This has been a pain in my ass for a very long time with Adobe, since CS6 I have been opening a blank document then position and size it they way I want, so every doc I open with the blank open, will keep the size and position I want, still stupid as hell that I have to do that anyway.
Just program a Document Setup prior to opening anything.

It works, but thickens the type on the output
Some people like their type "thick".

You might get away with it.

Y'all missed the best new InDesign feature:


New Document dialog for MENA versions

Now, while creating a document in MENA (Middle East and North Africa) version of InDesign, instead of beginning with a blank document, you can choose from a wide variety of templates which were earlier available for Roman feature set.only. This includes Arabic, Hebrew, and French (Morocco) locales.

Here's another big F-U... Suitcase Fusion hasn't updated for CC yet and now auto-activation is gone. And apparently CC sees font names differently, because even when force activated, they don't sync up right. Obviously, there's workarounds, but it's an extra step (for now).
Didn't you post yesterday saying that you don't use font management anymore?  :huh:
I forgot to preface that with saying, "at my old shop." But I also could have been lying/BS-ing. You never know with me.

One + to CC2018. When placing a file now, the "Show Import Options" default is now shown, rather than hidden.

The stupid-ass document size and position is still NOT remembered if you have application frame turned off in Indy. I hate using the application frame but if you don't your document window is under your toolbar and pallets. FU Adobe.

Do you have the machine set to face true north or magnetic north? 

Maybe moving it to it's new location upset it's alignment with a local ley line? 

Just throwing out ideas here since I would assume that nothing was changed between when it was working before and now.

Photoshop New features summary
Oh good, that new Variable fonts "feature" ("a new OpenType font format supporting custom attributes like weight, width, slant, optical size, etc") won't cause any problems for us since Photoshop is for photo editing.  :sarcasm:

...looks like this has also been added to Illustrator.

Last resort: open up the PDF in Photoshop and print that. Then call Xerox tech support. Maybe there's a belated tweak in the software you didn't get yet.
