  1. black glitch

    while I move a photo or any text, a black rectangle is created along the entire screen that prevents me from seeing what I'm doing, and it disappears as soon as I stop doing what I was doing

  2. InCopy Templates opening new Document with unique assignments

    This is for InCopy but it would be great to be able to save InCopy Templates that open a new Incopy document with NEW UNIQUE assignments. For example, this would allow you to make an InCopy Sign template that has locked down branding, etc but has editable text fields that can be populated by client and saved off as print pdfs for production. The client could then use the template over and over to create many signs.

  5. File preview bug

    I've upgraded from InDesign v2022 to v2023 (18.0). When I'm saving files after converting them, the preview image disappears where it was saved with the previous version.

  6. Buttons Reverting to Top-Most Destination

    I set up all of my buttons on different parent pages and amended pages based on parent pages, gave them all unique names and set their destinations. They worked perfectly for precisely one export to interactive PDF and then most of the buttons reverted to the top-most destination in the list when I reopened the document.

  7. Cannot select or move anything around

    Can only 'select all' with keyboard shortcut, mouse / trackpad won't work, and then can't move or delete or do anything with selected items since last update. I'm on Mac OS Monterey 12.6

  8. Why does ID now need new filetype with every yearly release?

    I don't remember ID needing a new filetype with every release in the past. A (perhaps cynical) part of me says new filetypes are designed to incentivize users to upgrade. This drive for new filetypes every year seems especially capricious when fundamental new ID features are few and far between over the past 5+ years. (Ex: one of the top billed features last year was renaming Master pages to Parent pages...)

    New filetypes with every release is a source of friction to my team, especially when several users work on a project and one or more suddenly find they can…

  9. QR-Code Generator still Problems with Umlauts in vCards

    In the actual version of indesign (18.0) there is still an issue with internal generated vCard-QR-Code scanned by an iphone. I filed this bugs also two years ago

    In germany there are special Characters called "Umlaute" (ü, ö, ä) or the "sharp s" (ß). If these characters are used in an vCard generated within the buildin function from indesign, they are replaced with other symbols on the iPhone QR-Code-Camera Reader.

    I think this is only a Problem of the used vCard-Version. I think indesign uses Version 2.1 if you would just use Version 3.0 this issue does not appear.

    please…

  10. QR Code Vcards - iPhone read problem

    I created a QR Code for a VCard: Andriod smartphones can read it and add to the contacts, whereas the iPhone standard camera can't read them.

    Are there more hidden items to add for making it work?
    (If it were to be a discriminating factor, the problem was found on Italian iPhones)

  11. spell check is changing the language to Catalan

    Hi there! I've worked in Indesign for the last 20 years and recently there is a bug in the spell-check feature. Every time I run that feature, it starts out in English and then abruptly changes to Catalan which finds every single word to be wrong. I've changed it in my preferences and even restarted my computer.

  13. "Convert URLs to Hyperlinks..." feature does not work with URLs containing accented characters.

    "Convert URLs to Hyperlinks..." feature in the Hyperlinks pannel does not work with URLs containing accented characters. The GREP request for detecting URLs should be updated in future versions of inDesign.

  14. InDesign window defaults fullscreen after escaping presentation mode

    When entering presentation mode (shift+w), and then escape, InDesign windows becomes fullscreen.

    When I come out of presentation view the window size gets forgotten and automatically becomes the size of my entire screen (very annoying to keep having to resize the window all the time, completely disrupts my work flow) It even cuts off the bottom tool bar, which I use a lot.

    I have an M1 Macbook, Indeisgn 17.4

    I have previously posted this and told that the issue was fixed. I followed all instructions and the issue is still there.

  16. custom dictionary

    We had spent a lot of money creating user dictionaries for Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu many years back. The dictionaries that worked with CC 2014 are not working now. I have tried many times and my complaints get closed. I have even given ideas of how to solve the problem, but no response. I

  17. Indesign 2022 menus not working - renders the software ABSOLUTELY UNUSABLE!!!

    Adobe Indesign 17.3 (also happened in 17.4).
    MacBook Pro (M1 2021). macOS Monterey v12.4

    Dropdown menus don't work. If you click, nothing happens, if you double-click the menu appears but, no sub-menus are available. I have uninstalled, reinstalled, tried 17.3 and 17.4, quit, restarted - all to no avail.

    Indesign is unsuable with this bug, this requires Adobe's full attention!!!

  18. Error converting when linking Excel data with a formula returning a blank cell (i.e. "")

    1. InDesign Version: 17.4 x64

    2. When importing data from an Excel document, an error message is received on InDesign whenever the data includes a formula which returns a blank cell (i.e. using IF formula and returning "").

    3. Expected result: All data from range is imported, regardless of whether cells are blank or not.

    4. Actual result: Error message reading: "Cannot convert document. An unknown error occurred during the conversion."

    5. Unable to upload jpeg or GIF (not supported, apparently)!

    Hi Team,

  20. CC Library Issues

    2 CC Libraries bugs since the new update:
    - "Search current library" not working, you aren't able to type anything in
    - When opening the CC libraries window, if you have multiple monitors the window will appear blank, but the thumbnails of all your items in the library will be on the other monitor. Adobe Illustrator does the same. The only fix I've found so far is snapping the window to the other monitor.
