  2. Option to lock text box position only, with text remaining editable

    I would love the ability to lock the position of text boxes in a layout, while still allowing editing of the text contents. (Similar to the multiple types of layer lock in Photoshop).

    This would be useful for the template documents I make and then share with collaborators. Other users edit the text, but sometimes accidentally nudge text boxes out of place that should be consistent in placement. I use Object Styles to check placement, but it's time-consuming to check each text box in a document with 100+ pages.

  3. Favourite font groups

    I'd like to be able to save some of my commonly used fonts into groups or themes of my choosing, such as calligraphic, infographic, corporate, Christmas etc.

    I realise InDesign (and other Adobe apps) already offer favourites and filters but the favourites list can get rather long and the filters don't always capture the fonts I'm actually trying to find, especially with non Adobe fonts. For example, I have a font called 'Beauty Night Script' installed and it doesn't show up in either the script, handwritten or decorative font filters.

    I think this feature could be quite useful for people…

  4. Spell Check to start from selected text or text box

    The ability to Spell Check to start from selected text or text box would be a real time saver.

    Maybe add an on/off toggle to see spelling errors when needed.

    I'm a horrible speller and sometimes just want to check what I just wrote not the entire document. I end up copying and pasting into Google which these days really confuses the (Artificial Intelligence).

    Please consider this for Illustrator too.

    Thank you.

  5. Base font

    It would be fantastic if I could select a base font to always come up if I'm substituting fonts (happens to me several times everyday) I would like to be able to change Minion to Helvetia Neue Pro as an auto rather than searching it out each time.

  6. Add Nepali to language list

    Can you add Nepali to the list of available languages in the Character dropdown? There are language-specific OT features that aren't supported without selecting the language, and it seems like a bit of an unnecessary workaround to mark text as Hindi in order to get correct display of glyphs for Nepali.

  7. Find/Change Apply to Anchored Text Boxes

    Find/change should be able to include any text boxes anchored in the search of a text box/story/selection. I use anchored text box objects in tables a lot, and on occasion, it would be helpful to be able to make a change to all the text with a certain paragraph style in a story, but not in the whole document. But with anchored objects, find/change won't see any text in anchored objects if you select the text box with the anchors, and you can't select multiple anchored objects at the same time. This makes it impossible/useless to find/change multiple text items…

  9. Can we please remove all the question marks from InDesign placeholder text?

    All of the question marks in placeholder text are an unrealistic representation of typical body copy. I end up having to remove them all when developing layout comps. Not a big deal, but annoying.

  10. Indesign 2024

    To the developers:

    I am in charge of a newspaper in the north of Spain, ALERTA. I am considering whether to switch to the new InDesign 2024 following the information from the presentation meeting your company held. It has taken me time to adapt our catalog to your new policy on Type 1 fonts. Once this issue was resolved, and I was able to look at the new features of the new version, I found that some of the things said in that presentation are either false or not entirely true to reality. That story about the new paragraph styles…

  11. Idea to create a simpler way to type on path with ellipse / circle

    I wish you could create a better and simpler way to type on path, especially on ellipses / circles. It's SUPER difficult when you have to work with multiple lines in a circle, like we used to on a CD for example.

    My pitch:
    What if we could treat typing on path like a text box? So you draw the ellipse / shape from the Type on Path menu, and the text automatically gets treated as if Typing on a line / shape?
    And when you press Return, it behaves like it would in a paragraph (text going to the…

  13. Serbian language

    Hello, on behalf of all the page layout designers from Serbia, I am asking you to include support for the Serbian language in a future version of Indesign. We use both Cyrillic and Latin letters equally, so this option would mean a lot to us.
    Thank you!

  14. copa airlines baggage fees

    Copa Airlines commonly includes a complimentary checked baggage allowance with your ticket, varying based on factors such as travel class and destination. Should you exceed this allowance or require additional checked bags, fees may apply. It's crucial to check Copa Airlines' official website or contact the airline directly for the most accurate and up-to-date information on checked baggage fees. https://baggagebee.com/blog/copa-airlines-baggage-allowance/

  15. AI Translation in future InDesign

    Adobe Express now has built-in AI translation services for their product. Why is this not available in InDesign?

    I'm not expecting 100% accuracy, we have translators to proof results, but this would be so much more efficient as a first-pass instead of exporting IDML to send to a service or through Trados software.

  16. Replacement of ending Type 1 fonts

    I would like to ask if it would be possible to create a setting / tool for automatic replacement of ending fonts when opening a file.

    "Font 1" will automatically change to the user-preset "Font 2" when opening the file.

    eg: Frutiger CE 65 Bold (ending font) => Frutiger CE Bold (user set)

    It would certainly make the job easier for users, for example we have over 1000 .indd files with ending fonts, which are gradually updated regularly and everything is replaced manually. One file has over 12 missing fonts.

    Thank you for your response

  17. AI assisted paragraph´s hyphenation and justification

    could Indesign suggest different H&J options for the selected paragraph so the designer could choose the best suited, among available options?

    Artificial Intelligence offers 3 options to choose in Photoshop.
    Could we have 3 AI assisted h&j options to choose from?

    Auto resize text to fit text box with a character limit would allow me to use it as a dynamic form that would be print ready.

  19. Allow the continuity of footnotes according to pages and not blocks OR chaining anchored text blocks ?!

    I use anchored boxes which (unfortunately) contain notes.
    The numbering of the notes resumes as if it were the start of another document, that is to say at 1.
    I would like it to be possible for these note numbers to follow the previous ones and for the following ones to take them into account:
    note 1 in the text – anchored box with note which should be 2 (and not 1) – note which should be 3 in the text (but which will be 2…). Aaaargh…
    Perhaps a numbering option like in the paragraph styles/Bullets and numbering options where…

  20. Font Height Reference. Can we have this existing Illustrator functionality for Indesign?

    This is very useful for producing legible large-format environmental graphics. Often distance legibility tables are based on the x-height or the cap height. Being able to set these directly without an Em box look-up will save a significant amount of time.
