  1. Paragraph borders do not update when the text length is changed

    When editing a paragraph with borders applied to them, the borders do not update correctly when changing the text length. This should occur dynamically, whereas currently, users have to tick and untick the checkbox as it does not always update.

    This occurs on Windows 10, Indesign version 16.4.

  2. Paragraph border and shading error with anchored objects

    when anchored objects (such as column Text or line numbers) are anchored in a Text using the options "Paragraph border" and "paragraph Shading" the borders and Shades will "randomly" disappear, or new border-lines will appear (when more then one paragraphs are merged, the lines always appear between the different styles, even though they work fine again when the object is de-anchored). Sometimes the appearance doesn't change when an object is anchored, but when the anchored object is edited (for example, when the size of the anchored object is changed).

    This is reproducable on my Windows 10, using InDesign 15.1.4.

  6. nested style does not appear

    When creating a new Style using the Nested Styles dropdown, the new style does not appear in the Styles Panel. I need to remove a number of unused styles created using the Nested Styles dropdown method, but since they don't show up in the Styles Panel, there is no way to remove them.

  11. Character style has trouble spanning more than one line

    It used to be that InDesign had no trouble when a character style ran more than one line. From some time, including InDesign 16.2.1, if a character style is applied to a string of text that starts on one line and continues to the next line, for example the last few words on a line and the first few words on the next line, InDesign will force all the text with that Character Style onto the next line, and space on the text on the previous line to span the entire line.
    However, if you don't use a Character Style…

  12. Paragraph Styles panel

    In InDesign v 16.1 the Paragraph Styles panel is not showing any paragraph styles at all. I have tried creating new styles, saving them and they also don't show up. I have tried opening different files, where I know I have Paragraph Styles and it's still not working. Character Styles (most of which are nested in Paragraph Styles) on the other hand are displaying properly. I have tried resizing the panel, as suggested by another user, but no matter the size, nothing displays in the body of the panel.

    If I open these same files in InDesign 15.1.3 the paragraph…

  13. Character Styles do not honor symbols

    I can not use the Find/Replace feature to globally assign a character style to a symbol (+, *, etc.). Tech Supp tells me only text can accept the character style assignment. It would be very helpful if you could fix this. I had pages of graduates to assign honors levels to using symbols and mosta of them had to be handled manually

  14. Allow importing of styles from CC library to application, not just to document

    There needs to be a way to import styles from our library into InDesign itself, not into a document. You allow us to import swatches this way, so why not styles?

    I have lots of default styles/swatches, which I created with no document open so they are applied to every new document I make. I got a new computer, so I added all of these styles to my library with hopes that I could import them all again.

    Nope.

    ID lets you add swatches from your library to the app, but as far as styles go you need to have…

  15. InDesign 16.1 - nested styles read line break as Paragraph return.

    If I place a shift-return in a paragraph with a nested style, the program reads it as a paragraph return and behaves as if the new line is an new paragraph, adding the starting nested style to the new line.
