  • [macOS]Unable to check out InCopy files that are saved on a network location in Windows.

I won´t ever and never understand why we need a clone of Story Editor (CTRL+Y).

Updated and no sign of the Copy Editor (Beta). It's not shown in the menu. I also tried the shortcut but nothing. 

I'm using the Swedish version but the Swedish "whats-new" page shows info about it.

Can I activate beta features somewhere?

I also have the same question as the previous post. Why do we need two text editors?

I believe Copy Editor (Beta) isn't available in all languages. During prerelease, the product manager wrote: "You will not be able to see the Copy Editor unless you are working on the Roman feature set and English UI based InDesign."

 

I think the Copy Editor (Beta) is basically a workaround if you're encountering slow typing speed in InDesign. I don't see it as a permanent solution.

Incidentally, version 15.1.2 is being rolled out around the world over a week. It's not yet available in all localities.

Don't know how relevant that is? The update is avalaible here in Sweden and Adobe tells me in Swedish that this feature is new right here: https://helpx.adobe.com/se/indesign/using/whats-new.html

Well, I saw the feature in the English language version of 15.1.2 in the Beta Program. But it hasn't shown up yet on the West Coast of the US for release. And of course I don't have a Swedish language version.

 

All I know is what the product manager wrote in the forum for Prerelease. If you don't see it, it's probably just not there. Sometimes fine details get lost in a busy development team when features are passed to those are writing documentation.

I can't remember ever seeing a release note from Adobe showing a new feature that isn't there.

Few months ago we never have it updates that we can't download by days. Here and now we can wait receiving update by days and don't see new features that anounced in the release. Strange times. Winter is coming.

Hi,

Currently copy editor is rolled out to only some % of the users that satisfy the criteria of "non-enterprise InDesign application with English language of Roman feature set"

 

Based on the user feedback we will see how to proceed with this experimental feature.

Thanks

just updated to 15.1.2 and all my documents with hyperlinks in tables now have a massive vertical blue line down the middle of the document which I can't remove unless I delete the whole column with the hyperlinks in, this has seriously impacted my work as all my documents up to today, including my master template files now have this error!!

on further investigation - this is caused by the default Hyperlink style setting when you add a hyperlink and use hyperlink style - this line appears!

Hi Planet_Twig,

 

Thanks for pointing out the issue!!

We have tried this out at our end, and can confirm that this is a break in ID15.1.2 builds and is happening when using a particular Variable Font and deafult Hyperlinks character style together.

 

We will be investigating it further and work towards fixing it.

 

Thanks and Regards,
Prateek
