  1. conflict of making your document smaller than your margins

    InDesign CC 2019 v. 14

    The New ”New document” dialog box doesn't give any warning of the conflict of making your document smaller than your margins allow. It just changes the width and/or height back to what it was as a default if your margins are too large and does not warn the user about it.

    And if the user fails to notice that the size switches back, it will create a document that’s not the size intended. User may not even realize what is it that went wrong.

    In the Legacy New Document dialog box, when you click OK,…

      InDesign is trying to be helpful here by intelligently reverting to the last good value in the New Document dialog since it’s not possible to create a new document with the values entered by you.

      We hope you find this useful.

    • InDesign CC2018 is not compatible with Nvidia GPU anymore

      With NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2 GB and MacOS High Sierra 10.13.3,
      pictures in boxes are going to be greyed, when manipulate the border/box. They are also going to be greyed when moving the content. With CC2017 it works properly. I was in contact with a chat support person already, who can proof this.

        Hi ,

        Can you please share screenshot for this issue. And , are you facing this issue for all the documents ?

      • Command + option + drag no longer copies text box

        Have used this feature for 20 years and now the double arrow indicating that a box is being copied shows up, but the text box is not actually copied--the box just moves.

          This is working as it should – that is, duplicating the selected object.

          Please update to the latest available version of InDesign (13.1) via Creative Cloud application. Before launching InDesign, delete the Application Preferences and Caches to ensure that any corrupt preferences are not causing this issue to happen.

          Please let us know if you still experience this issue.

          Thanks,
