  1. Paragraph style doesn't save for captions

    Saving paragraph styles for generating captions. I open many documents a day and would like to save the Paragraph Style. I make my changes and save it. I open another file and have to start over. No preset available. Maybe I'm missing something?

  5. FINDING AND HIGHLIGHTING DOCUMENTS IN THE BOOK PANEL.

    Hi

    I have a long document, each page sets to one document file (e.g. 200 pages equal 200 documents in the Book Panel!). Each book file has own title, some titles are short and some longer.

    Finding documents by their own name is necessary for me through this long list and finding by scroll down and up to find a specific document is time-wasting, boring task.

    I didn’t find any features in the Book Panel pop-up menu. Do you know any tricks to find a document by its own title among the many documents in the Book panel?

    Also, some…

  7. gpu on non-retina mac machines

    I am staggered that Adobe InDesign does not support GPU performance on standard display i-Macs - there must be tens of thousands of frustrated InDesign users now struggling with performance issues. This is a huge oversight, particularly when Photoshop and Illustrator both support GPU performance on older iMacs - sad to say very poor of Adobe.

  8. Bigger preview in Import pdf panel

    It is hard to see the PDF preview in the Import PDF panel.
    It would be great if you could choose the size of the thumbnail or adjust the size of the entire panel.

  10. Sub-folder grouping master pages

    Implement a more robust system for grouping and organizing master pages. Current the long list view is cumbersome, and has limited view options (aside from the thumbnail size). A sub-folder system would allow for more truncated views of page groups that fit better in defined sets.

  11. Make it obvious in the Page palette when a page dimension has been changed with the Page tool

    In a multi-page doc, it is not obvious when the dimensions of individual pages have been changed with the Page tool.

    This can waste time or at worst be disastrous if a document at the wrong size is inadvertently sent to print.

    I suggest some kind of colour tint or bright border to page thumbnails to clearly identify when a page dimension has changed from the document’s core dimensions.

  12. XML Import URL

    Hello,
    it would be nice if there was an invocation of an xml-file by url. It's time for InDesign to look to the future.

  13. Create Document Template Based on Current Document

    Create an absolutely empty document with settings and styles based on an open document.

    Sometimes we need to create a document template based on a ready one. You need to keep all styles, master pages, color sets, etc. At the same time, the working pages should remain empty.

  14. Several templates for a page / spread

    The requirement is to add different templates to a page / spread.
    It should be possible to simply combine templates independent of each other. Not based on etc...
    The names of templates could then be displayed one beneath another in page list preview. To apply several templates, we could select them at once and drug and drop to the page list preview.
    For example – one template for page numbers, another template for logo. Combining different logos and different colors of page numbers will then dramatically reduce the required template quantity.

  15. Remember the view pages preference (alternate layout/vert/horiz) for documents

    I go back and forth a lot working with documents with alternate layouts and those without. It would be helpful if the page view preference is saved along with the document instead of switching back and forth manually.

  16. Tabbing Sequence in Properties window

    When changing an open document's size from Properties window, pressing tab after changing the 'Width' takes you to 'Number of pages' field instead of 'Height' field.

    When working quickly this can disrupt productivity, especially when you're waiting to have '297 pages' created instead of simply changing the canvas to 297mm height. A minor but convenient change.

  17. Lorem ipsum reminder before Save.

    If "Lorem ipsum" appears in the file, when Save is tapped, before saving , a "Lorem ipsum Alert" should appear, so that this placeholder does not find its way into print in error. This suggestion applies to ID, PS and AI.

  18. Please add Units/increments within File>Document Setup...

    Please add Units/increments within File>Document Setup...
    So a user can easily change a document's units without changing the application preferences. The way it is now is confusing

  20. delete to the beginning of the line and similar support for macOS

    We already see the powerful shortcut being used in indesign to fast select to the beginning/end of the line (sht-home/end), won't it be nice if InDesign add a short cut to delete to the beginning/end of the line? like sht-cmd-del or fn-sht-cmd-del?

    I been using macOS's own delete to the beginning of the line (cmd-del) for so long, and I really love this feature, it allows you to quickly cleara a line and beginning new one, and in macOS you can use opt-del to delete a word (fn-opt-del to delete forward), I just love the fact that these mac shortcut…
