  1. Font size menu bars

    I would like to be able to increase the font size for menu bars, tools and mouse-over hints. It would be a great improvement in terms of accessibility.

  2. Update links in the background

    Links should be updated in the background. It is always annoying when you have to wait for an image to load (possibly off a server) and you have to wait for it. Maybe the frame to update should just be locked until updated but not the whole document.

  4. QR code for EPC/Sepa cannot be generated in indesign

    I do not understand why, but plain text qr codes for EPC/Sepa are not correct when generated in indesign. They cannot be scanned from the bank apps.

  5. Trasuzione italiano InDesign

    Nella versione italiana di InDesign, nella sezione Capilettera e stili nidificati della funzione Stili di paragrafo, si legge "compresa" e "fino a". Questa non è una traduzione molto chiara, sarebbe molto più chiaro che ci fosse scritto "fino a (incluso)" e "fino a (escluso)".

  6. Smart Layer Placement

    Allow the designer to choose what kind of element belongs on the layer so that when assets are brought into the document they are automatically placed within the appropriate layer. For example, if the designer sets a layer to "Photography" then all raster-based imagery is automatically placed on that layer.

    Other layer categories could be Type, Vector Art, Shapes (and by that I mean InDesign shapes), and more. Of course, once placed, the designer could then move elements to other layers as needed.

    Additionally, if the document has already been created and elements have already been placed, then there could…

  7. link objects, like link layers in photoshop

    in photoshop, we can "link" the layers to select and edit linked layers at the same time while maintaining the order of the layers.
    (https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/selecting-grouping-linking-layers.html)
    When creating images such as attachments, I can't group them(paperclip) because I'm afraid the order will change. link feature such as photoshop(link layers) will be very useful in this situation..

  9. "Revert" function needs an "undo revert"

    "Revert" function needs an "undo revert" in case of accidental "revert." Perhaps the Revert would open up the file in memory as a new document with the Text added to the file name '(reverted)'

    For example: MyFilename (reverted).indd

  10. group images by page

    we would like to have the option to show links or images grouped by page because we have some time same images in 60 pages and we then want to replace them only on specif pages. so instead of doing it one image at a time, we could then just replace the images based on pages.

  11. snapping

    I would like for InDesign to snap my objects to the grids and margins I made instead of to random spots right next to it, as seen in the image I attached. I work in a document for print, so it is not snapping to pixels or whatever.

    It snaps to random stuff and every **** textbox or image is a ton of work. When making magazines at high speed this really slows me down so much that I want to look into other software to do the job as Adobe is clearly nog the right partner to do this.

  12. Be able to access loaded place cursor.

    When you place multiple images they are in the loaded place cursor until you place all of them. If you do not place all of them it is not possible to get back to the loaded cursor with the rest of the images.

    Being able to access the loaded place cursor with remaining images either through a shortcut or interface would be great.

  15. Always open a image file on Photoshop

    The request is pretty clear in the title. How nice it would be to double-click, with option button hold down, over an image and open it in Photoshop instead of Preview even if the default image application is set to preview.

  18. Option to customize the angle of the stroke cap

    It would be nice if we can determine the angle of the stroke cap instead of the default 90°, a simple option that would let you customize it to make sharp caps. I've made a simulation using forms to illustrate what I meant. A nice workaround that you should implement is the basic “outline stroke” feature that exists on Illustrator.

  19. Edit ALL gaps in a selection.

    It would be super helpful if you could edit ALL the gaps in a selection of objects with the gap tool, so matter the layout. See attached example of boxes – would be amazing is you could select and edit all gaps with the gap tool, perhaps with a new keyboard shortcut? That is all, thanks in advance! Anders
