  1. "Allow Selected Spread to Shuffle" behavior in Page Panel is opposite

    About Page Panel menu, "Allow Selected Spread to Shuffle".
    When you check here, you can’t shuffle pages. You need to be off the check to shuffle. It's contrary to content.
    I hope this will be fixed to "Not Allow Selected Spread to Shuffle".
    Thank you.

  3. Application Window Bug

    Please fix this annoying bug, Adobe! Ever since I updated to the latest version 18.4 the application window has broken. I have uploaded a screen recording to demonstrate what is happening. I use Shift + W a LOT to view my work in presentation mode. everytime I exit this view the entire application shrinks!! And I have to keep manually resizing the application window. But it doesn't happen when I uncheck 'Application Window' from the window menu. Please fix this. I have never had this issue before.

    Whether I have Visible Layers or Visible and Printable Layers selected in the Preflight Options, preflight still shows as having specific overset text despite layer being unchecked for visibility (ie layer is not visible)

  5. Crop tool namings for german version are irritating

    A view months ago I was posting this issue to the community board already. :-) Thanks to Mr. Tyson for directing me to this page here:

    Dear InDesign team,

    please take a look on https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/placing-graphics.html
    The assistance describes the differences between the three boxes named "crop", "trim" and "bleed".

    Well, in English there is no mistake if I'm going to import a PDF into my InDesign document, e.g. I'd like to display the final cutted format, than I choose for "Trim" or if I need to prepare a page for professional print shops than choosing "Bleed".

    But in the german…

  6. inDesign 18.3.0.50 often impossible to save document

    inDesign 18.3.0.50 often impossible to save document. Very annoying because to continue I'm forced to close the file / application and therefore I lose all the changes.

  7. When deleting or adding one single page in the middle of a facing page document, the images in the pages that follow will shift of misalign

    INDD V.18.2.1 (it applies to V17 too)
    Hi developers, this is a long-lasting problem n it really affects work flow.

    In a multiple facing page document, if you delete or add one single left or right hand page (in my example it's p.36), all the images in the pages that follow will shift in their positions. And if you add one page, then delete that page, the images will not go back to their original position. Allow document or spread to shuffle is checked. This is a MAJOR issue when you are working on document over 100 pages.

    This does…

  8. Duplicated page removes some character styles

    Duplicating a page removed some character styles in my document. Only on half the page though.

    Super weird bug, tbh.

    Your site does not allow uploading indesign files (!) but I can supply it upon request.

    It'd be better if that were not a public upload :)

  9. Unable to relink more than one image at a time

    Cannot relink more than one image at a time in InDesign 18.2.1 (2023) even when "search for missing links in this folder" box is ticked. Therefore I have to import each image individually, which is time consuming. Has anyone else come across this annoying problem at all?

  10. Descendant Report

    descendent over run the original person at more generations. This does not happen all the time, but occasionally. I uploaded first page and last page to illustrate. Didn't mean to load them multiple times I didn't realize I was doing it at first then I couldn't erase them. Hope this is not a dumb question sometimes I have a hard time explaining myself.
    Thanks

  11. Wörterbuch InDesign Deutsch -2006 neue Rechtschreibung 18.2.1. x64

    Wenn ich die Neue Deutsche Rechtschreibung ab 2006 für meine Dokumente einstelle, springt die Einstellung beim Wort selbst (rechte Maustaste) jedes mal zurück auf die alte Rechtschreibung. Egal was ich versuche - diese Einstellung wird nicht im Dokument abgespeichert.

    Ist das ein Bug?

  12. Opening documents as tabs cannot be deactivated

    Always open documents as tabs even if you have not selected this in the settings under User interface -> Open documents as tabs. I need different window sizes and find tabs impractical.

  18. addidtionl layer(s) are invisible in embedded INDD

    The objects on layers except the main layer are invisible if you place the indd document in another indd document. If you move the object to the main layer and refresh the link they are visible again. PDF export is not effected by this.

  19. new documents open in full screen

    I am using ID 18.1 on Mac OS 12.5.1. Every time I open a new InDesign document the document takes up the whole screen. I have unchecked application frame under windows menu. I have unchecked "show home screen" in preferences. It is extremely annoying to have to grab the lower right corner of the window to size it down every time I open or create a new document. Where is the setting/preference to fix this?

  20. Navigation bug on InDesign 18

    When I open a document with several pages (facing pages) and I use the option + up or down arrow shortcuts to scroll the pages, indesign skips 2 double pages instead of one. The bug is intermittent. Only on Indesign 18.0 and 18.1.
    I came back to version 17.4.1 and no more problems.
