  1. Document Fonts slows everything down

    There is a huge speed / usability problem with text boxes that happens when there is a Document Fonts folder contiguous to the InDesign file. I think it doesn't even have to be a text box with a font from Document Fonts.

    Clicking into or escaping out of text boxes impossible or freezes InDesign. Whole app is super slow, and unusable.

  4. Converting footnotes to endnotes removes inline styling

    InDesign 16.0.1
    macOS 10.14.6

    Currently if using the 'Convert Footnotes and Endnotes' function, any inline styling of the text contained within the footnote is being removed. Eg text which is formatted as italic is being converted into non-italic etc.

    Fortunately this doesn't appear to affect any character styles which have been applied, but it still creates a very high risk of losing formatting.

    Ideally conversion from footnotes/endnotes should not alter the content.

  6. Adobe Fonts: Licensed with Creative Cloud but marked as "not allowed, protected" in Preflight, InDesign

    Please help me: I'm using two fonts for a book soon to be published. I have activated the fonts in Creative Cloud. I work in InDesign. Now a Preflight check tells me that my fonts are "Not Allowed: Protected" (that's the only way to translate that message from Swedish). How do I solve this??? (The fonts I'm using are Minion Pro and Myriad Pro). I thought my InDesign recognised licenses from Creative Cloud. Have I misunderstood this completely? Desperate, please give me clue.. Best Regards, Louise

    InDesign version: 16.0.1
    Screenshots (2) provided.

  7. Text frame indented

    When I move a text frame to the top left corner of a page, the first line of the text is automatically indented. How can I solve this problem? Thanks

  8. GREP search failed to match all text in a story

    We use to be able to search all text in a story by using this (?s).+ code. It’s working fine in CS6. But in CC2019, 2020, and 2021 on both Mac and Windows it will fail to select all text in the story if there is more than ~ 50000 character. Only the first ~ 50000 will be selected.

    This might be related to an old bug that was introduced in 14.0.2 that was fixed in 14.0.3.

    Steps to Reproduce:
    1. Create a document with one story containing more than 50000 characters
    2. Do a GREP Find using (?s).+

    A…

  9. Cannot use bold version of Adobe Caslon Pro in version 16.0.1

    In the 2021 version of InDesign, the bold version of Adobe Caslon Pro does not work. It leaves a blank space, and if you click on the opentype box, it says "opentype properties are not applicable." The font itself is not the problem...I cannot reinstall the fonts because creative cloud tells me they are already there. Caslon and all its versions are also correctly installed in my windows fonts folder. I also cannot export to a PDF when I have the bold version of Caslon on a page. I CAN see, print, and use the bold font in older versions…

  14. text frame anchored causes ID to hang

    I have a text frame (with text wrap, and also an inline image) anchored to a line of text in the main story.

    When I adjust this frame while it is still anchored, it causes ID 16.0.1 to hang. This is the same behaviour as in versions before. No crash report because of ID 'just hanging'. The fix is force quitting.

    macOS 11.0.1. This was also happening with earlier versions of macOS.
    The remedy is: 'Free' anchored object, make adjustments, and re-anchore the frame.

    Added info:
    possible connection: this happens when anchored to text with paragraph shading!

  16. Ongoing Overset Text Error

    No matter where I paste the over-set text in whatever sized text box, that text box will then carry the exact same over-set text error. I click once to paste the text on a page so that it will automatically adjust for space, but still it carries over the same error.

  17. So what about the rest of us who have older Macs and CAN'T update?

    I'm having terrible problems with my latest and only possible update to InDesign v.15.1.2. You can't move the text but only the text box! Are you kidding?

  18. sort register

    The index does not sort alphabetically
    example:

    EPH98002xx ..... 237

    EPH0100121 ...... 223
    EPH0100123 223
    EPH0100161 223

    EPH99001xx should be after EPH0100121
    Please fix

  20. Cross references rendered to big/wrong line break

    Text with cross references isn't rendered correctly. The line break is triggered far to early (see IDML and PNG) image. This affects probably all InDesign Version but was reproduced with CC 2020 and CC 2021

    The line break works with the Adobe World-Ready Composers but not with the Classic Composers.

    I cannot use the World-Ready Composers because of the justified nonbreaking space see https://indesign.uservoice.com/forums/601180-adobe-indesign-bugs/suggestions/41793187-bug-since-cs6-nonbreaking-space-s-issue-wit

    Please fix both bugs!
