  1. pages panel collapses

    My document has many pages, 50 or more. When I open the document, the pages panel, more often than not, is completely collapsed, and I have to manually resize it back so that I can see all of the pages.
    I have the latest version of ID. I have been using versions of ID since 2001, and I never had this problem until I purchased this one. It makes me feel regret for buying it, I can tell you. It might seem like a small thing, but believe me it is annoying.
    I know ID inside and out, but nothing…

  2. Fond de page en gabarit qui se transforme en bloc image dans les pages du document lorsqu'on importe des images dans ces pages.

    Sous InDesign 2017.1 build 12.1.0.56.

    Je dois créer 8 panneaux différents comportant 1 logo blanc par panneau sur fond noir.

    Pour créer mon fond noir et l'appliquer aux 8 pages de mon document en même temps, j'utilise un bloc vide avec couleur de remplissage noir sur le gabarit A (par défaut à la création du document). Je m'attends donc, comme d'habitude, à ce que ce fond soit en quelque sorte verrouillé sur les 8 pages de mon document et que je ne puisse intervenir dessus qu'en me positionnant sur mon gabarit.

    Ensuite j'importe tous mes 8 logos en PDF que…

  3. Blocked into portrait mode

    My computer's touchscreen and, accidentally touching The screen, I pressed something that made all my pages go into portrait mode and I can't find a way to get them back into landscape mode. Please help! I need to finish my portfolio for tomorrow and this bug is really disturbing my work! I've already tried changing the orientation by going into file>documents setup, but the settings say my pages are already in landscape mode, even though they clearly aren't!

  5. Indesign won't stop loading when adding a new page. Incredibly frustrating!

    Indesign won't stop loading when adding a new page. Incredibly frustrating! Tried clearing other tabs, restart and shutdown computer, even updating won't solve this painful problem! I can't edit / add pages to my resume that I need to forward to a job application!

  6. New Format in InDesign CC

    Beim Anlegen eines neuen Formats kann man rechts oben im Optionsmenu die genauen Masse eingeben. Mit der TAB-Taste kommt man dann ja immer eine Option weiter. In Adobe Illustator und in Photoshop funktioniert das in der gewünschten Reihenfolge, im InDesign (deutsche Version) nicht: da folgt nach der Breitenangabe bei betätigter TAB-Taste die Frage nach der Einheit (z.B. mm etc.) und dann (nach weitere TAB-Taste) erst die zweite Grösse des Dokuments (also die Höhenangabe). Eigentlich sollte die logische Reihenfolge ja lauten: Breite > Höhe > Einheit.

    In english:
    When creating a new format, you can enter the exact mass in the…

  7. Enable Layout Adjustment Fails

    After Enabling Layout Adjustment, then changing the page size, I get an error message that reads "Internal error communicating with AI rulebase. Layout adjustment could not be performed."

    The document page size does in fact change, but pages in spreads actually overlap. Rulers at top of page do not show correct page size except on single pages (for instance, the first and last page of a facing-pages document).

  9. Mistakenly copying layer name instead of layer content

    Nobody command-clicks the an Indesign layer hoping to copy the layer name, but much of the time when attempting to copy the layer content, the layer title is the only thing brought into the clipboard.

  10. InDesign Just Doesn't Work

    In a brand new file with 300 pages, tried placing a 100-page Word file numerous times, and it just wouldn't work. After a certain number of pages, the text would just stop. Sometimes, it would think that there was more text that I could place on the next page frame, and when I'd do those steps, it would just either create another blank frame, or pile multiple new frames of text on a single page. This is basic functionality that should be bulletproof, and it isn't. (For reference, I'm a long-time tech author who even taught PageMaker to clients in…

  12. Speech note bar for oral presentation

    I propuse a speech bar (under each pages) to write his speech for an oral presentation. It can be really usefull when you prepare a diaporama for a presentation and know what say.

    When you finished your diaporama document, you can directly print all your speech separetly & begin to prepare oral.
