  1. Version number on splash screen?

    Sometime I have more than one version of InDesign on my Windows PC, especially if the latest release is buggy. It would be very useful to have the program version number show up on the splash screen when you start the program.

  2. Quick Key for increaseing space between paragraphs.

    A quick key for increasing space between paragraphs would make it quicker to explore and establish paragraph styles. It would be great if there were quick keys to adjust the spacing around the first and last line too, but the space between paragraphs seems more important, personally speaking.

    How about Command + Option + Shift + up/down Arrow Keys so it's similar to the quick key to increase/decrease leading.

  4. Preflight Profile for Accessibility

    Add options to run accessibility checks in InDesign. Acrobat already has the ability to run an accessibility check. It would be so helpful to be able to run a preflight check for issues (e.g., alt text, table headers) before exporting.

  5. UI feels outdated and cluttered

    The UI still feels like it's stuck in 2000.
    It is not free scalable, input fields are to small or resize.
    Using the ui scale option, feels like it did just zoom in.

    Best example: The font size is limited to 4-5 Characters, no way to make it bigger if you want to input some simple math (19,416 Pt * 1,25).

  6. show the name of the open file in the window name of Tabbed interface

    Tabbed Interface has a Window Title that does not reflect the Document that is in Focus and being worked on. As some time tracking Apps like Rescue Time or Timely are using Window names to log time entries it would be helpful, having a more talkative window name that shows the document name of the tab that is currently in the foreground.

  7. keep "Composite fonts" function, and let user change the interface language directly in the application.

    The latest English version of InDesign 19.0 is no longer compatible with "composite fonts"...
    In Asian countries, the "Composite fonts" function is quite important to most users who keep working with bilingual documents. It gives us a headache always when we need to update the application. Instead of downloading the application in different languages, why not integrate some of the languages, like merging commonly used English and Asian languages? We only need to change the interface language directly in the application, which does not hinder us from using the "Composite font" function. Isn't it better?

  8. Chequeado de obra

    Solicito a los desarrolladores una herramienta que bien se podría llamar "Chequeado de obra". La misma consistiria en una pantalla donde cualquier diseño que tenga más de una página, pueda ser reproducido a la manera de un video. Ese "Player" debería contar velocidades ajustables para mostrar las páginas. ¿Cúal sería el beneficio?. la utilidad de esta herramienta nos permitía cotejar nuestra diagramacion de forma "espacial" donde veríamos que los elementos de cada página tengan un sentido estético a lo largo de toda la obra. Permitiría detectar "saltos" de elementos que no guarden una estética general.

  9. Add Units selection in dialog boxes

    It would be extremely helpful to have an option to switch between units in all dialog boxes where values can be entered in different units.

    For instance when making a new document we have the option of selection units via a drop down menu.

    Is there really any reason why this is not an option in all cases where the user can input values of certain units?

    We could need it in the following dialogs:
    - Document Setup
    - Margins and Columns
    - Create Guides
    - All the Dialog boxes for setting paragraph, character object styles.
    - Print Dialog
    -…

  10. Allow to resize the Keyboard Shortcuts window

    Please make the Keyboard Shortcuts window resizable!

    Namely, to make it taller.

    Right now it's just too small and requires a lot of annoying scrolling to find the desired menu item.

  11. Please add "Default search scope" to the Preferences

    Hi, Adobe design team!
    I'm sorry to say, but NEVER IN MY LIFE have I wanted to search for something inside a single Story. It's kinda infuriating to have to switch to "Document" as the Search scope every time. Can we please have the chance to change, what is our default?
    Thanks in advance!

  13. Restore adjustment arrows in Transform window for X/Y and W/H values

    When InDesign updated to the 2024 version, I lost the ability to use the Essentials Classic layout with the Properties bar at the top instead of the right, and in the Transform window, either as part of the Properties bar or on its own, lost the up and down adjustment arrows with seemingly no way to bring them back. I prefer being able to make tiny adjustments by sixteenth increments rather than at random or just eyeballing it and this change is absolutely driving me insane. I've rolled back to the previous version for now, but I know you all…

  15. Allow pop-up panels such as paragraph styles editor to be resized

    When the operating system font size and/or software UI scale is increased it causes the bottom of the panel to be too long and clipped off under the Windows taskbar. Most of the panel is just empty grey space so can be scaled down without losing any of the contents.

  16. Custom Font Menu

    Please ad the ability to customize a font menu. In order, with colour across all software and the ability for it to over-ride current files with that same custom menu.
    The favourites is just not as powerful at custom order and colour coding for each kind of font style.

  17. Remember last selected section in Preferences

    Remember the last selected section in the Preferences window.

    For example, if I selected File Handling then clicked OK in the Preferences window, File Handling should be selected the next time I open Preferences.

    Right now it always defaults to General. While in many cases I want to use the last preferences section I used before when I open the Preferences window.

  18. Make it possible to create GROUPS in the Pages palette and the Layers palette.

    Make it possible to create GROUPS in the Pages palette and the Layers palette. Just like I can do in the Swatches palette or Styles palette.
    When there are many pages (or layers) in a document, grouping them will be very handy.

  19. Buttons and forms (Interactive) panel needs revamping

    The panel is barely usable in it's current form for anything more than a few buttons per page due to not being able to increase the height and width of the panel, especially the visibility section when a button is highlighted. At the bare minimum this needs to be resizable so that more can be seen so that linking and adjusting the on/off states of buttons can be performed more easily.

    Ideally, the panel needs an overhaul so that multiple buttons can be shift+selected so that they can be set to be called before being visible by default, or switched…

  20. Better Relinking to CC Libraries

    I'd love to see some much needed quality of life/functionality improvements to CC Libraries in InDesign when relinking:

    • Ability to Search when relinking

    • Ability to see/sort by groups when relinking

    • Ability to change view (thumbnail/list) when relinking to CC Libraries

    • Infact, anything more than the current 'Relink to CC Librarires' functionality, which is literally just a list of every single asset in that library sorted by name

    We have thousands of assets in some of our libraries, which are all nicely sorted by group. But this is useless when this is completely ignored by the CC Libraries panel.
