  1. inDesign buttons not show

    Some interactive buttons not show in acrobat DC. I have to click on something (e.g. the zoom) for showing all interactive buttons. Huge bug!

  3. [InCopy] is very slow with some projects, even on a very fast Computer

    We often see a pretty significant drop in performance in InCopy for no apparent reason. This seems to occur on random Projects. As far as i could test there was no correlation with the number of InCopy Files or the complexity of the layout.

  4. [InCopy] Sequence of stories is jumbled in Galley or Story View but not in Layout View

    We use InCopy for book production. When we send out an Indesign/InCopy Package to our editors, sometime the sequence of the stories seems to be random. It's all fine in Layout View. This makes reading and edition in Story or Galley View very hard.

  5. Changing color space won't change swatches

    BUG NOT IDEA
    convert cmyk document to rgb. Swatches won't change. Can change custom but black stays CMYK which is different than RGB 000.

  6. Paragraph shading disappears when printing to postscript

    We are using InDesign CC 2017. When we have paragraph shading applied in a paragraph style sometimes the shading will disappear in the PDF when printing to postscript. Strange enough, this is not (always) the case for the entire paragraph or all the paragraphs with that style. But just a part of the text.

  10. Glyphs "alternates for selection"

    Glyphs panel: When I choose Show: Alternates for Selection, no alternates display even though there are several alternates for the selection the fonts I am using. I have tried with many fonts over the years and it still doesn't work.

  11. Not enough contrast in Check Spelling dialogue box

    InDesign CC 2017's Check Spelling results interface is fairly unreadable. In the "Not in Dictionary" and "Uncapitalized Sentence" box, more contrast is needed between the text and background shading. This is true in all appearance settings (dark, medium, light).
    Thanks!

  15. Links from CC Library suddely missing and can't be relinked

    I sometimes have a problem with links from the CC Libraries, the links work fine when I save and close the file. But then sometimes when I open the INDD-file the day after it says that the links are missing, and when I try to relink it just say that "Either the file doesn't excist, you do not have read permissions to it or the file is used in another application".

    But none of the options in the dialog box are correct, the files in the library still works fine in other documents. I have no idea how to fix…

  16. Master-double-page with bleed makes mistake in assigning a single page


    1. InDesign 2017.1

    2. DIN A5 document with double-page and 3 mm bleed. On master-double-page A is no background and on master-double-page B is a full-faced background on the left page and a full-faced background on the right page. If I assign the right page of master-page B, the left page-background will also displayed on the left page (assigned with master page A, where is no background!!!). This just happens if the background of the master-page is set to the bleed (on top-left and bottom). The backgrounds are exact positioned and are not on the opposite page. See screenshots!

    3. On the left…

  17. Paragraph Panel – Unwanted Text replacement

    Please fix this bug!!!

    When I go to manually change the "Space before" or "Space After", it replaces all my selected text rather than the value I have selected to change within the panel.

    This is IMPOSSIBLE to work with.

  19. CC2017

    When I command+W and try to scroll up and down with the arrow keyes it takes forever and its inconstant. Basically its not working at all.
    I just bought the new MacBook Pro 2017 with macOS Sierra 10.12.5.

    I restarted laptop and it continued to make the same.
    In my other Macbook air, it works just as fine.

  20. Conditional Tables: make them use the Condition Indicator

    Currently, when a condition is applied to a table, there is no visible indicator in layout mode. The attached graphic shows how in Story Editor, the table is highlighted with the conditional text indicator, but in Normal mode, it is not.

    But it should be.
