  1. Issue with Presentation Screen Mode with the Dock shown

    Exactly the same as with Photoshop in Full-Screen, described here - https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/photoshop-and-macoshighsierra.html - in Presentation Screen Mode, the InDesign Document does not expand to fill the entire display when the macOS Dock is shown. The problem does not occur if the Dock is set to “Automatically hide and show”

  4. help

    Indesign help takes me to webpage that does not exist.
    http://community.adobe.com/chcservices/services/redirect?u=http://help.adobe.com&p=InDesign_12.0&l=en_US&id=AH_HOME

    Browser shows:
    Safari can’t open the page “‎community.adobe.com/chcservices/services/redirect?u=http://help.adobe.com&p=InDesign_12.0&l=en_US&id=AH_HOME” because the server unexpectedly dropped the connection. This sometimes occurs when the server is busy. Wait for a few minutes, and then try again.

  5. Multiple carets flashing

    As you can see on the second page of this screen clipping, there are two mouse carets. I have a fast computer, including 8 GB Ram, and this should not be happening.

    Thanks in advance

  10. Indesign fails to create new PDF's from imported Xerox scans

    tested on pc version Adobe Indesign CS6 8.1

    All imported pdf color scans from Xerox WC78xx copiers fail to create a new PDF in Indesign when using 'High quality Print' setting in Indesign PDF preferences.
    The only workaround is choosing convert to CMYK (or press quality) in Adobe indesign pdf preferences.
    Xerox now knows about this (I contacted them as first) but they say it's not their fault, Indesigns handels their scans wrong.

    my Xerox contact is Bart.Knops@xerox.com

    Please help ASAP, as this affects all users of indesign with Xerox machines (a lot!)

  12. Custom GREP-queries are suddenly away

    I had a nice collection of custom GREP queries. But suddenly they are away. They were numbered from 1 to 18. I'm very down to do this all again … Is there a way to find this again? Where are the custom queries saved? I updated from macOS 10.12.4 to macOS 10.12.5. Maybe that's the reason? Or is the reason that I had numbered them?

  13. Rendering of Bitmaps with High Sierra not as smooth as they should be.

    Since upgrading to High Sierra, I am finding in High Quality Display, bitmaps are not rendering smoothly on screen or in print.

    Exporting to PDFs gets over this, but not great when composing, and needing to see images as they will be.

  14. Fond de page en gabarit qui se transforme en bloc image dans les pages du document lorsqu'on importe des images dans ces pages.

    Sous InDesign 2017.1 build 12.1.0.56.

    Je dois créer 8 panneaux différents comportant 1 logo blanc par panneau sur fond noir.

    Pour créer mon fond noir et l'appliquer aux 8 pages de mon document en même temps, j'utilise un bloc vide avec couleur de remplissage noir sur le gabarit A (par défaut à la création du document). Je m'attends donc, comme d'habitude, à ce que ce fond soit en quelque sorte verrouillé sur les 8 pages de mon document et que je ne puisse intervenir dessus qu'en me positionnant sur mon gabarit.

    Ensuite j'importe tous mes 8 logos en PDF que…

  16. [InCopy] Sequence of stories is jumbled in Galley or Story View but not in Layout View

    We use InCopy for book production. When we send out an Indesign/InCopy Package to our editors, sometime the sequence of the stories seems to be random. It's all fine in Layout View. This makes reading and edition in Story or Galley View very hard.
