  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. Organize styles per book, not per file.

    Having to synch the styles manually instead of just having the styles available throughout the book is a pain. Also I cannot synch single styles. There is an object style I use for chapter headings, the objects get displaced everytime I synch.

  4. Resizing object with 'Auto-Fit' enabled now broken in 15.1

    In version 15.0.3 and earlier, if you enabled the 'Auto-Fit' option and then resized an object by entering values in the Width or Height fields the content would resize along with the frame (as expected).

    With 15.1 this no longer works. The frame resizes but the content doesn't. Only way for 'Auto-Fit' to behave as expected is to drag the frame handles.

  5. Numpad bug with paragraph styles

    Loading an old Indesign file (version 2016 or older) in the new Version Indesign CC2020 causes a new bug.
    1.) I use Indesign CC 15.0.1 (2020)
    2) Open an old file of Indesign with many defined paragraph styles (from 2016 or older) --> try to edit some texts use text cursor klick in a textbox and type a 1, a 3 or a 4 on the numpad.
    3) I expect that the numbers 1, 3 or 4 to be typed.
    4) The paragraph style changes to another style without any shortcut set in the file or the paragraph style.
    5)…

  6. [ Versions 14 and 15 ] Adjust Layout | Liquid Page Rule "Scale" is affecting the result

    Hi together,
    as it seems feature Adjust Layout is actually affected by Liquid Page Rule.

    Two identical pages will scale type differently if Liquid Page Rule is set to "Based on Master" on one page and "Scale" on the other page.

    This seems to be a bug. Liquid Page Rule should not affect the result of Adjust Layout. Applied my test documents from my German InDesign 2020 15.0.2.310 on Windows 10:
    200206-1-Wrong-Text-Size-with-LayoutAdjustment-INDD-2020.zip

    NOTE: I renamed the zip file to .zip.txt because this site will NOT allow to attach zip files.

    Also see into this thread at Adobe InDesign Forum where…

  8. RotatedTable-BaseLineGrid-NOT-WORKING.PNG

    ( InDesign 2020 version 15.0.0.155 on Windows 10 ).

    The custom baseline grid is not working at all if a table's text frame is rotated.

    It is working with text outside a table if the frame is rotated.

  10. JavaScript appliedMaster override causes textFrame to move on X axis

    When overriding via JavaScript, the same elements (textFrames) move 0.75" to the right on the x axis!

    This does not happen when overriding master elements on a page manually - everything works as expected i.e. the textFrames don't move.

    I'm using InDesign 14.0.2 x64 on Windows 10.

  12. horizontal and vertical restrain with shift key not working.

    InDesign 19.4 will not allow me to constrain proportions when resizing a photo box. The window simply closes to re-crop the image. It does allow resizing the photo IN the box with the direct selection tool. It also will not allow me to constrain horizontally or vertically when shift-dragging any item. It also does not restrain the line tool. It also does not allow me to rebuild preferences.

  16. resize

    Just updated to Indesign 2024 (v19), and it appears the method of resizing/scaling an image or shape has changed. But for the life of me, I cannot figure out what it has changed to. Before this update, cmd-shift/drag the corner would resize an item proportionately. That doesn't work anymore. Am I missing something? Thanks in advance.

  17. Auto fit Frame Fitting Options Bugged

    As you can see in the example below the container selected is only 6 mm high if I crop it by -x amount, to have a white border around it, it does not do that consistently through all selected containers.

    With this container it crops a fraction of the actual number.

  18. Document Setup -> Adjust Layout only partially works

    I needed to blow up an A4 design to 2000mm high and the Adjust Layout (see image for settings I used) does not produce the same layout. See attached images.

  19. Tools are now blocking me from being able to close open documents in InDesign

    Since updating to the newest version: V 18.5 the tools bar is now blocking the name and the ability to close down the first document. For accessibility reasons, I need the toolbar to remain on the left without blocking access to the document.
