  1. Nach Installation von Indesign ist die Tastaturbelegung vertauscht (Querty statt Quertz)

    Nach der Installation von Indesign CC ist die englische Tastatur installiert obwohl eine deutsche Installation eingestellt war. Die Funktionalitäten sind alle auf Deutsch. Leider finde ich nirgends die Einstellung, wo ich es umstellen kann. Kann mir da Jemand helfen?

                  • Custom GREP-queries are suddenly away

                    I had a nice collection of custom GREP queries. But suddenly they are away. They were numbered from 1 to 18. I'm very down to do this all again … Is there a way to find this again? Where are the custom queries saved? I updated from macOS 10.12.4 to macOS 10.12.5. Maybe that's the reason? Or is the reason that I had numbered them?

                    • Anchored frame looses the XML tag information as soon as anchor is released/anchor point is moved forward.

                      Steps to reproduce

                      1. Create an anchored text/graphic frame with some inline text/image. Tag the frame with some XML Tag (say 'tag1').

                      2. Now release the anchor.

                      Expected output
                      - On releasing the anchor, there should be no changes in the XML tag on frame.

                      Actual output
                      - On releasing the anchor, the frame gets untagged.

                      Additional note: Similar thing happens when anchor is moved forward to another position in inline text. In this case also, frames gets untagged

                      • Units keep changing

                        In the preferences I change the units to inches and it saves. But when I open and close the program again, InDesign, Photoshop, etc., the units reverse back to picas

                        • InDesign 2017 Froze and Will Not Shutdown or Quit

                          I am using InDesign 2017 on a Dell Windows computer. I was synching/saving a document and it froze. I shut down the computer but when I reopened the computer the document was still there but I could not do anything with it. I cannot quit. I cannot use my mouse with it. It is frozen as if permanently in a state of incomplete saving at 75%. What can I do to rectify this?

                            • As part of my partners Master Collection cs5.5 she cant open InDesign as its says:

                              My partner cant load up her InDesignCS5.5 as part of her Master Collection.

                              We've tried to reload software but don't want to keep doing it and wasting licensed uses.

                              The error it generates it captured below in attachment:

                              Its says entry point not be located in the dynamic link library... WORLDREADY.RPLN

                              Is she missing a plug-in?

                              Thanks for any assistance.

                              • Your decision to demand reactivation of a working program AND THEN NOT ALLOW THE REACTIVATION TO TAKE PLACE is reprehensible.

                                Your technical rep called the CS3 suite an "end of life" product but it wasn't; it was enjoying a productive middle age until you put a bullet through its head. "End of life" should mean when new operating systems won't support it, not when you arbitrarily decide to kill it. I purchased that program outright and at significant cost, and you just stole it from me. I've always admired Adobe products but everyone involved with your business models should be ashamed of themselves. I plan to make my case against you LOUDLY on social media and in any other way…

                                      • Ctrl + Alt + X

                                        To use the shortcut "Ctrl + Alt + X" to do a hard space in the text is impossible - it doesn't work at all. When I press "Ctrl + Alt + X" I start some sort of screenshot function. When I chose "Hard space" from the menu it works as it should do.
                                        So please help, I miss my "Ctrl + Alt + X" -function.

                                        • Copying hyperlinks not always working

                                          I've recently been working on a project where there are tables containing hyperlinks. When copying and pasting whole tables from one INDD file to another (on a Mac BTW) it is fine as long as the original document is open. If you copy the table, then close the document before pasting it into another INDD file, it is very slow, you get a spinning beachball and then it pastes it in. However, none of the hyperlinks work and when you select them in the hyperlinks panel, the link is empty.
