  1. Fonts' OpenType features not working in Composite fonts in InDesign

    When using any Hebrew font in InDesign, the diacritics (nikuds) are displayed in their correct location. This location is set within the fonts by using OpenType features such as ccmp (for glyph substitution) and mark (for glyph positioning). InDesign recognizes and applies these features.

    When this font is used as part of a Composite font in InDesign, the result is quite different. It seems like the ccmp feature is honored but the mark feature is not.

    The diacritics shift and the length of the text increases. Some of this fluctuation can be mitigated by Diacritics Position feature in InDesign however…

  4. keyboard shortcuts not working

    2017 iMac Retina 5K 27", running Big Sur 11.5.2, InDesign 2021.

    Suddenly, without warning or explanation certain keyboard shortcuts have stopped working.

    The T shortcut to change to type tool flicks to type tool and then back to original tool (eg Selection tool).

    Hand tool on space bar does not work and zoom on space bar + cmd does not work.

    For some time now, you can't hide ID when there are no documents open by using cmd–H.

    I have been using ID since almost the very beginning and these have always worked. As I'm paying a monthly sub for…

  5. publish online mobile

    InDesign 16.4

    When i publish a document using 'publish online' it doesn't work correctly on mobile. When you first load it up on mobile the navigation bar at the bottom is there, but if you click anything on the page the navigation bar disappears. This then means you can't navigate through the rest of the brochure.

    I've tried this on multiple mobile browsers including Chrome, Edge & Brave and the same happens on each.

    This is a major issue for us as a lot of people will want to view this document on mobile.

    I've attached a couple of screenshots

  7. Stalling

    Within the last couple weeks, Indesign has been acting very glitchy for me. I've never had these problems before, but when I open a document the application seems to stall for a bit. This is happening in all my documents (so it isn't one file that is the issue). Indesign doesn't ever crash, but seems to get hung up within the first couple minutes of use.

  10. Major Preview Glitch

    I'm having a major glitch with preview screen mode in InDesign. When you toggle it on multiple elements on the page disappear, and this is happening on most documents and has only started within the last few days since the the last update. This is a major glitch when working on clients work when tings just start disappearing and not knowing if that is how it will print etc. I have uploaded a before and after image to show what disappears.

  13. loading TOC-styles between various Indesign-files

    InDesign version 16.4

    When loading a newly created TOC-style from one InDesign-file to an other file, it copies more than just the possible TOC-styles. I loaded the TOC-styles of an InDesign-file with a smaller font and spacing and the load copied these other settings as well.
    It seems that the 'Load TOC-styles' loads all available styles, including Paragraph- and Character-styles.
    The selection-list that is available when loading Paragraph-styles and/or Character-styles is also missing.
    This makes it impossible to load TOC-styles between different InDesign-files which use the same Paragraph-style names.

  14. Nested anchored tables are tagged as artifacts in PDF

    1. Adobe InDesign, v.16.4
    2. Create three text frames, with a table in the third. Anchor the frame with the table into the second frame, then anchor the second frame into the first. Style and create Articles for an accessible PDF. Export to an Interactive PDF.
    3. Table would appear tagged and in same order as it was anchored in the INDD file.
    4. Table is set as an artifact and does not appear in the tag tree at all.

  20. Hyperlink alt text is ignored in the latest version of Indesign

    When creating or editing a hyperlink there is an option to add alt text. If you add alt text to your link and export an accessible PDF the alt text is ignored. I have a document with a ton of hyperlinks that all need alt text which we have added but don't come through because of this bug. Now I'm forced to add them again to the PDF.
