For about the past two weeks, I've been experiencing a frustrating problem on two Mac installations of InDesign 13.1. When an object is selected and I click on a color swatch to change its color, about 30% of the time it will not take effect. If I have multiple objects selected and I click on one of those objects again, instead of assigning that object as the key object like it should, the entire group of objects moves slightly to the left. I am absolutely sure I am not moving the mouse when this happens. Also, regarding the color change not taking effect, I can tell the mouse click is registering with the computer because the swatch name highlights briefly when I click. Again, this happens on two computers, and only started happening within the past couple of weeks. I posted a couple of videos of the problem here: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2530186?start=0&tstart=0

Opened a PDF of a line chart in Illustrator, copied/pasted into InDesign CC 13.0.1, then noticed the dashes of stroked paths didn't follow the path accurately in some places. On setting the "Corners" control to "None" those path's dashes snapped precisely to the path, but selecting any of the three Corners settings made the dashes move off the path the same amount. See attached PDF for before/after images.1 vote
When trying to convert all URLs to links, it seems that the regex used also targets things like V.ii and converts that into a link. Shouldn't it be looking for anything with http or www?1 vote

After the update all the .emf files I had imported into my layout were gone (showed a grey box with cross). I also could not import any of the old emf files into any documents.
I re-installed the older version and everything worked well again. So must be a bug in the latest update.1 vote

Current documentation refers to this page: https://www.adobe.com/devnet/indesign/documentation.html
But all the documentation there is from Adobe InDesign CS6 -- five major versions ago. Also, the documentation on tagged text seems to be missing.
Can updates be made so new features and changes are documented?
Thank you,1 vote

I combined single pdf pages into a new binder. Labeled page numbers, and some with prefix. Saved it out as a optimized file and the numbers are now relabeling themselves. Tends to happen when I have created a prefix in the page labels. Never happened before Adobe CC 2018.1 vote
There is a problem when doings packages between Windows & Mac OS : since years when you do a package on an OS through another the fonts saved in the folder "Document Fonts" is not recognized by the OS...
So we can't open & modify the document when we received a package from Windows when we are on MAC OS or vice-versa.
So we need the client to supply the fonts one by one which is quite annoying.1 vote

If we close Indesign or Incopy without checking in, the program will ask us if we want to. When we choose to check in, Adobe will act like it Checks In and then closes, but the changes are never saved back to the original file. Check In only works if we choose Check In manually before closing.1 vote
The scenario mentioned is working as expected for us on both Mac & Win. Could you elaborate on the exact steps you are doing when you see this not working as expected?

Print dialog set to print 3 x 3 thumbnails. I selected Postscript File in the Printer menu, and it blocked the thumbnails options. I saved the .ps file, but it was not usable:
When the file was converted [whether with Acrobat Distiller or Preview], the layout was for a vertical page layout, with the right page of each spread cut off.
Question: How can I create a usable Postscript or PDF file for thumbnails?1 vote
Make the new document margins and the drop down menu for margins the same. Top, bottom, inside, outside are indifferent places if you are tabbing thru to fill. So frustrating...1 vote
