InDesign 14.0.3 – FIXED

InDesign 14.0.3 is now live and publicly available!

InDesign 14.0.3.333 update has gone live (August 2019) and is available publicly. If you’re running InDesign 14 (CC 2019), please update to this version or newer.

The complete list of issues fixed in this release can be found at: https://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/kb/fixed-issues.html

The 14.0.3 update fixes the problem introduced by the previous InDesign update, 14.0.2, where bringing up IDImposer’s “Registration” or “About” dialog caused Mac InDesign to become ‘unresponsive’. See the previous post .

This problem with 14.0.2 release affected only InDesign for the Mac, but 14.0.3 also fixes many other InDesign issues, on both Mac and Windows.

And as long as you’re updating your InDesign, why not update your IDImposer, too?

May 2019 Update to InDesign Causes Registration Issue for IDImposer – FIXED

Update: InDesign 14.0.3 released

InDesign 14.0.3 or newer fixes this problem (and many others). 30 August 2019.

Original Post:

There is an acknowledged bug in the latest (as of May 2019) update to Mac InDesign CC, 14.0.2. You are most likely to run into it if you are trying to register your License Key, using the Register button in IDImposer. The registration dialog will display, but then both IDImposer and InDesign will lock up when you attempt to dismiss the Registration dialog, requiring you kill InDesign (Command-Option-Esc).

This bug affects many scripts, not just IDImposer, and there is, unfortunately, nothing that I can do to IDImposer to work around the problem.

The only known solution is to back out of the 14.0.2 update, and run 14.0.1, or earlier release of InDesign CC, or InDesign CS6. Hopefully a newer release of InDesign will also include a fix for the problem.
