  1. Anchored objects in text on path have inconsistent vertical & horizontal positioning

    Pasting the same graphic in text on a path appears at different vertical and horizontal locations relative to the baseline depending on where on the path it's pasted. CC 14.0.1, no character or paragraph styles applied.

  2. InDesign CC 2018—Page shifts when browsing with key commands

    Browsing pages using Command+Page Up/Down or Fn+Shift+Arrow Up/Down shifts page slightly left and down. Infuriating when trying to see if elements are properly aligned between pages. The rulers seem to shift as well.

    I'm using Indesign CC 2018 version 13.1

    My document size is 4k 3840 x 2160 px. When my doc is 1920 x 1080 px the page shifting does NOT happen.

    Any ideas why this is happening and how to fix it?

  6. Size and Position Missing from Object Styles

    "Size and Position Options" are missing from Object Styles. The option is simply not listed in the Object Styles options and I cannot find a reason for it anywhere. Everywhere I've searched says it should be there so that I can set a specific placement for an object with that style applied, but it's missing.

    I'm using the software at work. It's Adobe InDesign CC - 2017.1 release. 12.1.0.56 x64 build.

  13. Add a tick box to settings panel of paragraph rules, to make rule under every line of a paragraph possible

    I design a lot of school books. I frequently need to use dotted rules under all lines in a paragraph, where children can write down their own answers. These answers are already filled in with the correct answers for the teachers in a spot color. The students gets books without this spot color printed. This to clarify why I would need this. Until now the only solution I could find was to end each line with a paragraph end. But this is not very user friendly, especially when this answer-text needs a revision

  16. Moving Objects with arrow keys is buggy

    If I try to move and object with the arrow keys, ist does not take effect for several times and then the content of the object suddenly jumps. Same with line height adjustments: nothing happens / value ist not applied. Then ist suddenly jumps in the Layout.
    Impossible to work with the program.

  18. cc 2019 Book (.indb) Export to uncompressed PDF creating low-res PDFs

    Twice this week, I've had a problem using Books (.indb) with cc 2019. When exporting with no compression, 300 dpi images are compressing down to 33 dpi.

    The only solution I've found is going back to cc 2018.

  19. new document dialogue wont accept size

    INdesign 14.0.1
    File > New Document
    In the new document dialogue box:

    I want to create a custom document 190mm wide and 25 mm high.
    I enter the 190mm in Width box
    I enter 25mm in Height Box
    I move out of the Height box and figure I have entered changes to 211.667 mm.

    this happens no matter if I use the print or web dialogue window.

    This makes it impossible for me to start a new document in the size I want

    ... so that's not a total pain in the **** is it?

  20. Indesign CC 2018 (oct): display of frame borders offset by 1 pixel

    Indesign CC 14.0.1 x64, german

    put a pageitems' left border exactly on X=0, aligning the item to the left side of a right page on facing pages... see screenshot...

    Frame border is displayed offset by 1 pixel.

    This does not apply to right aligned items on left pages. Here the frame border is displayed fine.

    It's minor ... but ugly.
