  1. I can not display images in high-resolution-mode

    DEAR ADOBE!
    I have a problem with Indesign that can not display images in high-resolution-mode.
    All pictures turn black and striped. The problem started after upgrading to Monteray 12.4
    I have already been in contact with your support via chat for two hours.
    It looked promising, but when they then restarted my computer via remote control,
    I lost contact with you and have not been able to give feedback since.
    I am VERY disappointed and want help with this as soon as possible with someone who speaks
    Swedish. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE / MARIA

  2. Relinking incorrect files

    Today's thing that is usefully broken on this terrible app is I can select a link from the links pallet, right click to relink it and Indesign will handily decide to relink a different linked file on the page forcing me to repeat the process. This is happening every now and again and not every time I relink files.

  5. Appliquer des gabarit à des pages selon des conditions

    Bonjour, après de longues recherches, je remarque qu'il n'y a aucune possibilité d'appliquer des gabarits selon des règles (présence de texte, grep, présence d'image, pourcentage du bloc de texte rempli, présence d'un style, etc.) à des pages spécifiques (à la première/dernière page, entre certaines pages, fonctionnement similaire au grep, etc.). On pourrait réaliser cela en donnant plusieurs gabarits à une page et donner des règles pour choisir lequel appliquer (avec une option pour choisir les pages de manière dynamique).
    Pour ma part, je cherche désespérément un moyen dynamique et automatisé de cacher le folio/numéro de page lorsque que c'est une…

  6. InDesign Share for Review @mentions are not sending emails to the contributors

    People are leaving comments with the @mention option but the @person is not receiving those comments in email so they don't know that the comment was made.

    I'm using Version 17.3

  7. Adobe cloud app - Preferences under account - Notifications tab just spins

    I open the Preferences pop-up under my account image. I click on Notifications tab but it just spins a blue circle and never shows me anything. All the other tabs in this pop-up work fine.

  8. Package doesn't include some fonts

    When a supplied InDesign package with ALL necessary Document Fonts is re-packaged for distribution NOT ALL of those Fonts previously included will be re-packaged.

    So, pretty much after the new package is created you have to compare the Document Fonts folders between the 2 to see which fonts are missing, or look through the new packaged document to see which ones are indeed missing.

  9. Can't type letter "n" in text boxes

    For some reason I can't type the letter "n" in text boxes in indesign v 17.3 on Windows 10.

    In some text boxes, typing "n" does not generate the letter. In tables, typing "n" can sometimes change the cell style or paragraph style, and does not generate the letter.

    I don't have caps lock or a stuck control / alt key ... Everything else is working fine.

  10. InDesign running very slow while using Google Drive on macOS Monterey

    I am using InDesign CC 2022 (v17.3.0.61 Apple Silicon supported) with Google Drive for desktop (59.0.3.0 Apple Silicon supported) on a MacBook Air (M1, 2020) and macOS Monterey 12.4 (21F79).

    Google Drive uses the File Provider API supported by macOS Monterey 12.3 and later, but when the CPU usage of the macOS fileproviderd process increases, InDesign runs very slowly. Even mouse clicks on objects, menus, panels, etc. take tens of seconds from input to acceptance.

    When the Google Drive file sync completes or pause, InDesign returns to its original behavior a short time later as the load on the fileproviderd…

  11. Find Font bug when multiple fonts begin with same name

    When a document contains multiple fonts with same family names (e.g. Arial and Arial Hebrew), the search font dialog box only makes available one of the fonts (e.g. if I want to search Arial, even if I select Arial in the available fonts in the search dialog box, the Search Font line will automatically show Arial hebrew so i can't just find Arial. I also have the same problems with multiple Helvetica Family fonts.

  12. Hyperlinks In Document Not Linking Out

    I am working in InDesign 17.3.

    I can create and update the Share for Review link itself but all hyperlinks within the document won't work. The hyperlinks show up as links in the document and online (blue, underline) but when you click on them they don't do anything. You can't right click to get options to open in a new tab or copy the link.

    The links work when you export as a PDF or publish online but not when you do Share for Review.

  14. Text wrap around anchored objects needs to work according to settings. It is inconsistent and erratic.

    Text wrap refuses to wrap properly around my anchored objects regardless of anchor placement in the paragraph or text wrap offset settings.

    This causes the object to overlap the text and/or have inconsistent margin offset around the object. It's erratic and inconsistent among the various objects, even though they all have the exact same object style applied.

    Some of the objects wrap a little better than others - at least they're not overlapping on top of text - but the wrap margins are still inconsistent. Not a single object wraps how I believe it should based on the style attributes…

  15. Image copyright notice in EPUB exported images removed by ID

    If you create an InDesign ePub that contains images with copyright notices, inspection of the exported image files within the EPUB (ie. OEBPS/image/*) shows that the embedded images have had the copyright notice removed.

    Ideally, copyright messages should be retained throughout the export process.

    The TIFF source file has an IPTC Copyright message.

  16. freezes at (starting up service registry) Indesign (17.3)

    HI.

    I suffer from a problem that some people talked about, and I tried all the solutions proposed by the community.

    But unfortunately, to no avail.

    The problem is that InDesign won't open, even though I have the latest version (17.3).

    The problem is that the start screen freezes at (starting up service registry)

  17. InDesign responsiveness is very slow

    All the adobe apps are working fine aside from InDesign. It keeps on crashing when I am working and when it is not, the response is so slow. Tried to re-install but did not really help at all.

  18. Caption Metadata in Text Variables

    InDesign version 17.3
    A Metadata Caption set in Text Variables can be on a layer separate from an image. In my workflow, this is good!

    Unfortunately, InDesign treats images on layers that are turned off as if they are on, and hence a text box containing a Metadata Caption is presented with multiple images to read from and delivers the message <Multiple intersecting links>.

    I discovered this by having a square image on one layer and a 4:3 image on another layer, a layer turned off. When the text box containing the caption touched the top or bottom of the…

  19. Creating QR code for UK text message using 11 numbers (‭07875701049‬), but get error message. 'No useable data found' on iPhone camera

    Hmm very limited characters to describe the bug!? I just want to report the bug, or find out if I just need to include certain UK or International telephone codes, i.e. I have used the standard 11 numbers for a UK mobile/cell phone, but have also tried adding country and area codes... but still get the same result. Why is it only giving me an option to send this message with a, 'Post idea' button?? I just want to report a bug!

  20. Nach Update fehlt die Möglichkeit ein Bild im Text zu verankern

    Seit dem Update auf InDesign 17.3. fehlt all meinen Bildrahmen das kleine grüne Kästchen das man zur Verankerung von Grafiken in Texten verwenden konnte. Auch das Einfügen eines verankerten Bilder per rechten Mausklick funktioniert nicht mehr. Vor zwei Tagen war die Funktion noch wie gewohnt vorhanden. Gibt es evtl. einen ShortCut, um diese Funktion wieder zu aktivieren oder die Möglichkeit die Software darauf hin zurück zusetzen, dass die gewohnte Funktion wieder vorhanden ist?

    Leider kann ich außerdem in diesem Webformular mit dem unten stehenden Button weder PNG-Dateien noch JPG-Dateien uploaden, um ihnen ein Bild von meinem Problem zu zeigen :-(…
