  1. Remove Adobe Stock search field from the menu bar

    I don't use Adobe stock, and have no plans to. I see that under View > Extras > there is an option to hide "stock purchase badge." And in Preferences, there is a way to Disable Publish online. I would like a way to hide the Search Adobe Stock field from the Control bar. No matter how small the window gets, it is still there, even iff all the other (useful) options don't fit. Please allow us a way to hide it.

  2. Please bring this little feature from XD to InDesign

    Check the video. Very easy to implement. I do not understand, why you have not already.

  4. Rework Grid: Set Grid opacity, Add Grid to Document setting in stead of Preferences

    Grids are very usefull. But when those are In Front, it would be convenient if the opacity could be reduced. 100% opaque makes it hard to make design decisions when the grid is active.

    An old (Xpress legacy?) irregularity, is that Grid settings are part of Preferences, while these should be part of Document Setup.

    Grids belong to a document, not the application.

  5. 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?

  6. 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.

  8. Stop making the CC Libraries the default!!!!!!!

    I am sick and tired of the Library panel popping open because there are embedded defaults that make EVERY new thing I make think it needs to be added to the cc library.

    I DON"T WANT TO USE THEM AS DEFAULT!!!!

    If I want to use them I will decide.,

    STOP MAKING IT THE DEFAULT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. touch bar support

    I've been using the touch bar of my MacBook Pro for a lot of things, including Photoshop. As I am mainly using Indesign in my everyday work, it would be great to have touch bar support, for instance for applying paragraph styles to texts.

  10. Not truncating filenames in window when relinking

    I'd say this is self explanatory and has always been a bug bear to me.

  12. beeing able to save document bounds (document preferences)

    I have this problem, that my workspace layout has pallettes docked to the right screenside. With multiple document windows set to non tabbed (*see screenshot; red area), the initial opened window will extend under my pallettes (*green area), making it impossible to see the scroll bar. Also the document page isnt centered (*blue area), and objects on the pasteboard are dissapearing out of sight under my palettes (*yellow area).

    I have this covered by a start-up script with an event-listener 'afterOpen': app.layoutWindows[0].bounds = [81, 40, 1357, 1762];

    But i'd like to see this as an option. Maybe in the document…

  13. The fill and stroke selectors on toolbar when in the single column option are too small.

    The fill and stroke selectors on toolbar when in the single column option are too small. By comparison in Illustrator in the same single column view they are much bigger and easier to select.

  14. Jump to page 1 = just go to first page already

    If my document is numbered pages 43 to 59, for example, and I press Command -J and enter "1" for "Go to page:" PLEASE just take me to the first page in the document! Is that too much to ask? ;-)

  15. Add full fullscreen/splitscreen support for Mac OSX

    OSX has a fullscreen/splitscreen mode, integrated into their Spaces (desktop view dedicated to one app only) support in almost any app.

    Acrobat (!) already added this fullscreen support.
    The classical design workflow would be greatly improved if InDesign (and most other CC apps) would support this *native* *OSX* feature.

    Especially corrections, copying text, comparing artwork and final lay-out, switching apps, would go much faster, with less switching of views, apps, moving windows around etc…

    On a MacBook, this would make *all* Adobe apps much more useful. I (and many others) do not want to pay for a second monitor, only…

  16. Put the Tab panel in the Text and Table section of the Window menu

    The good old Tabs are still standing strong, and they can still do stuff Tables and Character or Paragraph settings can't, like tab leader dots, align on specific characters, fill to right tabs, etc.

    But users are always looking for it under the Text and Table section in the Windows menu. I know, it might technically not behave completely like a regular window/panel. But it looks like a window, it moves like a window, so to most people it's a window...

  17. Put the Stroke Styles in the Styles section of the Windows menu

    It's so simple, and so obvious.
    No one knows there are Stroke Styles (and brilliant ones) until some one tells them to look under the side menu of the Stroke window...

  19. Default black pasteboard option across all documents

    At present if you unselect matching the pasteboard to the theme, the only default is white. Please can we have a black option so we don't all go blind.

  20. print-preferences should auto-sort alphabetically

    Just a thingy: Im not able to alter the order of my styles, thats fine and dandy. But then I would rather have it sorted alphabetically.

    @screenshot: See how "A1" (2) is at the bottom, where my brain want to find it at the top of the list beneath A1 (1).
