  1. Smaller CC Packages please

    Why do I have to include loads of programs I don't need if I upgrade to CC? It's bad enough making us pay this expensive subscription but as a graphic designer I only use InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator and Acrobat Pro. Can't you fashion more selective packages? I'm holding out with CS6 but having been coerced by Apple into upgrading to High Sierra it's all looking wobbly. Adobe are the vanguard of the Tyranny Of Upgrade.

  3. ownership of libraries to the team and global changes

    Libraries; Now at the center of every well organized team... but when a team member leaves, every «owned» libraries are deleted... so all the standardized color swatch of a client are gone for the remaining members... PLUS would be great to have a chart of 30 clients and add/remove one new/old user to those 30 libraries at once ! libraries are great; adobe please make them greater :)

  4. Integration of Behance with InDesign

    Unlike Illustrator, where it's relatively easy to copy and paste reference images, I find it difficult to refer back to my references. Although all applications throughout the Adobe CC could really use this feature, I especially would like for it to be considered with InDesign.

    I would like to highlight/sort certain artwork on Behance that I can then view in the "CC Libraries" tab. This would allow me to quickly view and refer back to my inspirations. I really think this is a missed opportunity, since Adobe has already acquired Behance and shows little-no interest of connecting it with applications.

  5. More stability with the CC account connection

    INDD is most of the time unable to convert recent documents to an old version. Everything is connected, CC is active, but conversion fails.

    Same with libraries. INDD is connected, but libraries are not available (disconnected of CC).

    The only solution is to reboot the system, I can't spend my working time to reboot computers.

  6. CC Libraries and data merge

    Please enable @datafields to work with asset names in CC libraries or at least open up the CC Libraries to scripting the way normal Libraries are. I have client assets spread over several libraries and the ability to add them programatically on/after a datamerge in some way would be invaluable.

  7. asset managers for images

    Have an option to directly import from desktop to CC libraries images (jpg, etc.) to have them ready available to insert into the document. As well have an oversight of which images/graphic have been already used in the document.

    This would facilitate creation of photo-books, catalogues, encyclopaedias, etc. Any sort of document where certain assets are to be used, especially when multiple similar assets are available and they have to be chosen according to the rest of the layout

  9. Share the templates (INDT) into the library

    Dear all we already use a lot the library as we are a team of 6 designers working on the same bases. We already use swatches and images which is very convenient. It would be good to have the templates (rollup, A4 , webbanner ...) in the library as template the way we can just drag and drop them

    thank you by advance. InDesign is a wonderful tool

  10. CC Library Issues

    In our pre-press workflow we package jobs for archiving which includes pulling copies of files down from CC libraries. It would seem that each new library names files sequentially 'Artwork 01, Artwork 02' etc. A significant problem arises when you need to use jobs from multiple sources to create something like a folio. You then have multiple copies of - say - Artwork 01 which the software then rename Artwork 01-1, etc. Best would be if filenames could either be determined or are sourced from the filename when elements are added.

  11. Add "Creative Cloud Files" Tab to "New Document" Window

    Create a TAB for "CC Files" within the "New Document" window.

    When you open InDesign you can select to open a file from CC Files. I have a lot of saved templates so this is a great feature.

    However — once I have a file already open, I cannot easily load another template from my CC Files, unless I hunt it down in finder. This would save me a lot of time if I could load them from the New Doc window

    GENIOUS.

    Thanks

    We need to import gradients to CC libraries in InDesign as well to provide more detailed design-guideline components for our brands. Will there be a possibility soon? Kind regards:)

  15. Catalogue Indesign

    Hi,

    I am dealing with a job where I have to create a catalogue in InDesign, and then convert to a website where the user can browse the catalogue images - and select their favourite images (like a wishlist.)

    What is the easiest way to do this? Surely there is a platform which serves as a master image library which will automatically sync with my Indesign file and Dreamweaver?

    Suggestions welcome :)

  17. Have a 2 program package for CC

    Right now Adobe has an option to have Lightroom and Photoshop in a special photo CC package for $10. How about making it where you can choose any two programs? I don't need those two but I would easily upgrade may aging CS6 Indesign for a package like that.

  18. Update linked text from CC Libraries without effecting styles

    Please add an opinion to "Place Linked" text without effecting the style after an edit to the text. Imagine the text in the CC Libraries is the master. This master text could be placed in many documents with different styles. Let say your company has a tagline. The tagline could be a different font size in each document. This way you could keep a master product description and place it in many documents with different styles.

    Thank You

    Closed: Fixed  ·  Anonymous responded

    I understand the confusion and apologise for the same. Before we could get out the issues in a release we posted the workaround plugins for any users who were blocked due to the bugs.

    We have now send out an update to all InDesign users which has those bug fixes in them. Again sorry for the inconvenience.

  20. CC Libraries, global changes

    It'd be great to be able to update Character and Paragraph Styles used in CC Libraries over multiple documents. Frankly, I was shocked to find out I wasn't able to do this.
