  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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?

  5. 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…

  7. 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…

  11. Big Sur + Indesign

    Beim Exportieren bzw. PDF Schreiben ist das Fenster JEDES MAL "klein" und zusammengeschoben. Soll man jedes Mal das Fenster maximieren?

  12. 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.

  13. iCloud drive

    inDesign thinks links are gone when files are being stored in iCloud Drive (even though the cloud version is still in the same folder on my computer). Please allow inDesign to download linked files in iCloud Drive automatically so I don't have to download and relink manually.

  14. hyperlinks

    You create hyperlinks for your pages - and nothing appears in the Hyperlinks panel, so you cannot see what you've already hyperlinked!!!

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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

  20. 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
