  1. Color Reading Completely Incorrectly

    Adobe. This is an insane problem to have not fixed.

    Colors are seriously displaying incorrectly. From one program to another the colors look different and they do not at all match the way the color read in 2018.

    The attached shows the same color in Indesign 2019 (left) and Illustrator 2019 (right)

    This is a serious issue that people have been having since the 2019 update and I cannot believe there is not an update to fix this yet.

    Every time Adobe releases an update lately I hesitate to download. The ideas behind the updates are intended to increase functionality…

  2. Placing illustrator files is very very very slow after update

    After updating AI and INDD, placing AI files into INDD is taking a very long time. I made an update to an AI file that was placed into an existing INDD files that contains 13 placed AI files. I only updated a few of the linked AI files. Prior to the AI and INDD update, updating these placed links took a few seconds each max. Now, just to update the two links takes about 2 minutes.

    This MAY be an AI bug, but I don't know how make that determination as I updated bothat the same time.

  3. TIff

    Can't place TIF or PNG files into InDesign. The internet tells me that I can, however I've been trying for hours and it only works when I convert to JPG.

  4. High Quality Display Not working

    I have used INDD for about 15 years. Very experienced. but just upgraded it to CC2019 along with Mac OS Mojave 10.14.1. I can no longer see images in high quality (since the upgrades). I have triple checked everything. (image res, all INDD settings etc..) Is this a known issue?

  5. images are missing

    When opening v.2018 Indesign files or new v.2019 files, bitmap images are not displayed. Images are shown as gray boxes with an X across the box (see attached). Display settings changes do not remedy the problem.

    I have to work in v.2018 until this is fixed.

  6. InDesign Enlarges New Assets larger than their Bounding Box

    Since the new update, every time I drag an image or logo, etc. into Indesign and drag out how large I want the asset to be displayed....
    - Indesign places it (after a short delay), but makes the bounding box smaller than the actual asset. So the logo gets partially covered by the bounding box.

    I'm not using the content aware sizing or anything. The bounding box should exactly match the asset as its being dragged in for the first time. Very frustrating.

    Hi Patrick,
    We’re sorry to hear that the latest version of InDesign is not behaving as per your expectations.
    You said that you are not using Content Aware Sizing. However, could you check once again to see if you have enabled the setting ‘Make Content-Aware Fit the default frame fitting option’ in the Preferences dialog (under General section)?
    Also it would be helpful if you can show us a quick demo of the issue and/or share the file (along with the asset).

  9. For some reason my design in indesign is not fully visible when i am working on it, even when i select fast display or high quality display

    it is so annoying to be working on my design and not to be able to see all of my work on my screen as so much of it is blank, and is only visible when i export it as a jpeg. THis is so unprofessional and inconsistent when trying to design that i can clearly see all of my work as i edit and improve it. Can you please investigate and improve the software so my work is visible as i continue to edit. Also have the screen is in grey and the other half in white like a…

  11. 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.
