  3. 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.

  4. InDesign highlighted text sometimes has blanks in attribute sizes, & increase/decrease doesn't respond to blanks.

    After we highlight text, InDesign many times shows blanks in some of the attribute sizes. Sometimes with highlighted text all the sizes do show, but often with highlighted text the sizes are blank for some of the attributes we want to adjust. I can't figure out how to avoid this. Many, many times, highlighted text shows blanks. It's a regular occurrence. Further, with the blanks, the increase/decrease tabs (the small up/down arrows) don't work. This causes a big waste of time, repeatedly, as we highlight text. So we have to un-highlight the text. Look back at the attribute size, remember…

  7. None of my windows float in when I open Indesign version 15.1.1

    The app is running, but none of my windows float in when I open my file.
    I can't access any of my tools, pages, or layers... This is the only thing I'm able to see which is only my document. But I can't work without the tools! How can I fix this issue? I already tried restarting my computer, uninstalling and re-installing Indesign 15.1.1 and nothing has worked.

  9. proportional scaling

    When I click and drag to re-size a text box or picture box, the proportions are constrained even though I'm NOT holding shift, and the lock button next to width and height is NOT selected.

    Just started today. I've shut down and re-started my computer. I've closed and re-opened InDesign. I've downloaded the most recent update for InDesign.

  11. Text margins don't change when master pages are applied

    Version: InDesign CC2019
    Steps to reproduce: Apply a new Master page, with different margins, to a document page with text frame
    Expected result: Text frame should resize to fit the new margins of the master page (as before with Layout Adjustment enabled)
    Actual result: Page margins change but text frame stays the same. Useless! I have to manually adjust the text block to fit the new margins.

    I work in book publishing. When laying out a book, it's often necessary to make changes to the margins of certain pages, either to accommodate the dropped opening of a chapter, or to…

  13. [ Versions 14 and 15 ] Adjust Layout | Liquid Page Rule "Scale" is affecting the result

    Hi together,
    as it seems feature Adjust Layout is actually affected by Liquid Page Rule.

    Two identical pages will scale type differently if Liquid Page Rule is set to "Based on Master" on one page and "Scale" on the other page.

    This seems to be a bug. Liquid Page Rule should not affect the result of Adjust Layout. Applied my test documents from my German InDesign 2020 15.0.2.310 on Windows 10:
    200206-1-Wrong-Text-Size-with-LayoutAdjustment-INDD-2020.zip

    NOTE: I renamed the zip file to .zip.txt because this site will NOT allow to attach zip files.

    Also see into this thread at Adobe InDesign Forum where…

  14. Footnotes Issue

    Dear Sir or Madame,

    since the automatic End-/footnotes have been implemented in indesign we have critical issues working with the program.
    We are a publishing company with several designers and do also publications with different languages (CC2014 was the last version, which worked without problems, as there have not yet been automatic footnotes).
    If we have a publication/book with two or more languages we work with different layers in indesign – for each language one layer. The problem starts, when we have also footnotes to work with. After finishing the layout in the first language, we have to duplicate the…

  15. "Balance Ragged Lines" does nothing

    When activating it on the Paragraph panel or in the Paragraph styles, there's no change in the paragraph at all.

    I'm using MacOS 10.15.4 (19E287), and the latest version of InDesign 15.0.2.

  16. Font list on wrong side of scree

    Hi all. I have no idea what happened. I have Indesign 15.0.2 x64.
    I have been working in Indesign daily and this morning, all of the sudden things seem all jacked.

    Mainly, which I cannot figure out, the font list for years has been on the left hand side of the screen when working with the text tool. Today it is on the right side of the tool bar. I reset to my preferred workspace, nada. I selected Essentials Classic and same.

    What happened and how do I put it back? Essentials Classic should not have a different layout. InDesign…

  17. ruler guide disappears when deselecting

    When dragging a new ruler guide, it disappears after deselecting it. This only occurs when you've placed it on a major gridline.
