  1. Independent column widths

    Please add the option to have independent column-widths in a text frame. This would be really useful for text in nearly any letterhead footer.

  2. Replace all missing glyphs

    Option in the find replace dialogue to replace all missing glyphs, not just swapping one glyph for another. As far as I know, you have to go one by one throughout a document. The find/replace Opentype feature (text tab hasn't worked for me either.)

  3. Outlining text removes underlines (line above and below)

    When supplying PDFs to printers they often/always require all text to be outlined. If you put an underline on any text and than go 'Type > Create Outlines', only the text becomes outlined and it completely removes any underline (line above and below that I've setup in paragraph styles). Expected results: To have the text outlined and retain the line above/below.

  6. Fit text to frame

    This is a very important feature for anyone doing desktop publishing and has to fit different variations of text into a predefined text frame size.

  7. Native language hyphenation

    My German client would love if their words broke naturally not at random bits of words, similar to how shows the proper place for word breaks: www.silbentrennung24.de

  8. When you highlight text - then select something else - it would be really cool if the same text was selected when you went back to it

    When you highlight a block of text - then select a different element - it would be really cool if the text was highlighted when you went back to the text box and selected it.

  9. Create the condition from a list of paragraphs/character styles

    Ability to create the new condition form a list of paragraph style or character styles
    I would improve the ability to search on more than 1 paragraph/character style at once.

    Sometimes you have to search more than one style – rather than go through each style at once, the ability to create a condition to select a range of styles would be useful.

  10. Only show Open Type »O« if there really are Open Type features

    It makes no sense to show the »O« if there are no Open Type features. But it slows down the workflow: every time you move the mouse to the O to see if there are maybe some alternatives – and there are not – you loose time. Not very much time, but it adds up.

  12. Threaded Text in Tables

    This feature will allow text threading via table cells to flow the text across the table.

    This will personally help me because I need to colorize specific areas while keeping the text flow. A table is the only real place I can do this.
