  1. Adobe 2020 build 15.0.2 - loses installed fonts

    When working with InDesign 2020, fonts that are installed on the system, go missing especially if I either export some pages as a PDF, or package the file. If I quit InDesign and restart, InDesign finds the fonts and I can work with the document until I do another PDF export or package the file.
    I never had this problem with InDesign 2019 and earlier. It just started with InDesign 2020 and build 15.0.2.

  3. Language issue

    Is there a way to change the Korean version of this Adobe Indesign to English version. I am a Filipino newsletter lay-out-editor and using the Korean version makes my work totally impossible. Thank you.

  4. 15.1 High Sierra data merge- wont load file when colon (:) is in header

    On selecting data source it does nothing. comma-seperated, tab seperated. All the same issue, the records and headers won't show. Like nothing happens.
    I do get my import options. They don't make any difference either.

  6. Live Preflight reporting a false error in linked indesign docs

    Because of a crazy proofing process, when I put together a magazine, I create all the stories in individual indesign docs and then place the indesign doc into a "main" doc when they are finished. Preflight is flagging every placed indesign doc as having low resolution photos. When I open that doc to fix the issue, all the images are the correct high resolution and nothing is flagged in their preflight. Im worried Im going to miss a real issue.


    1. Im using Indesign 15.0.3

    2. Create an indesign doc with images that are high res, place it into another indesign doc,…

    I have previously published online with no issues.

  10. tutorial crashes when switching workspaces

    Nearing the end of the tutorial, at the interactive part. When switching workspaces in InDesign, the tutorial film closes. If you switch back to "Essentials," it re-opens. Makes it difficult to work along with the tutorial for the "interactive features" section. Thanks.

  12. Variable fonts broken with World Ready Paragraph Composer

    Using the World-ready composer essentially breaks the glyph width interpolation of Variable Fonts. The outcome is that text set in a Variable Font will receive the Variable Font's default style's horizontal glyph widths for any axis location, resulting in unusable overlap or gaps.

    Attached you find a sample Indesign file with comparison and a screenshot thereof. This happens with any Variable Font I have tested so var, but to complete the same test case as included, download https://github.com/adobe-fonts/source-sans-pro/releases/download/3.006R/source-sans-pro-3.006R.zip and install VAR/SourceSansVariable-Roman.otf as well as OTF/*.otf files.

    Link to Indesign file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/h8fpld7ks7k8rb4/bug-report-variable-font-world-ready-composer.indd?dl=0

  14. 15.0.1 doesn't find fonts in document fonts folder

    If I open a document that has a Document fonts folder [in the same folder as the document itself], InDesign 15.0.1 consistently fails to find those fonts or let me select them. So the document opens showing all those fonts as missing and there's no way to fix the problem.

  15. 数値を入力するときにポインターで選択している数字がわからないんですけど

    cc2015から急に2020に飛んできたら勝手がわからないんですが、125Qを235Qにしたいとき、先頭の2文字だけ選んで12って打ちたいのに、選択してる文字が反転したりしないのでわかりづらいの私だけですか?

  17. Import specific pdf page with Data merge

    It could be interesting to include a specific page from a pdf into a data merge link and not only the page 1.
    It could be useful when we have a lot of pages in the pdf and only one image by page.

  20. I can't type lower case c but can type other lower case letters.

    I can't type lower case c but can type other lower case letters. For example when I type pickle I get pikle. It also switches the font.
