  3. Open Current File Location

    It would be amazing if you add Open Current File Location under the "File" dropdown.

    It is a really minor thing, but it would significantly impact productivity.

  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. InDesign for iPad/Mac cross-compatibility

    The iPad Pro has the M1 chip now. Why not have InDesign for iPad? Now that iPads have the same hardware as Macs there's no reason not to have one app that works on both.

  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. 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 :-)

  17. 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).

  20. 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.
