  2. Apply Master Pages Across Multiple Documents in a Book File.

    I use Book Files quite often in my job to create catalogs. These catalogs have multiple sections. It would be nice to be able to set up master pages one time that could be shared for all the documents that make up that book. Kind of like applying the same exact character or paragraph styles across multiple docs.

  5. Calculate total in interactive PDF

    It would be great to be able to allow different numerical fields to add up into a total.

  8. Color overlay FX

    Right now Indesign has almost every effect as Photoshop, except Color Overlay.

    Please add the Color Overlay effect to Indesign.

    Aside from the obvious benefits, this feature would make changing the color of bitmap fonts so much easier than having to recolor them in photoshop, and import them as images into indesign.

  9. Ignore Fit to frame options when replacing images whilst maintaining size

    When I have the option "Preserve Image Dimensions When Relinking" selected, I would like it to override any Auto Fit to Frame options.

    Right now I'm working on a catalogue that has several thousand pictures and all the frames are set to Auto Fit to Frame. When I relink the images (with the high resolution files) they all change size.

  10. Compare 2 indd files

    It is difficult to compare very huge indd files.
    It will be very useful if we are able to compare 2 indd files with minute precision including the styles, tags applied to text etc.
    A report should be generated of the change or atleast an UI where the differences can be compared between the 2 documents.

  11. The "undo" button: aka- Control + z

    Please allow to undo (ctrl + z) more than three times. It's frustrating to not be able to go back more than three times, especially when you're working on a longer document and you have to close out of it because InDesign won't let you fix something you made four corrections ago.

  12. Merge index page entries

    Indexing often end up looking like this:

    Smith, John 37, 38, 39.

    It's tedious to have to make the first entry be for the next three pages and delete the other two. Why not have a menu option to "Merge consecutive pages." It could be run near the end of the indexing process when the page breaks are unlikely to change.

    Even better would be an option to for consecutive page entries to create a new entry that makes the first the start of the indexing and the last the end of it. That'd keep the range right even when…

  13. Radically improve indexing efficiency

    This is a general suggestion. Indexing is one of the most tedious, time-consuming processes in ID. Look for ways to make it more efficient. Here are some suggestions.


    1. When a user selects text for indexing, automatically look up that text in the index listing and display those that match. Often the text with say "John Smith" but his name is in the index as" John H. Smith." When a user selects text with "Smith" in it, have a window that displays all entries with "Smith," allowing the proper one to be selected.


    2. Clicking to open lists under first letters is…

  14. Automatically update the preview in the index panel

    Currently, when users make a change to an index entry the result page range listing is not automatically. Users have to select Update Preview from the Index panel. Why not make the index list automatically update whenever a change is made?

  16. Master Pages need to have one more control

    Designing a brochure, at times i need the footer and header design etc. Master page is a huge tool was a huge help but i think it need one more feature. Master page should have the power to bring forward or entirely back of any design in layer.

  17. IDML file icon in Windows Explorer almost indistinguishable from INDD file icon

    I don't know who was the genius behind this change of InDesign file icons, but it's very time-consuming, most of the time i will open the IDML file instead of INDD file or viceversa. Probably for people working with few files is not a big deal, but when you work with tens of files, it's a hassle to constantly need to check the file extension. It cannot be changed from Explorer, you need a third party tool to do this on Win 10, which i don't wanna use.

  19. Option to search child folders when using Relink to Folder

    Have a checkbox that tells indesign to also search child folders when using the "Relink to Folder" feature. To keep it from searching too far, you could also include a box to specify how many "layers" down to check.

  20. Multiple footnote referencing

    I thought of a way to implement multiple references to the same footnote without breaking HTML links between footnotes.

    You could allow for the creation of multiple footnote links from the text into footnotes that point to the same footnote, with a sequence of different secondary designations. For example, footnote 1a, 1b, 1c... all could point to Footnote 1. Then, in the footnote, you could open with 1 a b c ..., with the different letters providing alternate linkbacks to the other places in the text.

    This is how Wikipedia handles multiple referencing to the same citation, so there's precedent.…
