  1. Endnotes with Numbers following Hebrew Script in an English Document Not Working

    I have an issue with Endnotes and how they are working in English following Hebrew inputs into the text. It seems to be isolated to endnotes with or including any kind of numbers. I have attached a WORD document, showing screenshots. This I have to say is quite a needed fix, or a solution. I was informed to submit this as a bug.

  2. character size

    Hello,
    I have an issue with the size of some panel. For example, the "paragraph" one and the "character" one are oversized, they are too long and I can't reach the end or even redimensionized it. How can I fix that?

  3. Trackpad scroll issues with InDesign v15.0.2 on new MacBook Pro 16" 2.4 GHz 8 core processor 64GBmemory. .

    InDesign v15.0.2 Trackpad is not scrolling well on new MacBook Pro 16" 2.4 GHz 8 core processor 64GBmemory. I just upgraded my equipment to top of line MacBook Pro. and bought the subscription to Adobe all apps. I have been using 2013 MacbookPro with CS6. My files are unresponsive in Indesign. I typically collage with 600+ photoshop images to make is single design on multiple pages. On my old system I was not running into problems except new OS was incompatible with CS6.

    This is unacceptable. I called Adobe and they were not helpful.

  4. Increase the size (thickness) of the ruler guides

    Hi,

    Give the possibility to increase the size (thickness) of the ruler guides (all the time / when hovering over the ruler guides or using a shortcuts). This would be present in the software preferences. It's not always easy to see them well. Thanks.

    Bye.

  5. Cross-Reference won't save a <cs style="stylename"></cs> format. It just strips the tag out of the data.

    Before updating to the latest version of ID, I would get an error each time I tried to use the <cs> tag to format a cross-reference. It wouldn't let me save the data.

    Now it lets me save the data, but it just strips the tag out.

    I have a character setting called Bold.

    I defined a cross-reference format as:
    <cs style="Bold"><fullPara /></cs> on page <pageNum />

    I save it, and I click OK. Then I reopen the format page, and it says the following:
    <fullPara /> on page <pageNum />

    It's like the tag never existed. No matter what…

  7. story editor cursor block cursor disappears

    InDesign 15.0.2 on OS X 10.14.6 on a MacBook Pro with an external display.

    Go into Preferences and set the story editor cursor to "block," the fattest size.

    Put the cursor toward the righthand side of a longer line, and use the arrow keys to navigate the cursor up and down.

    The cursor should stay visible at the end of the line, as the default cursor does.

    Instead, when the cursor is at the end of the line, it disappears, making editing and navigation by arrow keys difficult.

  8. Text-fields behave strange after InDesign 2020 update

    Since the release of InDesign 2020 there frequently appears a circumstantial bug, that is not reasonable in any way:

    When i double click (edit) or just copy any text-box, suddenly the content is moving downwards (about 3pt), so that it disappears in overflow text and has to be realigned. It even happens when I copy and paste those Elements or duplicate the whole page, so one of the most fundamental functions became futile (image "Adobe-Indesign-Bug-duplicate.jpg")!

    Additional the maximum height of the box, before the text disappears in overset, isn't depending on the contents height like in older versions, but is…

  11. 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

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
