  1. pages breaking and vertical lines on screen

    When i am working in any document since updating to Indesign 17 including the recent 17.0.1 the pages start to get vertical lines and horizontal lines, and the design elements start overlapping or having duplicates, tables will not display as aligned, trying to select text and my curser is really clicking 2 lines above. If i click "W" to toggle between Presentation view and back sometimes that will fix some of it and other times it will make it worse. I have attached a few screen shots to show how it will display different pages. When i go to export…

  2. inputfield filename

    In previous versions of indesign (using 17.0.1 now) when saving a new file, the inputfield of the filename was already selected. But now it isn't anymore. I'm using OS Monterey (Mac) and this problems occurs on two different systems (home computer and work computer). How to fix this?

  3. 100% scaling is anything but

    I have a MacBook Pro 16" (Intel) with an external Samsung 5k monitor.

    Starting recently, when I select View –> Actual size I get a tiny document not by any means represented @ 100%. See screenshot.

    Formerly, the command has rendered an almost 1:1 representation, which is what could be expected (not least since the command is called "actual size" and that the resulting window header says "100%").

    The issue is described here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign-discussions/recent-changes-to-gui-scaling/m-p/12578562.
    Version of InDesign: 17.0.1.

  7. InDesign not displaying actual (print) size

    InDesign 2021 does not actually show you the printed size of the document.

    There are two potential (and faulty) options to achieve this currently:

    1. Set the zoom level to 100%: On various forums I've read that this should let you view the document at actual print size. A document that physically takes up 10x10cm on your screen, should print at 10x10cm.

    In effect, that doesn't happen and the 100% renders my document at a way larger size than what it's actual size. (I'm literally holding up a ruler against my screen, and a 10cm wide page is about 20cm wide…

  8. Adding file extension after first letter of file name when saving a new document

    When I save a new document, the default file name is "Untitled-1.indd" (or .psd or .ai). If I want to call the file "ProjectA.indd" when I start typing and press "P" all creative cloud apps add the file extension after the first letter then continue with what I am typing. So what should be "ProjectA" turns into "P.inddrojectA." If I only type "Pr" I get "P.inddr." If I start to delete and remove the r and the second d, it will add the file extension again so I end up with "P.ind.indd." If I delete back to the "P" and…

  10. ID 2021: New documents open in the background of home screen

    Windows 10, ID 2021 (16.4)
    Bug 1: new documents open in the background of the home screen. See video.
    Bug 2: if the home screen isn't shown and you create a new file, the home screen will appear and lay over the new document.
    Bug 3: if you change anything on the page, the home screen appears
    Bug 4: if you create multiple new documents and close them, it will sometimes ask to save them and sometimes it won't.

  11. Font names display inconsistently

    This is a strange one: we use this font https://fonts.adobe.com/fonts/lus (you have to put a 't' on the end of that url, Uservoice thinks it's rude, apparently) it's Regular and Display weights. On two computers this shows up as (syntax here is [Font Family] / [Font Style]) Lus(t) / Regular and Lus(t) Display / Regular, respectively. On three others they show up as Lus(t) / Regular and Lus(t) / Display and there seems to be no way to align them.

    I've attached a screenshot of how the taskbar shows font on the machines that separate them out.

    The first two…

  12. Menu not appearing when clicking toolbar hamburger button

    I got the problem that the menu that should appear when you click on an "hamburger" button in the top right corner of a toolbar doesn't appear.
    This happens on a second screen when you got more than one screen/monitor, and the main screen has higher resolution than the second one. It also only happens to toolbars that are positioned near the bottom edge of the second screen and where the menu height is larger than the distance between the "hamburger" button and the bottom edge of the screen.

  15. UI Default Too **** Small!

    UI in InDesign 15.0.1 is way too small by default and not scalable. Many users have been complaining about this for years, yet you guys refuse to do anything about it, while charging us up the wazzoo for subscription fees. If this is not addressed soon, we may all abandon you for Canva.

  16. InDesign 2022 - Wrong Icons in Toolbar

    It looks like the icons for selection and direct selection are flip-flipped in the toolbar.

    Selection should be black, and direct select should be white.

  17. publicrelations@westerncounties.ca

    My Adobe Indesign updated to 2022, but my User Interface font is very small and I can't increase the size. The choice to increase UI size is greyed out (see attached screen shot). Any ideas on the issue?

  18. User Interface got large

    The User interface got large and many commands in the control bar have been hidden even if I set it on Small in the preferences!
    I can't get the small interface that was in the previous version.

  20. "Selection" and "direct selection" tool icons mixed up in toolbar

    The button images for "selection" and "direct selection" tools are mixed-up. The buttons are still in their correct place, but the "selection tool" button now displays the white arrow in the toolbar, the "direct selection" button the black arrow.

    The mouse arrows themselves remain correct, as do their functions.

    ID 2022 is showing the correct behavior for the Selection and Direct Selection Tools in all color themes. Compare the Dark Theme icons with the Light theme icons to know the difference.
    So basically, now the “Filled/Solid” tool is the Selection Tool and the “Hollow” tool is the Direct Selection Tool.
    As you can see, in the Dark/Medium Dark mode, the Selection Tool is shown as Filled and the Direct Selection Tool is shown as Hollow – which is the same as in the Light theme.
    The earlier versions of InDesign were showing it incorrectly.
