ID 2020 - Indent in combination with wrap text around an image not working
In Indesign 2020, whenever I want to wrap text next to an image, but the text also has an indent the text jumps from the supposed position.
In Indesign 2019 this did not happen. The text was wrapped nicely next to the image, the way you should expect.
My guess what happens here, is that the indent specs are applied not the the edge of the frame, but to the edge of the text. Which corrupts the spacing between the image and the text.
I'm working with the latest 2020 version on iMac with Catalina
Thanks for reporting the issue. We are reviewing it
I presume there is no more news on this issue. Has anyone find an appropriate work-around?
Any updates? This is a massive pain!
Are there any updates to this issue?
I am having the same problem when using ID2020, and notice it when I try to use paragraph styles created in previous versions.
there is an object along the edge of the page, when I apply a paragraph style with just the correct indent for that object (including the space for wrap), the text jumps to twice the required indent.
A workaround seems to be "no wraparound" for the image, copy paragraph style and adjust the indent.
Unfortunately this is time consuming and clunky.
please, please.... hope you will extend the licence for few months... we can not work and use the software with payed licence... Im very unhappy.
Just checking in... Is there a fix for this yet? It's driving me bonkers.

Having this same problem. Causing completely random and unpredictable line indents. One line indents, next doesn't. Two following indent. Next don't. Move text-wrapped object slightly and pattern of indents changes. Really frustrating and problematic, introducing random errors when files updated. Sometimes problem happens just opening doc, sometimes after adjusting text near indented/wrapped object.
Any update on this?
I'm working on the same team and we are still plagued by this issue. Could it be that a changed preference in the new software is combining the left indent value of a paragraph with the text wrap value?
It seems more natural for the left indented paragraph's indent value to be absorbed into the image text wrap value (which was the InDesign 2019 behavior.)
As my teammate stressed this has presented an extraordinary amount of work for us. Expediency on addressing this issue would be appreciated.
I commented earlier today about this problem in our files. I've done more testing to see how many files the bug will affect. At first I thought it might just be that we were opening an older file (2017). But when I tested it with a brand new document, I had the same results. See the attachments.
Textwrap-2019.jpg: a new file in INDD 14.0.3 with filler text and an object with text wrap. Note that the header text is set to a 2 inch left indent, and the object has a substantial text wrap.
Textwrap-2020.jpg: When I first open the file in INDD 15.0.1, everything looks the same. But as soon as I make any change to the text box, it jumps to look like in the attached image. I tried it a few times and it did the same thing whether I moved the text box up a single space with the arrow button, or if I typed something into the text box.
I hope this helps the issue get solved faster. Thanks.
Same problem in our files. I work for an educational publisher and we do a lot of reprints. Now when we prepare a book for reprinting, we have to reproof every page to make sure this issue hasn't caused bumping and overset text. (Because that's what it did in the first file we opened.)
We're using Indesign 15.0.1 on a PC.
PLEASE CORRECT THIS PROBLEM IMMEDIATELY. I NEED to submit a 600-PAGE BOOK THAT IS currentlyFORMATTED INCORRECTLY BECAUSE OF THIS BUG.
I have the same problem, working on an iMac with latest version of Catalina. As soon as a file opens in IDCC 2020, the formatting changes in the undesirable way described so well above. I have a 600+page book now in which each file as been altered against my wishes. I cannot submit it for publication until this issue is fixed. Please give it your most immediate and successful attention. Thank you.
we have the exact same problem - for a 600 page book..... PLEASE FIX QUICKLY
