  1. xml

    Version : Indesign CC 2018

    Steps to reproduce the issues :
    - create a XML file with a InDesign table and two cells (see attached file)
    - in first cell add a image
    - in second cell add a text
    - in a InDesign document, place the structure root tag in a textframe
    - import XML file in structure
    - BUG : the style in the first cell is missing (because there is a image)
    - if you doesn't place the root tag in a textframe before importing the file, the XML file is loaded correctly

  2. Data Merge - Images

    Upon upgrading from CC2017 to CC2018, I am unable to data merge images. Opened previous files and the link PDF (image of QR Code) will not display.

    I've re-installed 2017 and problem is solved.

  4. Every time there's a new update I lose all my saved templates.

    If I'm missing something I'd like to know. Otherwise, I'm tired of having to recreate these templates every time there's an update.

    IAF.

  5. Find/Change built in GREP queries not working

    InDesign says it performed the action (multiple space to single space, remove trailing whitespace, etc) but looking in the document nothing changed.

  7. splash

    Title: Splash screen/Startup Screen won't go away.

    Description: Whenever InDesign is launched by a script the splash screen stays open indefinitely.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1) Quit InDesign
    2) Make a new AppleScript, with the content:

    "tell application "Adobe InDesign CC 2017"
    launch
    end tell"

    3) Run the script

    Result: InDesign launches, but the splash screen never close

    Expected result: InDesign should launch, but the splash screen should hide, once the launch is completed.

    Closed: Fixed  ·  amaarora responded

    Hi,
    Please update InDesign to the latest version, InDesign CC 2018 (13.0) for the fix of the issue.

    -Aman

  8. You seem to have gotten rid of the 'Recent Items' workspace!!! I loved that feature!@!

    I used to love being able to quickly switch to a visual look at my recent files and then load one and it would go back to my previous workspace... Its now gone!!!! Upsetting....

  9. GREP queries not saving correctly

    I'm having a GREP issue in InDesign CC2017.1, I tried saving three different GREP queries but it saved the first one three times. I tried about three times to go back and correct the other two, but it would just remain the first GREP query. It seemed to only affect the Find field, what I saved in the Change field seemed to be fine. The only way I could get them all to save correctly was to physically go into the GREP XML files and enter my GREP query and save. I'm using OSX 10.10.5

  12. Nach Installation von Indesign ist die Tastaturbelegung vertauscht (Querty statt Quertz)

    Nach der Installation von Indesign CC ist die englische Tastatur installiert obwohl eine deutsche Installation eingestellt war. Die Funktionalitäten sind alle auf Deutsch. Leider finde ich nirgends die Einstellung, wo ich es umstellen kann. Kann mir da Jemand helfen?

  13. missing scripts after installation ID CC13.0/ID2018 Windows

    Startup scripts are no longer running after installation. The Scripts folder is empty.
    Indesign copies the folder from version 12 and creates the folder C:\Users<user>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\InDesign\Version 13.0\de_DE
    But Indesign-scripts now are saved in C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe InDesign CC 2018\Scripts
    So you have to copy the script folders by yourself.

    Need More Info  ·  Sumit Garg responded

    Hi,

    Thanks for reporting this issue. Just wanted to confirm few things:

    1) Was there some scripts present in folder C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\InDesign\Version 12.0\de_DE and these are not copied to 13.0 folder?
    2) Is your problem just limited to folder movement or you are facing the issue that your startup scripts are not running?

    Please provide more detail about the issue. Also, It would be useful if you can provide steps to reproduce the issue.

  14. "Copy Links To" option in the Links panel does not flag as a change in the document.

    Therefore, InDesign does not prompt to save the change and the document continues to link to the previous location if closed. I was able to reproduce this problem on MacOS High Sierra and Windows 10 with both InDesign CC 2017 and 2018.

  19. InDesign 2017 Froze and Will Not Shutdown or Quit

    I am using InDesign 2017 on a Dell Windows computer. I was synching/saving a document and it froze. I shut down the computer but when I reopened the computer the document was still there but I could not do anything with it. I cannot quit. I cannot use my mouse with it. It is frozen as if permanently in a state of incomplete saving at 75%. What can I do to rectify this?

    My partner cant load up her InDesignCS5.5 as part of her Master Collection.

    We've tried to reload software but don't want to keep doing it and wasting licensed uses.

    The error it generates it captured below in attachment:

    Its says entry point not be located in the dynamic link library... WORLDREADY.RPLN

    Is she missing a plug-in?

    Thanks for any assistance.
