  1. InDesign Cannot Set Actual Text (Accessibility)

    InDesign Cannot Set Actual Text

    InDesign has no way of setting actual text. This can only be done in PDF. Actual text is set when acronyms are used. Access technologies such as screen readers cannot properly read acronyms such as USA. They voice them as words, like "Youusah." Actual text has to be set for the document to be read correctly. This is a painstaking process that requires InDesign users to learn PDF Remediation, a highly specialized skillset that is typically outside the role of the average Graphic Designer. Currently, the process for setting actual text in Acrobat is as…

  2. DATA MERGE

    Importing an image via .CSV or .TXT file requires the use of an absolute @IMAGE link, it would be very convenient, for file sharing purposes, for this link to recall the files from the folder where the INDESING file resides, using a relative @IMAGE link, using a relative @IMAGE link.

    EXAMBLE:

    Volumes:BK2:PACK HD:CLIENT:PROJECT 1:PACK:LINK:file.ai (ABSOLUTE LINK)

    LINK/file.ai (RELATIVE LINK)

  3. Indesign 2024 not working with window-snapping apps

    I recently upgraded to InDesign 2024. I use BetterSnapTool to arrange my app-windows in order to have a efficient and practical workflow. But InDesign 2024 does not work with BetterSnapTool (BST) or any other window-snapping apps due to this reason I received from the BST support:
    "Unfortunately all window manager apps on macOS are affected by this, Adobe has broken their window resizing behavior in their recent updates. Their products do not respond correctly to window resizing requests using the macOS Accessibility API anymore. As of now I don't think there is anything I can do to fix this. If…

  4. Show Preflight error if there are objects on pasteboard

    It would be really helpful to have a feature in Preflight profile settings to alert you if there are any items left on the pasteboard.

    I often have to supply files for translation and any items left on the pasteboard may either incur extra translation charges or cause unnecessary confusion at back end. I know there is a script to remove pasteboard items, but I would prefer seeing that red dot as I often handle other people's files in which the objects may be in the oddest of places, such as far to the side and out of view even…

  7. Indesign should be fully compatible with Powerpoint

    Clients are demanding more and more presentations made on Powerpoint than reports made in Indesign. Sometimes, even reports made in Powerpoint. Designers like me are spending much more time nowadays on Powerpoint than Indesign.

    Adobe will lose those designers.

    Indesign must be fully compatible with PowerPoint.

  8. Emoji for Print: Update EmojiOne Color and Support COLR Fonts

    I work for a large book publisher and more and more books (especially YA) include a lot of emoji. To the point that having to replace all emoji with art is a tedious process. For workflow efficiency and for accessibility issues, we utilize emoji fonts and convert them to outline, then color correct for print (grayscale or CMYK). That way we can support diverse emoji and preserve the unicode values so that characters are maintained as manuscripts go from Word to InDesign.

    Right now, emoji fonts that support shading and skin tone/hair color options come in two flavors--OpenType SVG and…

  9. Google search in Indesign

    Hi!

    I want to be able to make a google-search from within an indesign-article/-text, by marking a word/phrase, right click and end up in the web browser with a search result based on my marking in Indesign. That couldn’t be to difficult to script, but a huge help.

    All the best!

  10. Enable the deletion of button rollover state once it's been created

    Once you've created a button AND applied a rollover state, you can't currently delete it. I know you can "hide" it, and I know you can convert the button back to an object, but I want the ability to delete the rollover state once it's been created. Similar to a multi-state object, it would be great if we can delete the rollover state (like you can do with individual states in an MSO).

  17. interactive form checkmark

    When building an interactive form with a check list, would be nice to have the checkmark customizable either by font or upload my own icon. The standard one used is not the prettiest.
