  1. Type tool still deselects itself InDD 15.0.1

    The bug has been already reported, it's been claimed to be fixed in 14.0.1, but actually still persists and never was corrected.

    Typing "T" just selects the type tool very briefly, then changes back to the previous tool. Clicking inside a text frame has the same result, even if you get to select some part of the text, it just changes back tot he previous tool in most of the cases. The only way to get it work, is to select the tool in the sidebar, however even there it takes several seconds to become active.

    Using InDD 15.0.1 on…

  2. Indesign 2021 (16.0) IDLK file do not lock

    It is currently possible that two users are able to open the same Indesign file. I am working on a network volume via VPN and it was possible for my colleague to open the same file i was working with. The *.idlk file was generated but it seems that it would not be recognized from the other Indesign my colleague was using.

    I tried to reproduce this issuue with Indesign 2020 and all worked fine as expected.

    This is an enormous issue for collaboration with other colleagues at the same projects.

  4. Multiple listings of same font in Find Font menu

    There are multiple listings of the same font in the Find Font menu in CC2019. All information is the same, all applied characters are the same, but there is odd behavior.

    --FileACC2019WithDocumentsfontsfolder.png shows double listing of Trade Gothic LT Pro Roman.

    --FileACC2019WithoutDocumentfontsfolder.png (when I take away access to Document fonts folder, no other changes), one instance switches to "Regular" instead of "Roman"

    --FileACC2017WithDocumentfontsfolder.png shows what happens with I open this file in CC2017 (no double listing)

    --FileACC2017WithoutDocumentfontsfolder.png (Document fonts folder hidden) shows what happens with I open this file in CC2017 (no…

  6. export to pdf destination folder changes after creating "share for review" copy

    After creating "share for review" copy, when I try to export to PDF, the "save to" destination folder changes to: C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Adobe\InDesign\Version 16.0-ME\en_US\Caches\Artifact
    I guess it's becuase the "share for review" feature creates also a PDF copy of the book. but it's annoying to be forced to navigate again and again to my project's folder.
    i'm using the latest version 16.3 (middle east locale). windows 10.
