  1. Wrong translation of “Publish online” UI in Czech language

    Please correct wrong translation of "Single" and "Spread". In the latest version of InDesign the translation means "One FIle" and "Extension", crazy, isn't it? Please follow the long established terminology developed in old days when you did ask humans to translate UI items and you did consult it with local experts: the names are correct in InDesign PDF export dialog, so why don't you reuse the correct terminology?
    The correct form is "Stránky" and "Dvojstránky".

    !!! PLEASE stop using robots or Google Translate for new features in InDesign !!!

  2. "Update Library Item" option missing in context menu of Libraries

    I am trying to update a library item. It's a previously created library item that I've made changes to. There used to be a contextual menu item called "Update Library Item" but it's gone.

    When resetting the prefences with Shift+Option+Command+Control at the start of InDesign or (for me) uninstalling and reinstalling a certain plugin, that menu item appears again.
    One user found out this:
    Renamed Adobe Indesign folder in ~/Library/Caches. That did the trick for me !!
    For the ultimate test, I put back the "old" Adobe Indesign folder and the issue was back again.

  5. windows 10 - paste number from clipboard history into X/Y-object coordinates

    How to repeat the issue:

    1. Activate Clipboard history in windows settings (win 10)
    2. Copy a random number to your clipboard (my testnumber "-2,375")
    3. Create a new document and place a rectangle (or random object) on your page
    4. Select the object and click (focus) in the field for the y-coordinates
    5. hit "windows+V" to open your clipboard history (must be activated in the settings)
    6. Click on your previous copied number.

    6-Bug. The number has been pasted two times in the y-coordinates field.

    Test system:
    - Win 10 pro (1809)
    - current Indesign CC version (how to check the actual version?)

  8. Cursor size in working area is huge InDesign CC 2018 Win

    The ID cursor (black) when over the workspace is huge. It is normal size when hovering over the tool bars (white), but when you move over the workspace it is supersized. This occurs when working on an external monitor, but is scaled appropriately on HD Laptop Screen.
