    Since the update to InDesign 2020 CC, the control panel >> interactive -> Media << no longer works. The control window opens across the complete screen and the system will hang up.

  2. InDesign tries to display interactive help while a script is running

    I've done a fresh install of InDesign and I run a (lengthy) script. InDesign is trying to display some interactive help (and failing to do so) while the script is running.

    Interactive help must be suppressed during script execution!

    The empty help frame stays visible while the script is running.

    This is on Windows 10x64 with InDesign 2020 15.0.1

  4. stall

    InDesign stalls most of the time for more than a minute after nearly every clic on any part of the screen : menus, boxes, objects, pannels... Even on buttons when saving or exporting.
    I have two macs with the most recent version of InDesign and Mojave 10.14.6.
    I complained about this a few months ago. We has to wait several weeks to get an improvement, but now it is starting again.
    Please do somethiing quickly, we lose a great amount of time and money.

  6. Suddenly my document reverts to an earlier version

    Ever since I updated Adobe InDesign to version 15.0.1, my current document suddenly reverts to a state from several minutes prior. All of my recent changes are gone, up to ten minutes, and they are not even available under Edit > Redo.

    I've started saving more often now. Recently, this problem happened again. It suddenly went back to an earlier state than I had last saved, so I closed without saving, reopened, and the file was exactly in the state I expected, which was a LATER state than my document had reverted itself to (thank goodness), but not where I…

  7. idlk lock files cause SharePoint to stop syncing

    I am experiencing exactly this issue (see link below).

    I don't understand how you have ignored so many user requests and done nothing about this issue in nearly 7 years!

  8. Screen error with High Quality Display turned ON

    Pages do not display correctly when viewing ("High Quality Display" with "Overprint Preview" turned OFF). Bands of blank screen occur randomly on the screen.
    However objects display correctly when "Overprint Preview" is turned ON.

    This occurs in both InDesign 14.02 and continues to 15.0.1

    See attached files including MAC info.

  9. CC 2020 + Catalina makes computer really slow

    On a brand new iMac (Catalina), opening CC 2020 apps makes everything lag. When Adobe apps are not open, computer performance is fine. According to the Adobe Support Community, this issue seems pretty widespread and Adobe's suggested fixes do not help.

  10. Poor performance with placed InDesign documents

    When placing a really large dimensioned InDesign document into a smaller document the performance of that smaller document is crippled to the point where it becomes unusable, especially when there are many placed InDesign documents.

    To test:
    Create 4 different InDesign documents that are 3600 x 2580mm in size.
    Create an A4 booklet with 4 pages.
    Place a different one of the larger InDesign documents on each page of the A4 booklet.
    Try and navigate from the first page to the last page of the A4 document.

  11. InDesign CC 2020 lagging between actions

    Upgraded from InDesign 2019 and now I have an annoying lagging issue between actions like zooming, page scrolling, selecting objects, etc. Searched and many seem to be experiencing the same thing. I did everything mentioned... deleted, reinstalled, deleted cache, deleted preferences, etc with no luck. I'm on a late 2015 mac using Catalina.

    I Reinstalled 14.0.3 and and there is no lag on that version and works great. Seems to be only in v 15.0.x

    FYI, I temporarily resolved the lag issue in v15.0.1 by disconnecting the computer from the internet and work offline. Doing so resolved the lag issue…

  12. Incopy 2020. Please fix glitch. You have to use scroll bar to click "up" through queue lists - no longer able to click list.

    Incopy 2020. Please sort unclickable queue list on northward direction. Now you have to use scroll bar to access queues "higher" up. Revert to system as in previous version? Use of scroll bar is waste of energy. Thanks

  13. Hot Keying the Text Tool has been broken for 2020 versions

    The hot key for the Text tool is broken. I've tried the steps of resetting preferences the issue still persists - ever since the 2020 updates, hot keying to the text tool is broken. The tool is selected for a mini second before going back to the selection tool or other previous tool - there are plenty of mentions on this site with very little feedback on if the issue is going to be fixed - please give the community an update.

  14. Font variant not working since Catalina upgrade

    I have an issue/bug that is causing significant workflow issues and stress, and I have brought this up with support, as well as with the font foundry, for months without resolution.

    A font variant that I have used regularly (as part of a corporate identity) has disappeared from the font drop down list after I upgraded to macOS Catalina. This issue is happening in all the latest versions of Adobe products (Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign.) Only ONE variant is missing -- 'Folio Bk BT - Book'. 'Folio Bk BT - Bold', as well as another similar font 'Folio Lt BT…

  15. InDesign 2020

    InDesign is shutting down my palettes. So everytime i close out a document, my pallette set up disappears. Every. Time. I have to set up my pallettes every time and it is super frustrating. Is there a way (that I don't know) to keep my pallettes set up the way i want all the time? Also I am not touching tab, either.

    Also, why is there not a mobile InDesign App for ipad?

  16. cmd-J does not make the correct page active

    In a document with facing pages and a wider-than-usual artboard (10in):

    When using cmd-J to navigate to the left page of a spread, the page number indicator at lower left displays the right-hand page number, and the right-hand page is what's active.

    This does not happen at all magnifications.

  17. Workspace and documents will not open

    My (mac) laptop battery died before I could plug it in. I restarted the computer, opened InDesign, and it appears to start up fine, however no workspace will show up and no documents will open. I cannot work. I restarted, then I opened while holding keys to delete preferences and restarted again and nothing.

  20. spelling issue

    I'm trying to spellcheck but it is defaulting to Dutch 2005 reform even though its set to English UK in preferences. How do I fix this as it used to be fine?
