  2. Major delay when changing page via the page up/down or double-clicking on the page icon

    Major delay when changing page via the page up/down or double-clicking on the page icon. Usually happens when you have first opened a document. For example when you apply the keyboard command Opt-Pagedown, the icon on the bottom left of the screen immediately shows the page has changed but nothing happens. Sometimes it wont redraw the new page until you click on the screen and this only works after some time has passed (approx 6-8 seconds after). This was always instant in previous versions. My settings for view are on >Typical and I have Type Contextual Control set to >OFF.

  3. Moving pages between documents buggy in indesign 18.0

    When attempting to move pages from one .indd file to another, the application occasionaly tells me that the page format is different, which it isn't. What happens is the pages don't show up in the target document although being deleted from the source doc (delete pages box checked) … closing and reopening the application helps sometimes but not for good. Is there any way to resolve this issue?

  4. Read Only

    Indesign CC 2023 version 18.0 Files open as “Read Only”
    As soon as updated, some files have started to open “Read Only” (RO)
    My OS: Windows 10 Pro 10.0.19044 or 21H2
    PC Desktop
    I am working remotely through a VPN to a server IP address
    I have Indesign 2023 18.0 , and Indesign CS6 installed. I have not opened the CS6 in years. Also noted: My machine does not automatically uninstall the former version when it updates. I manually uninstalled Indesign 2022 after I started using the 2023. At first I thought the RO problem was a conflict, so that…

  5. Moving to the next page lag and sometimes doesn't even happen

    When I scroll to the next page the display doesn't change, it stays as the page I was originally on. Sometimes I have to close the document and reopen to access the page I want.

  7. Lagging and glitching mouse pointer

    The problem comes when I expand or move a text box: the mouse glitches, the entire page lags and becomes half black, so I can't do anything properly.

    I've just reinstalled InD and installed all the updates or drivers coming from the OS (I have a 6 month Lenovo PC with Windows 11). I'm not using InD with browsers or other programs open. Sometimes, InD seems working, but when I restart InD after turning off the PC, the lagging and glitching mouse is still here.

    I have no idea of how fix this... it's exhausting because I can't paginate anything…

  10. Footnote references not fully displaying all digits

    InDesign 18.0

    After updating the file type for the new InDesign 2023, I noticed that my footnote reference markers were not displaying correctly in the footnotes themselves: the second digit is always missing. So for example, if the footnote number is 35, only the 3 is displayed. If the number is 128, only the 1 and 8 are displayed (with a blank in the middle). This is taking place even after converting to .idml.

    My colleague with 17.4 opened the same .idml and it is displaying correctly. The first screenshot is from him showing what it is supposed to look…

  12. Problem with going back and forth between Mac created files and PC created files

    Updated to InDesign 17.4 and now can not work between Mac files and PC files created in this version. I keep getting the beach ball spinning. And images are shown with bands of color and I have to relink all images.

  14. I can't see anything except drop down menu items when I create a new document

    That's just it. I create a new document. Put in the pages, margins, units etc.. then.. nothing. Nothing comes up. I can still see the menu items and am able to save the file - but I can't see it or work in it.
    I tried pressing spacebar. nah
    I tried opening from file.. nah
    I tried different views and different previews. Nothing.
    Illustrator works just fine.
    Also, what's the difference between open normal and open original?
    I can't believe I had to waste 30 minutes on this.

  16. Alignment of text box ignores anchored objects

    When I have an anchored object (lets say an image) hanging at the bottom of the text box, aligning the text to the bottom of the text box will align the text only, and cuts off the image at the bottom.
    I imagine this also happens to images at the top of the text box, when aligning to the top.
    I think that by design, anchired objects should be calculated as part of the text box's content, and should be aligned to the bottom, as text would.
    If not, it should at least be an option to choose from.

    Thank…

  17. New Document dialogue allowing impossible column gutter

    When creating a new document in the New Document dialogue, InDesign (17.4) is allowing a impossible column gutters (Page Size: 8.5"x11", Columns: 1, Column Gutter: 12"). The Margins and Columns dialogue will prevent this from happening, the New Document dialogue will not. This causes issues when attempting to change files later using the Document Setup dialogue, even after the Column Gutter is adjusted in the Margins and Columns dialogue.

  18. Place (cmd+D) can't see tagged folders on mac

    Place command (cmd+D) can't see the tagged folders, so i can't find my documents quickly as it should be...

    All other commands (export cmd+E for exemple) allow me to navigate from my tagged folders.

    Please add the same option to place command.

  19. Boards are not displaying

    All I can see is a grey screen surrounded by my tools and panels, as though I had hidden my pages. My cursor works as normal, identifying objects and texts, and can even select and move them, but nothing is shown. Occasionally a pdf file will be visible as part of a glitch. I have tried updating my Mac, Indesign, and restarting both.

    Version: Adobe InDesign 2022
    Steps: opening any of my files
    Result: empty screen

  20. can't resize window on left or right edge

    Can not resize document window from left or right edge when document is maximized. Top, bottom and corner resizing works fine. If I resize from one of those first, all works well and left/right edges can be resized. If I then maximize the window again, left and right edge resize stops working.
    I've had this problem with CC 2021 and 2022.
