  2. Cursor vanishes when over frames

    My cursor is vanishing in InDesign when I move it over a frame (or object inside a frame). It is almost like it is underneath or behind the frame/object.

  3. Place Multipage PDF script not performing how it should

    Hi,

    I am experiencing trouble within my InDesign using the "PlaceMultipagePDF" java script under the scripts panel. My issue is that when I go to choose my file for my document and choose which page I want the PDF to start on (like page 5 out of 130) it no longer goes to the page I choose, but adds on top of the content on the last page (like page 105) and adds extra pages with the rest of the import of the pdf at the END of the document and not the one I chose.

    Thughts?

  4. high sierra and Creative Suite

    I discovered an interesting bug concerning the Adobe CC suite and the HighSierra OS. Let me explain :
    I'm using a LaCie Firewire 800 external hard drive on which I'm recording completed jobs.
    Regularly, but not always, when using the InDesign or PhotoShop drop-down menu, the cursor takes the form of the multi-color wheel and blocks any action until I force the external hard drive to eject.
    I use many other software publishers such as Panic, Apple, Google, GitHub, ... that never presents this dysfunction.

    Here is the LaCie drive information:
    Volume Name: LaCie
    Volume type: Physical volume
    BSD device…

  6. 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"…

  7. XML tagging with GREP

    GREP is a great tool, but when we use GREP to highlight more than one character style in a paragraph there is an issue with the XML tagging tool.

    Only the first GREP expression applies a character style that can be automatically tagged by character style. All further GREP expressions apply the character style but don't then go on to automatically tag by character style.

    Currently we have to work around it with scripting, but it is a very strange bug to have.

  9. [Indesign CS6-CC 2018][BUG] Wrong objects in array after moving page item to layer using Javascript

    When running a script to process page items stored in a custom array and after moving a page item to another layer, the array contents changes. Objects are removed and other objects which where not put in the array are suddenly located inside the array.

  13. Importing files - file sort is off

    When importing a group of files InDesign used to sort them alphabetically so that when you place them they are in order. This is no longer the case...it seems to place the files in a random order. This is a task I do often and not having this feature adds A LOT of work to my workflow. Please fix this asap.

  14. 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…

  19. clicking when I don't want it it

    Very jittery, hyperactive indesign. This is happening in Indesign and Illustrator for me.
    Even though I'm only clicking once, Indesign and illustrator will register 2 or 3+ clicks. This happens when I'm changing my point size, when I'm drawing anchor points, moving and image box, or alt-clicking to copy an item. The program will register numerous click even if I'm holding it down and ll get 5 text boxes when I was only trying to copy one.
    I am a windows user.
