  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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).

  5. 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.

  8. QuickLook preview?

    Almost every file on my computer is a Space Bar press away from a quick glance to review it's content. Many even allow for scrolling through the pages of a pdf or presentation, but InDesign still only displays and icon. Even with "Always save Preview Images with Document" selected.
    I've seen this issues being discussed back to 2007 and it still hasn't been addressed beyond "use a 3rd party"... that's a terrible answer to missing features.

  11. Speed up cross references

    Opening the cross reference panel can be painfully slow. This has been an issue since at least InDesign CC, but maybe now is another chance to fix this.

    Behaviour is triggered by size of document and/or number of cross references. E.g. I'm working on a ~200+ pages document with about 150 cross references – both of which isn’t that extreme – and opening the panel takes around 4 minutes (yes, minutes). Interestingly enough, if the panel once opens and I change "Link to" from "paragraph style" to "text anchor", next time the panel opens instantly. Change it back to "paragraph…
