5.24.02-1 Released 2018.01.09

Bug Fix) The asset Manager in both Adobe InCopy and Adobe InDesign would occasionally not show the Print Ready icon in the 'R' column or list 'Print Ready' in the preview area. This was happening because of a bug in the code that has now been fixed. You should not be able to properly tell that Print Ready is set on an asset. JIRA INDESIGN-873

Improvement) For Creative Cloud versions of Adobe InDesign and Adobe InCopy, pressing the enter or return key after typing Search Text or Slug text in the Basic Search tab will now perform a search as it does in the browser interface. Clicking an asset and then pressing the enter or return key will then place the asset. JIRA INDESIGN-987

Bug Fix) The Advanced Search function of the Asset Manager was throwing a silent internal error when selecting a saved search. Consequently it wasn't allowing any of the Advanced Saved searches to work. In addition, you could not save a new Advanced Search. All these issues have been corrected and the Advanced Search panel is completely useable again. JIRA INDESIGN-1812

New Feature) There is a new feature for Creative Cloud versions of Adobe InDesign and Adobe InCopy that allow the Syndication Channel searches in the Asset Manager to default to nothing earlier than 72 hours. That helps to insure that if you are adding an asset via the Syndication Tab that the asset you add would have images that were downloadable from AP. Remember that AP limits automatic download of images to 72 hours. Because Modification time and Start Time might not be the same, this still might allow you to import an Asset form AP where they won't allow auto downloading of the child image assets, but it certainly helps to insure that you get images. JIRA INDESIGN-2013

5.24.01-1 Released 2018.01.03

Bug Fix) Some sites had problems with the loading of the PDF Preset used by Page Tracker for its previews. The result is that they would get a new numbered preset loaded each time a user logged in to BLOX Total CMS in Adobe InDesign. The method of determining if the preset is already loaded has been changed so that hopefully it no longer duplicates the presets. Any existing presets will still exist however. There are a couple of future features that will allow a site to specify their own Page Tracker Preset. And another feature will auto load all desired presets during login. JIRA INDESIGN-1853

Behavior Change) We have had reports for several years of a very intermittent bug dealing with the export of Hyperlinks from Adobe InDesign and/or Adobe InCopy to the CMS. This prevented the write-back of the asset. We still do not know the cause of the issue, but it should no longer prevent the write-back of the asset, but it will remove the hyperlink if the problem occurs. JIRA INDESIGN-1909

Important Bug fix) We had a report from one site where if inline assets are used between custom html notes to specify the start and stop of custom formatting. Normal style notes worked fine, but custom notes did not. This has been corrected and we know of no write-back problems. JIRA INDESIGN-1974

Bug Fix) There was an esoteric error thrown when checking in or saving content of a parent asset placed in Adobe InDesign when it had a child article asset that had related content. This was caused by the function that removed the children (to speed the process) grabbing the end of the releated_content array rather than the end of the children array. To work around this issue, until the CMS automatically removes the child assets, the related content items are removed before removing the children. JIRA INDESIGN-2017
