  1. adjust layout default

    Make the "Adjust Layout" option in adjust margins and columns window NOT the default. It breaks your layouts, overflows text boxes, and it is super annoying to have to uncheck it every single time. It's an extra un-necessary click, and something easy to miss when working quickly.

  3. Pasteboard not centered in layout view

    I'm not sure if this is the right bug category, but when trying to view spreads, no matter what view option I pick, the pasteboard is aligned right only, with lots of extra room on the left. If I scroll all the way left, the left edge of the pasteboard is about in the middle of the view area and if I scroll all the way right, nothing past the right edge of the pasteboard is visible. It should be the other way around if not centered, because at least then, all my tool panels wouldn't cover up what I…

  4. overriding styles

    1. Apply a style to some text.

    2. Make some change to this paragraph which changes the layout of the paragraph in some way. For example apply a first line indent different from the one in the original definition.

    3. Now remove the override (I always do this from the paragraph styles panel).

    4. The override is indeed removed, but the paragraph doesn't redraw, and it's unreadable until I page up/ page down, which forces the redraw. This certainly isn't the end of the world, but it would all run a lot faster if this didn't happen. :)

    ON SWEDISH... OM FÖRBÄTTRING I INDESIGN CC 2019 med flera versioner...
    Jag skulle vilja att ni i Indesign skapade möjligheter att spara olika inställningar i en lista, på olika skuggor jag gör för bildramar och bokstavs skuggor. Nu finns inget sådant! ....Torgny

  6. Import incorrect frame size

    When importing images into indesign I am experiencing a random bug on several different documents - when importing the image normally fits to the frame but in this bug it creates a random sized frame that is bigger than the image which stops me placing things the size I want them.

  7. Master page bug

    When I try to adjust a master page in Indesign cc2019 (14.0.1) it makes a real mess. It used to be that if I had, for instance, a master page with a 6p margin on all sides and including threaded text boxes across the spread, if I changed the outer margin to 7p instead, the text box would automatically fit the new space. Now, the text box box turned into a very tiny box in the inner margin that has no relation to the margins I have set. In addition, other boxes on the page which are not part of…

  8. Edges of images not showing

    Edges of images (usually around a few mm) are randomly not showing in various documents, I have to nudge the image to make it appear - switching between display performance modes sometimes makes it display correctly, sometimes not. This has only been the case since the 2019 update.

  10. Margins – Irrelevant error message

    CC2019 14.0.1 MacOS
    If I have a custom size page in the document (with it's own custom margins), that is smaller than the documents default margins – I get an error message every time I make InD active.

    To repoduce:
    -Make new document – A4 with 20 mm margins
    -Add one page
    -Change margins on new page to 0 mm
    -Change with of new page to 10 mm width
    -Hide InDesign
    -Reactivate InDesign – Error message shown

  11. Can't add extra space before a styled paragraph

    I need to add a few points of space before a styled paragraph to base align two columns. I add them in the paragraph box, but nothing happens and then the amount reverts to the original amount. How can I override? Never had this problem with previous versions of ID; I'm using the newest one.
