  3. indesign crashes when deleting marker

    when i delete an index marker, indesign crashes. It's not with all markers, just one word that crashes the document. That word is in my table of contents and in my index so both crash.

  4. Creating TOC cause InDesign crash

    I have a document of 97 pages and I need to create the TOC with one single style (it's a list of product SKUs).
    Every time I click OK on my TOC dialog to create the TOC InDesign crashes.

  5. table of contents bold italic

    1. Use a style for a header that converts text to bold face.

    2. Use that header style to have header text that includes some italics.

    3. In the Table of Contents pane, associate that header style with a style that is Regular type face.

    4. When updating the Table of Contents, the entry for that header will correctly have Bold text replaced with Regular text, but will leave Bold Italic text unchanged. It should replace Bold Italic text with Regular Italic text.

  8. book file don't work

    Hi,

    unfortunately it looks like the book file isn't work anymore with InDesign CC 2018.1 in Windows 10.

    On my Mac it is working! I have attached two hardcopies (the one with correct page numbers is from Mac, the other from Windows 10 pro).

    Obviously I tried to create a new book file and added files manually – same result.

    As a result all cross-references between documents are wrong.

    Any ideas?

    Ulrich

  11. Previous version’s book files not saving

    Using InDesign 2022 Prerelease (17.0.0.96).

    When I opened my Book file, created with the current released version (16.4.0.54), in this new version, it wouldn't let me hit ⌘S to save.

    It keeps prompting me to save the file anew, as though it had just converted it fresh or created the Book.

    The world is not going to stop revolving around its axis over this one, but it was disconcerting and annoying.

  12. bookmarks for TOC are not correctly ordered in bookmarks panel

    When I generate a TOC, some sections of the bookmarks that are created are nested within one another when they should be at the same level. The TOC styles in the screenshot show the proper hierarchy, but the bookmark folders are not correct. What is causing this. Also, clicking on the bookmarks does NOT launch the destination. I have to manually choose the menu items "Go to..."

  13. In-Design still doesn't support the Automated Numbers in "Devanagari Script" Indic Language Marathi & Hindi

    Hello Team, since i am using In-design for my work almost everyday, and a die hard fan for using Unicode fonts for Indian Language (JFYI I mostly work in Hindi + Marathi languages and Devanagari Script used by both these languages) and I use many fonts including that of Adobe and locally developed Unicode fonts

    the Major issue I am facing is In-Design still doesn't support the Automated Numbers in "Devanagari Script" they still appear in English / Roman Numerals, which is a very annoying thing to see page numbers & auto numbered lists Showing Numbers in English / Roman…

  14. table of contents very buggy

    i think i know how to use indesign cc's table of contents feature, but it doesn't seem to work as advertised, or demonstrated in numerous videos. i cannot get the revisions to the toc paragraph styles to effect changes in the toc itself. despite the revised and selected paragraph style showing the new redefined settings, the toc only changes what is highlighted (not the rest of the elements in that style) and then reverts back to the original display on update. will be faster to just design it as a text block, which i don't think is the point. anyone?

  15. page numbers incorrect

    My Book has multiple InDesign documents and 2 sections. Page numbering works fine except where the first doc in the main section is concerned. When I change the order in the Page window by dragging docs and dropping them between others the page numbers change to reflect that. When I try to change the order of the first two docs the one which was second becomes first but retains the old page numbers. The one which was first is now second but its page numbers begin with page number 1. See video.

  17. Cross reference page number not appearing

    While attempting to populate page numbers as cross references the leading text shows up, but the area where the number itself should be appears as a narrow blue box with a pound sterling icon beside it. An attempt to create a new document to test and only importing a couple of elements has cross references crash the program as soon as they are created and applied.

  18. Certain overrides on Objects Styles do not hold when synchronizing Book

    Overrides on Objects Styles when synchronizing.

    Object styles: I have all the overrides (that I tested, such as background color, type of stroke) holding, BUT the XY coordinate. (position of the object on the page)

    When I hit sync, all the overrides hold, including the size of the object (which is in the same Style menu), but not the Position. This means all the objects with the Style on it jump to their default position, resulting in a bad mess.

    My imperfect solution is to remove the XY position from the Object Styles — I want to be able to…

  19. ID attempts to rewrite the book file instead of saving it

    When I finish working on the chapters of my book and close everything, while closing the book file ID asks me whether I am sure that I want to rewrite the book file. I am only asking to save the file, not to overwrite it. This happens all the time, on different computers and versions of the app.
