  1. Swatch Grouping

    The Color Group function is really useful, but it only works in the creation phase if you select multiple colours. There's no obvious way to add a colour to a group after it's been created - there's no contextual menu option, there's no palette menu option, and seemingly, you can't drag and drop it into the folder, which is counterintuitive as this is something users do all the time with Layers. Similarly, color groups should function the same way inside the CC Libraries palette. There should be a shortcut to add any selected Swatch or Color Group to the current…

  2. Reopen color theme floating palettes

    I have a workbook/training document that has sections, and each section uses a different color scheme. I used the Color Theme tool to create the different color themes for the various sections. But with each new theme, I lost the preceding floating palette. It would be so helpful to be able to reopen a color theme floating palette that is based on a theme you saved in the Swatches panel. It would be more convenient to drag the floating palette around the screen (near to the objects where you want to apply fill or stroke) than to have to undock,…

  3. Replace white background color with transparency

    Quark X Press is able to replace the white background color of a placed TIFF image with transparency - this is the only feature I miss in InDesign.

  5. More swatches in the program by default

    Include more color swatches that are always in the program by default, so you don't have to download and then import swatches to get basic things like shades of grey... Just provide all the color options available in illustrator.

  7. White spot

    not only in indesign, but in the entire Adobe suite, I require that it be possible to have a white spot color. This means being able to assign a white color that also allows the overprint definition. At the moment only the competition allows it.

  8. Option for Overprint to apply to black text only (not graphics) by default

    It would be great to have two options in Preferences for how overprint behaves.
    Appearance of Black Objects: Overprint Swatch at 100% (tick or untick)
    Appearance of Black Text: Overprint Swatch at 100% (tick or untick)

    I spend a ton of time correcting black on graphics before printing files and it can be quite fiddly at times with illustrations. This would save so much time + printing errors when I miss stuff!

  10. Color Pallet: add a Shade slider (percent of black mixed) for selected swatch (just like tint slider but with black)

    In the color Pallet please add a Shade slider which adds a percentage of black to the selected swatch. It would act just like tint slider, which adds a percentage of white to the color swatch, except the Shade slide controller would add black.

    This would also need a new type of Shade swatch perhaps.

  12. Please add back Pantone colors. We are paying for it through subscription!

    We, (Us designers and print brokers), all pay for a monthly subscription to the creative suite. Its a shame that Adobe cannot come to some sort of agreement to use the STANDARD of color based over the decades. Maybe if Adobe carried a basic set and then, if users wanted the entire pantone library, they could have it as a separate subscription add on. Just Saying.

  13. Load Swatches - Add an option to overwrite existing same name swatches

    Load Swatches - Add an option to overwrite existing same name swatches, rather than simply renaming the incoming ones. Or an option to rename the existing swatches instead. It amounts to the same thing and would have saved a bit of time on a job I just did.

  14. Option to select pre-loaded colour palette .ase file at new document stage

    At the new document phase of indesign, would be great to have a feature where you can drop in pre saved colour palettes, which you can then select based on document / brand and they then load with the new document.

  16. Option to convert colours to process when importing links

    I work with files from numerous territories, so sometimes I import vector logos or illustrations and they have spot colours included in them, either by accident or the other territory has used a spot colour and my client doesn't want to. Could we have a way that InDesign can show a warning when importing new assets so that I can decide whether to convert all colours to process before dropping into my document? Or maybe have an additional warning box that allows me to convert before I export to PDF? This would remove production errors and delays at printing stage…

  17. Find/Change - Colour - Selected items?

    So, thought I would use this Find/Change - Colour to change all the colours of text/strokes/fills on a page in a college prospectus I am designing (each curriculum area has a different colour).

    There is no 'Selected items' in the search area. Only Document or All Documents. Wouldn't be so bad if it started on the page you was on, but no, it starts from page 1 every time making this potentially useful feature useless to me for this problem.

    Can I please request an option to add 'Selection' and or 'Current Page'.

    Thanks for your help.

  20. Add more than 1 color swatch at a time to CC Libraries

    I'd like to add a group of color swatches in one quick instead of one by one. It would save me a lot of time!
