  3. Deleting unused paragraph styles in one fell swoop

    I highly recommend that Adobe updates a feature to delete all unused paragraph styles in one fell swoop instead of a file by file case.

  4. Please can InDesign use true OpenType superscripts and subscripts if they are available in the font

    Please can InDesign use true OpenType superscripts and subscripts if they are available in the font, in the same way that it will use the true OpenType small caps.
    Or can there be a way in the paragraph styles to tell it to use them. (Not a character style as they are not necessarily tagged, they just pull through from Word or other manuscript source as superscript or subscript.)

  5. Indesign CS6 and prior one could easily make footnotes inline for multiple footnotes in a page. Now with the new Version it is gone.

    Indesign CS6 and prior one could easily make footnotes inline for multiple footnotes in a page. Now with the new Version it is gone. Please bring back the simplicity of the footnotes and try not to mess up what works. Now the forced and default spacing between the footnotes does not allow for inline Footnotes. Even Peter Karhel’s script does not work.

  6. Add Selected to Dictionary

    With the dictionary and spelling options the phenomena of names of places and companies , multi word names that include irregular spelling the idea of add selected text to dictionary should be available. This would let the software searching for spelling errors include the names as a part of the algorithm.

  7. Reintroduce Composite Fonts, Full East Asian Language Support in English (or any) UI

    It used to be a feature of InDesign, regardless of the UI language setting.
    (It still is for certain UIs, e.g. in the Japanese iD version)

    Please bring back this desperately needed feature.

  8. Change dictionary across paragraph styles

    I hope in a feature to change the dictionary across all/selected paragraph styles in a document with a single command. It should be a saving time feature.

  9. In Mojikumi Table, paragraph indent size to be fixed without depending on the first character

    InDesign Japanese Edition 15.0 or earlier
    At present, the indent size depends on the attribute of the first character, so when the character with a different size or scale comes first, the indent amount changes.
    Instead, I want the indent to be fixed based on the text size in the paragraph style or frame grid settings.
    The attached image is the current specification.

    P.S. If the first character of a paragraph has a decoration such as an underline, the decoration will also accompany the indentation. I think this is a bug.(additional.jpg)

  10. Highlight text to format into columns

    In Microsoft Word, you can highlight text and make into columns. That would be great for InDesign too, instead of multiple text frames. For instance, one text frame for a heading, another for two column text. If something changes, go back and repeat.

  11. Control paragraph rules when same styles

    I love being able to control space above/below in Paragraph for consecutive application of the same Paragraph Style.

    I would love to similarly apply a rule above only to the first paragraph in a sequence or a rule below only on the last paragraph in a sequence, with an interface on the Paragraph Rules pane of the Paragraph Style definition similar to the "Space between paragraphs using same style" field in the Indents and Spacing pane.

    This will greatly simplify and enhance my options in an automated XML workflow with multi-paragraph fields in a newspaper production setting.

  13. Keyboard Shortcut / Menu Command to Edit Text of Selected Frame

    There is currently no way to edit text in an already-selected frame other than using the mouse to enter the frame. As everyone knows, mousing is less efficient than using keyboard shortcuts.

    Please add a menu command and a keyboard shortcut to edit text of the selected frame.

    The most logical thing to do would probably be to use ESC. ESC is already the keyboard shortcut to switch from text selection to editing. It should just be the toggle.

    (This might prompt the question: where should the cursor be placed? I would say just place it at the beginning of…

  14. Highlight show rags from multiple text boxes ( almost like a smart guide for rags)

    A live view feature that shows the edges of rags so you can optically adjust with all rags in view into consideration - instead of dragging multiple ruler guides or whatever.

    Saves time and provides tighter control of text and layout

    Thanks

  15. Show only Font familys in Font preview

    Since the latest layout change the font searchbar improved, BUT it takes way longer to actually find a font, becouse every Version of the font is displayed, instead of the whole Family (so Arial Bold, Arial Medium etc... instead of Arial, Futura, etc). This is especially confusing, when working with similar named font familys or diffenrt varants of familys. I would suggest a option in the preferences of all Adobe programs to change etween family preview and single style preview, with the first set as default.

  16. Make the systemfonts invisible.

    As a graphic designer I use a font management system. Unfortunately it is not (anymore) possible to delete the endless list of unnecessary fonts at MacOs Catalina. When using the Adobe programs (Indesign, Photoshop, Illustrator), the terribly long list of (unnecessary) fonts now appears. In this list, I have to find my activated letter fonts. Very annoying!

    Is it really not possible to remove or hide that list of Mac fonts?

  17. Shading and Underline conflict

    Some underline strokes become invisible when Paragraph Shading is applied.
    If removed shading then strokes appear.
    That's a bug, shading always must go bottom.
    Two screenshots are from Indesign, with and without paragraph shading. The last screenshot is from Acrobat, i've deleted manually gray frames to reveal the hidden strokes.

  18. Get Reliable Outlook Support for Changing the Password
