  1. Placed PNG in InDesign, than export as PNG ... unfortunately the placed PNG displays as grey box.

    Placed PNG in InDesign, than exported as PNG ... unfortunately the placed PNG displays as grey box. I tested the same file and exported it as a PDF and as a JPG the placed PNG is visible. Hardware and software is up-to-date.

  2. JPG 300dpi export with horizontal lines

    When I export photo albums as JPG with the latest version, some images have horizontal lines. I've had the problem since macOS 10.14. (now catalina) and with older Indesign versions. If I change the size or position of the image, the stripes may disappear. If I use the DPI e.g. set to 301, the lines will also disappear.

  3. Jpeg exported by Indesign have wrong dimensions when combined into PDF in Acrobat

    A company needs to export Indesign documents in jpeg format. The jpeg files produced must be combined into a single PDF file. The problem is that the produced PDF does not maintain the original dimensions of the Indesign file.
    The same files opened and saved again by Photoshop, instead, produce PDFs with correct dimensions when processed by Acrobat.
    Instead of 480.00 x 330.00 mm, the file appears to have the dimensions of 1,999.99x1,374.8 mm.
    It should be noted that by exporting the files in PNG format, the problem does not occur.
    They required to export in JPEG format because they…

  11. Exporting to PNG file on network drive doesn't work

    There appears to be a bug when exporting PNG files to network mapped drives in Mac OS X 10.13.4 (Darwin) Adobe InDesign 2018 (latest version).

    This is in a domain environment using domain credentials. You export the file as PNG and it doesn't appear in the folder as expected. If I export to desktop it works fine, if I copy it from desktop to the share it copies fine. Just cannot export directly.

    Hello,
    Can you confirm the InDesign version you are using? Is it 2018.1 or 2018?
    I assume the path to which you are trying to export the PNG is /Volumes/Shares/011 Changed Information/002 Changed Information/00617 Changed Information/Changed/ ?

    Is this drive mounted via SMB?
    Is it a NAS server?

  12. beim sRGB jpg export ist Adobe RGB Profil eingebettet

    Beim Export eines sRGB-JPG's aus InDesign 2019 ist in dem Foto dann Adobe RGB-Farbraum eingebettet.
    Die Farben sind eigentlich korrekt (entsprechen dem sRGB-Farbraum), aber es ist eben fälschlicherweise das Adobe RGB-Etikett eingebettet, so dass die Farben dann falsch interpretiert werden.

  15. Exported JPG and PNG are not recognised when trying to Insert Image in Word 2011

    Indesign 12.1.0.56 on macOS Sierra 10.12.5. Exporting as jpg or png files are not recognised when I go to insert them into Word 2011 on Mac.
    However, files are recognised when:
    - exported from Indesign 12.1.0.56 x64 on PC and inserted into Word 2011 on Mac
    - exported from Mac and inserted into Word 2010 on PC
    - I had no problems when using indesign 2015 on Mac and inserting into Word 2011 on Mac.
