  1. The amount of “Indent to Here” in a paragraph with a “Text Wrap” object at the beginning of the line is wider than usual.

    1. Version of Adobe InDesign Windows CC2023-2024

    3. Expected result Wrap at "Indent to Here"
    4. Actual result A gap is created where the "Text Wrap" is added to the wrap of "Indent to Here".

    I suspect that the issue mentioned in the post below may be related to it being fixed in 2023 (18.0).

  2. InDesign 19.4 for MacOS ignores PluginConfig.txt

    InDesign 19.4 on MacOS ignores PluginConfig.txt and doesn't load the desired plug-ins on startup.

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Place a plugin somewhere outside the InDesign app folder.
    2. Create a PluginConfig.txt that points to this plugin.
    3. Place the PluginConfig.txt either in the InDesign app folder or the Preferences folder.
    4. Start InDesign.
    5. The plugin won't be loaded.

    I have checked this on multiple machines and also have confirmation from someone also on the user forums:

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign-discussions/indesign-ignores-pluginconfig-txt/m-p/14578540

    The Windows version seems to work correctly.

  3. Errors in file creation means that some devices cannot open epub file. ID Version 19.3

    E-Pub checker defines issues consistently
    "data-idGenAnimationEndState" is not a valid custom data attribute (it must have at least one character
    after the hyphen, be XML-compatible, and not contain ASCIl uppercase letters). The errors are always in reference to lines 17 and 20 in the code. When I attempted to load the file I received notice: The (ID created files) are 'not supported' and cannot be uploaded to this site. The publications with these errors contain gifs. They play ok on my mac and android devices though not on some similar devices.

  6. PDF Workflow shows syntax error in exported PDF Version 18.5

    I read that there was some Problems with PDF export since InDesign version 18.4. And i want to report that there are still issues with the latest version 18.5. Our Workflow reports syntax error in pdf and aborts procession. Its a full stop, no detailed error messages were shown. The only solution for us is to place the PDF again in older InDesign (17.4) and export a PDF from there.

  7. Adobe InDesign 18.5 missing Fonts

    Missing Fonts in Adobe InDesign 18.5.

    Hello,
    Our Corporate Font is always missing in Adobe Indesign 18.5. Our IT checked the Font istallation, Libraray Font Cache ... and we got the Info, it is only an Adobe InDesign problem. Cause the corporate Font is in Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop available.

    The complete Grafik Team has installed otf and ttf Fonts. (And no we don't use Postscript Typ 1 Fonts.) 😉

    Our Typedesigner tested the Font, everything is ok.
    We are using InDesign 18.5 on Mac Ventura 13.5. Deinstalling and install InDesign 18.5 new didn't solve the Problem. The complete Font-Family…

  8. Export PDF is crashing PAC checker due to font issue

    Since version 18.4, sometimes the embedding of specific fonts is causing PAC to get a system error. I know this because I sent my file to Axaio (made-to-tag) when I couldn't figure out why PAC was not working. They told me this started happening since version 18.4, which has something to do with fonts. They suggested finding a TrueType version of the font to get around this bug or download 18.3. I use Indesign all the time and need this bug to be fixed.

  9. relink with file extension bug

    Relink File Extension is not working. This bug seems persistent so I can only assume not too many people are reporting it, but it's slowing down my productivity. When I try to use Relink File Extensions and choose the option to link images that have the .psd extension rather than a .jpeg I get the error message "Failed to find 1 links in new folder. These links have not been relinked, and will remain selected in the Links panel." Each time I've attempted to do this over the last couple of months, I double-check that the only difference in the…

  10. M1 Mac Graphic Problems Continue

    As others have mentioned InDesign graphic performance on M1 Macs is unacceptable. This was marked as "fixed" but it continues with macOS Ventura 13.0.1 and InDesign 18. For example, the screen does not always redraw when scrolling or jumping to a different page until you move your pointer. Switching to a different program and then back to InDesign also fixes the problem for a while. It doesn't matter whether GPU Performance is on or off. This is the most fundamental functionality. Please figure it out and fix it once and for all.

  11. Absurd translation of the word "spread" in Czech UI

    Please correct the absurd translation of the “spread” on the Effects window. In this context, you cannot translate it as “dvojstránky” (= two pages) but rather “rozšíření” – in InDesign CS6 the translation is correct.

    Please note that in some languages one word can have multiple meanings. For example, in Czech we have one word for month and moon. The words are not interchangeable, you can’t say “the moon of July” in English. But this is exactly how you translate the aformentioned expression!

    It is the same with the word spread in English, it has multiple meanings and cannot be translated…

  13. Buttons Reverting to Top-Most Destination

    I set up all of my buttons on different parent pages and amended pages based on parent pages, gave them all unique names and set their destinations. They worked perfectly for precisely one export to interactive PDF and then most of the buttons reverted to the top-most destination in the list when I reopened the document.

  14. Can't create snap to baseline style

    I just paid for and downloaded ID 17.2.1 after using cs6 and need to meet a deadline for a four page newsletter. I can't seem to find any buttons whatsoever that allow me to create a body style with the text snapping to the baseline. My text is all over the shop. Did I just do a faulty download, or am I missing something? Where is the option for baseline snapping or not snapping?

  16. InDesign 17.1 not working properly

    InDesign (17.1) is acting very strange for the last two months. When I click on File, Edit, View or any other topic, the tab does not open. I cannot access any action under those tabs. Also, when I eventually get to work with my document, it is extremely slow to save. It turns, and turns forever. I've been working with InDesign for over 20 years and it's the first time I have so much trouble with the software. How can that be fixed?

    Can you try the following and see if it solves your issue:


    1. Quit InDesign.
    2. Delete the following:

    /Users/your_user_name/Library/Caches/Adobe InDesign 

    /Users/your_user_name/Library/Preferences/Adobe InDesign 

    /Users/your_user_name/Library/Caches/CSXS/cep_cache

  17. Share for Review

    After sending out a "Share for Review" in InDesign, I went back to the file after people made comments and when I go to the review, the only option is to create a new review. But if i go to my email notification and click on the link, I can see the review that way. I did not "save as" to the file.

  18. Transparency from PSD or PNG not showing in InDesign 17.0.1

    Since InDesign updated to v17.0.1 (from the v17 before this), transparency on pngs and psd's has stopped working. Instead it drops in a black background and messes with the colours.
    The image on blue shows how it should work (using a workaround dropping it onto white and setting the transparency to darken), the other is with the PNG or PSD imported with transparency. It was fine yesterday before updating.

  19. 2022 InDesign bugs

    when using ID 2021 and before, When I sized a graphic, say, from 100 to 50%, the info box would say the graphic is now 50%. In ID 2022, when I reduce a graphic, the box says it is 100%. I am not liking this.
