  3. Adjust layout without resizing anchored objects

    With the Adjust Layout feature activated, if I resize the margins of a page or apply a master page with different margins, anchored objects on the page end up getting resized. I have even had some anchored objects disappear completely (although the anchors are still there). I want to be able to adjust the main text frame on a page to the new margins WITHOUT changing the anchored objects, which are part of the text flow and should not be changed.

    For example, in designing a book, I want to apply a certain master page to pages with chapter headings.…

  7. Pasteboard settings are broken

    Adjusting the pasteboard size between pages is broken - see screenshot, I've set it to zero and still each page is miles apart. Sick and tired of these endless bugs.

  9. Indesign 16. Problema con sangrías de texto y objetos con contorneo

    Cuando una caja de texto o imagen con contorneo mueve texto sangríado (en el ejemplo, sangría en la primera línea) la sangría de la primera línea desaparece.
    Ver en la muestra los ejemplos correctos dentro del circulo superior y los 2 inferiores en los que la sangría no se muestra correctamente debido a la caja de imagen con contorneo que se ve a la izquierda.

  10. I work with book interiors. Have been reading about the nightmares designers have had adjusting the margins of text boxes

    I am not a cool millennial but I work with book interiors. Have been reading about the nightmares designers have had adjusting the margins of text boxes once there are several hundred pages and changing the master pages doesn't alter the actual position of the text boxes. Can I agree with the comments attached below -- to you Adobe company people -- don't **** off loyal users who were using Adobe before the millenials were born -- PLEASE STOP taking away features!!!!! I have recently updated to ID2021. Am I still going to have this bug -- as I now…

  11. text wrap

    InDesign 16.1v64
    Text Wrap controls behave different with transformed objects.
    At first I was going to report this as a bug and saw one other post where they were having the same issue but then I realized what is really going on so I'm making a suggestion.
    Look at the Text Wrap for an Image object with the controls unlinked.
    I was seeing the bottom control affecting the right side. And the Right side control affecting another side.
    After some research I realized this was only happening on the images I'd imported and rotated 90 degrees.
    Say there are two…

  12. Extend conditional text

    Conditional text is a nice feature, but only applies to text parts or paragraph. It can be used to show/hide images and tables in flow text, but it also be nice to hide single rows in a table being marked as conditional.

  14. double spaces

    I write a lot in InDesign because i layout in the same time. When writing an rewriting there is often a problem with double spaces since you change and move text. The software tells you when words are used twice but not spaces. That would be of great help because they are difficult to recognice!

  15. Layout adjust badly deforms vector graphics

    Vector images pasted from Illustrator (without any raster effect added) become badly deformed when using Layout Adjust. Parts of the image may become bloated, extended, compressed, text is deformed, rectangles become squares; circles, ovals, parts shift, etc. In short, a total mess

  16. Restore apps bar on the top

    The current ID version is much worse then CS 5.5. You took the options from the apps bar on the top. And now I have to click and click and click to set the option (textframe optionpns, frame options and so on) and I am very angry about that. Please, let them come back. I want to set what I want with one click, like before.

  17. Drop down menu

    The drop down menus are not responding when I hover over. I'm using InDesign 2021 16.01 and have recently updated to OS Big Sur, this is when the issues began.

  18. bug: empty textbox

    InDesign 16.1 x64, Windows 10

    InDesign wraps text incorrectly when layout adjustments are made. Empty text frames occur. Only when the size of the text frames is changed, they are filled with text again.

  19. Shortcut duplicate is still not working under BigSur on MacBook Air (M1)

    This is a very often used shortcut, so it is quite uncomfortable to work without. When will it be fixed?
