  1. Native support for table formulas in InDesign

    I have found countless workarounds for scripts that support formulas in InDesign, but how is this not a native tool?

  2. Latest Indesign update changes text flow.

    InDesign 15.1.1.1 introduces a new error. Text flow in a long document with justified text changes. I am using Mac Mojave 10.14.6. When I reinstalled 15.1 this problem went away.

  3. Fonts won't visibly load, but preflight is green. Close the doc and reopen - fonts work again.

    macOS Mojave 10.14.6
    InDesign 15.1 & 15.1.1

    When a document is open, some of the fonts will not visibly load. However when you go to Type > Find/Replace it shows there are no font issues. Preflight is green and all fonts are listed as "OK". We then immediately close the document and reopen it everything looks fine. When the same document is opened hours later the problem repeats itself.

    Notes:
    • It appears that fonts loaded from the Document Folder ONLY are OK.
    • Fonts that are loaded simultaneously in Font Book and the Document Fonts folder fail to display…

  5. Menu item "Convert footnotes and endnotes" missing

    Although my software is up to date, the option "Convert footnotes to endnotes" is missing from my "Type" menu item (image). The interface is in portuguese, but you can see there are only four itens on the footnote/endnote area, the fifth ("Convert footnote to endnote") is really missing...
    I tried unistalling and installing InDesign again from Creative Cloud but it didn´t solve this issue. This menu item is also unavailable on Edit>Menus...

  7. Kerning Drop Cap Bug // Indesign 2020 (15.11)

    Indesign 2020 (15.11) Adjusting the Space Between my Drop Cap and the Next Letter with kerning doesn't work.

    Nothing happens when i want to adjust the space between the drop cap character and the next character?

    It works just fine just one character further along, and between the character before (The drop cap spans over two characters)?

    So it seems

  8. Type is shifting inside text box upon moving.

    I've been noticing when I use the type tool, I can fill it as normal. Style things with the appropriate fonts/colors but should I move the box it self to a new location the spacing above the font will grow or shrink and shift everything inside that text box. It almost acts like it is adjusting like it has text flow around an image feature selected. Sometimes remove all the styles then re-applying them will fix it but this is issue had been annoying me for maybe the past 2 months.

  9. anchored, free positioned object inside text frame is wrongly wrapped

    And this is old bug.
    1. place a graphic inline at the start of paragraph,
    2. switch on "wrap around" in "text wrap" options
    3. make place for graphic making apriopriate left indent for paragraph.
    Whole text in paragraph is indented reflecting the shape of wrapped object

    This bug was once repaired few years ago, but now it returned.

  12. spell checking for hyphenated expressions

    Spell checking has changed with the most recent release, and expressions which were previously acceptable (and which the Oxford Dictionary of Amercican English thought were correct are now being rejected. For instance: crash-landed.

    The same problem appears with French text, and there the problem is more difficult, as French has lots and lots of hyphenated expressions. "bric-à-brac" is one I've come across already. Le Petit Robert thinks this is correct, and all previous versions of InDesign did too. Please fix. :)

  14. On the latest release the spell checker does not like plurals and some other words - Allows, remembers,

    On the latest release the spell checker does not like plurals and some other words - Allows, remembers, contains, including, appears, asks, adjusting to name a few come up underlined in red since I updated to version 15.1 this morning. I am working on a proofed document and so I now the spelling were right yesterday. I have attached a screenshot to show what I mean.
    Very frustrating as being dyslexic I rely heavily on the spell checking function.

    Also can we also have back the auto corrections for grammar errors - ie missing caps etc, you used to right…

  15. Cross reference anchors are not sorted alphabetically

    When adding a cross reference into the text pointing to a certain text anchor, the list of anchors is not sorted alphabetically. The anchors starting with accented letters are wrongly placed at the end of the list. The alphabet order should respect the language setting of UI.

  17. For text frames with inset spacing and shaped corners, the text frame can auto-size to be much wider than the actual text

    InDesign: 15.0.1 x64
    Creative Cloud: 5.1.0.407

    This behavior varies depending on the combination of:
    - typeface
    - font size
    - corner size
    - inset spacing
    - actual text contents in text frame


    1. Put a few words in a text frame, and keep the text frame selected. I can trigger this easily with Minion Pro, Roboto, and Inconsolata.



    2. In Object -> Text Frame Options:


      • In the General section, set Inset Spacing to some nonzero value.

      • In the Auto-Size section, set Auto-Sizing to Height and Width, and enable No Line Breaks.



    3. Select the text frame with the Selection Tool. Set the corners…
