  2. Keep my same workspace whenever I open InDesign

    Every time I open InDesign, it is set to Essentials and I always have to manually set it to Essentials Classic. Not sure if this is a subtle way to phase out of Essentials Classic but it drives me insane!!

  4. Option to tint pasteboard ...

    Match pasteboard to theme is fine, but it would be helpful to be able to tint the pasteboard.

  5. Make UI scaleable in InDesign as in Illustrator ...

    UI elements are way to small at 3840x2160 ... Illustrator is perfect!

  7. Unresolved cross references need to be detected as errors

    If a document contains unresolved cross-references, InDesign should register them as errors that show up at the bottom of the main window, with specifics listed in the Preflight window. At present, InDesign will notify me of the existence of unresolved cross-references when I start to print a file or book, and it will identify which files contain them, but it won't show me where to find them so I can fix them.

  9. Allow for selecting a set of Links for relinking, not just parent link or individual link

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign/quot-how-may-i-select-multiple-links-for-re-linking/m-p/11682784?page=1#M407985

    Looking to perform "Select Multiple Link Replacement”

    Right now I can Re Link Parent Link (of ALL Instances) and change 1000 instances of an image.

    Right Now I can Relink ONE individual “Child” instance or ONE image at a time.

    But I cannot SELECT and RELINK Multiple Selected Links (example: 10 out of the 1000) SELECT instances of an image.

    The only way to presently do this is to highlight the 10 instances and then Relink them one by one where a dialogue box opens and requires me to repeat the link process and click OK all 10 times.…

  10. PLEASE TURN OFF the 'Type 3 fonts no longer supported after 2023" message

    PLEASE TURN OFF the 'Type 3 fonts no longer supported after 2023" message, it is very annoying for the many legacy documents I must work on. YES I know! That is two years away and there seems to be no way to make the blue bar go away.

  11. Customisable colours for composition highlights

    I’d like to change the colours used to highlight custom tracking, H&J violations, substituted fonts etc. Some of the default colours are not very accessible, or stand out more than needed.

  12. Turn off Touchscreen Workspace permanently! Or allow Users to!

    Can Adobe PLEASE stop making the Touch workspace compulsory every time the app launches. Not all users want this. We didn't ask Adobe to turn off our usual interface and replace it with a Touch version.

    When we have to go through the mandatory 'hey look at this new example - now click get started' EVERY TIME just to get into the app, only to have to then turn it off by choosing "essentials" (top right) again EVERY TIME we launch the app, it becomes a major pain.

    Who on earth at Adobe throught this would be a good idea?…

  13. drag and drop .indd file into book panel

    Whenever I add the .indd document to the book panel, I need to add each file via finder. At this time, if the target files are located in several different folders, I have to do several iterations. drag and drop features will reduce this repetitive work.

  14. Add page range option to find/change

    find/change dialogue box > SEARCH field drop down menu

    Add ability to select a page range.

    This would be particularly useful when it comes to replacing swatches. Let's say you have a section of a book that is GREEN and another section that is BLUE. If you had a range option you could easily use find/change to swap the two colors but as of right now, this is not the case. You have to use a temporary GREY as a placeholder, find/change the BLUE to GREY, then the GREEN to BLUE, and finally the GREY to GREEN. It feels like…

  16. Working with multiple files - When a file is closed, rather than skipping to the last file, got to the next file in order

    Description:

    I have multiple files open at once.

    When finished working on the first, if I close it, InDesign will skip to the last file that was opened, rather the next file in the order.

    See attached - I closed “untitled 1” and it skipped to “untitled 5” rather than going to “untitled 2” which is next in line.

    Why this would be valuable:

    This interrupts an expected workflow to InDesign's usual left to right UI direction.

    InDesign allows users to reorder the file tabs to suit their needs. Skipping to the end file in unexpected behaviour and switching back…

  17. User-definable colors for highlighting H&J Violations

    With checked Preferences / Composition / Highlight H&J Violations, the default colors for highlighting them (against paper background) are yellow and violet, plus some shades of them. As I seem to have some trouble in visually identifying those colors when present as light shades, I’d like to be able to modify them in order to work better for me. Thank you :-)

  18. Saving files - please have just filename selected, not extension

    This used to be how it was, I can't tell you how much time I waste selecting an insertion point to rename the file.
