  1. Nach Update fehlt die Möglichkeit ein Bild im Text zu verankern

    Seit dem Update auf InDesign 17.3. fehlt all meinen Bildrahmen das kleine grüne Kästchen das man zur Verankerung von Grafiken in Texten verwenden konnte. Auch das Einfügen eines verankerten Bilder per rechten Mausklick funktioniert nicht mehr. Vor zwei Tagen war die Funktion noch wie gewohnt vorhanden. Gibt es evtl. einen ShortCut, um diese Funktion wieder zu aktivieren oder die Möglichkeit die Software darauf hin zurück zusetzen, dass die gewohnte Funktion wieder vorhanden ist?

    Leider kann ich außerdem in diesem Webformular mit dem unten stehenden Button weder PNG-Dateien noch JPG-Dateien uploaden, um ihnen ein Bild von meinem Problem zu zeigen :-(…

  5. 72 DPI images not placing at 100%, scaling to 216 DPI

    This has apparently been a discussion since at least 2019 and has not yet found a solution:

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign-discussions/jpg-not-placing-at-proper-dimensions/m-p/12933878/page/3#M476611

    When placing certain jpg images saved to 72 DPI, In Design frequently places them at 1/3 actual size, or down to 216 DPI. This is including if the ID document's increments/document size are set to pixels. It seems most common with jpgs saved in a standard "Save As" format from Photoshop vs. the legacy "Save for Web."

    1. Versions 14.02 to 17.1 - Edit - issue continues after update to 17.2.1.
    2. Steps to reproduce: place a jpg image saved to 72 dpi resolution

  6. Linked Images Disappearing/ InDesign Files Opening as Read-Only

    Good morning!

    After my computer updated to Monterey 12.3.1, the linked images in InDesign files (indd) turn black or static or with colored stripes like bad reception on an old TV. The link panel did not show a broken link but I had to manually relink all the files. I've tried reinstalling InDesign and going back to an earlier version of InDesign. All to no avail.

    A second problem that occurred is that InDesign files would only open as read only. When I tried to resave it said that someone had them checked out or I didn't have permissions to…

  7. importing multiple illustrator artboards into empty frames no longer works

    With the 2021 version of indesign I could 'load' my cursor with an illustrator file and select 'all' artboards, then i could 'drop' each artboard into an empty indesign frame - this no longer works in the 2022 version (17.2). Instead it just drops the first image in and the loaded cursor 'cancels'.

  9. Placed PDFs and Images Not Rendering

    I'm on InDesign 2022 (17.2) and have started recently having issues with placed images and PDFs after an update. I have a 2021 silicon Mac Mini for Travel and an Intel 2019 iMac for home use. Both on Monterey 12.3.1

    The rendering issue began after certain documents originally worked on in the silicon version had issues when opening in the Intel version.

    This happened with both images (TIFs, JPGs) and PDF files. After placing the files in InDesign (in the mac mini) they rendered fine. Upon opening the files though in InDesign on my iMac. The renderings did not appear.…

  10. Persistent graphics issues

    There are STILL graphics problems in Indesign 17.2. Things disappearing off the screen that don't reappear unless you try and move them (zooming in and out doesn't work), streaks appearing across the screen.

    I am so bored of the constant bugs in this app.

  11. InDesign library with images linked to server disappears on placement

    An InDesign library with entries that contain images LINKED TO A SERVER will not drag-and-drop to the InDesign page. The library entry disappears upon releasing the mouse button and a Mac system alert sounds. Repeatable in CC2020, CC2021, and CC2022 in Big Sur and Monterey. This doesn't happen in OS Catalina.

    Using SMB protocol to connect to image server.

    Repro Steps:
    1) Put images on a server. Use different image formats (.ai, .eps, .jpg, etc.)
    2) Link those images from the server to image boxes in InDesign.
    3) Add those images boxes to an InDesign library.
    4) Drag/drop those entries…

  12. Place multi-page PDF pages: Place Gun will be unloaded after first page is placed to a frame

    New bug with InDesign 17.2 that I cannot see with InDesign 17.1.

    [1] Load multiple PDF pages from a multi-page PDF to the place gun.
    [2] Hover the loaded cursor over a graphic frame to place the first page in that frame
    [3] Click to place the first page.

    Result:
    The first page is placed to the frame

    BUG: The rest of the loaded PDF pages in the place gun are unloaded. The place gun is empty after you placed the first of several pages to a frame.

    WHAT WORKS:
    [1] Load multiple PDF pages from a multi-page PDF to…

  13. Fixing images and text wrap

    Since a longer time there is a bug, that makes it impossible to let the text flow around beside an image, while this image is fixed with a anchor mark. The line, where the anchor mark is set doesn’t flow around. That makes an unhappy compronise necessary: Either you don’t set the anchor mark and the image doesn’t flow with the text or you set an manual word wrap.

    This should be fixed because in other programs it also works.

  14. V2022 - Museo Sans fonts not working after InDesign update

    I recently upgraded my InDesign on my PC, running Windows 10 Enterprise, from Version 2019 to Version 2022.

    After the update, my Museo Sans from Adobe fonts stopped working in Version 2022. I couldn't convert my InDesign file back to 2019, so I ended up pulling it into a Mac environment and re-saving successfully from V2021 to an IDML file and re-opening it in InDesign V2019 on my PC. The fonts are visible in the newly re-opened V2019 file.

    I've included screen shots of what I see in V2022 (most Museo Sans text missing) and V2019 (all Museo Sans text…

  15. Roboto fonts not working in indesign

    I have tried everything to add Roboto fonts to creative cloud to be used in InDesign but nothing works. First, I click on the "f" in the upper right hand corner, and it just spins and spins saying loading. The next thing I tried was going to Adobe Fonts website and 'Activiating all Robot Fonts." Even though it shows as activated, Whenever I try to export my design it says following fonts (Roboto family) aren't currently available.

  16. scrolling causes screen distortion of document pages

    Adobe Indesign 17.0.1 on a M1XMax 16" 2021 MacBook Pro. MacOS = 12.1

    When scrolling through a document, the screen becomes distorted (per the attached video screen recording). The distortion becomes worse the more you scroll. Closing and re-opening the document is a (very) temporary fix but the distortion reappears almost immediately.
    Theory: May be associated with using a 1x resolution on the screen display, rather than one of the 2x retina display resolutions.

  17. multiple files not placing correctly when multi-page pdf is present

    when placing multiple PDF files, after placing a multi-page PDF, the next file in sequence is skipped.

    InDesign v 17.0.1

    to reproduce:
    - open place dialogue and select multiple files from same folder (with options)
    - apply options for 'all' pages
    - place the sequence

    We would expect all pages of all files to place.

    Instead, some files are not placed but remain in the links window without a selectable link on the page.

    In the screenshot you can see that after each multi-page PDF the following file is not loaded into the placegun.

  18. Missing or Damaged Links in 17.0.1

    Just opened file created two years ago in InDesign. Links panel shows links ok, but pages show gray rectangles. Replacing the link seems to help, except if the link is a PDF. Those are not working at all. They show up on screen as pixelated, even at high screen resolution setting; but print as gray rectangles.

  19. cms not working correctly in InDesign 17.01

    Images with different RGB colorprofiles look completely different when mounted in Indesign 17 compared to how it works (correctly) in Indesign 16.4.
