  1. Save As location

    Right now the Save As location seems to be the PREVIOUS folder location where I saved a file.
    However, in other programs like Photoshop, the default location goes to the same folder as opened file.
    Consulted help center and got no solution other than rerouting every time I save as a file. PLEASE also make the default Save As location in InDesign to the same location as opened file!! I'm working on like 3 or more projects at the same time and have to reroute the save location all the time! In fact I accidentally overwrote an important working file…

  2. Table of contents update

    how can I insert the same title to my book's table of contents which I did on two different pages? (table of content is divided into two text frames) Is it possible to do it automatically? I think it's not possible so I propose to add this option to new version of InDesign. It would be great!

  3. Same Features like Affinity Publisher and Photo

    I wish to have similar features on InDesign as it is possible with Affinity.

    • Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign merge to one programm
    • Much faster handling (zooming, starting programm,
    • Simpler interface
    • and so much more

  5. Fitting Content - Define Zoom Percentage

    Add a feature to let me define the Zoom percentage instead of just the standard selections. Example, an 8.5x11 from a manual has margins. If the manual needs to be printed smaller, having to place every page into a defined size requires touching every page instead of just enlarge/reduce to a specific size.

  6. command "delete hidden layers"

    a function/command "delete hidden layers" (all hidden layers with one click/command) should be timesaving …!

    Like in Photoshop CC "Ausgeblendete Ebenen löschen".

    Thank You.

  7. Omit text boxes [None] check box in Preflight > Bleed/Trim Hazzard Warning

    Text boxes with [None] background like footers and page numbers are always showing up in the warning list. This would save a bunch of time checking each one or disregarding and having an error on press.

  8. Want to check if Adobe has been 'hacked' because I've received an unusual email supposedly from an Adobe ID Product Manager

    After sitting in the phone cue for an hour because there are no appropriate option choices for 'contact Adobe about suspicious emails asking for detailed questions about my account'. I thought I'd post it here because the email claims to have links to the InDesign team. Email content raises a number of security flags which require IT in my company to check it out and as I am IT, I tried - but if you can't get through to anyone at Adobe and there's nowhere to deal with security issues in the 'contact' section of Adobe, then guess I will…

  9. Rename Hyperlink

    Add the 'rename hyperlink' option to the 'edit hyperlink' window. I find it essential to identify hyperlinks by their names. But I often edit them. After I edit a link, and I want to rename it to better identify it, I have to open a new window just to rename it. This is quite inefficient.

  10. Bigger Icons

    I really wish that this software was more user-friendly. The icons should be bigger and clearly labeled. Like the buttons at the self-checkout at the grocery store.

  13. Keep an object in place when aligning with another object

    In Illustrator if you have two objects selected, and then alt-click one, the object that was alt-clicked will stay in place when you align them together. Having this feature in InDesign would be helpful

  14. trial

    I have not been able to productively use the 7 day trial period due to my delayed preparations of the contents of a brochure design.
    I would like to request a brand new 7 days credit to give Indesign a shot to accomplish my task.
    Very truly yours,

  15. Changes to the Interactive>Tab Order dialog

    I do many interactive forms with hundreds of fields, and use InDesign for most of its creation, as it's easier for me to create customized filed names. It's just very difficult to rearrange tab order with the inability to see more of the interactive names and needing to scroll up/down in such a small area.

    I would like to see this dialog more like many of the regular windows (layers, paragraph styles, etc.). Perhaps also a way to link right to where the field is in the document (like the links window).

    Would make this task MUCH easier.

  16. Hyperlinks Problems

    There used to be options to remove hyperlinks and to have the option to open hyperlinks in a new tab. After the most recent update it seems these options are now not available. Whats the deal?

    InDesign flickers white and all artwork/text disappears. I have to reposition my window to make it reappear. It keeps happening every few minutes. I have completely removed all Adobe CC products and reinstalled, as well as deleted my preferences and work spaces. Please help.

  20. Add a new menu item to the menu bar: Indexes

    Ideally, indexing should have a menu all its own. The fact that it's only got a panel that opens from the Windows menu suggests it's an afterthought, and it's very limiting, because it means I can't create my own keyboard shortcuts for indexing functions.
