  3. Having problems naming alternate layouts within the pages panel since update to Big Sur

    Problems started after updating to MacOS Big Sur
    Indesign 2021 - (2020 same problem)

    I can't rename the alternate layouts in the PAGES panel when the panel is docked. If the panel is floating free, there is no problem.
    I never had this issue before, it al started after updating to Mac OS Big Sur.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. 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?

  11. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. 2021 cannot create new document

    I just updated from 2020 to 2021 version.
    Now, when trying to create a new document, the dialogue works as expected but when clicking "erstellen" (create) nothing happens.
    Even after restarting the whole system (Mac Catalina).

  17. 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.

  19. some lines in textbook can no longer be read, whole line blacked out in Indesign 15.1.2

    After updating to InDesign 15.1.2
    some lines in some text boxes are blacked out, text cannot be read anymore
    I used Arial. A few other fonts show the text, but do not remove black line of unused text.
    I can make text white, it will then show up on black background.
    Thanks for your support.
