  1. Custom GREP-queries are suddenly away

    I had a nice collection of custom GREP queries. But suddenly they are away. They were numbered from 1 to 18. I'm very down to do this all again … Is there a way to find this again? Where are the custom queries saved? I updated from macOS 10.12.4 to macOS 10.12.5. Maybe that's the reason? Or is the reason that I had numbered them?

  5. In a document imported from word, endnote links don't work.

    I imported a word document with endnotes in indesign 2021. The link between the reference numbers and the endnote texts doesn't work. Any suggestion?

  6. Uservoice shows error message and creates double posts

    I've klicked on publish button and got a error message at my last post.
    I thought maybe it's a problem with the size of the attachment, so I've tried an other file and got no problems at publishing.
    Now I've seen, that the first two attempts, that were stopped by a error message of this system here, were published too.
    So fyi, I didn't want to make a double or tripple post.

    Maybe you want to take a look at this behaviour too.

  8. index marker grep bug in findchangelist

    The prelisted double to single space query in the findchangebylist.jsx also delets index markers between spaces.

    While using the find-exchange window in ID to first look for [space]+(~I+)[space]+ to exchange it with [space]$1 works well enough, putting this in the findchangelist.txt, it deletes the index markers aswell. (note: [space] is only to visualize a regular space. I'm not writing it out in my queries.)

    I also noticed, that they also only partially work in the regular GREP search in the F/E-window: using lookahead or lookbehind is only able to find the position of the marker but not the character that…

  9. Letter "a" does not appear

    I was configuring Indesign Preferences on a new document. Suddenly, the letter "a" stopped working. I mean, I can't write a single word with the letter "a".
    Tried to open older documents, and the letter appeared when I pressed the button!

  10. sticky rollover state on form checkboxes and radio buttons

    I'm having an issue with checkboxes and radio buttons. I have a normal, off, rollover, and on state. The off state is 70% paper fill, the on and rollover states are slightly larger graphics with 100% fill and drop shadows, and the on state also has a green fill.

    When exported to interactive pdf, the rollover state sticks and stays even after mouse out, causing the off state to rest on top of the rollover state. If I continue to mouse over the element, the drop shadow will get thicker and increasingly darker until black.

    I'm using InDesign 16.2.1 on…

  11. index bug

    Hi, I've got a large book which I'm indexing. I need to index our product codes alongside indexing normal reference - two examples are PBR030SETK and PBR30SETK. When I reference both of these (separately) the index automatically adjusts the second reference to match the previously indexed reference eg if I tag PBR030SETK that works fine, but then when I tag PBR30SETK it adjusts the reference to be PBR030SETK, but they should be appearing as two separate references. I typically tag product codes with a $ first, but it has the same glitch whether the dollar sign is tagged in the…

  14. InDesign M1 Expired

    Hi,

    Just downloaded (2021-06-01) the M1 version and ... seems 'expired'.

    I've have 'repaired' CreativeCloud, logged out, removed the InDesign M1 version then reinstalled it but I always get the 16.3.0.5 version.

    I've found a post re this expiration which told about the 16.3.0.14 but where can I get it ?

  17. TOC is not reading page number correcting.

    The title I'm creating TOC from contains the 'current page number' marker.

    It doesn't matter the format of the numbering I have set, ie. a, b, c or i. ii. iii or 001, 002, 003.

    it will only show the absolute number of the page in the document.

    Example file here

  18. the proofreader does not underline mistakes in InDesign

    Hello,

    The spellchecker does not highlight mistakes in InDesign, although it is "activated" in the preferences.

    Sincerely


    Bonjour,

    Le correcteur orthographique ne souligne pas les fautes dans InDesign, malgré qu’il soit « activé » dans les préférences.

    Cordialement

  20. Best update in years...Thank you!

    For years, Adobe has added cloud features, glitches, ignored issues, and created a more bloated and buggy program. This is the first update in years that has improved things people including myself have been asking for a long time (some since the birth of CC).

    Thank you! I hope this is a shift in direction as there is more to be fixed (mainly resource utilization efficiency and long requested productivity features for professionals.)

    Keep up this great work!
