  1. 0 on numeric keypad not working like it should.

    0 on numeric keypad not working like it should. the 0 button above letter keys works properly and so do the numbers 1-9 on the numeric keypad on the right works just fine. I tested the "0" button on other applications and browser to make sure the button physically works and it does. I even tested in adobe Illustrator,

  2. enableRedraw = false ignored during script run

    During a loop to load text snippets to my page ID 2020 ignores the fact that enableRedraw=false and DOES redraw the page on every loop

    app.scriptPreferences.enableRedraw = false;

        do {
    
    app.doScript(insertTexts2, ScriptLanguage.JAVASCRIPT, undefined, UndoModes.ENTIRE_SCRIPT, "Insert Texts " + C2Place + ":" + V2Place);
    } while (libs[8][3].geometricBounds[0] < pageTextBottom);
    app.scriptPreferences.enableRedraw = true;

    The text is inserted into 8 different frames -- during the loop it SHOULDN'T redraw the page -- but it does (slowing the script down)

    when I enter overprint preview, a white thin horizontal line appears towards the top of my page. It appears in different spots on different pages. one image shows the page normally not in overprint, the other shoes in overprint with a white line towards the bottom of the photo. the line moves to different places when i go back and forth from overprint view.

  4. Preflight and color white problem

    In the screen I am attaching an example of wrong preflight which creates many problems and slows down the work.
    This malfunction was also present in previous versions of InDesign.
    In the attached example, is used only one Pantone color and when I do preflight, it indicates 93 color as error.
    So I have to check however all errors and lose a lot of time but the reported errors refer to the present white color

  7. Save as... drop-/pulldown menu not working

    Dropdown menu for saving as IDML file is not working. I have this problem for some (2-3?) years now. I have waited in hope it would be solved in a coming update, but after all those years it is still not solved. Therefore this bug entry.

    I tried resetting the preferences (Cmd + Ctrl + Opt + Shift) but this does not change anything and the problem remains.

    Indesign version 15.0.1 on a late 2015 iMac

    Highlighted green pull down menu's work, highlighted red pull down menu's do not work.

    Like said; I tried resetting the preferences (Cmd + Ctrl…

  8. Adding items to the CC Library

    I've noticed when adding items to the CC Library that chasing squares icon doesn't stop, giving the impression that the addition has not finished. Quitting and restarting InDesign seems to settle it.

  9. "Windows version 1709 not supported" yet, "You must update your system to install InDesign v15.0"

    Hi Adobe Team - Searching your site it sounds like Windows 10 should not be a barrier to working in the latest version of InDesign, but I am unable to install InDesign v15.0 on my work computer.

    My Creative Cloud Desktop window displays the below message in quotes:

    "Update required
    You must update your system to install lnDesign. Please check the following:
    Windows 7 Service Pack 1, Windows 10 or later (Note: Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 version 1507, Windows 10 version 1511, Windows 10 version 1703 and Windows 10 version 1709 are not supported)"

  11. JavaScript not work When mounting /Volumes/users

    MacOS 環境で /Volumes/users が存在すると(サーバーに users でマウントすると)ユーザーが作成した javascript (.jsx ファイル)が動作しなくなります

    /Users/(UserName)/Library/Preferences/Adobe InDesign/Version 15.0-J/ja_JP/Scripts/Scripts Panel/(ScriptName).jsx

    が /Volumes/users フォルダにマウントしていないと正常動作するのですが /Volumes/users フォルダが存在しているとエラーのビープ音がなって何も行われないです

    /Volumes/users フォルダにマウントしていると Macintosgh HD の /Users フォルダが /Volumes/Users フォルダと見なされているようです

  12. Type tool hotkey still not working

    When moving from the direct selection tool to try to make a text box with the type tool hotkey (T), the hotkey still isn't working in InDesign. It shows temporarily as the I bar icon, and then keeps reverting to the direct selection tool or sometimes a disappearing + icon. It doesn't matter how long I wait or if I select the page or the pasteboard for the new text box (although I seem to have more succes on the pasteboard than on the page).. Also the direct selection key and the text tool frequently do not respond to the…

  13. Cursor - Zoom in and out/left and right on trackpad not working

    When using my trackpad on Windows 10, two fingers up and down works when editing a document. Two fingers left and right does nothing and pinching in and out doesnt zoom, it scrolls right to left. This is the same across all my adobe platforms. Everything else on my laptop scrolls accordingly on the trackpad.
    I only downloaded the adobe software last night and my laptop is brand new yesterday. All updates are up to date.

    Thank you for helping in advance.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
