  1. Absatzlinie im Text sichtbar, im Absatzformat nicht

    Beim Anlegen des Dokuments habe ich Absatzformate erstellt. Das Absatzformat für Überschriften wurde mit einer grünen Absatzlinie eingerichtet.

    Nach Speichern und erneuten Öffnen des Dokuments haben die Überschriften immer noch die grüne Absatzlinie. Will ich das Absatzformat aber bearbeiten, um die Absatzlinie zu verändern, sieht es im Pannel so aus als wäre gar keine Absatzlinie gesetzt.

    Wenn ich die Absatzlinie nun erneut einrichte, haben die Überschriften im Text zwei Absatzlinien. Die grüne alte und die 'neue'.

  2. ePub

    I create very simple ePubs in Indesign CC 2018. When I export them as ePub version 3 they print perfectly from Adobe Digital Editions on a Mac but print as blank pages or spool to postscript indefinitely from Adobe Digital Editions, on a PC, in Windows. When exported in the older version ePub 2.01 they work and print fine on both Mac and Windows. So my question is: why is ePub version 3 an option from Indesign when it isn't fully supported in Adobe Digital Editions on the Windows platform most popular with the user base? Is there a solution/workaround…

  4. Modal disappearing, causing deadlock

    Sometimes the Options-Window I have to frequently use to change the baseline-grid (sic!) disappears miraculously thus disabling any input (thankfully I hit save regularly).

  6. swatches don't merge when importing paragraph styles

    When importing paragraph styles from the CC Library, the swatch colors for the styles get added to already existing swatches creating duplicates rather than merging. By the time all paragraph styles are added, there are 10+ swatches of the exact same color....

    The PANTONE 540 CP swatch, when added in InDesign, is a CMYK ‘Process’ Color swatch – it comes from the PANTONE Color Bridge Coated library. This swatch was used in a Paragraph Style and this style was added to the CC Libraries.

    You also created another swatch (a custom swatch) which has the same name – PANTONE 540 CP but it is a CMYK ‘Spot’ Color swatch. This was present in the document when the Paragraph Style (created above) was added from CC Libraries to the Paragraph Styles panel.

    When the Paragraph Style was added from CC Libraries to the Paragraph Styles panel, it found that a swatch with the name “PANTONE 540 CP” already exists in the document. Since swatches with the same name but different definitions cannot exist together in a document, it added the incoming swatch with a different name – “PANTONE 540 CP 2”…

  7. InDesign CC 2017.1 12.1.0.56 build links panel redraw issue

    InDesign CC 2017.1 12.1.0.56 build links panel redraw issue. My links palette will not display correctly, even after closing and reopening. Sometimes I can't really use it at all. The divider between the links list and links info moves up and down, but it's hard to read and I can't always select an image or mulitple images. Restarting the app, restarting my computer, seems to make no difference.

  9. alt/spacebar navigation

    WTF has happened to the alt/spacebar shortcut for navigating pages with the T tool? It's suddenly become much more sensitive to release timing, so if my finger comes off the alt button a split-second early I end up with rogue spaces in text. Never used to be a problem.

    InDesign CC 2017.1, 12.1.0.56 Build.

  11. Opened files become modified (unsaved asterisk appears) without any modification

    I'm working with file A, but I keep open the B and C files (either I didn't close those or I'm copying content from those), after some time B and C becomes modified (unsaved, the asterisk after the name appears). The Edit→Undo does not show any alteration (it's grayed).

    May it be the problem that A, B and C belongs to a Book?

  12. inverting years automatically

    inverting years
    I'm working on a book about archaeology and just noticed that in a text indesign switched years in a date before BC, It should be 1650-1050 and it switches automatically to 1050-1650, is this a bug or is it some preferences that make this happen? Thanks

  13. When i go into File- Export, only the bottom half of the Export Adobe PDF pop up is showing up on my screen.

    THe PDF export window is not showing up in its entirely on my screen. The top half is missing so I cannot change and of my settings and I cannot grab the top of the pop up to move it down the page. So I cannot submit any pages to my printer since it's not set on the printer's settings. How can I move this pop up down on my screen?

  14. Adjusting dashes and gaps on path moves dashes off path

    Opened a PDF of a line chart in Illustrator, copied/pasted into InDesign CC 13.0.1, then noticed the dashes of stroked paths didn't follow the path accurately in some places. On setting the "Corners" control to "None" those path's dashes snapped precisely to the path, but selecting any of the three Corners settings made the dashes move off the path the same amount. See attached PDF for before/after images.

  15. Hyperlinks and Email addresses not working when exporting interactive PDF from InDesign CC 13.0 x64 on windows platform.

    My department is tasked with creating 508 accessible documents. In 2017 version of InDesign, we did not have any issues exporting documents containing hyperlinks or email addresses. Now when I run the accessibility report, every one of them fail. We absolutely need to find a fix for this so that we can meet our client needs.

  16. Preferences Reset after working with a large XML based file

    I work with large XML files to create catalogs several times a month. This results in InDesign giving me a lot of "Continue without Undo" prompts anytime I do any action (even scrolling and zooming), so I save the file and quit InDesign. Upon reopening InDesign, it says that it cannot read my preference file and resets everything.

    This is extremely frustrating, as while my workspace is saved, all of the character/paragraph/object styles, swatches, and program settings are completely wiped, as are all the tool tips and notifications. Barring being able to not have this problem occur regularly, is there…

    Thank you for providing the information. Just copy the preference and try the following workflow –
    • Delete InDesign preferences
    • Copy the InDesign corrupt preferences.
    • Launch InDesign.
    • An alert would come that the preference have been reset.

    If the above workflow works with the copied preference, Zip them and mail it to santalwa@adobe.com.

    Regards

  18. Windows recents files (at opening)

    Sometimes the files are two times on the panel (same file) and sometimes is a wrong link (opening an other file the icon seems to be).
    Quit, refresh, open an other file : nothing to get the right link.
    Since the late update march 2018 ; I am on 13.1.
    Thank you for resolving idea,
    Pierre

    If you use multiple monitors and go select font in menu. The position is wrong, the menu of fonts appeared to top, but the correct position is for bottom. So view font list is very bad.
