  2. InDesign Beta Critical for Many M1 users.

    I can't stress enough how important this is for many M1 users.

    I have a $1.5 million grant proposal due in 6 weeks and depend critically on InDesign to draft the proposal. Things were going along great until a day or two ago when the beta expired.

    Why not renew it until the public Beta is released? Or at least update the beta.

    The non-M1 (Rosetta) version is very buggy and adds at least 10% extra effort to my workflow. Please help!

  4. Indesign M1 Beta expired

    The beta suddenly stopped working and won't allow med to access InDesign on the M1 machine, no update on the Creative cloud installer beta section, and removing and reinstalling the app doesn't solve it.

    Will there come a new beta update soon?

  5. swatch palette folder minimizing

    Each time I deselect then reselect the Swatch Palette all of the Groups folders are minimized, even if I recently expanded the folder. Please retain folder view status when the Swatch palette is minimized.

  6. No new Dialogue Boxes

    Indesign refused to open any panels that were not already docked to the side e.g. Effects, Pages. Fixed with a restart of Indesign.

  9. Spell check does not work

    When I open the dialog, it already says "Spell Check Complete" at the top. I changed what to search, to get it to say "Ready to Check Spelling" then clicked "Start", but nothing happens—just goes back to saying "Spell Check Complete".

    InDesign Beta (16.3) running on M1 MacBook Pro.

  11. Scrolling redraw errors

    Scrolling quickly thru a document created for dummying a magazine, and the screen did not redraw parts of the document correctly. Happened twice before reporting. Tried uploading a screenshot, but would not post with it.

  13. Command "O" does not always work

    Opening documents with Command "O" does not always work. Many times I have to go back to the Home Screen to open a document. This is both in the current release and the Beta.

  14. Ralentissements constants - latence

    Application version = InDesign 16.1
    Ordinateur = Macbook Pro avec puce M1

    Steps to reproduce the issues
    Le bug est que à tout moment, pendant que je suis entrain d'écrire, en train d'intégrer une image.. sans crier gare, InDesign fige complètement et m'empêche de faire quoi que ce soit d'autre jusqu'à ce qu'il dégèle.
    Quelques fois, ça se produit peu, et à d'autres occasions, c'est sans arrêts, je veux dire aux 5 - 10 secondes. C'est insoutenable en contexte de production.

    Expected results
    Je m'attends évidemment à ce que je puisse faire mon travail sans interruptions constantes et aussi, en…

  15. Looking for InDesign 2020 to install on new MacBook Air

    Hi there, I just got a new MacBook Air and searching my CC for Versions of InDesign 2020. I need it to work together with the publisher app «Wood Wing Studio» which doesn't work on InDesign 2021. But my Creative Cloud only show's me Versions to intall from InDesign 16.0 upwards. I also had InDesign 2020 installed on my old MacBook Pro running on Big Sur and had no problems with it. Is there any solution for this? Thanks!

  16. Colour Theme Overlay tool - floating palette does not disappear once tool deselected

    The colour theme overlay tool does not disappear once a different tool from the tool palette has been chosen. In addition, the popup to select different perceptual palettes (Bright, Colourful etc) does not always appear or appears erratically.

  17. InDesign links and Box Drive

    This appears to be an issue only with InDesign and Box Drive.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1. In InDesign, link to an Illustrator file or PDF with multiple artboards, layers, or pages from the Box Drive folder.
    2. Place the file and select a single artboard or page.
    3. Save, close, and re-open the file.

    Result:
    The linked file will no longer update. Perpetually needs updating even though the file hasn't changed.
    The workaround is to save the linked file to Adobe Libraries.

    Expected:
    The file link should show that it is updated in the links panel.

  18. Edit -> Duplicate - keyboard shortcut broken

    It has been broken for years actually, you cannot use a keyboard shortcut to duplicate. It's in every version of InDesign for years.

    Easily reproducible - select an object and try to duplicate via keyboard shortcut (command - option - shift - D).

  20. Picture box, dragging/moving is erratic and tricky

    There is no ghosting or even greeking of the images during a move, scale, and the box often sticks and can't be dropped.
