  1. text bold italic regular

    Cannot easily change text with bold italics and bold regular to non-bold italics and non-bold regular.

    0. On Windows 7, InDesign 14.0.1 x64:
    1. In a normal text window, type "regular" in non-bold regular Times New Roman font.
    2. Then type "italics" in non-bold italic Times New Roman Font.
    3. Select the entire "regularitalics" phrase.
    4. Click Ctrl-B. The entire phrase correctly becomes bold.
    5. Click Ctrl-B again.
    Expected behavior: The entire phrase should revert back to regular.
    Actual behavior: Only "italics" reverts back to regular. The "regular" remains bold.

  2. Bug Copy&past onto Indesign CC 2019

    The copy-paste function from another software (Adobe acrobat, word, pages, etc.) to Indesign CC 2019 14.0.1 does not work under mac os 10.12.6. This works very well on the Indesign cc 2018 version. I restart the application with CMD + ALT + CTRL + shift to restore the preferences, but the bug persists. Can you help me ?. Sorry for the quality of my English, I'm French. Thank you

  5. Creating New Hyperlink - doesn’t copy the full selected URL

    InDesign CC 13.1
    Mac OS El Capitan 10.11.6

    I discovered this lately due to client complaining about URLs not working after export to PDF.

    As per my video, I select the full URL in the text box, select New Hyperlink, and the field doesn’t populate with full URL.
    After some testing, the cut off point seems to be random and don’t happen specifically at hyphens or periods.

    Whether the URL flows to multiple lines or is on the same line, I get the same result.

    What is causing this? This is a big issue since I work on documents that…

  7. Table Resizing

    I love the table feature in inDesign, however there is one behavior that I wish was different. When I go to resize a row or column it pushes all the rows/columns down rather than adjusting the space according to the size of the table box. I have found many times that I would prefer setting the overall table size and then it doesn't go beyond that.

  8. Edit and Copy text box, delete another box, copied box is lost

    MacBook Pro (2018, 13-inch, 2.3 Ghz Intel Core i5), with High Sierra (10.13.6), and InDesign (14.0.1).

    I have two text boxes - Box1 and Box2 - with text in them.

    I edit the text in Box1, copy Box1 (not the contents; the text box itself).

    I delete Box2 by pressing the Backspace key while Box2 is selected.

    I paste, and get Box2.

    Expected functionality: The box I specifically copied - Box1 - should be resident in the clipboard. Not Box2.

    Deleting an item should NOT copy it to the clipboard and overwrite the previous clipboard contents.

  10. References

    Problem

    There does not seem to be a straight forward way to manage references in a scientific text.[1-3] While simple references[1] may be managed by bending the cross-reference tool[2] more advanced referencing situations[1,3] are not easily dealt with.

    Suggestion

    In the raw text, cite-keys can be inserted. The cite-keys are unique identifiers for the text entries (either in a table at the end of the document or in a separate bibtext file). Then a relatively simple functionality that basically does search-and-replace work could do the rest. Search for the first cite-key in the document, replace all its occurrences with 1.…

  11. Anchored objects in text on path have inconsistent vertical & horizontal positioning

    Pasting the same graphic in text on a path appears at different vertical and horizontal locations relative to the baseline depending on where on the path it's pasted. CC 14.0.1, no character or paragraph styles applied.

  16. Converting footnotes to endnotes ignores some endnote-settings

    Indesign CC 2019 (oct)

    When converting footnotes to endnotes the endnotes-settings for creating them at the end of story or in a place gun are ignored. Endnotes from converted footnotes are always placed in a new frame at the end of document.

    Expected behaviour: Converted footnotes should appear in the place gun if the endnote-setting says so.

    (Sidenote/Opinion: letting indesign insert a _single_ page seems like a workaround - as this might reflow a large document and also totally jumble up the page composition. I know that ID has become way more clever in dealing with odd/even switching of pages…

  17. What about screenplay? Will InCopy replace Story?

    Hello everyone.

    I know that Story will be discontinued, and I noticed that the InCopy just came to play.

    I was happy to have a screen writing software that I have already paid for, even though I am an adobe client for it's video editing softwares.
    If InCopy is capable to assist me on writing, I will not need to spend more money on writing

    What I need from InCopy is what I had on story regarding to format, I mean: Scene Header, Action, Character, Parenthesis and Dialog... I just hit one key and I can swap between what I…

  18. Going to the end of the line includes the whitespace(s) also

    Typing in illustrator has an issue when going to the end of the line - when pressing the End key moves the cursor to the end of the line, including the space; therefore typing again will prepend text to the word on the other line.
    To reproduce:
    - Type a text which is long enough to break on the next line. Let's say, the text will break between "word1 word2"
    - Go to the first line.
    - Hit End, then x on the keyboard.
    + Expected result: "word1x word2"
    + Actual result: "word1 xword2"
    All text editors prdouce the expected…

  19. Go back to old method of "space after" paragraphs

    I'm fine with the concept of allowing users to adjust the "spacing between paragraphs using same style." But the way this feature was added doesn't make sense: I think you should have left the old "space after" system the way it was, and allowed users to add the "spacing between paragraphs using same style" box as an extra option. The way you set it up (unless I'm misunderstanding something), anyone wanting to put spacing between paragraphs now has to enter data into two boxes, whether they want certain sections to have custom spacing or not. It makes the "spacing between…

    In your example, the paragraph ‘Introduction: My Life…’ and ‘Update’ use the same Paragraph Style and the setting ‘Space Between Paragraphs Using Same Style’ is set to 0p0. That’s why the Space After setting of 1p4 is having no effect.
    To make it to work, change the ‘Space Between…’ back to its default setting of ‘Ignore’.
    Hope this helps.
