  2. Table of content – Styling improvement

    1) Please make the TOC dialogue box scaleable: especially the include paragraph styles box is unmanageable (long names are not visible and after applying settings to a style it scrolls back to the top of the list)
    2) Please include option to strip or override character styles in TOC
    At the moment you need a lot of paragraph styles to set up the TOC, especially when having multicoloured headlines, both in document and TOC
    3) Please give text boxes an option "include in TOC" (helpful when having the same headline on several pages) and the option to enter alternate wording…

  3. Advanced Paragraph Shading Options


    1. The ability to specify a specific measured width for paragraph shading in pica, inches or whatever is the standard unit for the document.

    2. The ability to extend shading through continuous paragraphs. (i.e. If two consecutive paragraphs have the same paragraph style (with shading) that there is no gap between the paragraphs. Currently you have to use offset to extend these.

  4. Add to TOC checkbox for Paragraph Style Options window

    While working on a project with lots of styles it will be hard to decide all the styles on TOC window. It will be useful to select TOC styles on Paragraph Style Options window.

  5. Find all instances of a Paragraph Style

    Find all instances of a Paragraph Style in a document via the Paragraph Styles panel. Like you can see with Links, be able to view the pages that the styles exist on and jump to these pages by clicking on the page number in the panel or be able to navigate through them with up and down arrows

  6. Map tags to Object Styles

    It would be great to map tags to not only paragraph and table styles, but also to object styles. Paragraph styles have some limitations wich object styles don't have.

  7. Paragraph Borders and Shading - Keep in Frame

    I use a P Style for a Tip paragraph in my Quick Reference Cards (QRC). The Tip is typically one or two sentences, and has a light shading (light grey) with a top and bottom blue border. I use a similar style for Warnings, except I change the borders to red. Occasionally, the Tip/Warning falls at the top or bottom of a column, and the Border, and sometimes the Shading, lands outside the text frame.

    Can we have a "Keep in Frame" for Borders and Shading, similar to the one for P Rules? David Blatner had a great workaround when…

  8. Make it possible to add ad Swatch from within the Style editing panels

    When editing a style and realising that a certain Swatch is not made yet, is a bit frustrating, since Swatches can not be added on the fly.
    Why not make it possbile to edit a color and add a Swatch in the style editing panel? Or let have styles their own colors without the need of a Swatch.

  10. Stroke & Corner Options independent of each other

    We create instruction sheets for setting up/updating retail displays. We use bolder and various colored strokes (object styles) to indicate which items are new to/changing location on/exiting a fixture. If none of these apply, a default (thinner/black) stroke is used. Sometimes the strokes have rounded corners or custom shapes ...and we need to use the stroke option to force the very thick stroke to align outside or it covers up the art within.

    With each new update, we start by setting all strokes back to the default (gloabal find/change) and then change individual strokes as needed. But because Stroke &…

  15. Options d'enchaînement dans un style de paragraphe débutant en page suivante

    Ma requête concerne les styles de paragraphes ayant l'option d'enchaînement débutant en page suivante : si l'en-tête de page comporte plusieurs paragraphes identiques successifs, je souhaiterais que l'option de saut de page ne soit active que sur le premier paragraphe.

  16. Form styles control within object styles

    hi,
    I am referring to been able to edit and adjust all of the setting you have available via the form pane for buttons, check boxes, radio, combo and so on via an object style. at least i think it should be under object styles.

    You should be able to control all of the forms options as a style so you don't have to select each one individually when the client has changes. for us doing elearning from indesign this is a must have when creating many text fields, combo boxes, check boxes and so on

  17. Apply object style to a group

    It would be nice if I could apply an object style to grouped objects. Especially useful when using only the position functions.

  19. External Paragraph Styles (to keep all documents in sync easily)

    I would like to have external paragraph styles (and other styles too) so that they can apply to multiple documents and keep all documents using them in sync with the same set of styles.
