  2. spacebar used as toggle for hand tool from another tool

    When using any tool—after using the spacebar to access the hand tool temporarily, the hand tool then remains. It does not toggle back to the tool used previously.

  4. ID File Finder windows always revert back to minimal size after each use

    All windows in the File menu that access the Finder (Save As, Export, Place, etc) always revert back to their minimal size after using them once instead of keeping last used size. Always need to resize the window to see more items in my destination folder.

  5. Save as... Open, Place... dialog panels too small

    In Big Sur, the Save as... (cmd-S) Open (cmd-O) and Place... (cmd-D) dialog boxes are too small. They only offer between three and six lines of text. However, you can drag the panel out to see more folders/files, BUT, it doesn't stick. When you've closed the dialog and open it again, it has reverted to the smaller size.

    Photoshop doesn't seem to suffer with this issue, but Illustrator does.

  6. Unable to rename sublayer while panel is docked

    In InDesign 2001 16.0.1 for Mac (and possibly other versions) it is not possible to rename a sublayer when the layers panel is docked.

    Changing sublayer names is only possible when the panel is floating. The sublayer name should be editable whether the panel is docked or floating.

  7. Relink window too small!

    When I go to relink, which is all the time, I have to resize the window as it defaults to a really small size, and it doesn't remember it so I have to do every. Single. Time.

  8. Recents on Home screen Ability to pin indesign projects on the home landing screen

    A frustration with indesign and an opportunity to improve. As a user of indesign I want to be able to pin certain projects I am working on and see them on the landing home screen. (Currently I have to rely on win folders to store projects).

    So that I can easily locate projects that are of value and referenced not so regularly

  9. New Share tutorial animation loops continuously when opening ID, with no affordance to terminate.

    When opening the application, ID can dramatically improve the user experience and the opportunity to show new features (in this case, the new Share feature) by giving the user a choice to opt-into learning about a said new feature by presenting the user with a [yes | no | maybe later | never show again] dialog message.

    Currently, on a MacBook Pro running Catalina (10.15.7), ID 2021 immediately starts looping a tutorial animation within a fairly large overlay which appears to be intended to promote the new Share functionality. This all happens immediately when the rest of the UI is…

  10. set default open folder

    Upgraded to ID 16.0.1x64 today on a Win 10 64 system. File Open, or File Save, both want to use "This PC > Documents" and not the original file folder. Didn't have this problem prior to the upgrade.

    How can I set the default file open folder?

  11. Option-Click and Drag

    InDesign 16.0.1. (and prior)

    I updated to Catalina OS on Mac. Option-Click no longer works as it should. It is supposed to straight duplicate one time. Now it is acting as a step and repeat and is creating 2 duplicates instead of one. Please help. I can't find how to fix this.

  12. InDesign 16.00 does not allow making new folder / using Cmd+P shortcut

    Updated version of InDesign (16.0.) does not allow making new folder when using Save As or Open dialog on MacOS Mojave. Also you can not use Cmd+P shortcut in the same dialog - this is very helpful shortcut that opens current folder in Finder.

  13. Superscript and subscript buttons do not produce the font’s superscript and subscript figures

    Clicking on the superscript/subscript buttons scales the selected glyphs to a seemingly random size, placing them on a default height,
    * ignoring all of the dedicated OS/2 values in the font: subscriptXOffset, subscriptYOffset, subscriptXSize, subscriptYSize, superscriptXOffset, superscriptYOffset, superscriptXSize, superscriptYSize,
    * and ignoring subs, sinf and sups OpenType features in the font.

  14. shortcuts numpad not working

    Hi everyone,

    Hi everyone, I can't assign shortcuts to numeric keyboards anymore. For example: the combination cmd+ Num 0 ceased to work and is unable to be reassigned.

  16. Unable to kill find missing fonts background process

    If the preferences setting to automatically find missing fonts is set, there are three major issues:

    1/ The background process never times out,
    2/ The background process severely degrades InDesign performance for everything else, and
    3/ There is no way to manually kill that background process. If we could, then issues 1 and 2 would not be such problems. If the fonts aren't found, or the internet connection is hinky, or if the Adobe servers are under heavy load or having other issues, we could just kill that background process and then either try again later or design an workaround…

  18. Ruler with "pixel dirt"

    I've noticed this "pixel dirt" at the base of the upper ruler. Sometimes, it shows up, I quit and it's gone to later show up again, "out of the blue".

  20. Smart guides not working at all

    Snap to grid and smart guides or any function where cursor automatically snaps to edge, corner, or center point is not working. I am currently using version 16.0. I have restarted the program 5 times. All of these features are check marked and turned on despite the features not working at all.

    I will not work on my project because of this issue. I need to rely on the precise support of smart guides and snap to guides in order to do what I have to do. I'm very disappointed with this bug and upset I'm set back so much…
