I agree. It should work between the two, no question. This is an old old post, but just saw the same issue happening. It fixed for me, in indd2021 by putting the object I was copying straight on a new artboard, and bingoringo, worked a treat! Hope that helps!

Figured it out: If you add a cross-reference, by default it looks like normal text rather than a hyperlink and will not be clickable in the exported PDF. However, if you have the "hyperlinks" box checked in the PDF export options, InDesign will make the cross-reference a clickable link - it just won't look like a clickable link. If you want to use ...

Sure. InDesign has a much more robust text engine as well as things like Master Pages, Story Editor, Book, Table of Contents, Index, etc. features. So, InDesign is better equipped for books in almost all instances. However, if you are looking at creating something with a small page count, no Table of Contents, no Index, and don't really need the other ...

The text in question is marked as non-printing (Attributes panel, [x] Nonprinting). In the example below the second text box is marked as non-printing, therefore will not export.

I can't tell show you a fully automated way to do this, but I have something better than using baseline shift: simply move the inline objects. What happens when you paste an object into a text frame isn't really that it "makes things go to the bottom". Anchored objects by default simply sits on the same line as the letters. The anchored object must ...

I'm pretty sure it would be possible to insert text at least, but I don't honestly know if InCopy allows data merge, but anyway . . . Personally, I wouldn't let the client do it. They are sure to mess it up in some way, and unless you know Chinese, you won't even know if it's wrong. To be honest, I wouldn't even let an English speaking client loose on my ...

InCopy is collaborative, while Data Merge is just an InDesign feature that doesn't sync automatically between different users. InCopy could work, assuming they have a running license of InCopy on their end. Data Merge not very likely to work for this, unless you expect them to run InDesign inhouse and understand a Data Merge workflow. Since these are just ...

I had the same issue. Save your file, close it, and try updating indesign in creative cloud. When I reopened the application it worked again
