  1. UI scale don't work for 1080p: or too big or too small.

    UI scale don't work. I'm using 2 screens of 1080p and only allow me 2 options, one too big, so I can't read or use anything on the bottom. The other option show the text and symbols ridiculously small.

    This don't happened with others Adobe software. I'm working on W10.

  2. Using non-breaking spaces and export interactive PDF creates small boxes in PDF

    Using non-breaking spaces and exporting PDF using interactive PDF setting creates small boxes in PDF. Using Adobe InDesign 15.1.2 and macOS Catalina. I have tried multiple fonts in case it was a font issue. This just started happening last week when I did an update.

  3. Rotate pages feature neccesary for Share for Review

    My file for printing has to be horizontal (it opens up, its a calendar), so I rotate the view 90 degrees for working. When I share for review, my coworkers see the file horizontal and cannot rotate the pages on the Acrobat preview, also I cannot rotate or do something so they can view it differently, so our calendar is being reviewed with lots of neck straing.

    Please do something!

  4. Duplicating several pages with ALT moves them

    Dragging several pages of a document with the ALT-key does not duplicate the pages where I drag them, it moves them (without copy). It only works with one page or when I drag them at the end of the document. You should be able to duplicate several pages between other pages with the ALT-key.

  6. 'Reveal in CC Libraries' Doesn't Work

    Selecting a link and clicking 'Reveal in CC Libraries' opens the Libraries panel but doesn't actually find or reveal the asset, which is the functionality I would expect from such a button.

  8. Clipping paths with inset frame only use the main clipping path.

    I have many photos with clipping paths that exactly outlines the garments. When using these against a backdrop, there is a thin white remnant of the white backdrop. To avoid this I can use INSET FRAME on the clipping path.

    But, if I use inset frame, the "internal" paths are disregarded and it only uses the first clipping path.

    I know I should fix the images, but it would take me ages. I have requested the different photographers to make the paths correctly, but they tend to revert to setting the paths at the garment edge. I do not know…

  10. discrepancy with the unit of measurement v15.1.2 on macOS Mojave v10.14.6

    There is a discrepancy with the unit of measurement. Even tho it is set up to inches, the "new document" dialog box keeps the bleed, margins, and gutter in millimeters.

  11. zoom scroll pan

    Make it so Windows version of Adobe programs are capable of all gestures such as zoom and pan/scroll. This works perfectly fine on my MacBook, but on Windows I'm only able to chose if I can scroll/pan or zoom, but cannot zoom and pan. This makes working with the program extremely difficult and infuriating when it's such a simple feature that works in every other basic program.

  13. Even though the book contains three chapters, bookmarks only appear for two chapters

    InDesign 2020 - I have create a multi-chapter book. When I use the function "Esporta libro su PDF…" the file PDF obtained has the summary correct (all the chapters are dysplayed) but bookmarks only appear for two chapthers.
    I've tried changing the order of the chapters to see if it's a file problem, but the result doesn't change. The last chapter does not appear in bookmarks list.

    I remain at disposal for any clarification

  14. Text Wrap causes InDesign to Crash and yes it is up to date

    No it isn't intermittent. It's every time.
    Yes my InDesign is up to date.
    Obviously that means the latest release has not fixed the problem.

  15. Crash when placing DOCX with character styles

    Steps:
    1. Attempt to place place Word.docx in an InDesign 2020 document.
    2. InDesign spends a long time parsing character styles.
    3. Resaved Word file as .doc file and was able to import it. I don't know what information (if any) in the Word file was lost. This is not an ideal solution.

    Link above "How to Submit Crash Report" is dead. I have previously submitted several crash reports through the InDD/system interface.

  17. Page number underline

    Page numbering with underline aligned left and centre has a horizontal offset underline. Only aligned right seems to be working correctly.

  18. Styles for buttons and forms

    It would be nice to be able to create styles for the buttons and forms so you don't have to manually adjust it when your document has heaps of the same fields.
    Even just being able to change the default settings would be useful. I have to waste so much more time having to manually change each field setting.

    Who decided that Minion Pro, 12pt and scrollable was what people wanted?
    Also, why would a checkbox by default be checked, most of the time you want a checkbox not to be checked when creating a form??

  19. layout moves when dragging pictures from windows explorer

    When I have a grid of empty frames that I wish to populate with images that I am dragging from windows explorer, as I fill them the view of the layout shifts meaning I have to keep adjusting my view as items move outside the view. Everything is visible at the start so this auto view shift is really unhelpful and considering the volume of work this affects it would be a real time saver if it didn't happen.
