  1. Missing part of pdf in indesign

    When I place a pdf in InDesign parts of the pdf is missing. I checked the Show Import Options box and selected all the different settings next to Crop to: under the Options section. None of them worked. I also tried the two different settings under the Layers tab and those didn't work either.

  2. Latest InDesign closes all open projects when closing one.

    InDesign v 14.0.3
    Open multiple files, ie editing two projects
    Make changes to one and not the other
    Quit the one with NO changes
    InDesign quits all files including the one that has changes without saving it first

  3. Adobe Customer Service Bug

    Adobe Customer Service and Support is non-existent. As in, no resolutions, no callbacks, constant lies to customers, and zero fixes.

    It's crazy and super lame.

  4. Cursor - Zoom in and out/left and right on trackpad not working

    When using my trackpad on Windows 10, two fingers up and down works when editing a document. Two fingers left and right does nothing and pinching in and out doesnt zoom, it scrolls right to left. This is the same across all my adobe platforms. Everything else on my laptop scrolls accordingly on the trackpad.
    I only downloaded the adobe software last night and my laptop is brand new yesterday. All updates are up to date.

    Thank you for helping in advance.

  5. font cache

    Fonts in Document fonts folder are not removeable anymore.
    I’m a typedesigner and check fonts by generating them into a Document fonts folder. In the past the fonts were always at once updated in Indesign, when I overwrote the fontfile. This does not work anymore.
    What is worse. A font that I generated into the folder is still visible in the font menue of the document, and I can still select and use it, even if the file does not exist anymore on the computer. It only disappears if I cut the internet. So it seems the font is stored…

  7. Interactive Buttons "go to destination" stop at page 114

    Hi,
    i cannot select more than 114 pages as a destination of an interactive button in a document with a total of 120 pages. I can't see why that's not possible, so this must be a bug?

  10. delete button doesn't work

    Sometimes the delete button on keyboard just quits working for no reason. When I close ID and reopen it with the file again, the delete button is working OK again.

  11. Corrupt overlay palette window -- stretched and can't be closed

    The overlay palette window is ever-present when I open InDesign. Every time I close it from the 'window's dropdown (as it is to wide to find the X close window icon, it just keeps reopening? It is too wide to fit on the screen, and the text in the panel is pixelated. I have tried docking it to other windows to contain it, but it corrupts those too. Anyone else had this problem?

  13. Keyboard shortcut no longer works after CC2014 - always works before this version

    Assigning a keyboard shortcut to 'Baseline options' does not work from CC2015 onwards. (CS3 to CC2014 assigning a shortcut does work).

    If you go to 'Edit > Keyboard shortcuts > Product Area: Object Menu > Baseline Options' and add a keyboard shortcut for this, it does not work from CC2015 onwards no matter what key combination you use for the shortcut. However, CC2014 downwards it always works.

  15. Aperçu des séparations - COULEUR REPERAGE

    Bonjour
    Dans la palette Aperçu des Séparation, il faudrait une coche pour masquer ou afficher les objet utilisant la teinte repérage.
    En effet il est très difficile de vérifier si un document contient accidentellement une teinte non désirée, car la teinte repérage peux masquer certains détails, comme par exemple un petit objet jaune quadri dans un document imprimé contenant plusieurs tons directs dont le jaune P109.
    Cordialement

  16. Easier automatic page numbering

    Make it easier to create automatic page numbering in InDesign. I would not have remembered to select the text frame, then navigate to TYPE > INSERT SPECIAL CHARACTERS > MARKERS > CURRENT PAGE NUMBER if it weren't for Google. This feature should not be an obscure tool, and should not be buried in panels. I feel like this feature should at least be in the Master Page Panel's drop down options (from the hamburger).

  18. no opening screen

    When ID opens there is no splash screen. I have to click the task bar icon for a small box to appear top left of screen. Then I have to repeat and only then can I drag it open across the screen.

    Additionally the man splash scree has an endless loading animation of the rotating circle. Nothing loads into it. However once I have overcome the initial boot so far the version is usable, albeit with some functions not responding to keyboard shortcuts.

  19. InDesign to InCopy Layout Malfunction

    My company's graphics department develops scientific posters, and as a writer, I often have to make small adjustments to the text and am only given access to edit through InCopy (using version 14.0.2). This problem does not happen with every poster, but I often find that the whole frame of the poster is shifted when I open the assignments file in InCopy (please see example photos). I'm able to make my edits, but I can't export to a PDF without having the bleed, header, etc. shifted as I see it in InCopy. Our graphics department thinks this is a bug…

  20. Data merge should work better with % - empty fields

    when working with factsheets it occurs that there are fields of text that need to be merged. Whenever there is a special character the function doesn't work. This is very very very annoying. It is quite common to use % in text, or brackets (like this)

    Also it should be possible to have a blank cell in the excel merge file. E.g. for 45 lines there is info, but for 1 there isn't. This should be able to be left blank and not obliged to fill in a 0 that you manually need to delete later on.

    Merging happens for…
