  1. Problem with Variable fonts - some glyphs are displayed with a lighter weight on changing axes.

    Some variable fonts works as expected, but for some, the font displays at a lighter weight (perhaps regular?) when the weight is set for anything heavier than about 750. It appears that the heavier weight's metrics are used.

    In my my limited test, the weight prints properly.

    I'm on a 27-inch, iMac 2020, Mac OS 13.5.1, InD 19.

  2. RTL in Indesign 2024

    I'm from Israel and use Adobe Cloud English supports Hebrew.
    In InDesign 2024 (19) I see a bug, that the alignment to RTL does not work correctly. Even documents created properly in 2023 (18) appear distorted. The Hebrew text loses its position in relation to punctuation marks, numbers and foreign letters.

  4. Footnote: Problems with Small caps when using World-Ready Paragraph Composer

    ID 23 and 24: When the Footnote Text Paragraph Style has World-Ready Paragraph Composer enabled, then there is a problem with formatting in the first line of the footnote: Starting from Footnote 10, the problem appears. When Small Caps is applied (via open type font) then the style is applied to 1 letter before the styled text range and 1 letter at the end of the text is not styled as should be. So the staling is shifted for 1 letter regarding the applied style. When the footnote number is 3 digits, then the styling is shifted by 2 letters.

  5. Indesign 2024 Unable to Recognize Variable Fonts from Documents Created with Previous Version

    InDesign 2024 (v19.0) fails to recognize variable fonts from documents created in previous version. Specifically, Helvetica Now Variable weights and widths are reported as missing. Running MacOS Sonoma (but the same system opens the file without issue when using InDesign 2023… can’t be an OS issue.)

  7. QR code clickable

    Hello. I have an idea regarding the InDesign program. It would be great if the generated QR codes in the interactive PDF were clickable. Is it possible to implement this? Currently, I manually assign hyperlinks to each QR code.

  8. # in URLs of Hyperlinks in Hyperlinks panel is substituted with %23 when opened in browser from panel

    Hi together,
    when working with hyperlinks with URL destination an URL like:

    https://wiki.selfhtml.org/wiki/HTML/Elemente/a#Siehe_auch

    will not be transferred to the browser as is when the menu command "Go to Destination" is used or if the "green" bullet in the panel is clicked that indicates a correct and connectable hyperlink destination.

    Instead character # will be substituted with %23 like that:

    https://wiki.selfhtml.org/wiki/HTML/Elemente/a%23Siehe_auch

    The implication could be two-fold:
    [1] The browser could show an 404 error
    [2] The browser could not navigate to the named anchor and the view of the page is showing the top part of the page.

    The URL above…

  9. misaligned InCopy Galley/Story cursor when World-Ready composer and inline notes are used

    The cursor in InCopy's Galley/Story view is misaligned when the underlying paragraph style specifies a "World Ready" paragraph composer AND inline notes precede the cursor in the same paragraph as the cursor.
    Steps to reproduce:
    - Launch InCopy 2023
    - Make a new document.
    - Enter text for two paragraphs.
    - Make a paragraph style for the first paragraph and specify the "Adobe World-Ready Paragraph Composer." Apply that style to the 1st paragraph.
    - Make a 2nd paragraph style based on the first, but specify the "Adobe Paragraph Composer" (i.e., NOT World-Ready). Apply that to the 2nd paragraph.
    - Insert…

  12. Variable Font (Source Sans 3) some Characters not available

    macOS Ventura 13.5.2 (22G91), InDesign 19.0
    Since the update to Indesign 2024 (or version 19.0), some letters can no longer be selected in bold or black for the variable version of the font "Source Sans 3". When adjusting the slider, they become thinner again (instead of thicker) from a weight of 600. It affects e.g. the small a, e and l, but not the i, s... etc. they are also not displayed in the glyphs. With font weights below 600 (up to and including semibold) everything works fine (variable and with font weights). This applies to both the TT-version (download)…

  13. Copying originally English text in InDesign and it's pasting as Chinese characters

    Really weird - been trying to copy and paste directly from an indesign file to external documents while sub-editing a page, and noticing it's pasting as a string of Chinese characters.

