  1. 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:

  3. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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

  9. "Align to bleed" option in Window > Object & Layout > Align panel

    Hi everybody !

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

  10. 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.

  14. Futura Std fonts

    When I use Futura Std in InDesign, some letters [‘a’ & ‘o’ in attached screen shot shift to a tiny, superscripted letter. Other fonts look normal in this same text, and Futura Std does not do this in any other application. Even in InDesign, the problem occurs in some situations but not others.

  16. Workspace

    Initially after using the newest InDesign update for 2020, I tried using my old workspaces. But I found I could have only one document open and working at a time. I would have to open one document, work on it, save, and quit. Then I could open another and do the same thing. Obviously this is not productive, especially when you might need to copy something from one document to another. So, I have been using new and different of the stock workspaces to get me through in the hopes this will be fixed. Thanks.

  17. display artifact

    Viewing this document, which is still in draft form, the bleed area contains a dark gray horizontal line across the top and a larger dark gray rectangle near the top of the right-hand side. There are no unseen objects in the design that could be causing this.

  19. cc2017/18 cannot install on macOS Catalina

    Please enable a version of InDesign CC2017 that can be installed on macOS Catalina. It causes problems for large book files when they have to be converted to newer versions of InDesign. It often takes a long time from start to finish for a book project. When a file is created in one version of InDesign, it should be kept in that same version until it is completed, to avoid unintended errors and discrepancies creeping in. I have many files that originated in CC2017, which I now cannot open on a new machine operating with macOS Catalina.

  20. CC library icons (svg files) not copying over correctly

    Version: inDesign 2020

    When I drag, copy over, or place a linked icon (svg/eps) file from our corporate CC library, it only displays a white box.

    I have asked a couple of coworkers to try the same thing and they don't have any issues.
