  3. 15.0.2 Margins & Columns Issue on Body Page 1 (Windows only)

    Version: 15.0.2

    Steps to reproduce the issues:
    I was teaching 3 students on 15.0.2 (all on Windows) how to create a new document. We set up a 12-page file and specified 3 columns and changed the top margin in the New Document dialog box. With the preview checkbox on, body page 1 did not reflect the changes. We could see the bleed and slug lines appearing when defined. We could also see the A in the corner of the the body page 1 icon in the Pages panel, indicating that A-Master was assigned.

    Expected result
    When you define a new…

  6. Need Permissioning for File Access and Edit for In Design File. WE should be allowed to set up security to prevent unauthorized access to

    We should be able to create optional security in terms of file opening, file edit and file save/print fo all In Design Files. Permissions should be able to be modified from remote location, if for example a former employee with previous permissions copies file and takes proprietary template. This should be for desk top and remote server accessed files. Especially Server hosted files. I cannot believe this is not possible. Similar to PDF Files which are password protected. In Design files should have same security feature set as PDFs. This is critical and urgent.

  7. Resize Pages Tool does not work

    The resize pages tool does not work. The page size always jumps back to its initial size. You always have to enter the size manually. Also the resizing from an anchor point of the page does not work properly. Especially elements outside the artboard (for example in the info section) don't place accordingly.

  13. next page doesn't work

    Hi there,

    When inserting Type=>Special Characters=>Marker=>Next page InDesign inserts the CM marker which is the current page. Consequently where I need the next page number to appear it displays the current page number.

    Kind regards
    Mike Howell

    The text frame containing the Next Page Number Marker has to just touch the text frame and the correct page number gets picked. No need to link the text frames together. Just the fact that it touches the text frame will make it automatically pick the correct next page number that the text flows to in the document.

    Hope that helps.

  14. Indesign creates blank pages

    While I type, in some pages, Indesign moves the text to next page, and creates a blank page. With each letter I type the texts keeps moving on from page to page. I live this in several documents with different layouts.

    The version I'm using is 15.0.1, win 10 x64

  15. primary text frames threading is not honored on document pages


    1. Adobe InDesign 15.0.1 x64 (Windows 10)

    2. Facing pages document. I create a master page that includes two text frames per page--creating a two column spread on each page. I designate the leftmost frame as the primary text frame, and then manually link it to the frame just to its right. That frame is then linked to the leftmost frame on the right side page, and that one is linked to the frame furthest to the right. So the frames are linked, from left to right: frame 1 is primary, which is linked to frame 2, then to frame 3 (on…

  16. "Option - Click' to resize page

    Version 15.0.1 Indesign 2020

    When resizing the page, the 'shortcut' of 'Option - Click' to resize the page is now not working. It now just springs back to the size it was.

  17. Can not open new document or a new file I'm working on.

    It happens once in a while. It has no connection to corrupted files.
    The Indesign is open, but the document it self doesn't show! Also if I ask to open a new document.
    Tried Relaunching, Tried Updating to Version.
    It all seems to work as a VOODOO ... Very annoying!
    Is this a bug you have?

  18. Revert Feature

    The 'Revert' feature is greyed out & cannot be used.
    This needs to be corrected.
    It takes extra time to manually put in original dimensions on a document.

  19. Import Word file - cannot set 'Import as Static Text' as Default Preset

    When I import a Word document I want the option 'Import as Static Text' ticked all the time.

    The problem is that if I tick 'Import as Static Text' and make it a new Default Preset, InDesign remembers this until I quit InDesign and then relaunch it. The relaunched InDesign doesn't remember it - it remembers the Preset name, but it doesn't remember to tick 'Import as Static Text'.

    This happens in CC2019 and CC2020. Could you please fix it so that the Preset you make remembers to keep 'Import as Static Text' ticked all the time, even when you…

  20. Save functions unavailable

    I'm using a Mac and running Catalina, have ID 2020. Yesterday, an existing file of 33 pages stopped allowing me to save it. I had no idea it wasn't saving and lost hours worth of work by the time I realized what was happening. I tried starting a new document and pasting the text into it, but same problem. I started a new document again and it allowed me to save immediately, but the second I dropped in text (different text this time), I lost the ability to save the file. I can export to PDF or IDML, but cannot…
