  2. DAY 42 - Slow Publish Online document loading - Case ADB-25741223-T9S3

    Very slow loading of Publish Online documents, also slow uploading from Indesign. Also lost ability to ‘’save to homescreen” on iOS/Safari. Issue still not fixed despite asking over and over again, wasted many hours, not even sure if there's any one there at Adobe that read these things?

  3. Bug: Find/Change of conditional text partially bad

    Version: Indesign 17.x, Windows 10
    Description: Find/Change dialog cannot find a text that has two or more conditions set when you select one of these to find.
    Step to reproduce:
    1. Write some text and mark a word.
    2. Create two conditions, A and B, and assign them to that word. Exit edit mode.
    3. Open Find/Change and set the filter in "Conditions" to find condition A only.
    Result: Indesign cannot find a match. Logical bug.

    P. S. I wanted to add an INDD to demonstrate, but software says it's not allowed

  5. Autosize text boxes not refreshing

    InDesign 17.3
    Autosize textbox with anchored autosize text boxes, if the anchored textbox resizes to match the text, often, the parent autosize text box does not change to accommodate it. The child text box increases size and overlaps the text boxes or other anchored items around it. A provisional fix is to manually resize the parent textbox which causes a refresh. The refresh should be automatic.

  6. "Convert URLs to Hyperlinks..." feature does not work with URLs containing accented characters.

    "Convert URLs to Hyperlinks..." feature in the Hyperlinks pannel does not work with URLs containing accented characters. The GREP request for detecting URLs should be updated in future versions of inDesign.

  7. InDesign 2022 crashing when pasting or importing MS Word text.

    Running Windows 11, I can't import text from Microsoft Word. Even by copying the texto on Word and pasting onto InDesign, the app crashes over and over and over again. I just can't work.

  8. InDesign window defaults fullscreen after escaping presentation mode

    When entering presentation mode (shift+w), and then escape, InDesign windows becomes fullscreen.

    When I come out of presentation view the window size gets forgotten and automatically becomes the size of my entire screen (very annoying to keep having to resize the window all the time, completely disrupts my work flow) It even cuts off the bottom tool bar, which I use a lot.

    I have an M1 Macbook, Indeisgn 17.4

    I have previously posted this and told that the issue was fixed. I followed all instructions and the issue is still there.

  12. Bug: Quality issue when exporting 72dpi jpg from InDesign

    Sudden quality issue especially around text when exporting 72dpi jpg from InDesign vs exporting 300dpi jpg from InDesign then opening in PS, downsizing to 72dpi and exporting as jpg again. Mainly on Vector text but also noticable in images especially when creating gifs. Noticeable pixelation around text edges.

    Examples and export setting screen shots below including side by side comparison (original 72dpi InD export left + 300dpi InD export reduced to 72dpi in PS right).png

    Running macOS Monterey on Mac Studio 2022 & Latest InDesign 17.4.

    Has only happened since the latest software update. This happened a few months back…

  13. Hey, can we make emoji's available for GenZ and millenial content creators?

    Would make my job much more efficient if there were an emoji keyboard available natively in the software.

  14. consecutive Footnote numbering across book file with multiple sections

    Currently InDesign can't have consecutive numbering across it's footnotes if you have a publication made up of a number of book files.
    It always restarts at one.
    That's hopeless if you're doing an annual report where you need consecutive numbering across the entire book.

  16. bug: stroke and fill not showing / error

    Fill and stroke is not showing when I create a shape / use a template that already has a shape in it.
    Additionally, images held in frames with those effects don't show correctly - when opening a file the placeholder frame which has an image in it will then show with a. white fill over the image, and no stroke effect.
    However, when you export as a .pdf all the file looks fine.

  17. custom dictionary

    We had spent a lot of money creating user dictionaries for Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu many years back. The dictionaries that worked with CC 2014 are not working now. I have tried many times and my complaints get closed. I have even given ideas of how to solve the problem, but no response. I

  18. Parent Text Frame Offset when Autoflowing Text

    When autoflowing text, the parent page text frame is being offset on every new page that's automatically added.

    In the attached screenshot, the top page was manually added and text autoflowed into it from the previous page. The parent text frame is positioned as per the top page.

    InDesign 17.4
    Expect parent page text frame to be in the position it is in on the parent page.
    Actual result: text frame is offset to the right and down and has to be repositioned on every page manually.

  19. disappearing text paragraph style

    I am using InDesign 17.4 under macOS 12.6 on an iMac Retina 5K, 27", 2017 with a 3.4 GHz i5, 32GB RAM, and a Radeon Pro 570.

    When I attempt to create a new paragraph style with an active text selection and check 'Apply Style to Selection', any change I make to the new paragraph style, including simply naming the style, renders the text invisible.

    The expected result, of course, would be to have visible text.

    The actual result is invisible text.

    Relaunching ID, restarting the computer, and rebuilding the preferences file all had no effect. The only workaround I…
