  3. Text frame rules dialog

    To Adobe:

    do you find the color drop-down in the insert column rules dialog wide enough?

    The whole contour group box is not perfectly arranged...

  4. Wrong translation of “rule” in Czech version of InDesign 2020

    Please stop using Google Translate to translate Adobe UI to Czech language.

    The new feature Column Rules is translated into Czech language as Regulations for Columns! (Pravidla pro sloupce) This is totally wrong! It should read “Linky mezi sloupci” (lines in between columns). Also the word “linie” is wrong, it is not used by designers. You should use “linka” as it is already in use in other UI dialogs in InDesign.

  5. spell check dialogue box is too small for indic languages

    Spell check dialogue box is too small specially for indic languages. Very hard to read correct text. Any option to increase font size for indic languages. it's even for contextual menu.

  6. font

    I just downloaded version 14.0.3, working on Mac Sierra v. 10.14.6. I can no longer click in the font size box and change point size. In previous versions I could create font sizes such as 11.5, 12.5, etc., but now when I click in the font size box, it turns white and does not allow me to enter a number.

  7. sample buttons and forms

    The 'Sample buttons and forms' window automatically pops up when I start InDesign. Indesign starts with the workspace 'Start'. I resetted my workspace and the window still was there. Then I removed the window, saved my workspace again and it seems to be solved.
    I am not the only one with this problem:

  8. Style names truncated unnecessarily

    The UI for the styles palette truncates the names of the styles to an unusable length if a keyboard shortcut is assigned (even when no truncating is needed).

    In the attached image, we see that there's a lot of space to the right.

    The keyboard shortcuts could also be shortened using the relevant symbols instead of words. eg

    "⌥⇧⊞1"

    instead of

    "Opt+Shift+Num 1"

  9. a hand appears as a hover effect

    Hello,

    for both of my employees, a hand appears as a hover effect as soon as they move the mouse pointer into the Layers menu or the Pages menu. Then the mouse pointer freezes or slows down considerably.

    Both use OSX Mojave together with the latest InDesign CC version.

    How can we fix this problem?

    Thank you for your forthcoming help

  10. Renaming CC Library Elements

    Renaming elements that have been stored in the Creative Cloud Libraries panel is unstable and can use improvements.
    • There is no clear cursor to know where you are in the name.
    • Double clicking to highlight a word, once in the rename mode, common practice everywhere else, ends up opening the library item, not selecting the word you intended.
    • Doing a slow double click on the name, like you can do in the Layers panel to rename a layer doesn't work either.

  11. Please change one word in the German Indesign

    The German Word "Abstände" is used two times in the paragraph style panel but with two completely different meanings.

    First use "Einzüge und Abstände" is in English "Indents and Spacing".

    Second use "Abstände" is in English "Justification".

    Please change the second one to "Blocksatz" or "Blocksatzeinstellungen" so that the German users will not be confused anymore.

    Or contact a German speaking InDesign pro user for a better translation.

    Just a small change to make a lot of (German speaking) people happy!

  12. File Information won't close

    When I open the File Information window to edit the metadata of a file, I can't close the window because the OK and close buttons are off the bottom of the screen.

    When I try to resize the window, it will return to the size it is. In order to close it I have to restart InDesign!

    Please sort this!

  13. Renaming an object layer by double-clicking is tedious - sometimes non-responsive

    When working with layers, select an object, then double click the name to rename, it takes multiple clicks and a delay of several seconds before the name field becomes editable. Why? I don't see any other way to rename the object layer.

  14. custom ruler increments not used in object dimensions

    InDesign 14.0.2 (MacOS)
    Right-click on ruler (e.g., vertical ruler on left)
    set units to custom (e.g., 14 points)
    select object on page

    expected result: The dimensions (like the height field) should be in custom units
    actual result: The dimensions are shown in points

  15. Clicking on bookmark in bookmark panel resizes view

    When you double-click on a bookmark in the Bookmarks Panel to go there, the view resizes to a random zoom. (Random as far as I can tell, anyway, there is probably a reason for the zoom level deep in the code).

    Not sure if this is a bug or a feature request, but navigating a long document via the Bookmarks Panel would be much more useful if the view stayed at the same zoom level.

    See: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2630317

    Thank you.

  16. Can no longer filter on fonts with lining figures

    Adobe InDesign version 14.0.2

    I don't know when this started happening, but it's a big issue. It's no longer possible to filter fonts based on lining figures (that is, filter out old style figures). Here's what happens:

    1. With a text box selected, I click the dropdown arrow next to the font name in the Control palette.
    2. I click the Filter dropdown.
    3. With no filters selected, the font list looks as shown in the screenshot I'm attaching called Unfiltered. That screenshot shows a mix of fonts that have lining figures and those that don't.
    4. I select just…
