  3. resize

    Just updated to Indesign 2024 (v19), and it appears the method of resizing/scaling an image or shape has changed. But for the life of me, I cannot figure out what it has changed to. Before this update, cmd-shift/drag the corner would resize an item proportionately. That doesn't work anymore. Am I missing something? Thanks in advance.

  4. Auto fit Frame Fitting Options Bugged

    As you can see in the example below the container selected is only 6 mm high if I crop it by -x amount, to have a white border around it, it does not do that consistently through all selected containers.

    With this container it crops a fraction of the actual number.

  5. Document Setup -> Adjust Layout only partially works

    I needed to blow up an A4 design to 2000mm high and the Adjust Layout (see image for settings I used) does not produce the same layout. See attached images.

  6. Tools are now blocking me from being able to close open documents in InDesign

    Since updating to the newest version: V 18.5 the tools bar is now blocking the name and the ability to close down the first document. For accessibility reasons, I need the toolbar to remain on the left without blocking access to the document.

  10. Be able to anchor already created text box

    Use Case Scenario: Create text box, use text box. Realize it'd be nice to anchor already created text box to another text box/object/???.
    Current workflow: copy text, delete text box, find anchor point, insert anchor point, adjust anchor point, create anchored text box, copy text box, further adjust text box.
    Desired workflow: right click on text box/text -> select "anchor to [text/object/???]", anchor to [text/object/???], adjust anchor point settings. No need to redo entire content.

    Why can't this be done? It's always an option for non-text box content boxes/objects, correct? So why can't text box boxes also considered content boxes?…

  11. Line Jumps by Half its Stroke Weight in InDesign CC (Version 18.3)

    In InDesign CC (Version 18.3), there is a persistent bug where a line jumps unexpectedly by half its stroke weight when attempting to change its length. This issue has been present for some time and occurs consistently. Enabling or disabling the scaling options in the settings does not have any effect on this behavior.

    Steps to Reproduce:
    1. Open InDesign CC (Version 18.3) on the affected system.
    2. Create a new document page or open an existing document.
    3. Draw a line with any length and stroke weight.
    4. Select the line to edit it.
    5. Try to change the…

  12. Adjust Layout Moves Locked Guides when "Adjust Locked Content" Option is Disabled

    Locked guides that overlap the page margins move when using Adjust Layout while "Adjust Locked Content" is unchecked.

    Expected behavior: Locked guides shouldn't move when using Adjust Layout unless "Adjust Locked Content" is checked. Unlocked guides should move regardless of the option being checked.

    Steps to reproduce:
    Add ruler guides to a page that overlap the page margins
    Lock guides "View > Grids & Guides > Lock Guides"
    Open "Layout > Margins & Columns"
    Enable "Adjust Layout" and uncheck "Adjust Locked Content"
    Increase or decrease the size of a margin that overlaps the guide

    I haven't found any workaround for…

  13. adjust layout not resizing all pages in file

    Why would Adjust Layout only resize the first 2 (out of 128) pages in my INDD doc? It's only happening on one file. all others resize all 128 pages...as far as I know, the file structures are all identical (they were copied from a master template)...

  14. Why is it so hard to handle type on a path in InDesign?

    Why is it so hard to handle type on a path in InDesign?
    At present is it clumsy, inarticulate and frequently unresponsive. You often can't select the path the type sits on.
    As an example, try putting type on a circle. It is hard to centre and only sits at the top. It's quite common to want type on the bottom of a circle too, especially if you are creating a sort of stamp design.
    In the old days of Freehand, which you own, all you had to do was specify centre, type away, and for text on the bottom…

  15. Presentation Mode makes InDesign window smaller

    InDesign 2023 18.2.1
    Monterey 12.1 Apple M1

    I always work with my InDesign window taking up the full area of my monitor, meaning the window fills the screen.

    After viewing a document in Presentation Mode (Shift+w) and exiting, it shrinks the InDesign window and I have to double click the top of the window to max expand it again. This seems to be an apple silicon only bug as I have an intel mac and don't experience this problem.

  19. Adjust Layout Options - retain object adjustment but lock ruler guides in place

    When ruler guides are locked and the option to adjust locked content is deselected, the guides still move proportional to the margins. There needs to be an option to treat ruler guides as objects are treated, where it's possible to actually lock the ruler guides in place while still utilizing Adjust Layout.
