  2. Number 5 does not work Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad

    I have this bizarre bug when I'm typing the number 5 on my bluetooth Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad, the style of my typography changes, and the n° doesn't appear…

  3. Intraktive Felder

    Bugs in den Fomularfelder.
    Schriftgrad steht auf automatisch. Wenn daraus ein Interaktives PDF generiere wird, wird der Text beim überlaufen das Feldes nicht kleiner wie es eigentlich sein sollte, sondern der Text läuft weiter und ist dann nicht mehr zu sehen!
    So kann die neue 15.1 x64 Version nicht verwenden werden!

  4. The app.doScript () statement no longer works since version 15.1.1...

    The script that I am attaching works up to version 15.0 and does not work with the next versions (certainly with version 15.1.1). The error that returns is "Unable to load Adobe Indesign Type Library 1.0" (translated from Italian). It does not seem to me that there are incompatibilities with the app.doScript () statement that generates the error.

  6. Fonts Not Loading

    Font loading is sporadic in InDesign 15.1.1 on macOS Catalina 10.15.5

    Fonts that were working just fine yesterday suddenly won't load. I've cleared caches to no avail.

    This affects InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop... however, Photoshop seems to be hit or miss... sometimes they load, sometimes they don't.

  7. Open recent items gone!!

    Up until the last version of Indesign, we could go File > Open Recent and find files that we've been working on. With the latest update 15.0.2 this has now gone :(

    Now I'm using MORE time going through Finder to find these files!!

  8. Wrong links

    I've noticed that whenever a file with links is duplicated on a different server, the copy will link to the images of the original file instead of the ones in its own folder if it can. If those images are modified in the copy, the changes will also appear in the original links instead of the right ones.

    This is a huge problem, because what the user think is their most recent version of a work might not actually be at all, which can lead to very serious mistakes, and as far as I can tell it's been going on…

  9. qr

    Hi,

    We created a business card for our employee, that includes QR code generated within InDesign. When we tested it with Android it reads everything correctly, but when reading QR code with iPhone, it only reads first and last name and job title. We tested with several different Iphones and everywhere the same result. But when we've tested a similar business card from a colleague, it worked ok. Sending both business cards in the attachment. Daniel Fischer's business card is not working correctly on the iPhone.

    We are using InDesign 15.1.1 x64

  11. page pallet


    1. Indesign 15.1.1 and earlier versions - English supporting Hebrew.


    2. When I create a document with binding right-to-left the page pallet numbers are blurry and hard to read this is not an issue when the document has binding left-to-right. See screen video and screen shot attached.


    I am using Windows 10 latest version, but this has been an issue for many year now

  12. InDesign 15.1.1 English dictionary missing plural word spellings

    Since the update every plural word version is not in the dictionary. Simple, basic words like 'years' and 'days' now show as a spelling error. It was working fine before the latest update. Get it fixed - it's pointless having the spellchecker when so many basic words are missing!

  13. Update to the latest version not possible

    After reinstalling Adobe Creative Cloud and Adobe InDesign CC 2018 (version 13.1) on a new Windows computer, it is not possible to update to the latest version 13.1.1.
    Even with a new installation of Adobe InDesign, version 13.0, no update is offered.
    All update installers should be available for all authorized versions * of the Creative Cloud.

  15. Unable to Save Document

    Indesign 15.1
    Opened file I have worked on before. Added some text. Went to 'undo' an action and couldn't with key command or 'Edit>Undo'.
    Then thought I would try and close out of Indesign and restart to see if that helped. Tried to save file. Could not save file with key command or 'File>Save'.
    Options—Save, Save As, CheckIn, Save A Copy, and Revert—are all grayed out and unusable, as well as many options under the Edit menu as well.

  16. Document Title


    1. InDesign 15.1.1 on Mac. Just updated on 6-24-20.

    2. Open file. Choose File Info. Attempt to type in the Document Title field.

    3. Should see the text I am typing.

    4. Text is not visible on screen. If you type something and then save the file, the text will be there the next time but you can't see all of it.

    5. See attached files.

  17. Share for Review

    Share for Review does not seem to be working even after another update.

    I sent an invitation by "Invite Only". My client received an email with a link and the only 2 options available for my client are "Sign in with an Adobe ID" – 99% of my clients will not HAVE or NEED an Adobe ID.

    The second option is "Enter a password if one has been shared with you." Unfortunately, I was not given the option to set up a password. However, when posting publicly I could.

    And lastly, when I update the file (link), there was no…

  19. Open more than one InDesign file

    InDesign gets really slow after opening more than one document at a time

    The Problem ist, that the Users can open more than one but InDesign get slower an slower, till you have to wait a couple of minutes until you can work on the selected item.
    If we kill the InDesign Process via. TaskMananger an reopen the document, everythings works fine, but this can't be the final solution.
    The problem happens in aller InDesign 15 Versions.
    There ist no performance issue on the Win10 Computers. The Computer is running on 50-70%.
    Anyone got the same Problem and have a…

  20. Language issue

    Is there a way to change the Korean version of this Adobe Indesign to English version. I am a Filipino newsletter lay-out-editor and using the Korean version makes my work totally impossible. Thank you.
