  2. "Büyük/Küçük Harf Değiştir"

    Sayın Adobe Yetkilisi,

    ÖNERİ:

    "Karakter stilleri" ve Paragraf stilleri" ayarlarında, "Büyük/Küçük Harf Değiştir" seçenekleri olmalı. Stillere verebileceğimiz "Büyük/Küçük Harf Değiştir" ayarları ile işimiz daha da kolaylaşacak.

    Teşekkürler, iyi çalışmalar...

  3. Stroke Style not working

    When creating a line, the drop down menu on the side bar or in separate window does not work. The style options will not open, no ability to change the line style. I have restarted InDesign, and tried new files, it doesn't work.

  4. Bug with paragraph borders across multiple textboxes.

    1. Version of Adobe InDesign, InCopy or InDesign Server
      17.0.1 x64

    2. Steps to reproduce the issues
      Link some textboxes, fill boxes with text, and apply a paragraph border to all (or a large amount) of the text.

    3. Expected result
      If "Display Border if Paragraph Splits Across Frames/Columns" is unchecked, there should be no paragraph border from one column to the next regardless of whether or not a paragraph concludes at the bottom of the textbox.

    4. Actual result
      If a paragraph begins on one textbox and concludes on the next textbox, everything works as it should. However, if a paragraph finishes at…

  5. InDesign CC2023 forces paragraph in overset

    Since the update to InDesign v18.0 (CC2023) the first line of a Paragraph with custom Bullet (Numbering) text, gets forced in overset when the first word is longer than 8-9 characters. They don't flow to the next paragraph and there is still enough space to keep the word in the Text Frame.
    In the example you'll see two Text Frames with one with the word "Duurzaamheid" cut in two and the second in overset with no space between "Duur" and "zaamheid" wich forces everything in overset. In InDesign 17.4 everything works as desired. Uploading an InDesign-file was not possible so…

  6. optical margin alignment

    Optical Margin Alignment does not work in a tabbed hanging indent, but it should. In the examples provided I want the copy quotes to be offset by the optical margin alignment, but they are counted as a character and disrupt the look of the hanging indent (example 01). If I move the hanging indent to the right side of the quotes it fixes the problem for the current paragraph, but the next paragraph aligns with the tab and quote, not with the above hanging paragraph (example 02).

  7. GREP Tab Issue

    I created a GREP style to make Title Caps part of the style and I needed it to do this after a tab. That wouldn't work, but I got it work backwards.

    An unexpected side effect is that when you copy and paste from the PDF I created, it makes every letter next to "T" also capitalized. It's treating the shortcode for tab "\t" like it's trying to hone in on "T" and also like tab. It looks fine until you copy and paste.

  8. When using “Paragraph Borders and Shading” on a frame grid, it is incorrect to base them on the grid attributes possessed by the frame grid

    InDesign Version CC2018 or newer

    1. “Paragraph Borders and Shading” are usually generated based on the outline of the glyphs in the paragraph to which they are applied.
      This is true even if they are grid-aligned on a text frame (Figure 1-a, right).
      However, when the same settings are made on a frame grid, for some reason, they are generated based on the grid attributes of the frame grid, not the glyph outlines.
      This always occurs based on the grid attribute of the frame grid, regardless of whether the text in the frame grid is grid-aligned or not (Figure 1-a left).…

  10. bug: stroke and fill not showing / error

    Fill and stroke is not showing when I create a shape / use a template that already has a shape in it.
    Additionally, images held in frames with those effects don't show correctly - when opening a file the placeholder frame which has an image in it will then show with a. white fill over the image, and no stroke effect.
    However, when you export as a .pdf all the file looks fine.

  11. disappearing text paragraph style

    I am using InDesign 17.4 under macOS 12.6 on an iMac Retina 5K, 27", 2017 with a 3.4 GHz i5, 32GB RAM, and a Radeon Pro 570.

    When I attempt to create a new paragraph style with an active text selection and check 'Apply Style to Selection', any change I make to the new paragraph style, including simply naming the style, renders the text invisible.

    The expected result, of course, would be to have visible text.

    The actual result is invisible text.

    Relaunching ID, restarting the computer, and rebuilding the preferences file all had no effect. The only workaround I…

  12. Character style with one attribute "medium" not displaying properly in properties of the style

    InDesign 17.4

    Step 1: choose character style "none"
    Step 2: create new character style
    Step 3: open new character syle and change "Basic Character Formats → Font Style:" to "Medium"
    Step 4: navigate to the "General" tab: the "Style Settings" area shows "[None]" but should display "[None] + Medium"

  13. avoid incorrect sentence breaks

    Hello, on your next in design update, I suggest an improvement that would be very useful for correct typographic formatting! For the formatting of a flagged text, it would be nice to be able to prevent line breaks before a two/three letter word, to avoid that the pronoun is separated from the subject (ex: "the" (line break) "house", to have "the house" on one line. I hope you will be able to add this feature, which I think is essential. Thanking you for your help

  14. When changing (only) the color in the character style the text is changing from place

    When changing (only) the color in the character style the text is changing from place. Indesign version 16.4.2, MacOs Mojave 10.14.6
    When I do this by hand there is no problem. For me this is a huge problem because it is the link color in my whole document.
    I am a user of Indesign from the beginning (1.0). I looked and tryed many things and it was never a problem. Hope you can help!

  18. Style mapping no longer seems to work between Word and InDesign

    Previously I was able to import Word (v16.62) documents into InDesign and map its Paragraph Styles to my INDD template's Paragraph Styles.

    In the latest version of InDesign (17.2.1), this does not seem to work, and the Paragraph Styles only come in in a single style.

    I have gone back and tested this using old files, which previously worked, but they now do not work: the Style Mapping doesn't seem to register at all.

  19. Paragraph styles removed when importing docx files while doc files retain styles correctly.

    Using the latest InDesign 2022 (17.2.1) for Mac (The Middle Eastern version--the one that shows English and Hebrew), both on an M1 Mac mini and a late 2015 iMac running Big Sur.

    Import a docx Microsoft Word file into an InDesign file (tried with blank new document as well as one of our templates) with the import settings set to bring in all styles.

    The file is imported but the import has stripped all styles from the document.

    Resave the docx file as a doc file.

    Import new file into ID, which results in all styles being visible as is…

  20. Redefine Character Style not available

    When changing the parameters of a selection that has a Character Style applied, the 'Redefine Style' should become available in the Character Style's contextual menu. But unfortunately, this is not the case.
