  2. search text

    BUG/FEATURE: No SEARCH feature for indd.adobe.com documents!
    Details: I'm viewing a wine list for the restaurant Cafe Juanita in Kirkland, WA (URL below). Your indd.adobe.com viewer does NOT have a search feature. Which would be super useful on this 28 page wine list! In addition, there is no download button, so I cannot download the PDF and search it locally.

  3. Adobe Indesign server doesn't indicate license issues

    An Indesign Server setup was no longer running properly. The soap client could no longer connect to the instances.

    However, the Windows Indesign server service was running. There were no errors in the Windows event viewer. Rebooting the service and server had no effect.

    Upon manual startup, errors were displayed stating that the license could not be verified. After opening Internet access, everything worked fine again.

    THIS SHOULD BE FIXED:
    - The Windows event viewer should show license errors
    - The Indesign server service should not be running if there are license issues. It should shutdown again. Why is the…

  8. InDesign Server removes locks from locked layers during opening the document

    Hi,

    We ran into to the following issue on InDesign Server: after opening, saving and closing a document that contains layers that are locked, these layers become unlocked.

    The issue is reproducible on InDesign Server 16.4.0, 16.4.1, 17.0.0.

    The issue is not reproducible with version 15.x and 16.0.0, so it must have been introduced in InDesign Server 16.2.1 or 16.4.0.

    Scenario (on IDS 16.4.1):

    1. InDesign: create a document ‘~/Desktop/local2021.indd’

    2. Create 3 layers

    3. Lock all layers

    4. Save and close the document

    5. Run the script below on InDesign Server 2021 (16.4.1),


    targetengine "session"

    function main()
    {
    try {
    var docFile = new…

  9. 인디자인 밑줄 기능에서, 밑줄 색깔을 정할 때

    현재 인디자인 기능이서

    밑줄 의 색깔을 넣어주는 기능에,

    메뉴의 아이콘을 클력해서 들어가는 간단한 경로로도

    밑줄 색갈을 정할 수 있도록 ,

    기능을 추가해 주시면 좋겠습니다.

    일일이 복잡한 경로로 들어가는 방법도 한가지 방법이고,

    아주 직관적으로 들어갈 수 있는 방법도

    있으면,

    사용자가 사용하기 편한 방법대로,

    찾아서 사용할 수 있도록 만들어 주시면 좋겠습니다.

    고맙습니다.

  11. 인디자인 윗첨자가 들어 있는 indd 파일을 txt 파일로 내 보내기를 할 때

    인디자인에서 윗첨자가 들어 있는 indd 파일을

    txt 파일로 내 보내기를 할 때

    현재는 윗첨자 부분이 구분이 안 되고, 일반 문자로 처리가 되어서,

    txt 파일로 만들어 지고 있습니다.

    이 부분에서도 txt 파일로 뽑아지는 문서에서도 윗첨자로 뽑아지도록

    프로그램이 보완이 되면 더 좋겠습니다.

    고맙습니다.

  20. Indesign exporting PNG, colours look off

    Trying to export some PNGs with RGB colour for web but every time I export the colours look CMYK. Had no issues yesterday, haven't tweaked with any settings since. I saw they fixed the yellow streak bug but maybe now this is a new issue. Anyone else?

    Left, what it should look like. Right, what it keeps exporting as.
