  1. Pages palette bug

    Hello,

    You will find a file in the attachment, please open it. Now open the page palette. Now try moving the pages in the correct order of the numbers by moving the thumbnails. You will not succeed!
    I reported this bug over a year ago and it still isn't fixed! (Indesign version 15.5.5)

    Edit: Unfortunately I cannot attach an Indesign file. Please provide me with an email address so that I can send you the file.

    Settings for Dictionary gets reset again all the time.
    I am using "Deutsch Rechtschreibereform 2006" and it gets reset to "Deutsch Rechtschreibeversion 1996". Also the ""-Setting below will be changed.

  3. Some spreads gone grey and only export as blank pages in 15.1.1

    I have a 48-page magazine about to go to print and three spreads have suddenly gone grey - as you see in screenshot. In the Pages panel they appear blank and when I export them - also blank. Getting worried...

    Separately, the "Fit Page/Spread in Window" instead zooms in to 2,642% magnification.

  4. Master Items misssing when used based on page

    Using Windows 7 or Mac OS no matter even it's in preview Indesign CC.

    I found this and very annoying to fix it manually in master page items.

    Steps Created Master Page A for body text pages
    Created master Page B: As a chapter opener. It's based on Master A. Only removed top running header.

    Now applied in pages:
    Left side page : Master Page A.
    Right side page chapter opener and applied Master Page B

    Result: Part of Running Header is disappear in Left Side Page, right side page ok as is.

    Am I missing something. Getting this kind…

  5. caesura

    Hello,

    I would like to suggest for the next version of Indesign to make possible the caesura between two consonants only.

  6. Multiple spaces between words

    No idea just a simple bug report, but first your system places multiple adds in the process of getting to this point. Second I'm not interested in playing games with your process, I do not have time. NOW, here is the problem:

    While copying text from https://www.easa.europa.eu/sites/default/files/dfu/EasyAccessRulesforAirOperations-Oct2019.pdf on the while on the internet and pasting into InDesign I get one or two spaces between the words. I then have to remove the spaces manually. I'm working with a lot of information and do not need to take the time removing the spaces.

  9. ID 2020 15.1 - All text variables (including page numbers) replaced by "ss" text

    Just updated to ID 2020 15.1 and found a bug which makes the program unusable forcing me to immediately downgrade.
    When I open on of my ID documents created in previous version of ID, all of my defined text variables as well as page numbers are corrupted and replaced by the "ss" text. Changing the style has no effect. I can create page number based on the 'Basic Paragraph' style but when i choose any other previously created style, the number changes to 'ss'.
    Even the variable field preview shows 'ss' text instead of variable name.
    The same document opens…

  10. refresh all stories not working correctly

    InDesign 2020 v15.0.3 running on Mac Catalina.
    When I type command-option-/ to refresh stories the refresh seems to go into a toggle mode swapping back and forward between correct and incorrect layouts. Very difficult to know if the correct version is working. Similar to the 2017 bug where table headers disappeared but even WORSE as the usual fix does not work consistently. Have to manually check EVERY page of document before sending to client as layout goes crazy.

  11. New Document Window Zoomed/Cropped

    New document window opens zoomed in.

    Some options for opening a document (right hand side) are not visible and can't be selected as they are off-screen.

  12. IND 15.0.3 - Will not load text on first opening

    Ever since last upgrade to 15.0.3, on the first opening of a file it will either not load the text, or load corrupted text. This is happening to two workers on two different MACs at two different locations within our team. Driving us crazy, having to close and open a file twice in order for it to open properly.

  13. BUG with master text frames, master pages and "allow pages to shuffle"

    Hello,

    Latest Indesign CC on Windows 10 64bits.

    I have a document, with a master page template applied to all pages in the document. There are master text frames inside the master page template, perfectly aligned with the margins on each left, and right page. In my master page template, I have set up the following margins for left pages :

    top : 46pt
    bottom : 46pt
    outside : 56pt
    inside : 46pt

    And the right pages margins set up as follow :

    top : 46pt
    bottom : 46pt
    outside : 46pt
    inside : 46pt

    On the left pages, I…

  14. inserting page

    I'm working on a document which is around 100 pages. so far i was able to insert pages or a spread to the document without any issue but since yesterday, if i'm tryint to insert a page, its getting inserted not in the line of the spread but away from it.
    I'm not sure if the problem is understandable, so i am attaching a few screenshots.
    Asked around to a few colleagues, but no one has faced such issue before.

  15. Page numbering logic

    I don't get why the logic of page numbering is that complicaded in InDesign.

    imagen you would like to show the number of the current and the previous page on the same page.
    You can not simply put those varibles form Markers, saying Current Page Number an Next Page Number on the same page. – That would give you twice the Current Page Number.
    Current Solution: You have to write them into two conected Text fields, which are supposed to be ob bouth pages, that you want to put a number on.

    here my idea:
    Why wouldn't you make a…

  17. None Master issue

    I don't understand how the None Master works. If I create a document with no margin and no columns, then go to the A Master and add margin and columns, sometimes the None Master will delete the margins and columns, and sometimes it seems to adopt the margins and columns from the A Master.

    I would recommend that the None Master ALWAYS delete all the columns and margins so it's a blank page. Or at least consistently return to the columns and margins of the A Master, but blank would be better.

  20. 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…