    E.g. see attached screenshot is pasting as:
    渀 倀愀爀椀猀 琀栀攀爀攀ᤠ猀 愀氀眀愀礀猀 爀漀洀愀渀挀攀 愀渀搀 栀攀爀攀 椀琀 挀愀洀攀 椀渀 愀 樀漀礀昀甀氀 挀漀氀氀愀戀漀爀愀琀椀漀渀 戀攀琀眀攀攀渀 䜀倀 ☀ 䨀 䈀愀欀攀爀 愀渀搀 椀渀琀攀爀椀漀爀 瘀椀猀椀漀渀愀爀礀 䬀椀琀 䬀攀洀瀀⸀ 䤀渀昀甀猀攀搀 眀椀琀栀 眀栀椀洀猀礀 愀渀搀 䬀椀琀ᤠ猀 琀爀愀搀攀洀愀爀欀 猀琀漀爀礀琀攀氀氀椀渀最Ⰰ 琀栀攀 挀漀氀氀攀挀琀椀漀渀 椀渀挀氀甀搀攀猀 愀 昀愀戀甀氀漀甀猀 猀攀氀攀挀琀椀漀渀 漀昀 猀欀椀渀渀礀 愀渀搀 昀愀琀 氀椀渀攀渀 猀琀爀椀瀀攀猀 瀀氀甀猀 愀 瀀爀椀渀琀攀搀 挀攀氀攀戀爀愀琀椀漀渀 漀昀 刀漀戀椀渀愀 䨀愀挀欀 挀攀爀愀洀椀挀猀

    But only into certain programmes. Pastes in English in google search or directly into a google chat, but pasted into Whatsapp desktop or a fresh email or apple notes app (etc) it pastes as Chinese characters...

    For reference, using InDesign 2023, font is Adobe Caslon Pro, language is set to UK English...

  14. InDesign Windows all over the shop

    I am currently using three screens for my work. Whenever I select a window from the menu, the flyouts appear in a hidden or hard-to-see location on any of my screens, usually in the bottom left corner. As a result, I can only see the header of the flyout, which becomes problematic when it is hidden behind other flyouts.

    In my opinion, when a window/flyout is selected from the menu, it should appear in the centre of the active screen and on top for easy visibility.

  15. Variable font not working in Indesign.

    Problem:
    Variable font not working in Indesign.
    Main problems with Monotype Helvetica Neue Variable, but sometimes others also cause problems.
    (Note: via my Myfonts I received a new font-file and installed this - same problems - so it is not the font file which is broken…)
    I discovered that the program/software/app Indesign itself is causing this problem - not only the variable function does not work any more - as soon as I try to use the variable function the whole document is not working properly: can't save, can’t undo, etc !!!
    This makes working with a variable font in…

  16. Never break a word with Thai hyphenation dictionary

    In English it is possible to add a hyphenation word to the user dictionary and if you want the word never to be hyphenated, type a tilde before its first letter. This will force the word to never break.

    However with Thai you can add the word with the tilde but InDesign will not respect that word. The word will still be broken.

  17. Stop stealing focus

    Please find a way to make InDesign stop stealing focus every time it does something. It does it 3 separate times on launch, every PDF export, and every time a file finished opening. Some files are 100MB+ and can take time to load, so sitting around waiting for it is not something people with work to do can afford to do all the time, and getting focus stolen in the middle of an email is not a good way to maintain workflow. It's unnecessary behavior, please fix it. This bug is present on 6 of 6 machines we use, spanning…

  19. Export - Jpg - Page Size - Suffix

    Love the new update where you can change the export options to include a specific Suffix, however could you remove the spaces between the sizes in the Page Size Suffix export? For example, 700 x 200 would be 700x200. This will help speed up the process in file naming as we can not have spaces in files names in any graphics for our websites.

  20. InDesign V19.1 Updated Jan 18 2024 Bug: Double click on text frame moves the frame every time

    With the new version 19.1, every time I double click on a text box to change text, after each double click the text box is moving a tiny bit. This happens every time in any document and after a program restart.
