  2. Properties Panel

    I have been enjoying the consolidated Properties Panel that recently debuted in Illustrator 2018. Makes workflow much faster. Would be great to see this for InDesign as well!

  3. Please, make the Indesign Editor side-scrollable using the Laptop Touchpad on Windows 10

    The current Indesign Editor can be scrolled vertically, but it does not allow horizontal scrolling using the Laptop Touchpad on Windows 10.

    It would be good feature to have.

  4. Workspaces that save in relation to log in details

    You sign in to any Creative Suite programme using your Adobe log in credentials and it should populate that programmes UI with the layout you save it as.

    So no matter what version you work on, on any computer, Illustrator, Photoshop etc auto snaps into the layout you always use.

  5. option to disable power zoom

    like the titel says: option to disable power zoom. i never use this 'feature' and its very annoying that this power zoom activates when i try to move the workspace with the hand-tool.

  6. drag csv or txt file into Data Merge Panel

    Dear Adobe Developers,
    It would be awesome to be able to drag and drop a txt- or csv-file straight from the finder into the Data Merge Panel.

    Kind Regards

  7. eGPU

    Fix the acceleration GPU menu for choosing what GPU to use on Mac OS X High Sierra. Indesign seems hanged only on internal GPU available.

  8. New Larger, Horizontal Background Tasks Meter

    Please enlarge the Background Tasks Meter and make it horizontal in the Application Bar. It's hard to tell if anything's happening during PDF export, it's so small.

    It would be nice if it was an elongated meter or had the same basic info that the Background Task Palette shows when you click on it.

    Thanks!

    To be able to scale or enlarge the FIND FONT window -

  11. Allow file paths to be copied from the Missing Images pop-up window


    1. When creating a Merged Document using Data Merge, InDesign displays a pop-up window if it detects any images missing from the Data Source. The Missing Images pop-up window lists the file paths of the missing images. In older versions of InDesign, the file paths could be copied directly from the pop-up window. This is no longer possible with the latest version of InDesign.


    2. Being able to copy lists of missing image paths directly from the Missing Images pop-up window is valuable to me because I frequently use Data Merge to make merged documents containing tens of thousands of images. My…

  12. Showing open book files on Start workspace

    Situation now:
    When opening a book file Indesign adds a book panel showing all contained documents. You can then open documents through this panel. I usually dock the panel to the right with my other panels to keep the workspace tight and clean.

    But now the tricky part:
    When I close all documents I've set Indesign to return to the Start workspace. This shift to another workspace makes the book panel disappear as well (since it is docked with the other panels). I have to go to the menus to find the panel again.
    I guess the reason for this…

  13. Universal UI & Export Feature

    Can it please be possible to export your workspace to then import it onto another computer so we don't have to re-arrange everything every time we move or have to reinstall?

    It would be even better if when we log into our Adobe ID on any device, that our own workspace arrangement loads.

  14. Background tasks and glyphs panel width matching other panels

    I would love to be able to incorporate the Background tasks and glyphs panel width to my other panels.

    These panels are too wide and so cannot be included in my sidebar

  15. Option to open file path after PDF export

    Could the PDF export dialog box have an option alonside 'View PDF after exporting' for something like, 'View file in finder after export', so that I can really quickly send the file in an email.

    Or even 'Send file after export' so that I can super quickly flick the file off to our account managers?

  16. Enough blue, pop-up bubbles — It’s interruption and torture.

    What’s much more useful is a tour of new features in each release. This could be standalone / outside the app. Thanks!

  17. Zoom box in Pages Window

    I would like to see in CC InDesign the ability to see where you're zoomed in at in your pages window. Also, I'd like to be able to click and hold onto the highlight zoomed in the area on the pages window and move it to update the preview when I let go of the highlighted zoom box.

    This would be helpful for us users that create large catalogs and would like to quickly JUMP-TO a portion of a page. With large catalog files, the program can get sluggish/slow. When the user has to scroll through a bunch of pages…

  18. Recent Pane improvements

    I would like to suggest some improvements for the "Recent" pane across all Adobe programs.


    • Right click the preview thumbnail, and have the option to select "Reveal in explorer"


    • When having one or more files open, be able to return to view this "Recent" pane (in a tab perhaps)

  19. Make mini-icons easier to see

    I am running InDesign 2017.1 on a 1920x1080 monitor. The toolbar icons are quite small, but still usable, except for the ones dealing with color and stroke (lower left corner of UI). The mini-icons are trouble for old eyes and hands. I have tried changing the Windows text size setting to 125%, which improves the mini-icon situation but bloats the whole UI, reducing the work area. All I really want to do is make the color/stroke jumble easier to navigate and use. Everything else is fine as is.

  20. Open multiple files from the 'Open Recent' thumbnails page would really help speed up getting back into work flow

    From the 'Open Recent' screen, the ability to open multiple documents without having to go into the open dialogue would be great.
