  1. indesign for mac pauses

    InDesign CC 15.1.2 with a VPN connection to a server continually gives me the spinning beach ball whenever I do the simplest thing, even when the document itself is on the desktop (but has to be connected to images on the server). It's on a Macbook Pro 15,1, running Catalina with 32GB ram, 2.6Ghz 6-Core Intel Core i7. It's been happening since the last 2 updates.

  10. Textskalierung mit shortcut und mouse funktioniert nicht mehr


    • InDesign 14.0.3.


    • Textrahmen mit Text aktivieren, gedrückten Taste (cmd und alt soweit ich mich noch erinnere), mit Maus Textrahmen Ecke anfassen und ziehen um zu skalieren
      -> Das ging früher, ist aber seit einigen Versionen nicht mehr verfügbar oder verändert. Ich finde es nicht mehr und auch keinen Hinweis darauf, wo es jetzt ist

  11. I can't change dictionary settings from German

    Hi – I have tried to change my (inherited) document spelling several ways to English (UK). It's saying in the all the right places that it's English (UK) but then when I spell check the document it's showing German 2006 reform. Can anyone help me change it, or is it a bug? Thank you.

  13. Incopy with Conditional text not holding

    I design electrical manuals in InDesign, some text is shared between books using InCopy. Some of the text is product specific so I use Conditions to turn that text off and on. But when I create the Condition in one book and then open the book with shared InCopy links, that text and everything after it is now that same Condition.
    I tried everything to fix this. The only workaround I found to work is making the Paragraph Return before the text I want Conditioned and leaving the Paragraph return after my text Unconditional will work.

  16. Update unavailable

    InDesign 15.1.2 was released several days ago but it does not show up in Creative Cloud 5.2.1.441, and I have no way to update ID. As of today, there is also an update 15.1.2 for InCopy, and that doesn't show up either. Running macOS 10.13.6.

  18. Getting missing font warning when trying to delete a page - won't delete page!

    I am trying to DELETE a page and get a missing font warning - when I agree to update fonts and agree to "do you want to continue updating numbering?" it cycles back to the same warning, and won't delete the page. Over and over again. The font is Avenir, which some people are apparently having problems with, but I just want to delete a page before exporting to pdf.!! help!! I've tried opening and closing InDesign, fixing the file separately and in Book mode, nothing works....have a deadline NOW.

  19. When I base a new master page on another, and then override any one element in the new master, the keyboard on my Mac quits working

    In Indesign (15.1.1), when I base a new master on another, and then override any one element in the new master, the keyboard on my Mac (OS 10.14.6) stops working. It stops working in InDesign--either I get nothing or I get random zooms and other oddities, unrelated to the keystrokes--and it stops working in every other program as well until I reboot.

  20. "Synchronization completed successfully..." message shows up even if AppleScript's user interaction preferences set to "never interact"

    When synchronizing a book via AppleScript, the "Synchronization completed successfully..." dialog shows up even if the user interaction script preferences are set to "never interact".

    Yes, this message has the "Don't show again" option. However, it's still a bug - because the dialog shouldn't show up at all when user interaction is suppressed.

    On new installations of InDesign or new machine, this message always causes confusion to end users. It means that running the script for the first time will always fail. Users get upset.

    Hope it can be fixed! No dialogs should show up when user interaction is disabled…
