  1. Expand the custom marks (.mrk) usability and documentation.

    We are able to create custom marks files (.mrk) but I have not found much documentation. Detailed documentation would go a long way especially with a few examples. I would also like an easier way to create these files without so much trial an error (GUI).

    I would like to create black only registration, page info and crop marks. Additionally, the ability to adjust spread pages fold marks offset and the ability to create center lines on the pages in the bleed area would be great.

  2. import image direct form google Pinterest

    Hi, I make al lot off style sheets in inDesign, also moodboards. Normally I import the image directly from google or Pinterest. But right now this does not work any more. I'm importing the text page of the image, so now I have to save all the files and then I can import them in my file. Help it will save a lot of time for me :)

  3. Multipaste

    There's a plug in called Multipaste where when you copy an object and go to edit, an additonal option is 'Multipaste'.

    This allows you to quickly paste the same object in the same place on a selection of pages that you specify.

    This doesn't work anymore, so it would be great if it were a feature of ID.

    I know you can put something on master page, but this doesn't work for the pasteboard, and you then have to go through each page and command click to make it editable.

    Sometimes I just want to paste exactly the same object…

  4. Allow Pages to be named and exported with names - like photoshop artboards

    Where the pages are numbered in the pages panel, please could you allow them to be named and exported with those names - in the same way the Photoshop allows with artboards?

    This would save so much time for working on projects that have 100s of pages that all need specific names. I would need this in InDesign as the ability to relink images is a super useful feature for my projects.

    Thanks!

  5. Provide an option to see items in the pasteboard area while the document is set to the preview mode.

    I sometimes use the pasteboard to create simple items I want to place in my document later. It would be helpful to be able to access those items without having to switch view modes. Suggesting 3 options - normal, preview, and this one.

  6. The hope of developing a new vertical effect of CJk text

    (If you only want to read the core content, please go directly to the end of this article)

    (This document is designated to be delivered to Adobe Japan)

    ————————

    Dear Adobe Japan:

    Thank for your attention and helping. On behalf of my region, I would like to make a request boldly to your company about the new effect of vertical typesetting.

    The existing versions of indesign equipped with CJK typesetter and applicable to East Asia have only one text arrangement direction for vertical text arrangement - the first column inherited is on the right, from right to left from ancient…

  7. Change gutter color

    Please let us change the color of the gutter guides. The Cyan hurts my eyes and is annoying in layout. I can find options to change everything else but the color of the gutter guides.

  9. Ability to adjust opacity of guides - rows and columns

    Users should be able to adjust the opacity of guides, enabling greater emphasis to be given to chosen elements. For example a rectangle frame tool can stand out more than the rows and columns used, otherwise it is very messy and impossible to sometimes use both at the same time.

  10. ページを視覚的に分けたい

    私は複数の人々の作品を一つにまとめて本を出す事が多いです。ですが、人数が多ければ多いほど配置換えしにくいので困っています。一応セクションで分けてはいますが『アイコンに色を付けられる』『色タブを付けられる』など視覚的に一発で分かる方法が欲しいです。

  11. Add the ability to select a parent for the following page or spread.

    In the "Parent Options" dialog box (on Windows, though I'm sure it's pretty consistent cross-platform) there's the options for the current spread.

    What if we could add a limitation that allowed you to specify the parent style for adding pages?

    For example, if I had a chapter head page, having it be able to automatically switch to the standard body parent would be a time saver for that highly repetitive task.

    The option would be after "Number of Pages" and probably say something like "Parent for Following Page" with a selector for the existing parents, and another selector with "Following…

  13. Apply gabarits with conditions

    Hello, after a long research, I notice that there is no possibility to apply gabarits according to rules (presence of text, grep, presence of image, percentage of filled text block, presence of style, etc.) to specific pages (on the first/last page, between some pages, grep-like operation, etc.). This could be done by giving several templates to a page and giving rules to choose which one to apply (with an option to choose the pages dynamically).
    For my part, I'm desperately looking for a dynamic and automated way to hide the folio/page number when it's an empty (no text) or almost…

  14. Handling of composite fonts with the same name but different settings in InDesign Japanese version

    When multiple documents containing composite fonts with the same name and different settings are opened at the same time, the composite fonts in the documents opened later are forcibly duplicated and renamed. As a result, the number of composite fonts increases countlessly, which is very complicated to manage.

    Please assign a unique ID to each composite font temporarily and load it into the application, so that composite fonts with the same name but different settings can coexist in the application.

  20. Reshaping the edges of the whole book/page(s).

    I know there are ways to trim edges of frames. I need you to apply this feature to the Whole book/pages or create a better one so that when applying for a new custom document, amongst the settings where there are inches, bleeds, gutter etc there'd be a setting option for reshaping the edges of new document. This is not about reshaping picture frames, this is about reshaping the edges of book or pages itself not the contents. Please I hope you understand my request.
