  4. Word Import | BUG | Diacritic characters change language and formatting

    Hi together,
    if a Word docx or doc document contains text in italics that are not formatted using a character style diacritic characters will import to InDesign with:

    [1] Wrong language property. Instead of e.g. English (US) it will be Arabic
    [2] Formatting is in "Regular" and not in "Italic"

    For more details see this thread at the Adobe InDesign Forum:

  7. system prompts glitch out and bug the program

    So, sometimes when I get a prompt, that might be rare I got it once for now but still wanted to share it, so when I get a prompt sometimes, like a system prompt from Indesign like those ones that say some warning and have an ok button(basically a dialog box) so when I get a dialog box it glitches out, disappears but stays active and not clicked and thus you can't do anything in the program because the dialog is in focus so naturally until you click it all the options in the program are greyed out(almost all) including…

  9. 18.1 Workspace resets to 'essentials'

    I'm working with Indesign 18.1 (issue also has occured with other older versions).

    My custom workspace utilizes a two-screen setup, one screen for the actual layout and the other screen for all the menus/palettes etc.

    Everytime I close out of a document and reopen a new document, the custom workspace resets from my custom workspace to a generic one-screen workspace. In previous versions, that reverted workspace was 'essentials' but with 1.81 it seems to be a partially custom / nondescript workspace....most likely because I went and deleted the 'essentials' workspace here:

    /Applications/Adobe InDesign 2023/Presets/InDesign_Workspaces

    I am working with a lot…

  10. InDesign 18.1 x64 (Windows) - Problem with font Latino URW Regular Italic

    InDesign 18.1 x64 (Windows) - Downloaded Adobe Latino URW fonts from Adobe fonts site - The Regular Italic shows up as Italic in Windows fonts and Word, the others are OK. When placing Word document into InDesign, get missing font because InDesign does not recognize Latino URW Italic, it wants Latino URW Regular Italic. It is a font naming issue. After removing font, restarting computer, and reloading, problem persists.

  12. [EPV] Footnote references vanish in tables when the Adobe World-Ready Composer is applied

    Hi together,

    tested with InDesign 2020 and also with the current InDesign 2023 version 18.1.0.51 on Windows 10.

    If I apply one of the two Adobe World-Ready Composers to text in a table the footnote references in the text will vanish.
    The footnote texts themselves do not. It's just the rendering of the footnote reference numbers.

    See also this thread at Adobe InDesign Forum:

  14. I want to use the Japanese ver. InDesign with English UI.

    I don't understand why some features like Ruby Text are only available in the Japanese version. Why can't we just change the language?

    I did find a work-around to install the Japanese version and change the UI to English, but if I do that, all the hotkeys disappear like CTRL+C.

  17. Illustrator to Indesign copy bug

    Windows 10 Pro 64-bit, 22H2, fully updated
    Illustrator 27.2 + Indesign 18.1 + New douments with older content.

  20. Embed Image Blocks not supported in PublishingOnline

    Adobe Indesign CC 2023 (18.1)

    I recently wanted to create a more immersive viewing experience of my 3D designs by inserting holographic image blocks as an embed in a PublishOnline document (if you haven't seen this excellent technology you should check out "LookingGlass" https://blocks.glass/).

    While testing this out I've run into a problem with the publishing of the document. Using the "Object/Insert HTML" and pasting the Image Block's embed code:

    <div class="lkg-blocks-player" style="padding:133.333% 0 0 0;position:relative;"><iframe src="https://blocks.glass/embed/3450" frameborder="0" style="position:absolute;top:0;left:0;width:100%;height:100%;" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media; xr-spatial-tracking; accelerometer; gyroscope; magnetometer" allowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen="true" webkitallowfullscreen="true" execution-while-out-of-viewport="true" execution-while-not-rendered="true"></iframe></div>
