  1. Unable to print using Separations with trap Application Built In

    When sending a 2+ color job with trap to RIP via Indesign, I keep getting "Printing Error: The Adobe Print Engine has failed to output your data due to an unknown problem." This seems to be an issue with the last 3 versions, along with the updates. I've uninstalled print drivers and reinstalled. Deleted cache files. For a short time I was able to print using an older version on Id but its no longer and option. My coworker who is on Mac has no problem printing with trap. Not sure what's going on. I contacted Adobe when the problem…

  2. Book file issue

    Using ID 17.0.01 x64 on Windows 11, when closing all files, but not the .indb file, the files disappear and and screen reverts to the opening screen. Under Window, the book file appears and when clicking on it, the book file shows up in the upper left hand corner of the screen. Not where I put it at the top of the right panel. Plus, it shows the last file closed wasn't saved in the book.
    Previously, the book file remained open, visible where I placed it, and the files were saved and showing saved.

  5. On master page spread, items get applied to the wrong page

    Say I have a two-page master, with facing pages turned on.
    And say I have a rectangle spanning the top edge of my left page, and say the right page is empty.

    When I apply this master to a right sided page (thus using only the right side master), the left rectangle will be rendered onto the left page, even though it shouldn't (as the rectangle belongs to the left handed master, which isn't applied).

    This happens when the rectangle is touching the spine, and it's probably rendered by indesign as being part of the right master.
    This happens even…

  6. 17.0.1 crashes adding links

    Every time I try to add or change a link in the links panel, InDesign crashes.

    I restart InDesign and it tells my my file might be damaged. Do I still want to open it.

    I open it. All seems ok. Try to change a link again, and InDesign crashes.

    This is so frustrating!!

    INDD 2019 v14.0.2 x64.

    I have an INDD book. I export the book to PDF and everything is fine. I export it to ePub and many things go wrong:

    (2) Certain characters are missing and not rendered - for example ḷ, ṇ, ṃ, ṭ, etc.
    (3) Footnote hyperlinks are no longer working.
    (4) ToC hyperlinks are not working.

    I attach both PDF and ePub files. System doesn't let me attach epub or zip files si I renamed epub file to "Udana-Master-epub.pdf" - please change file…

  8. Fonts defined in existing Paragraph / Character Styles Missing after Creative Cloud font type change

    VERSION: InDesign 2022 V 17.0.1

    We activated the Museo Sans Rounded font via Creative Cloud and have used it in our documents since 2015. Until recently, the font activated by CC had a font type of OpenType Type 1. This font is still available on CC, but its font type appears to have changed to OpenType True Type.

    Documents that used the OpenType Type 1 font in a Paragraph or Character style now show this font as missing. The missing font name now displays as Museo Sans Rounded (OTF) in Find / Replace fonts and Paragraph and Character Styles panels.…

  9. object style override plus-sign when multiple elements selected

    Object style made. Works fine.
    Multiple items on page need same style. When applied to ONE item, styles menu looks "normal." When applied to multiple items, with items selected, the styles menu shows plus-sign after style name.
    All of "clear overrides" options tried. Does not fix. Cannot verify that use of style is correct if styles panel gives false feedback.
    In the past, earlier versions, I don't remember ever seeing this apparent conflict.

  10. multiple files not placing correctly when multi-page pdf is present

    when placing multiple PDF files, after placing a multi-page PDF, the next file in sequence is skipped.

    InDesign v 17.0.1

    to reproduce:
    - open place dialogue and select multiple files from same folder (with options)
    - apply options for 'all' pages
    - place the sequence

    We would expect all pages of all files to place.

    Instead, some files are not placed but remain in the links window without a selectable link on the page.

    In the screenshot you can see that after each multi-page PDF the following file is not loaded into the placegun.

  12. Packaging without fonts folder

    I use Adobe InDesign 17.0.1 versionin Windows. I had to reinstall the program because of my device is new. My problem is during packaging. I use my own font (not an Adobe font) and I have permission to use it. The font family has installed on my device, but the fonts folder is still missing from the final folder after packaging. 'Copy font' is selected during packaging.

  15. Variable font issues when exporting to PDF

    The "%" sign is showing an issue when I export to PDF. The font works with all other programs and the creators of the font have verified it is made to specification, but InDesign PDF export has an issue with it.

  16. Display bug – garbled font randomly show up

    Font display bug – garbled font weirdness

    InDesign 16.4 on macOS Big Sur 11.5.1

    When flipping through pages I get this strange font display issue. See screenshots.
    It happens randomly. Not on every page but at least once every 10 pages.

    I can simply turn preview on and off or go to the next page and back to make the page behove normally again but this should not be necessary.

    This happens with all fonts.
    This happens every day.
    This happens on my colleagues computers as well. They are running various versions of indesign of various version of MacOS.
    This…

  17. Missing or Damaged Links in 17.0.1

    Just opened file created two years ago in InDesign. Links panel shows links ok, but pages show gray rectangles. Replacing the link seems to help, except if the link is a PDF. Those are not working at all. They show up on screen as pixelated, even at high screen resolution setting; but print as gray rectangles.

  18. Missing highlight, replace, and strikethrough in browser

    Highlight, replace text, and strikethrough are missing from Chrome browser. It works in Firefox and Safari. I don't want to force my clients to use a certain browser. I'm using: macOS 10.15.7, ID 2022 (17.0.1), Chrome 97.x, Firefox 95.0.2 and Safari 15.2.
    I see this issue has come up for others as well but never really resolved. Please help.

  19. Notes anchor marks are rendered incorrectly

    When I place a note, it affects the text box as it's rendered as a normal character.
    That is - it affects the leading, the spacing, the alignment, etc.

    For instance, if I have a top-aligned text box with a paragraph with letter size 9pt, and I place a note somewhere in the paragraph - the entire paragraph will shift downward - as the alignment takes the top of the note anchor as the topmost "pixel" in the text box.

    There is no way this is desirable. Who would want notes to affect their document layout? So I have to…

  20. Document grid hiding guides

    When unchecking "Grids in back" in preferences>grids, the document grid hides all guides that are places on it.

    That is, if for instance I place a ruler guide at the 2mm mark, and it happens to fall on the document grid (or its subdivisions), it will not show.

    That is even when the guides are in a different color.

    This is extremely problematic, especially in cases where I want to have an image/solid color as a background for my spread, and I want to make use of the document grid and also specially placed guides.

    Please fix this, or at…
