  2. 'Justify All Lines' Not Working Properly

    The 'Justify All Lines' paragraph option does not work properly when applied to objects within a text frame. The attached example image should help to explain.

  3. Problem with variable fonts letter tracking


    1. Adobe Indesign 15.1.2


    2. There is a problem with letter tracking in variable fonts (please see attached photo)
      I've tried two licensed variable fonts and it occurs with all of them
      (Myriad Variable & 29lt Bukra Variavle)
      I've not changed the default values for letter kerning nor tracking.


    3. Expected results: I expect the text to have the correct letter tracking


    4. Actual results: bad letter tracking (please see attached photo)

    5. Test file: screenshot from my indesign.

  4. Textgröße, Kerning etc. im vorgesehenen Menüfeld nicht mehr frei wählbar - Feld ausgegraut

    Hallo,

    seit geraumer Zeit gibt es immer wieder ein Problem in Indesign, welches in Foren meist mit der Hilfe "Caches & Preferences löschen" kommentiert wird. Aber keiner hat je eine Erklärung gefunden oder die Entstehung des Problems lokalisiert.

    Folgende Situation: Man möchte die Schriftgröße, das Kerning, die Laufweite oder sonst etwas in den dafür vorgesehenen Feldern in der Menüleiste ändern - und diese sind plötzlich ausgegraut und können nicht geändert werden. Eigentlich sind sie hellblau und man kann einen beliebigen Wert eingeben.

    Ich habe gerade herausgefunden, an welcher Stelle, in welcher Situation Indesign so reagiert. Es liegt an der Einstellung,…

  5. Stroke Drawing Order | Row Strokes In Front issue

    Hi everyone,

    I'm facing a problem in indesign and I assume this should be reported as a bug unless someone has a solution to it, so…

    I work with a lot of tables, and sometimes, for more lisibility, I have a insert "gutters" to table columns (actually it's white right strokes on my cells), sometimes it's just the client who wants them everywhere on tables. Anyway, there's a great feature in table styles that let me decide whether the row stroke is above the column stroke or the other way.

    it works perfectly when choosing Column Strokes In Front, every…

  8. RTL quote reverse

    The right and left single and double quotes (U+2018, U+2019, U+201C, U+201D) are displaying (and outputting) reversed in InDesign 14 and 15 when bringing in RTL text. I see no way via a style or setting to fix them, I can only use the wrong ones to make them look correctly. It is not only difficult to fix, but it introduces an opportunity for error, means I am editing the text supplied by my client (something that is very bad policy for us), and makes my file underlyingly inaccurate for archiving.
    In the attached screenshot, you can seen the the…

  10. Right-to-left

    Text setting RTL text in Adlam is completely usable in ID 2020 and ID 2020 ME. It used to mostly serviceable in prior editions. Postional forms are incorrect with the initial forms becoming medial and final forms becoming initial. In addition, the cursor is always on the wrong side of the letter making marks failing to attach correctly. Finally, text cannot be selected at all.

  11. Paragraph bottom border overlaps the text

    As I mentioned here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign/paragraph-bottom-border-overlaps-the-text/m-p/11348398?page=1 the issue occurs when I set a paragraph style with a border and additionally anchor a text frame at the end of it. The border overlaps each time changes to text are made (additional lines, adding a page, deleting a page – everything that causes the flow of the text).

    Some similar issue was reported here https://indesign.uservoice.com/forums/601180-adobe-indesign-bugs/suggestions/38784706-footnotes-in-paragraph-borders-style by swapan.

    InDesign version ID 2020 15.1.1 and PR Installer (15.1.2.221) on Windows 10. The problem occurs since I have started using a combination paragraph border + anchored text frame (more than 8 month ago). For testing I…

  12. automatic resizing of text frames doesn't work properly with text variables

    I have a text frame containing just a single text-variable. The text frame is set to horizontal size adjustment. If the varibale is shorter than the text frame then the frame is resized properly. If the variable is longer the text is being squeezed together. The frame stays as big as it was before.

  13. Czech Winsoft dictionary is broken: all lowercase words are marked as misspelled (CC2020)

    The spellcheck of Czech text is not working correctly if you select Winsoft dictionary in all versions of CC2020: it marks all words starting with lower case letter as wrong and recommends capitalising ALL words. Unfortunately the Winsoft dictionary is the only option for Czech language as both Hunspell and Proximity are really bad.
    1 Type Czech text
    2 Set Winsoft dictionaries in InDesign preferences
    3 Run spell checker
    4 All words in lowercase will be marked as misspelled (each word is treated as if it stands at the beginning of a sentence)

    Expected result: see CS6, Winsoft dictionaries work…

  14. Text rendering bug – the edited text is rendered over older version of the text

    I work on a book. While editing the book, I face constant rendering issues: the updated text is rendered on top of the unaltered text. It happens irregularly many times a day. The problem is not document oriented nor platform specific. I started to make screenshots in March and the bug is still present.
    It is very annoying. The only solution is to switch to Selection tool and the change select the Text tool. If you seriously edit a document and you face rendering bugs every five minutes, it is pain **********.

    There is a bug by adding linked xlsx-files to InDesign when the cell in Excel contains a formula which returns text. There is no issue with numbers.

  16. optical margin alignment and index entry

    I have optical margin alignment turned on. When I add an index entry, if the line it is in has a margin adjustment on the left side, then the right edge of the line becomes indented the same amount as the adjustment. I am currently using ID 15.1.1, but I have seen this error since at least CS 6.

  17. GREP match expressions with endnote marker doesn't work correctly

    Some GREP match expressions with endnote marker don't work. For instance:

    (?<=~U)(.|\r|\t)

    returns no result.

    (.)~U

    returns no result.

    The same expressions work fine with footnote marker.
    Error appears in all versions of ID up to current.

  18. Variable Font: top of "U" wiggles as you change weight (FreeType bug)


    1. Download and unzip https://www.dropbox.com/s/3b6k0izkm5ma3dy/200719-AdobeVFBug.zip?dl=1


    2. Install the font from font/DaikonVF-mini.ttf


    3. Run InDesign 15.1.1


    4. Type "AU" and choose the Daikon VF font


    5. Click the Variable Font button and move the weight slider between the extreme locations. Observe how the top of "U" "wiggles" (jumps up and down). This is shown in videos/DaikonVF-InDesign-15.1.1.mp4


    6. The same problem occurs in Illustrator 24.2.1 and I have logged it at https://illustrator.uservoice.com/forums/601447-illustrator-bugs/suggestions/40945024-variable-font-bug-wiggling-top-of-u


    7. The same problem occurs in DTL OTmaster 7.9 and in FontView 2019 (an open source app built from https://github.com/googlefonts/fontview ) — both apps use older versions of the FreeType library.


    8. The problem no longer occurs in…

  19. Tab Palette

    The magnet in the Tab Palette goes to the beginning of the text field. When the text field is too large, it should be able to go to the beginning of the selected text when the text field does not fit on the screen.

  20. Auto-activate fonts tries to activate a font that doesn't exist, forever

    With the new auto-activation of fonts, my InDesign seems to try to activate 'Bureau Grot', which so far as I can tell, isn't an Adobe font. Does it constantly in the background and there's no way to cancel it/tell it it's barking up the wrong tree...
