  3. Wonky text on the Home Screen in InDesign OS Ventura

    This has been appearing since I updated to a new Mac Studio and InDesign 18.5 on OS Ventura. The text goes all weird on the Home Screen. I can't read what the document title is. There's been instances where the same file name appears twice also. It's annoying!

  4. Data Merge, CSV file containing column header named 'table'

    A CSV file with a column header named 'table' will fail to import with 'Data Merge > Select Data Source.' No errors are given. The 'Data Merge' panel remains unpopulated.

    Changing the header to something else, e.g. 'Table', will work.

    Adobe InDesign 18.5 on Windows 10 and macOS Monterey. 18.4 behaves the same way.

  8. Defined Names in .xlsx files Do Not Work When not specified in A1:Z9 format

    To Reproduce:
    - Create an excel spreadsheet
    - Create a table (example table below)
    - Name a range:
    - Insert^Name^Define Name

    - Use the default "Refers to:" (=Table1[#All])
    - Do this a second time
    - Use a specific range that is the same area (=Sheet1!$A$1:$C$11)
    - Save the file

    Attempt to Place in Adobe. Note that the second range is available for placement, the first is not. It seems that any named ranges that don't specify cells, and instead specify other placeholders (i.e. =Table1[[#All],[Description]:[Amount]]) do not work.

  9. Missing font is not displayed as missing

    When opening the file in InDesign (tested in ID17, ID18.5 and ID 19 Beta) the font is not reported as missing.
    Nor does it appear as missing under "find/replace font...".
    However, it is highlighted in pink; so ID notices that the font is missing.

    My expectation is that the missing font will also show up as missing in "Find/Replace font...".

  11. Error on Save : "Indesign is unable to save this file. We tried, but appears to be damaged."

    Just started happening with v18.5. And only with very specific files? Have a fairly simple file that I drop PDFs into. If the PDF's on the page that generates the thumbnail it'll fail. If you then resave over the same filename it'll save happily. Doesn't happen if you start from a new file, or from other more complicated files but is very replicable.

    Have tried clearing preferences.

  12. Position de l'objet et filtre N/B

    Super !
    Mais il faudrait arriver à développer un outil qui arrive à gérer les plans des objets (arrière-plant et premier plant) un peu comme dans Word ou on a une aide à la position en 3D.
    Il serait bien aussi un outil qui puisse appliquer des filtres photo rapides comme en N/B.
    Bien cordialement.

  13. System wide “Emoji & Symbols” panel is not working

    The “picker panels” of macOS and Windows are really nice to quickly get an emoji or special character. The keyboard shortcuts for both work system wide. Almost. It works in applications from Adobe on Windows but not on Mac. I do not understand why this is blocked.

  16. Opening file in Indesign 2023 will not show file window without resetting workspace layout

    When I initially startup my adobe indesign 2023 program and open a file from either the recent documents or drop down toolbar, the file window does not appear. It appears as if nothing has been opened. If I then select window > workspace > essentials (or any other saved workspace layout), the file window will appear.

    If I have a file already open and is visible, I can open an additional file and it appear. It is only when I do not have a visible file window that this occurs. Therefore, if I was to close this file window and…

  18. When adding v-Card information for generating a business card QR code - Incorrect Title for email

    When adding v-Card information for generating a business card QR code the email line comes up as work instead of email when the QR code is scanned and a window opens up on a mobile device. The category above on the form in InDesign states that the word "email" should appear above the contacts email. This is a needed fix noticed.

  20. non-breaking space creating strange character

    Non-breaking spaces have suddenly started turning into strange horizontal apostrophes in a document - see attached image, the character between Ex and Libris. The only way to rectify has been to use a fixed width non-breaking space instead. Major headache!
