  1. Edit with/Other cannot open an application on MacOS

    Select a placed image in InDesign. Choose Edit With / Other from the menu. When double clicking an application in the Open File dialog, InDesign opens the .app folder instead of executing the app.

    The behaviour is observed in CC2015, CC2017 and CC2018

  2. Minor Illustrator file changes not detected

    InDesign does not recognize that an placed AI file has changed -- if the change is minor, for instance shifting graphics on the artboard. If Illustrator artwork is moved relative to the artboard, then just saved (command S), the file does not show as modified in the Links panel. In order for InDesign to see it as modified, the Illustrator file must be Saved As and overwritten. This is an ongoing problem for at least the last three iterations of InDesign, but specs are:
    InDesign CC 2017 13.0
    Illustrator CC 2017 22.0.0
    OSX 10.13

  3. Part of the content disappears in high detail mode (300% and more)

    This bug is appear after my last update to CC 2018 in October 2017. Part of content is disappears when I change scale toward high details. In example, from 200 to 300%. Moving a sheet or another manipulation are not help. The computer is good enough with 16Gb memory under Windows 10.

  6. Rendering of Bitmaps with High Sierra not as smooth as they should be.

    Since upgrading to High Sierra, I am finding in High Quality Display, bitmaps are not rendering smoothly on screen or in print.

    Exporting to PDFs gets over this, but not great when composing, and needing to see images as they will be.

  9. Images re-imported and resized in Windows lose scale settings when opened on Mac

    Version of Adobe InDesign CC: 12.1.0.56

    Steps to reproduce the issues:
    Import document from Word as source into MacOS version.
    2. Open file on Windows computer, re-import one of the images via the Links box and resize to match previous settings (e.g., 91.4%)
    3. Save.
    4. Open again in Mac, and the updated images have lost their sizing and blow outside of the Frame..
    Expected result:
    Image sizing should be retained across platforms.

    Actual result:
    Thee updated images have lost their sizing and blow outside of the Frame..
