    Thanks for reporting. We will look into the issue shortly.

    Hello Aprinder,

    Thanks for you offering, but with all due respect, this is a workaround, not a fix. We create complex documents 100s of pages long with multiple layers of interactivity. Manually changing the export options for literally thousands of individual text frame objects is definitely NOT a solution that will work for long document publication. Your solution, while technically valid as a temporary workaround, is definitely NOT "Issue fixed."

    It's now over a year since this was reported here, and well over two years (as far as I can determine from community posts) since the bug was first discovered. Why can't this be fixed?! Anyone that uses right-to-left reading text is completely powerless to produce fixed-layout epubs for clients. It's a major problem with a key publishing feature! Does Adobe just not care about this community?

    Avraham - Unfortunately, it affects all right-to-left reading language text.

    This bug is over a year old now. This bug REPORT is 8 months old as of this writing.

    kmaz, it's mind-boggling that the Adobe tech you talked to doesn't know about this bug. Did you provide the link to this page?

    Does Adobe just not actually care about users that need this to work? Those of us that need to use right-to-left languages for ourselves or our customers deserve better than this. I contact Adobe periodically through Twitter, but they give me the same run-around every time and just refer me back to this page to "watch for developments."

    It's great that you are reviewing this, but I was told by Adobe support over a month ago (by phone and via Twitter @AdobeCare) that this was already being actively worked on and would be fixed in the next InDesign ME update. This is a major issue for a lot of people, and an embarrassment for Adobe that a main export feature is so completely broken. Please, please expedite this!

    I managed to get through to Adobe regarding this issue. It's a known issue that they are actively working on. I was told today that the issue will be fixed in the next InDesign update release. Time will tell when that might be.

    I am having this problem now on InDesign 2021 as well. Need to fix it or I don't get paid! No action on this I'm assuming...

    Same problem--has been going on for a long time but I never checked into it because I don't place video very often. Now I need to and this is driving me crazy. Sometimes it's HUGE and other times it appears normal but when I click into it, it disappears completely, never to return until I reset my workspace. Glad I checked here before reinstalling and doing major surgery on InDesign. This is on Windows 10 Pro desktop.
