  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. With a specific paragraph style character style page, automatically apply a specific home page?

    With a specific paragraph style character style page, automatically apply a specific home page?

    For example, in the start page, we only need to display "Chapter 1" and "Chapter 2". We chose to apply the "None" home page. Now it's manual. It's a lot of trouble.

    These pages are not the same as the home pages of the front and back page applications.

    I think it's more convenient to apply a specific home page to pages with certain paragraph style or character style.

    Maybe you can use the chapter to judge the application of a special home page, which is…

  8. Open other file formats in InDesign

    I love how I can create my publications amazingly with InDesign, but I really need to edit other files on devices.

    I have PUB files that I created when I was using Publisher 2019 back then, but I can't seem to open them with InDesign. Being the industry standard in desktop publishing, I can't believe that I cannot edit other files.

    I hope this gets added.

    Sincerely,
    Gab

  9. 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…

  12. Add the nine grid positioning feature when adjusting InDesign document size.

    Channeling the canvas size feature in Photoshop here. Would be nice to set the location when changing INDD document sizes when art is already on a page.

  14. "sketch mode"

    i would like the ability to create a mockup right from a working document to share with a client. this "sketch mode" would put placeholder horizontal lines in the text frames, x’s in the image frames, and assign an architectural-drawing-inspired, hand-sketched stroke around all the frames. there could be a layer for notes and flexible arrows for labels and client-focused descriptions, and any actual text, images, or page furniture already placed could be hidden. the designer could export the pages in a large thumbnail-size presentation and then modify the document based on client comments without leaving the working document. this…

  15. location included on recents page

    i would like to see the path/location listed with the file name on the recents page of all adobe programs. i often save a document with the same name to an external drive and when i next open my recents page, i might open the backup copy by mistake. i wouldn't do this if i could easily see the location of my files. office 365 does this on all its programs and it is really helpful. thanks.

  16. 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…

  17. Make assembling a book from already existing ind files more user friendly.

    Going through all the pagination requirements in each document in the book is crazy. Upfront should be options to pick and sync a style, create book page numbering with chapter/sections starting on odd pages, blank pages added or removed as necessary. A series of dialog question should suffice.

  18. Table

    Hello, it would be nice to be able to energize a table that allows for example to change a price in a single operation when you have a brochure or catalog in several languages. A bit like Excell with his dynamic crossovers. Cordial greetings.

  19. 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?

  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
