  1. Adjust Layout: add an option to ignore objects anchored in text or bring back legacy (2018) layout adjustment

    I always made extensive use of the old layout adjustment feature in 'margins and columns', yet the new 'adjust layout' gives inconsistent and confusing results, resizing objects that never used to get changed.

    It's gone from being very useful to a liability.

    For me it was great for resizing the main text frame on multi-page (100s+ pages) books, but leaving the objects pasted into the text frame alone (figures, etc). Also moving page numbers aligned with margins, but not changing the sizes.

    The new feature stretches and distorts carefully measured objects/figures, changes anchored object settings (at least, things move about…

  2. Shortcut for duplicate in InDesign doesn't work on MacBook Pro

    The keyboard shortcut for Duplicate (option+command+shift+D) in Indesign 14.0.1 doesn't work on my MacBook Pro (OSX 10.14.3).
    The work around is to either Alt+Drag or to select the item, select the Edit Menu and then hit the shortcut.

  4. RotatedTable-BaseLineGrid-NOT-WORKING.PNG

    ( InDesign 2020 version 15.0.0.155 on Windows 10 ).

    The custom baseline grid is not working at all if a table's text frame is rotated.

    It is working with text outside a table if the frame is rotated.
