  1. Tab Palette

    The magnet in the Tab Palette goes to the beginning of the text field. When the text field is too large, it should be able to go to the beginning of the selected text when the text field does not fit on the screen.

  2. Indesign UI scaling

    Indesign UI scaling on a high DPi screen is poor and needs fixing asap. I am using a Dell XPS 13 9300 with a 4k display. Version of Indesign is 15.11. Even with UI scaling set to high, the UI is unacceptably small - too small to any kind of work. Other apps seem ok. WIndows display settings set to 300%, which is sufficient for basically everything except Indesign

  3. CEPHtmlEngine Helper

    macOS Catalina 10.15.5. and InDesign. 15.1.1.

    Massive problem with CEPHtmlEngine Helper. After a while, my MacBook Pro fan is running high and in the activity window, CEPHtmlEngine Helper is running between 90 and 100%. It is no fun to work with a system that runs crazy.
    Why? Solution needed.

  4. Auto-activate fonts tries to activate a font that doesn't exist, forever

    With the new auto-activation of fonts, my InDesign seems to try to activate 'Bureau Grot', which so far as I can tell, isn't an Adobe font. Does it constantly in the background and there's no way to cancel it/tell it it's barking up the wrong tree...

  5. rectangle frame tool

    The large X in the frame has disappeared when using the rectangular frame tool. Is this a preference issue or a change to the basic functionality of InDesign? I would really like to be able to use it again. It made my work a lot easier.

  6. graphic frame corners not rounding in publish online document

    operating system: Catalina (latest update 10.15.5)
    Have generated online published file in both 2019 and 2020 Indesign

    
To obtain evenly rounded corners on tables in my document I copied the table into a graphic frame and then rounded the corners of the frame. This renders fine when I create a pdf but for some reason when I generate an online publication from indesign one side of the graphic frame edges aren't rounded anymore. The rounding issue only happens with these graphic frames, objects with rounded edges render just fine.

    See images for examples of what it should look like and…

  7. missing links in books

    When printing or exporting books to pdf InDesign tells me where to find text overflows. But missing or changed links are only mentioned as "there is a missing link somewhere in this document".
    So please tell me where is this missing link.

  8. Kerning (spacing) issue with small caps active

    There's an annoying issue with kerning (or in general with characters spacing) on characters without small caps when small caps is active on preceding characters.
    This appens randomly on a full text document but seems always with text imported from Word.
    The strange thing is that if I deactivate small caps from only a white space before the badly spaced text, the problem disappear. Likewise if I deactivate small caps from preceding word but keep it in the white space before the badly spaced text, the problem disappear again. However if I deactivate small caps from preceding text, keeping it…

  9. Either the file does not exist... ERROR

    I've noticed a pattern when clicking on one of my recent file icons... I use two different cloud storage platforms, Dropbox and Sync. Both services are accessed from local folders on the same external hard drive. When trying to open one of the recent DROPBOX files from the Recent start page, I get the dreaded 'Either the file does not exist...' error.

    BUT, when I follow the same process with one of the SYNC files, it opens with no issues.

    ALSO, I can open files from EITHER service using the File > Open Recent method.

    So... could the problem somehow…

  10. Share for Review: Image Quality

    Can we have an option where Share > Share for Review has a high-quality view as opposed to the low-res preview (see file attached- Review (left) and Original (right)) please?

    Share for Review is to quickly share a design that is still a work-in-progress with the Reviewer(s) for quick feedback. Since the review opens in a browser for the reviewer, it has to load quickly even on slow networks, that’s why the image quality has been kept low deliberately so that the page loads quickly without long wait times. Using high-res views will slow down the loading of pages in the browser considerably, marring the experience.

    Hope this helps.

  12. Share for Review SYNC Broken

    I use "Share" > "Share for Review" on a Program for review by multiple departments for edits. I received notifications of over 200 edits, but upon opening the InDesign file to begin changes, the "Window" > "Comments" > "Review" Panel data is empty and again says "Create Review".

    So the connection from my online review and the source InDesign is broken. Additionally, there is no option to save that online version as a pdf to import the comments via that option in "Window" > "Comments" > "PDF Comments"

    After doing a Share for Review, if you Close the document without Saving it, the review link is not present in the document, that’s why when you reopen it, the Review panel is empty and says ‘Create Review’.

    So, the way Share for Review works is like this:
    - If you are opening an already saved document and sharing it for review, after doing the share for review, the document becomes dirty, so Save it before Closing it. Otherwise, let the document remain open. Once you receive notifications of comments, open the document to see all the comments in Review panel.

    - If you are creating a new document, making your designs and sharing it for review and you keep the document open, the comments made by reviewers are visible in the Review panel.

  13. automatic page numbering

    InDesign 2020 - I can no longer get automatic page numbers. When I insert special characters>marks>current page number on the master page, it inserts two 'ss' and won't insert an 'A' for the page number? I have copied an automatic page number from an old file and pasted it into this new one I'm working on, and it works OK. Has anyone else got any experience of this? What's your work around or solution?

  14. MacOS Save As dialog box bugs: escape key not closing, file name highlight bug

    Escape key no longer closes Save As dialog box (macOS Catalina, InDesign 15.1.1), AND file name is no longer highlighted correctly -- it either isn't highlighted at all, or incorrectly includes the extension.

    This behavior is different from 20+ years of using Adobe products. Please Fix!!

    Escape key DOES close the Export dialog box, so it is OBVIOUSLY a bug. Else, why would it be designed inconsistent behavior, hmm?! (looking at you, UX team)

    When placing a (PitStop server certified) PDF some texts in the placed PDF disappear (on screen as well as print).

  16. [bug] UI won’t show up although app seems to have launched successfully

    macOS Catalina 10.15.5
    MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019)

    Nothing appears when I create a new document or open one. The app seems to be working though because it keeps adding a numeric increment every time I create a new file. InDesign is updated to latest build. Please advise.
