  3. Master Page

    When setting up multiple 2 page spread master pages, there is an issue with graphics overlapping onto other master pages when 'Facing Pages' is switched on.

    For example - Master Page A is blank, and Master Page B has a green box along the top of the page.

    When the Master Page A is placed next to a Master Page B, the green box graphic spreads onto Master Page A as well.

    Please see the attached screen shots for clearer explanation.

    Thanks

  6. pasteboard changes size when pasting things

    InDesign CC 14.0.1 x64

    Pasting things sometimes changes the size of the pasteboard drastically. Pasteboard margins could be set at 10 in and 10 in and they change to a few inches horizontally and less than an inch vertically. We keep things on the pasteboard. This causes us to fix the pasteboard size many times throughout the day in multiple documents. Over and over again.

  7. Keep settings not honoured

    The Keep option 'Keep with next n' is not always honoured. Please open the attached document for an example.

    The page contains three threaded text frames. A heading appears on top of the second frame. A float was placed (with wrap applied) that pushes the text out of the second frame into the third frame so that the heading stays in the second frame, on its own.

    The expectation is that the heading moves with the text to the third frame.

  10. reference point

    Reference Point moves on objects when one object on page is rotated. Indesign 2019 (14.0.1) If one (or more) objects on a page is rotated, then the reference point on other objects on the page changes as you select through the different objects. This applies to text, picture, and tint boxes. If you try and make the reference point the same on all objects on a page, say the upper left point, then select other objects, they have changed to a different reference point. This makes it very difficult to align objects from page to page.

  11. Pages overview lag and stutter when using alternate layouts

    When using alternate layouts, navigation between pages is horrendous. Lag, stutter and erratic and unpredictable scrolling. Often the scroll bars "jump" or "skip", which makes it a nightmare to navigate between pages. This has been an issue for years.

  12. Can't share from Adobe Comp CC on the iPad (which is the whole reason I signed up for a trial)

    Sharing to InDesign causes Comp CC to Crash! The whole reason I signed up for the InDesign trial is to see how it works with Comp. Please fix or extend my trial until this has ben handled!

  14. 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.

  17. Page palette

    My page palette shows both the master-pages and the document pages outside the palette margins in vertical view. I can sort of work around it when selecting horizontal view but it is messy and still cuts of some of the pages on the outside.
    Restoring the preferences when opening Indesign fixes this bug but it's annoying. Is there a permanent solution for this?

  18. A5 paper size wrong

    The paper size for A5 in the presets is technically wrong as it should be 148.5mm wide and not 148mm. You can't change the built-in presets but it would be really helpful to do so as our onward print workflow relies on 148.5mm wide files and it's really annoying to have to change it after it's all been designed if you forget to change the page size at the beginning.

  19. Copying a page: Wrong position

    When making a copy of a page, for example a copy of page 1, the new copy lands on a wrong position in the page palette.
    1. Click and drag page 1 in the page palette while holding the alt-key. Then move mouse to the right, until a line appears between pages 1 and 2.
    2. Releasing the mouse button should result in a copy of page 1 between the original page 1 and 2. All subsequent page numbers should increase by 1.
    3. Instead of landing on position 2, the copied page appears on position 3.
