  2. Variable fonts broken with World Ready Paragraph Composer

    Using the World-ready composer essentially breaks the glyph width interpolation of Variable Fonts. The outcome is that text set in a Variable Font will receive the Variable Font's default style's horizontal glyph widths for any axis location, resulting in unusable overlap or gaps.

    Attached you find a sample Indesign file with comparison and a screenshot thereof. This happens with any Variable Font I have tested so var, but to complete the same test case as included, download https://github.com/adobe-fonts/source-sans-pro/releases/download/3.006R/source-sans-pro-3.006R.zip and install VAR/SourceSansVariable-Roman.otf as well as OTF/*.otf files.

  4. Palettes disappear after shutting and opening new documents

    Version of InDesign 2020
    Mac, OS Catalina 10.15.2

    Palettes disappear after shutting and opening new documents

    Every time I open or shut a document, my palettes disappear. Then i have to open and reposition them over and over. This is maddening! I used to work in Adobe CS5 for the longest time and that never gave me an issue. Now that I've updated everything, InDesign is sooo slow, and shuts down all my palettes. I hate this.
    Would like to see an Indesign update that fixes the palette issue and the slowness of InDesign. Also I would like to see…

  5. Footnotes disappear

    v. 15.0.1 x64, Windows

    I am working on a multichapter magazine.

    Every chapter starts with a title and the author’s name. After the name comes a footnote call.

    If I make changes that add or remove a page in a chapter, all the footnotes on the following chapters disappear. They can be recover by removing the asterisk and inserting it again.

    Hi,
    Part of this issue was fixed with the latest release of InDesign 15.0.1

    For all new files created with ID 15.0.1 the issue will not come. For older files opened in ID 15.0.1, you will have to resize, move or do some text editing operation to make the footnote appear

    In case you are still facing the issue in new files created post ID 15.0.0 , please share a sample file

    Thanks
    amaarora@adobe.com

  6. In a pixel-dimensioned InDesign document the pixels are always magnetic. There is no option like in Illustrator to deselect 'magnetic pixels

    In all version of InDesign, as far as I can remember, pixel dimensioned documents have magnetic pixels. In Illustrator there is an option to deselect magnetic pixels. In InDesign it fails. At least, I think. And the technical assistant from Adobe thinks so.
    For instance: if you try to draw a rectangle 3.4 x 4.2 pixels, you can not.

  7. Scrolling and zoom issue

    Scrolling and zoom won't work all of a sudden. The ruler shows I am scrolling or zooming, but the pages remain stationary. This is happening while indexing. I have to close file and re-open

  10. enableRedraw = false ignored during script run

    During a loop to load text snippets to my page ID 2020 ignores the fact that enableRedraw=false and DOES redraw the page on every loop

    app.scriptPreferences.enableRedraw = false;

        do {
    
    app.doScript(insertTexts2, ScriptLanguage.JAVASCRIPT, undefined, UndoModes.ENTIRE_SCRIPT, "Insert Texts " + C2Place + ":" + V2Place);
    } while (libs[8][3].geometricBounds[0] < pageTextBottom);
    app.scriptPreferences.enableRedraw = true;

    The text is inserted into 8 different frames -- during the loop it SHOULDN'T redraw the page -- but it does (slowing the script down)

  11. translate

    Very often I need to translate booklets that were designed in InDesign. Some booklets can be huge containing many text fields. Many translators request to send them the text in a MS Word file. Therefore, i have to copy-paste all the text text-box by text-box. And then repeat the same process to transfer the translation back to InDesign from MS Word.
    It would have been nice if InDesign could automatically export ONLY the text from text boxes into MS Word using HTML tags. Like:

    <textbox00001> text text text</textbox00001>
    <textbox00002> abc</textbox00002>
    <textbox00003> text 2</textbox00003>

    And…

  14. not displaying all fonts

    I install fonts from various sources and with various methods and INDD never shows all the fonts in the family. I just installed all 18 fonts from Montserrat through the Typekit site and INDD display 14 installed fonts. Same thing using Extensis Suitcase. I can activate 10 fonts and only 6 will display. Where are the rest of my weights?????

  15. Comp to InDesign

    InDesign V 15.0.1
    Comp V 3.0.5.16
    Brand new iPad Pro, up to date

    Tried to send layouts from Comp on iPad to InDesign on iMac and noting happens. Comp confirms sent, nothing appears anywhere in InDesign. Both apps signed into same ACC account.

    When I get into my Creative Cloud, Under the "Your Work" tab, I then click on the Globe and go to Cloud Documents and then Mobile Creations, and they seem to be there, but if there is a way to get it from there into indesign I am unaware.

    All the tutorials seem to display the layout…

  17. InDesign hyperlink testing swamps my website and triggers my site's denial-of-service-attack banning on my IP

    InDesign does checking of hyperlinks to see if they are valid and indicates the result in the hyperlinks list with a green dot (good) or a red dot (bad).

    The problem is my document has 500+ hyperlinks to my website and when Adobe tests these hyperlinks (when I open up the hyperlinks list dialog), it swamps my website with hundreds of hyperlink hits all at once and triggers the denial-of-service-attack IP banning code on my website.

    The end result is any time I'm editing hyperlinks in my Adobe InDesign document, I get banned from my website! When I check the…

  19. Dialogue windows doesn't stay where you last put it

    On older versions when you resized/moved dialogue windows they stayed where they were, now, when I'm relinking multiple items for example, I have to move the window out of the way so I can see my links pallete. Every. ****. Time. This just ruins my workflow and is a basic bit of functionality that's been broken for a while now. Please fix!

  20. index range not defaulting to "Current page."

    When I enter a page range for an index entry, that range 'sticks,' meaning it will be applied to all subsequent entries made by selecting a text and then clicking on the "New index entry" in the Index panel. Since the result isn't show to the user, the result is a long of wrong entries.

    Fix: The page range should not default to the previous entry. It should default to the most common entry, "Current page." If you want to allow what happens now, add a "Make this range the default" check box.
