    I couldn't believe this wasn't a feature of cell styles, yet it absolutely should be.

    Forgive me for asking, but isn't this the same feature as header rows that are currently in InDesign, and if not, can you please elaborate on the distinction between header rows and your suggestion?

    Until the InDesign engineers address this issue, I have a free script that will to this to INDD & PDF, and a paid script that will also export to images such as jpg, png, etc. It can be found at https://colecandoo.com/scripts/

    I've created a test file with links and images and test text to try and replicate the fault. Follow the steps in the InDesign file attached.

    Put simply, text – whether it is UTF-8 or UTF-16 can import unicode characters that are meant to represent emojis etc, and this is demonstrated in the test file. While not in the minion character set, I've created a GREP style that looks for unicode characters and changes them to apple color emoji. That bit works.
    What does NOT work is when importing the text as part of a data merge... instead the unicode characters are completely skipped.

    @robinochsner - yes it can. Re-read my link and you will see screenshots of this happening.

    This is already possible from InDesign, but it does require some setup. See my article at InDesignsecrets: https://indesignsecrets.com/applying-any-cmyk-color-during-a-data-merge.php

    If you want to hide the start menu for good, uncheck the 'show "start" Workspace when no documents are open' checkbox in the preferences/general.
    If having no luck with this, make a new blank text file in notepad or textedit and add the following line:
    app.generalPreferences.showWhatsNewOnStartup = false;
    save the file as "goawaystartupscreen.jsx" and save it to the following location:
    /Applications/Adobe InDesign CC 2019/Scripts/startup scripts/goawaystartupscreen.jsx
