  6. Ungrouping deletes all items

    Using Adobe InDesign CC up-to-date on a PC running Windows 10.

    1. Ungrouped group of text boxes + image boxes.
    2. All text in boxes disappeared but outlines remained. However in the layers you could see that they were deleted.

    Strangely enough, by deleting a different hidden layer, I could ungroup the group and they would not be deleted.

    Definitely the weirdest InDesign bug I've seen to date.

    Any help would be appreciated!!

  8. Indesign crashes with 0xc0000005 executing a script that works with tables

    Hi all,

    I have a extend script that works with tables. It always works fine executed in Extend Script Toolkit, but when I want to rise it from Adobe Indesign, it always make the aplication to crash with an 0xc0000005 error. Not always crashes at the same line and not always crashes in the same table. Simply a random number of tables in the document are procesed, but always crashes before finish.

    Indesign version: CS6 8.0 version (I also have tried with a trial 2019 version and also crashes!!).

    OS: Windows 7 64b

    We are totally desperated. Please, help!!

    Thanks…

  9. Ability to Add more than One Page at a Time

    I have a "large" technical textbook, in my case 20 chapters and at least 22 indd files, if I wnt to add a page or two to an existing chapter, each time I click the new page icon, it takes a while for InDesign to reassess page and section numbers. Ten clicks of "new page later", it rather timeconsuming.

    How about an option, similar to adding rows/columns to a table, that allows you to specifiy how many pages you would like to add?

    At the moment, adding 10 pages means watching it update section numbers 10 times.

    Kind regards
    Mike…

  11. Tired of Adobe cloud and syncing

    I have had it!
    I have so had it with you Adobe! I'm not even connected to the internet, I'm OFFLINE!!!! In InDesign, when I work with a freaking Google font called "Lato," I expect only the Google Font to be on my system fonts. Yet, you, yes, YOU want me to connect to the internet so that the font "Lato Medium" is synced into my design, which I did not even request to be synced in the first place. I never wanted the **** font, yet you force it down on me. InDesign keeps telling me that the font…

  13. InDesign freezes while Adding New/Editing Cross-References

    1. InDesign 13.1 x64
    2a. Select the text, go to Insert Cross References either via Type > Hyperlinks & Cross References or via the Cross References Panel.
    2b. Select text that already has a cross reference, go to Cross-Reference Options either via Type > Hyperlinks and Cross References of the Cross References panel.
    3. The New Cross-Reference or Edit Cross-Reference dialog box should open and function.
    4. InDesign freezes and has to be force quit. I've waited as long as 20 minutes for the system to function properly before having to force it to quit.

  14. Text edits forcing blank

    I keep encountering the same glitch in multiple documents where an edit to the text on one page forces a blank page (although running head and page number remain) on the following page, with the text re-flowing as expected on the page after that. For example, deleting an unwanted space is a frequent cause of this glitch. So far I've found 2 ways of making the text return to it's correct position and removing the blank:

    1) place my cursor at the very end of the page before the unwanted blank and enter a space - this brings the text…

  17. [Performance] Footnote disappears

    A footnote disappeared without reason then appeared back when I changed something in the page layout. This is a very important bug because InDesign didn't display any kind of warning about this problem: no red indicator of missing text or overfull text block. I noticed it by chance. Please look at the screen captures to understand it: the number 2 footnote is missing whereas the footnote number is present in the text. In the other screen capture, the problem has been solved.

  20. Copying RGB from Illustrator to Indesign no longer working. (Comes out CMYK)

    When I copy an RGP element from Illustrator and paste it into InDesign, it comes out in CMYK (much more dull, and less vibrant than the RGB image). I have assured that my document is setup correctly and even had Adobe Support check it out and said that everything was setup correctly but the claimed that "copy and paste isn't the way to do it", and I need to "Place" the file every time. Am I the only one that finds this unacceptable? (Running the latest version of Adobe products and the latest MacOS Catalina)
