  1. Computer: Mac Sonoma 14.4 Indesign: 14.4 AMFID and TRUSTD

    Yesterday I updated both Mac and Indesign. Today I regret.
    When autoflowing a very large file (which yesterday would have taken around 10 minutes) - now it runs for hours.

    Strangely I have noticed that while the delay is happening in Indesign - amfid begins to take 64% of my CPU on the Activity monitor. trustd runs around 24-27%. Indesign is running 9-10%. Once I shut down Indesign or the task finally completes, but amfid and trustd disappear from the activity monitor. Could this be the source of the delay. This is truly keeping me from my work.

  2. Color Profile Warnings when copying Objects and Text within the same Document

    Mismatching color profile warnings are very helpful when copying objects between documents with different profiles, which is why this is an always-on option for me.

    However, for some time now, such warnings seem to pop up randomly when I copy text between documents with the same profile settings, and sometimes even when copying text from one text box to another within the same document.

    My understanding is that this is a bug, as live text in an INDD cannot have different profiles. Is there a way to avoid these warnings and still get them when they are necessary (copying between…

  3. PDF/vector rasterize fail

    Pdf rasterization has been bad for many years, a long time ago I reported this problem with complex graphics when thin lines appear in the image when saved to jpg. Previously, at least a pdf from indesign could be opened in photoshop, which had a different rasterization, but it has been the same for a long time, and when rasterizing SOME pdfs, it always creates thin lines in different places depending on the resolution...

    Here is a sample QR directly generated in indesign when saved to jpg and in the preview in the application shows these thin lines!!!

    I would…

  4. hyperlinkTextSources.add thrown Errornumber 79111 since InDesign 2024

    When creating hyperlinks, a hyperlink is automatically created via a text object. The script ran until InDesign 2023.
    The text objects are returned by a search.

    app.activeDocument.findGrep();

    The hyperlink was created with the steps
    hyperlinkTextSources.add
    hyperlinkURLDestinations.add
    hyperlinks.add

    The first hyperlink is created as expected. In InDesign 2024, error 79111 "The selected object is already being used by another hyperlink" is thrown after the first hyperlink created (hyperlinkTextSources.add).

  5. Margins not honored when duplicating pages

    When duplicating a page in a document with different Inside/Outside margins, the content of consecutive pages moves out of the margins.

    Create/Insert New Page works as expected though.

  6. When you place an object with ‘Corner Options’ and ‘Text Wrap (Wrap around object shape)’ on a frame, the text moves.

    Checked on Windows 10 Japanese version, InDesign CS5 to CC2024

    1.Create a new document
    2.Create a frame grid with the Horizontal Grid Tool
    3.Insert a few line breaks at the beginning and assign sample text
    4.Draw a rectangle with the Rectangle Tool
    5.Set the shape in Corner Options to anything other than ‘None’
    6.Set the text wrap to ‘Wrap around object shape’
    7.When the drawn rectangle is placed on the frame, it is pushed out by one character

    It’s strange that the text moves even though the rectangle is not placed on top of the text.

    Conditions for the object…

  8. Typing over selected numbers doesn't work the first time in ID v 19.2

    ID v 19.2 won't let my team type over a selected number the first time we try, we have to press the number on our keyboard a couple of times for it to update. In previous versions of ID we didn't have to press a number on our keyboard twice for it to type over a selection.

  9. Edit Hyperlink allows pasting newlines

    The hyperlink editor only supports single line editing, but if you paste a URL with a preceding lewline character, the editor keeps the new line. This makes the error non-obvious to the user. It is also impossible to remove the newline in the editor because it is a single-line editor, so it does not recognize that the newline is there. Since newlines are not allowed in URLs and in fact break them, my suggestion is to strip newline characters from URLs when pasted.

  10. Color tags for pages in the Pages palette do not shift when page order changes automatically

    Color tags for pages in the Pages palette do not shift when the page order is changed due to changes in the text flow. Changes in text flow can add or remove a page automatically. A certain headline, for instance, then can move from page 19 to page 20. I wanted to tag the page that holds this headline. When text flow adds a page, the headline is moved from page 19 to page 20, but the color tag is still shown for page 19. It is not “linked” to the page content.
    This behavior is different from adding or…

  11. InDesign Window Keeps Moving

    I keep running into issues with my InDesign application window moving around. The window continually resizes itself slightly or moves to the side of the monitor (cutting off access to some of the tools) when I haven't tried to resize it. This isn't a 'once in a while' issue; it's happening consistently, multiple times a session.

    I'm running Indesign 2024 on a MacBook Pro with Apple M2 Pro Chip and macOS Ventura 13.5.1.

    The issue also persists on my laptop monitor and when connected to external monitors (I run one 4K colour-accurate monitor and one standard 1080p monitor).

    It would…

  13. glitch

    glitch
    My indseign starts glitching as soon as I move a picture or make a frame. It goes half black or fully purple and blue. Its impossible for me to figure out how to fix it. I've tried restarting the app. But that doesn't matter. I don't have any problems with the other apps.

  20. 19.2 Arabic version, missing periods in exported PDF

    In an exported pdf, periods (or other ending characters) at the end of paragraphs are missing, if the paragraphs were aligned right or justified in the original English version.
    The time-consuming work-around option is to make the period LTR char direction.
