  1. Request for a Save All facility

    It would be very useful to have a "save all" facility as do Microsoft's and other's products: Pressing Ctrl+Shift+S saves all open documents in sequence.
    It is very disconcerting to realise I have 7-8 documents open from a book at the same time and none of them has been saved, sometimes for days.

    I have once or twice been caught out by Windows crashing with a large set of documents open and then found their contents in various confusing states.

    It would be so much easier if I could watch the stars slowly disappear from my tabs/eyes by pressing a…

  3. Problem mit Schlagschatten unter 15.0 x64 (Windows)

    Wenn einem Objekt ein Schlagschatten zugewiesen wird, so verschiebt sich der Schatten, sobald man auf OK klickt. Das heißt, der Schlagschatten hat dem optischen Eindruck nach andere Werte, als die zugewiesenen.
    Beispiel: Ein einzelnes PSD mit mehreren freigestellten Objekten vor transparentem Hintergrund erhält folgende Werte:
    Deckkraft 100% / Abstand 3 mm / x-Versatz 0 / y-Versatz 3 mm / Winkel 90° / Größe 5 mm / Übergriff 50% / Rauschen 0
    Als Ergebnis zeigen einige Objekte einen 90" nach untern fallenden Schatten. Bei den restlichen Objekten ist der Schatten nach unten und links verschoben.
    Dieses Problem ist neu, es ist…

  6. Adjust Layout cuts off images

    When using adjust layout, no matter what setting are used and even when images all have "auto-fit" checked, the adjust layout function cuts off many images instead of resizing them with the frame.

  7. InDesign does not honor whitespace on CC library vector graphics

    Example: I have a vector logo placed on a specifically sized artboard within Illustrator that has designated safety space around. the artwork, however InDesign adjusts the frame to fit the content within that dartboard instead of the artboard itself.

  8. 2020 Pages Window Broken

    Ever since updating to Indesign 2020 the pages window just doesn't work. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling a number of times but no matter what I do it just shows it as completely blank. This makes it extremely difficult to access anything, let alone my master pages.

  9. Backwards apostrophe

    The "right-single-quote" mark (i.e. apostrophe) in InDesign is rendering backwards, ONLY with the font that I'm using (Acme Gothic). The apostrophe is correct with other fonts, and on other Adobe products (Illustrator and Photoshop). It's specifically when using this font, and in InDesign. It's even using the correct character (’) but it's appearing backwards. It also exports backwards in a PDF as well. I'm using Adobe InDesign 2020 on a Macbook Pro.

    The ’ for the font Acme Gothic has been set to Mirrored in your text frame, that’s why it is rendering backwards.

    To change all instances of this, highlight it with the mouse, right-click, the choose ‘Load Selected Glyph in Find’. The Find/Change dialog opens with the selected glyph already in the Find Glyph field – its Unicode ID is 201B. To change the Glyph to the non-mirrored one, just type 2019 in the Unicode ID field . Then click Change All. It will change all instances of the mirrored apostrophe with the non-mirrored apostrophe.

    Hope it helps.

  11. Dragging images

    I haven't been able to drag photos once I import them into InDesign or even Illustrator. It worked for a split second after restarting my computer, but once I stopped dragging it, I could no longer drag the photo or any other photo.

  13. Swatch window can't type in tint %

    Swatch window allows you to set a Tint percent, but it can only be controlled via slider, which jumps in strange increments. It will not allow you to type in an exact percentage for the tint. Why does this one critically important window not work as well as every other tool?

  14. Swatch window can't be expanded

    The fill and stoke windows cannot be expanded like all other tool windows, this is really annoying. I want to be able to look at 10-20 swatches at a time, not 5.

  17. Longtime UI spelling error "Centre"

    Why is it that for many years now the spelling of "Centre" (as in: Centre Justify) has not yet been fixed in the Windows versions of InDesign? The MacOS versions are correct.

    "Centre" is "re" when used in "Shopping Centre".
    Center is "er" when used in the middle of something, such as Alignment.

    All of your other products properly use "Center" ... but, for whatever reason, InDesign (including the latest CC 2020) for Windows has failed to fix this.

    Please keep in mind that it's fixed on the MacOS versions. Thus, it MUST be considered an inconsistency and a bug.

  19. Indesign 2020 Crashing when deleting color swatches

    Indesign 2020 has been repeatedly crashing when a color swatch (or multiple swatches) in a document are deleted and replaced with an existing swatch. Indesign crashes the moment "ok" is pressed on the "Delete Swatches" popup.

    This has been happening since I updated to InDesign 2020, approximately 10 times in the past week, most, but not every, time that I delete swatches. This has happened in multiple documents, regardless of whether it is a single swatch or group of swatches being deleted.

    To identify the cause of this issue, we had started our investigation with the aim to resolve it. You might have also received an email from us seeking more details to help in our investigation.

    We’ve concluded our investigation and came up with the finding: Either the issue is fixed in the latest release of InDesign or the issue was intermittent in nature at the time of its reporting and is not reproducible now.

    We recommend you to upgrade to the latest version of InDesign 2021(v16.0.0.77) as it is more robust and contains a lot of bug fixes.

  20. Problem with Object and Table menu

    I'm running the latest version of InDesignCC 2020 v.15.0. Every time I go to the Object or Table menu, InDesign crashes. This happens every time, I had that problem in the previous versions of InDesign, but it is getting really bad now.
