  1. Pop ups fail

    Hi, I have Id cc 13.0.1 by Adobe Creative Cloud. When I double clic on an indd file all pop up menus from differents windows don't work, I can choose (e.g. vertical alignment from framework option or multiply from effects) but the original option remains. If I open the app first and the file later it works perfectly.
    Hope this helps. Bye!

  2. Google File Stream error code: 14

    My InDesign (2018) document is synced for offline use in Google Drive. (We've just begun using Google File Stream). I go to open the document with WIFI disabled and this error message appears (see attachment).
    When I enable WIFI again, the document opens without issue.
    I'd appreciate any help please! Thank you.

  3. It is impossible to export iframes to ePub

    To Adobe
    It is well known, that Apple blocks iFrames. But when you can insert youtube codes into an iframe in InDesign and see it work perfect in "Public Online", then why do the video disappear when I export InDesign files to the ePub format.

  5. Import failed when placing .indd file, while user has file open. (on SMB share)

    Import failed when placing .indd file, while user has file open. (on SMB share).
    User receives the message, "Import failed." when placing a .indd file inside of another InDesign file.

    If this is a limit of InDesign it would be helpful if the error message was more detailed. If this error prompted the user to close the open file, it would be clear what is causing the issue. I believe that I have been able to place an open InDesign file in the past.

  6. [Indesign CC 2018][BUG] Label info empty on library item when running javascript

    When running a Javascript which checks a library item, the label property is always empty. Script labels can be applied on items on a page and dropped in a library. When adding the item to the page again, the label is still present. But when checking the label of an item using a script when the item is still in the library, the label property is empty.

    Just test this using ....
    alert(app.libraries[0].assets[0].label);

  8. Linking Issues Between Mack and Windows

    Our team is experiencing broken links in files saved on our network between Mac and Windows users. How do we seamlessly link documents between the two different operating systems? When I open a file on my Mac and save it and a Windows user tries to access the same file, the links are broken. The type of server we are on is a Windows Server 2008 R2.

  13. Extension Manager can't be found in Mac version of Indesign 2018

    I'd noticed that OpenAsset was always opening without me installing it. I close the window, it pops back up. I don't want to use that extension, but can no longer find the extension manager to turn it off. I tried using the extension dropdown to uncheck OpenAsset, but it just reopens a few minutes later.

  14. XML structure

    I'm working with a client that needs to use InDesign and InCopy to create documents that are marked up with XML. After relinking stories or updating graphics in InCopy, it destroys any special structure set up with the XML. For example, I have a handful of charts that are nested under a parent tag which is then nested another parent tag. Inserted a chart into this frame in InCopy--saved and closed. Opening this file in InDesign, all nested XML is blown open.

  17. Cannot open InDesign - error 0xc000012f

    For the last week or so, I have not been able to open InDesign. It seems it is the only Adobe programme causing me problems.
    I've tried uninstalling and installing InDesign - nothing happens. I've sent a few bug reports, but haven't received any answer to how I get the programme to work.

  19. Random De-selection

    I've found this to be an issue ever since I first started using indesign 3 years ago. Sometimes when shift selecting objects, other random objects that you have already selected will unselect themselves. For example, I am selecting 4 random objects on my spread, I select 1, then 2, then 3, then 4, and object 2 unselects itself when I selected object 4

  20. Weird display bug in bookmark panel


    1. Latest Indesign on Windows 10 (1709)

    2. Open document, open bookmark panel

    3. Show all bookmarks correctly

    4. Bookmarks are randomly cut in the middle of letters

    5. Screenshot attached.

    Info: the INDD file was made in ID CS6 and now opened in ID CC, then saved. TOC and bookmarks have been recreated after this, but the problem remains. The weird thing is, this suddenly happened today. I've been using CC since 11-30-17 and before today it was OK.
