    Indesign 2018 is a disaster, full of bugs and crashes at any time.
    This was a good program, but now it's just a misery. Costs both time and money.
    I will work with older versions in the future and hope that any new player will find a better software.

    It would not be wrong with a phone number on the website, but you're probably ashamed.

  4. Crash when searching for column break

    Indesign 2018 crashes when searching for column break (~M) – with Find/Change dialog box or via script. It works for me with CC 2017. Not yet tested with CC2019.

    The document with 500 pages was newly created with CC2018. It was tested with several computers, always with the same result.

    Example document can be downloaded here: https://adobe.ly/2SGVPsy.

    Happens in CS6, CC 2019 as well.

    Find/Change for Column Break in GREP tab of Find/Change crashes InDesign.

  5. crash when deleting line

    InDesign crashes on selecting a specific line in TOC

    Hi! When trying to delete some lines in the TOC, some lines cause crashes. For one line it seems impossible to delete it. When selecting the line or the space the cursor freezes within seconds and a crash report appears.
    On reopening the file an error message appears, though the file can be opened.
    Attached are two screenshots and the file.

  9. amstelvarAlpha

    Activating font "AmstelvarAlpha" crashes inDesign CC 13.0. Having the font activated on startup also Crashes inDesign.

    Disabling the font fixes the problem.
