  1. Small UI. unable to alter micro menu text and tools

    maybe a sliding scale tool to determine what size UI a user wishes to work with?

  7. export

    When exporting a PDF, the progress bar has two frames reversed. As the progress bar moves downwards, it goes from leaving the four bottom lines filled, to the bottom three, bottom two, then an empty bar, then one bar filled. Those last two frames are out of order.

  10. File Info box does not displaying

    File Info box does not display on screen. It can be escaped or the default OK chosen, but all other operations are locked out so you cannot find it. Operating InDesign 14.0.2 on macOS 10.14.4 using a secondary monitor LG Ultra HD Display 30.5 inch.

  11. When relinking multiple files Skip causes a cancel, not a skip

    Version of Adobe InDesign, InCopy or InDesign Server
    14.0.2.324

    Steps to reproduce the issues
    1. Select multiple files in the Links panel.
    2. Click the Relink button.
    3. Click on the Skip button at the bottom of the dialogue

    Expected result
    The current file is skipped an I can continue to relink other files selected

    Actual result
    The relink process is canceled

    There is already a Cancel button so the Skip button should provide a different result. It seems intuitive that Skip means Skip this file, but continue with the other selected files.

    Test file, screenshot, video or GIF capturing…

  13. ScriptUI: Opening Dialog while dialog is open breaks InDesign

    I'm running InDesign 14.0.2 on a macOS High Sierra (10.13.6)

    In a script i created I have a Dialog. It has a button that opens another dialog.

    Before my last indesign-update (CC 14.0.2) the second dialog would open and when i closed it, i could use the previous dialog window again.

    Now with the Update when I open the second dialog and close it again, i cant use (or close) the previous dialog and it blocks me from using InDesign. I can move the dialogwindow around but thats it so i have to restart indesign.

    I tested this on two…

  15. I emphasize enough how much I dislike the new styling on the text/paragraph style dialogues

    It is SOO much harder to select the paragraph (or whatever) style I need now. The key information in that dialogue is the style name, which I know you know because that's what you show when it's selected. But that style name isn't the most visible part of the drop-down. In my case, it's darn hard to see. This is slowing me way down and I'm feeling very grumpy about it.
    I was also really irritated when the resize quick keys did a switcheroo here after 20+ years, but I can get over that. This one -though! Apologies for the…

    Hi,
    This new menu you are seeing is only visible from the properties panel.
    You can still see the list of paragraph styles from the Paragraph Styles menu (Type→Paragraph styles) in the same way as it used to be in previous years.
    Please let us know if you still face the problem

    Thanks,
    Aman

  16. welcome screen won't load

    Welcome screen won't load. It just seems to hang up and I never see my recent files. I can still use InDesign as usual, but this new bug is frustrating.

  17. Loading icon animation

    The spinning icon dots are off-centred and rotate awkwardly. It's only visible briefly, but looks clumsy in a premium app.

  18. Properties panel - linked panels opening across extended windows

    Win 10 / InDesign cc2019

    I have an issue where the underlined panel options don't respect the boundaries of my extended screen configuration causing the popped out palette to split across windows.

    In illustrator these linked palettes always appear within the confines of a maximised application window's boundary.

    P.S. I hope it is your intention to continue to develop the properties panel so that more of the options appear naturally within its space. Similar to the way the Transform, Character, Paragraph and Align sections do via the 'more options' ellipses.

    I've pointed out your approach on the Illustrator forum in…
