  1. pasting to layer

    When pasting, it would be nice to be able to not have to stop to select layer when there is only one layer open and simultaneously have to stop to address error message saying prev layer used is locked or hidden etc. I frequently just want stuff pasted into doc and don't care at the time which layer it falls on and do not always wish to organize as I paste etc.

    the same principal applies to dragging from cc library too.

  3. Text Variable "Running Header" to work across indvidual Indesign files within a Indesign Book

    "Running Header" working across multiple indesign files within a book would allow a more modular approach to book production: common elements such as headers and footers can changed globally within a book, that shares some of its content i.e. individual indesign files, with another book but whose headers and footers must be different.

  5. Find/replace objects according to their X/Y coordinates

    Dealing with multiple InDesign books comprising thousands of pages, I would need to find all objects located at (or, preferably, within) certain X/Y coordinates, so as to automatically reposition them. You've made halfway to this in CC2018, implementing the size properties in the find/replace dialog box.

  6. Add an option to show Master Page data in the links palette

    Add options for showing Master Page info to the long list of item in the Links Palette options. Should definitely include "Master Page Prefix" and "Master Page Name", might as well include "Based On" and "Number of pages" while you're at it.

  7. Fix the printing bug for text-heavy documents

    In the 2018 InDesign, the text heavy pages won't print. Even, sometimes, if I save as a simple PDF, strip color, change fonts, etc. I've then tried to save it as an .idml file but that won't work now, either. By the way, I could print it fine last week—until I upgraded to 2018's version. I want to revert to 2017 but it has vanished. This is a bug in the new InDesign that needs fixing right now.

  8. Multiplier le nobre des pages d'une planche

  9. allow to navigate between book files with PgUp and PgDn

    F.e. hitting PgDn at end of opened document which is in book should open next document in book on 1st page or switch to 1st page of next document if already opened.
    Obviously it should works with PgUp at start of document.

    Just like it works in Framemaker.

  10. full folder information when opening an existing InDesign file

    When I try to open an existing InDesign document from inside the InDesign program I don't get the full range of folders (1). This does not change when going to an upper level and into the detail again despite there is an original InDesign file in one of the hidden folders. I have to go to Windows explorer (2 and 3) to start the file.

  11. New Document dialog: trim safety margins

    Print ads have trim, bleed, and safety margins on the inside of the page. Add the ability to define the safety margin in the New Document dialog. It would be better than using Margins and Columns.

  12. Duplicate and Offset

    I would like a way to override the keyboard shortcuts for "Duplicate and Offset." The shortcuts (option + arrow) are all too easy to hit while trying to navigate through text (using similar shortcuts). Many default shortcuts can be changed or deleted under Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts, but this set is not among them. For some reason the Mac OS doesn't permit shortcut changes to InDesign, either!

  14. Applying Master Pages

    I work with 1000+ pages at a time in InDesign and it's a pain to apply the Left / Right masters.

    I always have to fire up Excel and make a long string with odd and even numbers, just so I can paste it in the "Apply master to pages" box.

  16. navigation

    It would be great if InDesign could have back and forward buttons, similar to those in Visual Studio. I constantly have to scroll up and down for work and it would be great if there was simply a back button that would send me to the spot I was before.

  17. Link to a specific page on a PDF or Excel Workbook

    I get output in the form of either an Excel Workbook or a PDF with multiple pages.

    One task I have is to assemble a book from these unsorted output files.

    It would be AWESOME if we could link content from Excel Workbook tabs and specific PDF pages so when I get output, I could just put it all in a folder and InDesign would be smart enough to link everything in the book design from the previous year.

    Annual publications for TONS of folks would go faster if we didn't have to paste the data page by page every…

  18. Alphabetize document presets for new document

    We use many templates for our dies. The dies are identified by die number, and InDesign lists them by creation order when opening the "Saved" tab. Since we have over a thousand dies, putting them in numerical order would really help...

  19. Merge mulitple pages together to create one page. Clients design each panel as the same size rather than having a short fold in panel

    Would like to be able to combine pages into one page. Clients are sending files (such as a 3 fold brochure) where each panel is the same size, not taking into account that the fold-in panel should be shorter. Seems difficult to make a shorter page as the page seems to be off and its not an easy fix.

    Need more info  ·  Anonymous responded

    Hi Daniel,

    Thanks for sharing this feature suggestion.

    I didn’t understand this request, will it be possible for you to share some more details on this. What does “double the amount of line make” mean here. If you have any example where you can show this that would really help.

    Thanks
    Javed
