  1. Store the state of a style group, open or closed, when saving a document

    Current state:
    If I open a style group in a styles panel, save, close and reopen the document all style groups are closed by default.

    Feature modification request:
    Save the state of a style group, open or closed, when saving a document.

    This should be done to all panels that allow for style groups.

  2. Full Font features from within Style Sheets.

    When making a paragraph style or charachter style. The font family opitions are limited as compared to the new font options available from the main screen, it would be great if the full feature set could be incorporated at least show is the font we are choosing not just the name. Thanks.

  3. Nested Styles - Add more options to apply them to END of a paragraph

    When creating a nested style, the only options we have for its activation point are [through] or [up to] . This means they're designed to have an affect only at the START of a paragraph, and to work only from left to right. This is very inflexible, and it's frustrating to work around, especially if we want particular style variation to occur somewhere at the END of paragraph.

    It would be really helpful if in addition to the two existing options, you added ones like [after] or [after first instance of] or [after nth instance of] or [before last instance…

  5. Serait-il possible de faire des filets seulement sur un ou plusieurs cotés d'un bloc texte (comme sur une cellule de tableau) ?

    J'ai pouvoir appliquer à un bloc texte un filet de contour seulement sur un ou plusieurs cotés du bloc — un peu comme cela est déjà possible pour sur une cellule de tableau. Merci

  6. alt/option + new style

    When you want to create a new style and have the window pop up immediatly, you have to alt+click on ne "new style" button.
    The window should pop up when you simply click the "new style" button. This should be the same for other panels such as the swatches panel.

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  10. Option to apply object styles on document import.

    We should have an option to apply object styles on import. There used to be a script that would do this but it isn't updated anymore. The ability to load a place brush and choose an object style for each page as i place them would be a tremendous time saving workflow for importing long documents. If we could somehow build that into "multi-page Importer" that would add pages to my document on import, too, it would be perfect.

  12. Please make it possible that we can have a number is paragraphs of text that link to the actual page number that is being referenced.

    Please make it possible that we can have a number in paragraphs of text that link to the actual page number that is being referenced. So if the page number is changed, then the numbers in the paragraph should also reflect the changes.

  13. Filter & Labels in (Object/Character/Paragraph) Style Panels

    As in Photoshop's and InDesign's Layer Panel it would be very helpfull to have the option for colored Labels/Flags.
    Also, like in Photoshop, a filter/search option on top of the Style Panels would help organizing complex files (newspaper/magazine templates) and speeding up the process.

  14. 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.

  15. Type and select style from drop down list

    Need to type and select the style from the drop down list. Currently we need to find and select the style using mouse scrolling. It will take time when we have lots of paragraph, character styles in InDesign document. Do this for all the drop down list available in InDesign palette. For example, we need to delete a style and replace with another style.

  16. New "Justification Auto-Correct" Feature

    Justification, while pleasing to the eye from the perspective of an entire page, creates problems. Hyphenation can correct this, to some degree, but it too has its problems. In the end, when justifying text, certain lines of text end up being scrunched while many others leave wide open spaces between words.

    In doing my best to correct for these problems, I tend to make most use of the horizontal scale feature. I often find that most of these visual blemishes (scrunching or overly-wide word spacing) can be corrected by either reducing the horizontal scale down to about 97% (in the…

  17. Add ability to name Grep-styles

    Add the ability to name or grep-styles.
    Grep queries are not human friendly, and it can be hard to "read" and understand them. A option to label them would be great.

  19. Improve Title Case

    When sentence case is added to the paragraph styles panel, please add a place where we can list a set of words to be omitted if they appear after the first word. For example: and, the, a, an.

  20. Add all case options to styles menu. Styles missing lowercase and sentence case.

    For whatever reason the lowercase and sentence case options are available from the top menu under Type, but are not enabled in the paragraph style options. Please cross-enable the features. I recently had a client change the ingredients in a 200 page recipe book from sentence case to all lowercase. I ultimately ran a find and replace by style using GREP code, but it would've been much easier and more efficient to be able to build this into the styles.
