  1. Pages window not open

    InDesign CC 14.0 x 64 running on Win 10 Pro November 2018.
    The Pages Window stayed open at startup on previous InDesign CC. Now it is closed, other windows like Paragraph Styles and Info stay open, but not Pages.
    Can this be fixed please?

  2. InDesign 2019 scrubby zoom no longer works (command + space + click)

    Prior to InDesign 2019, you can press command + spacebar + click to be able to activate the scrubby zoom feature.

    Now when you press command + spacebar + click you just draw a box that once you unclick, it zooms to that space... Very undesirable..

    Did a preference change on the update somewhere that I don't know about? Because I can not find this feature in the Preferences now.

    Please advise.

    Thanks.

    The feature you are talking about is called ‘Animated Zoom’ (it’s Mac only feature).
    It is turned ON by default on Mac machines having a GPU card with a compatible monitor attached.
    Check the Document Name in its tab – does it say ‘GPU Preview’? If not, press Shift+E to switch to this mode.
    Also, check under Preferences > GPU Performance and see if ‘Animated Zoom’ is checked ON. It should be enabled for this feature to work.

  3. gridify when placing images

    In Version CC2019 (14.0) the gridify function misbehaves when placing images.
    With the gutter-dimension changed for 1 spread the gridify function keeps the same spacing as with the other pages. For drawn shapes using the gridify-function everything acts normal. MacOS 10.13.6 (High Sierra)

  5. Splitting large documents using Extendscript Toolkit script hangs InDesign v.14 for several minutes

    Running script (extendscript) that takes a large document and splits it into individual documents based on their section hangs for several minutes before completing task in InDesign v14. Prevous version (v13) of InDesign did not have this hanging issue and complete task quickly. Attached is the script (and referenced script) used.

  6. hand tool

    Hand tool icon not appearing under random conditions CC 2018.

    Very confusing when you hit spacebar and move icon does not change, yet functionally still works.

    EXAMPLE: move icon is still there despite pressing spacebar. I wait for it to change to the hand icon, but nothing. Then i try to use it as 'normal', and it works as the hand tool, then changes at last.

    It should change when you press it. NOT not wait, until you USE it.

  7. Menu select font, bug in multiples monitors

    If you use multiple monitors and go select font in menu. The position is wrong, the menu of fonts appeared to top, but the correct position is for bottom. So view font list is very bad.

  8. Copy/Paste of image/graphic blocks very slow

    Adobe InDesign CC 13.1 on Sierra
    The copy and paste of graphic blocks in the same doc is very slow. When there is not a large number of links, it is pretty ok BUT when adding a lot of new picture links, the wheel keeps turning during ca. 10/15 seconds after each copy and paste of a graphic block also.

    The temporary solution is to change the name of the image folder so to disable the dynamic links to pictures. But not ideal.

  10. Cannot change printer or centering options on occasion

    This happens in both the print module and the print booklet module.

    I click on the printer's name in the standard InDesign print dialog box, go to select the new one, click on the new printer, and it acts like it selects that printer only to see that it reverts back to the printer that was previously selected. I try multiple times and it still does the same thing. I have to try different printer menus to get it to stick.

    This issue also happens when I try to change the centering option for the document. There is clearly excess…

  11. InDesign CC UI scaling problem on multiple monitors with different resolutions

    InDesign Version: Adobe InDesign CC 13.1 x64
    Operating System: Windows 10 Pro build 1709.
    Monitors: Portrait orientated Dell U2415 24 inch (1200x1920) with 100% windows scale option and Landscape orientated Dell UP3216Q (3840x2160) with 150% (Recommended) scale.

    Steps to reproduce the issue:
    1. Open InDesign CC on the 32 inch monitor
    2. Move all or some of the panels to the 24 inch monitor

    Expected result:
    Panels in the 24 inch monitor should adapt to the resolution of the monitor the same way Photoshop CC and Illustrator CC does – crisp and nice.

    Actual result:
    Panels don't adapt to monitor's…

  12. Top Selection Bar Glitch


    1. InDesign 208

    2. For example, let's say I have a file open and I want to create a new file without using the shortcut CTRL+N. When I bring my cursor to the top bar containing File, Edit, Layout, Type, Object, etc... it selects the correct category which results in a dropdown menu, but as soon as I move my cursor a little, the system throws the cursor over like 2 tabs at a time. So for example, I click File, the menu drops down, I move the cursor to select the type of New file I want and then suddenly I…

  14. InDesign CC 2018 UK dictionary is wrong

    The UK dictionary in InDesign CC 2018 is wrong. It is recognizing both American and British spellings of certain words as correct. The biggest issues I've found so far are "iz" versus "is" spellings (e.g. capitalize/capitalise) and words that need an extra "e" (e.g. ageing). I have all text boxes in my document set to UK English, and spellcheck is finding certain misspellings (e.g. "or" versus "our"), but not others.

    This is a major problem for those of us who regularly have to "translate" text from American English to UK English. Is there a way to import a better UK…

  15. LAYERS

    Hi, dragging objects to another layer with the small rectangle in the layerpanel is not secure... it seems that the hotspot or trigger is out of range..
    When i click-drag at the left-side of the filled rectangle it works sometimes but is not easy way to order objects like before.

  16. Recent files panel

    the link to the files in the Home panel is broken or inoperative.
    If I close a job under Ind (cc2018- 13.0.1), it is not possible to return to it, even immediately afterwards. I didn't move the file from his folder, but Ind can't find it.

    I tried to put "0" in the number of files in the preferences, then to quit Ind, then to reopen Ind, to put "1" file in preference and to reopen this same file by the browser, without success.
    The pop-up indicates the file moved or locked, which is not the case.
    Can "recent files"…

  17. images pixelated when rotated

    When I place an image into InDesign it imports high res, but when the image is rotated, it becomes severely pixelated. Even when the image rotation is a small degree - just a few degrees even. The image preview becomes distorted severly and changes distortion with every degree of rotation. I should mention that I am a professional graphic designer with over 20 years of experience so I have tried all of the obvious fixes - switched view to "overprint preview", set display performance to "High Quality", deleted preferences.. I have done everything imaginable. Running a machine with 3 GB…

  19. STACK ORDER BUG: Deleting page 1 and 2 causes object to change stack order on subsequent pages

    Problem
    1. Discovery of text box missing from page 39 in printed Catalogue.

    Review
    1. Immediately review INDD document to attempt to recreate error and report to client preliminary findings.
    a. The bug effects the stack ordering of objects on subsequent pages. In the Food & Beverage case, this missing text box from page 39 was in fact simply “underneath” the background yellow box.
    b. Error occurs when splitting out the cover pages to a separate document (to allow for a spine), whereby Page 1 and 2 and last 2 pages of document are deleted. Software bug appears to only…
