    The problem is still there. I imported text from Word a few days ago. Now that I was to search and find based on indentation, to replace the direct formatting from Word with Indesign paragraph styles... I can't do that using Find/Replace.
    I opened ExtendScript Toolkit and got a more exact value by putting the cursor in the text, and checking app.selection[0].rightIndent, which returned 1.00541666666667. I pasted that into the format search, but the UI rounded the value to 1.005, and did not succeed in finding anything.

    Starting up Indesign 2022 is extremely slow. It waits on "Starting up trackers". At least that's what it says in the startup splash screen.
    What are those trackers?

    Hello All,

    Thank you for your patience all this while.
    We had launched our investigation into the matter to get to the root cause of the problem. As the part of our investigation, we had reached out to many of you personally over email.
    We have concluded our investigation and have come up with few findings.

    1. For many of the users the issue got fixed after updating InDesign to a newer version.
    2. For some, the issue got resolved after disabling a third-party application such as Suitecase fusion etc.
    3. For few, the issue was intermittent and is no longer reproducible.
    4. For majority of the users, the underlying cause of the performance issue was identified to be related to span columns, cross-references, third party plugin etc.

    We have created separated threads for these issues and we are now working towards resolving them.

    However, over the time this thread…

    For me Adobe InDesign 17.4 x64 still idles at 2-3% after creating an empty document, minimizing, and leaving it for a while.
    No other process comes close to that when "idling", since its quite a good CPU, even if it is a few years old: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4710MQ CPU @ 2.50GHz.

    The percentage will of course be higher with a slower CPU.

    InDesign usually stops responding for 15-30 seconds now and then – for different actions such as creating a new document, and when closing the same document without saving. Things that was instantaneous in previous versions.

    I'd really like to see an automated setup for this too.
    Another way for Adobe programmers to consider could be to make the "Next style" function more advanced. If there was a way to refresh (reapply) all "next styles" the indent could be part of the Next styles of the header styles.
    Today the Next style is only set when pressing enter at the end of the paragraph.

    Along with the scripts suggested as temporary workarounds (waiting for Adobe) I recently noticed a way to deal with this using GREP search and replace: https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign/remove-indent-in-first-line-find-change-command/td-p/4047487

    Hi David,
    Roy Behymer suggested the same thing. When working with XML import and hundreds of tables there is a need to use headers. Also, as I wrote in the question, turning header rows into body rows will destroy the implicit information about the data being header data. Please read my answer to Roy on the same issue.

    It would be an improvment to InDesign tables if my suggestion was to be implemented. Is was actual need when I worked with this issue.

    Hi Roy,

    Think of Table styles and working with hundreds of tables in your documents... and then the sudden need to change those table into showing no repeated headers (and then back into repeated headers again).

    Using Table styles, header rows can not be styled differently from body rows, unless they ARE marked as headers.

    If you've only got one table in your document, the problem is not a big one. The thing is that you can not change this behaviour and apply (or keep) such a special formatting for header rows, that you mention, on many tables at once.

    Example: Last year I imported xml (with head AND cell data marked up separately), creating 100s of tables in a document with headers repeated for each column. I used a table style to set up separate formats for headers and body cells. When almost all the manual touch-up was done in the document our customer decides that the headers are not to be repeated. Since InDesign lacks the ability to change this in a simple way we had either to change all this manually (converting row by row) or via scripting, calling "Convert to Body" and explicitly setting individual Cell styles for the top-most cells.
    The number of header rows may also be more than one for each table: It's no a good idea to recognize a type of data (header contents) just by its formatting attributes. If you want to do something with all header rows, you can't just make a script that affects all "first rows" of all tables, you need to check some part of a style attribute.

    So yes, we want them to be header rows, not to lose their status as headers, in case we'd like to change their behaviour back into repeating headers or change their formats.

    I agree with Bastian S.
    You need to use Unicode UTF16, not UTF8. UTF8 does not seem to be supported.
    When it says Unicode and nothing more, it always means UTF-16, or so I believe.
    But in any case, Adobe needs to be more clear about this, in the dropdown options.

    I was just about to report this bug, when I saw it was already here. Thank you, Yve for adding it!
    I would say it's a bug, since you should not have to rely on a PLACEHOLDER textframe being large enough to show a part of the field name, for the actual data merge to work. But that is the case. Data merge developers at Adobe, please fix this.

    Paste without formatting is dimmed due to a setting under Clipboard preferences (Edit / Preferences / Clipboard handling).
    When Paste is set to "All information" the option to use "Paste without formatting" is again available (and also ctrl+shift+v).
    It's described here https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/using/adding-text-frames.html
    under the header "Paste text from another application".

    This ought to be made simpler in some way. It's very hard to know how to activate a grey option in a menu.

    I'm sorry to say, but your detailed explanation doesn't make it easier to understand the purpose of your request.

    You can put XML files of your own with new GREP query definitions in this directory: C:\Users\[your user name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\InDesign\Version 13.0\en_US\Find-Change Queries\GREP

    And if you want to, I'm sure you can direct the above folder to another path using a Symlink (ln -s) on Mac, or a junktion on Windows using the mklink /j command.

    Perhaps this information solves your question?

    @Jongware: InDesign has an option to save preview *images* with documents. That makes it possible to see those images in InDesign even when the actual links are missing. As I recall that works fine. If it's that setting, that you think of, it has nothing to do with previewing documents in the operating system or in Adobe's own software. Is there another setting?

    I can't see a great purpose previewing InDesign documents in the file system – isn't that what bridge is for?
