  1. New Document Window Zoomed/Cropped

    New document window opens zoomed in.

    Some options for opening a document (right hand side) are not visible and can't be selected as they are off-screen.

  2. IND 15.0.3 - Will not load text on first opening

    Ever since last upgrade to 15.0.3, on the first opening of a file it will either not load the text, or load corrupted text. This is happening to two workers on two different MACs at two different locations within our team. Driving us crazy, having to close and open a file twice in order for it to open properly.

  3. inserting page

    I'm working on a document which is around 100 pages. so far i was able to insert pages or a spread to the document without any issue but since yesterday, if i'm tryint to insert a page, its getting inserted not in the line of the spread but away from it.
    I'm not sure if the problem is understandable, so i am attaching a few screenshots.
    Asked around to a few colleagues, but no one has faced such issue before.

  4. Page numbering logic

    I don't get why the logic of page numbering is that complicaded in InDesign.

    imagen you would like to show the number of the current and the previous page on the same page.
    You can not simply put those varibles form Markers, saying Current Page Number an Next Page Number on the same page. – That would give you twice the Current Page Number.
    Current Solution: You have to write them into two conected Text fields, which are supposed to be ob bouth pages, that you want to put a number on.

    here my idea:
    Why wouldn't you make a…

  6. None Master issue

    I don't understand how the None Master works. If I create a document with no margin and no columns, then go to the A Master and add margin and columns, sometimes the None Master will delete the margins and columns, and sometimes it seems to adopt the margins and columns from the A Master.

    I would recommend that the None Master ALWAYS delete all the columns and margins so it's a blank page. Or at least consistently return to the columns and margins of the A Master, but blank would be better.

  9. 15.0.2 Margins & Columns Issue on Body Page 1 (Windows only)

    Version: 15.0.2

    Steps to reproduce the issues:
    I was teaching 3 students on 15.0.2 (all on Windows) how to create a new document. We set up a 12-page file and specified 3 columns and changed the top margin in the New Document dialog box. With the preview checkbox on, body page 1 did not reflect the changes. We could see the bleed and slug lines appearing when defined. We could also see the A in the corner of the the body page 1 icon in the Pages panel, indicating that A-Master was assigned.

    Expected result
    When you define a new…

  12. Need Permissioning for File Access and Edit for In Design File. WE should be allowed to set up security to prevent unauthorized access to

    We should be able to create optional security in terms of file opening, file edit and file save/print fo all In Design Files. Permissions should be able to be modified from remote location, if for example a former employee with previous permissions copies file and takes proprietary template. This should be for desk top and remote server accessed files. Especially Server hosted files. I cannot believe this is not possible. Similar to PDF Files which are password protected. In Design files should have same security feature set as PDFs. This is critical and urgent.

  13. Resize Pages Tool does not work

    The resize pages tool does not work. The page size always jumps back to its initial size. You always have to enter the size manually. Also the resizing from an anchor point of the page does not work properly. Especially elements outside the artboard (for example in the info section) don't place accordingly.

  16. Indesign creates blank pages

    While I type, in some pages, Indesign moves the text to next page, and creates a blank page. With each letter I type the texts keeps moving on from page to page. I live this in several documents with different layouts.

    The version I'm using is 15.0.1, win 10 x64

  17. "Option - Click' to resize page

    Version 15.0.1 Indesign 2020

    When resizing the page, the 'shortcut' of 'Option - Click' to resize the page is now not working. It now just springs back to the size it was.

  18. Can not open new document or a new file I'm working on.

    It happens once in a while. It has no connection to corrupted files.
    The Indesign is open, but the document it self doesn't show! Also if I ask to open a new document.
    Tried Relaunching, Tried Updating to Version.
    It all seems to work as a VOODOO ... Very annoying!
    Is this a bug you have?

  19. Revert Feature

    The 'Revert' feature is greyed out & cannot be used.
    This needs to be corrected.
    It takes extra time to manually put in original dimensions on a document.

  20. Import Word file - cannot set 'Import as Static Text' as Default Preset

    When I import a Word document I want the option 'Import as Static Text' ticked all the time.

    The problem is that if I tick 'Import as Static Text' and make it a new Default Preset, InDesign remembers this until I quit InDesign and then relaunch it. The relaunched InDesign doesn't remember it - it remembers the Preset name, but it doesn't remember to tick 'Import as Static Text'.

    This happens in CC2019 and CC2020. Could you please fix it so that the Preset you make remembers to keep 'Import as Static Text' ticked all the time, even when you…
