  2. Last Sentence Nested Style Option

    Add an option that will allow you to set up nested text at the end of a paragraph in addition to the beginning of paragraphs. Our magazine bolds the last sentences in one of columns and this would be a big time saver.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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

  9. Get Reliable Outlook Support for Changing the Password

    If you suspect your Outlook account is at risk because someone is trying to get the personal information of yours without even informing you or taking permission from you, then immediately change the password. Take effective assistance by contacting Outlook Support team with the help of provided helpline number. At this point, I think money and time is not priority for anybody else, the main motto of those helpless customers should be keep the data and account safe and protected at any cost. That’s why, we suggest you to put a single call on helpline number and get handy solution…

  10. Change spellcheck from one language to another within the same document

    The Indesign support team was not able to change the dictionary language within a document and suggested that I wrote to the developer engineers for a change.
    They tried different workarounds; Right click the misspelled word and change the language in the dialogue box. Did not apply. Changing the preferences. Did not apply either. Changing the language preferences in Creative Cloud. Did not work that one.
    I guess this is actually a bug.

  11. Autotext

    Je souhaite utiliser une application qui permet d'écrire automatiquement un texte à partir d'un mot clé, seulement lorsque j'écrit le mot clé dans une zone de texte il est bien identifié par l'application (Autotext) mais ensuite au lieu d'être remplacé par la phrase correspondante, il est seulement effacé et pas remplacé ?
    J'ai relevé que cela ne fonctionne pas dans indesign, photoshop, illustrator mais fonctionne dans une note acrobat ou d'autres logiciels non adobe.
    Savez vous de quoi cela viendrait et comment le corriger ?
    Merci !

  12. Larger Windows for Find & Replace

    Support for larger windows in "Find & Replace." The ability to paste big blocks of copy would be a great option. I had a project where I was making multiple identical pages with variable names and years. Then we had edits that were needed on all of the pages. If I could easily navigate within larger "Find & Replace" windows, I could've made those changes in half the time. Instead, I went just before and after each needed change and fixed each edit individually.

  14. a better way to make texts on circle or other form path (spline) for pictogrammes

    when you have to do it but make a way to have it the most editable way because you have to make it to a lot of different languages. Maybe be a more efficient way with rules on path to automatically inverse it and center it on the center of the path and maybe an option to what part of the text is on one side and what part is on another actually if i do it correctly you often need two path one for top one for bottom part of circular text and when you whant to change one…

  15. Underline options > color should be TEXT COLOR by default!!

    I have to import Word files in InDesign many times and the text looks black but it's not. I try to select the whole paragraph and change it to black but the underlines remain RGB! So I have to select each one to change it to TEXT COLOR. Why can't it be text color by default...or be selected with the whole paragraph and be changed together with the text??

  19. Global baseline shift

    In version 14.0.2, we may select any character(s) in a single line adjusting baseline shift variously for each selection of characters. Having made specific baseline shifts, it would be nice to select the desired text and while preserving their relative differing baseline shifts to then globally raise and/or lower the entire line.

    Currently, we are not able to do this. The attached shows that if I select the differing baseline shifted characters, InDesign's UI baseline shift incrementer becomes unavailable. I can globally reset the entire line imposing a single shared baseline value via text input, but this does not respect…

  20. Move objects to a different layer through F/C dialog

    Would be nice if F/C dialog allowed moving text (and so forth text frames) to a specific layer. Actually this is only feasible per script. User could deport specific text frames to a specific layer in a easy way.
