  1. Footnote: Problems with Small caps when using World-Ready Paragraph Composer

    ID 23 and 24: When the Footnote Text Paragraph Style has World-Ready Paragraph Composer enabled, then there is a problem with formatting in the first line of the footnote: Starting from Footnote 10, the problem appears. When Small Caps is applied (via open type font) then the style is applied to 1 letter before the styled text range and 1 letter at the end of the text is not styled as should be. So the staling is shifted for 1 letter regarding the applied style. When the footnote number is 3 digits, then the styling is shifted by 2 letters.

  3. Stile di carattere

    Non è una nuova idea. è un bug dall'ultimo aggiornamento. Se faccio una stringa di testo e seleziono stile di carattere ad esempio corsivo, tondo chiaro ecc. selezionando la singola parola e applico lo stile influisce sull'intera strinca a differenza della precedente versione che teneva lao stile solo sul testo selezionato pur nella stressa riga.

  8. A problem about converting right-to-left text to the newest version

    Hello,
    I have been using Indesign v18.5 and created a lot of documents for a book in Hebrew and Arabic.
    My paragraph styles have the property "Character Direction: Default" which, of course, organized my text as RTL for Hebrew and Arabic, and LTR for English text.
    After converting the documents to the newest version (v19.0), some (and only some) of the punctuation marks (such as ".", "!", "?") and even some of the spaces, were placed in a wrong manner: to the right side of the text, instead of being placed to the left of the text as they are…

  10. Indesign 2024 Unable to Recognize Variable Fonts from Documents Created with Previous Version

    InDesign 2024 (v19.0) fails to recognize variable fonts from documents created in previous version. Specifically, Helvetica Now Variable weights and widths are reported as missing. Running MacOS Sonoma (but the same system opens the file without issue when using InDesign 2023… can’t be an OS issue.)

  11. Broken/missing assignments can't be deleted or fixed

    I've opened an InDesign document from earlier this year (created in an InDesign 2023 version). The document contains many incopy assignments - some of which are now missing. It will let me delete most of the missing assignments (no longer needed anyway) but a selection of them will not delete at all, and show the pencil icon that says 'in use by me' when i hover over, despite having literally just opened the file and not clicked into anything.

    This happens when any of my team open the file (we use Microsoft Share Point to access files). I can't right…

  13. PROBLEME [Lecture seule]

    Bonjour, J'ai un problème depuis les mises à jour de InDesign 2023 et 2024, presque à chaque fois que j'ouvre un fichier Indd, il s'ouvre en "Lecture seule"...
    Alors que je n'ai rien changé par rapport à avant, donc ça semble être lié à un problème lié à InDesign plutôt qu'à l'ordinateur. Je suis donc obligé très souvent soit de fermer le fichier et le rouvrir ou l'enregistrer sous une nouvelle version pour pouvoir faire des modifications... Pour info ce problème persiste sur tout types de fichier et de version InDesign...
    Pourriez-vous m'aider et avez-vous déjà eu le problème ? …

  14. Updating in InDesign does not work with add-in software.

    Updating in InDesign does not work with add-in software. This is very inconvenient as the system is updated once a year. The high cost of add-in software makes it difficult to purchase add-in software frequently. When updating InDesign, please take care to ensure that the old add-in software can be used. I am having a very difficult time. I demand improvement.

  15. RTL in Indesign 2024

    I'm from Israel and use Adobe Cloud English supports Hebrew.
    In InDesign 2024 (19) I see a bug, that the alignment to RTL does not work correctly. Even documents created properly in 2023 (18) appear distorted. The Hebrew text loses its position in relation to punctuation marks, numbers and foreign letters.

  16. Version 19.0 does not remember the document path for Save or Exporting to PDF

    Since upgrading to v19, it does not default to the path of the original opened document when saving, and Export to a PDF file does not default to the directory of the InDesign document.
    The default is you Documents folder.
    This is not the first time an upgrade has caused this behavior.
    PLEASE fix this !

    When we update from InDesign 18.5 to InDesign 19.0, the conversion of documents happen. The document is opened and the user needs to save it. We have to save the document and the same folder from where 18.5 document is opened will be seen. For export workflow without saving the document, export will point to Documents folder.

  17. Problem with Variable fonts - some glyphs are displayed with a lighter weight on changing axes.

    Some variable fonts works as expected, but for some, the font displays at a lighter weight (perhaps regular?) when the weight is set for anything heavier than about 750. It appears that the heavier weight's metrics are used.

    In my my limited test, the weight prints properly.

    I'm on a 27-inch, iMac 2020, Mac OS 13.5.1, InD 19.

  19. Variable Font (Source Sans 3) some Characters not available

    macOS Ventura 13.5.2 (22G91), InDesign 19.0
    Since the update to Indesign 2024 (or version 19.0), some letters can no longer be selected in bold or black for the variable version of the font "Source Sans 3". When adjusting the slider, they become thinner again (instead of thicker) from a weight of 600. It affects e.g. the small a, e and l, but not the i, s... etc. they are also not displayed in the glyphs. With font weights below 600 (up to and including semibold) everything works fine (variable and with font weights). This applies to both the TT-version (download)…
