. Choose Anchor point when changing Document size

    When changing the Document Size, Id always crops/adds equal parts on all sides. It would be nice to choose whether to crop to center or from a specific corner or side (see the Photoshop Legacy Crop interface)

  8. Layout drop down does not work

    When I click on the layout menu dropdown and select any of the options like move pages, delete, duplicate, etc. Nothing happens. I have the most recent version of InDesign. I also get a default option when I click on the File drop down options and requires me to restart so I can save, export to pdf etc.. This is incredibly frustrating.

  11. Opening idml from CC2021 crashes CC2020 but not CC2019 and earlier

    When I save file as an idml from CC2021 I cannot open it in CC2020 as it crashes. CC2019 and earlier can open idml files from CC2021. It seems to be an issue only with CC2020. I've managed to open a 1 page blank document with CC2020 from CC2021, but anything that I've worked properly on crashes when the idml is opened in CC2020. I've attached an example.

  13. Some spreads gone grey and only export as blank pages

    I have an account report getting some problems. Some spreads have suddenly gone grey - as you see in screenshot. In the Pages panel they appear blank and when I export them - also blank. When I try to fix the page or add a new one the program unexpectedly quits.
    I think this is an error from the file.

  14. Saving... way to define

    With the version 16.0, InDesign doesn't find the way to the file when I save it. I have to define it every time, it is not very convenient.
    Thank you!

  15. saving

    When I create a new document and go to save, I do not get a save window. I have to close out the app and go back in for it to work. Sometimes I have to close out and go back in multiple times.

  16. Some spreads gone grey and only export as blank pages in 15.1.1

    I have a 48-page magazine about to go to print and three spreads have suddenly gone grey - as you see in screenshot. In the Pages panel they appear blank and when I export them - also blank. Getting worried...

    Separately, the "Fit Page/Spread in Window" instead zooms in to 2,642% magnification.

  17. Objects on the page jump if a left-hand page becomes a right-hand page and vice versa

    Hi developers,
    this is a longstanding bug:

    With facing pages documents on EVERY document page there is a zone where jumping of objects will happen.

    I call this the jump zone. All objects on a page that will jump are clearly inside the page's area. The bug has nothing to do with rounding errors where object edges are at the edge of a page.

    The objects should not move if pages are added or removed, if numbering of pages is changing. Nevertheless they do. Always. Unless, the zone has a width of zero.

    Below all the details.

    What is a…

  19. modification date

    This is so strange.. When I want to open a file in the window there is no date anymore. So how to see which file is the latest one you worked on? I resetted preferences, but still it only shows: name-size-kind-date added... And i can not find a way to get a view options panel for this. any help?
