  1. Indesign 15.1.2

    Depuis hier, mes raccourcis clavier "dupliquer/déplacer" (fleche+option+cliquer glisser) ne fonctionne plus.
    De même, déplacer un objet ou le faire tourner avec la touche majuscule pour qu'ils se déplace selon un axe horizontal/vertical ou qu'il tourne selon 45° ne fonctionne plus :-(
    Je ne trouve pas pourquoi...
    J'ai la dernière version OS et Adobe..
    Merci pour votre aide

  2. Crash: book-panel shows unopened file as opened, when saving Indesign crashes

    I noticed an issue with the book panel.
    For some reason sometimes it shows the icon for "file is open" on some files even though they're not opened in Indesign.

    When I open and want to save them, Indesign want me to define a filelocation again. It seems that Indesign lost the connection to the original file then.

    When saving the file (I usually overwrite the existing one) Indesign crashes.

    See attached screenshot for the "opened file"-icon in the book panel.

  4. Backup

    I recently lost an important job that I developed in InDesign, due to failure in the external hard drive. I use other programs that make automatic backups and that create a backup copy of the file, thus making it possible to recover lost work through an automatic copy made by the program. Would it be possible to have this mechanism in InDesign?

  5. Inline Text Frame beside another inline Text Frame when Auto-Size


    • Make Text Frame and write word "Second".

    • Cut the Text Frame.

    • Make larger Text Frame and paste the "Second" Text Frame inside.

    • Select the character represented the Text Frame copy and paste before without any space between.

    • Select the second one change Auto-Size to Height Only.

    • Select the first one and change Auto-Size to Height Only.

    • Crash!

  8. Text cursor not displayed in InCopy on MacOS 11 (Big Sur)

    I know that InDesign 2020 (15.1.2) and InCopy 2020 (15.1.2) are not and will not be supported on Mac OS 11 (Big Sur), but nevertheless we are doing some testing because. Our customers may upgrade their Mac or buy a new one with MacOS 11 installed and expect that everything works as before.
    So we are doing some basic testing to be prepared.
    For InDesign 2020 (and 2021 prerelease) it looks fine. No big surprises.

    In InCopy however I am running into a strange glitch: the text cursor doesn't show up in all view modes (story, galley, layout).

    Did anyone…

  9. Change of indesign behaviour regarding form elements - problems of non printing elements

    Indesign Version 15.12x64 Windows

    I opened an old document (paper registration/order form) and suddenly became aware that something has happened.

    A lot of input fields was visible - in the old version i did never see tham in this view.

    But this was not the problem.

    The problem was, that if I converted the cocument to PDF with the STANDARD PRINT preset , all boxes were gone.

    After some investigation i found out, that those have been converted to intaractive elements also without my knowledge.

    Only after i changed the option "INTERACTIVE ELEMENTS" the very last option on the PDF…

  11. Losing Preferences

    Every time I re-open Indesign I lose my preferences.
    I lose my preferred measuring unit and language preferences, I lose my preferred workspace and lose all my saved template sizes.

    I have tried to re-install Indesign from the Creative Cloud app.
    I have tried un-installing and re-installing absolutely every Creative Cloud application, including the CC app itself.
    I have tried forcing Indesign to forget preferences at startup.

    No luck with any of those things.

    InDesign 15.1.2
    Mac OS Catalina 10.15.3

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  15. 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.

  16. '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.

  18. 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…

  20. 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.
