Hi Lawrence, as I replied to Dirk, yes, the current system is horribly broken. I'm told it's being worked on and should be fixed soon to match the old forum. I have no idea how it get launched this way.

Hi Bob,

Any idea when this might be fixed?

 

What was a very good tool / learning resource is now ruined.

 

All the best.

Hi

 

This alert showed up and I clicked it twice. Although it brings me to this thread, I cannot find Om's message to read all of it. It must be buried somewhere in here?

Its a reply to the second post, good luck finding it since you have to manually drop down the replys and half of them are empty.

Wow. I hope this is one of the things they’re looking at fixing.

 

this turns the classic “it’s not a bug, it’s a feature” on its head. Clearly this is an intended feature that’s effectively a bug.

Hi again!
Somehow I got this reply to my request to access old threads (cant find this answer here, only in my mail fom Adobe Support Community):

Well, I am new to Extendscript, so I do searches every day on google, most of the hits I get links to Adobe Support Community, and are now totally irrelevant.

Please restore all old threads, the fact that they are inactive doesn’t mean they do not have great content.

Cheers
Johan

I'm in the same boat, It's made making any progress in learning extendScript next to impossible. I created a uservoice request here: https://indesign.uservoice.com/forums/913162-adobe-indesign-sdk-scripting-bugs-and-features/suggesti...

Also, I saw that reply on this thread at some point, but I think it was deleted.

It's been merged with the general forum, which is catastrophic for beginners trying to find help. You can vote here & try to get them seperated again:

Dear "Adobe forum"...

When you'll recover because of the bullet that you shot yourself in the foot, will you be kind enough to answer to the people who kindly brought a couple of major* issues (please read above)...

I have thousands of other issues to bring up, but I'll be nice to you, I'll wait a little bit, but hurry up... Who knows when Google caches will be deleted?

 

For your own sake, dear "Adobe forum", wake up, give us a proof of life...

 

 

Looking forward to hear from you, and not something like "we are working on improvments".

 

Vinny

 

* by "major", I mean "lethal"

Did you by chance visit our neighbors - Illy folks? I'm attaching the screenshot of just one post - one of the many.
Adobe, I hope you didn't pay much for this… ehm… masterpiece. Because this whole thing is a bold, obvious, EPIC FAIL. Not worth a single penny. And I'm NOT looking forward for the answer. You don't have what to say, as I see it.

Hi Brit,

 

Thanks for reaching out. As of now, we do not have InDesign available for mobile devices, however, we do have mobile applications which you can use in combination with Desktop app to create layouts on your phone or tablet using natural drawing gestures. For more details, please take look at this help article: https://helpx.adobe.com/mobile-apps/how-to/layout-ideas-go.html

 

Regards!

I recently updated my operating system to Mojave 10.14.6 and can no longer run my InDesign program (CS4). Is there a way to make it compatible without buying a new one?

Hi Betty,

 

Sorry to hear about this. CS applications have been discontinued and are no longer compatible with today's OS (https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/system-requirements-old-versions.html). I am afraid, attempts to troubleshoot the install could result in it becoming unusable. We strongly recommend upgrading your software to a newer version that is supported or downgrade the operating system.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions.

 

Regards!

I have just had a mac hard drive (in a 2015 imac) replaced by a SSD drive. Indesign opens and appears to work properly, but each time it opens, it tells me that ButtonLibrary.indl could not be found, and asks if I want to postpone its recovery. "Yes" to recover it later, "No" to delete recovery data, and "Cancel" to postpone document recovery. I've been choosing "Cancel" and Indesign appears to work properly. I'm using Indesign 14.0.2, my files do not have any buttons.

Hi John,

 

Sorry about this. I am hopeful that the issue is resolved by now. If not, please take a look at the steps shared on this similar discussion: https://community.adobe.com/t5/InDesign/Unable-to-open-InDesign-2017-on-MAC-Error-Cannot-open-Librar...

 

Also, I would suggest if you could update the InDesign to v14.0.3 and check if that helps.

 

Let us know if you need any further assistance.

 

Thanks!

Are you really listening?

What a big step backwards, so difficult to find any content relating to what you are looking for now the sub-catagories can't be searched. If you're really listening then please tell us when this will be addressed as this forum has quickly becoming redundant with many users for this, and I'm sure many other reasons.

I dont like the 'overhaul' at all, and agree with most concerns. But the old threads, gone, forever? What a pity!

 

edit:

And this spam…
