  1. InDesign 2021 is not allowing me to open files created in previous version

    I cannot open any files created in previous version. I had to reinstall InDesign 2020 to be able to do my work. InDesign 2021 is giving me a message about damaged files, is trying to repair them but without any success. So this version needs to be fixed asap.

  2. Type tool hotkey defaulting to selection tool

    When I use the hotkeys T or V to switch between the Type tool and the Selection tool, the Type tool automatically switches back to selection after a pause.

    IF I select the Type tool via the side tool panel, this behavior does not occur. This has been an ongoing experience since the 2021 update.

  3. InDesign: Nach Update auf 2021 ist komplettes Dokument zerschossen

    Hallo,
    nach dem wir von 2020 (15.1.2) auf 2021 (16.x.x) upgedatet hatten, hat es unsere kompletten Magazinseiten zerschossen. Headlines // Fließtexte etc wurden komplett durcheinander gerührt und nicht mehr an der richtigen Stelle stehend angezeigt.

    Unsere kompletten Stilvorlagen (Absatz- und Zeichenformate) wurden total zerschossen.

    InDesign erschwert uns von Update zu Update unsere tägliche professionelle Arbeit.

    Wir sind nun erstmal wieder auf die alte Version gegangen, das hat zum Glück funktioniert – aber der Frust in der täglichen Arbeit bleibt!

    Wir können nicht ständig unseren kompletten Workflow umstellen! Das geht einfach nicht.

  5. Save and replace issue

    2021 update. When saving (and thus replacing) it is not going back to the original folder. It goes to the last folder used, so all of my files are getting messed up.

  6. Placing photo in frame

    When I'm trying to place for example photo in frame (cmnd+D of File -> Place...) nothing won't happen. Just rolling the beach ball...

  7. Automatic footnote numbering in a book

    Dear Sir, dear Madam,

    Please make the numbering of footnotes automatic from chapter to chapter in a book, as for the chapter's first page.

    It is very tedious and risky to do it manually, which seems the only option today, even in the last release (16.0).

    Thank you.

  8. Arrange object after unhide

    Using Adobe InDesign 15.0.1 x64 (CC 2020), after I unhid several linked image objects, I was unable to arrange those elements forward or backward to make it visible on top of other elements. The objects were not locked as I checked several times and even copying / pasting them would not allow me to rearrange them. Restarting solved the problem after I spent 20 minutes fighting with it.

  9. Impossible to create new InDesign document in version 16.0 on Windows 10

    Dear Sir, dear Madam

    I just began to use the latest InDesign version (16.0 x64) on Windows 10, but there is an incredible bug: it is impossible to create a new InDesign document after having created a first one!!!

    The only way is systematically to delete all InDesign information in my AppData\Local and AppData\Roaming.

    Please fix urgently this bug!!!

    Regards

    Pascal Garin

  12. dragging from cc libraries causes screen to move over

    HI, this bug has been around since forever. Please fix it.

    When dragging items in from cc libraries the page will move over a little bit. If you drag multiple times eventually you have to re-centre the screen. Its very very annoying.

  13. Track changes slow

    The track changes feature is very slow. If I click on »accept and search for next« (sorry, I’m running a German locale of InDesign) in a long document (100+ pp.), I’ll have to wait for the next tracked change.

    Please speed this up!

  14. Handtool Spacebar not working (CC2020)

    When ending Sleep Mode on my MacBook Pro, the Handtool via the spacebar in InDesign does not work nor in any other Adobe Application. No other Application open besides Mail. Restart Applications doesn´t help. Just a whole Restart of the Computer.

    Happens with macOS Mojave (10.14.6)

  15. Keyboard Shortcuts dont work often with InDesign

    Using windows 10 - InDesign 2020

    Keyboard shortcuts often will not work, forcing me to minimize or restart the program to get them to work again. Very annoying.

    shortcuts that I am using for example( W to enter workspace mode, Ctrl-Z for undoing and even Ctrl-S to save)

    Adobe, stop adding features until you fix the issues that are present. especially ones that have been around for years or months.

  16. Ligatures - a completely stupid *OPTION* Adobe shoves down our throats

    So, ligatures is rearing it's ugly head again.

    I simply cannot fathom why Adobe feels the need to shove this option down our throats.

    I am working with documents I have used in the past 2-3 months and now, I would guess a recent update to InDesign, the ligatures option is on by default and is now reformatting my documents for me.

    Great. Thanks Adobe. Thought you were a professional software development company, clearly not.

    Can you not understand the MASSIVE IMPACT this has on my workflow, now having to check all pages of all documents I am sending out…

  17. Hyperlink shows up grey in hyperlinks panel despite the URL NOT working

    When using the hyperlinks panel, links will show up grey when the URL is non existent, they don't show up as red.
    The screen shot shows group 42 which is grey, when it should be a red error.
    the other shot is my indesign version--using CC

  18. Better Trackpad

    Hey. This may sound weird but I would love for the trackpad on my windows laptop to work the way it does on my mac since they've come such a long way. I bet users would appreciate the effort from your side.

  19. escape key works intermittently

    On macOS, escape key works intermittently to close any dialog box, such as placed image, export, or save as. For decades, I have been flying along using the escape key to dismiss dialog boxes—until these latest versions. SO frustrating. Please fix!

  20. Indesign 15.1.2

    Depuis hier, mes raccourcis clavier "dupliquer/déplacer" (fleche+option+cliquer glisser) ne fonctionne plus.
    De même, déplacer un objet ou le faire tourner avec la touche majuscule pour qu'ils se déplace selon un axe horizontal/vertical ou qu'il tourne selon 45° ne fonctionne plus :-(
    Je ne trouve pas pourquoi...
    J'ai la dernière version OS et Adobe..
    Merci pour votre aide
    Estelle
