  1. Using local alphabets in Numering Style Format (Paragraph Styles)

    We have only two character formats "A, B, C, D ..." and "a, b, c, d ..." except digital. But many of us work with texts in languages with other alphabets, which are also used as indexes of lists. It would be nice to have formats of local alphabets depending on the language chosen for the paragraph. For example, if the Russian language is selected for the paragraph, then in the list of character formats, except the Latin alphabet, there will be a Russian "А, Б, В, Г..."
    This property should not depend on whether the localized or English version…

  3. Checkbox to change style of linked object

    I would like to use/export interactive PDF, which would allow user to check the checkbox next to object. Upon checking, the object hidden style would become visible.

    For example: I have PDF with multiple images of cars. When I check the checkbox near the image of car, that image will be overlayed with green transparent effect to show this car has been selected.

    I would like to have this feature available for my collection overview and to see the visual feedback of all collected objects would be satisfying for me.

  4. Keyboard Shortcut for Adopting Paragraph Style Sheets


    1. Using the text tool, click in a paragraph.


    2. Hold Option & Shift, then click a Style Sheet formatted paragraph


    3. The paragraph that had the text tool in it is now formatted to the [Option/Shift] clicked paragraph's Style Sheet.


    This is one of the most time saving keyboard shortcuts from Quark Xpress.

    This saves countless hours for anyone formatting text, albeit a tri-fold, or a 1,000 page catalog.

    PS: If you're going to mention Command/Return to bring up Style Sheets, this is not time saving. The user still has to scroll the curser around to select the Paragraph/Character Style Sheet, removing…

  5. Better Stroke Styles with Gap color

    This is actually a crossover between objects and styles. When I do a custom striped stroke style with a gap color, the gap color peeks out behind the stroke. It appears both in InDesign and in the resulting PDF. That background color should not show.

  6. Excluding settings in (paragraph) styles

    When editing a stylesheet i.e. for a paragraph I want to exclude the character colors. When checking -without color- there is also a override+ marking, which is not needed.
    Can we have a checkbox to exclude some style settings or another solution?

  7. highlight text with customc olor

    I want to highlight (or rather, underline because InDesign doesn't have a proper highlight feature...) my text a custom color. The standard 10 or so color options aren't enough. I want to use the color picker or a hex code to specify a different color to highlight my text. This is an important feature for me, because until it's implemented, I have to use Adobe Spark!

  8. Multi Level Running Headers with Numbering

    Add the ability to have multiple running headers. Specifically for multi-level lists that include numbering. Currently you can only select one paragraph style and it doesn't include numbering. It would be great to be able to create breadcrumbs for multi-level lists so you can show which section and subsection you're in INCLUDING NUMBERING. Currently the running header drops the numbering which is annoying.
