  1. InDesign Stalls when Network Volume Disconnected

    Whenever I have a linked/placed file on a shared network volume (Mac) and I disconnect from that volume InDesign stalls, it doesn't crash, it does usually recover but takes several minutes. This is even if the ID file containing the linked item has been closed. I think this could be fixed.

  2. file menu

    Menu/File dropdown not working. When I try to Save as, Export or Print from the menu, nothing happens. Shortcut keys work, but seemingly nothing in the dropdown. I am using the latest version of Indesign and Apple OS

  3. Very Slow Performance - when opening two documents at the same time

    Is there any solution to this bug:
    InDesign has very slow performance - when opening two documents at the same time.

    Refer to the previous report "Very Slow Performance" that I submitted on June 19th 2020.

    I still use Creative Cloud applications and my InDesign is v15.1.1 x64

    Thanks!

  4. cross-reference bug InDesgin 2020

    I'm working with a 50-page document using the latest version of InDesign (15.1.1 x64) on Windows 10. Cross-reference not only takes minutes to create but also takes that amount of time to update. It's become a useless feature of InDesign.

  6. Deprecated GPU renderer

    I found out today that indesign uses the OpenGL engine on Mac Mojave, despite the fact that Apple no longer supports the technology. Why? Can you fix it to improve Indesign GPU performance, and use it for raster more faster previews, effects like shadows and exports?

    Indesign 15.1.1 , running on Mojave 10.14.6

  7. InDesign performance issues: text tool

    InDesign performance issues (version 15.1.1 x64 - 32GB RAM installed - Win 10 - Adobe Creative Cloud).
    From the previous version the Text tool slows down the program considerably; it is not possible to work with at least two open files (I work with multiple open files, never a problem).
    So the work is very slow !!! Please provide a solution. Thank you!

  8. False state with app.gpuPerformancePreferences.enableGpuPerformance if no GPU available

    Function GetEnableGPUPerformance() of interface IGPUPerformancePrefs of GetExecutionContextSession()->QueryWorkspace() returns true in case no GPU or a not supported GPU is installed on your macOS computer.

    To reproduce launch InDesign CC 2018 or later with modifier keys command, option, control, and shift pressed and confirm resetting the preferences.

    If you now check the setting either with some C++ code, or ExtendScript "app.gpuPerformancePreferences.enableGpuPerformance", in both cases the returned result is true , which is not the expected result.

    When you now choose Preferences > GPU Performance the properties are shown deselected and disabled, which is correct. If you now click in "OK", the…

  9. Not able to work on more than one document in InDesign 2020 on Windows 10

    Folks,
    Please vote if you have the same issue:

    I can't work anymore on more than one packaged doc containing 'Document fonts' folder in each package in InDesign 15.1.1.
    Moving frames, selecting text in the frames or switching between two (blank) docs causes an unacceptable huge delay what makes efficient work impossible.

    Performance got worse and worse since 15.02 / 15.03 / 15.1 already. Removed ID completely, as well any plug-ins or font management software. Bug occurs on three independent Win10 machines using 15.1.1.
    I'm currently working on ID 15.01 which is the only version I can work in still…

  12. CEPHtmlEngine Helper

    macOS Catalina 10.15.5. and InDesign. 15.1.1.

    Massive problem with CEPHtmlEngine Helper. After a while, my MacBook Pro fan is running high and in the activity window, CEPHtmlEngine Helper is running between 90 and 100%. It is no fun to work with a system that runs crazy.
    Why? Solution needed.

  13. Either the file does not exist... ERROR

    I've noticed a pattern when clicking on one of my recent file icons... I use two different cloud storage platforms, Dropbox and Sync. Both services are accessed from local folders on the same external hard drive. When trying to open one of the recent DROPBOX files from the Recent start page, I get the dreaded 'Either the file does not exist...' error.

    BUT, when I follow the same process with one of the SYNC files, it opens with no issues.

    ALSO, I can open files from EITHER service using the File > Open Recent method.

    So... could the problem somehow…

  14. MacOS Save As dialog box bugs: escape key not closing, file name highlight bug

    Escape key no longer closes Save As dialog box (macOS Catalina, InDesign 15.1.1), AND file name is no longer highlighted correctly -- it either isn't highlighted at all, or incorrectly includes the extension.

    This behavior is different from 20+ years of using Adobe products. Please Fix!!

    Escape key DOES close the Export dialog box, so it is OBVIOUSLY a bug. Else, why would it be designed inconsistent behavior, hmm?! (looking at you, UX team)

  16. dropbox sync font file issue

    InDesign 15.1.1 creating font sync issue with Dropbox where it repeatedly changes the AdobeFnt22.lst file again and again while Dropbox tries to sync the file folder. This causes the editing process to be exceptionally sluggish and unresponsive when attempting to edit files saved to Dropbox folders. This does not happen on files saved to local drive (e.g. desktop) only Dropbox folders, and only in the most recent update. Previously it has not been an issue.

  17. Slow performance - spinning wheel - AdobeFnt22.lst

    Hi Adobe, we are still having major issues with a lot of spinning wheels in InDesign version 15.1.1. because of the AdobeFnt22.lst files that are created with every document. Basically when we open a document it resyncs/updates the AdobeFnt22.lst file of every document that was previously worked from that Mac. This is causing a lot of network traffic and spinning wheels in InDesign. The problem is fixed if we restart the Mac or rename the "Document fonts" folder so that InDesign no longer uses the fonts so does not create an "AdobeFnt.lst" file. Can you please sort this out, it…

  18. Indesign screen doesn't always refresh

    This happens to me since long, first time I report it here:
    Working in a document of ± 40pages. When I change the para style of one or more paragraphes, Indesign can't keep up the screen display with this change and shows the old AND the new situation at the same time on the screen. When moving to a new spread and going back to this page, MOST OF THE TIME it's alright. But very annoying. This has been happening at least since versions 2019.

    Using iMac 2015, 24 GB RAM, latest macOS, ID 15.1.1

    PS: this bug-page is also…

  19. Jumping to wrong tabs

    Hi, when I try to click on the File menu, it keeps jumping to Window instead. That goes for any menu item I try to open. I'm using the 2018 version of InDesign on Windows.

    Thanks

  20. Deleting Preference files

    I crashed when I boot up and the message says I need to delete the Preferences files but Alt-Ctl-Shift doesn't show the expected Preferences file message upon startup. Is there another way to delete Preference files?
