  1. 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.…

  2. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  12. English:UK spelling currently not picking up US spellings 'ize', 'izing'

    InDesign is not currently detecting US spellings that use 'ize' in text that is set as 'English: UK'. (example 'organize'). We have checked to make sure there are no local overrides, such as paragraph or character styles set to 'English: USA' (there aren't), and that the undetected spelling has not been added to the custom dictionary (they haven't been). Failure to pick up 'ize' spellings is a departure from previous behaviour and is quite problematic for our workflow. Other US English spellings (such as 'behavior') are being detected.

  16. Spell Check changing to Catalan (Spanish) half-way through

    Spell check is changing from English to Catalan on a particular page of my document every time I check it. I have tried changing it back and will select English and then it will still say Catalan and try to change all of my words to Spanish.

  17. overset endnotes

    Not sure where to post this. I do a lot of journals using Indesign. I find that in Indesign 2018 and 2019 when you place a Word.doc with endnotes it brings in the endnotes okay but only the first page. The other endnotes are overset. It does not do this in Indesign 2017. Can something be done to fix this?

  19. Raleway no longer a font

    Raleway has been a font I've used for a week. I used it this morning and came back after lunch and it's no longer an option.

    Can I please have this font back?

  20. table changes format for no reason

    When I create a new table and attempt to drop it into an Indesign CC 2019 layout, it completely changes format and cell sizes and is missing type in some cells.... I've attempted to place it into a new doc, and old doc it isn't staying formatted.
