  2. Ability to "replace" INDT files in CC Libraries

    We have a large number of template files in a series of CC Libraries. Right now, if I make an edit that affects multiple template files in multiple libraries, it can be a long, annoying process to get the new versions into the libraries. I have descriptions written for all of the templates. To replace that template, I have to import the new one, copy the description, paste the description into the new template file, then delete the old template. If we have a brand change or other change (like, "hey, it's 2021 now, not 2020"), replacing all the templates…

  3. Allow online document checking for all documents at the discretion of the user

    Often a document gets 'slightly' corrupted. It still works, but you will get warnings about errors that cannot be solved (out of date cross references for instance) and InDesign crashes on a regular basis. But InDesign itself doesn't recognise the document as problematic. It would be nice to send such a document to Adobe's servers for a repair.

  4. Refresh Adobe Fonts button

    I added 5 styles of Adobe Garamond fonts at fonts.adobe.com and went back to Indesign. They weren't showing up yet so I closed Indesign and then reopened it and they weren't there. I searched help and Google and couldn't find a solution so I contacted Adobe customer support. The Adobe agent suggested the following:

    "Please close Indesign and open fonts.adobe.com and then deactivate those 5 fonts and sign out from there. Sign in again and active those fonts and then open Indesign and check."

    By that time the fonts had refreshed in Indesign so I didn't need to do this.

  5. cc libraries - when making changes to cc library items, have an option to update all linked files

    When making changes to cc library items, have an option to update all linked files that were already placed within the open document.

  6. Review Online: Changes on comments

    When you change text that has been highlighted it jumps down to Unresolved. I constantly have to find my way back to the comment section I was on. Very annoying.

    Also, if I hit command-V when i have text in comment highlighted it suddenly changes the filter to just "Resolved"

  7. CC Library Paste in Place option

    When using CC libraries, it would be very useful to be able to 'paste in place' an element into the layout. For magazine design I have many elements that I need to be able to paste in the location on the page, gutter photo credits, folios, etc. This was an option in a regular library but not in CC.

  8. Store GREP strings in Library

    I often have to use the same long GREP strings in multiple documents and for multiple projects (eg. custom targeting of words and/or characters at the end of a paragraph to avoid orphans). Depending on the context, it can get complicated. I currently have a spreadsheet so I don't have to reformulate every time I need one, but I would like to store them as easily as character or paragraph styles so I can reference them again and again.

  9. Place .aic and .psdc files

    As work flows are continuing to become more and more cloud based with the new photoshop and illustrators, the natural step would be to allow us to place .aic and .psdc files into an InDesign file. These items will be invaluable as we build for future users.

  10. Placing Cloud Documets

    Placing Cloud Documents in InDesign would vastly improve and simplify the workflow of a project started in apps such as Photoshop, Fresco, or Illustrator on iPad Pro. This would allow editing the files placed in the InDesign file without the need to export the Cloud Documents to a compatible often uneditable file format.

  11. Please add InDesign as a supported Creative Cloud file type

    I was very excited to learn more about CC files and libraries during Max. I wanted to start implementing CC files to take advantage of versions and file sharing. It's very disappointing to learn that InDesign isn't currently a program that's supported for CC file saving. Please add it.

  12. Search Adobe Fonts

    Next to the search bar for Adobe Stock would be a nice place to search for fonts as well. Just my opinion.

  13. add pages to cc library

    my team works on multiple sales decks that use a lot of the same pages. It would be amazing to be able to pull a full page into the cc library so the team would easily be able to compile a new deck from pulling new pages out of a single library

  14. View multiple CC Libraries at the same time in InDesign

    It would be very helpful to be able to view more than 1 CC Library panel at a time within the InDesign workspace. For instance, my company has a library for our brand elements (colors, fonts, logos, etc) and then multiple other libraries for various uses. I'd like to be able to have at least 2 open simultaneously rather than switching back and forth.

  15. Import/export Share for Review comments

    The new Share for Review feature is great. I've noticed though that once the file is moved, the comments are lost or no longer linked to the copy of the file. I have also seen that only one person has access to comments (although I have not tested this). This does not seem useful when you think about the workflow of an ad agency, where files are usually started by one person (say an art director), then passed along and finished by others (like a designer or studio artist). If comments can't be passed along with the document, it disrupts…

  17. Allow individuals to print or save PDF from Share For Review link

    Currently you are unable to accurately print a document shared for review directly from InDesign in the cloud service. There should be a toggle to enable the option to do so from the individual sharing the file. Many people like to physically markup documents in addition to their digital comments.

  18. CC Libreries

    Sería estupendo contar con un sector de búsqueda por texto dentro de la ventana CC LIbraries para archivos y elementos subidos. Cuando guardo archivos le pongo un nombre por ejemplo: Logotipo de piscina 01. Entonces, me es más práctico buscar por nombre ya que la ventana tiene miniaturas demasiado pequeñas.


    It would be great to have a search placeholder within the CC Libraries window for files and uploaded items. When I save files I give it a name, for example: Pool logo 01. So, it is more practical for me to search by name because CC librarines has small
    thumbnails

  20. Single Page Send for Review

    Very excited for the Send for Review feature. We've been using Acrobat to do this, so having it baked into is a game changer. Is there a way to review the document as single pages instead of spreads? It helps our writers and copy editors read easier with single pages. Thank you for your help!
