  1. When flowing text in multiple textboxes, Object Styles settings are ignored

    1. Indesign 13.0.1 OSX
    2. Create an object style and set it as the default for new Text Frames. Create a new Text Frame. Click on the linking box at the corner and hold down alt to link the Text Frame to a number of new TF's. Draw a number of new linked TF's with the alt key pressed.
    3. All Text Frames should have the Object Style set as default
    4. The new TF's have an OS of [None]

      Hi,
      This has been the behaviour since the beginning. See the link https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/object-styles.html where it states “This category is applicable only if the object is an unthreaded text frame.”

      Please let us know any use-cases where this can be beneficial so that we can process this as a “Feature modification request”

      You can ctrl(cmd)+a in a text frame and then apply the paragraph style as a workaround.

    • two font sizes listed in character panel

      I am applying a paragraph style and for some reason the font size was not changing to the size specified. There is no character style applied to the text to override the paragraph style. I did notice that my character panel showed two font sizes, with the second size, the one I want, in parenthesis. Not sure what is going on here.

        The font size in parentheses is the new font size when the document has been resized using Liquid Layout’s Scale rule. The font size outside the parentheses is the original font size – that is, it looks like this:
        Original Font Size(New Font Size) – eg., 12 pt(8.1).
        Have you selected an Alternate Layout page where this rule was applied?

      • properties panel

        The tutorials all show the properties panel, but it is nowhere to be found. I tried the Windows tab, no dice. It's really annoying.

          Please check once after cleaning InDesign Prefs. Properties panel is available in the default Essentials workspace you see on launching InDesign. It is also available under Window menu.

        • Endnote Font Size Problems

          Version: InDesign 14

          Steps: When placing an endnote in a frame "Loaded by Place Curser", the font size used for the end note does not honor the font size determined by the style. This includes when the paragraph style is set in the endnote options, as well as when the paragraph style is applied by selecting the endnote text.

          1. Create endnote style, and set it in endnote options
          2. Set endnote text frame to "loaded by place curser" in endnote options
          3. Add an endnote to the text, and place endnote text frame
          4. The Endnote text added to…

            Thanks for reporting the issue.
            How are you adding the Endnote text to the frame? Are you copying text and pasting it? If so, have you tried using ‘Paste without formatting’?
            Please provide the information that is sought by Payal.

          • Clip to Frame paragraph shading

            InDesign 13.0 x64 Windows

            Create a paragraph style with paragraph shading, width set to column. Set positive left and right offsets. Enable "Clip to Frame".

            Expected result: Shading does not extend beyond frame.
            Actual result: Shading offset is clipped on left frame margin, but clipping is not honored on right frame margin.

            • Indesign freezing when trying to change leading in style

              Indesign CC 2017.1 release

              12.1.0.56 64 build
              I am trying to change the leading for a particular style that is used in footnotes and when I attempt the change Indesign simply freezes. At the moment the leading is 9 pt but I want to increase to 11 pt. I don't have this problem with ordinary styles
