  1. Color appears across screen for no reason

    Often when I'm working in the Indesign (16.2.1) document layout, color is suddenly stretched across my screen (see attached image). I cannot recreate it myself and don't know when it will happen next. Sometimes if I zoom in and out it will go away but usually I have to scroll away to a different page and then go back to find it gone. I'm using MacOS Big Sur 11.4.

  3. Applying character or paragraph style causes eventual crash

    I make extensive use of the command-RETURN keyboard shortcut to apply character and paragraph styles. It seems that if I use this shortcut enough times, InDesign will crash. This happens several times a day, forcing me to reopen all my files and try to remember where I was.

  4. Problem copying font from Acrobat Pro DC PDF (to Word and Indesign)

    [Adobe Indesign 2021 - 16.3 / Suitcase Fusion 21.3.0]

    Since the last update, I am unable to copy/paste from a PDF in Acrobat the accented characters of the French dictionary (ô, é, è, ç, à) to Word or Indesign, whatever the font is (Adobe font or personal font).

    The glyph disappear when pasted.

    The glyphs exists in the dictionary when looking at the panel in Indesign.

  6. Share for Review Box Blank

    I know the most recent update was supposed to fix this issue, but I am still having issues with the blank box in the "Share for Review" section. Any suggestions?

  8. Slow InDesign

    I have downloaded InDesign in June 2021. It is working really really very slow. Also making my computer too slow to work on.
    I tried contacting your customer care through chat window of yours.
    There the person says you have 4 gb ram that is why it is so. Also he send my the installation requirements where it says minimum 4 gb ram required.
    I don't understand if it has to work so slow on 4 gb then why is it written only. Better say 64 gb required and no mention of 4gb to be made.
    Is there any way…

  9. Uservoice shows error message and creates double posts

    I've klicked on publish button and got a error message at my last post.
    I thought maybe it's a problem with the size of the attachment, so I've tried an other file and got no problems at publishing.
    Now I've seen, that the first two attempts, that were stopped by a error message of this system here, were published too.
    So fyi, I didn't want to make a double or tripple post.

    Maybe you want to take a look at this behaviour too.

  10. InDesign lags MacOS Catalina when using a screen profile other than sRGB

    Reminder for Adobe not to forget this bug.
    As described here:

    Attached a screen capture of a very simple InDesign document showing the lag when changing the profile of the monitor to anything else than sRGB – even AdobeRGB doesn't work.

  12. Weird Bug with Resize to Frame

    Resize frame to content messes up and I'm not sure if it's something to do with a setting I have set since this doesn't always happen.

    Basically, I'll have a frame around some content with text in it.

    When I hit "resize frame to content" ctrl-alt-c, it resizes the frame to the full document width, which looks like the example.

    I obviously expect the frame to resize to the content, not to be super wide like the entire document.

  14. Unknown character inserted before hyphen in PDF export

    InDesign v16.1

    We have an InDesign file where the word "papier" is hyphenised by InDesign in this way "pa-pier", but after exporting in PDF, an unknown character was inserted before the hyphen and is shown as the letter "u" overlapping a displaced hyphen. Copy/pasting the word from the PDF gives this: pa�-pier

    If the PDF is exported again, the problem is not reproduced.

  15. index marker grep bug in findchangelist

    The prelisted double to single space query in the findchangebylist.jsx also delets index markers between spaces.

    While using the find-exchange window in ID to first look for [space]+(~I+)[space]+ to exchange it with [space]$1 works well enough, putting this in the findchangelist.txt, it deletes the index markers aswell. (note: [space] is only to visualize a regular space. I'm not writing it out in my queries.)

    I also noticed, that they also only partially work in the regular GREP search in the F/E-window: using lookahead or lookbehind is only able to find the position of the marker but not the character that…

  16. Files open small and display in the top left only - scrolling goes hay wire

    the program seems to be functioning, but will only open and create new files in the top left hand corner of the screen. If I zoom in, it will zoom, but only in that small space. If I scroll, it goes hay wore showing only grey and clipping lines like it can't process what its viewing.

    Help, I can't use Indesign at all with it like this.

  17. Variable Fonts: Align Stroke to Center shows overlaps

    When using variable fonts, the Align Stroke to Center shows the overlaps in letters with live text (not good). If I use Align Stroke to Outside the overlaps arenʻt shown with live text (good) but once I use Type > Create Outlines the overlaps are shown (not good).

    This happens in many variable fonts, for example Source Code VF Concept (see screenshot attached), but also true with my own variable fonts and those from other type foundries.

    With the non-variable font version, the Stroke looks good in all settings mentioned here. The variable font version should look the same. Thank…

  18. windows long paths not supported

    InDesign fails to open or place files with long paths in Windows. The "Long Paths Enabled" registry setting is enabled (i.e. it is set to 1). The problem affects several functions:


    1. From Bridge, Place > In Indesign causes "Script Alert: Error: Expected a reference to an existing File/Folder"


    2. DataMerge in InDesign: images with long paths are skipped, i.e. aren't merged. There is no error message.


    3. From InDesign. I cannot manually place a file with a long path through the “Place” dialog box. The dialog box will display the folder and thumbnails, but when I click the image to place it,…

  20. Letter "a" does not appear

    I was configuring Indesign Preferences on a new document. Suddenly, the letter "a" stopped working. I mean, I can't write a single word with the letter "a".
    Tried to open older documents, and the letter appeared when I pressed the button!
