  1. Separations palette without numbers

    At some point the numbers go missing from the separations preview, when separations is chosen from the palette menu. This applies also to the Ink Limit view. Resetting preferences will help for a while.

  2. All Adobe Products - Cursor Hover is scrolling document and also in field entries

    Whenever I hover over a page it consistently scrolls to the right.
    Whenever I try to add to a field (ie: pixel dimensions in PSD) the number just scrolls like I have my finger held on the button. Tried turning mouse off, using trackpad and restarting 2 times.

    Running Sierra 10.12.6 on a mid 20015 MacBook Pro

  3. muy dificil cambiar de capa los elementos

    Es muy complejo el mover elementos de una capa a otra, ya que el boton de color no responde de inmediato, ni hablar de usar el stylus, con el es imposible hacer, al cabo de varios intentos recien es posible mover, o simplemente hay que darse por vencido

  5. Creative Cloud Panel Broken

    Creative Cloud panel won't let me change libraries from the drop down menu. ID was working perfectly fine before Mac iOS High Sierra. Having to close down ID every 5 minutes due to the cursor issue combined with the CC panel issue makes ID almost impossible to use.

    Seriously, please get ID fixed.

  6. Issue with Presentation Screen Mode with the Dock shown

    Exactly the same as with Photoshop in Full-Screen, described here - https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-and-macoshighsierra.html - in Presentation Screen Mode, the InDesign Document does not expand to fill the entire display when the macOS Dock is shown. The problem does not occur if the Dock is set to “Automatically hide and show”

  7. 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!

  8. Can't change page after selecting an XML node, until setting focus to the main page area

    Summary: After selecting a node in the XML tree, double-clicking any of the page thumbnails or master page thumbnails has no effect. The page won't change until I click on the main page area.
    Steps to reproduce (in Windows):
    1. With a document open in Indesign CC, open the XML Structure pane.
    2. Double click on any of the page thumnails in the "Pages" palette.
    Expected result: I exepct the page to load, that I double clicked.
    Actual result: Nothing happens.

  9. The lists of entries for a cross reference is not ordered

    Some panels with items (e.g. links) can be ordered by clicking the column header. Others cannot. Among these are the lists of references to choose from when inserting a cross-reference. These seem to be totally unordered. As a result, it is a pain to look for the right one (e.g. choose from a few hundred in a large document). I consider this a bug because other panels do have this ordering

  10. font

    I just downloaded version 14.0.3, working on Mac Sierra v. 10.14.6. I can no longer click in the font size box and change point size. In previous versions I could create font sizes such as 11.5, 12.5, etc., but now when I click in the font size box, it turns white and does not allow me to enter a number.

  11. Style names truncated unnecessarily

    The UI for the styles palette truncates the names of the styles to an unusable length if a keyboard shortcut is assigned (even when no truncating is needed).

    In the attached image, we see that there's a lot of space to the right.

    The keyboard shortcuts could also be shortened using the relevant symbols instead of words. eg

    "⌥⇧⊞1"

    instead of

    "Opt+Shift+Num 1"

  12. a hand appears as a hover effect

    Hello,

    for both of my employees, a hand appears as a hover effect as soon as they move the mouse pointer into the Layers menu or the Pages menu. Then the mouse pointer freezes or slows down considerably.

    Both use OSX Mojave together with the latest InDesign CC version.

    How can we fix this problem?

    Thank you for your forthcoming help

  13. Renaming CC Library Elements

    Renaming elements that have been stored in the Creative Cloud Libraries panel is unstable and can use improvements.
    • There is no clear cursor to know where you are in the name.
    • Double clicking to highlight a word, once in the rename mode, common practice everywhere else, ends up opening the library item, not selecting the word you intended.
    • Doing a slow double click on the name, like you can do in the Layers panel to rename a layer doesn't work either.

  14. File Information won't close

    When I open the File Information window to edit the metadata of a file, I can't close the window because the OK and close buttons are off the bottom of the screen.

    When I try to resize the window, it will return to the size it is. In order to close it I have to restart InDesign!

    Please sort this!

  16. Clicking on bookmark in bookmark panel resizes view

    When you double-click on a bookmark in the Bookmarks Panel to go there, the view resizes to a random zoom. (Random as far as I can tell, anyway, there is probably a reason for the zoom level deep in the code).

    Not sure if this is a bug or a feature request, but navigating a long document via the Bookmarks Panel would be much more useful if the view stayed at the same zoom level.

    See: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2630317

    Thank you.

  17. Can no longer filter on fonts with lining figures

    Adobe InDesign version 14.0.2

    I don't know when this started happening, but it's a big issue. It's no longer possible to filter fonts based on lining figures (that is, filter out old style figures). Here's what happens:

    1. With a text box selected, I click the dropdown arrow next to the font name in the Control palette.
    2. I click the Filter dropdown.
    3. With no filters selected, the font list looks as shown in the screenshot I'm attaching called Unfiltered. That screenshot shows a mix of fonts that have lining figures and those that don't.
    4. I select just…

  19. Input field sizes in the "Document setup" pop-up.

    The sizes of width and height input fields are different. Make them the same.
