  1. Crash on object state rename

    This happens to me regularly. With an object selected, I use the button for Convert selection to multi-state object from the Object States panel. If I then try to rename the states, InDesign immediately quits. Reopening InDesign takes me back to just before I created the MSO.

    I've learned to save immediately after creating MSOs and then rename states. That's my workaround. I thought it would be good to mention though, as it seems related to the old inability to rename states bug that was fixed.

    I'm using ID 19.4 on MacOS Sonoma 14.4.1

  2. when importing documents from Word and mapping to paragraph styles

    Everytime I start mapping styles on import InDesign crashes. This is taking up too much time, I have tried exporting/saving the doc as an rtf etc but to no avail. I am running Sonoma 14.4 on a brand new Macbook Pro 16"

  3. InDesign becomes non-responsive

    Since updating to 19.4, InDesign often becomes non-responsive during normal work. UI items become grayed out and I have to click on document tabs multiple times to switch documents. I cannot edit things – nothing happens when I click in a document. I have to save documents (thank goodness that still works) and restart InDesign to get it back to normal

  4. Version 19.4 Persistent error dialog "RM: error creating temporary record definition sheet"

    On iOS 13.6.6. Problem began after updating to 19.4.

    As soon as I create a new document or open an existing doc, the error dialog above appears, and reappears immediately when dismissed, preventing any further work.

    Version 18.5.2 on same machine still functions as normal, but is not not an acceptable long term workaround due to lack of current plugins.

    I've already tried deleting /Users/{me}/Library/Caches/Adobe InDesign/Version 19.0 folder. Folder was recreated at application launch, as expected, but did not resolve the error.

  5. Text selecting freeses program

    Today I updated InDesing to 19.4 It is no longer possible to work - every time you mark the text block, the clock starts spinning and everything hangs. ****, why publish an update without testing it well and thus hinder our work. I was forced to install version 19.3 back.

  7. About InCopy pop-over window unable to close

    In the process of looking up the InCopy version number for another bug report, I opened the About InCopy window. This opened on my second screen and will not clear. There is no exit button, ESC does nothing, clicking it does nothing, clicking the links changes the content of the box but doesn't open any other options, clicking away from the box sends it behind the current window but does not close it. I cannot use InCopy as it is unresponsive underneath this pop-over box. The box can be cleared by closing out of it in Alt+Tab gallery, but the…

  11. Crashes when changing font, copying text and saving as another file type

    I have been tryin to open one of my 'old' Indesign files (2017). At the time I used Cross-References plugin DTP tools. I no longer use it. It keeps populating a notification that the plugin is missing, but it still opens the INDD document. I have tried saving the document—
    1) as an IDML document and that does not work.
    2) I have also tried saving as a new document but the issue remains the same.
    3) I have tried copying the text from it to a new INDD document, it crashes every time and I have sent crash reports.…

  13. Computer: Mac Sonoma 14.4 Indesign: 14.4 AMFID and TRUSTD

    Yesterday I updated both Mac and Indesign. Today I regret.
    When autoflowing a very large file (which yesterday would have taken around 10 minutes) - now it runs for hours.

    Strangely I have noticed that while the delay is happening in Indesign - amfid begins to take 64% of my CPU on the Activity monitor. trustd runs around 24-27%. Indesign is running 9-10%. Once I shut down Indesign or the task finally completes, but amfid and trustd disappear from the activity monitor. Could this be the source of the delay. This is truly keeping me from my work.

    glitch
    My indseign starts glitching as soon as I move a picture or make a frame. It goes half black or fully purple and blue. Its impossible for me to figure out how to fix it. I've tried restarting the app. But that doesn't matter. I don't have any problems with the other apps.

  17. iCloud

    When opening files stored on iCloud, most of the time InDesign freezes/crashes (spinning beach ball forever). The file usually opens, but then freezes once you move the cursor around a bit or try clicking a menu, etc. I've tried opening the same files saved to my local drive with no problems. The links in these files also reside on iCloud. If I download the InDesign file first, sometimes it doesn't crash. However, if I have links to update, I have to make sure to update each of them first or InDesign crashes.

  18. Not opening

    I keep running into a bug where InDesign won't open. I click the application, get the first loading screen, and then it disappears and closes. I've tried restarting my computer but the issue persists. The only way I've found to fix it is uninstalling and reinstalling the program. It's a pain to have to do it everyday though.

  20. Adobeフォントを600個近くアクティベートしていると起動はするがフリーズ状態になる

    adobefontのアクティベート数が現在700個あります。
    この状態でInDesignは起動はするがフリーズ状態で操作を受け付けない。
    30分放置しても変化なし。
    adobeサポート側では「フォント数が多いと起動できない」と言われましたが、確かにadobeフォントの同期を無効にすると使用できます。
    フォントもadobeフォントをアプリ上でダウンロードできる。
    しかし、premiereではテキストスタイルに登録したフォントが書体が分からずアプリ上でもadobeフォントを検索できない。
    フォントを多くアクティベートしていても使用できるように改善を希望します。
