  1. "Copy Links To" option in the Links panel does not flag as a change in the document.

    Therefore, InDesign does not prompt to save the change and the document continues to link to the previous location if closed. I was able to reproduce this problem on MacOS High Sierra and Windows 10 with both InDesign CC 2017 and 2018.

  3. splash

    Title: Splash screen/Startup Screen won't go away.

    Description: Whenever InDesign is launched by a script the splash screen stays open indefinitely.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1) Quit InDesign
    2) Make a new AppleScript, with the content:

    "tell application "Adobe InDesign CC 2017"

    launch
    

    end tell"

    3) Run the script

    Result: InDesign launches, but the splash screen never close

    Expected result: InDesign should launch, but the splash screen should hide, once the launch is completed.

  5. GREP queries not saving correctly

    I'm having a GREP issue in InDesign CC2017.1, I tried saving three different GREP queries but it saved the first one three times. I tried about three times to go back and correct the other two, but it would just remain the first GREP query. It seemed to only affect the Find field, what I saved in the Change field seemed to be fine. The only way I could get them all to save correctly was to physically go into the GREP XML files and enter my GREP query and save. I'm using OSX 10.10.5

  8. Nach Installation von Indesign ist die Tastaturbelegung vertauscht (Querty statt Quertz)

    Nach der Installation von Indesign CC ist die englische Tastatur installiert obwohl eine deutsche Installation eingestellt war. Die Funktionalitäten sind alle auf Deutsch. Leider finde ich nirgends die Einstellung, wo ich es umstellen kann. Kann mir da Jemand helfen?

  13. Custom GREP-queries are suddenly away

    I had a nice collection of custom GREP queries. But suddenly they are away. They were numbered from 1 to 18. I'm very down to do this all again … Is there a way to find this again? Where are the custom queries saved? I updated from macOS 10.12.4 to macOS 10.12.5. Maybe that's the reason? Or is the reason that I had numbered them?

  15. InDesign 2017 Froze and Will Not Shutdown or Quit

    I am using InDesign 2017 on a Dell Windows computer. I was synching/saving a document and it froze. I shut down the computer but when I reopened the computer the document was still there but I could not do anything with it. I cannot quit. I cannot use my mouse with it. It is frozen as if permanently in a state of incomplete saving at 75%. What can I do to rectify this?

    My partner cant load up her InDesignCS5.5 as part of her Master Collection.

    We've tried to reload software but don't want to keep doing it and wasting licensed uses.

    The error it generates it captured below in attachment:

    Its says entry point not be located in the dynamic link library... WORLDREADY.RPLN

    Is she missing a plug-in?

    Thanks for any assistance.

  18. Your decision to demand reactivation of a working program AND THEN NOT ALLOW THE REACTIVATION TO TAKE PLACE is reprehensible.

    Your technical rep called the CS3 suite an "end of life" product but it wasn't; it was enjoying a productive middle age until you put a bullet through its head. "End of life" should mean when new operating systems won't support it, not when you arbitrarily decide to kill it. I purchased that program outright and at significant cost, and you just stole it from me. I've always admired Adobe products but everyone involved with your business models should be ashamed of themselves. I plan to make my case against you LOUDLY on social media and in any other way…
