Data merge should include a "Next Record" feature, like Word has. I want to merge data into InDesign, but I don't want to duplicate text boxes or pages. I just want to put the placeholders wherever they need to go (like in a table) and merge the data without having a text box for every record.19 votes
Linux is more efficient and secure than Windows or macOS. It also often has greater hardware compatibility and resource management, which would be useful when dealing with large projects.
This would be valuable for many users seeking to get the most out of their hardware, or who work with 3D rendering tools best suited to Linux setups.
Adobe already has a Unix base with the macOS version - surely a Linux version isn't too much of a head-scratcher for the devs.19 votes
Link directly to charts and graph content which can be refreshed by updating the Excel link.
We often have to include graphical components in PDF's and it would be useful to have this feature to help improve workflow19 votes
Remove hyperlink: There is no simple convenient way to remove a hyperlink. When you check, you find, "Edit Hyperlink" or "Go to destination". So, you go to "Edit" and find the hyperlink field, with the only option to delete the hyperlink being the word/letter info of the link that's in the entire field. But then it won't let you do that, saying: "! Invalid Entry". So, you have to reenter the text you had hyperlinked, then delete the text with the hyperlink. Please add a menu line, in both "Text-Hyperlink" and right-mouse-button "Hyperlink" that says and does "Remove Hyperlink", along…19 votes
If you have InDesign CC 2019, when you select a Hyperlink and look in the Properties panel, you will see 3 buttons – ‘Remove Hyperlink’, ‘Edit Hyperlink’ and ‘Manage Hyperlink’.
Remove Hyperlink does what it says – it removes the hyperlink. However, it retains the applied Character Style which can be manually changed by clicking the [None] style in the panel.
Manage Hyperlink opens the Hyperlinks panel (if it’s closed) and Edit Hyperlink lets you edit it.
Hope this helps.

It's really inconvenient that I can't package a single page. I have to duplicate and delete the rest of page before I sent others.19 votes
To make the text contents of a document available for other users or applications one should be able to export the whole text (meaning every piece of text in the whole document. To a single text file (rtf or txt). Currently I am able to this with a plugin
(https://www.rorohiko.com/wordpress/indesign-downloads/text-exporter/) but I feel this should be within the scope of the program itself.19 votes
Working with long tables would be easier if find/change could be limited by cell style.
It would be even better if this find/change could include inserting text when there is nothing present in the cell.18 votes
Please, please, PLEASE update the Interactive Buttons and Forms functionality to include the ability to assign fonts to the Interactive Text Boxes.
Currently, I have to hope that the design I have made is 100% final approved before I can create the final Interactive PDF and spend additional time fine-tuning the fonts and paragraph alignment. If there are any changes after that, I have to go through the entire process again, losing valuable hours, depending on the length of the document. The ability to change only the font size is useless.
But if the functionality was included in the InDesign…18 votes
Creating templates greatly enhances document workflow creation. 2 things would make that even better:
Make the templates available on the splash screen/new document dialog - possibly under the saved tab.
Create a workflow that would allow for documents created from a template to update if the template is changed.18 votes
InDesign needs language support for Burmese (Myanmar). The corporation I am with is doing a lot of translation currently from English to Burmese and InDesign cannot render the characters correctly. We would also be happy to help fund getting this done as well as provide access to our Burmese translation team. No one wants to type set books and manuals in Microsoft Word...18 votes
InDesign 2020 includes a new text engine to support five new South East Asian languages: Thai, Burmese, Lao, Khmer, and Sinhala.
Your documents can now include text composed in these languages.
Hope you find this new feature useful in your work.
We’re marking this “Feature Request” as Completed.

Have InDesign remember the size of its application window from when it was last used and have it open in that same size the next time used. Illustrator and Photoshop already do this...18 votes
There should be conditions in data merge to include or exclude text based on the data in a record. For example, consider a set of business cards. Some users might have a Twitter handle or mobile number, some might not. Currently there is no way to omit empty fields and any text that might go with it, like an "M" and tab to prefix a mobile number and the line break after it. There should be a way to make that text conditional on whether the field is empty or what is in it.
e.g. IF @mobile<>"",M^t@mobile^p,,)
If the mobile…17 votes
I do a lot of books for Print and digital (pdf and ePub). End-notes have always been a problem, even now that Indesign supports End-notes.
For PDF and ePub export , in order to have the end-note reference clickable to redirect the user to it's corresponding end-note, then a link back again, I have to do this manually.
This is a massive manual process...
Let's say I have 100 end-notes. With each end-note reference, I have to place a new 'Hyperlink Destination' (for the return link)... That's going through the document, and placing 100 hyperlink destinations.
Then, I go to…

I don't know if this should go into the scripting category.
But could you please extent InDesign's capability or range when it comes to import or process data files, using structured data and Data Merge etc.

Why is GPU Support for Windows/Indesign not already running yet?
Other vendors have still good and fast running...
Plaes give soon a feedback when we can start with GPU Power in Indesign on Windows Systems...
Otherwise the way leads to other products, which support GPU (for ex. NVidia Quad) under Windows 10...

Magic Wand Tool is necessary for InDesign to select not only objects but this should also work according to InDesign to select the same fonts, and Styles of Objects, Paragraphs, Characters, and Tables, etc.
Magic Wand would be beneficial for the Selection of Fonts and their Size and Styles, just we will have to check/turn on the options according to required selections on the page, spread, or document, etc.15 votes
Photoshop has a history panel, extremely useful when undoing edits, or simply reviewing them, etc. This would be awesome in InDesign, and all other Adobe programs too.15 votes
