  1. Roboto fonts not working in indesign

    I have tried everything to add Roboto fonts to creative cloud to be used in InDesign but nothing works. First, I click on the "f" in the upper right hand corner, and it just spins and spins saying loading. The next thing I tried was going to Adobe Fonts website and 'Activiating all Robot Fonts." Even though it shows as activated, Whenever I try to export my design it says following fonts (Roboto family) aren't currently available.

  2. 2022 InDesign bugs

    when using ID 2021 and before, When I sized a graphic, say, from 100 to 50%, the info box would say the graphic is now 50%. In ID 2022, when I reduce a graphic, the box says it is 100%. I am not liking this.

  3. Layer visibility toggle should indicate mixed visibility status of sub layers

    InDesign V 16.4, Current Creative Cloud as of 2021-11-14.
    Currently - The top Layer visibility icon (within the layers palette) does not indicate a mixed visibility status of sub layers.
    I have a rather complex layer set in a document I'm working on where I have master pages with master pages based on other master pages and linked objects within the document.
    I just spent over an hour trying to locate a hidden object. I incorrectly assumed that, when looking at the layers palette, with all the layer stacks closed (layer list contracted where only the top level was shown)…

  4. [INDD 2020 and 2021] Document fonts folder does not work with fonts for placed SVGs

    Provide a font file with the Document fonts folder for a placed SVG graphic where the font is not embedded.
    RESULT: InDesign will not use the font for rendering text with the placed SVG graphic.

    ALSO: Even if the font is installed for ALL USERS in the system on Windows 10 InDesign will not package the font that is needed with the placed SVG graphic.

    One cannot be sure what fonts are needed with placed SVG graphics. When InDesign documents are saved, closed and re-opened, Preflight and Type > Find Fonts… will not show them.

    The only check you can…

  8. Weird Bug with Resize to Frame

    Resize frame to content messes up and I'm not sure if it's something to do with a setting I have set since this doesn't always happen.

    Basically, I'll have a frame around some content with text in it.

    When I hit "resize frame to content" ctrl-alt-c, it resizes the frame to the full document width, which looks like the example.

    I obviously expect the frame to resize to the content, not to be super wide like the entire document.

  9. Linked PDF images not exporting to PDF correctly

    InDesign (16.2.1), Windows 10

    Logos saved as PDFs and placed in an InDesign file appear with a gray vertical line on the right side of the image frame when the file is converted to PDF. There is no stroke or fill on the image frame; further, I checked a PDF with the same PDF logo in it that I created a month ago and it did not have the line. The line appears when the PDF is printed.

    We found that reverting back to v16.1 resolved the issue. Also, relinking a JPG or TIF of the logo worked in 16.2.1,…

  10. New Bug Indesign 16.2.1 | Contours conversion error (inside/outside aligned)

    This bug seems to only affect older InDesign documents and graphic elements from them that were created before the update to 16.2.1. The bug can NOT be reproduced in completely new 16.2.1 documents with newly created elements!

    What happens:
    For example, if you create a circle with the dimensions 200X200mm and a 10mm thick outline, this results in a circle with the dimensions
    210X210mm

    But if you now change the contour orientation from center to inside, the dimensions change unproportionally in height:

    Instead of 200 x 200 mm the circle becomes quasi
    an "egg" 200 x 199.999 mm

    If you…

  12. Handling error sizing with frame with contour (centered/outside).New bug!? Frames with contour: Are now shifted into each other after simult

    Scaling with undesirable erroneous result:
    Affects frames whose outline is either:
    A. centered or
    B. aligned to the outside of the frame
    (Frames where the contour is aligned on the inside of the frame are not affected by this error. There the scaling still works correctly as desired).

    Recently, such frames (with a contour A/B) shift into each other undesirably after simultaneous resizing (see screenshot) and lose their original arrangement to each other!

    I don't know with which version this new bug appeared,
    but it is annoying and makes work slower again.

    With Illustrator the error does not occur. There…

  13. No frame edges for lines or ankerpoint visible anymore?

    Problem: Line objects no longer have "frame edges" in the normal view! Lines without line thickness, white lines (which do not lie over a background), individual nodes are thus invisible in the layout!

    To find slipped lines again or to find several rest fragments like single nodes again becomes a patience and search game!

    The (line-) or frame edges appear only if you either select everything or if you move the mouse over the line or the single node randomly (mouseover). Simple is different!

    This was not always so! No idea when this was changed! But it was a very…
