  1. 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.

  2. BUG - 2020 - Scripting - GREP - Can't replace by empty string

    In Indesign 2020, changing a GREP search result to an empty string doesn't work.

    app.changeGrepPreferences.changeTo = "";

    In a Text search it does work perfectly...
    app.changeTextPreferences.changeTo = "";

  3. avenir font glitch, HELP

    Recently did Indesign update, now my Avenir font glitches across all of my documents and comes up as gibberish. Sometimes if I close Indesign and reopen it will view fine, other times it will not. Typically it will not view correctly. This is a basic system font. I cleared all fonts on my system and did a restart incase an installed font was causing the issue, it was not the issue. My co-worker is having the same issue as well on her end.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. essentials classic hyphenation missing

    I am using essentials classic as I always do, and when you select the paragraph section on the top bar, there's usually a hyphenation button which when clicked, stops it from being hyphenated, but its randomly gone, one second it was there, i pasted text into a text box and now it,s gone. Any clue how to fix this! I have found other ways of using it but the button still hasn't come back!

  7. Folders on desktop with only Document Fonts inside

    I'm not sure which area this applies to, but every time I save or Package a file I get a bunch of empty folders on the desktop with job numbers from previous work and all they contain are a 'Document Fonts' folder inside. This is REALLY frustrating. So far, if I quit and restart, it stops for a while, but starts up again.

    Each time I safe or package a file it creates one extra folder, cumulatively. The latest time I saved, 8 irrelevant folders appeared on my desktop.

    This is confusing and I inadvertently deleted an active work folder…

  8. Cross-Reference Character Width Incorrect

    When inserting a cross-reference, InDesign acts as if the character of the cross-reference are much wider than they are. In my example below, it forces the "8" to flow down to the next line, even though an 8 character clearly fits, and a line break is not necessary.

  9. Bug: InDesign Index page ranges not working when using "Next use of Style" options

    Adobe InDesign 2020
    15.0.2 x64

    Issue:

    I am trying to create index entries that include a page range (such as 26-29) instead of a single page number using paragraph styles.

    I am having trouble getting the page ranges for my indexed content to update correctly. Specifically, the index entry always only shows the first page of the range in the index pane on the first attempt.

    I can sometimes (but not always) trick it into updating the page range correctly. I attached a video of it finally working after five failed attempts.


    Here is what I tried:

  11. Software changes

    I use InDesign daily for my publication and when you keep changing things, it throws me off and wastes my time.
    I used to be able to print to save pages to the same folder, but now when I print to save a page, it takes me to whatever folder I most recently placed an image from. VERY frustrating. Also, I now have to scroll to get to my most recently used fonts rather than the drop down font list being automatically positioned at the top with most recently used fonts.
    I wish you would just STOP changing things! Every…

  12. All InDesign 15.0x EXTREMELY SLOW

    All InDesign 15.0x is EXTREMELY SLOW, almost unusable.
    I had to go back to version 14.03 to be able to work. This is on Windows 10 Pro 64 bit, v1909. It takes minutes to paste a picture.
    Something has gone wrong in the Adobe world!

  15. InCopy Export Omits Index Markers

    Hello,

    I have run into trouble on the InCopy export from InDesign with regard to index markers and am wondering if anyone else has the same situation.

    The export of InCopy files from InDesign omits index markers in specific scenarios due to the nature of XML.

    Specifically, if the index marker of a subentry occurs earlier in the text than the main entry, any other subentries after the main entry will disappear when checking in or saving the InCopy file, even if no edits are made in the file.

    The reason for this seems to be that all index markers…

  16. document fonts bug

    Bij gebruik van de document fonts in indesign 15.02 worden bij het afsluiten van de job en het verplaatsten van de order naar de server gedeelte van de ordermap weer terug gezet naar de mac. Dit is alleen te voorkomen door na elke order indesign af te sluiten en weer opnieuw op te starten

  17. Separate the footnotes in a specific block

    Hi,

    Give the possibility to separate the footnotes in a specific block that could be manipulated. It's a good idea, no ? Thanks

    Hi everybody !

    In Window > Object & Layout > Align... why not also offer "Align to bleed" ? It would be very helpful. No ? Thanks.

  19. document dialogue

    On opening the latest version of InDesign, instead of the usual new document dialogue all I get is a constant circling - see attached. I can only override it by seeting Preferences to Legacy new document which is certainly not as usueful.
