  1. INDESIGN 14.0.3: Someone Said, “No New Features” but when you Read The List of “Fixed Issues,” the Number of Serious Bugs, Crash Errors, and Features that simply didn’t work, I would say this IS a MAJOR Upgrade. It is Scandalous that none of the more serious issues had not been fixed since March 2019, and now only weeks away from InDesign CC 2020 release.. Yea another Bug Ridden Release from October until March once again. Now watch how many hate comments I get for saying this!

    • Well, the thing about these “bug fix” lists is that they’re always misleading. Most InDesign users never saw these bugs; but some people did. I have been using CC 2019 since it came out, with very few problems. A few other people had problems all the time. ALL software has bugs. I’m pleased that Adobe keeps working at fixing the problems.

      Note that they focused on many of the top bugs reported in uservoice, which are now tagged as solved:
