  1. Image Path Data Merge Is Ignored

    InDesign 19.4 for Mac (Sonoma 14.5)

    After the latest update, the data merge is not longer working properly for image files. While, in some cases, the paths to the images is correctly resolved and the images are embedded, the same data file that has worked earlier this year now creates an issue, so that images are not shown after data merge.

    Instead of using the path given in the data file, InDesign now searches for the images in the folder where the data file is, ignoring the path name in the data file.

    Moving the images into this folder works…

  3. InCopy: Notes in text shifting randomly when exported as PDF.

    InCopy version 18 and 19.

    To recreate the issue : add a note to any point of a text paragraph in InCopy and export the document as PDF. This results in the note (yellow sticky note) shifting randomly within the PDF document.

    What should happen is that the yellow sticky note should be in the area of where the note was initially anchored in InCopy, after you export it as PDF.

  4. Indesign 2024 not working with window-snapping apps

    I recently upgraded to InDesign 2024. I use BetterSnapTool to arrange my app-windows in order to have a efficient and practical workflow. But InDesign 2024 does not work with BetterSnapTool (BST) or any other window-snapping apps due to this reason I received from the BST support:
    "Unfortunately all window manager apps on macOS are affected by this, Adobe has broken their window resizing behavior in their recent updates. Their products do not respond correctly to window resizing requests using the macOS Accessibility API anymore. As of now I don't think there is anything I can do to fix this. If…

  5. misaligned InCopy Galley/Story cursor when World-Ready composer and inline notes are used

    The cursor in InCopy's Galley/Story view is misaligned when the underlying paragraph style specifies a "World Ready" paragraph composer AND inline notes precede the cursor in the same paragraph as the cursor.
    Steps to reproduce:
    - Launch InCopy 2023
    - Make a new document.
    - Enter text for two paragraphs.
    - Make a paragraph style for the first paragraph and specify the "Adobe World-Ready Paragraph Composer." Apply that style to the 1st paragraph.
    - Make a 2nd paragraph style based on the first, but specify the "Adobe Paragraph Composer" (i.e., NOT World-Ready). Apply that to the 2nd paragraph.
    - Insert…

  9. InDesign Windows all over the shop

    I am currently using three screens for my work. Whenever I select a window from the menu, the flyouts appear in a hidden or hard-to-see location on any of my screens, usually in the bottom left corner. As a result, I can only see the header of the flyout, which becomes problematic when it is hidden behind other flyouts.

    In my opinion, when a window/flyout is selected from the menu, it should appear in the centre of the active screen and on top for easy visibility.

  10. Variable font not working in Indesign.

    Problem:
    Variable font not working in Indesign.
    Main problems with Monotype Helvetica Neue Variable, but sometimes others also cause problems.
    (Note: via my Myfonts I received a new font-file and installed this - same problems - so it is not the font file which is broken…)
    I discovered that the program/software/app Indesign itself is causing this problem - not only the variable function does not work any more - as soon as I try to use the variable function the whole document is not working properly: can't save, can’t undo, etc !!!
    This makes working with a variable font in…

  11. Never break a word with Thai hyphenation dictionary

    In English it is possible to add a hyphenation word to the user dictionary and if you want the word never to be hyphenated, type a tilde before its first letter. This will force the word to never break.

    However with Thai you can add the word with the tilde but InDesign will not respect that word. The word will still be broken.

  12. Stop stealing focus

    Please find a way to make InDesign stop stealing focus every time it does something. It does it 3 separate times on launch, every PDF export, and every time a file finished opening. Some files are 100MB+ and can take time to load, so sitting around waiting for it is not something people with work to do can afford to do all the time, and getting focus stolen in the middle of an email is not a good way to maintain workflow. It's unnecessary behavior, please fix it. This bug is present on 6 of 6 machines we use, spanning…

  14. Links panel content overflow

    Since upgrading to InDesign 2024, we've encountered a persistent issue where the Links Panel becomes overwhelmed with linked assets. This overflow makes the panel difficult, if not impossible, to use effectively.

    Problem Description:
    The issue manifests when working with documents that contain a large number of unique linked assets. Upon selecting an asset (e.g., an image) within a page, the Links Panel attempts to highlight the corresponding link. However, instead of functioning as expected, the panel becomes cluttered and overflows with the document's other links, severely hindering our ability to work efficiently.

    Steps to Reproduce:

    Ensure your document contains a…

  16. InDesign HTML export writes user CSS file in wrong order, ahead of base CSS

    Since at least v18, InDesign export to HTML writes any user-designated CSS files ahead of the base, idGenerated CSS file. This means user statements are wholly or partially overwritten by the base statements.

    This has been discussed and noted in the forum since at least v18, and I thought a bug notice had been entered here but I cannot locate it.

    This fault is critical for any users trying to export to HTML and use CSS style overrrides. Problems are likely elusive and frustrating since the "wrong interaction" of the CSS order may not be apparent unless and until the…

  17. Punctuation at the end of Hebrew text is broken if there is a SHIFT+ENTER in the middle

    Punctuation character at the end of Hebrew text is "shift" to the right if a SHIFT+ENTER (line break within the same paragraph) was typed somewhere in the paragraph.

    A simple example is shown in the attached image.

    Also, in the attached Image I am using the "Adobe Hebrew" font with "Hebrew" set as Language (as can be seen in the attached images).

  19. Items jumping to front

    My team are currently having a glitch where items that have been sent to back are jumping back to the front even if the item is locked. There doesn't seem to be a pattern to this as this is happening while working elsewhere in the documents and if often only noticed once it has been PDFd. It is effecting images/text boxes and solid shapes.

  20. QR code clickable

    Hello. I have an idea regarding the InDesign program. It would be great if the generated QR codes in the interactive PDF were clickable. Is it possible to implement this? Currently, I manually assign hyperlinks to each QR code.
