  2. InDesign palettes/panels do not expand or open when Application frame is Off

    These small panels that you can attach to the large panels would not expand now after the update to 13.0.1
    I had problems with it already 2 updates back.

  3. Non-Printing Layers in Italics

    InDesign no longer italicizes the name of non-printing layers in the layers panel. This made a scan of which layers were printing or non-printing quick and easy.

    With the 2018 update, it seems like non-printing layer names just display as a SLIGHTLY lighter weight of the standard layer name type, making it hard to tell which layers are doing what at a glance.

    An update that clearly demarcates non-printing layers would be appreciated.

  4. Moving objects between layers using the layers panel doesn't always work

    I struggle with moving objects between different layers in an InDesign document by using the layers panel. Often it takes two or more attempts to move objects. I wonder if it's the tolerance of the buttons or if this is genuinely a bug.

  5. Scripts Panel Sorting

    InDesign 2017.1 (v12.10.56); macOS High Sierra 10.13

    When I open the Scripts Panel, nothing is in order. It used to be in alphabetical order like the Scripts Panel folder in my user library.

  7. Workspace disappearing and not being able to get it back

    Sometimes all my right-handed Tools, that I carefully assembled in a workspace i like, disappear, like pages, Colors etc. Although being able to click them in den Window-Menu, nothing appears. The only way to get them back is to change to another workspace and re-create my own workspace piece by piece, which then might last a few weeks before not being able to use them again.

    Any ideas what goes wrong here?
    What should i check?

    Kind regards, Thomas

  8. EPUB Interactivity panel resizes

    In the release version of InDesign CC 2018, when you resize the EIP panel, then close it or make it part of a workspace, it should open at the same size you left it.

    In CC 2018, it opens in the size you last left it, but immediately snaps to a very small size, forcing you to resize it EVERY time.

    This makes working with interactive features very cumbersome. Please fix! Thank you.

  9. import options are collapsed (CC2017)

    when importing a file, the import options are collapsed, so you always have to check if the "import options" are marked. can reproduce. should be uncollapsed like the versions before.

  10. Not enough contrast in Check Spelling dialogue box

    InDesign CC 2017's Check Spelling results interface is fairly unreadable. In the "Not in Dictionary" and "Uncapitalized Sentence" box, more contrast is needed between the text and background shading. This is true in all appearance settings (dark, medium, light).
    Thanks!

  11. Tool fly outs appearing on wrong monitor

    I am using a dual monitor setup, my left hand monitor is a standard widescreen monitor, my right hand monitor is a Wacom Cintiq.

    When I have InDesign maximized on the Wacom and attempt to access a fly out menu on the toolbar it opens the fly out menu on the very right-hand edge of the standard monitor. Which makes it impossible for me to select from the fly out menu without having to put down the stylus, switch to a mouse, and repeat the action to bring up the fly out menu and then select the item I wanted.…
