  2. 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.

  3. Skip story in spell-check

    Spell-checking a document with Lorem Ipsum (placeholder text) can be a nightmare or sometimes impossible. It would be amazing if you could either ignore placeholder text OR skip a story completely.

  4. 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..

  5. Show Import Options when Dragging File from Finder

    When Placing a file, there is an option to show Import Options. This is helpful for inserting a select range of pages. It would be helpful if this same option was available when dragging a PDF file from my Desktop/Finder. Often times, I will have my finder window open which contains my projects home directory. Simply dragging the PDF into the InDesign document is much quicker than having to go through the process of locating in File->Place route.

  6. Please, please, please increase the overall stability of InDesign.

    I’ve lost count of the number of times functionality has gone missing (ie: unable to proportionally scale using key commands and my mouse, sliding elements vertically or horizontally without changing either their “x” or “y” coordinate (respectively), etc.

    I would suggest (and I am absolutely serious about this) that Adobe take 3 months off from issuing any updates to the product and have all your techs, engineers and coders work out as many functionality issues a possible to improve the stability of the product. Don’t get me wrong, it is a fabulous product (and you have no real competition except…

  11. Indesign Autosave

    An autosave feature in Indesign would be a great addition. This could be added under the file handling menu with some options for it. A slider that allows you to set the intervals of the autosave. It would be a great addition to the auto recovery, you'd be surprised how often people forget to hit save or close it and accidentally not save when prompted.

  12. Data Merge > Create Tagged PDF checkbox

    On Data Marge > Export to PDF just let us select the "Create Tagged PDF".

    For example, I have 1300 records, an 8 page document template and have to export 1300x 8pp uniquely named PDF files - files names from data.

    Currently have to:
    1. run the merge in groups of 100 records otherwise InDesign will hang
    2. create tagged PDFs from the 13x 800pp InDesign files (50 minutes per 100)
    3. combine PDFs
    4. create bookmarks from content
    5. split by bookmark structure

    Points 1, 2 and 3 could be combined by simply allowing "Create Tagged PDF" and save…

  15. placing an .ai file with multiple art boards,

    When placing an .ai file with multiple art boards, it would be an improvement if I could place by the art board name instead of number.

    Example A file may contain an art board that is CMYK or Spot. The thumbnail looks the same. Its a waste of time if I place the wrong art board.

    IT would make my work day more efficient and less frustrating.

  16. Add feature to Buttons and Forms

    In the Text Field, if there could be an option for auto scalable type, which would automatically scale while writing in a interactive PDF. This would allow the writer to write without exceeding the set text field, which could later be printed instead of hidden when printed, when the scrollable option is selected. The current options are set, scrollable or set font size. It would create a more dynamic set text field.
    Also a prompt description in the text field which disappears when writing.

  17. 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. 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

  20. Feature Request (or bug report) in InDesign directly

    When working, I get many ideas who to improve InDesign or what's missing or getting wrong in InDesign. And then I'd like to have a fast feature request form directly out of InDesign. But instead of this I getting forwarded to this forum and that's really to much time to search and the do a new topic.

    I'd like to have a real Adobe support-team! To interchange in an easy way (please no more these horrible mails: "I need more infos to the feature request" After drafting my wishes in the way the support will have, half an hour is…
