  3. Retain previous window dimensions & position & display

    My ID (CS6) workspace has palettes down both sides of the screen. If I open a file that I'd been working on then closed, the file window stretches across the screen and goes behind the palettes, tho' when I closed the file previously, the window fit exactly between the two columns of palettes. Assuming a fixed workspace, I'd like the window to be exactly where it was when I last closed the file. It is a 3-step process to restore position & dimensions manually, more if there's a palette covering the bottom right corner of the window. Maybe this has…

  4. Ability to anchor graphics across spreads

    Because with accessibility it is important to anchor graphics, sometimes when the graphic reference is on the previous spread or the next spread, it is necessary to anchor to another spread when the graphic doesn't fit. When you do this, indesign will automatically move the graphic to another page. You should have the ability to anchor something across spreads.

  5. Rethinking pages with an infinite pasteboard and multi-user collaboration

    Let us bring InDesign into an open and more collaborative world.

    The individual pasteboard and contained page structure of InDesign are very constraining. It is time for a different approach to how we do page layout.

    Let us move to an infinite style pasteboard canvas (a la Illustrator, or Adobe XD, Figma) where your imagination can run wild! Think of it as a blown-up version of the Pages Panel with the same click-to, snap-to rearrange functionality, but without the extra layer of InDesign UI baggage.

    • Pages would function the same way with a left-to-right, top-to-bottom order, snapping layouts into the…

  6. Set asset path base location in preferences

    Allow the user to set the base relative path location in preferences instead of having them set to absolute all the time. This will allow complete folder structures within Create Cloud Folders to be shared to other user without all the assets link breaking all the time and will avoid the need to send packaged files all the time.

  7. Exclude Pasteboard (PB) from Find/Change

    Many of the Find/Replace functions would be much faster and easier to complete if only run on the pages area only rather F/C searching paste board too.

  9. By providing the flexibility to apply language settings to the entire document.

    Hi i have an indesign document and just finished working on it. And i realized that language setting on this document is Turkish. I want to change language all texts in this document to english but I cannot do this all at once. I have to select all the texts one by one and manually to change the language setting. How can I change the language setting of all texts in the document to US english at once? Answer: There is no way at the moment :(

    I can click on the text box, select the whole text with ctrl…

  10. Make it remember when I choose "View -> Actual size"

    Make it remember when I choose "View -> Actual size". God knows how many times I had to go in and choose it again, as it switches back to "Fit Spread in Window" or "Fit Page in Window".

    Bonjour,

    mon équipe et moi même rencontrons souvent ce genre de problème d'affichage lorsque nous passons d'un mode à l'autre (touche W)... peu importe le document qu'il soit long ou non, complexe ou non...

    est ce normal ?

  13. Extract/Save Individual Pages in an Indesign Document as a Separate InDesign File

    Please please please consider making a feature where you can extract pages/spreads in an InDesign document as a separate InDesign file. I work in Proposals for a Civil Engineering firm and our proposals are generally 100+ pages with a lot of resumes and project pages. After each proposal is complete we have to go in and save every resume in each person's resume folder and every project page in its respective folder. It takes such a long time to create a new indesign document for each resume and project and copy/paste it over and then save in a folder. It…

  14. Option to rotate all the contents of the multiple pages

    Imagine, you are doing a big document in vertical orientation and its a lot of pages and then client ask that he wants to have it in horizontal instead. Without this function the process will take so much time it is painful to imagine!
    The option is fairly simple and already there is a rotation page view exist just one step forward and it can be improved!

    Thank you for your attention.

  15. Paste an object on exactly the same place on the page

    When I copy a text frame or an image frame or other object like line and paste it on another page, now it pastes randomly, and it takes time to place it where I wanted. In half cases I need to place that object on exactly the same position where it was on the page where I copied it from.

    Some of your competitors have this function and it saves a lot of time. How about to implement it in InDesign and your other software as well?

  16. Endnotes should have the same renumbering options as footnotes

    Footnotes can be set to renumber every SECTION. This is OK, but could be improved (see below).
    However, endnotes can only be set to renumber every STORY. This is a most undesirable limitation, because it requires breaking text threads in order to create new stories. This is destructive design—to limit potential problems it is necessary to wait until layout is completed before breaking threads. Even then, problems can still occur.
    This problem could easily be fixed by allowing endnotes to be renumbered the same ways as footnotes can be—every section.
    Of course, renumbering every section also has a significant limitation—it…

  17. Put back scroll arrows on the scrollbars in InDesign

    With the update from InDesign 2020 to InDesign 2021 I noticed that the scroll arrows at the end of the right and bottom scroll bars have disappeared (see Image 1 (ID). In Illustrator 2021 however they are still present (see Image 2 (Ill).
    I can't find any setting in the preferences to toggle them on or off.
    I use these arrows frequently and the omission of these arrows in the new InDesign are very annoying to me.
    Hope to hear from you soon.

  18. Start supporting "Working off Network Drives/shares"

    Users are expected to download files to their local HDD and then work the project locally before committing it to a server/file share. this is ridiculous to ask. some of these files are huge and would consume the HDD space on the MAC/PC, let alone the network traffic and congestion they would create saving back and forth. Adobe needs to fix this issue so that users can work on a file and save to network share for other designers to work. InDesign and all products from adobe have this behavior. locking for sometimes days before someone is able to open…

  19. Larger preview window on Place image dialog box

    When picking images in a multi-page document from a PDF or Adobe Illustrator files, it would be nice to see a preview size bigger than the 125x125-ish window that is used in the dialog box. Thanks!

  20. Open as Copy or Open as Template

    Rather than opening an existing file and then "save as" I'd like the option to open an existing file as a COPY or TEMPLATE. This would help in environments with many users from accidentally saving over a file and would allow a user to open a document currently in use by another
