  1. Can't wrap the first line of a page

    If I place an anchored image at the very start of the page, the first line does not wrap, it disappears behind the image. One solution in the forum was: Make an invisible line of 0pt. Are you kidding me?

  2. save window so small and compact

    The new version of InDesign's save window by default is small and compact. Why did it change? I work on Server's and very robust paths. it's a pain to always expand the window to just see further down a path to save.

  3. dark mode save as window

    I am in full dark mode with every item on my Mac, but when I save my work, the save dialogue box still appears as white. Please be consistent in supporting every screen in dark mode

  5. alt drag

    Alt + drag doesn't copy anymore, it only moves objects.

  6. Organize styles per book, not per file.

    Having to synch the styles manually instead of just having the styles available throughout the book is a pain. Also I cannot synch single styles. There is an object style I use for chapter headings, the objects get displaced everytime I synch.

  7. Option bar on Save and Place windows

    Since the recent update to 2021, when I save, export, or place image, the window that opens is so small and there are now options at the bottom that I don't need and the area to select a file is only big enough to see 3 or 4 files.

    Can you make this window larger so you don't have to expand the window size or hide the options every time? It gets monotonous.

  8. resize group is copying the group

    With the new CC2021 I have a group of objects. Trying to resize them not only resizes them but copies the entire group leaving the old group in place!

  10. Shift and Alt keys not working.

    This seems to happen randomly, but while working on an InDesign doc these keys will stop working and the only fix is to restart my entire laptop. This doesn't really fix anything though because the issue can happen again within minutes of starting back up.

    I use shift and alt a lot to align assets on my pages as well as duplicate certain assets. Among a bunch of other things.

    This happens across all version I use (2019, 2020 and 2021)

  11. Hi Team, InD CS -yes I know it's from the ark but I love it! It still does a great job!!

    When placing an item from Library (in this case formatted Text Boxes), what do they actually link to?
    I have them marked "lock position" but then I find them scattered all over the document (a quite long one).
    Is there any way to link them (position them) relative to a paragraph mark or some other text item on the page.

  12. Type shortcut key (t) flips back to previous tool after a second

    In InDesign 2021 (16.0) when I press t to get my text tool, the cursor changes to the text tool for about 1 second, then flips back to the previous tool it was on.
    This seems to be only with the text tool (t); I can change to other tools without a problem

  13. point scale indication

    When reducing a block of text, the point measure indicates both the original point size and the new point size. I am sure someone finds this useful, I don't.

    I'd like to be able to get Indd to forget the old size so I can adjust the point size directly and accurately again.
    If this can already be done, It is not readily apparent as to how.

  14. Coloured background in text when using other language than English

    I bought #288977103 and when I try to use any other language than US English, the text box is coloured with bright colour. Why?

  15. New Document Setting

    While setting for a new document, if i pick letter or tabloid size and then create, it wont open. I can only open a document from the "Recent" section, or the three preset sizes which are iPad Pro, Web 1920 or A4.

    But i can't really set the size i am looking for.

  16. Page Size Changes- Sometimes don't work, sometimes bug, InDesign is as confused as I am.

    I'm using InDesign 2021. I have been using the option at the bottom the Pages window ("edit page size") to change the size of my document from US Letter to A4 as I offer both sizes of printables in my shop. I noticed tonight that this sizing is being buggy. I went to change my Letter size doc to an A4 size, but A4 was already checked. The rulers confirmed my doc was in Letter. I then tried to change it, but no selections held from that menu. Finally, I just went to the "adjust layout" menu option and changed…

  17. My title text boxes have weird word spacing I can't correct

    I was happy with the last version of Indesign which I used on a non-Mac computer. My brand new uptodate version on the Mac is hopeless and I am in despair that I can't get instant help on my issue!

  19. Duplicating pages moves content

    It seems duplicating pages in Indesign 2019 or 2020 moves content around the page. This is the first time I have experienced this after opening an old file, saving it as a new file and then trying to duplicate a page. The fix I found for this is to UNTICK 'Adjust layout' in the 'Layout/Margins and Columns' dialogue box and then try duplicating the page again. This time the content should not move. Definitely an adjust layout bug.

  20. Resizing object with 'Auto-Fit' enabled now broken in 15.1

    In version 15.0.3 and earlier, if you enabled the 'Auto-Fit' option and then resized an object by entering values in the Width or Height fields the content would resize along with the frame (as expected).

    With 15.1 this no longer works. The frame resizes but the content doesn't. Only way for 'Auto-Fit' to behave as expected is to drag the frame handles.
