  4. Can not start InDesign CC 2018

    I can not start the InDesign CC 2018 after the update from CC 2017. The program did not start. Nothing happened. Need I some special rights, now? What could be the reason?

    Hello All,

    We have fixed a number of crashes with InDesign’s latest Nov’17 update.
    Please download the latest InDesign version (InDesign CC 13.0.1) for the fix.

    List of crashes and other issues that have been fixed with the update can be found at the below provided link:
    https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/release-note/indesign-cc-13-0-1.html

    If you are unable to see the update yet, go to Creative Cloud application, click on the context menu on the top right and click on Check for App Updates.

  5. Cursor spins and text display lags while typing

    ISSUE: While typing, text display will freeze/lag, and the cursor will change to a loading icon for about 2 seconds, then the text will finally appear all at once after the loading icon changes back to a regular cursor. This happens while typing in a regular text box.

    EXPECTED RESULT: I expect text to appear on screen immediately as I press the key on the keyboard, not after a 2 second lag.

    Version: InDesign CC 13.0 x64

  7. Cannot open InDesign - error 0xc000012f

    For the last week or so, I have not been able to open InDesign. It seems it is the only Adobe programme causing me problems.
    I've tried uninstalling and installing InDesign - nothing happens. I've sent a few bug reports, but haven't received any answer to how I get the programme to work.

  10. Background animation little behavior

    Since the CC2017 the "activity in background" animation is wrong. Not an important bug, but every time I export a pdf I see this wrong animation :)

  12. OpenType All Small Caps disappear when switching dictionary to German

    I have a text that uses the OpenType feature “All Small Caps” in a lot of places. It is currently set to use the English USA dictionary. I am working on translating this text into German, and so I want to use the German dictionary for it. When I try this, all instances of All Small Caps turn to regular lower-case letters. I tried a couple of different dictionaries, some (e.g. other English and Dutch) will retain the SC and others (e.g. None) will make them disappear.

  13. Export Tagging: ‘i’ character in class name exports as blank space

    I just did the 2018 update, so I think it's the most recent version: 13.0 x64

    I have a document template that contains many character and paragraph styles with export CSS tags that contain the lowercase ‘i’ in them. This character is being exported as a blank space, which completely breaks the CSS, like this:
    should be: <p class="bright"></p>
    getting: <p class="br ght"></p>

    This problem was easily replicated in a fresh new document, so it’s something with InDesign, rather than my template file.

    This workflow involves complex style mapping through to CSS classes. Because so many of the classes contain…

    Thanks for sharing the CSS and document. Apparently, I was not able to reproduce the issue, Can you please try to creating new document with few paragraph styles and try exporting the document to HTML and see if the issue is resolved.

  14. Weird display bug in bookmark panel

    1. Latest Indesign on Windows 10 (1709)
    2. Open document, open bookmark panel
    3. Show all bookmarks correctly
    4. Bookmarks are randomly cut in the middle of letters
    5. Screenshot attached.

    Info: the INDD file was made in ID CS6 and now opened in ID CC, then saved. TOC and bookmarks have been recreated after this, but the problem remains. The weird thing is, this suddenly happened today. I've been using CC since 11-30-17 and before today it was OK.

  18. Option + drag no longer duplicates object

    Holding the Option key while click & dragging on an object no longer duplicates the object – just drags the original/target object.

  20. Fix the "rule on" in continued footnotes

    Although "rule on" is checked in continued footnotes, sometime the line appears above the footnotes when there is no need and sometimes it doesn't appear at all.
    Please fix it.
    Thanks!
