  1. make fonts go back to having bold and italic versions

    (rather than 'heavy' and 'regular italic' or 'oblique' etc) so that we can use shortcuts to apply them

  2. Make OpenType SVG composed glyphs unbreakable

    For now combined glyphs can be accidentally broken if they reach end of line.

    For example, I add composed glyph 0x261d + 0x1f3fe (☝🏾) It is up pointing hand with skin tone modifier.

    Applied EmojiOne font.

    Now i start added dots before is (.........). When glyph reach end of text field, he will be PARTIALLY moved to next line. This moment it will be broken.

    I understand why it happens, but this is unexpected behavior.

    I think there should be an option in paragraph or character style, that makes glyphs unbreakable.

  4. Make it one-click to disable USA English across all documents, existing and yet to be created.

    Every new document I create defaults to USA English which is time-consuming to change for everyone who does not use this variation of UK English. Please make it a button on the 'New document' window to select default language, and please make it a tick-box in preferences. It could be worded like this for example 'What is your preferred default language?" and then a drop down. Then every document I open will automatically have the correct dictionary applied without any further time spent. Many thanks.

  5. Stop underlining words after dot.

    Indesign underlines after the dot the words that begin with small letter. This is wrong in the case of abbreviations. Indesign should either recognize the abbreviation either there must be a way to signal the correctness of the word that begins with small cap.
    Example: typing the text " bla bla ex. blah" will result in underlined 'blah'.

  6. option boxes with sizes need different default behavior

    for all boxes where you can edit a size, please make the default behavior that when you click in the box to edit the size it selects everything. that way you can just click on the box and put in the new number. If for example a text size is 10px, please when I select the box, select everything so that I can just type in 14 to make the size bigger. If I type in 14, you should just keep it in pixels. Or if I type in 14pts, change it to points. Editing sizes right now is annoying…

  7. Text Hotkey window tool

    A windowed tool that allows you to assign "Hot keys" to font styles where you could quickly edit text on the fly. The text hot key tool would have an activated switch so when its on, it applies your hot keys and when its off everything goes back to normal. This would mostly be used for references where authors names are italicized, body copy is regular and numbers are bold. I know it is similar to the eye dropper tool except you would be able to edit all at once rather than have to go back to each style. The…

  8. No scroll options in Font menu

    Please, add a scroll bar and/or scroll wheel/page down/page up options and maybe start typing font name desired to functionality in the font menu in InDesign CC PC versions! Painful at best without these options.

  9. type measurement units

    I choose inches for my units. It used to be, that even when I did this, type units were always in points... specifically space before and space after paragraphs. Now, they display in inches. I know I can type in "p8" and it will convert... but I need to SEE it in points, rather than having to change my units every time I need to see this. I thought that previous versions also had, in preferences, units specifically for Type. I would like this feature back.

  11. Fix endnote placement options to include placement immediately following chapter text.

    I have yet to see a book with chapter endnotes that had notes starting on a new page rather than immediately after the chapter text. It isn't possible, though, in InDesign, to select this as an option. Can this be addressed?

  12. Spellchecking and hyphenation anno 2019

    The current spell checker is helpful, but also limited. The error detection rate is too low. Hyphenation error also occurs too often. (Both esp. in german language.) Artificial intelligence that maps the complete official dictionaries and spelling rules of each language should be added to the agenda and implemented. User dictionaries should only record WORDSAMENTS that contain words that are not in the official dictionary. Word forms and compound words should be derived from the rules.

  14. horizontal alignment of text inside of text frame

    Previously InDesign had HORIZONTAL alignment of text inside the text frame. You could align text at the top, bottom and centre of the text frame. It was one of the best features of InDesign, and it seems to be stripped off. :(
    Unless it's still there somewhere, thoroughly hidden away. But why?!

  16. Find font should allow the use of character styles

    When I import a Word file and preserve local formatting some text comes through as an unrecognized font because the local style applied to the text does not match the style available in the family.

    For example there is some text that is Calibi Italic. My body copy uses Frutiger LT Std and the italic version is Frutiger LT Std 56 Italic. InDesign has styles the text as Frutiger LT Std Italic, so it is pink and uses the wrong font.

    Find/Change does not allow me to search for a style that does not exist. I cannot search for Frutiger…

  17. Font tool and Character panel lockup

    When selecting a font from the character panel or selecting text from a document after opening the file InDesign locks up. It happens without fail since the update and the lockup time range from a minute to going on 5 minutes plus (finally just restart the app).
