  1. Why haven't we got Hide Edges/Hide Bounding Box like Illustrator?

    very useful for alignment, just better on the eye, without boxes and lines all over the show. Why is my Control panel shortcut/menu command intermitant?

  4. Distribute Width

    I have two frames side by side, but this is relevant to not just frames. I would like to distribute the widths of these two so that they are both equal width but the total combined width is still the same, and they stay positioned as they are. I thought this would be in the align tools but I have tried many different combinations and cannot achieve this. I have used distribute widths in other programs (MS Word) and it saves so much time not having to manually calculate the widths every time and is of course less error prone.…

  5. Return the ability to place text on top of a photo in InDesign

    I've done all the current Adobe CC upgrades (InDesign, Photoshop Illustrator), and Mac OS Catalina, and suddenly I can't place text on top of a photo while working in an InDesign document. It used to be no problem!

  6. The footnote in journal layout

    Please add the ability to make the text of the footnote in a separate frame, that would be able to use footnotes in a complex, journal layout. Often there are situations when some text frames, each one has footnotes and the text of these footnotes were at the bottom of the page, separately, and the numbering in turn.

  8. User Interface Ideas for newbies

    hello
    I think a good change for newer users is to make it to where the user interface is more user-friendly. I don't mean the whole app I just mean certain things. For example, one thing would be, is to make the options panels easier to stick. I didn't know that you had to drag the box to one side of the screen to get it to stick to the app. It took me the whole day to figure this out, otherwise, when you move the InDesign app to another screen those panels get left behind. So either have a…

  9. Relink already placed images with new images

    When I tried to relink an already placed JPG in my InDesign CC 2019 file with a larger version of the same graphic with another file name, the Links panel showed the new file name and the new graphic size, but the placed image in my InDesign file remained the same.

    For example, the original graphic was 1" wide and the new graphic was 3" wide. When I relinked the 1" graphic to the 3" graphic file, the image in my InDesign file still showed the graphic as 1" wide even though the Link Info showed the new file name…

  10. Make smart guides active within grouped objects.

    When triple clicking on grouped objects, adjusting an object doesn't snap to the smart edges of other objects in the group.

  12. Pressure Sensitive Brush Pen (Vector brush to use with pressure sensitive pens)

    Many professional artists use some sort of pressure sensitive pen like Wacom (Cintiq) or the much cheaper and equally good HUION tablets).

    InDesign has a vector pen tool, with which professionals can write, scribble, design and create personalised unique graphic images, with a freedom that no other text/font ever can proviude. But this vector pen tool does NOT support pressure sensitivity.

    Enabling pressure sensitivity (think of it as a simplified Brush Pen tool of illustrator) will allos professionals to directly in our most beloved favorite design program!

  13. Defining areas and automating rotation of those areas.

    I publish a paper that has content down the middle and 16- 2x3 ads in frames on the sides.(8 ads on left and 8 on right). Same goes for the opposite side of the paper. I rotate the ads each week so my clients get exposure all over the paper. I publish in several areas so I am manually rotating these ads each week and it takes a lot of time. It would be a HUGE time saver if I could automate this function based on my preset parameters. At the click of a button the ads all move to…

  14. Get back to home screen similar to Illustrator and Photoshop

    I like having documents open and being able to go back to the home screen for illustrator and photoshop to visualize the thumbnails of the most recent documents. Please add that feature to inDesign.

  15. Disable paragraph border end rule across columns in InDesign

    We have option to merge paragraph border for set of paragraphs in InDesign. This results in enabling top and bottom rule for 1st and last consecutive paragraphs only.

    In this case, when a paragraph breaks into next column, then bottom rule will not enable for 1st column(screenshot 1). But if whole paragraph goes into next column, the bottom rule enables for 1st column (Screenshot 2).

    Expectation: But our client has requested to disable the bottom rule in 1st column regardless of how the paragraph breaks.

    Screenshot 1:

    Screenshot 2:

  16. Convert placed ai to outlines

    We get a lot of files with placed .ai art/logos with various color modes/values. It would be great if there was an option (similar to converting text to outlines but for vector art) that would make them editable (as if they'd been copy/pasting from ai, no longer linked) right within indd.

    If there is a way/script to do this already, I'd appreciate any info/links for it.

    Thanks!

  18. Please, please add the average horizontal/vertical line between to points to Indesign like Illlustrator has.

    being able to make a straight line between two points is so essential. this would make Indesign so much more user friendly.

  19. Edit Description in Links Panel

    It would be great to have a the ability to edit the "Description" column directly in the links panel instead of having to click on every object and then "Object Export Options." Would save sooooo much time to be able to edit the alt text right from the links panel.
