  1. Cannot enter text size if document is on second display

    When using 2 displays, if the document is not on the same page as the menu bar, typing a new text size in the text-size field does not work. Moving the document to the same page as the application frame makes the bug go away.

  3. InDesign CC 2018 ME text frame problem

    InDesign CC ME 2018

    I work with international magazine. Usually I work with English text but once i a while I have to do some Arabic content. I installed Indesign CC 2018 ME on my machine and it works perfectly well except. When I create a new document in InDesign CC ME which is normal meaning reads from left to right and try to place a doc document into it text frame appears to be right to left and this issue is totally inconvenient.

  4. character panel and control panel don't match

    I've noticed sometimes when changing the font in one panel, the other does not reflect the change—they should always be in sync. The change does not occur on the document either—until both panels are manually made to match. So it appears 'Character' settings in the Control Panel are behaving independent of the floating Character Panel. These are mac installed fonts. Not Typekit.

  6. Font lost when pasting text to ID 2018 from updated Excel for Mac 2016

    InDesign CC 2018
    Mac OS High Sierra and Mac OS El Capitan
    Excel Mac 2016 updated

    Font family used in inDesign document is not found after pasting table text from Excel file (a process that has been used successfully for some years) . First happened in High Sierra, and thinking it was the OS update that caused it, I reinstalled El Capitan. Tested the copy/paste using a newly installed version of Office without updating it, and had no problem. Updated Excel and the problem returned.

  7. The numbered portion of a heading in its own frame cannot be included in conditional text

    Windows 10 InDesign version 13.1 x64 (CC up-to-date)
    I created a sequentially numbered head using bullets and numbering in Style editor. Placed the head in its own frame at the top of a page (# mark at the end of the head). Selected the head (variously using click-drag and 4-click) Only the directly entered text highlighted - not the numbered portion, not the # symbol. I applied a text condition. When the condition was made invisible, the directly-entered text disappeared as expected, but the numbered portion of the text ("Section 9:") did not. Numerous attempts to select the numbered portion…

  8. En Dashes turned into a Russian Cyrillic Small letter Yeru

    On Feb. 19, 2018, I worked on a document in InDesign CC 13.0 (Mac). I saved the document and all was good. Yesterday, March 28, 2018, I made some edits to the same document using CC 13.1 (Mac). But when a co-worker reviewed it, they noticed that the En Dashes (Unicode: 2013) I had used as a Bullet character had turned into a Russian glyph (Cyrillic Small letter Yeru, Unicode: 044B).

    The bulleted section of the document was not revised between Feb. 19th and yesterday. The edits I made were in other sections of the document. Nor did I change…

  9. Table Footers Prevent Auto Row Creation

    Normally, if a table with fewer body rows than will be needed if content gets pasted, body rows get created automatically. However, if there is a footer row, then the additional rows get created in the footer.
    This behavior does not seem intentional since the automatically-created body rows seems more useful. A workaround can be to remove the footer row, then add it back after the contents have been pasted and the body rows created.

  12. finding font instance

    Using the Find Font menu utility, I highlight the missing font then click Find Next, which many times does not work even if there are many instances of the font. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Very frustrating.

    and

    THIS IS NOT AN IDEA -- it is a BUG ... try saying "BUG". Now write it out. See, it's hot so hard, is it?

  13. grep query doesn't work to delete multiple page breaks

    Hi,
    I wanted to delete all page breaks (manual, odd, even) in an InDesign document with Grep:

    Find: [~P~L~E]+
    Replace: \r

    This query doesn't work, it finds nothing.
    If I use one by one it's prefect. What' wrong?

    (Attached test-file)

    Best regards,

    Egyed Serf

  15. Germandbls in all caps with Adobe Composer

    This is to report that the "World-Ready Composers" and the regular "Composers" do not behave in sync concerning the Germandbls (upper case German sharp s) in all caps. More precise: The "World-Ready Composers" do it right, while the regular "Composers" do it wrong:
    Using the latter and applying all caps, the germandbls is generally substituted by SS, which shouldn't be. Modern fonts leave the decision to the typographer whether a Germandbls or SS is applied. In any case the first choice should be the Germandbls.

  16. Font appearance issues in Id 2018

    I have recently purchase a new Mac. Running High Sierra 10.13.2 and Id 2018. Any time I open a file with Helvetica in it the font is garbled. Is this one of the issues that people have been experiencing with the upgrade to High Sierra? How can this be fixed?

    I can't downgrade my operating system as the computer is brand new and I need to use this computer for work. Any help would be much appreciated.

  18. Texte disappear when replacing font by another using Find a font in the Texte menu

    Using the command "Search for a font" in the "Text Menu" to replace a font (Times New Roman for example) by another (Adobe Garamond Pro for example), the texte disappear, it is erased if I valid "Replace All".
    I have to verify it works for the first occurrences before to validate "Replace All" to be sure the bug will not occur.
    This is very insecure if we don't verify and trust the command "eyes closed" !

  19. middle east defaults

    Controlling defaults for ME options - doesn't work for cut/paste?

    I'm using the ME edition of InDesign 2018. The majority of my work is exclusively left-to-right, so I've set all default options to those appropriate to English (UK) text. This works fine when I'm creating a text box with the text tool, but when I cut/paste text without having a cursor in a pre-existing text box, the automatically-created new text box always has "right-to-left text direction" selected in its Story options. Is there any way I can change this default?

  20. Find Glyph uses character style set in the Text tab

    It's not possible to set a character style in the Glyph tab of the Find/Change window. But if you set a character style in the Text tab, the Glyph tab uses that style to limit the search scope.

    Steps to reproduce:


    1. Start a new document, add a character style. (Doesn't matter what formatting you add to the character style.)

    2. Place a text frame and enter 'xx'.

    3. Apply the character style you added in step 1 to the first x.

    4. Set the character style in the Find Format field of the Text tab of the Find/Change window.

    5. Go to the Glyph…
