  5. Adding a separate pages or extract pages as individual pages feature.

    Working in a newspaper environment, our layout clerk sets up our paper in sections. If our A Section is 12 pages, she sets it up as a 12 page section and dummies the advertisements on the pages. When our editorial staff grabs the pages to do their jobs, they need to be able to work on each page individually, not as one full document. It would be extremely beneficial (without having to "MOVE PAGES" or copy and paste) if our layout clerk could separate or export the document as individual indesign pages. Our layout and editorial departments are currently transitioning…

  6. Number & nombre

    Hey Guys, you should'nt translate NUMBER by NUMÉRO in French for exemple NUMBER of column in menu Pages → Margins and Columns ) but by NOMBRE. NOMBRE is the right word in this case.

    Thank you so much.

    Regards

    Ben

  7. Change

    I would like to draw the Chapter Title in a text variable from the File Info rather than trying to use the First on page/last on Page and setting a Paragraph style. It would be much faster, easier and more reliable to let us grab a field from File Info. I can get the Chapter File to update but then it won't appear in the TOC and the work arounds show that the software simply does not want to work the way one would expect. I work in a variety of other software packages and they ALL allow us to…

  9. Copy Artboard Size across CC apps

    I do this a lot: I have a diecut in Illustrator and need to create the layout in InDesign. I have a little OCD (like most DTP/Artworkers :)) ) so I create the diecut in Illustrator and then fit the artboard size to the whole art. When I start creating the layout in InDesign, I create the document using the same page size as the Illustrator file. And I do this several times a day. :)

    It would be great to have an option/button in Artboard Tool (Illustrator) / Page Tool (InDesign) to copy the size and be able to…

  12. Please add the possibility to create the page height below 73px.

    Especially for the design of web banners sometimes a smaller page height is important.
    Despite frame distances of 0px and web setting an error message appears with a page height of 72px or lower.

  14. It would be great to have a dashboard feature within InDesign so you view all open/tabbed documents all at once in one window,

    It would be great to have a dashboard feature within InDesign so you view all open/tabbed documents all at once in one window. Ideal when you are resizing a lot of web or print ads.
    You could activate by hitting F5 function key.

  15. Major problem with image links

    When I click on an image, the link in the links-window does not show. Note: there's nothing embedded. I'm encountering this all the time and it's very very time-consuming. How can this major problem exist in a software where placing images is really what you do with it all day layouting?
    I really wonder what we pay the monthly fees for when even the most basic stuff is far from working properly.
    Why is Indesign CC detoriating compared to CS6, though we pay more money?
    What are the Updates and the cloud really for?

    Why this is valuable to us…

  16. InDesign not recognizing files

    FILE OPEN does not recognize/show files present on hard drive. Files are present with EXPLORER and other ADOBE CC apps e.g. Photoshop, Bridge
    super annoying!

    Renaming files, rebooting, restarting - nothing
    Creative Cloud APP shows no updates available - InDesign 12.1.0.56 x64

  18. 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.
