  1. Need Alternative Launch images

    I do not think the launch images in photoshop, indesign and illustrator are culturally sensitive. They should not include any people especially not raunchy females (as in photoshops blonde superhero type) female. Who needs that in their life? It doesn't help people be happy with their own partner or spouse to have some perfect looking woman staring at them! They should be totally neutral - landscapes, nature, no people please!! I posted this as a feature request too to at least have the option to disable this launch image. Thank you for your consideration on this issue.

  2. Why does ID now need new filetype with every yearly release?

    I don't remember ID needing a new filetype with every release in the past. A (perhaps cynical) part of me says new filetypes are designed to incentivize users to upgrade. This drive for new filetypes every year seems especially capricious when fundamental new ID features are few and far between over the past 5+ years. (Ex: one of the top billed features last year was renaming Master pages to Parent pages...)

    New filetypes with every release is a source of friction to my team, especially when several users work on a project and one or more suddenly find they can…

  3. Type 1 font warning for no reason

    I am getting a warning that my document contains type 1 fonts (10 of them) when they do not (contains 4 OTF fonts).

    As far as I know, I have never used a type one font in any document on my current computer which is only a few weeks old ... Mac mini with t1 chip.

  4. custom dictionary

    We had spent a lot of money creating user dictionaries for Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu many years back. The dictionaries that worked with CC 2014 are not working now. I have tried many times and my complaints get closed. I have even given ideas of how to solve the problem, but no response. I

  6. Error converting when linking Excel data with a formula returning a blank cell (i.e. "")

    1. InDesign Version: 17.4 x64

    2. When importing data from an Excel document, an error message is received on InDesign whenever the data includes a formula which returns a blank cell (i.e. using IF formula and returning "").

    3. Expected result: All data from range is imported, regardless of whether cells are blank or not.

    4. Actual result: Error message reading: "Cannot convert document. An unknown error occurred during the conversion."

    5. Unable to upload jpeg or GIF (not supported, apparently)!

  7. InDesign 16.0 saves Converted files in last used folder, not containing folder

    On Catalina OSX (10.15.7), InDesign 2021 (16.0) saves a Converted file to the last used Finder folder, rather than the folder the document is contained in.

    Happens with 'Save As...', as well as saving InCopy assignments.

  11. InCopy Templates opening new Document with unique assignments

    This is for InCopy but it would be great to be able to save InCopy Templates that open a new Incopy document with NEW UNIQUE assignments. For example, this would allow you to make an InCopy Sign template that has locked down branding, etc but has editable text fields that can be populated by client and saved off as print pdfs for production. The client could then use the template over and over to create many signs.

  16. Buttons Reverting to Top-Most Destination

    I set up all of my buttons on different parent pages and amended pages based on parent pages, gave them all unique names and set their destinations. They worked perfectly for precisely one export to interactive PDF and then most of the buttons reverted to the top-most destination in the list when I reopened the document.

  17. Source Sans shifting down issue

    Source Sans or INDD has changed from version 17.3 to 17.4. All of the type gets baseline shifted down when you create a new file or if you open up an existing INDD file with Source Sans. It all pushes down inside the text window.

    Either an INDD problem or Source Sans coding has changed. Please resolve--its our house typeface.

  20. QR-Code Generator still Problems with Umlauts in vCards

    In the actual version of indesign (18.0) there is still an issue with internal generated vCard-QR-Code scanned by an iphone. I filed this bugs also two years ago

    In germany there are special Characters called "Umlaute" (ü, ö, ä) or the "sharp s" (ß). If these characters are used in an vCard generated within the buildin function from indesign, they are replaced with other symbols on the iPhone QR-Code-Camera Reader.

    I think this is only a Problem of the used vCard-Version. I think indesign uses Version 2.1 if you would just use Version 3.0 this issue does not appear.

    please…
