  1. Add a "Duplicate" file feature much like Photoshop has.

    Would love to have a "duplicate file" feature much like Photoshop has so we can create a new version while keeping the existing document open in its current state.

  2. Larger area when moving page/spreads or duplicating via alt drag

    REQUEST
    Make the area for "dropping" a page/spread larger and on above and below pages/spreads.

    ISSUE
    The current area to "drop" a page/spread is small and inconsistent (see attached video). It also limited to the left or right of a page/spread, NOT above or below.

    GOAL
    Move or duplicate a page to a specific location in the document, more efficiently.

    REASON
    Duplicate page command sends the duplicate to the end of the document, which typically needs to be moved to another location in the document, thus highlighting the issue regardless of moving or duplicating via alt/option drag.

    STEPS

  3. Dynamic Page height

    An option to allow page height to auto adjust with content.

    This would be handy when linking one indesign document into another, such as a catalogue, each product and description etc would sit in the linked indesign file on separate pages, possibly data merged and then placed into working file. If the height of the linked pages where all auto adjusted to height of the content the pages could all be inserted with minimal effort and perfect spacing.

  5. Rename "Parent Pages" to "Master Pages" again.

    For workflow reasons only, please: Bring us the OPTION to use the word: "Master Page" again. We support inclusiveness, but this is too much!

  6. Button "back to starting point" in search and replace window

    When working through a document you need to search and replace words and other if you recognize a typo error, another word needed or anything else. But if you "search and replace" forward and you find a hit somewhere further ahead or back there is no button to jump back from where you started your search.
    Then you need to remember exactaly and search by scrolling where you started.
    A button "back to starting point" would eleminate these useless search.

  7. table of contents

    It would be great if there were a way to group pages with the same header, or automatically have a header include all page numbers between the page the header appears and the next header appears.

    For example, the publication I'm building has a few top-level categories, like Pens, Pencils, Pastels, etc… and then sub-categories of name brands within those main category sections, like Bic, Sharpie, Prisma, etc…

    Given that I'm already using the "alphabetical order" feature to make the ToC sort of like an Index as well, I'd like to be able to automatically include the pages in the…

  8. Add to the Object - Arrange menu, add a Behind Object command so that it allows you to place an object behind another instead of just Move A

    Add a Behind Object to the Arrange menu that allows you to move a single item behind another object on the screen without using Back or Front Arrangement only.

  9. Odt support in Place dialogue

    Hi! I'd like to see ODT Support in the Place dialogue. Since it already supports docx, ODT would be a logical extension

  10. Horizontal column/row guides when creating a new document

    Ability to create rows as well as columns as guides when creating a new document so that we can easily grid a page. Often I have to put items 4-up or 8-up and so forth and having the vertical columns is helpful but it would be even better to be able to have horizontal rows at the same time instead of having to measure them and drag guides down.

  12. Show grid in front of some layers but not all

    Add a setting to somehow designate a point within the layer stack where the baseline grid would appear. The desire is to have the grid visible in front of a background layer but behind everything above that. Perhaps in Preferences->Grids where there is currently a "Grids in Back" checkbox, there could be an additional checkbox of "Except lowest layer" or "Except lowest __ layers" or something. Alternatively, the setting could be in Layer Options, something like "Show Grids in front of this layer". You get the idea.

  13. 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".

  14. affichage

    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 ?

  16. Crop Marks

    I would like the crop marks to be cross hair style so when you cut one side you still have a mark to tell you where to cut the other. Right now once you cut one side the crop mark is completely cut off so you then have to measure where the next cut should be.

  17. Allow choice of right or left page to keep when eliminating page from facing pages master

    When downsizing from a master with facing pages to a single page, I'd like the choice of which page to keep instead of the default left page.

  18. Archive pages, spreads, artboards, etc. within a file without deleting them for good

    Wouldn't it be great if we could "archive" pages or spreads in inDesign (or artboards in illustrator, photoshop)? I want to be able to show options to my clients, and then narrow down those options by archiving pages without actually deleting them. Because sometimes, bless their heart, they want something from one of those already deleted ideas.

  20. Dynamic QR Codes By Default

    I'd like to request that all QR Codes that are created by In-Design are dynamic by default. I realize there would be some server costs and such, but being able to update a QR Code destination after an item has been printed would be a huge help. Adobe could also white label a dynamic QR Code service already in existence to make this feature come to market sooner.
