I find it interesting that this was the first time I chose to delete the previous version. Windows uses Roaming App Data for a lot of preferences, so I still have that folder from the previous versions. For me it was mainly panel defaults and general preferences. Today I noticed I hide unnecessary control bar items that are in the properties panel or other panels anyway. It also removed all my saved document presets. Things like Find/Change/GREP queries stayed intact ..read more

Thanks, Mike. I’ve learned with Adobe and a few other VIP (very important apps) that “making so much sense” isn’t always a priority! :-) I’ll give the alias suggestion a try, as I don’t think it could hurt. Much. Anticipate a report after testing ..read more

Hi Marc Same happened to me on macOS. I’m glad that I didn’t check the box to ‘delete previous version’ which I do with Illustrator and Photoshop. With Indesign I end up with multiple versions of the app because of the non-backward compatibility of major updates, not to mention it is the most crash-prone app I use – with the first indd file I opened and converted to v19 I’ve already had crashes caused by just moving an anchored object. It’s quite annoying as none of the other Adobe apps with new versions this week had the same issue, but since Adobe had a warning box ready to pop up it’s clear ..read more

I updated InDesign to 2024. Upon opening it for the first time, it opened a pop-up saying my preferences were created with an older version, and told me it was replacing with new preferences. I’m on a Windows machine and experienced with moving files in app data, but will moving the 2023 preferences into the 2024 not work? Has anyone else experienced this? It seems to me that it was done when installed as my CC settings indicate to copy old preferences. Is there a way to get it back? There’s a lot of settings that I have to redo, including the auto complete and user dictionary ..read more

Adobe hasn’t updated the index feature in a very long time, so I don’t think you can do that. However, there are several other tools for doing indexing with InDesign… mostly scripts that can help. See: Alternatives for InDesign Indexing and this excellent list of scripts: https://creativepro.com/files/kahrel/indesign/lists_indexes.html here’s a review of Indexmatic 3: IndexMatic3 Review ..read more

To translate a distance (in points) to a kerning value, you multiply that distance by (1000 / point size). So to add 6 points between two characters, you do app.selection[0].kerningValue = 6 * (1000 / app.selection[0].pointSize); I used that in the compose script (https://creativepro.com/files/kahrel/indesign/compose.html ..read more

I was never aware of Dave’s script. It’s a very clever solution, but for me the sidebearing showing up at the start of a line is a kerning problem, and my kerning script deals with it: https://creativepro.com/files/kahrel/indesign/kern.html ..read more
