  2. publish online

    When I try to publish online it comes up with an error#39. I believe it's a problem with the proxy settings and my IT team are trying to fix this but they need to know what the network requirements are for it to work properly

  4. issues with video content being supported from Indd output to viewabiity and interface as pdfs in acrobat

    make it so pdf's can have view-ability and functioning controler when exported from Indd. This used to work but has gone away. If you are phasing out flash please post a replacement. We dont all use digital videos linked from the internet and dont always have an internet connection.

  5. New Share tutorial animation loops continuously when opening ID, with no affordance to terminate.

    When opening the application, ID can dramatically improve the user experience and the opportunity to show new features (in this case, the new Share feature) by giving the user a choice to opt-into learning about a said new feature by presenting the user with a [yes | no | maybe later | never show again] dialog message.

    Currently, on a MacBook Pro running Catalina (10.15.7), ID 2021 immediately starts looping a tutorial animation within a fairly large overlay which appears to be intended to promote the new Share functionality. This all happens immediately when the rest of the UI is…

  6. Can't access free templates

    If you create software, and have templates that are labeled free. There should be no reason why I need a adobe stock account to access FREE TEMPLATES!!

    If it requires said license, it should say, REQUIRES ADOBE STOCK LICENCE

    If you are going to offer a product and put a paywall subscription behind it, that you can't access. What is the point of paying for a product that you can't access FREE content or basic options to try out.

    Who ever designed that, needs to re-word it.

    As you can tell, not a happy client.

    Thanks
    Robert Dion

  7. Images Blurry when PDFing from Book

    I'm working with catalog documents in an .indb file and when PDFing from the book, without any other files open, all of the images come out looking like they are unlinked.

    Images are all high resolution and linked in their individual files
    I am using press quality/X1A presets with no compression set
    Preflight shows no errors

    The only way to get clear images is to have every single INDD from the book open and THEN make the PDF, which, to me, defeats the purpose of the book functionality.

    I don't remember this being an issue in earlier versions but i…

  8. Updated to Indesign 2021. if I close the program, it will not open up again unless I reboot or end process in task manager

    I can end the Indesign process in Task Manager, and then Indesign will open again just fine. Or I can reboot the computer, and again it will open without problems.

  9. ID print postscript to network drive failed to create file.

    When using InDesign CC 2021 to print postscript file to a network drive. There is always no file created as the filesize is 0 byte. What's wrong with InDesign CC ? I don't have this problem with InDesign CS6.

  11. Tutorial image link is broken.

    I can't find InCopy UserVoice, so leave a message here.
    The image display on the page below is not working properly.
    Why don't you check the link again?

    https://helpx.adobe.com/kr/incopy/using/workspace-basics.html

    And if you have InCopy UserVoice, please tell me where it is.

  12. InDesign _ images in viewport changes scale, even if loacked

    I have an seem to be running into this issue on multiple occasions. I lock the viewport, save file/close the InDesign file.
    When I go to open the file again, the scale of the image in the locked viewport is changed, and goes outside the viewport. I am forced to rescale the images again. Is this a bug? How can I prevent this from happening?

  13. share for review isn't working for client

    My client gets: File preview error. File preview not available, please reload to try again.
    They can see the document icon to click on in the "Shared with me" but when they click on it, it gives the the: File preview not available, please reload to try again. They are on Windows if that helps. It appears to be working for everybody else that it was shared with.
    Update Resaved file with new name, reshared, all is working!

  15. paragraph format

    Can't create a new paragraph format. To be more presice, I can't change the font settings itself (fontstyle, size etc.)

    It should look like the others underlined in green.

    I'm using InDesign 16.0.1

  16. When will Indesign (and the whole adobe package) work with properly with Catalina?

    Indesign keeps crashing, version 2021, and earlier versions - tried this. Illustrator and photoshop, acrobat too. Very frustrating, luckily been able to work on my laptop instead. But as a good customer I am paying for software that isn't compatible with the platform that it is used with constantly? The update panel forces one to upgrade the OS and then it crashes. Pleaaaase fix this. 2020 is sad enough already

  19. Choose Anchor point when changing Document size

    When changing the Document Size, Id always crops/adds equal parts on all sides. It would be nice to choose whether to crop to center or from a specific corner or side (see the Photoshop Legacy Crop interface)

  20. Editing a Gradient Swatch affects orientation

    When a Gradient Swatch is edited, the orientation / position of that gradient on existing objects is reset. Changing colors / knots should not affect the position of applied gradients.
