  • InDesign crashes while exporting the document as PDF.
  • InDesign crashes on using Adjust Layout, if the document has an overset table.

Improvement to new features

  • Some glyphs collapse while using a variable font in InDesign with Type > Create Outlines.
  • Color dropdown width for column rules is too small to read swatch name.

Core feature and workflow

  • Spell check does not work when spelling dictionary in Preferences > Dictionary is set to Proximity.
  • PDF Export fails for a specific indd file.
  • Presentation mode does not work as expected on MacBook Pro.
  • InDesign is unable to recognize system fonts like Avenir and Avenir Next.
  • Selection of text does not work for SEA languages in InCopy Galley view.
  • Fonts in folders which are named with a prefix # are not recognized.

Accessibility

  • Accessibility checker fails for elements in a group even if they have Alt Text in InDesign.

This time it has been done in an incremental manner and many of you must not see the updates as of today. By the end of the week, updates will roll out to all.​

Thanks, George!

one thing to add: The exact version is 15.0.3.425.

( Which is not exactly the lastest version of 15.0.3 you'll find at Prerelease. )

 

Regards,
Uwe Laubender

PS: Still I cannot see the update in my CC Desktop App. Hope, that will change soon.

InDesign is showing on my laptop as fully up to date but the problems with missing footnotes and random blank pages are still just as bad: I cannot work with this! It has only started happening in the last few weeks - what has gone wrong?

Thank you Uwe,



I’m not sure how to find out exactly which version. I’m on Windows and InDesign is showing in the Creative Cloud as completely up to date.



The problems only started recently – within the last couple of weeks, and keep recurring – I can save a document which looks fine, then export to PDF and suddenly footnotes are missing and blank pages have been inserted.



Best,



Ruth

Hi Ruth,

to get the exact version info hold your Ctrl key and invoke Help > About InDesign when no document is open.

If you could share a document I'd like to see into the issue. Put in on Dropbox or a similar service and post the link.

 

Thanks,
Uwe Laubender

Thank you. I've been through the whole document line by line to check the footnotes (sometimes all the footnotes are missing from a page, sometimes, for example, 4,5,10 and 11 will be there, but not the ones between). It's impossible to tell when it's going to happen - I have (I think) managed to get all the files as they should be. I'm working on them now - when either problem happens again, I'll post the file via a OneDrive link.
