  3. Can't Place images after upgrading to Mac Catalina

    Just upgraded my MacBook Pro to Catalina and suddenly I'm unable to place images. When I select Place from the File menu, click on the file I want, the Open command is grayed out. The only way I can get images onto the page is by dragging them from Bridge. I'm running ID 14.0.3, the latest version.

  4. InDesign does not load printer settings initially

    When opening the print window, InDesign will not use the settings set in the printer driver. But if you switch to a different printer in the drop down list and then back to the first printer again, the correct settings will be loaded.
    Using latest version 14.0.3.
    Printing works fine in other Adobe-softwares and MS Office.

  5. updating a placed multipage pdf

    Hello,
    When a multipage pdf is placed in InDesign, and an update of the pdf is needed, it is possible to do 'update link' in the links panel. But when 'show import options' is ON (in the 'place' window), all of the placed pages of the pdf will be replaced by page 1 of the updated pdf.
    For my opinion, if you want to update the instances of a placed pdf, the responsive pages have to be updated. At least the option must be accessible when updating the link.

  7. Wrong font case in TOC when using character style with upper case

    When generating table of contents it fetches the text and ignores paragraph styles, but character styles are left. This must be a misstake.

    I want TOC to be title case and chapter headings to be upper case that is set in a paragraph style. So far so good. But I am adjusting minor words (and, at, etc) with a character style. And for those words the upper case setting also shows in TOC.

  8. Exporting to PDF with print marks increases page size

    Using CC InDesign 2019 14.0.3 on a Mojave 10.14.6 MacBookPro

    For some unknown reason, for the last 3 months or so every time I export a pdf with any print marks, the page size is increased by 4.4mm on every side of the page ... eg I set up a document as A4 (297x210mm) with a 3mm bleed, set my content and then export it with print marks I get a 4.4mm increase on each side of every page - ie the resulting document size is 311.8 x 224.8mm instead of 303 x 216mm

    This causes major issues with submitting…

  9. Use of tab key is inserting unwanted numerals into line of copy instead of tab

    When working in InDesign v 14.0.3 x64 on my PC, I've encountered a new problem when trying to align text in a bulleted list using the "tab" key.

    After keying in the text in my list, I create alignment by first inserting tabs using the Type > Tabs command, and then using the "Tab" key on my keyboard to align second and third lines of text. Lately, when I move my cursor down to the second line of text and attempt to use the tab key to align the text with the tab I set in the line above, InDesign…

  10. font cache

    Fonts in Document fonts folder are not removeable anymore.
    I’m a typedesigner and check fonts by generating them into a Document fonts folder. In the past the fonts were always at once updated in Indesign, when I overwrote the fontfile. This does not work anymore.
    What is worse. A font that I generated into the folder is still visible in the font menue of the document, and I can still select and use it, even if the file does not exist anymore on the computer. It only disappears if I cut the internet. So it seems the font is stored…

  12. CPU over 100% - inDesign not usable

    Within in hour of using inDesign the CPU goes up to 1000% of CPU usage without any reasons. No matter if I'm working on a blanc space or big files, it react over time.

    Quick solution is to restart the application, within 1 hour of using the CPU goes up again.

    I reinstalled the application and work on a new account.

    Specs:

    iMac (Retina 5K, 27 Zoll, End 2015)
    4 GHz Intel Core i7
    32 GB 1867 MHz DDR3
    AMD Radeon R9 M395X 4096 MB

  13. indesign canvas can not be 6500mm in CC

    can not create a canvas with 6500mm, it reverts back to 5486.4 mm

    As an industry standard software, you would expect that there is no limitations to the canvas size.

  15. Interactive Buttons "go to destination" stop at page 114

    Hi,
    i cannot select more than 114 pages as a destination of an interactive button in a document with a total of 120 pages. I can't see why that's not possible, so this must be a bug?

  16. Imported styles contain unwanted formatting

    InDesign CC 2018
    When I load styles from an existing document (one that got designed for me, and therefore has lots of styles that I need to reuse) the style in the new document contains lots of random additional settings.
    The doc in question is MSM - Front and Back matter (attached). To recreate the issue, simply export any paragraph (or other) style into a different document and check out the extraneous formatting.
    Attached files: Snip of an original style and snip of a style loaded to new doc. Tried to add the InDesign doc in question, but file type…

  18. Link updates not registering in Indesign Mac

    Indesign 14.0.3 (latest offered)

    A text box is dynamically linked [place and link] from a master document to a child document. When the text is changed in the master document, the linked box in the child detects that it has been changed, and prompts user to update the placed box with a missing/updated link warning and an ! icon on the linked box. This is the expected behavior, and this works properly on Windows version of Indesign.

    This function is not working on the Mac version of Indesign. Changes to the master are not being detected by the linked copy…
