  1. Find/Change match window

  2. InDesign 2018 USER INTERFACE STILL TOO SMALL!

    Over the years I (and others) have requested that the UI of InDesign be scalable. As designers, our eyes navigate us thru the creative process.
    IT IS NOT EASY to readily decipher palettes and menus which sport MICROSCOPIC TYPE on a 28-inch, high-resolution monitor.
    It IMPEDES workflow if one is spending extra time trying to find and choose things on the interface.
    At least give us a choice! Smaller, Medium, Large, Extra-large.

    When will Adobe get this??????

  3. Universal UI & Export Feature

    Can it please be possible to export your workspace to then import it onto another computer so we don't have to re-arrange everything every time we move or have to reinstall?

    It would be even better if when we log into our Adobe ID on any device, that our own workspace arrangement loads.

  4. Workspaces that save in relation to log in details

    You sign in to any Creative Suite programme using your Adobe log in credentials and it should populate that programmes UI with the layout you save it as.

    So no matter what version you work on, on any computer, Illustrator, Photoshop etc auto snaps into the layout you always use.

  5. Layer palette extra option

    Some option where the palette could/would autoshow the active layer - specifically when you have a lot of layers. Currently have docs with 100+ layers.

  6. Please fix menu overlap on fly out pages' window

    Wasn't sure if I should call this a bug or if it is by design, however, please fix the overlapping of the page indicator/tools on the pages' fly out menu. It overlaps when you have the window be its narrowest.
    When this happens I am unable to use the tools (e.g. deleting a page by dragging over the trash icon)

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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?

  12. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Not truncating filenames in window when relinking

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

  18. 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.…

  19. 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.

  20. 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? ;-)
