  1. Spelling: "Ignore All" does not hold when reopening saved file

    Spelling: "Ignore All" for items one doesn't want to put in the user dictionary, like proper names, citation references, etc. These one-time decisions are not sustained after saving and closing the ID file and starting again opening it the next time. Once these decisions are made, they should be saved with the file save and the user should not have to keep redoing them.

  2. 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.

  3. Tailoring Fonts for Languages within Multilingual Documents

    Sometimes large documents that have been translated into other languages will still have English written in them (company names, brand names, stuff that original creator wants to remain in English). Many times the English text will use a specific font, but that font does not support other alphabets/characters that appear in other languages, so the unsupported text comes up as red boxes.

    There is no feature in InDesign that allows you to correctly identify the foreign language (all the red boxes) and lets you pick a different font WITHOUT changing the font for English. The only way to do this…

  5. new document palette

    The new layout palette window, starting new document, is very very slow to pen, and, while open, is very difficult to read. Older version are the best (version Cs6 for example) very simple and fast to open. Please return to older release!!!

  6. Custom page attributes to use as text variables

    It would be very helpful to have an option to add specific attributes to pages, such as a name, category, and labels.
    I would then like to use these attributes as text variables.
    Right now the only text variable you can define from the page window is Section Marker.

    Also, it would be very helpful if the categorization would be also visual in the pages window.

  7. Open pages of a pdf file in a single InDesign file

    I always face this problem where I need to open a single page of a pdf. file to do amendment. It’s difficulty when my client doesn’t have the working file (indd). I hope adobe is allowing me to open all pages of a pdf. file in a single InDesign.

  8. control blank document options when making new doc

    When i go to create a new document, I look at presets but it continually shows me 'legal' etc (american sizes) which I've never used instead of A3, which I use often. I don't understand. WHy can't it either remember or let us organise them?

  10. Numbering Pages

    I wish you could make it easy to number pages - as easy as on Word. It is so complicated on InDesign and I have failed to make it work. As a result, I have had to publish books without numbered pages, and that is frustrating for all.

  11. Grid Page View

    An option to view the pages within a single document in a grid layout, rather than just one continuous column of pages one below the other. It would be a valuable tool for designers that wish to view a lot of their pages at once, rather than having to continuously scroll up & down the many pages of an InDesign document.

  12. Show colour settings for new documents

    Hi there.
    Please add a drop down menu to choose colour intent when making new documents. By default, print presets are CMYK in colour profile and transparency blend space. Web is RGB for both.
    I use Print presets all the time for new documents. But I want those page sizes in RGB colour mode and blend space.
    It would be informative to the user to have the colour settings of any document or template shown and user selectable when they are setting up a new document.
    See attached pic
    CHeers,
    Jeremy

  15. Option to replace links with same name but different format

    When relinking a file, ID is able to check and relink all other links in a folder. However, I regularly have to use the relink feature to replace .tif dummies with finalized .psd files. The problem is that relink includes the extension of files in the name, so a tickable option to tell ID to change extension according to the first file you click so it then relinks all files with same name but the desired extension instead would save a lot of time.

    (Unrelated, but having a corner to drag the typing field when posting ideas would be nice.…

  16. Keep things in the grey area from moving

    When I put objects in the grey area of the workspace or use a guidelines across a spread and then add pages before it all moves. There is a reason that i've put guidelines on a certain page and objects next to a certain page, I might need them again and I certainly don't want them to be moved all over the place whenever i add pages.

  17. Arrange Documents icon

    The "Arrange Documents" icon in the Title bar is missing, I would love to have it back. It was extremely helpful. Now it wastes time to switch that from the Menu...

  18. Custom Signature Sizes

    We desperately need to be able to create custom signature sizes for 2-up Perfect Bound booklets. Right now the only options are 4, 8, 12, 16, and 32, which is extremely limiting. Adding blank pages to fill out extra signatures is a garbage work around leading to an unprofessional product.
