  1. Font tool and Character panel lockup

    When selecting a font from the character panel or selecting text from a document after opening the file InDesign locks up. It happens without fail since the update and the lockup time range from a minute to going on 5 minutes plus (finally just restart the app).

    PC Version on Windows 10

  2. Text Variable as a consecutive number

    Possibility of defining and inserting a text variable as a consecutive number of the list.
    Thanks to this variable it will be possible to number subsequent words in a sentence. For example (1) thing, (2) thing, (3) thing etc, or thing1, thing2, thing3 etc. There are infinitely many possibilities. Verse of poetry at the end of the verse etc. References to comments which are not endnotes or footnotes (without laborious definition of cross references). Sometimes it is necessary to list the words or any fragment of text within a paragraph, or to add numbered references to comments inside the text.

  3. Folder structure in saved queries

    I need to organize saved Search/Replace queries into folders. Just like styles.

    (Now I have a few dozens of queries in a very long list. Plus some document/workflow has special queries, so I don't want mix them. A folder structure would be more straightforward)

  4. Show warning if you try to spellcheck checked-in text

    If you spellcheck a text which is checked in no changes will be made. You only get the information that 0 changes were made. This behaviour may be logically correct, but it i user-unfriendly.
    Please inform the user that he/she is spell-checking a checked-in text. Plus: Allow him/her at this point to check out the text.

  8. Please add the possibility of using conditional text to the Table of Contents.

    Sometimes we need to shorten the title, or generate a list of abbreviations, a table of contents for each section, or any other list that could use the Conditional Text.

    Conditional Texts can be created independently of Character Styles.

    This should work.

    What do you think about it?

  9. Create paragraph style from manual formatting and apply to all text with the same formatting

    A common task is converting manual text formatting to a paragraph style. It would be great if there were a way to do this automatically.

    For example, suppose I was given a LONG document in which Helvetica 12pt text is the body style, but no actual paragraph style exists for this—all the formatting is manual.

    The current best way to solve this problem is to perform a Find/Change operation for all text formatted as Helvetica 12pt and replace it with my paragraph style for "body text." This works but is tedious, especially when there are many styles in the document,…

  13. Functionality to edit story order for InCopy and ADA reading order

    We update documents several times a year and have just started using InCopy. It would be beneficial to have the ability to control the story order to match your layout. This could be utilized to sync the order when viewing in the story editor mode (especially in InCopy) and additional functionality to pair with Acrobat when setting up ADA compatible file reading order which we do on every file.

  15. Allow for social media glyphs to behave as characters in hyphenation and linebreaks

    With social media references in almost every document, InDesign seems to break social media handles awkwardly , notably with the @-sign and the #-sign. For example, a sentence that includes a Twitter handle will oftentimes break between the @ and the actual handle name:

    blah blah blah blah blah lorem ipsum blah blah send us a tweet now! @
    adobeindesign is our name.

    Same thing with hashtags.

  16. Pixel instead of point sizes for type in a web layout

    We would like to be able to measure the type size in indesign as pixels rather than points, when we choose a web layout. The same way that the document size is measured in pixels instead of mm. Thanks!

  18. Mark to Mark Kerning & Positioning

    Dear Adobe, you should really introduce mark to mark Kerning and Positioning in CC. These features are really crucial in resolving a lot of issues in Indic type design and it's dismal that none of the Adobe software support it. Apple's basic applications like PAGES supports it but not InDesign which is literally sad.

  20. Paragraph Overrides

    You used to be able to hover your mouse over a paragraph style in the paragraph style panel that had an override (plus sign). When you hovered over this style it would display a tool tip showing you what was overriding that style. This no longer works.

    InDesign magazine has even written an article about it... https://indesignsecrets.com/how-to-get-tooltips-working-again.php

    The only way to fix this problem is to resize the panel. Every time you need to see what is overriding a style you have to resize the panel meaning you may have to resize the panel dozens of times for a document.
