  1. InDesign makes incorrect QR code words and we can't decode QR codes correctly.

    Steps to Reproduce:
    1. Object->Make QR Code...
    2. Input strings "問題は日本語を正常に扱えるかどうか。".
    3. Result QR Code is incorrect.

    Actual Result:
    Sometimes, we got the wrong code in Japanese locale.

    Any Workarounds:
    Here is Japanese character strings "問題は日本語を正常に扱えるかどうか。".
    This was coded into the InDesign try and get "image1.png".
    Then, we try to decode it at ZXING decoder. Here is a decoded result (image2.png)

  2. [Copyright-Notice] Automatic Caption for images

    When creation an automatic caption for images it is possible to chose the option "Copyright" but this actually referts to the IPTC - Core "Source" (Quelle) and not the "Copyright - Notice" which is used by Adobe Stock.

    So it is not possible to automaticly use the Adobe Stock Copyright notice because InDesign seems to read the wrong MetaData field.

  3. Open Asset Plugin window keeps opening up even though I keep shutting it. It continuously interrupts my flow.

    The Open Asset plugin for Indesign continuously pops up. I don't use it. I don't want to use it. I want it to stop popping up and interrupting my workflow. If I close the window, it should stay CLOSED.

  4. Color Settings Not Sticking

    Upon updating to InDesign 2019 (14.0) my color settings are no longer retained.

    As soon as I quit the app and restart the color settings go back to "Emulate Adobe InDesign 2.0 CMS Off"

    I have reinstalled the app.
    I have wiped all settings.
    I have cleared the Adobe Color Cache folder.

  8. Cannot use restrain option or opt/command/shift to make duplicates?

    Something I have been frustrated with since CS 2019 was introduced is starting to really annoy me now. I have not been able to find how to fix the problems but basically ....
    If I draw a rule using the Line tool using 'shift' to restrain the rule to horizontal or vertical does not work, it just floats about at any angle you can think of - I just want to draw a perfect horizontal rule without having to go and edit the position markers!
    Then there's the restrain option to enlarge or reduce shapes/images etc - it no longer…

  9. Find/Change | Object | Selection | Won't change colour if in a group

    Hi. I think I might have found a bug.

    Find/Change | Object | Selection | Won't change colour if in a group.
    (It works if 'Search' is set to Document.)

    1.png
    Shows a test. I want to change the Yellow to Red.

    2.png
    Shows the top group colour not changing if 'Search | Section' is chosen

    3.png
    Shows both colours changing to Red if 'Search | Document' is chosen

    Can this be fixed please, or an option to Change Items in a group f it was a 'Feature'.

    Thanks

  10. Can't Place images after upgrading to Mac Catalina

    Just upgraded my MacBook Pro to Catalina and suddenly I'm unable to place images. When I select Place from the File menu, click on the file I want, the Open command is grayed out. The only way I can get images onto the page is by dragging them from Bridge. I'm running ID 14.0.3, the latest version.

  11. updating a placed multipage pdf

    Hello,
    When a multipage pdf is placed in InDesign, and an update of the pdf is needed, it is possible to do 'update link' in the links panel. But when 'show import options' is ON (in the 'place' window), all of the placed pages of the pdf will be replaced by page 1 of the updated pdf.
    For my opinion, if you want to update the instances of a placed pdf, the responsive pages have to be updated. At least the option must be accessible when updating the link.

  12. Activated Fonts Don't Load

    I created a graphic with Minion Pro Bold font but when I reopen the file to do more work a pop up window says I need to activate the Bold. Only when I shut down the software and reopen it after activating does the Bold font appear as originally designed. This happens over and over and seems like an unprofessional bug in the software.

  13. Choose image among several

    In CC2019 Indesign, when importing several pictures at once and trying to place them in prepared frames, the right arrow to select next image doesn't work properly (slow reaction and only shows next picture while placing cursor on next frame or displaying an image but loading an other one in the frame). Worked well in CC2018. Is this a bug and if yes, how to fix it?

  14. Preserve Image Dimensions when Relinking and "Auto-fit" options do not seem to work.

    I am using Indesign 14.0

    When I relink files, Indesign changes the scale and placement of images automatically, regardless of whether the preserve image dimensions option in the file handling box is checked or unchecked, and whether the "auto-fit" button in the tool menu is checked or uncheked.

    Preferences > File Handling > "Preserve Image Dimensions when Relinking"

  15. dublicate layer with object group

    If you dublicate a layer with a object group on it, and then ungroup (the also dublicated) objects on the new layer, they are all moved to their original layer.

    This objects should stay on the new layer!

  16. Imported CMYK JPEG files appear inverted or as negative

    Reproduced in Adobe InDesign CC 2018 and 2019 on Mac and PC

    1) Converted a PDF file to a CMYK JPEG and a RGB JPEG
    2) Import both images into InDD
    3) RGB image previews/prints correctly
    4) CMYK image previews/prints as inverted/negative

    The CMYK file opens correctly in other apps: Photoshop, Illustrator, Preview, Web Browsers, etc.

  18. InDesign randomly replaces placed images with grey boxes

    Indesign 14.0.2
    Max OS 10.13.6

    Indesign will on occasion replace all placed images in document with grey boxes.

    Issue occurs seemingly randomly when moving elements in the document.

    Issue affects all placed images in document, including .ai and .png images.

    Issue is not document-specific, although seems to affect documents containing transparency more frequently.

    Additional new images placed while issue is ongoing results in a grey box.

    Changing Display Performance settings does not resolve issue.

    Restarting InDesign resolves the issue.

  19. Links within linked Indesign files appear pixellated even if the links are updated.

    Linked images within linked Indesign files appear pixelated, even if the links are updated. It's temporarily fixed by relinking the file – but it goes back to appearing pixelated when the file is reopened. This has only happened recently and has never been a problem in the past.

  20. impossible to have high quality display with bitmaps

    With cs6 no problem. The same bitmaps files (TIFF) with CC, the display is very bad, even in high performance. Impossible to find a solution with technical assistance. Graphic designers with whom i works have the same problem. Apparently on the forums it would be a known bug. I work with windows 10.
    Two screenshot to see the difference between CS6 and CC
