    You have to share a list and a document so that this can be tested.
    What's your version of the operating system?
    Can you see the same with InDesign versions before CC 2019?
    Also with InDesign 2020?

    Ok. There is no file attached to my message.

    NOW hopefully attached:
    Override-elements-by-script-problems.zip.txt

    NOTE: I had to rename the zip file with suffix txt to get this loaded to my comment.

    Hi Tobias,
    unfortunately the thread Marc Autret is linking to in his blog post does not work anymore.
    The related discussion did not make it to the new forum. What a pain!

    Fortunately I saved the thread before the new forum was started.
    I hope it gets through. Attached:
    Override-elements-by-script-problems.zip

    Hi Peter,
    with my German InDesign CC 2019 app.panels[24] seems to be non-exist.
    app.panels[25].name returns "Separationsvorschau", that stands for "Separation Preview".

    var p = app.panels[25].getElements()[0];
    p // returns [object Panel]

    Wheras with the panel index 24:

    var p = app.panels[24].getElements()[0];
    p // returns Object is invalid

    app.panels[24].isValid //returns true

    I see the same with my German InDesign 2020 version 15.0.0.155 on Windows 10.

    Hi,
    I see no technical reason why object styles are not working with placed media assets.
    A workaround:
    1. Prepare a frame with an object style before placing a movie or a sound.
    2. Place the movie or the sound to the prepared frame.

    From now you cannot tell what object style is applied to the frame holding the movie or the sound.
    All options in the Object Styles Panel are grayed-out if the frame is selected.

    However, if you change the applied styles appearance the frame with the movie or sound will follow along. A very strange user experience.

    Also see this discussion at Adobe InDesign Forum:

    Object style on videos, why not?

    Should I do two different bug reports with Alternate Text for Hyperlinks and the IDML and IDMS issues?
    FWIW: If Alternate Text is not maintained with IDMS it is also NOT WORKING with InDesign library assets and CC Library assets.

    Ah. Same issue with IDML. Had a document with one hyperlink that contains alternate text.
    Exported that as IDML file. Opened the IDML file with InDesign 2020 version 15.0.0.155. Hyperlink is there, alternate text contents is missing!

    Hi together,
    another issue with Alternate Text for hyperlinks.
    The string for alternate text will not be exported with an IDMS file that contains the hyperlink.
    Just tested that because I wanted to see how this property can be managed by scripting.

    It seems there is no new property for Alternate Text for object Hyperlink in the scripting DOM.

    Hi Mark,
    I can see that as well and this was leading to a big headache even when working with the plugin WordsFlow from EM Software. Always styles with overrides. Always things one has to hunt down.

    What should work to get the text clean again:
    Work with GREP Find/Replace where you do a find after an applied style only and replace it with the same style. That should iron out all style overrides. Tedious as well if one uses a lot of styles, but I see no other quick solution.

    FWIW: This bug seems to be fixed with InDesign 2020 version 15.0.0.155 that was released this week.
    Of course still an issue if you are working with CC 2019, CC 2018.1 or CC 2017 etc.pp

    My tests were made with my German InDesign 2020 version 15.0.0.155 on Windows 10.

    German InDesign CC 2020 version 15.0.0.155:
    The drop down for "Farbe" should be much more wider so that we can read the name of the default swatch easily.

    Thanks.
