  1. quad center

    Quad centre
    E.g.
    left aligned text centre aligned text right aligned text

    Presently, you can do:
    left aligned text right aligned text
    but not centered text in the middle

    There are various work-arounds to do this now but all are clumsy.
    WordPerfect has done this for at least 35 years.

  2. Reset option for object shift in flow text

    When placing an object in flow text, for instance a small image, the object can be shifted up and down with the mouse pointer to adjust its position in relation to the text. That position is nothing that has a corresponding value in any toolbar so it can't be reset. Would be nice to have a reset button for it or use the text shift up/down value also for objects.

  3. We need much more comprehensive word/character counts functionality

    We need much better support for word counts than simply selecting some text or an active story and getting feedback on it through the info panel.

    As others suggest, we need support for Books, entire documents, I want to know how many words are in tables, footnotes, how many words are duplicated from master pages, give me a breakdown of words by style/font/colour so that I can use these parameters to easily subtract them from a count.

    Pretty much like Illustrator when nothing is selected can give you a breakdown of information document wide, and then specifics when you select…

  4. Option to set Paragraph border align to text frame edge

    In the paragraph border options we can set the top edge, bottom edge and width to text based parameters but it would be useful to be able to set these to align to the text frame edge.

    Especially useful when running multiple text frames up against one another in a loosely tabular format but when you don't actually want to be bound by the restrictions of a table.

  5. A way to extract font and text styling from an image

    There should be way to capture styling information from an image. It will be helpful to find out and use the font and other kind of text styling used in an image.
    This way I'll be able to save information from an inspirational image for later use in my design.

  7. Adding one additional tool to the tools panel to delete the object

    I am working with lot of icons and queries. While doing correction there are many objects should get delete, For that clicking every object and pressing delete button in keyboard takes more time. Instead if it is one dedicated tool is there so that I can click that tool when tool touches the object it delete the object without pressing delete button in keyboard. This option should work well even with anchored objects.

  8. Justify: Text Automatically Resizes

    Especially for headlines, I often will manually resize whole lines of text to fill the same width. I use this technique so much that I'd like an option to do it automatically.

    This feature is actually offered on Instagram stories, albeit imperfectly (I've attached a screenshot). You can adjust the line breaks by changing the text size or adding the breaks manually.

  9. Need to add a Haitian Creole dictionary to InDesign

    Hello all;

    At HistoryMiami Museum, we produce a lot of material in the three most spoken languages in our community, English, Spanish and Haitian Creole, following the Miami-Dade County government best practices. InDesign has already incorporated dictionaries in English and Spanish. We are looking for a comprehensive Haitian Creole dictionary to add to InDesign, for spellcheck purposes. We would appreciate any help with this matter. Thank you.

  11. Table of Contents - Limit to subject lines to Character Style, option

    Currently, the TOC will display an entire paragraph of text based on the Paragraph Style. I've assigned a unique Character style to give distinction to the first two sentences of the paragraph using Nested Styles within the Paragraph Style.

    In the attached example, you'll see that "Subject 1. Setup." has a distinct Character style, this is the only text that I want to appear in the TOC. Perhaps there's a way to accomplish this. But It would be nice to have the option to populate text based on Character Style only.

  12. Add an option to hide Text via caracter format setting

    Add a checkbox to the character format settings that allows users to hide text. In some situations it is very useful to use grep rules to hide certain text elements. Until now, the color of the font had to be removed and had to set the size to 0.1.

  13. Add a feature to the paragraph shading or the underlining where you can set the angle. For italic Fonts.

    Would be a big relief if you could set an angle in the paragraph shading or the underlining. With this it would be possible to underline an italic Font individually and correctly.
    Right now im forced to create a transformed rectangle under the italic Font to underline or highlight it with its angle. I cant do it with underlinings or shadowing for italic Fonts..

  14. A LIVE word count for booklet files.

    Please add a live word count feature for booklet files. I have had to spend a long time copying and pasting to Word to get a total word count for my entire document.

    It would be brilliant if there was a live word count at the bottom next to the errors (or simply in the info window) which updates as you type.

    While I'm at it, a live spell check would be helpful too.

    Thank you.

  16. Kurdish Language Spelling

    Hello!
    Adobe InDesign has many users writing in and experiencing the Central Kurdish language. People who use this language make up a significant portion of Iraq’s population, which is in the Kurdistan region. Unfortunately, the Kurdish language dictionary isn’t available in InDesign.
    I hope you can allow InDesign to add the Kurdish language dictionary as an option for users who are writing in this language.
    Or, if you could create a translation web page to add the Kurdish language phrase and sentence spellings in Adobe InDesign and other Adobe products, that would be most appreciated.
    Thank you.

  17. Problem: Text frames suddenly become empty

    When working on a +400 pages book, and when I'm in the middle of simple text editing (most of the time; any editing that causes an increase or decrease in lines), suddenly one text frame (other than the one I'm working on) become empty, and all text will move to the next text frame. To solve it I have to edit some text; like adding a paragraph then deleting it. And another fix is by resizing the text frame!!
    My version is 2020 last update. Book is in Arabic.
    Cannot understand why that is randomly happening!

  19. Use Nearest Available Font Weight Instead of "Unavailable" Error

    When switching fonts, instead of generating an "unavailable font" error when a font weight doesn't exist, automatically use the closest available weight based on the previous setting.
    For example, when switching from a font that has Black to a font that only has Bold or Regular, simply use the closest available weight e.g. Bold, rather than generating the "unavailable" error.

  20. French dictionaries

    The Académie française updated spellings in French in 1990, and textbooks in France are now teaching the new versions. But InDesign does not inherently support the new spellings. The only way to activate them is by drilling down into the files and adding Hunspell manually. ID does support much more recent German reforms, though. After 29 years (which is literally older than ID itself!), it's time for Adobe to support this.
