    Sometimes the delete button on keyboard just quits working for no reason. When I close ID and reopen it with the file again, the delete button is working OK again.

  5. Font KNU (karen) doesn't display correctly in InDesign files.

    When working on files that are written in Karen language, suing KNU font, this font is not displaying corrently.

    The same font displays fine in PowerPoint, Word, PDF software, but not in InDesign.

    Also, the accessibility information doesn't accept text in Karen.

  6. Corrupt overlay palette window -- stretched and can't be closed

    The overlay palette window is ever-present when I open InDesign. Every time I close it from the 'window's dropdown (as it is to wide to find the X close window icon, it just keeps reopening? It is too wide to fit on the screen, and the text in the panel is pixelated. I have tried docking it to other windows to contain it, but it corrupts those too. Anyone else had this problem?

  7. Spell Check Defaulting to Check Document. Needs to Default to Current Story

    Spell Check in Indesign is defaulting to checking the entire document. I need it to check the story. Or, at the very least, allow me the option of telling it to default to checking the current story.

  9. Keyboard shortcut no longer works after CC2014 - always works before this version

    Assigning a keyboard shortcut to 'Baseline options' does not work from CC2015 onwards. (CS3 to CC2014 assigning a shortcut does work).

    If you go to 'Edit > Keyboard shortcuts > Product Area: Object Menu > Baseline Options' and add a keyboard shortcut for this, it does not work from CC2015 onwards no matter what key combination you use for the shortcut. However, CC2014 downwards it always works.

  11. Pages Panel shows scroll bar starting at wrong page

    This only happens on startup of InDesign.

    I open a document that has many pages from 2 -120.

    The Pages panel has the scroll bars positioned at the top, next to pages 26-27.

    If the scroll bars are at the top of the document, then pages 2-3 should be showing.

  12. Running head containing forced line break inserts space incorrectly

    When a Running Head text variable is generated, under certain (common) conditions, a double-space is inserted where a forced linebreak is used.

    To reproduce bug:


    1. Insert a Running Head text variable into a master page running head position.


    2. Specify the first instance of, say, Level-One paragraph style.


    3. In a multi-page text flow, insert a Level-One styled paragraph with enough text to force a line wrap.


    4. Within the Level-One paragraph, insert a Forced Line Break (FLB) character.


    5. Scroll text back and forth to force update of the text variable display.


    Result: On the page containing the Level-One paragraph, the running head…

  13. Aperçu des séparations - COULEUR REPERAGE

    Bonjour
    Dans la palette Aperçu des Séparation, il faudrait une coche pour masquer ou afficher les objet utilisant la teinte repérage.
    En effet il est très difficile de vérifier si un document contient accidentellement une teinte non désirée, car la teinte repérage peux masquer certains détails, comme par exemple un petit objet jaune quadri dans un document imprimé contenant plusieurs tons directs dont le jaune P109.
    Cordialement

  14. Stop showing the "Setup Libraries Your Way" EVERY TIME I open creative cloud library

    This thing is beyond annoying. Yes it was helpful the first time I saw it. But once I clicked it off once, I never needed to see it again. But this little f***er shows up every time I open the CC libraries after a restart. GIVE ME A DON"T SHOW AGAIN..... Please.

  17. Easier automatic page numbering

    Make it easier to create automatic page numbering in InDesign. I would not have remembered to select the text frame, then navigate to TYPE > INSERT SPECIAL CHARACTERS > MARKERS > CURRENT PAGE NUMBER if it weren't for Google. This feature should not be an obscure tool, and should not be buried in panels. I feel like this feature should at least be in the Master Page Panel's drop down options (from the hamburger).

  19. no opening screen

    When ID opens there is no splash screen. I have to click the task bar icon for a small box to appear top left of screen. Then I have to repeat and only then can I drag it open across the screen.

    Additionally the man splash scree has an endless loading animation of the rotating circle. Nothing loads into it. However once I have overcome the initial boot so far the version is usable, albeit with some functions not responding to keyboard shortcuts.

  20. InDesign to InCopy Layout Malfunction

    My company's graphics department develops scientific posters, and as a writer, I often have to make small adjustments to the text and am only given access to edit through InCopy (using version 14.0.2). This problem does not happen with every poster, but I often find that the whole frame of the poster is shifted when I open the assignments file in InCopy (please see example photos). I'm able to make my edits, but I can't export to a PDF without having the bleed, header, etc. shifted as I see it in InCopy. Our graphics department thinks this is a bug…
