          Jag skulle vilja att ni i Indesign skapade möjligheter att spara olika inställningar i en lista, på olika skuggor jag gör för bildramar och bokstavs skuggor. Nu finns inget sådant! ....Torgny

          • InDesign not opening after loading box

            InDesign 2019 doesn't open after the first loading box on startup. I downloaded 2018, 2017 and 2015. 2015 is the only one that works at the moment but the others have the same issue.
            My computers processor is Intel Pentium 1.5 GHz
            I've attached the crash report.

                • Swatches should show text colour when character style is applied

                  When a GREP Style applies a character style that includes a colour change the Swatches panel and the Fill in the Control Panel do not show the applied swatch. The swatch shown is for the base style without the GREP Style applied.

                  In the attaches screen shot the green text is affected by a GREP Style. As you can see the Swatches panel shows the text is black, not the applies swatch.

                  • Indesign Beach Balling on Mac

                    We have a 2017 iMac that is running High Sierra 10.13.6 with InDesign 14.0.1 and with working on a US Letter sized document with a text box with a single line of type, and one placed image, we get beach balling.

                    First open the document, can do anything we want (from typing new text or moving the picture box on the page, to even selecting a menu item) for about 30 seconds to a minute. After that, the beach balling starts. Then it seems to freeze for about 30 seconds to a minute, and then we can do ONE thing…

                    • Swatches panel not displaying correctly

                      My swatches panel is not displaying correctly. In order to view my current swatches, I have to extend the width of the panel. When the swatch panel is the same width as the other panels, the swatches are completely hidden. Also missing at any size are the buttons for new swatch, delete swatch, etc. These buttons appear on other panels but not swatches. Quitting InDesign and rebooting my computer did not resolve the issue.

                      • Profiles conversion doesn't work anymore with InDesign export PDF

                        Hello,
                        Sorry for my approximative english.
                        It's no longer possible to do high-res PDF export from InDesign because it doesn't convert color profiles correctly (it seems InDesign consider there is no profil on imported documents). Same conversions works fine on Photoshop.
                        We use InDesign CC 14.0.1 and joboptions we made (PDF/X-1a:2001 - Acrobat 4 (PDF 1.3) - convert to destination : ISO Coated V2) with Bridge coordination.
                        We're a big french comic books publisher and it's a very important problem for our workflow.
                        It's like a bug, I try some things I found on forums, but nothing works (delete all…

                        • How to clear round corner options

                          Recently I have set-up a corner options to drag rectangles with a specific round corner. Now I want to drag regular rectangles, with no round corners anymore. But when drag new rectangles they all have round corners.

                          Note that I have already set the corner option to 0 in the Corner options panel (Object menu). But nothing changes.
                          Can somebody help me ?

                          • Import incorrect frame size

                            When importing images into indesign I am experiencing a random bug on several different documents - when importing the image normally fits to the frame but in this bug it creates a random sized frame that is bigger than the image which stops me placing things the size I want them.

                            • Invisible character

                              Apply all Auto Edits inserts an invisible character before which then interferes with Find and Replace. When pasted into a GREP search, it looks like ~I, but can't be found. It can be manually removed, but this is not helpful, as I need to be able to perform a comprehensive Find/Replace.

                                • Keyboard shortcuts to change case not working on Windows

                                  Keyboard shortcuts to change case of lines of text is no longer working. Apart from Alt-T to get up the text menu, I'm now having to use the mouse to select the further options to change to Title case. The sequence Alt-T-E-T, no longer works. As I frequently have many entries which need unifying each time I use it, this once useful feature is sorely missing. Please can you fix it Adobe?

                                      • PDF Hyphenation Bug when line has cross-reference, hyphenated word, and option is to create Tagged PDF

                                        When exporting an InDesign document to PDF, the hyphenated word is displayed incorrectly in the output PDF.

                                        It only happens with a line that has cross-reference object, hyphenated word, and option is to create Tagged PDF.

                                        InDesign 2019 (14.0.1) (MAC/PC) . Also tried it with previous versions and it has the same issue.
