  1. Multiple line hyperlinks tab out of order when exported to PDF.

    Hi there. For whatever reason, when I have hyperlinks that wrap to a new line in InDesign, Acrobat tabs through them in the reverse order when exported as a PDF. Here is an example:

    [Let's say this sentence is a hyperlink that
    has wrapped to a new line.]

    When exported to a PDF, the tab order starts at [has wrapped to a new line.] then tabs to [Let's say this sentence is a hyperlink that]. And it continues that method throughout the piece. This is with tabbing set to document structure. If I set the tabbing method to "row", it…

  2. Reveal in finder not working

    Reveal in finder not working when right clicking tab at the top of open document. Clicking "reveal in finder" brings all open finder windows to front, but does not reveal the correct file location, nor any files if no existing windows are open.

  4. object export options does not open

    Click on Object export options (I assigned ALT+E) does not respond either from shortcut key or from menu, therefore unable to assign alternative text, any structure instructions for export to accessible pdf. Using latest version and only a problem since new licence deal signed with NSW DPI.

  6. "Tool" Keyboard Shortcuts (W, A, V, Spacebar Hand Toggle, "Shift+W") Not Working

    ONLY the "Tool" keyboard shortcuts such as "W", "A", "V", the "Spacebar" Hand Toggle, and "Shift+W" are not working. All other keyboard shortcuts involving "CTRL" or "ALT" work just fine. It is the same on my Photoshop as well. I am using the "default" keyboard shortcuts in the preferences. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing Indesign, and restarting the machine multiple times, opening InDesign with no other programs open, and other numerous solves on other treads.

    My keyboard is not the issue, I am using a remote desktop for work and all of these shortcuts work fine on my local…

  7. scroll arrows missing

    Here is a new bug in InDesign 2022
    This bug didn't exist in InDesign 2019
    Here isi it :
    In OBJECT menu > Object's layers options :
    The small window doesn't have scroll arrows anymore. They are very usefull to scroll the list screen per screen.
    Now, ther is only a vertical scroll cursor and it isn't precise at all : impossible to use with a list of 40, 50 layers.

    The window should be resizable too please.
    Thank you for reading

  8. Accessibility square bullet issue

    Document is set up following Accessibility guidelines, but instead of round bullets, we used square ones, colored red. All set up correctly using paragraph/character styles. When we use the read out loud voice in Acrobat, it reads "Black Square". A quick search found others with the same issue, with no work around. I should be able to define the square as a bullet, so that Acrobat would know, but even though the bullet is set up in character styles, the reader doesn't see it that way... and it gets the color wrong... though I'd rather it read simply "Bullet."
