  3. Duplicate interactive buttons in Indesign

    InDesign Interactive buttons
    I have duplicate button names but I'm having a difficult time locating the duplicate. If I could use the Tabbing Order box to highlight the button on the page, it would save huge amounts of time! Thanks.

  4. When you issue a new version of ANY Adobe package keep the help text in synch

    It is a poor indicator of an organisations ability to manager Quality Control in it's software when it allows the hep text to fall behind the release cycle. Using the most recent version of CC Indesign, the Help text suggests that I am able to add a new page by using the pages panel. It further goes in to say that if it is NOT visible it will be in the Window menu. When I check the menu there is no such facility.

  5. Endnotes placement needs to be adjusted

    The way books work is that the notes to a chapter fall immediately after the end of the text, not on a new page. Please change this feature so that we can force the notes to a new page if that's how we want them, but they normally fall after the end of the text. Other than that, the dynamic endnotes feature will be nice when someone decides to add or delete notes.

  6. Choose page number when inserting a PDF

    When inserting a pdf into a frame box, it would be nice to be able to select which page number you'd like to insert (with a preview). Similar to when you open a PDF in illustrator.

  7. Create an hyperlink to a "not specific" file or folder with a generic name like "AAA*.pdf"

    To make an hyperlink to a “not specific” file or folder.
    For example:
    In the reference folder I can have a file named “TIM 111.pdf” or “TIM 222.pdf”.
    I would like to make a hyperlink like “TIM*.pdf” that opens the file that I have in the reference folder without specified the complete file name.

  8. free local installed viewer for mac amd win

    there should be a free locally installed mac and win viewer for indesign and photoshop files for sales people to view on inhouse secure servers.
    these files need to be on our server and not in a third party non DOD certified cloud server which are subject to cyberthreats.

  10. BUG? Random grey bars on screen in ID CC

    I'm trying out ID CC and opened an ID C6 file to test. There are grey bars that appear randomly on screen. Not in fit in window view but in any other view when zoomed. Please see attached screen shot of the grey bars.

    I'm using a 13" MacBook Pro (2017) with 16GB RAM. Under preferences, Display Performance is set to default and CPU Performance shows Compatible CPU and Monitor Detected.

    How to resolve this?

  14. Tools handling

    Instead of corner nodes which are used to resize the box, provide the easy option to user where ever they want hold the box edges to resize, it could be better to work with ID..

  15. Same shortcuts for all Adobe products (the most important one)

    A lot of shortcuts are totally different for each programm of adobe. This is confusing. I think the most important shortcuts should be always the same for each adobe programm

  16. Support for Microsoft SCUP

    We have invested very large in SCCM infrastructure to support Global distribution of client applications. To speed up distribution of Adobe product versions we have analyzed Adobe Update Server solution.
    Based on our global environment that would require an enormous investment create a Adobe Update Server at every site location.

    We would like Adobe to add support for Microsoft SCUM, that would speed up product distribution without very large investment.

  18. Smart button interfacing

    I had an idea which could be applied to all of the applications. Essentially the idea is for a 'smart' button.
    Often when I'm diving in and out of the interface I miss clicking on a button, sometimes repeatedly. What if the button had a 'snap to' effect, this could be set with a variable through preferences. It could be set to 1 pixel or 100.
    This could be toggled on and off utilising a short cut. So you could activate it for different methodologies. It could also be disabled completely.

    It would allow for faster and smoother interfacing. However…

  19. Option: make subsection headers not persist beyond their ends.

    For text variables for running headers/footers, the default behavior is as described in the help: "If there is no occurrence of the style on the page, the previous occurrence of the applied style is used." Not sure if this is a bug or a feature, but if you are using headers or footers for both sections and subsections, and some sections have subsections and some don't, then you get a header with the name of a subsection many pages back, even though it's not on the page. Having an option to turn off this persistence would make this feature work…

  20. Bug: XML w/Images Export (filename)

    Just discovered during XML w/images export that ID is converting images w/spaces in filenames to underscores (causing mismatches, XML itself is correct) — is this a bug? Using ID 13.0.1

    Btw - I know this is a feature request post, but I can't find an easy way to submit bugs!
