  1. Easy-Access On/Off Toggle Needed for "Use Typographer's Quotes"

    I create and edit spec sheets that use lots of "typographer's quotes" and "non-typographer's quotes" AKA "inch marks." Having "use typographer's quotes" turned OFF allows me to type an "inch mark."

    So I constantly have to open preferences to turn typographer's quotes OFF to create inch marks in my dimensions charts, then turn it back ON to use typographer's quotes in my paragraphs.

    Adding a quick-access toggle for typographer's quotes, or even including a shortcut to type the opposite kind of quotation mark would be helpful and save time.

  2. interface is too big....

    1080p, 125% screen setting is in use. (laptop)

    But the InDesign interface is too big.

    InDesign Version : 2020.0.2
    Steps to Reproduce a Problem: 1080p, 125%
    Actual Result: Interface Abnormally Large

  3. jittery cursor

    My Indesign cursor flickers and is jittery when I have Photoshop running in the background. I'm running Catalina 10.15.4 on a 27" iMac Retina 5K. Never experienced this problem before this week.

  4. New Document UI Issue

    When opening InDesign and creating a new document, I am treated with a black box that houses all the options and selections to open a document. If I change the UI to touch based, it shows up. When I go back to regular mouse and keyboard, it goes black again.

  5. Workspace not showing at startup (indesign 2020 v 15.0.2)

    Issue with the workspace not loading or not showing at startup. Sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn't. Today i tried opening photoshop first and then after that indesign opened correctly. Adobe claimed to have this issue resolved by version 14.0.3. That means either it has never been resolved or it returned in this version.

  8. CMD+O (Open File Dialog) Doesn't work after new 15.0 and 15.0.2 releases.

    CMD+O no longer opens the "Open File Dialog" upon first entering InDesign after launch. Once you open a file thru the Menu, CMD+O starts working properly.

    This was an issue in a previous version release, and now it has turned up again in this latest release.

  9. Needing a smaller swatches panel (minimum 1 line, not 2 lines)

    Context : On most of my documents, with few but very distinct colors, I'll often switch to "big thumbnails". It's easy to distinguish a color from a lighter or darker version.

    But then, when the panel could displays two lines of swatches, I would only need one (see linked file), freeing a lot of screen space.

    Except the minimum size of that panel doesn't go under 2 lines, when 1 would be enough.

  11. number input white

    When trying to input a specific value for any number field, it's just white and won't reflect anything I type or reflect the change when I hit return.

  12. Bring back title bar icons from CC 2018

    Those were so handy, why have they been removed? There is plenty of space on the title bar.

  13. InDesign 2020 15.0.1 CEP panel size bug on Windows HiDPI with scaling > 100%

    On some Windows workstations, my InDesign CEP panel has the wrong size (way too large). This looks like a re-surfacing of the old bug mentioned here:

    • Version:

    InDesign version 15.0.1


    • Steps to reproduce:

    Install this dummy sample 'Hello World' panel into InDesign 15.0.1 on Windows 10 on a workstation with a HiDPI display. Make sure the Windows Display Scaling it set to 100%

    https://rorohiko.com/downloads/ID2020PanelSizeBug/ID2020PanelSizeBug.1.0.0.zxp

    Run InDesign, open the panel -> should be OK.

    Quit InDesign, change the Windows display scaling to 200%

    Run InDesign, open the panel -> panel is extraordinary large. See screenshots on

  14. home

    Delete the new "home button" (located next to the "file" button) in Indesign, or turn it into an optional feature.

  15. In Japanese version, "Column" is incorrectly translated as "列" instead of "段"

    InDesign 15.0.1
    There are at least eight places where "Column" should be translated as "段" in the Japanese version, but "列".
    Please see the list on the next page along with the Japanese version of the screen capture.
    https://cs5.xyz/blog/2020/02/indesigntextcolumn.html

    日本語版で"Column"を"段"と訳すべきところ、"列"と訳されているところが少なくとも8箇所あります。
    次のページに日本語版の画面キャプチャとともにリストアップしましたので見てください。

  16. App Switcher

    When I use app switcher on MacBook Pro, Catalina, InDesign 15.0.1, I cannot get over to InDesign. I have to use Mission Control, then click on the Desktop to which I have assigned InDesign. I would appreciate if that could be fixed. Gary

  17. InDesign help/welcome screen

    I don't like the fact that the, what looks like a "welcome screen" always pops up after closing InDesign work page. I was told it it's a UI of the application.
    Please find a way for us to turn that off. I find it annoying and not helpful during my work day.

  18. "Edit Page Size" drop down list; each entry duplicated

    When using the "Edit Page Size" button/drop down on the Pages panel, the list of page sizes has begin showing duplicate entries, and I'm not sure why. It seems to have started out of nowhere.
    To select an item in the list, you can see in the screenshot that each entry is doubled, and sometimes the "top" item is the correct one to click, other times it is the "bottom" item. In each pairing, one of them does nothing when selected.
    I've attached an image to show what I mean.

  19. Wrong translation of "Art" in German version of InDesign 2020

    In prior versions of InDesign one import option for AI and PDF files used to be "Objekt" which is still used in the online help document while InDesign shows probably the original English word "Art" which is confusing since this word also exists in German language but makes no sense in this context.

  20. pages panel

    Hi, when I have the Pages panel open and add a few pages or spreads, I can't see the numbers of the final pages, they're hidden by a blank panel. Could someone please look into this or provide a workaround. Screen shot attached.

    Thanks
