  3. 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.

  5. Provide better keyboard support in Story view.

    Provide better keyboard support in Story view. Currently PageUp and PageDn and other scrolling keys don't work, and I am forced to use the mouse for long-distance scrolling.

  6. Paragraph shading with rounded corners

    Paragraph shading is very useful, but for some reason clients always seem to want to have rounded corners on boxes/panels :)

    If we could have rounded corners that we can define the radius of this would give a lot more flexibility for layout. Paragraph shading works inside table cells too so this would open up a lot of possibilities for table styles.

  7. Add ability to define text sections

    There could be a panel much like the conditional text panel, which allows you to define and name text ranges/sections, which should be stackable.

    Thinking of HTML/XML/EPUB export of content, you are then able to feed the sections into div containers (<div class="sec1"><h1>Blabla</h1><p>blablablablabl</p>...</div>).
    Nowadays such containers, which you must have according to the DTD/Schema or Website the content will be published after print publishing, have to be added by hand or with tricky XSLT programming.

  8. 'Apply Similar Filter' character addition

    As already used in Photoshop and Illustrator, the 'Apply Similar Filter' to text and character seems like a logical step, given that InDesign is a primarily text heavy application, being able to select similar fonts would be a must in my books.

  9. Provide a linking feature to duplicate text from one frame into others

    It would be highly valuable to be able to define a parent text frame and then link that frame to other frames in a layout that duplicates the text in that frame.

    This would be similar to the way that text links in alternate layouts work, but the styles to the linked (child?) frames are allowed to be independent of the parent.

    Trying to use text variables for this kind of duplication runs into the multi-line issue. Copying linked frames from alternate layouts will result in the parent style of the linked text to overrun any changes made to the…

  10. Footnotes: ability to cite multiple references to a footnote, with appropriate tagging for accessibility

    Each new instance of a footnote added in InDesign gets a sequential number – but authors and copywriters expect to be able to insert multiple references to the same numbered footnote. For example, a bank might want to put a single asterisk against multiple references to ‘interest rate’, with one corresponding footnote at the end to explain what 'APR', or 'EAR' means. So I’d like a new feature to be added that would, at the point of inserting a footnote, give the option to cite an existing one that’s already in the document. In an exported accessible PDF, there would be…

  11. Paragraph Rules in Find/Change and a new Panel?

    Please add Paragraph Rules to the Find Change dialog box. I often need to change rule thickness or color to paragraph rules that are not in a paragraph or character style. Manually changing each selection takes quite a bit of time and should be automated.

    A floating/dockable paragraph rules panel would be helpful when having to change a file with multiple paragraph rules applied manually and not in a style. As it is now I have to select each instance and open the dialog box and change the rule settings.

    Also, please show both rule above and below at the…

  13. GREP 'soft' Find and Replace

    I'd like to be able to use GREP to search for a particular string (in a particular style) and then hide it and replace it with a different string with a selected style.

    This would allow me to replace, for example, the company's name written in full with the company's logo (which is a single character in a special font) without destroying the text. It could also allow me to replace the words for 'wheelchair access' with the icon etc.

  14. paste without formatting

    Shortcuts: I am saddened that the paste commands have been changed around. Paste Without Formatting has lost its shortcut status and replaced with Paste In Place (in line with Illustrator); Paste Into has become Ctrl+Alt+Shift+V (previously Paste In Place). This might make sense to align with Illustrator but I use the Paste Without Formatting option a lot of the time. The previous Paste Into (Ctrl+Alt+V Windows, Ctrl+Option+V Mac) now appears to be free - could this be the new Paste Without Formatting?
