  1. thumbnail size

    I'd like to be able to adjust the size of the graphic thumbnails in the CC Library panel, similarly to the ability to adjusting the thumbnail size in the Gallery view of Lightroom.

    I am drawing from about a hundred images to build out a deck. Many photos are shot in similar locations and are subtly nuanced. On my 13" Macbook, I can't really distinguish them. There's plenty of room for a single line of larger images, but currently no ability to change their size. This makes ID largely useless for building out this deck unless I'm on my 27"…

  2. Images corrupted after 15.1

    After the update to 15.1, a majority of embedded images in tables got corrupted. The damage done to the images is unfixable.

  3. Cannot place this file. Invalid PNG file

    In 15.0.3, my publication was print ready

    I updated to 15.1 as I normally would.

    In 15.1, particular .png files were missing. I tried to place the missing images as usual but got the error - Cannot place this file. Invalid PNG file'.

    I rolled back to 15.0.3 and am now able to place the self same files.

    Update bug?

  4. can't delete all OR multiple missing links at once?

    break, remove, delete all OR multiple missing links at once? I thought it used to be able to do this -- I can't find it anywhere in 2019 or 2020.

    If not, why the heck not? It's obviously a useful feature. And I can't find anything anywhere using multiple search engines.

    and NO I do not want to watch a video that may or may not answer the problem -- I want to scan a page of text & images to see if it is relevant since no titles appear -- they're all about updating or repairing.

    I want to…

  5. Problem with changing the cursor to text - Indd 2020

    Hello. After running the latest version of InDesign CC 2020 v. 15.03. x64, I have a problem with changing the cursor to text and to back. It takes about 40-50 seconds. This happens each time you launch InDesign. The size of the processed file does not affect the error. Thanks for feedback.

  6. INDD 2020 distorted vector graphics when opening old files

    When we open old indd files, the incorporated vector graphics are distorted (even if the wire view is correct).
    Copy Paste make the deformation permanent.
    Importing original illustrator graphics in the doc works.

    This is a very important issue as we often rework/update packs for our customers, and massive production could be trashed if the default is not seen immediately.

    Trust in the tools is very important: we have no time/budget to recheck that everything is still perfect when changing a typo or ref somewhere else in the file.

  8. Links panel misreporting ICC profiles

    I would like the ICC column in the Links panel to actually show the ICC profile of the linked images. Right now it's misreporting image ICC profiles as "Document CMYK" when they are not, in fact, in that color space.

    I have an InDesign document that's using a CMYK profile of "U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2". It incorporates two copies of the same image, each with different CMYK profiles, "GRACoL 4c BW" and "CGATS21_CRPC1", respectively.

    Nevertheless, the ICC Profile column in the links tab reports that both of these images have the "Document CMYK" profile. As far as I can…

  9. Variable font doesn't...vary.

    I just installed the new Macklin variable fonts from Monotype. They work as expected in Illustrator, and the "regular" cut works as expected in InDesign. However, the Macklin Sans font dosen't work well in InDesign: the prebuilt weights are functional, but when one varies the axis sliders, they seem to have no effect. Bug in the font or in InDesign?

  11. align stroke to inside result wrong on compound path

    Indesign 15.0.2

    Steps:
    • Create a compound shape from a larger Path and a smaller path located completely within the larger one with »Exclude Overlap«
    • apply a Stroke with »Align stroke to inside«

    Expected result: The stroke should cover the fill along both path-elements
    Actual result: The stroke on the larger object covers the fill, the stroke on the smaller one doesn't, but extends into the outside

    See: https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign/align-stroke-to-inside-for-excluded-overlap/m-p/11056870?page=1#M182733

  14. CC Libraries panel gets stuck when Relinking

    Sometimes the CC Libraries panel gets stuck with the 'Select a graphic to relink' message when relinking. Can't select any options when this message is displayed.

  15. Can't sort by group or type when Relinking to CC Libraries

    When relinking to CC Libraries, you have no choice but to see a list of randomly sorted (or alphabetically sorted.. who knows) assets in CC Libraries. Users should be able to sort by Type or Group like in the normal CC Libraries panel.

  16. Alt text not appearing for images across spreads

    in ID 2020, image across double-page spreads will generate an alt-text error when exported to accessible PDF. This problem goes away when saved as IDML and opened in ID 2019.

  17. InDesign does not retain image size when linking with images with the same sizes.

    InDesign does not retain image size when linking with images with the same sizes (Preferences->File Handling->Preserve Image Dimensions - same behaviour whether checked or not) - When placing from desktop - when relinking it works - but it is not so user friendly :)

  18. CC Libraries content icon with spinning wheel

    I have a 3GB CC Library full of adverts for a magazine. Whenever I drag a new advert over to the CC Libraries panel, it will add the new artwork, but then its icon will show a blank square with four spinning squares inside. This has occurred ever since ID v15. I'm currently using v15.0.2.

  19. Linked AI / vector file previews with jagged bezier curves when rotated 90 degrees

    Bezier curve of linked AI file previews as jagged/tangent straight lines when rotated 90 degrees. Looks fine at all other angles.

    Linked file is saved as AI 2020.

    We have verified this issue using customer document.Issue is reproducible in InDesign’s 15.0.2 and 14.0.3 versions.
    We will update this thread once we have proper fix for this issue.

    Workaround:
    Please switch to CPU rendering and change display performance to typical.

  20. return, tab not working after placing object from library, until mouse is clicked somewhere in text

    InDesign 15.0.1, Mac
    After placing item from libary inline into the text, tab and return keys have no effect until the mouse is clicked somewhere in the text.
