  1. Add ability to convert a cross-document shared destination hyperlink to a regular URL without losing/re-entering the link

    FEATURE REQUEST

    In order to help avoid broken and/or inadvertent cross-document shared links, please:

    1. Add a function to the Edit Hyperlink dialog to CONVERT a hyperlink url currently shared from another document into a normal self-sufficient url unlinked from the source document. (Currently, making this change to a hyperlink requires the user to change the selection in the "Link To:" dropdown menu from "Shared Destination" to "URL" which clears the previous the URL, and then hunt down the source URL and manually re-input it.)

    2. Add the ability to apply this conversion to multiple selected hyperlinks at one time from the…

  2. Kennzeichnung aufeinander basierender Formate

    Von der ersten Version an bis heute, vermisse ich die optische Darstellung von aufeinander basierenden Formaten in den Bedienfeldern Absatz-, Zeichen- und Objektformaten. Auf einen Blick zu wissen, welche Formate aufeinander basieren bzw. nicht basieren, sollten farblich oder mit einem grafischen Symbol gekennzeichnet werden. Eine Gruppierung von aufeinander basierenden Formaten kann ich mir auch vorstellen. Die Option für die Darstellung des Basierens sollte im Optionsmenü der Bedienfelder zu Verfügung stehen.

  3. Paragraph shading (and borders) should be able to clip/inset based on the text box

    Paragraph shading extends outside of the text box. This is especially annoying when shaded text spans over multiple pages (see screenshot: AutoShading.png). It would be great if it could automatically clip and inset based on the text box—see screenshot: HowItShouldLook.png. The current solutions I can think of are really messy and easily negated.

  4. Option to List Fonts by Recently Activated

    I leave a lot of fonts open. Especially with CC fonts, I find I am activating fonts more and more to test them for a project, then I have to go to the font menu and look through it to find them. A great option would be to list the fonts in order of activation. That would save some time – and I know you have an "auto-activation" feature, but for some reason, I've never warmed to that. Thanks!

  5. Table of contents: control space between entry and number

    Add a feature to control the amount of space between the entry and number in a table of contents.

    At present, soft returns have to be added manually to prevent entry text coming too close to the number. This has to be redone every time the table of contents is updated. (Non-breaking spaces can be used in some instances but they do not always solve the problem.)

  6. Find/change return to where you started, like Word

    When you're done Find/Replace, InDesign leaves you at the last occurrence, and you have to navigate to where you started. In Word, most of the time the screen returns to where you started, saving you time. Any chance of adding this to InD?

  8. Show accented letters with alternate glyphs

    When finding a letter with an accent, currently you have to search the glyphs panel, maybe narrowing it down with the dropdown, or paste it in. What would be great would be if the accented versions of letters (e.g. è, é, ê, ë) showed underneath the alternate glyphs when a letter was selected. Even if it was only the major accents showed, this would save a lot of time. It would probably be best as an option that can be turned on or off.

  9. Improve Screen Display Quality - 4K Related

    I've recently upgraded to a 4K monitor. When working on InDesign documents, the type is not "sharp". I am running in the High Quality Display setting, the text and graphics are not sharp. If I run the display driver at 150% this problem exists, if I run at 100%, the type and graphics are very sharp - as expected. So this is a Windows related issue.

    Could the 150% magnification be ignored for the page display, but remain for the toolbars, etc.

    I have "old" eyes from too much time in front of these monitors!

    Thanks

  12. Phonetic guide

    Hello, please add an option for phonetic guides like in Word. This will help make textbooks and learning materials for languages that don't use the Latin script, such as Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Hindi, and so on. Thank you.

  13. on this page

    For cross-references, "See figure 12 on page 321" is sort of silly if that text APPEARS on page 321. Wouldn't it be nice to offer an option to have the cross-reference, if the figure's on the same page, say "See figure 12 on this page"?

  14. Allow full access to RTL & Asian language support in one edition of Creative Cloud!

    Let us use the Middle Eastern & Chinese/Japanese paragraph composers in ONE unified version of Creative Cloud! We live in a multilingual world! I typeset RTL and Asian languages every day of the year and CAN'T keep switching from one version of InDesign to another just to unlock the features that are already there, just not always accessable?! It's so incredibly annoying and gives the impression that Adobe are a company that have a monolingual world view in a multilingual world!

  15. Text frame option

    Text frame option is in Object Menu right now. If the Text frame option is in text related groups like "Window>types & table" that would be helpful. Since when vertical alignment of text is required, we have to go to object menu and text frame option. Grouping all text related features would be fine

  16. Support headlines in separate column (sideheads)

    It's a pretty common layout to have headline paragraphs in a separate column and their corresponding body paragraphs to the right. (See attached images for examples.) This layout is currently only supported by creating tables, but this isn't semantically correct for the content.

    It would be great if InDesign supported assigning paragraph styles to specific columns, e.g. H1 spans columns 1-3, H2 is column 1, body copy spans columns 2-3.

  17. Change Toggling Style Override Highlighter to Turn On/Off

    Toggling the style override highlighter is confusing if there isn't any override on the current page. Change the function from toggling to turning on or off.

  19. Option to Restart Number Lists by Default

    As it says on the tin, an option is needed to restart number lists by default. There shouldn't have to be an extra step to restart numbering for every single list and there shouldn't be any need for the convoluted workarounds that there are out there.

  20. Preference settings for a bulleted list

    Make a program or document preference setting for a manually formatted bulleted list. Now the hanging indent is always 6,35 mm and the bullet is always a dot.

    And yes - I know this can be done by a paragraph style ...
