  1. Multiple carets flashing

    As you can see on the second page of this screen clipping, there are two mouse carets. I have a fast computer, including 8 GB Ram, and this should not be happening.

    Thanks in advance

  3. Paragraph Panel – Unwanted Text replacement

    Please fix this bug!!!

    When I go to manually change the "Space before" or "Space After", it replaces all my selected text rather than the value I have selected to change within the panel.

    This is IMPOSSIBLE to work with.

  5. guide color white page and pasteboard color yellow

    This is happened three times now. The guides appear on the screen is white even though there specified color in preferences still the default. The white areas on the screen such as the page and pasteboard color is light yellow.

    The first time resetting the preferences fixed it. The second time it did not but re-profiling the monitor did. The third time neither fixed it and after rebooting InDesign gave me the "configuration error", "error 16".

    I followed the instructions for this error that I found here:
    https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/configuration-error.html#mac_os

    Since this happened InDesign seems to be less stable and before and…

  6. "Keep with next" hasn't been working at all

    "Keep with next" hasn't worked for a long time. It's completely unusable. It doesn't matter if I select "all lines in paragraph" or "at start/end."

    Also, selecting "start a paragraph in the next column" doesn't work either. The text styled that way does not go to the next column; it appears as overset text.

    With interface theme "medium darker" (i.e. the second darkest option) the values of the bleed settings are unreadable in "Export PDF" dialog, when "use document bleed settings" is enabled.

  9. Das Fenster Dateininformationen ist unsichtbar! Aber man muss es mit "Enter" bestätigen, um weiterarbeiten zu können.

    Fenster zeigen, dass die Metadaten wieder angepasst werden können (wie bei früheren Versionen).

  10. Interface while using : no preview

    When I use the scale tool with MORE than one text block, I can't see the block content while checking the "preview" box. I can only see changing the size of the blocks but they seem empty up to clicking on "OK" button. This happens only with many text boxes (or block, I don't know how you call them in english) . You can see a screenshot linked to my message. If I do the same with many image boxes, all is ok. If I do the same with only one text bloc, all is ok.

  11. Too slow to shut down

    If you've opened a document, InDesign is very slow to shut down.

  13. beachball

    Activating a font or fonts while InDesign CC2018 is running results in frustrating beachballs until you restart InDesign. Also do not open your pages panel because it will cost you 5 min. of your life untli ID responds again.
