  1. Multiple listings of same font in Find Font menu

    There are multiple listings of the same font in the Find Font menu in CC2019. All information is the same, all applied characters are the same, but there is odd behavior.

    --FileACC2019WithDocumentsfontsfolder.png shows double listing of Trade Gothic LT Pro Roman.

    --FileACC2019WithoutDocumentfontsfolder.png (when I take away access to Document fonts folder, no other changes), one instance switches to "Regular" instead of "Roman"

    --FileACC2017WithDocumentfontsfolder.png shows what happens with I open this file in CC2017 (no double listing)

    --FileACC2017WithoutDocumentfontsfolder.png (Document fonts folder hidden) shows what happens with I open this file in CC2017 (no…

  2. Fonts Not Loading

    Font loading is sporadic in InDesign 15.1.1 on macOS Catalina 10.15.5

    Fonts that were working just fine yesterday suddenly won't load. I've cleared caches to no avail.

    This affects InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop... however, Photoshop seems to be hit or miss... sometimes they load, sometimes they don't.

  3. Open recent items gone!!

    Up until the last version of Indesign, we could go File > Open Recent and find files that we've been working on. With the latest update 15.0.2 this has now gone :(

    Now I'm using MORE time going through Finder to find these files!!

  4. Wrong links

    I've noticed that whenever a file with links is duplicated on a different server, the copy will link to the images of the original file instead of the ones in its own folder if it can. If those images are modified in the copy, the changes will also appear in the original links instead of the right ones.

    This is a huge problem, because what the user think is their most recent version of a work might not actually be at all, which can lead to very serious mistakes, and as far as I can tell it's been going on…

  5. qr

    Hi,

    We created a business card for our employee, that includes QR code generated within InDesign. When we tested it with Android it reads everything correctly, but when reading QR code with iPhone, it only reads first and last name and job title. We tested with several different Iphones and everywhere the same result. But when we've tested a similar business card from a colleague, it worked ok. Sending both business cards in the attachment. Daniel Fischer's business card is not working correctly on the iPhone.

    We are using InDesign 15.1.1 x64

  7. Problème fonction assemblage

    Avec in Design 15.0.2, lors de l’assemblage d’un fichier : je n’arrive plus à avoir un dossier complet qui regroupe la mise en page , le dossiers de polices et les liens : les liens (images et logos) du fichier ne sont pas intégrés dans le dossier Link alors que tout est bien liés dans la mise en page (les images ne sont pas manquantes).

    Le problème n'existe pas avec la version précédente.

    Pouvez-vous m'aider ?

  9. Missing fonts, spell checking not working with InDesign 2020 build 15.0.2

    There are two bugs with InDesign 2020, build 15.0.2, which make it unusable for me. I have reverted to build 15.0, and the two bugs are not in that build.

    Bug 1 is that often when I export pages as a pdf, or I package the document, the fonts I am using in the document become missing afterward. I need to quit InDesign in order to have InDesign find those fonts again.

    Bug 2 is that spell checking no longer works. The spell checking window comes up, but it never catches any misspellings.

    Reverting InDesign to build 15.0 takes care…

  11. Document Title


    1. InDesign 15.1.1 on Mac. Just updated on 6-24-20.

    2. Open file. Choose File Info. Attempt to type in the Document Title field.

    3. Should see the text I am typing.

    4. Text is not visible on screen. If you type something and then save the file, the text will be there the next time but you can't see all of it.

    5. See attached files.

  13. Button: Delete optional state and its content

    In the Button and Forms panel, the button [Delete optional state and its content] is always gray, it will not delete the selected button states.

    This is in ID2018, 2019, 2020 Mac & Windows. I have to go back to CS6 to see it working.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. 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,…
