  1. 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.

  2. 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?…

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  6. 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 :-)

  7. Hide Selection handles en text marquee

    When designing, the inverted selected text is disturbing. Please add a shortcut to switch it off temporarily (like in Ae and Ai).

  10. How do I install the HP Support Solutions Framework?

    The HP Support Solutions Framework or HPSSF is a program developed by Hewlett-Packard which offers a common set of software interfaces. It allows the users to access and manage the drivers, hardware, and BIOS settings. If it got uninstalled from your system, then you don’t have to reinstall it separately. Instead, the newly developed HP Support Assistant functions the same way. If you don’t have it on your system then just visit the HP support website, 123.hp.com, and install the HP support assistant on your system.

  11. Please give the option to remove the "home" bar (the one with the house on it)

    In indesign, there is currently no way I can find to remove this bar that wants to live at the very top of my screen. I don't use it, it takes up valuable space and it has no purpose (at least for me). I want the option to turn it off, just like I can turn off the frame (which I don't use either). thank you
    ps adobe support told me to post here for the issue.

  13. Add shortcut or button to bottom of links palette for Collapse Multiple Links...

    Please add a keyboard shortcut or a button to the bottom of the links panel for the panel option "Collapse Multiple Links to Same Source". I have to toggle this on and off often and would like an easier way to get to this option. Thank you.

  14. Bulk "Don't Save" – Bulk "Export"

    InDesign has an irritating habit of forcing us to the "Don't Save / Cancel / Save" dialogue when we haven't even touched the file. This can be frustrating when I have many files open for, say, a bulk export to JPG (which is provided by a nifty script that you should really incorporate as well). I want to close all the 30 files, but even though all I did was export, I must respond to the same dialogue box 30 times.

    Therefore: We need a "Don't Save All Open Files" option when closing windows.

    We also need a "Export All…

  15. Make Layer Options work logically

    In Layer Options we have the choice to Show the layer and/or Print the layer.
    But when Print is unchecked, the layers doen's show either.

    Please make it possible to Show a layer, but don't print it. This comes in handy for guides / instructions or e.g. to visualize the window of an enveloppe.

  16. context menu in book palette

    Why there's no right click functionality in book palette?
    Every command you want to make you must select document, then open palette menu then select command.

    Please switch on context menu in book palette!

  18. 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!!
