  1. Add scrubby zoom (to all device interfaces including windows not just Mac)

    Please, please add this feature since it's very tiring to use weird zooming options every time I'm not using photoshop or illustrator. Marquee zoom is functional but it's irritating and time-consuming.

  3. Add full text markup options to document review (online version)

    When sending a document for review through CC online, my reviewers have very limited edit/markup options (add comment, draw, add pin). Can you add all the text markup options available in the "Comment" tool of the desktop version of Acrobat Pro? For example, insert text, add note to replace text, strikethrough, callout boxes, etc. This is valuable to me because it is much easier to read/understand the edits if they're clear text edits, not just comments in a box. Thank you!

  4. Live Preflight reporting a false error with OpenType Type 1 fonts

    InDesign's Live Preflight will wrongly flag an OpenType Type 1 (PostScript flavored) font as invalid when the font appears in a linked graphic.

    To recreate:
    1. Create an InDesign Preflight Profile
    2. Set it to flag Type 1 fonts as Font Type Not allowed.
    3. Create a new InDesign document.
    4. Add text using an OpenType Type 1 font.
    5. Turn on the preflight.
    The preflight will not signal an error. This is expected and correct.
    6. Now export a PDF of the document created.
    7. Create a new InDesign document.
    8. Place the PDF as a linked graphic into…

  5. Show traditional version names in CC Desktop

    In the CC Desktop app, when you are looking at Apps and seeing version numbers, it's confusing to users when you see InDesign v16, which is CC2021, or v15, which is 2020. If the labeling could be InDesign 2021 v16.0, it would be less confusing to users. We have a huge number of users in our company and when we make the switch to each new version as a group, people look at v15 and don't know what that means. For InDesign, in particular, we tend to lag a while while our plugins are updated for the newer versions. So…

  7. Show/hide buttons

    We are working on interactive brochures with indesign but it is really difficult. If you have a page with a high number of buttons it is almost impossible deal with them because the window ("show/hide buttons") to control them is too small, you can't resize it and you can't change the position of the elements inside it...

    Could you please solve this problem?

  8. Increase the number of files available under the "Open recent" menu

    Please increase the current maximum of 30 in Preferences > File Handling > Number of Recent Items to Display. Some of us open dozens of files every day so 60 or 100 would be more convenient.

  9. Break link to imported text or table

    Option to create links when placing text or spredsheet files is great, but usually at the last moment it would be very handy to be able to completely brake link to one or more word etc documents even if they are missing. Best way would be able to sort all by document types on link window, select them and then break links. No embed etc. Just break it comletely.

  11. Chemin bibliothèque locale Indesign

    Hello,
    Would it be possible to have the address locally in the "library" panel, as in the link panel? Indeed, CC libraries are handy, but 1 plugin in particular does not support them (EasyCatalog), and it is not practical to find local libraries when you have several of them.
    Thanks in advance.

  12. Urgent support needed for .webp images in InDesign & Photoshop

    With the latest MacOS update Safari is now allowing .webp images. As a design studio we do LOTS of moodboards, research docs etc. gathering 100s of images at a time. Now I realise half need to be manually resaved — and in Preview of all places because not only are they not supported in InDesign, but Photoshop either. Urgent help needed!!!! This is adding so much time to my day.

  14. File Lock auto-release

    We have multiple editors working remotely, with a policy of locking a file while working on it. But we have a repeated problem of files being left locked at the end of the day, meaning others are unable to work on them. Please add a pop-up on closing a file which asks "do you wish to unlock?".

  15. Ability to track large file sizes cause

    It would be a useful feature to allow users to be able to track down what in their documents is causing their file sizes to be inflated. The feature would be an audit of what is in the document and how it is directly linked to the final file size of the document. This would really help in keeping bloat in the files down to minimum, or choose alternative ways to configure files.

  17. Interactive PDF/Form Function

    Interactive PDFs - Better functions for Setting Tab Order.

    Being able to reorder interactive items in InDesign is a great feature (instead of doing so in Acrobat) but there is room for growth.

    1. Having the ability to track the selections you're reordering would be nice. For example, you select an item in the box and it selects or highlights those items on your page so you know for sure what you're reordering.

    2. You could use the active document to select an item and have the Set Tab Order box open/working to reorder.

    3. Having the ability to expand the "Set Tab…

  20. Option to remove empty frames in Data Merge

    Empty image frames placed inline in a text field will throw off the alignment if the text field is centered. (This happens when you're going to have a row of, say, icons and different pages will have different numbers of icons)

    It would be excellent to have an checkbox in the Options tab of the Data Merge dialog box to "Delete empty frames" upon merging.
