  3. Drag or transform creates unwanted duplicate of object

    Moving any object (text, image, etc) with either the Move tool or Direct Selection tool creates a duplicate without having any other keys pressed (eg, option/alt).
    Also when repositioning an object with Properties > Transform it also creates a duplicate of the object.

  4. Burmese character composing

    InDesign ME CC 14.0.1
    WorldScript doesn't compose Burmese Unicode characters correctly, shifting the location of some characters and not positioning some accents correctly, do you have a plan to fix this as it has been like it for a long time?? Other languages like Lao and Khmer have been fixed over time, but not Burmese.

  6. Hi, I am using indesign CC 2018. When formatting text as a numbered list, the number is not displayed until I start typing.

    When I hit enter on the numbered text box, I want to see the number I'm about to start entering information for. If I don't see the number, my brain can't move forward onto the next idea.

  7. Pasting Chinese text from illustrator to Indesign changes the content of the text. Help!

    I have text in Illustrator that are in Chinese, using 苹方-简 typeface. When I copy and paste the same text into Indesign, the text changes into new characters.

    I know you need to expand the characters to use as vectors, but sometimes we need to change the text and go back and forth before finalizing. The question is why does it not do that for english text? I copy and paste between illustrator and indesign all the time, but this is the first time I've come across changing the text content completely.

    Running CC 2019 for all.

  8. Spellcheck not working

    The Spellcheck tool does not work as of version 14.0.1
    The spellcheck window pops open but "spellcheck complete"message appears. Clicking "start" does nothing. This happens in all documents. All the settings and user dictionary seem correct.

    I tried selecting all the options in the "search" dropdown menu but nothing works. Spellcheck simply won't start.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  13. 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…

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. 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.…

  19. 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.
