  4. Give one-sided versus two-sided option in print dialog box

    Most software allows me to select one-sided versus two-sided printing in the print dialog box. Indesign requires that I go into the printer setup to make that change.

  5. Layout-Options for "Cross-fold"-Brochures.

    When designing "Cross-fold"-Brochures, it would be helpful if it would be possible to arrange the pages in the pages-palet. Currently it's only possible to arrange them in a row, even if the pages on the pasteboard are arranged as they will be printed.

  6. Convert links to resolution

    Convert a copy of selected links to 300 dpi (or any chosen resolution).
    Including upscaling or downscaling.
    Alos available on packaging

    This would be helpful especially when supplied images are way too big, or some images are fine though a bit low res and need to be upscaled for print.

  7. package indesign containing other indesign documents linked

    I've a INDD doc containing several INDD docs linked. When I do package, if I select the make IDML option, only the main doc is saved as this, not the linked docs. I need to manual convert each doc (or open all docs and batch convert).

    Please start using the standard path location of files. I'm struggling with data merge handling thousands of images, which I would like to structure. Now I have to place all images within the main project folder, which makes it really messy.

    This is not the way it should work, especially as we use this document on several different computer - which would make us change the master data every time we work with it.
    C:/path/path/path/path/indesignproject/images/image.jpg

    Ideal would be to follow the standard OS paths which would make it work on the computer your opening the project on without having to…

  11. The A4 size

    The size of the A4 pages are not accurate. Normal size is 11.0x8.3 inches. Also since printers don't print all the way to the edge the documents go out of whack to try to adjust. I'm making a theatrical program for a school project and have had to get very creative with my solutions, wasting a lot of paper in the process.

  12. How do I reset HP Printer Is Offline error within my Printer?

    The HP printer’s Drum unit is a separate consumable unit that usually should be replaced after the use of 3 to 4 toner cartridges. If you possess a HP laser printer and getting a Replace Drum message on display of your printer, then it might be the right time to get a new drum. In order to track usage, your HP printer utilizes a page counter, which must be reset manually whenever a new drum is installed. If resetting doesn’t perform successfully, then you may face HP Printer Is Offline error. However, the online experts are only one call away…

  13. When printing a postscript file - i.e. file - print - postscript file - filename becomes last saved - it should allow for preserve filename

    When printing a postscript file - i.e. file - print - postscript file - filename becomes last saved - it should allow for preserve filename or automatically use the document name

  15. Bring back IMPO

    the basic Imposition indesign had many years ago was helpful. Especially variable data files

  16. Add items during packaging

    I hope you can also include additional files during packaging. When we package files, we usually include 3 PDF files (Print Quality for Readers, with Bleed for the Printer, and Low Quality for uploading online. In addition to the PDF files, we add another file which is the cover of the publication in JPEG format. Hope this will be added in the future. Thanks.

  17. Revert back so files can be moved or renamed while the file is open

    If you have a file open and make changes, then move the icon to another folder, or change the document name. This corrupts the file until the icon has been put back in the original place or renamed back to the original title. This causes lots of problems if you have multiple indesign files open and you are moving them around the computer as you work on different projects throughout the day. It is very easy to loose all of your work if you can’t remember the exact location of the original file or the exact name of the document…

  18. Diagnostic tool for Pre-flighting files/fonts

    Diagnostic tool for Pre-flighting files/fonts

    Indesign says it can't copy necessary files? But what files are those? why is there a problem? The information provided is weak, and needs to be stronger and support a better workflow. I think designs want better informational tools and pre-flighting.

  19. A way to chose where you would like to save your links, INDD file, etc when "packaging" a file.

    When working on projects with multiple large books, we would appreciate a way to "package" a file, yet save all of the links for each book in a Master Links Library folder, fonts in a Master Fonts Library folder, and PDFs in a designated folder.

    Additionally, it would be awesome if there was a way to preflight a file and ensure that all links are linking to a specific master links folder.

  20. Show which layer is printing in the slug area.

    We often have to print specific layers to be sure our art is on the correct layer for printing. It would be especially helpful to us to see which layer is printed along with the page information.
