  1. HKS Z 21 Field is missing

    Could you please add this colourfield or something simular?

    Because there seems like no alternative for this special colour.

  2. Save\Package Option

    As I am finishing work on a new document, I would love a selection box for "Package Files" inside the Save Dialog or a Save\Package option. This would make it easy when saving at the end of the day if the files could be automatically packaged into one location if the selection box is checked.

  3. Break the table straddle rules (borders)

    Often we're receiving the feedback from our internal clients that table rule to be splitted whenever the tables are having multiple heads (attached the screen shot). Currently we unable to achieve this, need to fix in InDesign to fix this feedback.

  5. Load automatically the maximun ink (TAC) from the CMYK working space profile in the separations preview palette

    Load automatically the maximun ink (TAC) from the CMYK working space profile in the separations preview palette.

    It would be a nice feature if InDesign could load automatically the maximun ink (TAC) from the CMYK working space profile in the separations preview palette. Sometimes it is quite difficult to find that value inside the profile and if you are working with different requirements, as some prepress workshops do, having that preloaded would avooid many troubles.

    Thanks :)

  6. Push Out Compensation for Perfect Binding on PDF Export

    Being able to take a facing page document and adding an amount of cross over bleed from the spine and scaling that amount from the spine to the outer trim would be invaluable to my workflow for large perfect binding books. As it is now stands, I have to separate each spread to single pages and create bleeds towards the spine and move/scale each page to allow for artwork alignment in the final printing and binding.

  7. Print Preview rather than a P... or is that a d?

    I'm amazed at how complicated it is to be able to print something as simple as front cover and back cover as a spread.

    in fact, i have yet to figure that out at all.

    Is there a reason why i can't print select pages from a catalog, and see where they will land on a page?

    I feel like I'm working in Quark back in 2001. Have we made no progress in in the print dialog box since then?

    I'd like to be able to SEE the pages (from selected range) their orientation on select paper stock, and how…

  8. Add a way in a book file to change the conditional text "Set" of all documents within the book at a global level.

    Please add a way in a book file to change the conditional text "Set" of all documents within the book at a global level.

    This way I can print "Product A" without having to open every document within the book and changing the "Set" to product A. Like wise for "Product B," etc.

    An alternative would be to add it o the publish/print/export presets.

  9. Print Preview Dialogue Box

    The small print preview in the print dialogue box was recently changed to a light grey, making it harder at first glance to discern page from background. Can you please allow changing it back to dark grey be a preferences option

  11. Auto speads into pages

    Sometime we have to design in spreads then output for print in pages. This means with a spread you have to add bleed to the right of a left hand page and add bleed to the left of right pages when manually breaking the pages apart.

    It would save time if Indesign 1- split all speads into pages and 2 -
    extended any image/ coloured boxes to the left/ right by the amount specified in the bleed preferences.

  12. Mixed orientation printing within the same document

    Please consider implementing mixed orientation (auto orientation) with printing so it saves people time from having to export to PDF first then print as it is only possible through Acrobat at the moment.

  13. Restore the page overlay display in the print dialog.

    I previous version of InDesign and the initial releases of InDesign 2017, you could see quite clearly what would print on the selected sheet size. In the latest update as of Aug 2017, if I change a sheet from letter to legal that has been printed previously, letter is still selected in the dialog, but due to the preview sheet being legal and cannot see that there is a size mismatch without going through the individual dialogs. For reference, the portion of the document that would not be within the printable region showed as a different shade of grey, whereas…

  14. Print page

    Please consider changing the default setting on the Print Page setting from "Print All" to "Range". No one wants to Print All the pages every time you go to print pages. I cannot tell you how many times i hit print, thinking i am printing one page in the document and then realize i did not toggle "Range" and wind up running to the printer to cancel a file that is going to waste 25 sheets of paper. Please, please please change this default setting. Since i found this feature request site, I will now continue to send this request…

  15. Remove plug in

    I used an add-on module for years that I will not need anymore. Without the current version of this plugin, I can not package the files anymore. Therefore, I would like to permanently remove the plug-in from the file. For that I can not find a solution, except to first create an IDML file.
    I'm looking for a simpler solution, because I have several hundred files that are equipped with the module.
