  3. Save as... drop-/pulldown menu not working

    Dropdown menu for saving as IDML file is not working. I have this problem for some (2-3?) years now. I have waited in hope it would be solved in a coming update, but after all those years it is still not solved. Therefore this bug entry.

    I tried resetting the preferences (Cmd + Ctrl + Opt + Shift) but this does not change anything and the problem remains.

    Indesign version 15.0.1 on a late 2015 iMac

    Highlighted green pull down menu's work, highlighted red pull down menu's do not work.

    Like said; I tried resetting the preferences (Cmd + Ctrl…

  4. Adding items to the CC Library

    I've noticed when adding items to the CC Library that chasing squares icon doesn't stop, giving the impression that the addition has not finished. Quitting and restarting InDesign seems to settle it.

  6. "Windows version 1709 not supported" yet, "You must update your system to install InDesign v15.0"

    Hi Adobe Team - Searching your site it sounds like Windows 10 should not be a barrier to working in the latest version of InDesign, but I am unable to install InDesign v15.0 on my work computer.

    My Creative Cloud Desktop window displays the below message in quotes:

    "Update required
    You must update your system to install lnDesign. Please check the following:
    Windows 7 Service Pack 1, Windows 10 or later (Note: Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 version 1507, Windows 10 version 1511, Windows 10 version 1703 and Windows 10 version 1709 are not supported)"

    I just spoke…

  8. Backwards apostrophe

    The "right-single-quote" mark (i.e. apostrophe) in InDesign is rendering backwards, ONLY with the font that I'm using (Acme Gothic). The apostrophe is correct with other fonts, and on other Adobe products (Illustrator and Photoshop). It's specifically when using this font, and in InDesign. It's even using the correct character (’) but it's appearing backwards. It also exports backwards in a PDF as well. I'm using Adobe InDesign 2020 on a Macbook Pro.

    The ’ for the font Acme Gothic has been set to Mirrored in your text frame, that’s why it is rendering backwards.

    To change all instances of this, highlight it with the mouse, right-click, the choose ‘Load Selected Glyph in Find’. The Find/Change dialog opens with the selected glyph already in the Find Glyph field – its Unicode ID is 201B. To change the Glyph to the non-mirrored one, just type 2019 in the Unicode ID field . Then click Change All. It will change all instances of the mirrored apostrophe with the non-mirrored apostrophe.

    Hope it helps.

  9. Dragging images

    I haven't been able to drag photos once I import them into InDesign or even Illustrator. It worked for a split second after restarting my computer, but once I stopped dragging it, I could no longer drag the photo or any other photo.

  10. JavaScript not work When mounting /Volumes/users

    MacOS 環境で /Volumes/users が存在すると(サーバーに users でマウントすると)ユーザーが作成した javascript (.jsx ファイル)が動作しなくなります

    /Users/(UserName)/Library/Preferences/Adobe InDesign/Version 15.0-J/ja_JP/Scripts/Scripts Panel/(ScriptName).jsx

    が /Volumes/users フォルダにマウントしていないと正常動作するのですが /Volumes/users フォルダが存在しているとエラーのビープ音がなって何も行われないです

    /Volumes/users フォルダにマウントしていると Macintosgh HD の /Users フォルダが /Volumes/Users フォルダと見なされているようです

  11. The QR code generator is missing the field for a fax number

    The QR code generator (InDesign 2019 & 2020) is missing the field for a fax number. It would be great if this would be integrated! Thank you in advance!

  14. column break

    Adobe InDesign 2020, macOS Mojave
    If you have a very long word or a URL without breaks, if that is inserted into a narrow column, so that it fills the entire column, at the point where hyphenation is forced, a column break also occurs. Obviously, that's wrong.

  15. Captions box no longer auto fits to box

    When I use the captions feature on a place image, the caption box no longer auto-fits to the size of the image boundary, but rather to the actual size of the image, even though it is scaled down in the box. This was not an issue in previous versions.

  16. Image catalog Script for Contact Sheets Not Working

    Since update to Adobe CC 2020, Image catalog script in InDesign doesn't work. The Apple Script version of this sample script always gave me an error, but the Java version always worked. I LOVE this script. WAY better than creating Contact Sheets in Photoshop or Bridge. Please fix this. I use it every week.

  18. custom workspace save overwrites all

    Running ID 15.0 on Mac OS 10.13.6

    I have multiple custom workspaces depending on if I am working at home, the office or remotely.

    Any time I save a workspace, regardless of if it is a new workspace or overwriting an old one, it changes all of my workspaces to the most recent saved version.

    Effectively, I only have one custom workspace now. Any suggestions?

  19. workspace problems in Indd 2020

    I am working on two major projects and have created my custom workspace that gives me the panels needed for these projects. After saving the changes made for the day and closing InDesign, upon opening Indd for the next session, the work space has been set to Essentials, even though the files that require my s=custom workspace are open. I go to the workspace menu and change the work space to my working workspace and it does change, but the menu still says Essentials.
