  1. None Master issue

    I don't understand how the None Master works. If I create a document with no margin and no columns, then go to the A Master and add margin and columns, sometimes the None Master will delete the margins and columns, and sometimes it seems to adopt the margins and columns from the A Master.

    I would recommend that the None Master ALWAYS delete all the columns and margins so it's a blank page. Or at least consistently return to the columns and margins of the A Master, but blank would be better.

  4. 15.0.2 Margins & Columns Issue on Body Page 1 (Windows only)

    Version: 15.0.2

    Steps to reproduce the issues:
    I was teaching 3 students on 15.0.2 (all on Windows) how to create a new document. We set up a 12-page file and specified 3 columns and changed the top margin in the New Document dialog box. With the preview checkbox on, body page 1 did not reflect the changes. We could see the bleed and slug lines appearing when defined. We could also see the A in the corner of the the body page 1 icon in the Pages panel, indicating that A-Master was assigned.

    Expected result
    When you define a new…

  7. Need Permissioning for File Access and Edit for In Design File. WE should be allowed to set up security to prevent unauthorized access to

    We should be able to create optional security in terms of file opening, file edit and file save/print fo all In Design Files. Permissions should be able to be modified from remote location, if for example a former employee with previous permissions copies file and takes proprietary template. This should be for desk top and remote server accessed files. Especially Server hosted files. I cannot believe this is not possible. Similar to PDF Files which are password protected. In Design files should have same security feature set as PDFs. This is critical and urgent.

  10. Indesign creates blank pages

    While I type, in some pages, Indesign moves the text to next page, and creates a blank page. With each letter I type the texts keeps moving on from page to page. I live this in several documents with different layouts.

    The version I'm using is 15.0.1, win 10 x64

  11. "Option - Click' to resize page

    Version 15.0.1 Indesign 2020

    When resizing the page, the 'shortcut' of 'Option - Click' to resize the page is now not working. It now just springs back to the size it was.

  12. Can not open new document or a new file I'm working on.

    It happens once in a while. It has no connection to corrupted files.
    The Indesign is open, but the document it self doesn't show! Also if I ask to open a new document.
    Tried Relaunching, Tried Updating to Version.
    It all seems to work as a VOODOO ... Very annoying!
    Is this a bug you have?

  13. Revert Feature

    The 'Revert' feature is greyed out & cannot be used.
    This needs to be corrected.
    It takes extra time to manually put in original dimensions on a document.

  14. Import Word file - cannot set 'Import as Static Text' as Default Preset

    When I import a Word document I want the option 'Import as Static Text' ticked all the time.

    The problem is that if I tick 'Import as Static Text' and make it a new Default Preset, InDesign remembers this until I quit InDesign and then relaunch it. The relaunched InDesign doesn't remember it - it remembers the Preset name, but it doesn't remember to tick 'Import as Static Text'.

    This happens in CC2019 and CC2020. Could you please fix it so that the Preset you make remembers to keep 'Import as Static Text' ticked all the time, even when you…

  15. text variable "Year>Modification Date" prematurely outputting "2020" (in 2019)

    I just updated to InDesign 2020 on 12-27-2019 and today (12-30-19) was updating some ID documents that have a text variable in the master pages (defined as Year > Modification Date), which suddenly (a few days premature!) is now showing up as 2020, even though we're still in 2019! I thought that changing it to Year > Output Date (which changes the field to show the correct 2019) was a temporary solution, but then my new PDFs output with the date field changed to 2020! ANY document I generate a new PDF from now automatically changes the date field to…

  16. InDesign Documentation

    I found out through Adobe support that page transitions in an interactive PDF created using InDesign only work in full screen mode. If this is true, your documentation should state this.

    I also found out that the SWF function has been removed for InDesign 2020. Please update your documentation to let users know that this is no longer available in 2020, but is still available in 2019.

  17. não consigo caracter especial

    não consigo inserir número de paginas como caracter especial. Faço o procedimento correto mas no final ele não insere o caracter.
    só fica o prompt piscando dentro da caixa de texto.
    E não sei porque a minha master page está cinza quando eu seleciono ela em vez de estar azul!!!

  18. Ceñir texto

    Hola,
    al actualizar documentos anteriores a la versión 15.01 de InDesign las imagenes con ceñir texto el sangrado es incorrecto, provocando cambios en la maquetación.
    Si ese mismo documento se abre en la versión 14.03 la función de ceñir texto funciona correctamente.
    Enviamos dos ejemplos.

  19. Buggy open a file, save as doesn't work, ID 2020, Mac OS 10.15.1 (19B88)

    First open file always says the file is being used by other, although is not.
    Save as doesn't work, says corrupt file. Occurs only on Mac, no problems with office PC:s. Working on a local server.

  20. 2020 Pages Window Broken

    Ever since updating to Indesign 2020 the pages window just doesn't work. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling a number of times but no matter what I do it just shows it as completely blank. This makes it extremely difficult to access anything, let alone my master pages.
