  3. BUG: Small Caps not applied correctly to Variable Text with World-ready Composer

    Using Adobe Indesign 19.3 on MacOS 14.4, Apple M1.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Make new document.
    2. Define a text variable "Test" with custom text "Handgloves".
    3. Insert variable in text frame.
    4. Set the composer for that paragraph to "World-ready..."
    5. Set the paragraph in Small Caps
    6. Try different fonts.

    Expected result: small caps.

    Actual Result: only first two characters are changed to small caps. Typing characters after the variable placeholder changes how many characters are changed to small caps. See attached video.

    Workaround is to change the paragraph to a non World-ready composer.

    Note: may be related…

    InDesign 18.5.2
    Mac 12.7.4

    Please read and try to create it in order to see the problem. some users reported it works for a few times, but later stopped.

    Hello,
    I have a need to hide/show panels except the toolbox which is here:

    Product area : Views, Navigation > Show/Hide all panels except toolbox --- Default: Shift+Tab

    Of course this shortcut will not work when my cursor is inside a text box so I added a shortcut when the "Text" context is selected so it will work in this way too: Text: Ctrl+Tab

    While doing so I made sure [unassigned]…

  6. Library assets missing in InDesign 2024 v19.3 but visible in Creative Cloud

    Many assets that i've made and added into my libraries that we use for production are now missing for me in InDesign, v19.3, although they are still present in the Creative Cloud app, and my coworker using the same library but on InDesign v19.1 does not have this issue so far.

    Both of us are on the latest version of MacOs, v14.4.

  7. Crashes when changing font, copying text and saving as another file type

    I have been tryin to open one of my 'old' Indesign files (2017). At the time I used Cross-References plugin DTP tools. I no longer use it. It keeps populating a notification that the plugin is missing, but it still opens the INDD document. I have tried saving the document—
    1) as an IDML document and that does not work.
    2) I have also tried saving as a new document but the issue remains the same.
    3) I have tried copying the text from it to a new INDD document, it crashes every time and I have sent crash reports.…

  8. InDesign 2024 - Home and New Docs Problem

    Hi!
    I have installed on windows the Adobe InDesign 2024 version. For several days, i've been having trouble opening the program because it doesn't show me the 'home' and doesn't allow me to create new documents, even though i can open documents that are already saved on my PC.

    What can I do?

    Thank you so much!

  9. Fix the touchpad

    Just fix the touchpad please. I've already discussed it In detail on the Adobe community (https://shorturl.at/hAPZ8), but the touchpad is not working well at all. Now it's just less worse than 19.0 but still not working properly. You can't pinch to zoom, unlike Illustrator for example, and in general, it's not smooth at all. Trying to scroll through a project is a challenge; it scrolls in jumps with almost zero control over it. Centering the project on the PC is impossible without control 0.

  11. Shared destination URLs link back to old INDD files and stop working in PDF

    INDD 2024 v19.3 Mac
    I'm not sure if this is a bug or intentional by design but it has caused us no end of problems
    I create 1 working template - often this template is a recycled and updated file from the previous year. When approved by the client I then "Save as" with different names for different regions.
    Unfortunately when I do this, the "Shared hyperlink destinations" link back to the original InDesign document. When working with multiple designers across multiple machines, the links cannot be edited by anyone who does not have the original file so every hyperlink…

  12. Corner Options remove the Inset Spacing on a Text Box

    When you create a text box with an inset spacing, if you apply a corner option, the insert spacing is removed.

    To fix it, all you got to do is go to the Text Frame Options and add the inset spacing again, but it would be great if it didn't get removed in the first place.

  13. InDesign HTML export writes user CSS file in wrong order, ahead of base CSS

    Since at least v18, InDesign export to HTML writes any user-designated CSS files ahead of the base, idGenerated CSS file. This means user statements are wholly or partially overwritten by the base statements.

    This has been discussed and noted in the forum since at least v18, and I thought a bug notice had been entered here but I cannot locate it.

    This fault is critical for any users trying to export to HTML and use CSS style overrrides. Problems are likely elusive and frustrating since the "wrong interaction" of the CSS order may not be apparent unless and until the…

  14. Alpha channel issue in print pdf

    Hi All,

    My single-color PDF document that I uploaded to the Scout printer has an error stating that it uses the Alpha channel and is treated as a CMYK plate. My print page did not have an alpha channel.
    Could someone please advise me on how to determine whether the Alpha channel is there and how to prevent this sort of printer issue? My print PDF document is attached here.

    Regards,

    Mani

  15. InDesign 2024 regression: Text variable rendering breaks Google barcode font

    A sequence of numbers rendered in Google's "Libre Barcode EAN13 Text" font will not work if the text is inserted via a text variable. Entering the text verbatim with the same paragraph style produces the expected result.

    This is a regression in InDesign 2024. The attached IDML file works fine in InDesign 2023 v18.5 but not in InDesign 2024 v19.3.0.58.

    The font can be found at https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Libre+Barcode+EAN13+Text.

    (Sorry for the .idml.txt extension for the test case – this form won't let me submit .idml, .indd or .zip attachments directly.)

  16. Punctuation at the end of Hebrew text is broken if there is a SHIFT+ENTER in the middle

    Punctuation character at the end of Hebrew text is "shift" to the right if a SHIFT+ENTER (line break within the same paragraph) was typed somewhere in the paragraph.

    A simple example is shown in the attached image.

    Also, in the attached Image I am using the "Adobe Hebrew" font with "Hebrew" set as Language (as can be seen in the attached images).

  20. Main view not redrawn when mouse zooming until mouse is moved

    After I updated to MacOs 14.4, I got this weird bug when zooming pages using Opt+mouse scroll wheel. I can see the vertical and horizontal scroll bar sizes changes as I am zooming, but the main view is not updated. The moment I move my mouse, the main view also get updated. This is very frustrating, because I cannot see the size while I am zooming. This worked fine in MacOs 14.2.

    To reproduce the bug:

    Zooming seems to work initially when opening a document, and the error seems sometimes to be triggered if I Space+drag when I have the…
