  1. eyedropper not working correctly

    That's version 14.0.1.209

    When I create a NEW document — there is no problem, the eyedropper working correctly.
    BUT...
    When I work in a document that was previously in an earlier version (for example, CC 2018), then this problem is present.

    If I CREATE a new text box in a document that has been re-saved from an earlier version (IC 2018), then the eyedropper will not work correctly.

    If I CREATE a new text box in a NEW document (CCP 2019), and then transfer it to an old document, then the eyedropper in the new box will not work.

    • PDF comment import does not show regular sticky notes.

      The new PDF comment feature imports the comments just fine, but regular sticky note comments are not displaying. They show up in the list, but do not point to where they are on the document.

          JPEG files cannot be opened directly in InDesign. They can only be placed.
          Create a new document and from the File menu, select the Place option. Select a JPEG file and click Open.

          Hope this helps.

          Thanks,

        • Stroke Alignment Changes Shape Size

          InDesign 13.0.1

          Steps to Reproduce:
          1. Create a shape (Rectangle, Circle, Polygon)
          2. Add stroke to shape
          3. Change stroke alignment

          Expected Result:
          - Stroke changes alignment to what the user set (inside, outside, centered).

          Actual Result:
          - Shape size (and bounding box) change, while stroke remains aligned inside the bounding box.

            The stroke is always shown inside the bounding box for all three types of stroke alignments. But if you check the size of the object, it will be different for different stroke alignments.
            For example, if you have a square of 100 pt x 100 pt with a 20 pt stroke weight aligned to Center, its W & H = 120 pt. Similarly for the same square, if the stroke is aligned to Inside, its W & H = 100 pt while for stroke aligned to Outside, its W & H = 140 pt.

            This is how it has been designed.

          • English (UK) dictionary apparently not working

            Why, when I have set things to PROPER English rather than American English, is the spellchecker still working in Mericanese?

            The attached will show British spellings being highlighted as wrong, yet PROPER English selected in preferences.

            Thank you!

              You can select the text frame and change the language in the Control panel
              or you can select a specific portion of text, say a word, in a frame and change the language for that in the Control panel.

              If you want to change the application’s default language, in a no document state, edit the [Basic Paragraph] style in the Paragraph Styles panel (in Advanced Character Formats) category.
