  2. Tell (X,Y) values of specific table cells

    When I have tables in a document, I often have to lay text boxes over specific cells to achieve my desired result and it would be helpful to have a way to know the specific (X,Y) values of each cell so that I can line the relevant text box up appropriately.

  4. crash

    InDesign version info attached (Mac OS 10.15.7).

    I've been dealing with persistent crashing while trying to open ID files. For certain files, the beach ball of death appears for an extended (and sometimes endless) period, at which point I force-quit and open the file again. On the second attempt, the file always opens properly. This happens with most, not all, ID files — so I literally have to restart ID 30+ times a day. No fun.

    I've reset preferences and even reinstalled ID from scratch, but no luck. One thing I noticed is that if I move the ID file…

  5. Problem with *.wmf files in InDesign 16.3

    I've got a file with many equations created in MathType, exported as *.wmf files and placed in Adobe In Design. Until today everything was fine. But after a new update to version 16.3 all my equations were destroyed. In the attachment I'm sending the same page exported to PDF before and after update. Please help me.

  6. Type 1 font warning

    The type 1 font warning pops up at inappropriate times. If you open docs with type 1 fonts and docs without type 1 fonts and then close the type 1 docs, the warning remains for the valid doc. Close the valid doc and reopen it to make the warning go away.

    Found an OTF font misidentified as Type 1 font when exporting to Acrobat Pro. Not sure if it is a font issue of a program bug.

  7. Layer hidden by top layer

    I have a layer with text and images and then a layer below it will squares of solid colors. Whenever the text layer is visible and on top, the colors cannot be seen despite there being areas where they should be completely visible. The text box is set to transparent as well. When I move the colored squares to the text layer they can be seen. How can this be fixed without having the squares be moved to the text layer?

  10. Issues with MacOS custom keyboards and InDesign

    The users have InDesign V16.1 installed on macOS Big Sur (11.4).
    They use custom software keyboards (created with Ukelele) to type Native American language characters (Salish via IPA). They use custom fonts that have the required glyphs for the language. OpenType marks are used for composing characters. The fonts are both Unicode and OpenType compliant. Frequently a properly composed character will consist of a primary glyph (such as "K") followed by a combining glottal and a wsuperior. If each key of the custom software keyboard has only a single unicode code point assigned, everything works fine. However, if the custom…

  12. In a document imported from word, endnote links don't work.

  13. Uservoice shows error message and creates double posts

    I've klicked on publish button and got a error message at my last post.
    I thought maybe it's a problem with the size of the attachment, so I've tried an other file and got no problems at publishing.
    Now I've seen, that the first two attempts, that were stopped by a error message of this system here, were published too.
    So fyi, I didn't want to make a double or tripple post.

    Maybe you want to take a look at this behaviour too.

  15. index marker grep bug in findchangelist

    The prelisted double to single space query in the findchangebylist.jsx also delets index markers between spaces.

    While using the find-exchange window in ID to first look for [space]+(~I+)[space]+ to exchange it with [space]$1 works well enough, putting this in the findchangelist.txt, it deletes the index markers aswell. (note: [space] is only to visualize a regular space. I'm not writing it out in my queries.)

    I also noticed, that they also only partially work in the regular GREP search in the F/E-window: using lookahead or lookbehind is only able to find the position of the marker but not the character that…

  16. windows long paths not supported

    InDesign fails to open or place files with long paths in Windows. The "Long Paths Enabled" registry setting is enabled (i.e. it is set to 1). The problem affects several functions:

    1. From Bridge, Place > In Indesign causes "Script Alert: Error: Expected a reference to an existing File/Folder"

    2. DataMerge in InDesign: images with long paths are skipped, i.e. aren't merged. There is no error message.

    3. From InDesign. I cannot manually place a file with a long path through the “Place” dialog box. The dialog box will display the folder and thumbnails, but when I click the image to place it,…

  17. Letter "a" does not appear

    I was configuring Indesign Preferences on a new document. Suddenly, the letter "a" stopped working. I mean, I can't write a single word with the letter "a".
    Tried to open older documents, and the letter appeared when I pressed the button!

  18. sticky rollover state on form checkboxes and radio buttons

    I'm having an issue with checkboxes and radio buttons. I have a normal, off, rollover, and on state. The off state is 70% paper fill, the on and rollover states are slightly larger graphics with 100% fill and drop shadows, and the on state also has a green fill.

    When exported to interactive pdf, the rollover state sticks and stays even after mouse out, causing the off state to rest on top of the rollover state. If I continue to mouse over the element, the drop shadow will get thicker and increasingly darker until black.

    I'm using InDesign 16.2.1 on…

  19. index bug

    Hi, I've got a large book which I'm indexing. I need to index our product codes alongside indexing normal reference - two examples are PBR030SETK and PBR30SETK. When I reference both of these (separately) the index automatically adjusts the second reference to match the previously indexed reference eg if I tag PBR030SETK that works fine, but then when I tag PBR30SETK it adjusts the reference to be PBR030SETK, but they should be appearing as two separate references. I typically tag product codes with a $ first, but it has the same glitch whether the dollar sign is tagged in the…
