  1. ctrl+[

    Version 15.1.1.

    Using CTRL + [ when the CC Libraries Window/Tab is open closes the window on the workspace instead of sending the selected object backwards. I have to manually go back to the Toolbar and check CC Libraries so it can reappear again only for it to close out again when I use CTRL + [ unless I manually click on my artboard or close out of the window first before using the shortcut. Maybe it's a shortcut that I'm unaware of, and if it is I think it's being shared with a shortcut that is used too frequently…

  2. OpenAsset extension in ID 2020 for Mac

    I installed the OpenAsset extension in my InDesign 2020 on a Mac running OS Catalina. My Exchange says that I should be able to launch it from Windows > Extensions > OpenAsset. There is no Windows menu option; under the Window option there is no Extensions submenu anymore.

    Please advise. I use this extension extensively with work.

    Thanks,

  3. MacOS Big Sur Creative Cloud Download Manager iCon not clearly visible in Apple Menu

    MacOS Big Sur Creative Cloud Download Manager iCon is barely showing up at the top of my screen. Since the top control bar in Big Sur is now transparent, I am using a black background so its quite faint. Attaching screen shot. This wasn't an issue with previous OS and had the same black background.

  5. Content log access

    If a file gets lost there is no way to check the log of the last 7 days or more.
    One can only see the 20 last used files.
    Is there a way to access the content log to check what happened to all the files worked on?

  6. InDesign still doesn't create usable PostScript file

    As reported several months ago, PostScript files created by InDesign do not open correctly in Acrobat Distiller or Illustrator or Mac's Preview.

    Problem continues with 15.1.1.

    [In my case, this need for ps would be eliminated if you restored the ability to directly export Thumbnails as a PDF!]

  8. Script/Application/JS/Place MultiPage PDF

    When you import a file with a password ID requires password for each page of document.
    I think that should be correct to insert password only for the first page.
    Thank you

  9. Outdated "Dutch 2005 reform" dictionary

  14. CC Library

    I'm trying to add colours and paragraph styles to my cc library, however, when I try to rename anything or even type within the feature nothing types and the keyboard pretty much does not work at all.

    After putting computer to "Sleep", InDesign is closed upon wakening the computer. Sometimes says "crashed" (10% of the time). Other Adobe applications are still open where left off.

  17. [BUG] Text from pdf disappears when placing a pdf

    When placing a (PitStop server certified) PDF some texts in the placed PDF disappear (on screen as well as print).
    Only happens in latests Indesign/photoshop/illustrator, older versions work fine.

    PDF has no errors or problems in Acrobat pro preflight and PitStop server.

    Confirmed by several users in community forum:
    https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign/placed-pdf-file-into-indesing-part-of-pdf-file-disappear/m-p/11258536?page=3

  19. Intraktive Felder

    Bugs in den Fomularfelder.
    Schriftgrad steht auf automatisch. Wenn daraus ein Interaktives PDF generiere wird, wird der Text beim überlaufen das Feldes nicht kleiner wie es eigentlich sein sollte, sondern der Text läuft weiter und ist dann nicht mehr zu sehen!
    So kann die neue 15.1 x64 Version nicht verwenden werden!

  20. The app.doScript () statement no longer works since version 15.1.1...

    The script that I am attaching works up to version 15.0 and does not work with the next versions (certainly with version 15.1.1). The error that returns is "Unable to load Adobe Indesign Type Library 1.0" (translated from Italian). It does not seem to me that there are incompatibilities with the app.doScript () statement that generates the error.
