  1. InCopy Export Omits Index Markers

    Hello,

    I have run into trouble on the InCopy export from InDesign with regard to index markers and am wondering if anyone else has the same situation.

    The export of InCopy files from InDesign omits index markers in specific scenarios due to the nature of XML.

    Specifically, if the index marker of a subentry occurs earlier in the text than the main entry, any other subentries after the main entry will disappear when checking in or saving the InCopy file, even if no edits are made in the file.

    The reason for this seems to be that all index markers…

  2. document fonts bug

    Bij gebruik van de document fonts in indesign 15.02 worden bij het afsluiten van de job en het verplaatsten van de order naar de server gedeelte van de ordermap weer terug gezet naar de mac. Dit is alleen te voorkomen door na elke order indesign af te sluiten en weer opnieuw op te starten

  3. Separate the footnotes in a specific block

    Hi,

    Give the possibility to separate the footnotes in a specific block that could be manipulated. It's a good idea, no ? Thanks

  4. "Align to bleed" option in Window > Object & Layout > Align panel

    Hi everybody !

    In Window > Object & Layout > Align... why not also offer "Align to bleed" ? It would be very helpful. No ? Thanks.

    Bye.

  5. document dialogue

    On opening the latest version of InDesign, instead of the usual new document dialogue all I get is a constant circling - see attached. I can only override it by seeting Preferences to Legacy new document which is certainly not as usueful.

  9. Futura Std fonts

    When I use Futura Std in InDesign, some letters [‘a’ & ‘o’ in attached screen shot shift to a tiny, superscripted letter. Other fonts look normal in this same text, and Futura Std does not do this in any other application. Even in InDesign, the problem occurs in some situations but not others.

  11. Workspace

    Initially after using the newest InDesign update for 2020, I tried using my old workspaces. But I found I could have only one document open and working at a time. I would have to open one document, work on it, save, and quit. Then I could open another and do the same thing. Obviously this is not productive, especially when you might need to copy something from one document to another. So, I have been using new and different of the stock workspaces to get me through in the hopes this will be fixed. Thanks.

  12. Problème fonction assemblage

    Avec in Design 15.0.2, lors de l’assemblage d’un fichier : je n’arrive plus à avoir un dossier complet qui regroupe la mise en page , le dossiers de polices et les liens : les liens (images et logos) du fichier ne sont pas intégrés dans le dossier Link alors que tout est bien liés dans la mise en page (les images ne sont pas manquantes).

    Le problème n'existe pas avec la version précédente.

    Pouvez-vous m'aider ?

  13. Missing fonts, spell checking not working with InDesign 2020 build 15.0.2

    There are two bugs with InDesign 2020, build 15.0.2, which make it unusable for me. I have reverted to build 15.0, and the two bugs are not in that build.

    Bug 1 is that often when I export pages as a pdf, or I package the document, the fonts I am using in the document become missing afterward. I need to quit InDesign in order to have InDesign find those fonts again.

    Bug 2 is that spell checking no longer works. The spell checking window comes up, but it never catches any misspellings.

    Reverting InDesign to build 15.0 takes care…

  14. display artifact

    Viewing this document, which is still in draft form, the bleed area contains a dark gray horizontal line across the top and a larger dark gray rectangle near the top of the right-hand side. There are no unseen objects in the design that could be causing this.

  15. Adobe 2020 build 15.0.2 - loses installed fonts

    When working with InDesign 2020, fonts that are installed on the system, go missing especially if I either export some pages as a PDF, or package the file. If I quit InDesign and restart, InDesign finds the fonts and I can work with the document until I do another PDF export or package the file.
    I never had this problem with InDesign 2019 and earlier. It just started with InDesign 2020 and build 15.0.2.

  17. cc2017/18 cannot install on macOS Catalina

    Please enable a version of InDesign CC2017 that can be installed on macOS Catalina. It causes problems for large book files when they have to be converted to newer versions of InDesign. It often takes a long time from start to finish for a book project. When a file is created in one version of InDesign, it should be kept in that same version until it is completed, to avoid unintended errors and discrepancies creeping in. I have many files that originated in CC2017, which I now cannot open on a new machine operating with macOS Catalina.

  18. CC library icons (svg files) not copying over correctly

    Version: inDesign 2020

    When I drag, copy over, or place a linked icon (svg/eps) file from our corporate CC library, it only displays a white box.

    I have asked a couple of coworkers to try the same thing and they don't have any issues.

  20. Ligatures cause ADA compliance issues! Let's have a preference option to turn them all off, globally.

    Please, please add a global Preference in the Advanced Type window to TURN OFF ALL LIGATURES. These are problematic to ADA requirements. This would be just an additional global preference that we could set when we have no InDesign documents open, so that any new documents (after we turn off the ligatures in the preference area) would not have ligatures.
