  1. windows 10 - paste number from clipboard history into X/Y-object coordinates

    How to repeat the issue:


    1. Activate Clipboard history in windows settings (win 10)

    2. Copy a random number to your clipboard (my testnumber "-2,375")

    3. Create a new document and place a rectangle (or random object) on your page

    4. Select the object and click (focus) in the field for the y-coordinates

    5. hit "windows+V" to open your clipboard history (must be activated in the settings)

    6. Click on your previous copied number.

    6-Bug. The number has been pasted two times in the y-coordinates field.

    Test system:
    - Win 10 pro (1809)
    - current Indesign CC version (how to check the actual version?)

  2. Anchored Object Lock/Prevent Manual Position Override

    The Prevent Manual Positioning creates a Locked Object, but unlocking the widget doesn't remove the Prevent manual override.

    When you check to "Prevent Manual Override" an anchored object receives a lock adornment. An object Style can be created from this object. If that lock is unlocked the Object style shows as override, but the "Prevent Manual Override" is still checked.

    If the object style is redefined. The lock adornment is still unlocked, and the "Prevent Manual Positioning" is still checked. Reapplying the style locks the object.

    There should be more consistent behaviour of "Prevent Manual Positioning" and the "Lock". Even…

  5. InDesign crashes while working with Hyperlink

    For some reason there is 1 page number on my TOC that keeps making Indesign crash when I try applying a hyperlink to it. Everything else hyperlinked just fine. Also, I tried to delete the text so I could maybe retype the number but that also makes my application crash.

  7. Dictionary Hyphenation in Uppercase ignored (German)

    Custom hyphenation settings are ignored for uppercase words in user dictionary (at least in german).


    Example:
    dictionary entry: "kro~~~nach" (select field "case-sensitive" not set)


    Expected behaviour:

    Lorem ipsum Kro-
    nach dolor sit amet kro-
    nach


    Actual behaviour:

    Lorem ipsum Kron-
    ach dolor sit amet kro-
    nach


    Workaround:

    Enabling "Case-sensitive" and adding lowercase and uppercase version leads to correct hyphenation.

  8. BUG: Changes aren't tracked for bottom-right table cell

    The last cell in a table is a “dead” cell as far as Track Changes is concerned. If you copy cells from another row and paste them in the last table row, if the selection you are pasting into contains the last cell in the table, the pasted text will not be marked as a change. Likewise, inserting a new row in a table as the last row via drag and drop isn’t marked as an insertion at all. Inserting a new column in a table as the last column via drag and drop is tracked as an insertion for…

    Hi,
    Thanks for reporting the issue.
    We have been able to reproduce the issue.

    “The last cell in a table is a “dead” cell as far as Track Changes is concerned. If you copy cells from another row and paste them in the last table row, if the selection you are pasting into contains the last cell in the table, the pasted text will not be marked as a change. "
    This issue seems to be present since CS 6

  11. Duden-Hyphenation changes the language in preferences

    After setting Duden hyphenation in Preferences, the next time the menu is opened, it will change to "1996 Alte Rechtschreibung" instead of "2006 Neue Rechtschreibung". (only on WIN-machines?!?)

  12. Pages/spread overlapping after changing page size

    InDesign 2018 CC 13.0.1

    Pages and spreads are doing weird things when I resize my document. It creates some odd margin after resize of pages. I start out with 2 pages, document shuffling allowed, facing pages turned off.

    Pagespread01112617 - shows the page spread I was working with; each page is 10”x12.25”.
    Page
    spread02112617 - after I changed the size to 10.68”x11.239” for another ad spread, a weird margin showed up. The content boxes show how there is an odd overlap; each box is 10.68" wide.
    Pagespread03_112617 - If I move page 2…

  13. Unable to add Paragraph Styles to Creative Cloud Library, InDesign 2018

    Not sure how you can reproduce this as I haven't found anybody else with this problem, but hopefully you can figure out how to help me. I cannot add paragraph styles to the Library, and I have tried every way:"+" button on the panel with text selected, cloud button on the styles panel, dragging from the panel... nothing works. Everything else--including character styles--can be added normally.

    The issue is due to the Kerning being set as None, if one sets it as Optical or Metrics, it solves the issue. The issue is currently under review.

  15. Variable fonts broken with World Ready Paragraph Composer

    Using the World-ready composer essentially breaks the glyph width interpolation of Variable Fonts. The outcome is that text set in a Variable Font will receive the Variable Font's default style's horizontal glyph widths for any axis location, resulting in unusable overlap or gaps.

    Attached you find a sample Indesign file with comparison and a screenshot thereof. This happens with any Variable Font I have tested so var, but to complete the same test case as included, download https://github.com/adobe-fonts/source-sans-pro/releases/download/3.006R/source-sans-pro-3.006R.zip and install VAR/SourceSansVariable-Roman.otf as well as OTF/*.otf files.

    Link to Indesign file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/h8fpld7ks7k8rb4/bug-report-variable-font-world-ready-composer.indd?dl=0

  16. Adding text to "chained" anchored textframes causing complete crash when text is added to one of the first three frames

    Indesign 2020, Version 15.0.1, iMac with Mac OS 10.15.1:

    We have hundreds of documents created in Indesign 2019 with "chained" anchored textframes, sometimes 4, sometimes 5 frames in a row. Frames are set to automatical height adjust. When text is added to one of the first three frames causing the frame to become higher than before Indesign chrashes completely without warning. Adding text to frame 4 or 5 does NOT create a crash! Same files work perfectly under Indesign 2019. Problem occured with first version of Indesign 2020, and remains after recent update.

    Would love to attach an Indesign testfile,…

  17. svg mask

    InDesign does not keep masks that are embedded in the SVG. It ungroups them, causing hidden parts of the SVG to display.

  18. indesign crashes when deleting marker

    when i delete an index marker, indesign crashes. It's not with all markers, just one word that crashes the document. That word is in my table of contents and in my index so both crash.

  19. Paragraph shading not aligned in justified text when optical alignment is on

    If optical margin alignment (story) is ON the paragraph shading doesn't align on the right margin of justified text. hyphens seem to push the edge of the shading out. This is in build 13.1.1 but is also reported in 15.0.0.155. I cannot update to the newest version without buying a new computer—so I won't be anytime soon or maybe ever. So I hope that the bug would get fixed retroactively. My original post is here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign/paragraph-shading-text-width-not-justifying/m-p/10750103#M164426
