  1. Export Jpeg to nas, the file sometimes weighs 0kb

    I have a IMac under macOs BigSur version 11.4 with an Intel processor, the version of Indesign is 16.3.2, when I export a newly created or existing Indesign file in a JPEG format to a NAS, sometimes my files will be 0kb, i don't understand why and it's random.

    I put the screenshots in order so you can see my problem.
    and I don’t have that problem when I export directly to my desktop.

    Thanks

  2. Transparent PNG Export generates dark lines in the half transparent shadow regions

    InDesign 16.2.1

    Trying to export transparent PNG files from InDesign from a page with a transparent PSD source, results in PNG files with dark lines in the shadow region of the exported png.

    When deselect or select the "simulate overprinting" checkbox before export, the lines may disappear and the exported png is as expected.

  5. InDesign jpg Export

    When I export a jpg from InDesign (16.1) (it doesn't matter if I export it in low or high resolution) the exported jpg shows some "glitches". This error occours only if I export pixel images. I can fix this when i copy the content from the InDesign file into a Photoshop file and eyport it from there… but this workaround is pretty annoying.

  6. EXPORTATION JPEG - GESTION DES COULEURS

    • L'exportation jpeg ne tient pas compte des pseudonymes du gestionnaire d'encre.
    • Le résultat de l'exportation jpeg ne tient pas compte non plus du type d'encre utilisée (transparente ou opaque). Le premier point à été résolu par un script, merci de l'inclure dans les fonctionnalités d'Indesign. Le deuxième point n'a pas pu être corrigé, merci de faire le correctif.

  7. PNG Export Quality

    There is a huge difference in the rendering quality of JPEGs vs PNGs in InDesign.

    See attached document that demonstrates the difference between the two formats, exported from the same InDesign document, using maximum quality, 72 DPI with anti-aliasing turned on.

    The obvious differences are the moiré in the white top and the edges of the legs in the girl at the bottom, including the fine detail in the stitching.

    It would be great if the PNG export engine could be improved.

  10. Photoshop and Indesign pixel will not be the same

    Spesso per delle testate online devo esportare dei JPG con pixel e risoluzione definita (ex. 336x576px e 72dpi). Rispettando tutti i parametri le grafiche vengono pixelate, devo fare più passaggi per poter inviare un file accettabile (esportarlo in .EPS portarlo su Photoshop e esportarlo per il web, oppure altri trucchetti) e sembra non esserci soluzione attualmente.
    Questa è stata la "non risposta" di Adobe:
    "Because a pixel has no physical size, and InDesign measures raster images in their physical length, not pixels.
    In InDesign Pixels are a static unit of measurement, and is not related to image resolution—an InDesign page…

  15. On Export - "Save As" name field not consistently highlighted by default

    1. 15.1.3 version
    2. Open InDesign, open file, click on a page, CMD E to export.
    3. Expect "SAVE AS" field highlighted to be able to change export name, as with previous versions.
    4. Sometimes nothing appears to be highlighted, taking hitting TAB several times to get to the "SAVE AS" field. However, sometimes it is highlighted - so this is not a consistant problem - as sometimes it does come up highlighted. It does seem that when I first open a file / export - that it is not highlighted, but after that, it does come up correctly highlighted.

    This is not a…

  16. Export

    When exporting (CC2021, Big Sur) JPG from page to OSX Serve (OSX10.10.5), file size is 0 KB, but when export to desktop file is ok. No matter what JPG settings are. No error message. Other exports (pdf, epub) goes well.

  17. Unwanted dark lines generated around PNG files on export

    Adobe Indesign 2021
    When I export designs using an imported PNG graphic, the finished PDF shows an unwanted dark line around the crop area of the PDF.
    This doesn't seem to happen with jpegs or ai files.

  20. Layered Illustrator File Import

    By activating the layers during import, they are not always displayed in Indesign. This makes it impossible to work with all the files already prepared.
    In the previous version of Indesign everything worked perfectly.
