  1. Colour picker

    Bring back the old Eyedropper tool, or make it an option.. The RGB one is pretty useless when working in print.

  2. 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.

  3. Make colour space CMYK not RGB!

    Since InDesign is used for printing out things, having the option to change the colour space from RGB to CMYK would be great, as trying to select a colour using colours that aren't in the CMYK gamut is annoying as heck

  5. Same color management in all adobe product

    This will be a great feature for simplicity and collaborative work.

    Actually, each program have a different system for choose color, and I'm sure you can improve that with give the same logical and features in all program.
    Import photoshop palet in Indesign or Illustrator and vice versa...
    Add the Color them Tool in photoshop and Illustrator...and maybe why not in After Effect and Premiere...
    Sure you can do something great and identical in all your great products, even if you have not need CMJN/Pantone etc.. colors in video projects.

  8. Stop Giving a Fill Color When Using the Line Tool.

    My OCD makes me switch the fill color (when using the line tool) to No Color. It would be great if there was no fill color when using the line tool.

  9. Make gradients faster

    1. Sélect Colors or frame Colors (2 or more if it's possible)
    2. Right clic or using shortcuts
    3. Made the gradient directly in the swatches or in a Group
    4. The gradient is made in order the colors are selected

    I think this feature can save time and made easier the way to do gradients

  11. The current Pantone Plus Color swatches (Color Bridge in particular) are not being updated when the Adobe software updated with updates

    The Pantone Swatches do not update when updating Adobe software in the cloud. And updating with Pantone Color Manager is completely inane.

    I have the most recent update for Adobe (InDesign CC Release 2017.1, and a build of 12.1.0.56 x64) and have loaded the most recent Pantone Color Manager to update the Pantone Plus Color Bridge colors (i started with one color library... updating all libraries would take at least a half day)

    After updating:
    1. I can no longer search for colors as I used to, so I manually have to scroll through the whole list to find the…

  14. gradient improvements when clicking on single color

    On gradient palette, it could be useful to double double clicking on a pattern to change its color with a popup. Something like Illustrator or Photoshop
