  1. Separation preview ink percentages wrong

    I just upgraded to the 2022 (v17) version of InDesign, and my separations preview percentages are blatantly wrong (e.g. what should have 200% ink coverage was showing up as 0% for every swatch). Even when it gave believable percentages of ink coverage, it still lagged significantly behind the 2021 (v16.4) version. My coworkers had the same issue, but when we reverted back to the prior version, we had no trouble.

  2. AdobeFnt.lst automatically reappears after deleting

    InDesign version: 15.0.2

    Suddenly (after the latest March 2020 InDesign update?) the AdobeFont.lst file created with InDesign packages automatically shows up with folder structure after deleting a package. This is really aggravating for file management. It's as if my team can't fully delete InDesign packages. This is happening with multiple InDesign files on multiple machines.

  3. InDesign CC 2018/High Sierra - Cannot package files

    Since updating to High Sierra I am not able to package files. The error message is simply "Unable to package the document. InDesign cannot access '(file name'.indd).

    I am using InDesign CC 13.0.1 on macOS High Sierra 10.13.1

    Don't know if this is of any use or not, but also if I try using my bulk packaging script, the error I get is "undefined is not an object (line 186)

  4. print dialog page size

    Since the latest version, the print dialog box no longer clearly shows when the image area exceeds the page size on the preview in the lower left. Before, the image area that would not print would be greyed. That is no longer the case.
