  1. I work with book interiors. Have been reading about the nightmares designers have had adjusting the margins of text boxes

    I am not a cool millennial but I work with book interiors. Have been reading about the nightmares designers have had adjusting the margins of text boxes once there are several hundred pages and changing the master pages doesn't alter the actual position of the text boxes. Can I agree with the comments attached below -- to you Adobe company people -- don't **** off loyal users who were using Adobe before the millenials were born -- PLEASE STOP taking away features!!!!! I have recently updated to ID2021. Am I still going to have this bug -- as I now…

  2. text wrap

    InDesign 16.1v64
    Text Wrap controls behave different with transformed objects.
    At first I was going to report this as a bug and saw one other post where they were having the same issue but then I realized what is really going on so I'm making a suggestion.
    Look at the Text Wrap for an Image object with the controls unlinked.
    I was seeing the bottom control affecting the right side. And the Right side control affecting another side.
    After some research I realized this was only happening on the images I'd imported and rotated 90 degrees.
    Say there are two…

  3. Extend conditional text

    Conditional text is a nice feature, but only applies to text parts or paragraph. It can be used to show/hide images and tables in flow text, but it also be nice to hide single rows in a table being marked as conditional.

  4. My text does not reach the end of the page and skips to the next page. I've tried several ways and I can't solve this problem. It is a 600-p

    My text does not reach the end of the page and skips to the next page. I've tried several ways and I can't solve this problem. It is a 600-page long document. SOS! Please, thank you

  5. double spaces

    I write a lot in InDesign because i layout in the same time. When writing an rewriting there is often a problem with double spaces since you change and move text. The software tells you when words are used twice but not spaces. That would be of great help because they are difficult to recognice!

  6. Layout adjust badly deforms vector graphics

    Vector images pasted from Illustrator (without any raster effect added) become badly deformed when using Layout Adjust. Parts of the image may become bloated, extended, compressed, text is deformed, rectangles become squares; circles, ovals, parts shift, etc. In short, a total mess

  7. Restore apps bar on the top

    The current ID version is much worse then CS 5.5. You took the options from the apps bar on the top. And now I have to click and click and click to set the option (textframe optionpns, frame options and so on) and I am very angry about that. Please, let them come back. I want to set what I want with one click, like before.

  8. Drop down menu

    The drop down menus are not responding when I hover over. I'm using InDesign 2021 16.01 and have recently updated to OS Big Sur, this is when the issues began.

  9. hyphenation error

    When hyphenating a word like 'Groot-Brittanië' the hyphenated word shows two dashes which of course is not accurate.

  10. bug: empty textbox

    InDesign 16.1 x64, Windows 10

    InDesign wraps text incorrectly when layout adjustments are made. Empty text frames occur. Only when the size of the text frames is changed, they are filled with text again.

  11. Shortcut duplicate is still not working under BigSur on MacBook Air (M1)

    This is a very often used shortcut, so it is quite uncomfortable to work without. When will it be fixed?

  13. alt drag

    Alt + drag doesn't copy anymore, it only moves objects.

  14. Can't wrap the first line of a page

    If I place an anchored image at the very start of the page, the first line does not wrap, it disappears behind the image. One solution in the forum was: Make an invisible line of 0pt. Are you kidding me?

  15. Organize styles per book, not per file.

    Having to synch the styles manually instead of just having the styles available throughout the book is a pain. Also I cannot synch single styles. There is an object style I use for chapter headings, the objects get displaced everytime I synch.

  16. save window so small and compact

    The new version of InDesign's save window by default is small and compact. Why did it change? I work on Server's and very robust paths. it's a pain to always expand the window to just see further down a path to save.

  17. Option bar on Save and Place windows

    Since the recent update to 2021, when I save, export, or place image, the window that opens is so small and there are now options at the bottom that I don't need and the area to select a file is only big enough to see 3 or 4 files.

    Can you make this window larger so you don't have to expand the window size or hide the options every time? It gets monotonous.

  20. Shift and Alt keys not working.

    This seems to happen randomly, but while working on an InDesign doc these keys will stop working and the only fix is to restart my entire laptop. This doesn't really fix anything though because the issue can happen again within minutes of starting back up.

    I use shift and alt a lot to align assets on my pages as well as duplicate certain assets. Among a bunch of other things.

    This happens across all version I use (2019, 2020 and 2021)
