  3. Better UI for Round Corners dialog

    Each corner represented by an icon oriented in the corresponding way.
    I think this can help user to work more intuitive.

  5. Indesign Thumbnails for Windows Explorer

    Hi Adobe!

    I recently switched from CorelDRAW to Adobe, and the "No Thumbnails for explorer" drives me nuts.

    Adobe seems to be trying to force us to use Bridge instead of Windows Explorer, but I'm not interested in using BR, I want to see my files directly in Explorer.

    Please fix this issue!


    See my post here:

  6. Name of the image near the link icon

    Near the link icon, add the option "show/hide file name (and or extension)".

    This will help when you have a catalog with 1200 products and in order to get the SKU and Color to fill the caption, you must click the image, then return to the text tool.

    I know there's ways to auto input the name of the image. But sometimes the image contain other Information not important.

  7. Scrubby Sliders for Everything Like Photoshop

    In Photoshop, every scalable feature (opacity, text size, feather radius, etc) is a slider if you click and drag on the name of the adjustment. This is particularly useful for (large) font size. In Photoshop, you can live preview your text size by sliding, while InDesign you have to either arrow key or type numbers to preview. At the very least, make the font size drop down go above 72 pt like Figma!

  8. If short form for the unit Points is "pkt" in could "pt" be accepted as alias instead of giving error message?

    In Swedish version of InDesign (and other Adobe Apps) to enter a unit in points we must type "pkt" where I believe most languages accept "pt". It would be a better experience for the user if the software would accept either "pt" or "pkt", especially if teaching a class where there are users with different language versions following the same instructions. There is no point in receiving an error that an invalid unit has been entered if the intent is clear, and unambiguous.

    Please change so that either pt or pkt can be entered as unit, that the unit is…

  9. Hide Extra's / Selection Edges / Anchor points etc.

    When manipulating colors of a selected Object, the color of the Handles etc. distracts from judging the color changes.
    Please add a shortcut to hide all but the artwork itself (like in Ai and Ae)

  11. lauge.rosendahl@arcanetinmen.com

    Let InDesign remember the last chosen size of the app window on screen.
    Like many people I work on a very large screen, and I have to refit the extend of the window every time I start InDesign. I think the problem is the same across most of your apps. Windows 10 btw.

  12. インデザイン 、イラレに関して。

    画像のリンクが埋め込まれているか、アプリを起動してファイルを開かなくても分かるようにしてほしいです。作業終了後リンク切れしないか確認するとき、立ち上げる動作が少し面倒に感じています。

  13. language

    No new idea but having the ability to change the language of interface could make InDesign more usable. Please give us that ability without having to uninstall and reinstall the application to change the language.

  14. Handling hundreds of links per page

    When an index or end reference pages (normally jumps to pages) have hundreds of links then opening and closing the link dialogue box is a bit of a slowdown. There should be a live toolbar/dialogue box that can update live as you select each link (an overlay box normally used). This way you could drop boxes on top of each page number/chapter, then quickly hop from one to the next and change each one.

  15. Hover over panels to expand them and let them collapse automatically

    Hi
    When working on a single (and small) monitor setup I am constantly collapsing and moving the panels of Photoshop, Indesign and Illustrator because that specific panel is hidden behind another expanded panel.

    This should fix that problem and should save me multiple clicks:
    The option to expand panels when hovering over the panel's icon and auto-collapse them when the mouse leaves the expanded panel. The workspace stays clean that way and I don't need to constantly close unused panels.

  17. Application Menu Search (Windows)

    I know this is an operating system thing, but after switching to Windows from Mac, I'm missing the search bar under the Help menu. I made a suggestion on the Windows Feedback Hub, but it doesn't seem to be getting much traction there. Unless I'm missing something, there's got to be others of you missing this functionality. Here's a link to my Windows Feedback Hub request. Go there and upvote! https://aka.ms/AAdvidk

  18. Smooth trackpad two finger scrolling

    Smooth trackpad two finger scrolling. Using Macbook Pro with m1. Currently, scrolling two fingers via trackpad is laggy. Wish it was as smooth as scrolling while using the hand tool.

  19. Iibraries panel back link

    The libraries panel is shaky on a 4K monitor - it's slow to load and there are display quirks galore.
    But that's not what I want to mention.
    The arrow to go back to all libraries is a link but the title of the library - which appears directly to the right - is not a link.
    UI 101 - please fix.

  20. Allow Disabling of Zoom to Selection *in InDesign*

    Problem:
    Right now if you have an object select and use the +/- keys to zoom in and out, the view is centred in on the selected object.

    Use Case:
    Sometimes I have objects selected as I am trying to maneuver them into the best position and need to zoom in and out of the pasteboard to see how the layout is affected. For objects at the edge of the pasteboard, the current behaviours doesn't allow me to keep the page centred as it keep jumping to centre the selected object instead while using the +/- keys.

    Solution:
    Add a…
