    I have experienced something very similar, but not with the numeric keypad, rather with the letter "r". Typing the letter "r" causes InDesign to change to a different paragraph style. Then you cannot type the letter "r" while in that paragraph style, nothing happens. This is happening with more than one document and more than one user in our office. MacOS Mojave, InDesign 2020, 15.0.3 (updating to 15.1.1 did not solve the problem). We have never had shortcuts assigned to our paragraph styles.

    I solved the problem by deleting the paragraph style it was jumping to, then re-creating it. I was able to import this new paragraph style to two other documents having the same problem, then deleted the old corrupted paragraph style and replaced it with the new one (using the delete button from the paragraph style menu), and the behavior is gone in those documents also.

    This seems like a paragraph style bug.

    I run into this all the time in our work as well. Another vote to honor Photoshop's layer blending modes!

    We use the same technique of placing two copies of the image exactly on top of one another and using Object Layer Options as described above.

    I've tried using paragraph borders to accomplish the same look and functionality, and it's almost there but requires manually adjusting the offsets for different size objects, such as a two-line vs. three-line object. But it brings to mind that maybe more control options in paragraph borders would do it. For example, could the border be anchored to the size of the text frame rather than the paragraph?

    Here's a summary of this FR and the input below.

    When a file is finalizing for delivery to a vendor, one task is to make sure ONLY the colors that are actually wanted are used in the project. Production must hand off files with no possible extra plates. This includes colors in imported files from Illustrator or Photoshop. InDesign can almost clean up the colors used in a document using the following features:
    1. Add unnamed colors in the Swatches Panel
    2. Delete a swatch and replace it with another swatch (such as when multiple version of a blue are used that are all supposed to be the same blue, a common problem that production cleans up)
    3. Select All Unused swatches and delete
    4. Find/Change colors in text, fill and stroke with the Find/Change dialog box
    5. Use the Separations Preview to turn plates off and scroll through the document to see if objects appear that should be invisible if that plate is turned off (such as when registration get used for black).
    6. Use the Ink Manager to remap colors to their correct plate (not a perfect solution, or an acceptable solution in many production environments)

    But, when a swatch is from an imported graphic it cannot be deleted.

    This feature should work FROM THE SWATCHES PANEL. It should have a symbol for when a color is from an imported graphic file. You should be able to click on a swatch and choose Find Next, or Go To, and InDesign should jump to that object. It should be able to recognize colors from tables and imported graphics, as well as regular InDesign objects and text (including spaces).

    Keep in mind that many InDesign files pass through many hands. Don’t think of documents as staying with one user from start to finish. Creative and production have very different priorities, and all of the contributors to the creation of a project have different levels of skills and production expertise.

    The Links panel can show the colors used in an Illustrator file when they are spot colors. This is an optional column you can turn on, “Swatches Used.” However this does not show named process colors.

    InDesign also needs to be able to flag that colors are defined in styles but not actually used anywhere in the file.

    Summary:
    More info in the Swatches panel showing where colors are used: graphic, style, table
    Ability to highlight a swatch and find instances of where it’s used

    Great news! MUST include colors from imported images. It would be best if this worked from the Swatches panel.

    One of those features that seems unbelievable that it's not already there. Currently you have to scale in Acrobat via Preflight. (https://indesignsecrets.com/creating-a-different-size-print-pdf-a-workaround.php).

    There are so many reasons people need this in so many scenarios. Just a simple scale upon export vs. using Layout Adjustment, which you then have to check.
