  1. character size

    Hello,
    I have an issue with the size of some panel. For example, the "paragraph" one and the "character" one are oversized, they are too long and I can't reach the end or even redimensionized it. How can I fix that?

  2. Trackpad scroll issues with InDesign v15.0.2 on new MacBook Pro 16" 2.4 GHz 8 core processor 64GBmemory. .

    InDesign v15.0.2 Trackpad is not scrolling well on new MacBook Pro 16" 2.4 GHz 8 core processor 64GBmemory. I just upgraded my equipment to top of line MacBook Pro. and bought the subscription to Adobe all apps. I have been using 2013 MacbookPro with CS6. My files are unresponsive in Indesign. I typically collage with 600+ photoshop images to make is single design on multiple pages. On my old system I was not running into problems except new OS was incompatible with CS6.

    This is unacceptable. I called Adobe and they were not helpful.

  3. Power Efficiency

    Since I've moved to working remotely entirely, I've noticed how quickly using several Adobe programs burns through my laptop battery. I'm running a brand new 16" Macbook Pro with the latest MacOS Catalina version, and I'm lucky if I get an hour and a half of battery life while running InDesign and Illustrator at the same time. When I review what is using the most battery life, my Mac lists InDesign, Illustrator, and Core Sync as the main culprits.

    Now, I understand that these programs at times are fairly graphically intensive, but the battery life I'm getting is absymal, and…

  4. Increase the size (thickness) of the ruler guides

    Hi,

    Give the possibility to increase the size (thickness) of the ruler guides (all the time / when hovering over the ruler guides or using a shortcuts). This would be present in the software preferences. It's not always easy to see them well. Thanks.

    Bye.

  5. Slow

    Ever since these latest updates to InDesign, the performance is slow even with Display Performance set to Fast. I looked through the RAM and made sure no other settings were making it lag. I've uninstalled and reinstalled with no difference in performance. There shouldn't be a need to update InDesign so frequently, I've used Adobe products for over 10 years and these updates are making the usability go backwards.

  6. InDesign Performance Issues

    Fix the bugs with InDesign 2020.
    One problem is the Window-Interactive-Media does not work. Media Settings Window does not show up 95% of the time. When it does you cannot change Media settings.
    There are more problems than this in InDesign 2020. Poor release.

  7. Cross-Reference won't save a <cs style="stylename"></cs> format. It just strips the tag out of the data.

    Before updating to the latest version of ID, I would get an error each time I tried to use the <cs> tag to format a cross-reference. It wouldn't let me save the data.

    Now it lets me save the data, but it just strips the tag out.

    I have a character setting called Bold.

    I defined a cross-reference format as:
    <cs style="Bold"><fullPara /></cs> on page <pageNum />

    I save it, and I click OK. Then I reopen the format page, and it says the following:
    <fullPara /> on page <pageNum />

    It's like the tag never existed. No matter what…

  8. Spellcheck

    Spellcheck in InDesign 2020 build 15.0.2 doesn't work. It acts like it is working, but it never finds any misspellings. I noticed it yesterday when I sent an article to the proof reader and it came back with errors InDesign should have detected. I purposely put in misspellings, but InDesign found no spelling mistakes.

  10. story editor cursor block cursor disappears

    InDesign 15.0.2 on OS X 10.14.6 on a MacBook Pro with an external display.

    Go into Preferences and set the story editor cursor to "block," the fattest size.

    Put the cursor toward the righthand side of a longer line, and use the arrow keys to navigate the cursor up and down.

    The cursor should stay visible at the end of the line, as the default cursor does.

    Instead, when the cursor is at the end of the line, it disappears, making editing and navigation by arrow keys difficult.

  11. Version 15.0.2 - Duplicate folder saving to desktop

    After moving a packaged folder from the desktop, if I go back to edit the file it creates a duplicate folder to the desktop with only the contents of Document fonts (which does not include all fonts). Definitely a concern of saving over existing data.

  12. InDesign, InCopy: linked copy and image files randomly broken

    We are a group of 16 graphic designers working on Macs. Our OS are varied between Sierra, High Sierra and Mojave. We work in InDesign 14.03 and 15.02 (with linked InCopy assets), Bridge 9.1 and 10.03, Photoshop 20.0.8 and 21.1, and Illustrator 23.1.1 and 24.1. We work on Box Drive and store our layout files and absolute-linked image assets there. It is critical that we are able to work on each others’ files in a high-volume, high-production environment. We don’t believe this is an issue related to our connection speeds.

    Looking for a resolution to these issues:

  13. Text-fields behave strange after InDesign 2020 update

    Since the release of InDesign 2020 there frequently appears a circumstantial bug, that is not reasonable in any way:

    When i double click (edit) or just copy any text-box, suddenly the content is moving downwards (about 3pt), so that it disappears in overflow text and has to be realigned. It even happens when I copy and paste those Elements or duplicate the whole page, so one of the most fundamental functions became futile (image "Adobe-Indesign-Bug-duplicate.jpg")!

    Additional the maximum height of the box, before the text disappears in overset, isn't depending on the contents height like in older versions, but is…

  14. Major performance issues in 15.0.2 with multiple large documents open

    I'm on a Windows laptop with a Core i7, 16 gb of ram and a dedicated GPU. Up until the 15.0.2 update there was some hitching and slowdown with these large files (and I noticed a weird bug where hitting T to use the Type tool doesn't actually change the tool) but now editing text can take up to 10 minutes with more than one file open. I can't make a screencast at the moment since I had to reinstall 15.0.1 to complete the project on time but the filesize we're talking about is 50-75mb, ~60 pages or so with…

  19. InDesign tries to display interactive help while a script is running

    I've done a fresh install of InDesign and I run a (lengthy) script. InDesign is trying to display some interactive help (and failing to do so) while the script is running.

    Interactive help must be suppressed during script execution!

    The empty help frame stays visible while the script is running.

    This is on Windows 10x64 with InDesign 2020 15.0.1
