  1. Placing objects with gradient from illustrator.

    Hi, I - and not only I - expierenced ugly 'new feature' that is can't copy objects with gradients from Illustrator 23.0.1 to new version of InDesign 14.0.1 (in previous version all works fine) in editable format. Yes I heard about placing ext. file - but this not the sollution. For many version of InDesign this works perfectly then why now this feature is broken?

  5. applying colour to grayscale images against coloured background previews incorrectly

    When I place a grayscale jpg in a frame with a background colour of C100/Y85/M0/K38 and apply a colour of C0 / M84 / Y100 K13, it displays correctly, red image against blue background. When I export that to PDF, the PDF preview shows no red, and a black box with the grayscale image knocked out in blue. When I open that in Acrobat Pro, it again displays correctly.

  6. swatch alias

    When exporting a PDF and ik want to alias extra Spot-swatches to a FC-colour-Swatch.
    But these Swatch stetting should not be in the saved indesign file.
    I want to be able to only merge the swatch-alias in de PDF export (setting).

    When I those it during the PDF-export.
    It should only apply on de PDF export.
    Not in the design file Swatch setting.
    Otherwise I should have edited it Swatch-setting of my design.

    Thanks

  7. SuperMegaBlack

    You have added a new color swatch called "SuperMegaBlack." WHY?!?!? It has precisely the same CMYK values as simple "Black." Very misleading, and a very stupid idea.

  9. swatches don't merge when importing paragraph styles

    When importing paragraph styles from the CC Library, the swatch colors for the styles get added to already existing swatches creating duplicates rather than merging. By the time all paragraph styles are added, there are 10+ swatches of the exact same color....

    The PANTONE 540 CP swatch, when added in InDesign, is a CMYK ‘Process’ Color swatch – it comes from the PANTONE Color Bridge Coated library. This swatch was used in a Paragraph Style and this style was added to the CC Libraries.

    You also created another swatch (a custom swatch) which has the same name – PANTONE 540 CP but it is a CMYK ‘Spot’ Color swatch. This was present in the document when the Paragraph Style (created above) was added from CC Libraries to the Paragraph Styles panel.

    When the Paragraph Style was added from CC Libraries to the Paragraph Styles panel, it found that a swatch with the name “PANTONE 540 CP” already exists in the document. Since swatches with the same name but different definitions cannot exist together in a document, it added the incoming swatch with a different name – “PANTONE 540 CP 2”…

  10. color theme menu is off the screen and I can't resize it or see bottom of menu

    when i open the color them window, the bottom of the menu pops up off screen. I can't see the bottom of the color theme menu and I'm unable to resize it.

  11. CC2018 Swatch panel bug

    The InDesign CC 2018 swatch panel displays different sets of swatches when set to different view options. “Small name” seems the most complete. Swatches are missing with the other settings especially after opening a document from a previous version of InDesign.

  14. Issue with Right clicker users and selecting anything from any menu that requires them to scroll

    Hi

    We have 2 Indesign users who users the right click on their mouse as their primary button.

    Both have been having issues when going to swatches for example and they have to scroll to select a swatch, when the mouse cursor moves the selection moves with it.

    We have done these things to try to resolve the issue without any luck.
    - For the first user we gave her a brand new laptop with Windows 11, and installed a fresh install of Indesign 2023, but still has the same issue.
    - The second user is using Windows 10, we…
