  2. 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.

  3. InDesign 14.0 x 64 Margin won't change since software update

    When I try to increase or decrease margins, nothing happens. It used to work great until my last software update.

  4. "Punched-in" values are not properly input. Possible latency issue.

    For example, when punching in numbers to resize an object, the first number will often go ignored.

    Also, when punching in new values for type (Font Size and Leading), when hitting TAB (from Font Size) to punch in a new Leading value, the value will not completely replace the current value if currently an "auto" value if I begin typing immediately. This results in an unwelcomed and unwarranted "invalid numeric value" popup.

    This has been happening ever since I can remember (all CC versions)

  5. Support for higher resolutions

    I didn't find a possibility to open "Mehr Optionen" (more options) in the new tab "Eigenschaften" on the right side BY DEFAULT. On TFTs with 2160px there is no need für reducing options

  9. I can't zoom in.

    I can't zoom in. I'm used to use command and + but that is not default. When I'm trying to use command and = it doesn't work either. Is that

  13. Copy/paste creates <unknown> objects

    InDesign CC 13.1

    When copying text frames from Illustrator to InDesign, type gets outlined, which is fine. For some reason, it is not recognized by InDesign as a compound path, but rather as a group of <unknown> objects. Having many of those in a document slows down InDesign greatly.

    A fix is more than welcome. Thanks.

  14. The Application frame need many clicks before it wants to move.

    I have to click about 5-10-20 times on the Application Frame of InDesign CC 2018 to make it move. I tried to click on different places and it still the same problem. Sometimes it works on the first clic, but more often i have to click many times. I'm on Mac OS 10.11.6, InDesign 13.1. I had the problem on the trial version, i called Adobe Technical service, and they told me to update when my licence will be activated... but it is now, i'm on the last version, and i still have the same problem.

  15. 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.

  16. Modal disappearing, causing deadlock

    Sometimes the Options-Window I have to frequently use to change the baseline-grid (sic!) disappears miraculously thus disabling any input (thankfully I hit save regularly).

  18. alt/spacebar navigation

    WTF has happened to the alt/spacebar shortcut for navigating pages with the T tool? It's suddenly become much more sensitive to release timing, so if my finger comes off the alt button a split-second early I end up with rogue spaces in text. Never used to be a problem.

  19. Opened files become modified (unsaved asterisk appears) without any modification

    I'm working with file A, but I keep open the B and C files (either I didn't close those or I'm copying content from those), after some time B and C becomes modified (unsaved, the asterisk after the name appears). The Edit→Undo does not show any alteration (it's grayed).

    May it be the problem that A, B and C belongs to a Book?

  20. cross-references bug introduced with 2018.1 update

    The 2018.1 "search" added to cross-references is great and will be very helpful. Unfortunately it appears that a bug was introduced in the process of adding this feature.

    When you double-click on a cross-reference in the Cross-References panel, it opens the Edit Cross References window. This used to open the window to the cross-reference you selected so you could edit it. Now, it opens the window at [All Paragraphs] with the first paragraph in this list selected.

    This is a MESS for my workflow, as I now have to search through the cross-references to find and select the one I…
