  3. Glyphs "alternates for selection"

    Glyphs panel: When I choose Show: Alternates for Selection, no alternates display even though there are several alternates for the selection the fonts I am using. I have tried with many fonts over the years and it still doesn't work.

  7. Paragraph Panel – Unwanted Text replacement

    Please fix this bug!!!

    When I go to manually change the "Space before" or "Space After", it replaces all my selected text rather than the value I have selected to change within the panel.

    This is IMPOSSIBLE to work with.

  8. Conditional Tables: make them use the Condition Indicator

    Currently, when a condition is applied to a table, there is no visible indicator in layout mode. The attached graphic shows how in Story Editor, the table is highlighted with the conditional text indicator, but in Normal mode, it is not.

    But it should be.

  9. InDesign 2017 Froze and Will Not Shutdown or Quit

    I am using InDesign 2017 on a Dell Windows computer. I was synching/saving a document and it froze. I shut down the computer but when I reopened the computer the document was still there but I could not do anything with it. I cannot quit. I cannot use my mouse with it. It is frozen as if permanently in a state of incomplete saving at 75%. What can I do to rectify this?

  11. Blocked into portrait mode

    My computer's touchscreen and, accidentally touching The screen, I pressed something that made all my pages go into portrait mode and I can't find a way to get them back into landscape mode. Please help! I need to finish my portfolio for tomorrow and this bug is really disturbing my work! I've already tried changing the orientation by going into file>documents setup, but the settings say my pages are already in landscape mode, even though they clearly aren't!

  15. Hidden content in pdf export

    Adobe InDesign CC 2017. While exporting the file into a PDF. In the PDF while searching for a word I found some sort of ghost fields (picture ghostfields.png). Then I found out that the problem is caused by graphics that we use internally. There are mostly more than just one graphic in one Illustrator file (picture illustratorfile.png). It is saved as an ai, not eps. InDesign exports the parts of those graphics that are actually not visible in InDesign (picture error2.png). I could not find out why, or how to solve it. And because of those ghost field you can…

  16. Your decision to demand reactivation of a working program AND THEN NOT ALLOW THE REACTIVATION TO TAKE PLACE is reprehensible.

    Your technical rep called the CS3 suite an "end of life" product but it wasn't; it was enjoying a productive middle age until you put a bullet through its head. "End of life" should mean when new operating systems won't support it, not when you arbitrarily decide to kill it. I purchased that program outright and at significant cost, and you just stole it from me. I've always admired Adobe products but everyone involved with your business models should be ashamed of themselves. I plan to make my case against you LOUDLY on social media and in any other way…

  20. On the Radar? New character for uppercase "ß" in germany – dont forget to be able to disable auto-"ß" into SS…

    If I use shift+"ß", InDesign changes to "SS" – so far so good. But that got revised 29.7.2017. I hope thats on InD's radar.

    "Anfang 2008 wurde das große ß als neues Zeichen in den internationalen Standard Unicode für Computerzeichensätze aufgenommen, am 24. Juni 2008 trat die entsprechende Ergänzung der Norm ISO/IEC 10646 in Kraft.[1] Seit dem 29. Juni 2017 ist das ẞ Bestandteil der amtlichen deutschen Rechtschreibung.[2][3]"
