  2. NEW DOCUMENT DOES NOT APPEAR AFTER LEAVING DOCUMENT SETUP

    WHEN CREATING A NEW DOCUMENT VIA THE UPDATED DOCUMENT SETUP DIALOG, NO DOCUMENT APPEARS AFTER CONFIRMING CHOICES. PRESSING COMMAND-N TO CREATE A SECOND DOCUMENT MAKES THE FIRST DOCUMENT WINDOW APPEAR UNDER THE NEWLY OPENED DOCUMENT SETUP DIALOG.

  3. tables jumping to next page

    Sometimes tables that fit on one page jumps to the next page causing reflow. It does this randomly and can't figure out why. This has to be caused by bug in indesign. I really wish Adobe would focus more on fixing the many bugs in its programs rather than adding new features.

  4. Hidden characters not showing

    Hidden characters are not showing up in version 16.1, either from keyboard shortcut or from drop down menu. I ensure that overprint preview is not on and I'm in normal mode (not preview mode). If I quit and restart InDesign they come back for a bit but then disappear again.

  5. Page/Spread Duplicate and Place doesn't work after last update update

    When duplicating pages (or spreads) using Option (on Mac) and dragging inside "Pages" window, it no longer allows you to drag this duplicate anywhere in the page order list, but all the way at the end. This is extremely inefficient now and a lot more work to re-organize pages again after the duplicate is made. This is frustrating since this was a feature before and now it's gone. Please, bring it back.

  6. Can not open an IDML file

    I lost the .indd file and unable to open the file in .idml. He tells me that InDesign does not support this type of file or an extension is missing. ??? Yet everything works normally for other .idml files

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. Fails to save, needs to be recovered every time document opened.

    Only way to save is make a small change, repair and recover then do not close until finished.

  12. 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?

  13. 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…

  15. 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…

  19. Big Sur + Indesign

  20. Catastrophic loss of index data

    Yesterday I laboriously created an index of a 60-page document. Today, half of the index entries are gone. And the IDML backup I made of the file shows all index entries as "PN," which, of course, is totally incorrect.

    It appears that the file lost all index entries after page 40, yet I know they were there yesterday, since I entered them laboriously for hours on end.
