  1. Output intent broken in 2020

    Seems that Indesign 2020 shouldn't have been released since one of the most important things is broken.

    We tell our customers to use PDF/X4 to export pdf's so that we get a correct output intent profile in the pdf.
    The problem is that it doesn't seem to matter what color settings I have, the output intent is always set to US Web Coated in the Output tab of the export window. So now everyone has to change the output profile manually in the output tab to the color profile setup in color settings. This is really bad and alot of…

    It looks like the Synchronize Color Settings in Bridge was not syncing the color settings in InDesign. Changing the settings once again in Bridge sorted out the issue of synchronization.
    Based on this information, closing the thread.
    Thank you Anders for prompt back & forth communication and help in troubleshooting the glitch.

  3. InDesign won't find fonts in file package if the file is in a Dropbox folder

    Version: InDesign 14.0.3 macOS Catalina
    Steps: 1. Package a file and include fonts
    2. Move the package anywhere in the local Dropbox folder
    3. Make sure fonts are not locally activated/present
    4. Open file
    Expected result: InDesign opens fonts in the "Document fonts" folder
    Actual result: InDesign reports fonts as missing
    [Same package moved to Desktop, everything works fine]

  4. shared destination hyperlinks do not get inserted into exported epub 3 (InDesign CC 2020 v15.0)

    I have a document with many shared destination hyperlinks. When I go to export this document out to an epub 3 file, non of the shared destination hyperlinks are inserted into the epub file. This is a huge problem.

  5. epub 3 footnote hyperlink character style html is broken (InDesign CC 2020 v15.0)

    epub 3 footnote hyperlink character style html is broken. When exporting to an epub 3 with footnotes that contain hyperlinks, the html output is acting strange. See the below for an example as it applies a separate span character style to each word or string.

    <a href="https://naturalhealthcourses.com/2015/06/cellular-memory-and-how-it-works/"><span class="Hyperlink">https:</span><span class="Hyperlink">/</span><span class="Hyperlink">/naturalhealthcourses</span><span class="Hyperlink">.</span><span class="Hyperlink">com</span><span class="Hyperlink">/</span><span class="Hyperlink">2015</span><span class="Hyperlink">/</span><span class="Hyperlink">06</span><span class="Hyperlink">/</span><span class="Hyperlink">cellular</span><span class="Hyperlink">-</span><span class="Hyperlink">memory</span><span class="Hyperlink">-</span><span class="Hyperlink">and</span><span class="Hyperlink">-</span><span class="Hyperlink">how</span><span class="Hyperlink">-</span><span class="Hyperlink">it</span><span class="Hyperlink">-works/</span></a>

  7. Mysterious blocks of whitespace appearing in tables

    Yesterday I reported mysterious blocks of white space appearing between paragraphs and images. They are now starting to appear between my tables. Please see the attached figure. There is no indication of them in the story. Has this got something to do with the footnotes which are behaving very strangely. Maybe I have misconfigured them somehow?

    Kind regards
    Mike Howell

  8. Highlighting text in a table does not highlight the corresponding text in the story editor

    CC2020

    When I highlight text in a table, I would expect the same text to appear highlighted in the story editor. Instead, the story editor jumps to the beginning of the document.

    Kind regards

  10. Window positions on Mac triple screen don't hold

    On V. 15.0 I use a 27" 4K monitor arranged above two smaller HD monitors when using InDesign and Premiere Pro, for generous screen real estate. PrePro remembers to place the Program monitor on the big screen when a project is loaded. InDesign, even when the workspace is saved explicitly as "Triple," with Panel Locations and menu Customizations options checked, does not respond and loads only into the two lower HD monitors.

  11. Strange Whitespace areas

    I am using CC2019 and the have the same issue in CC2020. I have mysterious areas of whitespace that I can't use appearing on my pages. Please see the attached file. The file is part of a book. Page 110 (relative to book's start, the third spread in the file) is where the trouble starts.

    I don't mean to be a nuisance but sorting this out is rather urgent. I am going to destroy the document and start again out of desperation.

    Kind regards

  13. assignments not showing or saving with file type .icma or including the whole path in the file name

    With the implementation of ID 2020 my team and I have run into a problem saving .icma files. (We are currently using PC's and I have not experimented with a mac yet.) I have found 2 things that happen based on what you do prior to changing the assignment location.
    We have opened our files (all ID 2019 versions), all of which already have stories and assignments attached to them. After making our changes, and before saving the file I go to "Change Assignment location" and the file name is extremely long as it includes the complete path, along with…

  14. Glyph substitution not working with certain Oriya and Bengali glyphs

    The following words in cannot be reproduced in InDesign. It seems the glyph substitution is not working in about 1% of cases.

    র‍্যানিবিজুমাব — Bengali
    ମହତ୍ଵପୂର୍ଣ୍ଣ — Oriya
    ସ୍ଵେଚ୍ଛାକୃତ — Oriya
    କିମ୍ଵା — Oriya

    It looks fine above, in any text editor, or in any Microsoft app, but does NOT look right in any Adobe app I tested, such as InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop CC 2019 and 2020 of each.
    I am applying the World-Ready Composers.
    I have tried copy+pasting the text from Word and also tried the Place command in InDesign.
    I've tested in both the English North America and…

  20. format de document

    Les fenêtres indiquant le format de document sont trop étroites et n'affichent pas les valeurs en entier.
    par exemple : 2500 mm, le 2 est tronqué
    ou comme sur la pièce jointe pour 370,2 mm et 262.2 mm, le chiffre des centaines n'apparaît pas à l'écran.
