  1. Text wrapping around image should honor Corner Options

    See this forum thread for details: https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign/wrapping-text-around-a-graphics-frame-with-corner-options/m-p/11776379

    There are two issues - a feature request and what I think is actually a bug (related to the workaround for the lacking feature).

    The primary question I asked in the forum feels like a bug to me, but I'm told it should be considered a feature request. So I request that in terms of text wrap, graphics frames generated by placing an image would behave the same as graphics frames created by the frame tool. If an image is placed and then Corner Options are applied, text wrap set to Graphics Frame…

  4. Indesign AI-/Sensei based image scaler

    An AI/Sensei based image-scaler. Let's say you're designing a lot of different document sizes, and have a option in InDesign to upscale image sizes to make sure, that the output dpi / document intent is met.

  5. Ability to copy link name only from links panel, as additional option to 'copy platform style path' 'full user path' etc.

    I often copy links from one spread to another document and then need to search for the link on a a media archive for a client. It would be really helpful to be able to just copy the link name alone, through right clicking the link in the links panel (even better, without extension!) for searching purposes. This would also be helpful when searching your machine or a server for a missing link.

    The only time I use this function is when searching elsewhere for an image / link, and therefore need to use one of the existing options, and…

  6. The Color Tab in the Find/Change dialog box

    About the new feature in the Find/Change dialog box, under the Color Tab.
    It gives us the choice of finding a color and changing it to another color.

    But I've got an instance today where I wanted to change the Text that was Red to Bold & Italics.

    There is no option in that dialog box to change a color to a Character Style or a Paragraph Style. I had to find the Red text and then change it manually to a Character Style.

    I sincerely think that there should be such option.

  7. ADD Large Format sizing, as you do with Illustrator

    My idea is as simple as just being able to produce layout sizes bigger than current 216 inch limit, for being able to layout billboards, wall graphics, etc.

    The link feature and linked art boxes are able to move and crop graphics much more fluid, and also, typesetting in InDesign much more powerful than Illustrator. It's simply faster to produce a mock-up and final art in Indesign and it's easier to make corrections as well.

  9. Content Aware Bleed

    Many files I receive have images placed cropped to the border of pages and when the box is expanded there is no more image there. I would like a function that knows the bleed area, enlarges the image box, and fills in the appropriate image bleed data. This would be similar to the Crop tool in Photoshop with content aware checked on. Perhaps this could be done on an additional layer on top of the current image.

  10. Add a feature like Figma’s Smart Selection rearrange

    When creating catalogs or similar things, it would be great to be able to select multiple items and be able to quickly and automatically switch the order of the groups similar to Figma’s Smart Selection

  11. objects selected upon unhide just like illustrator

    In Illustrator and InDesign I am able to hide objects in the doc. In Illustrator when I "unhide" all of those objects they show up and are then selected. In InDesign when I "unhide" they merely show up, but are not selected. I don't know if I'm unique in the way I use this feature, but it is very handy to "hide" everything I want to select and then "unhide" to then have the selection. It is useful because with objects that overlap, it can be very cumbersome to find a way to select a bunch of things

  12. I wish Cross References could be used as "callout" text.

    I would like to be able to use a sentence inside a paragraph as a callout para so if the sentence is changed inside the paragraph the callout will change. You can do this only if you use the first sentence in the paragraph as the cross reference.

  14. SELECT + RELINK of Single Image File in MULTIPLE INSTANCES based on a DEFINED SELECTION of Multiple Links in LINK PANEL!

    You can Relink an Image File in the LINKS PANEL in

    (A) ALL INSTANCES
    (B) 1 (ONE) INSTANCE

    But not MULTIPLE INSTANCES based on a DEFINED SELECTION of Multiple Links. To do so presently requires the NEEDLESS REPETITION of Re-Linking for each instance at great time and expense!

    I am sure this is an IMPORTANT NEED for many users workflows.

    Please add this feature ASAP!!! Urgent need for us and I am quite sure many many others!

  16. zoom the index

    I heavily use the Index tool which usually takes very long working hours, and find it increasinlgy damaging for my eyesight to stare at those tiny chacacters and boxes. I would find it very usefull if the dialogue box and its content could be expanded or zoomed, as the rest of workspace.
    It would also be usefull if the text boxes could be bigger, so as to be able to see long iong index entries more easily. Thanks!

  17. Alt-text inside Links Panel

    Can we have a column added to the Links Panel that lists the alt-text of the image so I can open/edit it from the links panel rather than finding it inside my document?

  18. I need a way to relink images across all open documents.

    When I go to relink an image that is now in a different folder, and that image is inside of 7 different files, I'd like to be able to tell one file where the image is, and the other ones can also use that same image, with some kind of toggle to disable that if for some reason I didn't want all the images to use it.

  19. truly floating frames such as are available in FrameMaker

    FrameMaker has a fabulous option for anchored frames that allows it to truly "float" in the sense that if the text flow causes the anchor to be too close to the bottom of the page, the floating frame will appear on the following page.
    With InDesign the frame will stay on the same page, appear at least partially above the anchor, in which case the text-wrap doesn't get applied so an image inside the frame would for example cover part of the text.
    So I would request to implement FrameMaker's version of floating frames!
