  1. Latest InDesign closes all open projects when closing one.

    InDesign v 14.0.3
    Open multiple files, ie editing two projects
    Make changes to one and not the other
    Quit the one with NO changes
    InDesign quits all files including the one that has changes without saving it first

  2. 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.

  3. font cache

    Fonts in Document fonts folder are not removeable anymore.
    I’m a typedesigner and check fonts by generating them into a Document fonts folder. In the past the fonts were always at once updated in Indesign, when I overwrote the fontfile. This does not work anymore.
    What is worse. A font that I generated into the folder is still visible in the font menue of the document, and I can still select and use it, even if the file does not exist anymore on the computer. It only disappears if I cut the internet. So it seems the font is stored…

  6. Interactive Buttons "go to destination" stop at page 114

    Hi,
    i cannot select more than 114 pages as a destination of an interactive button in a document with a total of 120 pages. I can't see why that's not possible, so this must be a bug?

  11. 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.

  12. Corrupt overlay palette window -- stretched and can't be closed

    The overlay palette window is ever-present when I open InDesign. Every time I close it from the 'window's dropdown (as it is to wide to find the X close window icon, it just keeps reopening? It is too wide to fit on the screen, and the text in the panel is pixelated. I have tried docking it to other windows to contain it, but it corrupts those too. Anyone else had this problem?

  13. 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.

  15. Keyboard shortcut no longer works after CC2014 - always works before this version

    Assigning a keyboard shortcut to 'Baseline options' does not work from CC2015 onwards. (CS3 to CC2014 assigning a shortcut does work).

    If you go to 'Edit > Keyboard shortcuts > Product Area: Object Menu > Baseline Options' and add a keyboard shortcut for this, it does not work from CC2015 onwards no matter what key combination you use for the shortcut. However, CC2014 downwards it always works.

  17. Running head containing forced line break inserts space incorrectly

    When a Running Head text variable is generated, under certain (common) conditions, a double-space is inserted where a forced linebreak is used.

    To reproduce bug:

    1. Insert a Running Head text variable into a master page running head position.

    2. Specify the first instance of, say, Level-One paragraph style.

    3. In a multi-page text flow, insert a Level-One styled paragraph with enough text to force a line wrap.

    4. Within the Level-One paragraph, insert a Forced Line Break (FLB) character.

    5. Scroll text back and forth to force update of the text variable display.

    Result: On the page containing the…

  18. Aperçu des séparations - COULEUR REPERAGE

    Bonjour
    Dans la palette Aperçu des Séparation, il faudrait une coche pour masquer ou afficher les objet utilisant la teinte repérage.
    En effet il est très difficile de vérifier si un document contient accidentellement une teinte non désirée, car la teinte repérage peux masquer certains détails, comme par exemple un petit objet jaune quadri dans un document imprimé contenant plusieurs tons directs dont le jaune P109.
    Cordialement

  20. Easier automatic page numbering

    Make it easier to create automatic page numbering in InDesign. I would not have remembered to select the text frame, then navigate to TYPE > INSERT SPECIAL CHARACTERS > MARKERS > CURRENT PAGE NUMBER if it weren't for Google. This feature should not be an obscure tool, and should not be buried in panels. I feel like this feature should at least be in the Master Page Panel's drop down options (from the hamburger).
