  1. Styles for buttons and forms

    It would be nice to be able to create styles for the buttons and forms so you don't have to manually adjust it when your document has heaps of the same fields.
    Even just being able to change the default settings would be useful. I have to waste so much more time having to manually change each field setting.

    Who decided that Minion Pro, 12pt and scrollable was what people wanted?
    Also, why would a checkbox by default be checked, most of the time you want a checkbox not to be checked when creating a form??

  2. Based on paragraph style doesn't show group the style is in

    In Indesign 2020 when paragraph styles are based on other paragraph styles that are within a group, the based on area does not indicate which group the style is in, it only shows the name of the style. Which makes it difficult to know which actual style it's based on if you have multiple styles with the same name that are in various groups. Screen shots of Indesign 2020 attached and Indesign CS6 where it did show the group name in the based on area.

  4. Paragraph Style Panel Not Showing All Styles

    Bug: Paragraph Style Panel does not show all styles, when scrolling I cannot get beyond the 43rd paragraph style, the scroll stops at that point. Multiple restarts and reordering the list by name did not clear the issue. This also appears to be in the Based On Paragraph selection when creating a new paragraph style.

  7. Underline disappears when paragraph shading is used I have a paragraph style for text that needs shading and a character style for text wit

    Underline disappears when paragraph shading is used

    I have a paragraph style for text that needs shading and a character style for text with a hyperlink. The underline disappeares when shading is used. This happens when the height of the shading of the next used paragraph style is touching the underline in the previous paragraph.

    The text remains on top so I would expect that the underline (which is part of the text, in my opinion) should also stay on top.
    Strikethrough is not being affected in this way so I use this as a workaround.

    Latest version of InDesign…

  8. ID2020 Running variable falls back to previous header randomly

    Current version 15.1
    Did not have this issue with previous version, produced 2 reports within a month one before the update and one after. The first one went out fine, the second one have the following glitch:


    • All pages have ONE master page footer including ONE variable connected to a header style - simple and standard, never caused an issue since the beginning of the function's history .

    What happens in the spread:
    Page 1 contains Header 1 and footer refers to H1
    Page 2 contains Header 2 and footer refers to H2
    Page 3 contains no header and footer…

  9. Cannot remove hyperlink from image

    For some reason InDesign has no option to remove hyperlink from an image. It took me hours to search for solution until I gave up and deleted the image and recreated it with a new hyperlink. This is pathetic and needs to change. When you right click an image, we should see "Hyperlink" > "Remove Link". This is so basic, its really upsetting to have to post this here.

  10. Character Style is cleared from copied Hyperlink

    June 26, 2020
    Windows 10 Home 1909
    InDesign 15.1 x64

    When copying text, the Character Style of Hyperlink text is not copied.

    Attached is a video showing the problem:
    ITC Officina OTF [book, bold] are used.
    A Paragraph Style is applied to all text.
    A Character Style is applied to the "portfolio" and "imdb.com"
    "imdb.com" is an active Hyperlink, as per the Hyperlinks panel
    Once copied, the Character Style is removed from "imdb.com".

    Bug happens if the Text Frame is copied, and/or if text is copied and pasted into new text box.
    Bug happens in multiple INDD files.
    Bug happens…

  11. Italic option in variable fonts

    There is no option to change upright/italic in variable fonts.
    With Myriad Variable I always go to an italic preset and then adjust the settings from there. But there should be a option right next to the weight and width scales.

  16. Incorrect German translation

    I have already submitted this issue in 15.3 prerelease branch, but I see it still uncorrected in 15.3 release.

    Paragraph style -> popup menu:

    the word "Nächstes" should be lowercase - "nächstes".

  17. Indesign 2019 not allowing access to styles menu on MacOS working remotely

    When working at home, using only wifi with a booster on a national carrier and MacOS Mojave version 10.14.6, Indesign 2019 (14.0.3 and using Adobe Cloud) does not allow access to styles panel to edit or do anything with styles. When working in-office and using wifi there, I have no problem accessing the styles. At home, Indesign just does nothing forever and I have to hit ESC to go on to do other work, not getting the changes I need.

  18. Anchor object and paragraph settings error

    Hello there.
    I make the carriage return settings in the paragraphs as in the picture. If I put an object per paragraph, it looks like the picture. Texts do not move away from the object properly.

  20. InDesign Script - find/replace - store in a variable what is in "find what", "find format"

    Tested in InDesign, any from CC to CC2020.

    I was needed a script which can store whatever is there in one or more variables the following:
    - the format from "find format",
    - the format from "change format".
    The code below doesn't works if the paragraph (character) style is in a group style.

    var currFindPrefs = app.findGrepPreferences.properties;
    var currChangePrefs = app.changeGrepPreferences.properties;
    //do something
    //reset preferences
    app.findGrepPreferences.properties = currFindPrefs;
    app.changeGrepPreferences.properties = currChangePrefs;
    The variables can't store the style that are in group styles.
    Only those that are outside of any group.

    Please see attached Image.
    Thanks!
