  1. convert

    Click "convert" to open this document..... doesn't do anything!!

    The error message then tells you "You are not currently signed in to the
    CC (which I already am). Please go to Help- > Sign In and enter your Adobe ID. Restart InDesign, then try opening the document again."

    Performing this action does nothing, the error never goes away, you just go in circles.

  2. GREP "Any Double Quotation Marks" wildcard not working as expected

    Version: CC (14.0.1.209)

    While using InDesign's Find/Change GREP feature:

    The following GREP query wont find the matching string even if it exists in the document: (Any White Space) followed by (Any Double Quotation Marks) followed by (Any Uppercase Letter)

    \s"[A-Z]

    This should find any white space followed by any double quotation mark followed by any uppercase letter, however it shows no match.

    The following GREP searches will work, but when combined they do not work:

    \s" will find the white space and the double quotation mark

    "[A-Z] will find the double quotation mark and any uppercase letter

    It seems to…

    It looks like you may be trying to open files that are shown on the Start screen but are unable to do so.

    Please check that the file(s) actually exist at the same location as when they were previously opened/created. If they have been deleted/moved/renamed, etc., the Start screen will continue to show their thumbnails but you won’t be able to open them.

    Let us know if this is not the case.

  4. 2018 Indesign/Incopy Check In Prompt On Close Does Not Actually Check in.

    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.

  7. missing scripts after installation ID CC13.0/ID2018 Windows

    Startup scripts are no longer running after installation. The Scripts folder is empty.
    Indesign copies the folder from version 12 and creates the folder C:\Users<user>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\InDesign\Version 13.0\de_DE
    But Indesign-scripts now are saved in C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe InDesign CC 2018\Scripts
    So you have to copy the script folders by yourself.

    Need more info  ·  Sumit Garg responded

    Hi,

    Thanks for reporting this issue. Just wanted to confirm few things:

    1) Was there some scripts present in folder C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\InDesign\Version 12.0\de_DE and these are not copied to 13.0 folder?
    2) Is your problem just limited to folder movement or you are facing the issue that your startup scripts are not running?

    Please provide more detail about the issue. Also, It would be useful if you can provide steps to reproduce the issue.
