  2. Bad visualization

    Hi. Many times I delete a text and the visualization is not good. I do not know if this is the place to comment on it.

  3. A strange space at the beginning of each line after the first letter.

    I occasionally encounter a strange and annoying bug, which sometimes also causes me damage to clients. After the first letter at the beginning of each line, a space is created, and I can not undo the space.

    Please solutions

  4. Similar to TOC, have InDesign remove forced returns (Shift+Enter) in a cross-reference.

    If a referenced paragraph has a Shift+Return in it, it's present in the cross-reference. TOCs have an option to ignore them, and cross-references could as well.

  5. Removing the 1 point minimum value between tab stops

    When setting tab stops next to each other Indesign has a minimum value of 1 point between stops.

    This is too much in many cases.
    For instance if you want to have hanging quotation marks using tabs this minimum value makes the distance too large in most text sizes.

    Please let the user define the minimum value freely.

  6. Make “Undeline Options” in the Character panel maintain the last settings.

    Please make “Undeline Options” in the Character panel maintain the last settings and apply those to each new underlinining, as opposed to resetting to the default every time. As this makes us users have to go into the Character dropdown for “Undeline Options” and set the distance and with over and over and over and over again ... Yes, applying styles may take care of this problem but I don’t alway bother to create styles for each small project. Thank you!

  7. Strip Newlines from Cross-References and Table of Contents

    When taking some headlines that have newlines in them, cross reference also keep inline newlines in the text they output. This can also occur in table of contents.

    It would be nice to have a checkbox that would strip newlines from these.

    There is also a bug where if a heading's style changes in the middle of the paragraph (I have a box with a smaller heading and then a colon with a subtitle afterwards eg. "Abilities: Learning to Stack Techniques", the text before the colon and the text after have different styles), sometimes the cross reference will output that…

  8. Correction in Dictionary Criteria for Hyphens (Portuguese)

    Most of hyphenation in Portuguese splits sylables from two consonants in a row (r-r, s-s Ex: 'car-ro', 'profis-são'), but this is not true for nasal sounds formed with the letter H (lh, nh) and I see myself having to review this hyphenation constantly. For example, the correct hyphenation is 'traba-lho', but inDesign usually hyphenates 'trabal-ho' (which is incorrect). It is a simple addition to the program that could save a lot of reviewing time.
    There are some other issues too.
    Could you please check that out and review the hyphenation rules as of grammar? Portuguese has quite a bit of…

  10. Paragraph adjacent to the previous without indentation

    Such a paragraph model exists in some word processors. It's not always convenient to add the same nested styles to a dozen different paragraph styles.

    Also, this feature would solve some other problems (for example, you could create a list in one paragraph)

  11. Customizing Numbering Style Format

    Sometimes there is a need to use non-standard (for InDesign) formatting of lists (there is a need to use the alphabet of the Cyrillic alphabet or the Greek alphabet or something else). It would be nice to be able to do this.

  12. Markierter Text

    Seit dem letzten Update reagiert die Tastatur seltsam.
    Markiert man in einem gewöhnlichen Texrahmen ein einzelnes Zeichen und schreibt ein neues ist alles wie gewohnt.
    Sobald man aber zwei oder mehr Zeichen markiert schreibt InDesign erst beim zweiten Zeichenanschlag. Das erste eingetippte Zeichen wird also immer unterschlagen, sehr nervig!

  13. Show Hidden Characters

    When you have "Show Hidden Characters" turned on, we don't really need to see the hidden characters of the type that's on the Master Pages.

    The reason I'm asking that is that with this option turned on, it interferes with my ability to read small type that's on the Master Pages.

    I mean, if I'm looking at a Master Page, sure it could be on, but if I'm looking a the regular pages with that feature turned on, I usually don't need to see those hidden characters of the type that's on the Master Pages.

  14. custom tracking/kerning display option (Preferences/Composition) could show varying degrees of shading

    it seems to me that a previous version of ID had this feature: under Preferences/Composition, when "custom tracking/kerning" was selected, the paragraph shading was of different degrees (lighter to darker) depending on the tracking level selected

  15. I want to be able to search for an empty cell in a table, and able to add the cell icon (square) in a search..

    I want to be able search for the cell icon in a table or an empty cell.

    Sometimes I have to search for empty cells in tables and replace them with an en dash to show that they are intentionally empty.

    When you have over 70 tables in each book it would be really helpful to be able to search for an empty cell.

    And sometimes I need to search for characters that appear all over the document but I only want to find the ones in a cell, so being able to specify that icon in a search would…

  18. Overhanging glyphs

    Gentlemen, this may be covered already, but it annoys me that when the letter “f” and maybe others appear in a justified paragraph they overhang the right margin. I believe the same may apply to the left margin with a few glyphs in italics.

  20. Turn on/off show spell check in PREVIEW or other screen modes. Not just NORMAL

    When switching between NORMAL screen Mode to PREVIEW mode I still want any spelling errors to show. This would be great in any screen mode with some kind of a toggle button. In fact, the ability to show various hidden paragraph and character formatting would be brilliant.
