  2. Accessibility: DESPERATELY need to input table summaries in Indesign. Before exporting to Acrobat

    Accessibility: Long form print/digital/W3C-ADA designers need to be able to input table summaries in Indesign. I update an Accessibility Document 2-3/year. +325 Tables/25 pgs. This one project that is coupled with a 240 page digital catalog is the bain to my existence. Having to redo the Table Summary work every interation is TORTURE.

  3. Title.indb as a text variable accessible for any document part of the book

    Title.indb as a text variable for any document part of the book. Sometime when a book is printed (especially direct to print proof) it's difficult to know (remember- follow) which version you're at without putting the info inside the book itself. Having a text variable that updates automatically would be nice, you place it - you forget it - one less thing to check when printing

  4. Deselect files in Book-Panel

    It would be nice if there was an option in the book panel to deselect all book files. If there are a lot of files (in my case over 100), it is very difficult to do this. You have to click very precisely between two entries, which can be very tedious. A menu item "Delesect all" in the book menu would therefore be very desirable.

  6. Generative AI features for document design and styles application/revision

    When can we expect some more comprehensive/advanced baked-in AI features in InDesign? E.g. apply this doc's formatting to this unformatted one, apply these styles likewise for the next 40pgs, take my branding library and apply it to this new doc, review this doc and flag stylistic inconsistencies, etc. Seems like when and not if. Looking forward to the day!

  7. Inline Anchored Graphics

    Inline anchored graphics should have a "release" in the menu that is not grayed-out. Custom anchored graphics have this, but inline does not. This should be remedied.

  8. repeat action for specified pages

    while working on a document, it occasionally becomes necessary to apply a transformation to each page in a sequence of pages, for example, rotating an instance of a linked file on every other page, scaling the content of certain pages to prepare for printing in a slightly modified format, etc.

    It would be very useful to have a button that performs what is essentially the "repeat last action" or "repeat sequence again", but rather than applying said function to a selected object, records the marquis selection area as part of the sequence, and perform the selection and action on each…

  9. Hello! Can you please add «Exception» feature in «find and replace»?

    I use InDesign for book layout; there are so many times that i feel i need a feature to exclude some words when I search to replace. if there be a special feature like a list to exclude the characters or words for not to search them, it's gonna make it so much easier.
    Thank you.

  10. Different footnote styles allowed on a single page

    The ability to use different styles of footnotes on a single page (asterisk and numbers) used in footnote styling. ESSENTIAL for academic publishing.

  11. Add more Styles (paragraph and character) to the auto Styles pack

    I really loved the new Style Pack feature. I spend a lot of time mapping long documents and the Auto feature helped heaps. I know that it is recent, so I am wondering when we would be allowed to add new Styles to create a more complex hierarchy for the documents. Thank you :)

  14. Make it easier to find the option for 4-page spreads.

    The User Guide needs to include information about creating 4-page spreads. For book editing, seeing 8 pages at a time is great (on a larger monitor screen, which as a book publisher I use.). The Page function allows a 4-page spread, or more, when the user disables the Shuffle setting and drags and connects 4 pages together horizontally in the page view. Fine. I found this out on some non-Adobe graphic design forum by luck. This wasn't anywhere in the Adobe InDesign help or user information that I could find. Include this in the User Guide! Improve it so it's…

  15. data merge for interactive elements

    Data merge in Indesign works great, but only with text and images. Is it possible to make data merge possible for documents with interactive elements with buttons or hyperlinks for example?

  16. Data merge

    Recently I started using InDesign to make user manuals, but I wanted to make it easier to adapt it to the multiple products. I would like you to add an option where I can use multiple categorie variations on the same page underneath each other for the multiple languages that I need to include in the manual.

    Thanks in advance!

  18. To export personalized press books, to have a complete layout and be able to set aside non selected pages without removing them.

    To export personalized press books, it would be SO useful to enjoy a complete layout of all our work and just be able to set aside non selected pages without removing them before exporting the tailored document for a specific client. Of course, the pages numbers would have to automatically adjust themselves. Would this be possible? This would avoid saving many different versions after inserting and removing pages constantly.

  19. INDD and Clarivate EndNotes

    Is there a way to import a Word document that has citations from Clarivate EndNote into InDesign that also imports the anchored text links? Right now, I have to create anchored hyperlinks for each citation and reference within InDesign. Layout would be much faster if they came in already linked.

  20. Table of content number cross-reference option + Texte Hyperlink

    Hi all,

    Two option that can really be cool in TOC are :

    • an option to creat ''Cross-Reference page number''
    • an option to generate an hyperlink to the destination page for the TOC entry (Text and Page number)

    Like that, in bigger documents, with multi table of content (in my catalog project, I have a main TOC with all the section title + 1 TOC by section (with all the products titles and page number too). It could be great to generate those TOC automaticaly, and, have the number that are update automaticaly when we add or delete a page.
