The reason is that the Find/Change function has a serious limitation in that it will only find text with certain conditions applied if you choose to search for ALL of the conditions applied to the text in question. That’s fine in the rare cases where I know all the conditions applied to the text that I need to find.
I want the a radio button behavior, where InDesign will find anything with a certain condition applied to it, even if there are other conditions applied as well.
For additional details, see:
We would like something called section colour property. Whereby any paragraph / character style which can be used as a property in any paragraph or character style.
So, if you had a paragraph style call heading with the character set to section colour, the heading would be red in page section 1 and blue on page section 2.
Great for long documents. Thank you.3 votes
It would be nice to have book level text variable(s) that is used in documents in that book.19 votes
Add run-in footnotes, so multiple footnotes could be on the same line to save space (instead of every footnote starting on a new line)36 votes
I have a design guide with a complex table of contents (see toc1.png).
There are topics like “Head - und Subline Allgemein” (see toc1.pgn) which spans over 3 different pages. After generating the TOC the topic is listed 3 times followed by their associated page number (see toc1.pgn).
I would like to see a check box in the table of contents dialogue box which merges all the same instances into one followed by the page range number (see toc2.png)!
Perhaps with a control of what character separates the two page numbers.16 votes
We work a lot with pictures that get there captions from xmp meta data stored in the pictures.
There is a great feature in InDesign called textvariables/live captions ;) for this… BUT these variables don‘t wrap like normal text :(
Instead we have to convert the live captions to static text to get the proper text warp and in doing so losing our live link to the XMP meta data.
So please enhance this feature to a real feature and allow variables to wrap like normal text. Thanks!155 votes
We have added this feature in our backlog for future release
Currently one has to use tab separated text (.txt) or comma separeted text (.csv). When using the .csv-export from Excel, it generates semicolons as separators, which is helpful because there may be a comma inside a table cell. So it would be helpful to use this text directly in InDesign.
This might be an issue only in the German version of Excel/InDesign, but it causes a lot of trouble.4 votes
When creating a text variable, it would be great to have it capture the auto numbering, e.g. if the heading is "1. Introduction" and the number is set as an auto number to the paragraph style, then the text variable that references that paragraph style should also pick up the number. At the moment, all you get from the text variable is "Introduction". Or at least have that as an option!19 votes
In every other panel, when there is a style override, resulting in a + symbol, if you hover over the symbol, it will tell you specifically what the overrides are. For example, a different type size, or font family or leading or something along those lines.
But in the Condition Sets dropdown, all you get is that there are overrides. And you can either clear them or redefine the set. But if I choose to clear the overrides, I have no way of knowing what the result will be.2 votes
