  2. Linked in file not showing missing font error

    I have designed several booklets for a customer each targeting a specific audience. Some of these pages are the same like this back cover file which I have made using inDesign and is placed as the last page of all the booklets. When I make a print layout setting up the pages [12/1] [2/11] ... to print as a booklet I place all the pages from the indesign file for each book. This means that my print file references a design file which references a variety of pages and fliers of pdf, ai and indd types. I recently had some…

  4. Missing Plugin's

    I currently have Adobe InDesign version 15.0.1 x64 and when I log in it tells me that I have missing plugin's (see below for a list). I am still able to do all other functions but then when I go to package my document it is unsuccessful. The research I have done says I need to add these plugin's but I can't find where to do that in the Help section. I have even uninstalled the app and reinstalled it and I'm still experiencing this issue.

    Missing Plugin's:
    Jobs Model.InDesignPlugin
    Imposition Model.InDesignPlugin
    Channels Model.InDesignPlugin

  5. InDesign does not load printer settings initially

    When opening the print window, InDesign will not use the settings set in the printer driver. But if you switch to a different printer in the drop down list and then back to the first printer again, the correct settings will be loaded.
    Using latest version 14.0.3.
    Printing works fine in other Adobe-softwares and MS Office.

  6. lexmark printer not printing all elements

    We use Lexmark Laser Printer model CS820
    Windows 10 OS

    We use our indesign file as a template to print custom certificates.
    We change the name on the certificate for each customer.
    The printer will not print all elements of a design: i.e. the images and text are missing.

    And

    Files will often not print immediately but will 'sit' in the printer memory for up to several minutes before printing.

    For a print business this is not acceptable. Please advise with working solutions.

    We have a Lexmark CS827 and this works fine.

  7. indesign not packaging, updated to mojave 10.14.6 last week

    Just updated to Mojave 10.14.6, I cannot package my indesign files, it gets half way through and freezes. When I try to cancel, the spinning wheel comes up and the application does not respond, then I have to force quit. Help! I have catalogs to package up.

  8. print booklet

    InDesign CS6, ver. 8.1 both skips and reorders booklet pages.
    In a sixteen-page booklet Print Booklet prints only eight pages and those out of order.
    Sheet A ought to print p. 16 and p. 1 on the obverse and p.2 and p. 15 on its reverse.
    Instead it prints p. 3 and p. 1 on the obverse and p. 4 and p. 3 on the reverse.
    Sheet B continues the confusion, printing p. 6 and p. 5 on the obverse and p. 8 and p. 7 on the reverse.
    .Same results whether I choose 2-up saddle stitch or 2-up perfect…

  10. SRA3 format not found

    Hello everyone,
    I have the problem with printing SRA3 using InDesign.
    When you choose the format, SRA3 is not listed in there. The strange thing is, that we have multiple systems, that don't have this issue, but run on the same OS, using the same printer, driver, etc..
    In Photoshop for example, the SRA3 format is listed, but in InDesign, it is not.
    I'm not sure what could cause this problem.

    Used system:
    Operating system: Mac Mojave
    Printer: Xerox C60

    Thank you

  11. Not all fonts are collected in a package.

    This is for InDesign 14.0.2 x64

    To reproduce the issue, package any file and be sure the include fonts option is ON.

    Expected result is, as it ever was, that all fonts used in the document will be included in the "Fonts" folder of the resulting packaged file.

    Actual result is that some or all of the fonts are omitted.

  12. InDesign 14.02 NOT PRINTING

    Adobe InDesign 14.02

    Only prints a solid line at the top of the page.
    No text, diagrams, etc being printed.
    When I try exporting to pdf, views OK on screen, but only blank pages will print.

    (Also, when I tried reverting to previous version, got message saying could not be done because file too complex or similar. Will try this option again, because I have GOT TO PRINT my files

  18. Print custom page to Xerox 550 using a Creo RIP no longer works

    Recent upgrade from CS4 to CC. When using custom page size although I can print the document it doesn't print correctly. CS4 works perfectly.
    If I print to an SRA3 then the problem doesn't occur.
    I take it an issue/problem is now an idea....really

  20. indesign not printing

    I recently upgraded to Mojave. I have the Adobe Creative Suite Premium and a Canon ip3500. Printing from the internet and PDF work fine. Illustrator CC 2019 and InDesign CC 2019 won't print directly from the app. I find it silly and inefficient to save a document as a PDF for printing.What happened and how do I fix it?

    When I send the file to print, the printer goes through the motion but all I get is a super faint outline of the art. The image is a solid fill of 100% black. The printout is a 20% outline of…
