We are so excited to have you join us on your creative journey with InDesign.
My name is Sujatha Reddy and I am your community manager responsible for managing this community along with Om Nath Jha. My team and our community of experts will continue to guide and assist you as usual in this new space.
We hope you like the new experience!
If you have any questions or comments about this new community, feel free to post here. We are listening.
Is there a way to have it default to "Latest" instead of "Relevant"?
Also even when I choose Latest, the order is by the original post date and not the replys. So current discussions quickly get buried and lost.
“Will older messages get restored at some time? Loss of the archive was a major pain when Webex was dumped in favor of Jive back in 2007, but apparently someone decided to repeat that mistake. Are countless hours of volunteer work discarded again?”
We have been told they have been archived, not deleted.
As Mike points out (I can no longer refer to his post because there are no post numbers) the default to Relevant makes it very difficult for ACP and MVP members to methodically answer recent questions. I’m not even sure what relevance means—relevant to what when I haven’t searched for anything?
I make a lot of documents in InDesign that I use in a variety of channels. Lately, I've had a few documents that my dev team wants to convert into online something or others. The dev team member who works on these projects says he doesn't have a design eye and asks me to redline out all the particulars of the document (font size, the exact location of each line by inches, etc.). Doing this for him is extremely time consuming. Does InDesign have a selection box I can click on that would provide these kinds of details so I don't have to manually determine them for him? THANKS!!
Great, now all search result from google redirect to main page.
Why would you do something like that?
J'avais 2 questions :
1 - Comment lancer une recherche mais uniquement dans la partie "Scritping" d'InDesign ?
J'ai essayé en saisissant "[scripting]" dans le champ de recherche, puis ensuite ce que je recherche, par exemple:
J'obtiens 157 résulats, qui portent tous le label "scripting" mais je ne peux en voir que quelques uns. Le site ne m'afiche qu'une page de résultats ! Comment voir la suite des 157 résultats ?
Ma deuxième question est celle-ci, quelle que soit la recherche que je lance seule la première page des résultats est visible :
2 - Comment voir tous les résultats d'une recherche ?
One more Q. Is there any reason my screen name (Supreme_Chancellor) is not showing up? Not a big fan of
"If you have any questions or comments about this new community, feel free to post here. We are listening."
I get the feeling noone is listening... Why do all hits from Google to this forum end up on the front page?
I can't get any info from Adobe Support Community via Google, what a waste of loads of wisdom.
Sorry about the delay, but we are listening and passing on your feedback continuously to the Product team. The older threads, which had no activities, have been archived and that is why it is being redirected to the main page. If there's anything specific which you want us to bring back, feel free to let me know. I'll try to get the content back. Please share the title of that thread, if you have it saved, so that I can check it.
Hi. "No activities"? What about reading or searching activities ? Let's make it straight and square: WE WANT THOSE THREADS BACK!
I just want to second Dirk's comment, as well as that of many others - not having access to the old forum messages is a disaster. It's a wealth of helpful information that is helpful for everyone from amateur to expert. You just have to bring the archives back and make them easily searchable.
Hi. I haven't been to the forum in a few weeks, but I do turn to it whenever I have a problem or need advice, and it has alwasy come through -- often within minutes. However, I was shocked to see the new format. I find it far less usable in all ways than the previous format, and not juse because I'm not used to it. There is less information on the screen -- this makes it harder to scan material. Topicality seems to be missing. It's just altogether clumsier. Perhaps the new design is meant to accommodate those who use the forum exclusively on their mobile phones? But frankly, I don't know an InDesign user who does NOT use a desktop computer (or a lappie with a big screen attached). Why the reformat? Sorry. It's awkward.
where is the best place to post this please?
Using InDesign, I am trying to re-format a supplied Word Document, coming from the client.
There are lots of complex (to me anyway) formulas in the text, which disappear when imported.
I'm using a work-around ... "Printing a PDF" from the supplied document and then "placing" in a picture box in my InDesign Doc, but really, in 2019, there must be another way (which is 100 times more time efficient)?
Any help appreciated.
As someone reading the forums by email subscription, I have some more negative observations:
In better/previous forum systems the author of any original message or response would be indicated by the "From:" field. WebEx did that, Jive did that. Even the PR forums does it. Now we just get a noisy "Adobe Support Community Mailer".
Next, it would be a very useful feature to preserve the subject, eventually prefix it with a "Re: ". In combination with appropriately maintained email fields such as "In-Reply-To:", this allows most email clients to sort&display messages in threads.
Instead, in some cases the new forum just copies a part of the response into the subject, leaving us completely out of context so we have to click thru to the original thread at the web site. Then, click "more answers" to expand and see it was irrelevant anyway.
Of course email subscriptions would be even better if messages contained the full contents, not just the first paragraph. If saving screen space is the intention, I could easily live without the fat, colorful "Adobe Support Community" banner on top.
Even more space savings are possible: The forum should not precede every message with "Hello your_name". I definitely know my name, I don't need a robot repeat it to me hundreds of times. When I fly thru emails, this should be a primary eye catcher to find messages addressed to me by the actual writer.
I've now gotten two emails that have the same message, but that don't link back to a message on the forum. Can't tell from the email if this is a private message or what. This is what the message says:
> Hi, The older threads which had no activities have been archived. If there's anything specific which you want us to bring back, feel free to let me know. I'll try to get the content back. Please share the title of that thread, if you have it saved, so that I can check it.
There's no author indicated in the email. Has anyone else seen this? Seems like this may be coming from an Adobe employee.
And if this is the solution they're proposing, oh boy, what a mess. a) how are we supposed to know what the old messages are that should be unarchived if we don't have access to the archive? b) what sense does it make to unarrchive messages one at a time? c) the criteria they used for archiving old threads, i.e. threads "which had no activities", is vague - what's that mean?
