  1. Open recent items gone!!

    Up until the last version of Indesign, we could go File > Open Recent and find files that we've been working on. With the latest update 15.0.2 this has now gone :(

    Now I'm using MORE time going through Finder to find these files!!

  2. Wrong links

    I've noticed that whenever a file with links is duplicated on a different server, the copy will link to the images of the original file instead of the ones in its own folder if it can. If those images are modified in the copy, the changes will also appear in the original links instead of the right ones.

    This is a huge problem, because what the user think is their most recent version of a work might not actually be at all, which can lead to very serious mistakes, and as far as I can tell it's been going on…

  3. qr

    Hi,

    We created a business card for our employee, that includes QR code generated within InDesign. When we tested it with Android it reads everything correctly, but when reading QR code with iPhone, it only reads first and last name and job title. We tested with several different Iphones and everywhere the same result. But when we've tested a similar business card from a colleague, it worked ok. Sending both business cards in the attachment. Daniel Fischer's business card is not working correctly on the iPhone.

    We are using InDesign 15.1.1 x64

  6. Document Title


    1. InDesign 15.1.1 on Mac. Just updated on 6-24-20.

    2. Open file. Choose File Info. Attempt to type in the Document Title field.

    3. Should see the text I am typing.

    4. Text is not visible on screen. If you type something and then save the file, the text will be there the next time but you can't see all of it.

    5. See attached files.

  8. Language issue

    Is there a way to change the Korean version of this Adobe Indesign to English version. I am a Filipino newsletter lay-out-editor and using the Korean version makes my work totally impossible. Thank you.

  9. 15.1 High Sierra data merge- wont load file when colon (:) is in header

    On selecting data source it does nothing. comma-seperated, tab seperated. All the same issue, the records and headers won't show. Like nothing happens.
    I do get my import options. They don't make any difference either.

  11. Live Preflight reporting a false error in linked indesign docs

    Because of a crazy proofing process, when I put together a magazine, I create all the stories in individual indesign docs and then place the indesign doc into a "main" doc when they are finished. Preflight is flagging every placed indesign doc as having low resolution photos. When I open that doc to fix the issue, all the images are the correct high resolution and nothing is flagged in their preflight. Im worried Im going to miss a real issue.


    1. Im using Indesign 15.0.3

    2. Create an indesign doc with images that are high res, place it into another indesign doc,…

  15. tutorial crashes when switching workspaces

    Nearing the end of the tutorial, at the interactive part. When switching workspaces in InDesign, the tutorial film closes. If you switch back to "Essentials," it re-opens. Makes it difficult to work along with the tutorial for the "interactive features" section. Thanks.

  16. 数値を入力するときにポインターで選択している数字がわからないんですけど

    cc2015から急に2020に飛んできたら勝手がわからないんですが、125Qを235Qにしたいとき、先頭の2文字だけ選んで12って打ちたいのに、選択してる文字が反転したりしないのでわかりづらいの私だけですか?
    12の後ろにカーソル入れてdelete2回とか面倒だし。

  17. 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.

  18. WE MUST USE A SHARED SERVER

    Files can randomly corrupt when using a shared server? Every respectable business uses a shared server! We can't put confidential info on employee desktops as is recommended by Adobe because they can't support a shared server! At minmum if you can't support a shared server then make back up files which can be accessed if a file is corrupt. And no, your recovery option doesn't work when a back up file is corrupt. I've just missed a deadline, spent a ton of money on lost work and need to recreat all the lost work. Thanks Adobe........for nothing!!! Adapt to your…

  19. 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!

  20. 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…
